Company shows mobile phones with standards-based wireless power fully integrated into devices, without changing the form factor
ORLANDO — March 21, 2011 — Fulton Innovation (www.fultoninnovation.com), the creator and exclusive licensor of eCoupled™ intelligent wireless power, will be at MobileFocus during CTIA International 2011 to show a variety of brand-name mobile phones where wireless power technology is integrated directly into handsets. Unlike after-market sleeves that need to be attached to the phone after purchase, Fulton has been working with mobile phone manufacturers to have full integration of wireless power technology into their phones, retaining the original design and form factor.
Thanks to the Qi global standard from the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) for low-powered devices, the mobile phones that Fulton will be showing can be used with a multitude of charging surfaces that meet the Qi standard.
Fulton will again be showing how wireless power can even be integrated into packaging. A mobile phone box that lights up and flashes at passers-by will also be showcased at the event. Also on display will be phones and other devices charging wireless on various surfaces –wood, plastic, and glass – demonstrating that there are almost no limitations to how and where devices can be powered wirelessly.
"Our depth and breadth of experience in wireless power integration for mobile phones, along with our patent portfolio, is what sets us apart from the pack and enables us to work with the top global mobile phone manufacturers," said Dave Baarman, Director of Advanced Technologies for Fulton Innovation. "As the industry continues to evolve, it’s clear the next frontier our technology enables is spatial freedom, which will give consumers the ability to place devices anywhere on a surface or below a present surface for power. As we utilize our technology to enable these additional capabilities, there is literally no limit to the applications of wireless power in our everyday lives."
Fulton Innovation will be exhibiting at MobileFocus during CTIA on Tuesday, March 22nd at the Peabody Orlando Hotel.
