Texas Instruments to speed wireless power adoption with multi-mode power circuits

TI expands receiver and transmitter products based on WPC standard; plans to develop circuits that support Power Matters Alliance

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — Expanding its effort to bring wireless power capabilities to the market, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) today announced plans to develop multi-mode wireless power integrated circuits (ICs) for smartphones and other portable electronics.

TI will continue to develop new bqTESLA™ wireless power receiver and transmitter integrated circuits that comply with existing and future versions of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) Qi standard. In addition, TI announced today it will create products that support both Qi and the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) wireless charging specification. The first multi-mode solutions are expected later this year.

"We are shipping wireless power circuits to most major handset makers. And those companies continue to develop phones that support WPC's Qi, which is currently the most mature and accessible design standard," said Sami Kiriaki, senior vice president of TI Power Management. "With A4WP and PMA entering the wireless power space, we naturally expect a need for multi-protocol solutions, and are prepared to address this need."

TI also recently announced it will develop products that support the Alliance for Wireless Power ( A4WP) magnetic resonance specification. A4WP is a group of electronics companies, including Samsung, Qualcomm and others, focused on advancing spatial freedom in wireless power.

TI is making wireless power a reality

Wireless power is an emerging technology that creates a better charging experience for consumers, just as Wi-Fi replaced the need to use an Ethernet cable for Internet connectivity. TI's advanced receiver and transmitter integrated circuits include the recently announced bq51050B single-chip wireless power receiver with integrated charger and the bq500410A 3-coil transmitter with spatial freedom. As the leading provider of power management ICs, including battery management and power supply technology, TI relies on its power design expertise to drive innovations in wireless charging.
