JJPlus Corporation and Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) announce their design collaboration for innovative wireless charging designs.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif — October 25, 2016 — In an effort to address the recently announced Taiwan wireless power standards organization’s announcement of adopting AirFuel™ Alliance’s resonant wireless charging standard, JJPlus Corporation and Efficient Power Conversion Corporation announce their collaboration to design GaN-based wireless power solutions. In addition to the Taiwan initiative, these designs will have application for wireless charging systems worldwide.
The AirFuel™ Alliance, a global consortium of industry leaders focused on enabling and accelerating the adoption of wireless power technology, recently signed a Letter of Intent with the Taiwan Association of Information and Communication Standards (TAICS), to establish a wireless charging ecosystem in Taiwan through the introduction of AirFuel's resonant technology standard.
Jeff Shu, General Manager of JJPlus Corporation said, “We are excited to partner with EPC in the design and implementation of innovative wireless power solutions. Our collaboration is in direct support of TAICS/AirFuel’s initiative in their launch of public wireless charging spots at coffee shops, airports or hotels. We look forward to employing EPC’s leading gallium nitride technology and working with their expert teams, who work closely with Witricity, to take a leadership position in this fast-growing market.”
Alex Lidow, EPC CEO and Co-founder, noted, “Our eGaN technology has been supporting the wireless charging market development with our business partners and customers worldwide for over three years. JJPlus is an exceptional team with technical knowhow, dedication, and expertise whose customer design solutions serve as market-leading solutions. With the introduction of AirFuel’s resonant technology in Taiwan’s wireless charging ecosystem, the adoption of wireless charging applications will be accelerated, further fueling the overall expansion of the GaN power market.”
