Integrated Device Technology, Inc. introduced its “Wireless Power Share™” technology, a cutting-edge innovation that will enable consumers to wirelessly charge a mobile
device from another device. The semiconductor is a multi-mode, multi-function chip—receiver and transmitter—that supports all major wireless power standards for magnetic resonance and magnetic induction charging. With IDT’s Wireless PowerShare technology, consumers will be able to charge their wearable devices by simply setting them atop or near an enabled smart phone. The new wireless power solution, a member of IDT’s P9700 series of semiconductors, enables a seamless transition between the three leading standards: the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) standard for magnetic resonance and the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) standards for magnetic induction. The chip delivers 5 W to 10 W of output power and offers a proprietary mode that provides greater flexibility to OEMs.
