RF Wireless Charging Leader Unveils Powerful One-Chip Solution Including
Power Management Following Strategic Partnership Announcement

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dialog
Semiconductor plc
(XETRA:DLG),
a provider of highly integrated power management, AC/DC power
conversion, solid state lighting and Bluetooth(R) low energy technology,
in partnership with Energous
Corporation
(NASDAQ: WATT), the developer of WattUp(R), a
revolutionary wire-free charging technology that provides over-the-air
power at a distance, today announced the availability of the DA4100
RF-transmit Integrated Circuit (IC). The new IC greatly simplifies the
implementation of WattUp wireless power transmitter systems making them
smaller and more cost-effective.

The new DA4100
WattUp IC is the first chip to be made available following the
announcement of Dialog Semiconductor’s strategic partnership and
investment in Energous Corporation in November 2016. The investment and
partnership saw Dialog become the exclusive component supplier of WattUp
ICs and allows Energous to leverage Dialog’s broad sales and
distribution channels to accelerate market adoption.

“We’re pleased to see the first results of our partnership with Energous
Corporation in the form of the WattUp wireless power RF-transmit IC,”
said Mark Tyndall, Senior Vice President, Corporate Development and
Strategy, Dialog Semiconductor. “We partnered with Energous because we
see the potential of their technology to revolutionize the wireless
charging landscape, and we believe this new IC will demonstrate how our
partnership can transform device charging.”

“This new IC will be the backbone of transmitters moving forward and our
efforts to miniaturize and reduce costs will allow WattUp transmitters
to be included in-the-box with many consumer devices,” said Stephen R.
Rizzone, president and CEO of Energous. “By combining multiple discrete
components present in our early reference designs into a single silicon
chip, we can significantly reduce the cost and silicon footprint
requirements of our transmitters while decreasing the bill of materials
for our customers.”

The WattUp wireless power RF-transmit IC integrates the ARM(R)
Cortex(R)M0+, RF transmitter and power management functionality into a
single 7mm x 7mm IC. It also features on-chip DC-DC conversion and
software, providing seamless integration to Dialog’s SmartBond(TM)
family of highly integrated, low power BLE
SoCs. The new IC minimizes required board space, enabling ultra-small
charging transmitters and simplifying WattUp’s wireless power
transmitter system implementation.

Evaluation kits of the DA4100
WattUp wireless power RF-transmit IC are sampling now. For more

About Energous Corporation

Energous Corporation is the developer of WattUp(R) — an award-winning,
wire-free charging technology that will transform the way consumers and
industries charge and power electronic devices at home, in the office,
in the car and beyond. WattUp is a revolutionary radio frequency (RF)
based charging solution that delivers intelligent, scalable power via
radio bands, similar to a Wi-Fi router. WattUp differs from older
wireless charging systems in that it delivers contained power, at a
distance, to multiple devices — thus resulting in a wire-free
experience that saves users from having to remember to plug in their
devices. For more information, please visit Energous.com, or follow
