Title
(EN) EAR-WEARABLE DEVICE HAVING TUNNEL WITH RECEIVER COIL
(FR) DISPOSITIF POUVANT ÊTRE PORTÉ SUR L'OREILLE AYANT UN TUNNEL AVEC BOBINE DE RÉCEPTION
Abstract
(EN)
An ear-wearable device (100) includes a shell (102) shaped for wearing in a user's ear. The shell (102) comprises a tunnel wall (116) shaped to define a tunnel (108) that passes through the ear- wearable device (100). The ear-wearable device (100) includes a receiver coil (204) that is formed in or around the tunnel wall (116) of the tunnel (108). The receiver coil (204) is configured to inductively couple with a power coil (200) via the tunnel (108) and to inductively receive electromagnetic power from the power coil (200), and the receiver coil is configured to convert the electromagnetic power to an electrical current. The ear-wearable device (100) includes one or more electrical components (210) encased within the shell (102) and configured to receive the electrical current from the receiver coil (204).
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif pouvant être porté sur l'oreille (100) comprenant une coque (102) formée pour être portée dans l'oreille d'un utilisateur. La coque (102) comprend une paroi de tunnel (116) formée pour définir un tunnel (108) qui passe à travers le dispositif pouvant être porté (100). Le dispositif pouvant être porté (100) comprend une bobine de réception (204) qui est formée dans ou autour de la paroi de tunnel (116) du tunnel (108). La bobine de réception (204) est configurée pour se coupler par induction à une bobine d'alimentation (200) par l'intermédiaire du tunnel (108) et pour recevoir par induction de l'énergie électromagnétique provenant de la bobine d'alimentation (200), et la bobine de récepteur est configurée pour convertir la puissance électromagnétique en un courant électrique. Le dispositif pouvant être porté sur l'oreille (100) comprend un ou plusieurs composants électriques (210) enfermés à l'intérieur de la coque (102) et configurés pour recevoir le courant électrique provenant de la bobine de récepteur (204).
