Semtech platform integrated in commercial 22mm long distance smartphone wireless charger

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, has announced that its LinkCharge® wireless charging platform has been adopted by Shanghai Magway Magnetic in its first commercial 22mm long distance smartphone wireless charger, the company said.

The LinkCharge integrated circuit (IC) chipset can wirelessly charge major brand smartphones with a gap of 10 to 22mm. It also supports fast charging modes of major smartphones, which greatly reduces charging time.

The solution features patent pending short distance protection, which adjusts the transmit power when the receiver is placed closer to the transmitter. The solution also features smart foreign object detection (FOD), which is a user safety feature, preventing metal objects from heating up when placed between the transmitter and smartphone.

Shanghai Magway Magnetic Co., Ltd. was set up in 2003. With advanced testing and inspecting equipment, Magway produces and sells more than 10 kinds of materials and 1,000 specification of magnetic ferrite core. The company specializes in technology and knowledge to improve wireless charging. Magway´s vision is to build high performance product into the world.
