WiBotic and GaN Systems Partner on High-Power Wireless Charging

May 2, 2019 Alix Paultre

WiBotic is partnering with GaN Systems to provide off-the-shelf solutions for rapidly charging the rapidly-growing robotics ecosystem. By enabling operation at a high switching frequency, GaN power semiconductors delivers high power capability with the spatial freedom (large air gaps) needed in the design of charging systems that require no human intervention. WiBotic’s, off-the-shelf, fully automatic, and highly intelligent wireless power system incorporate GaN Systems’ technology to enable very high efficiency levels for rapid charging at hundreds of watts or more.

“GaN provides high reliability and when coupled with wireless power systems from WiBotic, the technologies provide an extremely robust and reliable system that never wears out,” said Ben Waters, WiBotic CEO and co-founder. “We chose GaN Systems as a strategic partner because of its unique and best-in-class GaN technology. The result of this partnership is new wireless power solutions that offer higher power delivery across a wide range of applications.”

“Our partnership with WiBotic underscores how wireless charging solutions using GaN technology are changing the world. GaN power semiconductors, operating at high frequency, are enabling several wireless charging advantages from higher power capability to significant levels of spatial freedom that are needed in multiple industries,” added Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems.
