Integrated Device Technology and Samsung have teamed to deliver wireless charging for the Galaxy S7, Samsung’s newest, feature-rich smartphone. The IDT technology includes all of the hardware and software needed to enable mobile devices to be charged without a wired connection. Along with the Galaxy S7, IDT previously announced that it had joined with Samsung to provide wireless charging for the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 smartphones, as well as the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch charging pad.
The IDT wireless charging receiver used in the Galaxy S7 supports Samsung’s fast-charge mode, which enables users to charge up to 1.4 times faster than normal- charge mode, reducing full charging time by about 50 minutes. The solution is also compatible with Qi standard wireless charging pads. The chip’s highly integrated design offers high efficiency, and its flexible core architecture optimizes performance and efficiency.
IDT has introduced wireless power kits that enable electronics companies of any size to easily integrate wireless charging capabilities into their product design.
