new wireless power reference kitSAN JOSE, CA: Integrated Device Technology (IDT) has launched a new wireless power reference kit to enable integration of wireless charging into compact electronic devices such as smart-watches, headphones, health and fitness trackers and portable medical devices.

The firm’s Qi-based transmitter and receiver reference kit is best fit to electronic equipments requiring 3 W or less with an application range within 0.5 – 3 W. The kit includes both transmitter (P9235A-R) and receiver (P9027LP-R) which supports various applications, form factors and power levels. In addition, the comprehensive kit enables immediate prototyping, enabling engineers to incorporate wireless charging capabilities into their ultra-compact designs in a matter of hours.

IDT specializes in the development of a broad range of low-power, high performance mixed-signal semiconductors solutions that optimize the customer’s applications in key markets. Being an innovator of high-performance Integrated Circuits (IC) designed specifically for wireless infrastructure applications such as 4G, 5G and cloud RAN, the company provides semiconductors targeting communications infrastructure—both for wired and wireless high-performance computing, to reduce problems with connectivity and performance, as well as power management.

“Our technology includes low latency interconnect, leading-edge high-speed memory interface products, a huge portfolio of timing solutions and power management IC’s,” says Sean Fan, Vice President and General Manager, IDT. Besides, the new power kit enables direct instantiation on to a system board along with managing barriers regardless of application volume. It offers seamless integration with the drop-in reference layout, and an optimized thermal design meanwhile delivering 80 percent system efficiency at 3 W.

The company has so far delivered 70 million wireless power devices and at present anticipates large-scale wireless power adoption in segments such as smart-watches, fitness and health monitors.
