JJPlus and EPC partner on GaN-based wireless charging designs

To address the Taiwan wireless power standards organization's announcement of adopting AirFuel Alliance's resonant wireless charging standard, Taiwan-based JJPlus Corp (which designs and manufactures industrial-grade and high-power WIFI solutions) and 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 – are collaborating to design and implement GaN-based wireless power solutions. In addition to the Taiwan initiative, the designs will have application for wireless charging systems worldwide.

The AirFuel Alliance, a global consortium focused on enabling and accelerating the adoption of wireless power technology, recently signed a Letter of Intent with the Taiwan Association of Information and Communication Standards (TAICS) to establish a wireless charging ecosystem in Taiwan through the introduction of AirFuel's resonant technology standard.

"Our collaboration is in direct support of TAICS/AirFuel's initiative in their launch of public wireless charging spots at coffee shops, airports or hotels," says JJPlus' general manager Jeff Shu. "We look forward to employing EPC's leading gallium nitride technology and working with their expert teams, who work closely with Witricity, to take a leadership position in this fast-growing market," he adds.

"Our eGaN technology has been supporting the wireless charging market development with our business partners and customers worldwide for over three years," notes EPC's CEO & co-founder Alex Lidow. "JJPlus is an exceptional team with technical know-how, dedication and expertise whose customer design solutions serve as market-leading solutions," he comments. "With the introduction of AirFuel's resonant technology in Taiwan's wireless charging ecosystem, the adoption of wireless charging applications will be accelerated, further fueling the overall expansion of the GaN power market."
