Semtech Releases Next-Generation LinkCharge® 20 Series Wireless Charging Platform
The new LinkCharge 20 Series chipset, when in range and powered sufficiently, is able to announce its presence to the transmitter to begin a transaction. The transmitter also provides a small amount of power to the newly-discovered receiver, so that the receiver can tell the transmitter what the power requirements are for the receiver. This flexible architecture can be customized in order to wirelessly charge or continuously power devices through a physical layer, such as powering a surveillance camera through a window pane, or charging a phone through furniture. In addition, the firmware of the new wireless charging controller can be updated on transmitter modules that are already deployed in the field.
“Semtech continuously works on having the latest wireless charging platform available and the next-generation LinkCharge 20 Series supports the most recent smartphones fast charging protocols,” said Francois Ricodeau, Power and High-Reliability Product Line Manager for Semtech’s Wireless and
LinkCharge 20 Series is immediately available through Semtech and DigiKey. The order code is TSDMTX-19V3-EVM. The datasheet is available on www.semtech.com.
