Wireless Power Is Becoming Increasingly Important
Qi/Wireless Charging is rapidly becoming a significant growth area, utilised in a surprising variety of applications. Volume growth is being driven by consumer appetite for battery powered portable electronic devices and the inconvenience of keeping them charged. As the rollout of devices capable of wireless charging continues to grow, wireless power will soon become an expected feature of modern devices and products.
The modules are ideal for medical, industrial, scientific or commercial applications requiring a robust wireless charging design that is easy and quick to implement. Wireless charging is perfect for hazardous, humid or dirty environments where frequent maintenance is an issue.Contacts News
Plug & Play Solutions and Modular Concepts
The portfolio covers both – plug and play solutions including external wallmount adapters for single or triple coil applications and modular concepts for the transmitter and receiver side. For fast design cycles Eval boards are available. The first modules in a new range designed to make introduction of wireless power and charging products simple. The new modules are based on the widely accepted and increasingly adopted Qi standard released by the Wireless Power Consortium back in 2009.
About the Qi Standard
Qi based wireless power transfer works on the principle of magnetic induction, where two closely coupled coils transfer power between each other. It’s the same principle that battery powered rechargeable electric toothbrushes have worked on for years! The coils can be aligned by simple placement (A10 type) or magnetical y aligned (A1 type) for easy placement. These modules are capable of delivering up to 5W of power to the receiver side, as per the first release Qi standard.
The idea behind Qi is simple: al devices with the Qi logo will work with al Qi chargers. That’s it. No need for separate chargers, no need for cables, and no need for adapters when travelling. Qi is a global standard – this means that your device can be charged wirelessly wherever you are. Qi is the proven leader in wireless charging. Qi has unrivalled reach, delivers the best user experience, and is moving the fastest to bring new wireless charging innovations to market.
Ideal for Medical, Industrial, Scientific or Commercial Applications
Modules are ideal for medical, industrial, scientific or commercial applications requiring a robust wireless charging design that is easy and quick to implement. Plans are already in place for higher power versions of Qi, starting with a 15W solution and moving on to a 120W solution. Wireless charging is perfect for hazardous, humid or dirty environments where frequent maintenance is an issue. Standards based charging also removes the need for device specific power supplies. The module is designed for simple integration, requiring the addition of just a few extra components.
