Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Ultrasonic wireless energy sounds interesting. Can I test it?

A:

Yes! We’ve developed a series of evaluation kits so you can test and validate the technology for your own application. The kits range from a basic transmitter and receiver combo to a computer-vision-aided transmitter with multiple receivers. Please contact partnerships@ubeam.com to discuss your application needs with us.

Q: When will I see this technology in the market?

A:

uBeam is licensing the wireless energy technology, and we work with our partners to build it into their products. The ultimate market release depends on our partners’ production processes and product launch timelines.

Q: Is this technology safe?

A:

Yes. Unlike electromagnetic waves (such as RF), ultrasound doesn’t penetrate the skin. In addition to that, the majority of the energy is deflected off the skin anyway. Furthermore, we’ve done more than 20 months of literature and safety studies, both internally and externally, with 3rd party research firms. The results are favorable, showing no observable safety impact.

Q: How much power can uBeam transmit?

A:

While the exact amount of power is based on the size of the transmitter and receiver as well as the distance in between them, uBeam can safely transmit watts-level power within a couple of feet, and milliwatt-level of power at tens of feet away.

Q: What makes uBeam better than other power harvesting technologies that are currently available?

A:

While we believe there are applications suitable for energy harvesting, ultrasonic wireless energy can provide orders of magnitude more power than various energy harvesting methods, and do so safely. This provides IoT networks with Always On Wireless Power and allows the entire network to be more robust and resilient.

Q: Is there a datasheet?

A:

Yes. Our datasheet and application notes are available to our partners. Please contact partnerships@ubeam.com to discuss your application needs with a uBeam representative.

Q: How mature is uBeam’s technology? Are you ready to scale?

A:

uBeam has spent the last few years designing key proprietary components and ensuring that they are built for mass production. Recently, uBeam has developed partnerships with contract manufacturers who have the capability to scale as needed.

Q: How do I become a partner?

A:

The first step is to start a conversation to make sure uBeam’s ultrasonic wireless energy technology is a fit for your application needs.
