Integrated Device Technology, Inc. ( IDT ®) (NASDAQ:IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that its wireless power solutions have been selected by Primax Electronics Ltd., a leading global supplier of consumer and business electronics, for its wireless charging accessories. IDT will support Primax in the development of its innovative products with IDT’s award-winning inductive transmitter and receiver chipset. IDT’s IDTP9030 and IDTP9020 are a high-efficiency, full-featured inductive wireless power transmitter and receiver chipset. The IDTP9030 transmitter comprises the industry’s most integrated solution, saving up to 80 percent more board area compared to competitive offerings. Its small application footprint and Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) Qi certification make it ideal for use in next-generation magnetic induction-based charging mats and accessories. When coupled with the IDTP9020 receiver solution, it enables a proprietary high-power mode for up to 7 watts of wireless energy transfer to support higher-power devices and improve charging times. “We are pleased that Primax has selected IDT as its wireless power partner,” said Arman Naghavi, vice president and general manager of the Analog and Power Division at IDT. “Our successful magnetic inductance-based solutions provide Primax with a solid platform on which to develop its advanced charging solutions.
