Efacec Electric Mobility, a global supplier of energy, engineering, environment and transportation solutions, has licensed Qualcomm Halo wireless electric vehicle charging technology to commercialise WEVC systems for Plug-In Hybrid (PHEVs) and Electric Vehicles (EVs). Under the terms of the agreement, Qualcomm granted to Efacec a royalty-bearing license to develop, make and supply WEVC systems for the EV Supply Equipment (EVSE) industry.
Efacec intends to commercialize Qualcomm Halo technology to bring to market efficient and interoperable wireless charging infrastructure solutions, eliminating the need for charging cables and simplifying the EVs charging process.
The simplicity and efficiency benefits of WEVC, for industry and ultimately for drivers, are obvious. We will commercialise WEVC infrastructure for our customers, offering smarter and cleaner ways to charge EVs, which complement the offer we have on conductive charging. We believe Qualcomm Halo technology delivers the most advanced and comprehensive WEVC technology available today.—Pedro Silva, Efacec Electric Mobility’s Managing Director
Qualcomm Halo WEVC technology offers an improved level of magnetic interoperability through its BiPolar base pad architecture; BiPolar allows highly efficient coupling to various vehicular pad architectures such as Circular, Solenoid, and the advanced Double D magnetics. Qualcomm continues to expand commercial relationships across the EV ecosystem, reinforcing the value of its technology, and its engineering and collaborative approach.
