NuVolta’s Magnetic Resonance RX IC Enables High Efficiency 20W Wireless Charging at 6.78MHz

Milpitas, California.  On September 19, 2016, NuVolta Technologies Inc announces that it has developed industry’s first 20W receiver IC based on its high efficiency Controlled Resonance wireless power architecture.  The NU2500 power management IC can cover wireless power applications from 0.5W to 20W.  In combination with the company’s transmitter IC NU1000, NuVolta provides complete fast wireless charging solutions for smart watches, smart phones, tablets and notebook computers at very high efficiency.  For example, a typical 6.78MHz system with NU2500 can reach over 85% efficiency at 12V,15W output with simple and thin receiver coil, significantly better than any existing wireless power solutions.  NuVolta’s magnetic resonance solutions are also compatible with metal cases and metal back covers, giving system developers more freedom to enrich end customers’ charging experience.

NU2500 is a power management IC integrating all key functional blocks to implement proprietary controlled magnetic resonance architecture in a power receiver, including Power MOSFETs, gate drivers, current sensing, control circuit, and I2C interface. It is offered in 5mmx5mm QFN or 3.4mmx3.6mm BGA packages, and can support an input voltage between 4.5V to 22V.   This IC can be used for a wide range of applications, ranging from wearable devices with a fraction of a Watt to smart phones and laptop computers with tens of Watts.

“Integrated various advanced high-frequency power management technologies in a small package, NU2500 offers more power than any receiver IC in wireless power industry.  It also reaches a system efficiency unseen in a practical design in mobile devices.” explained Dr. Hengchun Mao, CTO and a founder of the Silicon Valley startup.  “With simple TX and RX coils from 6.78MHz as well as simple application circuit enabled by our novel controlled resonance architecture, our wireless charging solutions realize easy and flexible user charging experience promised by magnetic resonance technology for years, at a system efficiency and cost far better than other technologies.  With NU2500 and NU1000, NuVolta Technologies team has pushed the envelope of wireless power technology to a new level.”

“Many customers have wanted flexible and fast wireless charging features on their devices for a long time, but it was simply impractical technically in the past.” said Michael Wang, CEO and a founder of the company.  “Our designs have removed the technical barriers hindering the wide adoption of wireless chargers for consumer devices, and give customers more choices in charging experiences.  We’re working with our partners and customers to bring wireless charging to many products in a short time.”
