Wireless charging extends to industrial applications
Two high-power wireless charging transmitter and receiver evaluation platforms for industrial applications supporting up to 20 watts of power, extend Semtech’s LinkCharge wireless charging offering.
The LinkCharge 20 Series is the only inductive wireless charging system beyond 15W that is currently available, claims the company. It consists of two evaluation modules: a transmitter and receiver (TSDMTX-19V2-EVM and TSDMRX-19V/20W-EVM) that use magnetic, inductive-based wireless charging technology. According to the company, it is the only currently available inductive wireless charging system that supports up to 20W of power output by using a proprietary protocol for communication between the transmitter and the receiver. Industrial equipment manufacturers can use the LinkCharge 20 to test wireless power in next-generation applications such as power tools, appliances, medical instruments and automation systems.
