jjPLUS and EPC, both members of the AirFuel Alliance, to show how large area wireless power surfaces can be designed following the most advanced AirFuel™ Resonant standard. Go for a wirelessly powered home and office!
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — June 2018 — jjPLUS Corporation, a design manufacturer of advanced wireless communication and wireless power embedded solution company, will demonstrate the next-generation magnetic resonance wireless power transfer (WPT) technology at InnoVEX 2018 in Taipei. Joining jjPLUS will be its technology partner − Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC). The demonstration units will be located in TWTC Hall 3, booth no. G0309a on June 6 – 8. Both jjPLUS and EPC participated in the AirFuel working committees and in the AirFuel Developers Forum in March 2018.
Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) – From Magnetic Inductive to Magnetic Resonance
From electric toothbrushes to the latest smartphones, magnetic inductive wireless charging has created significant awareness, ascertaining that wireless power is ready to widely adopted and change the way we live. Magnetic resonant technology with its ability to transmit power wirelessly over large surface areas and permit devices to placed anywhere on the surface while powering (or charging) multiple devices at the same time, takes wireless power to another level.
“Delivering more power, at a longer distance, as well as over a larger surface area for powering multiple electronic devices are our target wireless power transfer systems,” said Jeff Shu, CEO of jjPLUS Corporation. “Clearly, magnetic resonant technology is the key for ubiquitous implementation of wireless charging by enabling large surface area transmission, spatial freedom for placement of receiving devices, and the ability to power multiple devices simultaneously.”
“Wireless power has the potential to change the way we live, work and play, but first-generation technology has major limitations. That’s why AirFuel members like jjPLUS and EPC are working with next-generation resonant technology,” said Sanjay Gupta, President, AirFuel Alliance. “Resonant technology delivers a superior consumer experience which is the key to driving wider consumer and business adoption of wireless power worldwide. We’re excited about the new solutions from jjPLUS and EPC, the role our Developer Program had in shorten their time to market, and the innovation that’s yet to come.”
“End users want convenience and freedom from power cords. With the Airfuel method of magnetic resonant wireless power and the capability of GaN technology to enable low cost and highly efficient amplifiers for wireless power, we can finally eliminate power cords.,” said Alex Lidow, CEO and co-founder of Efficient Power Conversion Corporation.
jjPLUS /EPC CPT030A Wide Surface-Area Wireless Power Transmitter
Based on magnetic resonance technology, the jjPLUS CPT030A wireless power transmitter is the PTU (Power Transmitting Unit) part of a Wireless Power Transfer system with the capability to support the use of one transmitter for powering multiple-receiver configurations. CPT030A's special surface-area antenna design can simultaneously support highly-resonant pairing of up to 8 PRUs (Power Receiving Unit) with different power receiving levels. Operating at the AirFuel Alliance standard 6.78 MHz frequency, the CPT030A design relies upon EPC's eGaN® FETs.

EPC is the leader in enhancement mode gallium nitride based power management devices. EPC was the first to introduce enhancement-mode gallium-nitride-on-silicon (eGaN) FETs and integrated circuits as power MOSFET replacements in applications such as DC-DC converters, wireless power transfer, envelope tracking, RF transmission, power inverters, remote imaging and sensing technology (LiDAR), and Class-D audio amplifiers with device performance many times greater than the best silicon power MOSFETs. EPC also has a growing portfolio of eGaN-based integrated circuits that provide even greater space, energy, and cost efficiency.
