IDT Teams with Blu Wireless to Unite Wireless Charging and WiGig Data Transmission

26 MAY 2015

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) announced its collaboration with Blu Wireless Technology to demonstrate integrated wireless charging with ultra-fast 60 GHz WiGig® data transmission, a combination that will enable consumers to charge their phones and tablets while streaming the highest quality 4K HD video and photos to their televisions and computers – all without the need for cords.
The collaboration will team IDT’s expertise in wireless power with Blu Wireless’s know-how in WiGig, which allows devices to communicate wirelessly at multi-gigabit speeds. The single-module technology targeted by the companies will, for example, enable consumers to wirelessly charge their devices while cordlessly transmitting uncompressed video of 1080p directly to their HDTV.
WiGig technology uses the 60 GHz band to deliver 7 GHz bandwidth. A synchronization of data on a portable device that today would take two hours and use up nearly a third of a battery’s charge can be completed, with WiGig, in just 45 seconds and consume only 2 percent of the charge. IDT’s semiconductors are enabling wireless charging today in a quickly growing ecosystem of applications that includes smartphones and accessories, wearables and furniture.
