New Toshiba TC7718FTG IC Enables 15W Wireless Power Transmission on Qi Standard

Toshiba releases a new IC for wireless charging for mobile devices.

Toshiba Semiconductor & Storage Products Company today announced the launch of a wireless power transmitter IC (TC7718FTG) with a 15W transmission capability. Sample shipments start today with mass production slated to begin in the spring.

This chip could enable the iPhone 7 to finally offer wireless charging like Samsung offers on the Galaxy flagship phones.

Connected to a micro-controller, the new Toshiba IC realizes a wireless power transmitter system compliant with WPC Qi v1.2, the standard defined by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC).

Toshiba’s CD-0.13 process realizes a small package and high efficiency, making system integration easy while securing a transmitter system with a small footprint.

A 15W wireless transmitter formed with the new IC will recharge devices at a rate equal to or shorter than wired chargers. The IC is suitable for use in wide range of applications including mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, and industrial devices.

Wireless transmitters that use the new IC will be compatible with 5W receiver systems that use Toshiba's 5W receiver IC, "TC7764WBG,” and 10W receiver systems that use the “TC7765WBG” 10W receiver IC, both of which are in mass production. In combination with a 15W wireless receiver control IC “TC7766WBG” compliant with the Qi v1.2 standard, the wireless system can receive up to 15W power.
