IDT Introduces High-Efficiency 15 W Wireless Power Development Kit

Integrated Device Technology has introduced a high-efficiency 15 W wireless power reference design kit that supports the latest Wireless Power Consortium Qi 1.2.2 specification. The compact wireless power transmitter and receiver in the new kit operate at 87 percent efficiency, an industry best that rivals the performance of wired solutions and translates to reduced power dissipation and heat - resulting in faster battery charging times.

With this latest 15 Watt kit, IDT now presents an off-the-shelf library of turnkey wireless power solutions covering the range 1 to 15 Watts. The 15 W kit is ideal for infrastructure that can benefit from higher power transfer - places like the home, office or cafés - as well as tablets, industrial portable scanners, Bluetooth speakers and mobile accessories such as charging pads, smartphone sleeves and cases.

Wireless power provides convenience by removing the need for charging cables, which are prone to getting lost, misplaced or broken. The technology also enables water and dust-proofing protection for electronics and eliminates the problem of worn-out or damaged mechanical charging ports. Previously, IDT introduced wireless power kits for designs targeting 1 - 3 W and 5 W applications.

The new kit features the IDT P9242-R transmitter and P9221-R receiver, flexible ARM-based devices that deliver fast charging capabilities combined with the industry’s highest level of integration. Similar to its predecessors, the 15 Watt kit enables immediate prototyping, allowing engineers to incorporate wireless charging capabilities into their designs in a matter of hours. The kit offers an optimized thermal design and seamless integration with the drop-in reference layout provided.

The kit's layout module enables direct instantiation on to a system board, while an optimized and fully tested BOM takes the guesswork out of component selection. An extensive digital library of collateral eliminates traditional design and support barriers regardless of application volume. Support materials include user manuals, layout guides, layout instantiation modules, schematics, bill-of-materials (BOM), Gerber files, and more.  

At CES 2017, next month in Las Vegas, IDT will present demonstrate the latest in wireless power products and technology. The new wireless power kit containing the transmitter, receiver and additional coils is available now. Free samples are available for approved customers. Click here to learn more.
