Humavox and Asahi Kasei Microdevices Present New Health Tracking and Wireless Charging Chip for Wearables

Humavox and AKM have teamed up to create a wearable integrated module with unique new sensing technology that supports wireless charging and health tracking applications

NEW YORK — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 24, 2017Humavox, ( a leader in the wireless charging space, has partnered with Asahi Kasei Microdevices (AKM) to create the first module for wearables equipped with seamless wireless charging capabilities and health tracking functionality. The new module demo is infused with a Photoplethysmogram (PPG) chip and includes a BLE transmitter, ultra low power consumption voltage detector, and Humavox’s wireless charging. The module will be will be on display in wearable devices at the ICFF Expo in New York from May 21 - 24.

Humavox is making wireless charging tangible for widespread use in wearables and IoT. With new tech hitting the market constantly, the amount of chargers in our lives continuously grows. Humavox’s wireless charging technology eliminates this frustration over tangled cords. The Humavox ETERNA Platform enables any object, such as a backpack or bowl to be transformed into a charging station. Just toss your Humavox-enabled wearable in and charging instantly begins.

AKM, a Japanese company specializing in Radio Frequency (RF) chips, creates semiconductors found in numerous top tiered OEM products in the consumer electronics, automotive, and telecommunications market. The new chip developed by AKM shows that Humavox’s wireless charging technology can easily be integrated into wearables, and truly revolutionizes the wearable world by presenting a seamless user experience. The chip comes equipped with both Humavox’s wireless charging technology and the ability to track various health features. Instead of buying a wearable and shopping separately for a wireless charger, users can now get it all in one. Similarly, wearable manufacturers can use this chip technology to incorporate wireless charging into fitness tracking wearables.

The result of Humavox’s wireless charging technology coupled with AKM’s new chip is a health tracking wearable that will also exhibit Humavox’s “drop and charge” capabilities.

“This is yet another great step in making Humavox technology accessible to the consumers, I’m proud to collaborate with AKM, one of the best global semiconductor companies, to develop the first ever chip equipped with wireless charging and health tracking capabilities.” Says Omri Lachman, CEO and Co-Founder of Humavox, “I expect more collaborations like this to come in the future as the efficacy of wireless charging spreads.”
