GaN Systems-powered Eggtronic technologies on show at CES 2019
07 January 2019
From 8-11 January, Eggtronic will showcase its highly innovative technologies to the world’s biggest exhibition of consumer technologies, where all next-generation innovations are introduced to the market.
CES, global stage for innovation with its 170,000 participants, is the world’s gathering place for all those interested in consumer electronics. Eggtronic, an innovative Italian engineering company founded in Modena in 2012, will have its own booth at the show.
“We worked many years to transform revolutionary ideas into products: CES is the most important stage to showcase our technological innovations. We will display technologies able to change people’s lives” said Igor Spinella, CEO of Eggtronic.
Eggtronic patented an implementation of capacitive coupled converters enabling to build small and efficient isolated AC/DC and DC/DC adapters. Applying the same IP to wireless power transfer, Eggtronic technology is able to overcome all the typical issues of common inductive wireless power existing systems, in particular: low efficiency, emissions, limited positioning freedom and slow data-over-power solutions.
Its partnership with GaN Systems helps facilitate the process. “We’re excited to see the growing number of GaN-powered devices and technologies that will be showcased at CES 2019 from our customers and partners,” said Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems. “Using GaN power transistors as a basis for power systems opens the door for improving and creating new opportunities as the ones Eggtronic will be showcasing.”
Power Conversion: THE WORLD SMALLEST AC/DC POWER ADAPTER
An ultra-compact and efficient AC/DC power adapter for the consumer market, will be available in late 2019 as USB PD 65W adapter in the retail market, and as OEM product later with some of the biggest worldwide laptop manufacturers.
Smaller and lighter than any conventional adapter, it converts energy more efficiently reducing heat loss by half and system costs.
Wireless Technology: THE NEW ERA OF WIRELESS POWER
Wireless capacitive technology conceived by Eggtronic will allow users to wirelessly power a UHD television, with total free positioning, beating any records of power density, efficiency, bandwidth and functionality in the field of wireless power supply.
The same technology will be also able to supply a laptop: a flexible mat, which can be rolled around the transmitter electronics, and a laptop charging upon it. Imagine you could just cover your entire desk with a mat of these, and supply every single electronic device you lay on top.
Finally, a moving object on a rail can be powered by capacitive wireless. This demonstrator shows the capacitive technology used in a specific application, very common in the industrial or automotive worlds: a sliding object which has to be supplied and connected with a fixed basement, without electrical connections. This demo shows a 100W vehicle lamp, supplied with a very limited capacitive coupling surface, showing position freedom over a line and very high power density over surface.
Automotive: A NEW WIRELESS DRIVING EXPERIENCE
The automotive division, partner of leading companies in the automotive industry, will demonstrate a hi-tech Wireless Car, emulating a real car environment. The demonstration integrates Eggtronic in-car wireless charger and ESI, a revolutionary infotainment system offering a unique and customised user experience, by transforming smartphones in the intelligent heart of the car.
Founded in 2012 by Igor Spinella, entrepreneur and inventor, Eggtronic is an innovative company focused on power electronics. Eggtronic engineers carry out an intense research activity in the fields of wireless charging and data transfer as well as small-sized, highly-efficient and eco-friendly power supplies. Eggtronic has more than 50 international patents in the field of power electronics, wireless charging and wireless car infotainment architecture.
