Battery-free, ultra-compact, ultra-low-cost, and ultra-low-power consumption are all features of Zero-Power Communication devices. Maintenance expenses, waste, and pollution connected with present electronic equipment can all be reduced with these gadgets.
OPPO is best known as a smartphone manufacturer, but it is also a company heavily involved in the research and development of telecommunications and mobile technology in general, particularly at the cutting edge and as it relates to 5G and beyond.
“Electronics manufacturers may use Zero-Power Communications technology to remove batteries from their devices, lowering costs and minimizing environmental impact”, OPPO’s Chief 5G Scientist, Henry Tang.
Oppo has now released a report named ‘Zero-Power Communication,’ which strives for a world without batteries. According to research, Bluetooth, WiFi, and RF signals may all be used to charge gadgets.
To put it another way, gadgets that take power from these sources will not require a battery.
OPPO, on the other hand, claims that its recently developed Zero-Power Communication (ZPC) technology might be the final answer to the problem. Given that radiofrequency (RF) energy is pretty ubiquitous by now, and is likely to be relatively abundant depending on the number of cell towers, base stations, Wi-Fi access points, and even TVs or mobile devices around, the OEM’s new kind of power source might be able to keep devices with these ZPC modules present on.
To that end, OPPO claims to have a functional ZPC system as a proof-of-concept and has released a white paper on the technology.
