  • Patent number: 11411440
    Abstract: A transmitter assembly is useful in optimizing the delivery of wireless power to a plurality of receivers. Each receiver measures its own battery need for power and transmits that measurement as a request to the transmitter. The transmitter is configured to normalize and compare battery need requests. The transmitter then allocates pulses of wireless power among the requesting receivers according to their battery need.

  • Publication number: 20220014049
    Abstract: A Timing Acquisition Module (TAM) associated with a wireless power transmission systems (WPTS) is disclosed herein. The TAM is configured to receive encoded beacons broadcast by wireless power receiver clients requesting power on demand. The TAM decodes the encoded beacons to identify respective client broadcast and notifies the WPTS that a client is requesting power. In turn, the WPTS transmits wireless power signals to the client. The WPTS and client may use separate beacons or signals to command the client to broadcast its WPTS beacon. Phases of a beacon are detected by antennas in the WPTS antenna array, and based on the beacon, the wireless power signals are transmitted from the WPTS to the client. Multiple apparatus including a combination of a WPTS and TAM may be implemented in a wireless power environment in a cooperative manner, enabling a client to move within the environment while supporting power on demand.

  • Patent number: 11101705
    Abstract: Timing Acquisition Module (TAM) configured for use in or associated with a WTPS and associated methods, apparatus, and systems. The TAM is configured to receive encoded beacons broadcast by wireless power receiver clients requesting power on demand. The TAM decodes the encoded beacons to identify which client broadcast the beacon and notifies the WPTS that a client is requesting power, along with an identifier of that client. In response, the WPTS transmits wireless power signals to the client to service the power request. The WPTS and client may use separate beacons or signals to command the client to broadcast its WPTS beacon, whereby phases of the beacon signal are detected by antennas in the WPTS antenna array and processed to direct the wireless power signals from the WPTS to the client. Multiple apparatus including a combination of a WPTS and TAM may be implemented in a wireless power environment in a cooperative manner, enabling a client to move within the environment while supporting power on demand.

  • Publication number: 20210249910
    Abstract: In retrodirective wireless power delivery environments wireless power receivers generate and send beacon signals that are received by multiple antennas of a wireless power transmission system. The beacon signals provide the charger with timing information for wireless power transfers and also indicate directionality of the incoming signal. As discussed herein, the directionality information is employed when transmitting in order to focus energy (e.g., power wave delivery) on individual wireless power receiver clients. Techniques are described herein for reducing the burden of sampling the beacon signals across the multiple antennas and determining the directionality of the incoming wave. In some embodiments, the techniques leverage previously calculated values to simplify the receiver sampling.
