Semtech Corp. has announced technology advancements to its LinkCharge wireless charging platform for concurrently charging multiple, low-power devices using a single transmitter. The technology is being used in its next-generation of wireless chargers, LinkCharge LP (low power).
Semtech’s LinkCharge LP technology provides positioning and spatial freedom for the charging of multiple devices on the transmitter. Delivering 1 watt of output power to the charging devices, targeted low power applications include wearables such as hearing aids, activity trackers, smart headphones, smart jewelry and clothing, low power industrial and portable medical equipment, as well as LED fixtures.
“We recognized the need for a wireless charging technology that supports charging multiple devices at once, as consumers and retailers begin to expand their collections of wireless charging-equipped wearables, portable electronics, and other low-power applications,” said Ruwanga Dassanayake, Power Management Product Line Manager for Semtech’s Power and High-Reliability Products Group. “Semtech’s LinkCharge LP technology is an innovative solution that gives our customers the flexibility and convenience to charge multiple devices without multiple power supplies and charging cables.”
