Wireless charging expert, Shanghai Magway Magnetic, has announced the use of Semtech’s LinkCharge wireless charging platform in its new commercial 22mm long distance smartphone wireless charger. By using the technology in their new products, Shanghai Magway Magnetic has greatly simplified the installation process of sub-surface charging modules for customers in the furniture and infrastructure businesses.
