“Wireless PowerShare” allows mobile wireless charging among devices

March 03, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
This technology can serve as both receiver and transmitter, supporting all three major wireless power standards; IDT’s “Wireless PowerShare” technology will permit users wirelessly charge one mobile device from another device.

The semiconductor part of the offering is a multi-mode, multi-function chip—receiver and transmitter—that supports all major wireless power standards for magnetic resonance and magnetic induction charging. Part of IDT’s P9700 series of ICs, the device enables power transfer between products compliant with the three leading standards: the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) standard for magnetic resonance and the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) standards for magnetic induction. The chip delivers 5W to 10W of output power and offers a proprietary mode that provides, the company says, greater flexibility to OEMs.
