EPC presenting user-friendly GaN-based multi-mode wireless charging solution at Wireless Power Summit

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 – says that, on 10 November at the Wireless Power Summit 2016 in Seattle, WA, USA, its vice president of applications engineering Dr Michael de Rooij is presenting a multi-mode wireless power charging solution that works with either of the two wireless charging standards – Qi or Airfuel.

"The 8th annual Wireless Power Summit will focus on business strategies and technology developments in this rapidly changing field, with a focus on how wireless power has evolved to higher-power applications including laptops, tools and vehicles," say the conference organizers. Also giving presentations are leaders from major companies engaged in the development of wireless power products, such as Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Bosch and Witricity.

The presentation by de Rooij, 'Bridging the Differences Between the Wireless Power Standards to Improve the User Experience' will focus on a multi-mode solution that provides a single system that accommodates both leading wireless power standards. This demonstrates the use of eGaN technology to aid ease of use regardless of the standard used in the receiving device. This multi-mode solution shifts the planning of wireless power to more pragmatic issues, such as how to reduce cost, improve efficiency and increase power, says EPC.

The presentation is based on the GaN applications R&D for wireless power that de Rooij has detailed in his Wireless Power Handbook, which is available via Amazon.com or Digi-Key Electronics.
