IDT & Intel Partner to Develop Wireless Charging Technology

Integrated Device Technolog (IDT) today announced that Intel has selected IDT to develop an integrated transmitter and receiver chipset for Intel’s wireless charging technology based on resonance technology. Wireless charging ICs by IDT will provide industry-leading size and cost reduction, while simplifying product development and integration. Intel, along with IDT, aims to deliver validated reference designs that are targeted for deployment in Ultrabooks, all-in-one (AiO) PCs, smartphones, and standalone chargers. This is very cool technology that we can't wait for! IDT is targeting samples of a resonance receiver IC by the end of the year, and the transmitter IC is expected to sample in the first half of 2013.
