Semtech’s LinkCharge® Platform Integrated in Shanghai Magway Magnetics’ Commercial 22mm Long Distance Smartphone Wireless Charger

The long distance solution to revolutionize the user experience for smartphone wireless charging

CES at LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2019 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that its LinkCharge® wireless charging platform has been adopted by Shanghai Magway Magnetics’ in its first commercial 22mm long distance smartphone wireless charger.

“By using Semtech’s LinkCharge technology in our new products, we have greatly simplified the installation process of sub-surface charging modules for our customers in the furniture and infrastructure businesses,” said Justin Fang, CEO of Shanghai Magway Magnetics Co. Ltd. “Our solution is now a plug and play solution that can be seamlessly integrated with furniture tops. We envision a future where cables and power banks are obsolete, and our commercial 22mm long distance smartphone wireless charging solutions are available everywhere.” 

The LinkCharge integrated circuit (IC) chipset can wirelessly charge major brand smartphones with a gap of 10 to 22mm. It also supports fast charging modes of major smartphones, which greatly reduces charging time. The solution features patent pending short distance protection, which adjusts the transmit power when the receiver is placed closer to the transmitter. The solution also features smart foreign object detection (FOD), which is a user safety feature, preventing metal objects from heating up when placed between the transmitter and smartphone. These features make the LinkCharge platform an ideal solution for furniture and public infrastructure applications.

“Semtech provides a highly differentiated solution to the smartphone wireless charging market. By enabling longer charging distances, consumers will enjoy the freedom of being able to quickly charge their mobile phones wherever they go,” said Francois Ricodeau, Sr. Product Line Manager for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group.
