Wireless charging pioneer WiTricity has announced a new software application for designing and developing highly resonant wireless power transfer systems. WiCAD is an end-to-end simulation environment designed to enable developers to streamline the design process and avoid the high cost of trial-and-error physical prototyping.
WiCAD provides a library of commonly used WiTricity energy transfer designs to help developers build customized solutions based on WiTricity’s patented technology. The modeling and simulation process guides users through three main phases of development: resonator design, system design and fine tuning.
“Highly resonant wireless power transfer is a complex science and our goal as a company is to make it as widely available as possible,” said Eric Giler, CEO of WiTricity. “We created WiCAD with this goal in mind, giving developers direct access to the expertise that results from years of working with electromagnetic and power electronics design, and enabling a simulation environment to ensure they get it right the first time around.”
