Wireless Charging Evaluation platforms now available online
07 March 2016
Semtech announced that its Wireless Charging Evaluation platforms are now available directly through online distributors Digi-Key and Mouser Electronics.
Semtech Wireless Charging platforms allow design engineers to develop and test wireless charging solutions for a range of low, medium and high power applications. The Transmitter and Receiver platforms are available in a variety of power configurations and provide the tools that design engineers need to quickly prototype and demonstrate their wireless charging applications.
The platforms offer users a complete kit that includes a PC board with a controller and other components such as FET Driver, buck regulator, and rectifier (depending on the kit), and firmware that is easily upgradeable by the user.
The kits make it easy for engineers to develop and test wireless charging applications for low powered mobile and wearable devices, medium-powered electronics equipment such as laptops, monitors and car charging systems, and high powered devices such as power tools. The kits can also be used to develop and test wireless charging infrastructure applications such as furniture and countertop embedded wireless charging, which is becoming widespread in the hospitality industry and in places such as coffee shops, restaurants, hotels, office buildings and airports.
Ruwanga Dassanayake, Product Line Manager for Wireless Charging for Semtech’s Power and High Reliably Product Group, said there has been a big spike in demand for multi-mode and flexible wireless charging solutions. The demand has been across a wide spectrum of applications in the wearables, portable consumer electronics, infrastructure, and hospitality markets. Making the “plug ‘n play” evaluation kits affordable and easily accessible to customers will help allow them to accelerate their products to market.
