Wireless Power

Multiple Device, Large-Surface-Area Power Made Easy

Large-surface-area wireless power allows for applications such as in-vehicle wireless power or battlefield wireless power to the multitude of portable electronic equipment that the modern-day soldier is required to carry. It is critical to keep these systems charged and powered, especially during long missions.  The ability to provide wireless power without precise alignment requirements enables longer mission times and increased safety.

GaN FETs and ICs make ideal switching devices for use in wireless power, ensuring low operating losses, which lead to higher amplifier efficiency and help keep EMI generation low.
