IDT’s Wireless Power Transmitter Is Fully Certified for Use in Qi-compatible Charging Stations
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 24, 2012 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that its single-chip wireless power transmitter solution has received full “Qi” certification by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). This certification ensures interoperability with any other device meeting the WPC Qi standard, providing charging station manufacturers the confidence to design with IDT’s solution for applications requiring Qi compliance.
The IDTP9030 is the world’s most highly integrated single-chip wireless power transmitter available, enabling customers to develop Qi-compliant charging stations that are compact and cost-efficient. The device integrates dozens of discrete components into a simplified, cost-effective, and highly efficient solution. The IDTP9030 reduces application footprint by 80 percent and solution BOM by 50 percent compared to other solutions. Charging stations that take advantage of the IDTP9030 may be deployed virtually anywhere, including homes, offices, libraries, stores, public waiting areas, automobiles, airports, and airplane seats.
“We are delighted to have this exceptional product receive the coveted Qi certification from the WPC,” said Arman Naghavi, vice president and general manager of the Analog and Power Division at IDT. “IDT is the first to offer a true single-chip wireless power transmitter IC solution to address a projected $3.3B wireless power market. Our customers can now take advantage of this innovative product to design Qi-compliant charging stations with full confidence of interoperability with other Qi products.”
Complementing IDT’s transmitter is the IDTP9020 high-efficiency single-chip wireless power receiver. Both transmitter and receiver are capable of “multi-mode” operation, supporting both the Qi standard as well as proprietary formats for added features, improved safety, and increased power output capability. Built-in protocol detection enables dynamic switching between Qi and proprietary modes, creating seamless transitions and a trouble-free user experience.
