“Fulton’s eCoupled technology allows organizations such as ECA and L&P to easily, and affordably, implement the Qi standard. The technology also allows for advanced features such as integration with NFC, multi-range power transfer, and spatial freedom. Think of our technology as a foundation to build wireless power functionality into a broad range of devices,” said Mr. Baarman.
