Nichicon, a world leader in manufacturing electronic components, and Powercast Corporation, the leader in radio-frequency (RF)-based over-the-air wireless power technology, are collaborating to add RF charging capabilities to Nichicon’s new series of Small Lithium Titanate Oxide (LTO) Rechargeable Batteries (SLBs). The companies’ technologies combine to wirelessly power sustainable, maintenance-free, rechargeable-battery-based IoT devices and networks. Both Nichicon (booth #729) and Powercast (booth #840) will demonstrate the solution at Sensors Converge in Santa Clara, CA, June 20 – 22, 2023.

“The ability to power green, sustainable devices can solve the main problem IoT deployments face - battery replacement,” said Charles Greene, PhD, COO and CTO of Powercast. “We are teaming with Nichicon whose long-life rechargeable batteries can store the energy generated by Powercast Technology and repeatedly discharge it over and over as needed.”

“This collaborative effort allows companies to develop environmentally-friendly smart home IoT ecosystems that eliminate disposable batteries,” said Craig Anderson, President of Nichicon America. “Our vision is to make IoT more sustainable now and into the future.”
