Efficient Power Conversion and ASD Technology Ltd. Leverage WiTricity Wireless Charging Reference Design On Display at CES 2017

Wireless charging systems resulting from the WiTricity, ASD, and EPC collaboration will be on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017, January 5th – 8th, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) announces accelerated efforts to build magnetic resonance based wireless charging systems based on WiTricity’s reference designs that feature gallium nitride (GaN)-based solutions with ASD Technology Limited (ASD). This ramp-up in activity is in response to recently rising customer and end-system manufacturer interests in wireless charging products using gallium nitride technology.

WiTricity is a world leader in the use of magnetic resonance, that has emerged as the leading technology for wireless power. Meeting the AirFuel™ Alliance wireless power standard, the WiTricity reference design utilizes EPC’s high speed, thermally efficient, and small-sized eGaN® devices. As a licensee of WiTricity technology, ASD, a design and manufacturing company in Hong Kong, designs and produces innovative products incorporating WiTricity’s technology. This three-way relationship provides a fast, direct route to introducing innovative, high performance wireless charging products and systems.

Wireless charging systems resulting from the WiTricity, ASD, and EPC collaboration will be on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017, January 5th – 8th, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

According to Sanjay Gupta, Vice President of Product Management of WiTricity, “WiTricity has continuously supported business partners and licensees who adopt AirFuel Alliance wireless charging standard to develop innovative wireless charging solutions for customers. We are excited to support ASD and work with EPC as a team in combining leadership, capabilities and expertise to accelerate the adoption of wireless charging technology worldwide.”
