NXP Announces First Qi 1.3 Certified Automotive Wireless Charging Reference Design

New NXP automotive wireless charging reference design is the first to be certified by the Wireless Power Consortium for the new Qi 1.3 standard

What’s new: NXP® Semiconductors today announced a new automotive wireless charging reference design, the first to be certified by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), the global standard development body for wireless power, for its new Qi 1.3 standard. The reference design consists of a Qi-certified board with an NXP wireless charging MWCT family MCUs, as well as optional NFC, secure element and CAN/LIN transceiver. The solution also features a software package that includes NXP’s wireless charging Qi 1.3 software library and a complete suite of customizable software solutions that help make it easier for developers to bring a Qi-certified wireless charger to market.

Why it matters: The WPC’s Qi standard is used by most major smartphone manufacturers, including Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi and many others. The new Qi 1.3 standard includes new secure authentication features that verify if a smartphone or other wireless power device is Qi Certified and can reduce the wireless power transfer to lower levels if an uncertified device is detected to ensure user safety and protect equipment from damage. This requires the addition of secure storage to the wireless power transmitter, addressed by NXP’s automotive-grade products.

“By combining NXP’s deep security credentials with our automotive expertise and our leadership in high-performance in-vehicle wireless charging, NXP is once again first to market with a complete, production-ready solution for next generation automotive Qi products, ,” said Denis Cabrol, Executive Director and General Manager, IoT and Security Solutions, NXP. “NXP partners can use the flexible hardware platform and customizable software libraries to quickly and reliably create wireless charging solutions that meet their unique needs.”

More details: The Automotive 15W Wireless Charging Transmitter reference design includes NXP’s complete wireless charging software library, which customers can customize based on the type of wireless charging application targeted, including scaling solutions from 5 to 15 watts and above with proprietary protocols support readiness, single or multi-coil chargers, and across vehicles fleets.

PrimeShield Techtorial Series: Part 2 - Design Variation Analysis and Variation Robustness

Sponsored by Synopsys

To address increasing variations at advance nodes, design teams add guardband margins and signoff at higher sigma to manage risk, resulting in over-designing, thus paying higher PPA cost. Synopsys’ PrimeShield™ solutions’ innovative ML-driven statistical engine enables full statistical design variation analysis, lowers the overall pessimism, and in some cases catches potential risks of design optimism. In Part 2 of the PrimeShield Techtorial series, Synoposys covers Design Variation Analysis and Variation Robustness, giving a brief overview of each concept and discussing the value each of these brings in improving your power and performance.

How to Fast-Charge Your Supercapacitor

Sponsored by Analog Devices

Supercapacitors (or ultracapacitors) are suited for short charge and discharge cycles. They require high currents for fast charge as well as a high voltage with a high number in series as shown in two usage cases: an automatic pallet shuttle and a fail-safe backup system. In these and many other cases, the fast charge is provided by a flexible, high-efficiency, high-voltage, and high-current charger based on a synchronous, step-down, supercapacitor charger controller.
