IDT Wireless Power Technology Incorporated On LG's Flagship G3 Smartphone
SAN JOSE, CALIF.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ:IDTI) announced today that an IDT wireless power receiver was incorporated on LG’s latest flagship G3 smartphone. The two companies worked together closely to integrate the IDTP9025A chip, which delivers a compact size and simplified application circuit.
The LG G3 smartphone is winning rave reviews globally for its state-of-the-art feature set in a compact form.
“To maintain a competitive edge, today’s technology leaders must squeeze more functionality into smaller and smaller form factors while keeping costs in check,” said Arman Naghavi, IDT’s vice president and general manager, Analog and Power Division. “Component size, integration, and quality are essential, and leading innovators are finding that IDT’s wireless power capabilities can help them hit their targets and win in the marketplace.”
“Enabling wireless charging by integrating the function into a device is key for long-term mass adoption,” said Ryan Sanderson, principal analyst for wireless power at IHS Technology. Sanderson added, “IHS predicts that in 2018, 600 million mobile phones will ship that will be enabled to charge wirelessly. Almost all of these are forecast to be enabled straight out of the box via integrated wireless power receivers.”
Part of IDT’s industry-leading wireless power portfolio, the IDTP9025A is a fully integrated, single-chip wireless power receiver supporting the Wireless Power Consortium’s 1.1 standard. It utilizes a high-efficiency low-dropout regulator (LDO)-based architecture to minimize component count. In addition, its optimized control logic minimizes power losses to ensure efficient power delivery to the load. The space- and cost-optimized wireless power receivers are ideal for wireless handsets, cell phone sleeves, and tablets.
