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

London, United Kingdom - January 30, 2017 - 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 information on the WattUp transmitter technology,

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
