IDT Introduces Wireless PowerShare Technology, Enabling Mobile Devices to Wirelessly Charge One Another
The New Solution Can Serve as Both Receiver and Transmitter, Supporting All 3 Major Wireless Power Standards
BARCELONA, Spain, March 2, 2015— Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI) today introduced its “Wireless PowerShare™” technology, a cutting-edge innovation that will enable consumers to wirelessly charge a mobile device from another device. The semiconductor is a multi-mode, multi-function chip—receiver and transmitter—that supports all major wireless power standards for magnetic resonance and magnetic induction charging. With IDT’s Wireless PowerShare technology, consumers will be able to charge their wearable devices by simply setting them atop or near an enabled smart phone.
The new wireless power solution, a member of IDT’s P9700 series of semiconductors, enables a seamless transition between the three leading standards: the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) standard for magnetic resonance and the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) standards for magnetic induction. The chip delivers 5 W to 10 W of output power and offers a proprietary mode that provides greater flexibility to OEMs.
“Consumers have been asking why, with all the remarkable advances in electronics, we remain tethered by power cords,” said Arman Naghavi, IDT’s vice president of Analog Power Technology. “Our Wireless PowerShare technology is a big leap in the right direction, allowing devices to charge one another, free from the tangle of wires.”
