IDT Expands Wireless Power Portfolio with the ’ Most-Integrated’ Power Transmitter Solutions
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) announced what is claimed to be the industry's most integrated wireless power transmitter solutions optimized for the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) Tx-A5, Tx-A6, and Tx-A11 configurations. The new products expand IDT's portfolio of WPC Qi-compliant magnetic induction transmitters with solutions optimized for single-coil 5 V and three-coil 12 V applications.
The IDTP9035 and IDTP9036 are high-efficiency, feature-rich wireless power transmitters. The IDTP9035 is designed to meet the requirements of the WPC Tx-A5 and Tx-A11 (5 V) specifications, while the IDTP9036 is designed to meet the WPC Tx-A6 (12 V) specification. The IDTP9035 is optimized for a single-coil configuration with a standard 5V supply input, allowing customers to reduce their bill-of-materials (BOM) with cost-effective, low-voltage power adaptors. The IDTP9036 supports a three-coil configuration and accepts a 12 V supply, making it ideal for automotive applications. As with IDT's previously-released IDT9030 (Tx-A1) Qi-certified transmitter, both new transmitters are fully compatible with any Qi-compliant receiver, such as the IDTP9020. Qi-compliant wireless power solutions are gaining strong traction in charging pad, automotive, industrial, and other consumer electronics applications.
"We've expanded our award-winning wireless power portfolio to address additional markets and applications," said Arman Naghavi, vice president and general manager of the Analog and Power Division at IDT. "Our new transmitter solutions are the first of their kind, providing significant system-level integration and optimization, while meeting the requirements of the WPC Tx-A5, Tx-A6, and Tx-A11 specifications. This enables our customers to significantly reduce their system component count, board area, and cost to deliver superior wireless charging products in convenient and attractive form factors."
Similar to the IDTP9030, the highly integrated IDTP9035 and IDTP9036 solutions significantly reduce board footprint and BOM cost compared to existing solutions. Both devices are capable of multi-mode operation, supporting both the Qi standard as well as proprietary formats for improved safety, added features, and increased power output capability. The IDTP9035 and IDTP9036 are currently sampling to qualified customers and are available in a 48-lead 6 x 6 mm VFQFPN package.
