Revolutionizing Charging at Wireless Power Week

0

Global specialist in GaN (gallium nitride) power semiconductors, GaN Systems, has announced that it will deliver presentations and display numerous innovative wireless power transfer solutions enabled by GaN at Wireless Power Week taking place in London on June 17th to 21st, 2019.

GaN power semiconductors are hoping to enable a world without wires for consumer and business devices, spurring the next evolution of convenience, intelligence, and autonomy.

At the conference, GaN Systems’ VP Strategic Marketing Paul Wiener will be giving a talk: ‘Moving to a World Without Wires’, in a joint IEEE MTT-S Wireless Power Transfer Conference (WPTC) and IEEE PELS Workshop on Emerging Technologies: Wireless Power (WoW) session on June 18th, 2019 at 1:45pm. Additionally, GaN Systems’ RF power and wireless power expert Tiefeng Shi will be delivering a poster presentation on ‘High Power WPT System For Through the Wall Applications’.

GaN Systems will be showcasing wireless charging devices and technologies from customers and partners as well as design tools and reference designs. GaN transistors are enabling higher power level applications from 30W up to several kilowatts – much greater than achieved with traditional silicon solutions – and opens the door for charging more than a single cell phone, but several of these devices at the same time as well as laptops, drones, robots, tabletop electronics, industrial power tools, eBikes, and more.

Demonstrations include:

  • Multi-device charging, dual-mode solution from PowerSphyr.
  • Off-the-shelf, 300-watt end-to-end wireless power system for aerial, mobile, marine, and industrial robots from WiBotic.
  • 700W wireless power charging system for scooters from Bumblebee.
  • 150W wireless power solutions designed for industrial and consumer applications from NuCurrent
  • 70W, high efficiency through-wall application enabling power from the inside a home or commercial building to power devices on the outside of the building without drilling holes and routing power cords.

“We’re seeing a growing number of companies using GaN to make their wireless power transfer systems more efficient and to overcome the current technical challenges in the market,” said Paul Wiener, VP of Strategic Marketing for GaN Systems. “Today those looking implement wireless power now have off-the-shelf complete end-to-end solutions readily available from our partners to help them get to market quickly.”
