ON Semiconductor and PowerSphyr Inc. have come together to form an alliance in order to develop and market one of the industry’s most promising wireless power solutions for the consumer electronic devices and the fast-growing IoT space.
As per the agreement, ON Semiconductor is required to integrate its efficient power management components with PowerSphyr’s wireless power transfer (WPT) technology. It combines near-field and far-field wireless charging so as to create a new class of chipsets targeted at Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
The aim of this alliance is to develop the world’s first universally compatible wireless charging solutions that support interoperability with the major wireless power standards. This will allow device charging without cables or connectors. Inside each device enabled by PowerSphyr, there is going to be a new system.
This system will be based on the new application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) with support through ON Semiconductor’s global sales and technical support teams. Over the long term, PowerSphyr will continue to share future technology with ON Semiconductor to create new opportunities for further integration.
“ON Semiconductor’s chip-making expertise, combined with PowerSphyr’s unique IP, creates the perfect synergy to drive adoption of next-generation wireless charging,” said David Meng, founder, chief marketing and chief technology officer. “The level of compatibility that our solutions offer is unprecedented and eliminates the difficult choices today facing OEM device-makers when selecting one standard over another.”
PowerSphyr Inc. is revolutionizing the way power is being delivered to electronic devices. Through proprietary and patent-pending technologies, PowerSphyr delivers wireless power to mobile phones, wearables, medical devices, and industrial sensors without physical cords, cables or a dock. PowerSphyr is the only solution that seamlessly optimizes near-field and far-field energy transfer.
