Scosche has selected Integrated Device Technology's 15W Qi-certified wireless power transmitter for its MagicMount Charge wireless charger, which targets fast-charging mobile devices.

Expected to hit the market in early 2017, the MagicMount Charge uses device-safe, rare-earth Neodymium magnets to secure wirelessly powered portable devices in place while they receive a charge via the IDT P9242 transmitter, a 15W magnetic induction transmitter compliant to the WPC-1.2.2 specification. The MagicMount Charge product secures the portable device, keeping the transmitter and receiver aligned—even in challenging driving conditions—to ensure optimal wireless power transfer.

Scosche developed the product using IDT’s newly introduced turnkey 15W wireless power reference kit, which delivers efficient energy transfer while reducing system thermal issues.
