EPC and ASD leveraging WiTricity wireless charging reference design on display at CES

Efficient Power Conversion Corp (EPC) of El Segundo, CA, USA – which makes enhancement-mode gallium nitride on silicon (eGaN) power field-effect transistors (FETs) for power management applications – has announced accelerated efforts to build magnetic-resonance-based wireless charging systems based on WiTricity Corp's reference designs that feature GaN-based solutions from ASD Technology Ltd (a design and manufacturing company in Hong Kong). EPC says that this ramp-up in activity is in response to growing interest from both customers and end-system manufacturers in wireless charging products using GaN technology.

WiTricity provides technology to enable wireless power transfer over distance using magnetic resonance, which has emerged as the leading technology for wireless power, says EPC. Meeting the AirFuel Alliance wireless power standard, the WiTricity reference design uses EPC's high-speed, thermally efficient and small-sized eGaN devices. As a licensee of WiTricity technology, ASD designs and produces products incorporating WiTricity's technology. The three-way relationship is said to provide a fast, direct route to introducing high-performance wireless charging products and systems.

"WiTricity has continuously supported business partners and licensees who adopt the AirFuel Alliance wireless charging standard to develop innovative wireless charging solutions," says WiTricity's VP of product management Sanjay Gupta.

Wireless charging systems resulting from the WiTricity, ASD and EPC collaboration will be on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 in Las Vegas, NV, USA (5–8 January).
