Element14 works with TI and Wurth for wireless power
Element14, which is part of electronics distributor Premier Farnell, has launched a wireless power microsite in partnership with Texas Instruments, Würth Electronics and Cadsoft EAGLE PCB software.
The website will offer advice on Qi-compliant contact-less charging. This meets Wireless Power Consortium specifications, and can be used in devices powered by a USB or 5V/19V DC adapters.
The website is also hosting a free webinar on September 20, 2012 at 3pm GMT (9am CDT) entitled, “Charging Innovation – Cut the Cord’, and presented by representatives from TI, Würth and Cadsoft.
The webinar will cover Qi standards and TI’s bqTESLA solutions, an overview of wireless power reference designs and corresponding charging-coils from Würth, and a demo of how to work with libraries in CadSoft EAGLE software. A live Q&A will follow.
This microsite also hosts a product RoadTest that will provide selected design engineers with transmitter manager and receiver solutions from TI and Würth plus EAGLE V6 software, at no cost.
