WATERTOWN, Mass. -- October 7, 2013

WiTricity, the industry pioneer in Highly Resonant Wireless Power Transfer
technology, today announced WiCAD, an end-to-end simulation environment for
designing and developing Highly Resonant Wireless Power Transfer systems. The
tool, a software application deployed on a subscription basis, enables
developers to streamline the design process, avoid the high cost of
trial-and-error physical prototyping, and significantly reduce the time to
market of products.

As WiTricity’s Highly Resonant Wireless Power Transfer technology continues to
widen its foothold in the market, the ability to conceptualize and simulate
wireless power components and systems in a quick and efficient way is a key
competitive advantage. WiCAD provides a modeling environment optimized for
wireless energy transfer over distance that allows developers to stay focused
on product creation and innovation, without having to invest in development of
their own simulation tools based on conventional modeling and mathematics

WiCAD provides a library of commonly used WiTricity energy transfer designs as
well as end-to-end simulation capabilities that help guide developers through
the different steps needed to develop customized solutions based on
WiTricity’s patented technology. The modeling and simulation process guides
users through three main phases of development:

  *Resonator Design: Design the source and device resonators, simulate power
    transfer, and calculate power transfer efficiency and levels
  *System Design: Design the source and device electronics including
    impedance matching networks to match the resonators, simulate end-to-end
    power transfer, and calculate the associated performance data
  *Fine Tuning: Refine the model with laboratory measurements to optimize
    power transfer efficiency while factoring real world  performance

IHI Corporation of Tokyo, Japan, a multinational leader in providing highly
engineered systems for energy generation and infrastructure, shipbuilding, and
aerospace, is a licensee of Highly Resonant Wireless Power Transfer of
WiTricity. Sadao Degawa, Executive Vice President, IHI Corporation states:
“There are many applications for wireless power that IHI hopes to
commercialize. WiCAD is an important tool that will accelerate our development

“We are excited to provide developers with a tool that helps them to quickly
model, design, and fine-tune the wireless products of tomorrow,” said Eric
Giler, CEO of WiTricity. “Highly resonant wireless power transfer is a complex
science and our goal as a company is to make it as widely available as
possible. 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.”
