Qi Based Extended Power Profile Wireless Charging Solution Reduces Smartphone Charge time by 30%

LG Electronics and Integrated Device Technology have partnered on the world's first implementation of Qi wireless charging Extended Power Profile (EPP) in a flagship smartphone, the LG V30. The Extended Power Profile (EPP) enables safe, wireless fast charging capability while remaining compatible with existing Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), Qi 5W, baseline transmitters commonly used today.

IDT's wireless power chips are designed to provide fast wireless charging by reducing charge times by up to 30 percent. The addition of the wireless charging feature contributes to the water-resistance and durability of the sleek, low profile, Qi-certified smartphone design.

LG's latest flagship sets a new standard in the evolution of premium smartphones with its offering of optimal multimedia capabilities. The V30 features many industry innovations - the first F1.6 aperture glass Crystal Clear Lens, the first OLED FullVision display, Cine Video mode for producing movie-quality videos, premium sound with advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC and sound tuning by B&O PLAY.

The IDT wireless power receiver is based on a flexible 32-bit ARM M0 core architecture that has allowed LG to optimize wireless charging performance and the charging speed.
