ROHM's BD57020MWV wireless power transmitter IC has received certification from WPC (Wireless Power Consortium). WPC's Qi standard for medium power has attracted attention as a next-generation standard for inductive power transmission that will enable wireless charging of tablet PCs while allowing smartphones and other mobile devices to be charged up to 3x faster than the existing low power standard (5W). In addition, a Foreign Object Detection (FOD) function is included to provide greater safety by detecting foreign metallic objects before power transfer to protect against possible damage due to overheating.
