electronica – medium power design kit for wireless charging

At electronica, ROHM Semiconductor presented its Qi standard compatible plug and play design kit for medium range wireless charging applications. The 15W kit was developed with Würth Elektronik and based on the transmitter type MP-A7.

According to the company, the kit is expected to not only facilitate the introduction of wireless charging in new applications requiring higher power, but also accelerate adoption in applications that can benefit from wireless charging.

The power kit consists of the company’s latest transmitter and receiver modules, an LED load module and various power adapters. The device uses a litz wire coil to improve performance.

Applications include charging stations for smartphones and tablets, portable devices in the medical and industrial sector, or devices with a high number of charging cycles that make high mechanical demands of plug-in connectors.
