Semtech has announced the addition of dual-mode WPC Qi 1.2 and PMA SR1E medium power 15W capability to its TS80000 portfolio of wireless charging solutions. This allows customers to support the growing market of portable electronics with increased battery capacity for quick charging medical and industrial devices, smartphones and tablets.
Semtech’s medium power wireless charging technology is in production today and can be easily integrated into existing portable devices as well as infrastructure and automotive applications. The TS80K family of solutions can support both receiver and transmitter applications. Complete reference designs and easy-to-use evaluation kits allow customers to implement the technology into their next-gen products with minimal effort.
“Semtech first demonstrated a medium power 20W wireless charging notebook computer at CES 2013, proving that wireless charging can be used for applications beyond just smart phones,” said Ken Moore, Vice President and General Manager, Triune Product Group, Semtech. “It is exciting to see that the markets are beginning to embrace a technology that allows today’s mobile consumer to quickly charge their devices without wires.”
The TS80K wireless charging platform supports all major wireless charging standards in multi-mode (for both transmitter and receiver applications), works in multiple configurations and form factors and can quickly be adapted to support evolving wireless charging standards. The platform is the only product on the market that supports a wide range of power solutions ranging from 100mW low power wearable solutions to 100W high power solutions for industrial tools, medical equipment and “connected” furniture applications.
Multi-mode receiver solutions ranging from 100mW to more than 20W of output power allows compatibility between all transmitters supporting any of the three industry standards. Multi-mode transmitter solutions available for all power levels, from 100mW to over 40W, allows embedded charging capability in furniture, vehicles and public venues that can support all three standards based on a single, easy to use, cost effective platform.
