Wireless power design kit

November 08, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Promising faster integration of wireless power supply with up to 15W rating, Würth Elektronik eiSos (Waldenburg, Germany) has configured a Qi Standard compatible wireless power design kit for the medium power range. The “WPC 15W kit” has been jointly developed with the Japanese IC supplier Rohm Semiconductor.

The kit offers a fast plug & play solution for developers working on products needing a wireless power supply. The kit contains transmitter module, receiver module, LED load module, quick start guide, and power supply unit with an EU, US, and UK adapter.

Application scenarios for wireless power in the medium power range 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. The Würth Elektronik eiSos and ROHM Semiconductor “WPC 15W kit” meets the Qi Standard 1.2 with an extended power profile. It is based on the MP-A7 transmitter type which achieves excellent performance values thanks to the high quality of the components used. The kit is an efficient all-round solution containing transmitter and receiver chip sets.

The WPC 15W kit is now directly available from the Würth Elektronik website: www.we-online.de/web/en/electronic_components/produkte_pb/demoboards/wireless_power/wireless_power_3.php for €149.00.
