eCoupled combines NFC and wireless charging

Fulton Innovation has added NFC communications capability to its eCoupled wireless charging technology.


By combining NFC and wireless power transmission in one device, manufacturers can “reduce costs and form factor, while providing consumers with the features they demand”, the US firm says.

“The features we’ve been implementing — multi-range power, NFC, and spatial freedom — allow manufacturers increased freedom with designs and form factors,” explains Dave Baarman, director of advanced technologies at Fulton. “Consumers want the convenience that wirelessly powered devices provide, with more flexibility for where and how they can use them. We believe the ability to transfer both power and information, along with additional design options, enables the future of wireless power.”
