CAMARILLO, Calif., March 3, 2016—Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced that its Wireless Charging Evaluation platforms are now available directly through online distributors Digi-Key and Mouser Electronics. The Transmitter and Receiver platforms are available in a variety of power configurations and provide the tools 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, 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.
“We’ve seen a big spike in demand for our industry leading, multi-mode and flexible wireless charging solutions from our customers. The demand has been across a wide spectrum of applications in the wearables, portable consumer electronics, infrastructure and hospitality markets. Making our “plug ‘n play” evaluation kits affordable and easily accessible to customers will help allow them to accelerate their products to market,” said Ruwanga Dassanayake, Product Line Manager for Wireless Charging for Semtech’s Power and High Reliably Product Group.
