eInfochips supports customers to integrate NuCurrent’s wireless charging technology
To accelerate the adoption of wireless charging, eInfochips, an Arrow Electronics company, has teamed with NuCurrent, to customise, integrate and license NuCurrent wireless charging technologies to customers.
Summarising the opportunities the technology offers, Aiden Mitchell, vice president and general manager of global supplier and engineering services for Arrow Electronics, said: “NuCurrent’s wireless charging solutions portfolio offers excellent performance and customer experience. Its Qi-certified MP-A17 design supports three times the charging volume and three times the separation distance compared to other designs, allowing for differentiated applications in vehicles, furniture, infrastructure and more,” said Aiden Mitchell, vice president and general manager of global supplier and engineering services for Arrow Electronics.
He hoped that the combined capabilities of the two companies will result in a wider choice of options for customers, as well as contribute to accelerated design cycles and product certifications.
eInfochips is also developing reference kits based on NuCurrent’s Qi and Ki smart kitchen and appliance solutions. With these kits, automotive, consumer, industrial and medical device customers can incorporate wireless charging technologies into products. Customers will also be able to leverage Arrow Electronics’ supply chain and kitting services to shorten design to manufacturing cycle time, added the company.
