Press Release - The Phoenix wireless power solution by Spark Connected

Spark Connected Wireless Power Solution for LiDAR in Autonomous Vehicles

Spark Connected’s new solution named Phoenix, is designed and engineered to wirelessly power LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) applications.

DALLAS, TEXAS. August 20, 2019.

Spark Connected, a leading technology developer of advanced and innovative wireless power system solutions, today announced a proprietary high-performance wireless power solution, named The Phoenix designed and engineered for LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) applications.

From self-driving autonomous vehicles to automated services robots in residential to floor robots in connected factories (Industry 4.0), LiDAR can be used to measure distance to a target by illuminating the target with laser light and measuring the reflected light with a sensor and thereby creating a 3D map for the application to operate.

“Basic concepts of LIDAR are the same as radar and sonar. While the technology has been around for a while LiDAR is finding more applications as we live in a more automated world. The Phoenix is a unique solution that can power this technology wirelessly in brushless motor environments,” said Emanuel Stingu, Chief Technology Officer at Spark Connected.

Key Features of the Spark Connected Phoenix Wireless Power Solution:

  • Up to 30W power delivery across higher distances and through rotating assemblies
  • Solution includes transmitter and receiver
  • Custom and irregular shaped charging coils
  • Powered by the Infineon AURIX™ or XMC™ Wireless Power Controller
