DALLAS (PRWEB) October 31, 2018

Spark Connected, a leading technology developer of advanced and innovative wireless power system solutions, today announced its new automotive in-cabin wireless charging solution for smartphones.

The solution named The Beast, is a 15 Watt Qi certified three-coil three-coil transmitter and is also certified for CISPR-25 Class 4 to meet strict automotive in-cabin emissions requirements for electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).

Much can be improved with the way consumers charge their phones in their vehicles today – connectors do not always fit, cables get tangled and most of all connecting cables to devices while driving is certainly not very safe.

“The next frontier for wireless charging phones will be in the automotive segment with higher adoption rates in vehicles for ease of use and a better charging experience”, said Ruwanga Dassanayake, Chief Operating Officer at Spark Connected. “Spark Connected’s solution has gone through a robust certification process. This allows our automotive customers to adopt our technology with confidence and ease, minimizing expensive engineering effort while accelerating their products to market. The combination of CISPR-25 Class 4 and Qi certifications sets this solution apart and ahead of others in the industry”.

FEATURE SUMMARY

  • WPC Qi v1.2.4 15 Watt EPP certified
  • CISPR 25 Class 4 certified
  • Supports all Qi certified smartphones
  • AEC-Q100 qualified
  • Supports future products and standards with a firmware upgrade
  • Fixed frequency architecture to meet strict automotive requirements
  • Full power charging with a 6 – 19V input supply, supporting stop/start
  • Supports multi-coil configurations (standard and custom)
  • Single Infineon AURIX™ Wireless Power Controller supports wireless charging, CAN and NFC interface functions and security features

In addition to Automotive, The Beast may be ideal for applications such as in-cabin smart phone charging for commercial airlines, trucks, trains, and cruise liners.
