IDT to work with Intel on integrated wireless charging chipset
IDT is to collaborate with Intel on the development of an integrated transmitter and receiver chipset to support Intel's resonant technology wireless charging system. IDT says its wireless charging ics will provide size and cost reductions, while simplifying product development and integration.
Intel aims to deliver validated reference designs targeted at Ultrabooks, smartphones and standalone chargers and IDT is looking to deliver resonance receiver ic samples by the end of 2012, with the transmitter ic expected to sample early in 2013.
Arman Naghavi, pictured, general manager of IDT's Analog and Power Division, said: "IDT is excited to collaborate with Intel and looks forward to playing a key role in the proliferation of wireless power technology, resulting in benefits for IDT customers and shareholders."
According to Intel, its customers are 'asking for a fully mobile wireless charging experience'. Gary Huang, Intel's director of PC Growth and Innovation, noted: "We think the ability to have a wire free charging experience with a broad ecosystem of devices like keyboards, mice, storage devices, cameras and smartphones will be realised in the near future. We are delighted to work with IDT to accelerate the progress toward that vision."
