Technology

If you understand making a cell phone call or connecting to WiFi, you’ve already mastered WiGL.

Our technology converts any wall outlet, vehicle charger or power source into a smart electric power router/antenna. WiGL finds and communicates device-to-device, using WiFi or 5G.

WiGL sends directed power on demand to your devices to operate or recharge, turning any electrical power source or electrical device into a smarter wireless wide, local or personal area (SWAN, SWLAN, SWPAN) transmitter.

WiGL’s receiver communicates with the SWAN, SWLAN and/or SWPAN to ensure energy is focused, tracked and optimally received.

Generation: 0
Distance Rx – Tx (feet) Pulse width (ms) Voltage (V) Pulse Power (mW) Pulse current (mA) Pulse period (avg of 10 readings)(s)
1 235.32 5.32 to 3.76 135.4 40.4 5.2
2 219.78 5.32 to 3.76 135.4 40.4 4.6
3 239.76 5.32 to 3.76 135.4 40.4 2.32
4 238.52 5.32 to 3.76 135.4 40.4 3.3

Using non optimized COTS RF diode circuit:
Power generation:

  • 125 mA at 5 V
  • 200 mA at 3.3 V

With improved RF diode/power management, anticipate improvement of 60%.

Number of Rx Boards = 15
P = 35 dBm
R = 156.7 Ohm

Note: No current power supply weight data provided. Our assumption is that our Rx weighs less than the current power supply.
