Nikola Labs Technology

Nikola Labs’ wireless power technology is based on a novel RF energy harvesting circuit invented by CTO Dr. Chi-Chih Chen, while he was a research professor at OSU’s world-renown Electroscience Laboratory. The technology, known as radio frequency to direct current (RF to DC), works by sending a RF signal from an existing or dedicated transmitter to a receiving device that interprets radio waves into realizable power. The interpretation is done by first capturing the RF energy on an antenna, rectifying the wave, boosting voltage and managing the DC power to charge a storage element of directly operate a device.
