PowerbyProxi Announces Availability of Wireless Power Evaluation Kits for Consumer Electronic Devices
Evaluation kit enables Resonant Mode charging and Qi compliance
PLEASANTON, Calif., August 12, 2014 – PowerbyProxi, developer of the world’s most advanced and safest wireless power solutions, today announced the release of Proxi-2D EVK-1, an evaluation kit for wireless charging of consumer electronic devices. The evaluation kit enables customers to test the capabilities of PowerbyProxi’s resonant technology features such as full spatial freedom, 7.5W power transfer per receiver (the highest power delivery available on the market) and multi-device charging up to 15W.
PowerbyProxi recently demonstrated this system at Computex in June, showing significant improvements over the 3.5 to 5W systems currently available. “The Proxi-2D EVK-1 is the next step towards getting advanced resonant wireless charging technology in the hands of consumers,” said Greg Cross, CEO, PowerbyProxi. “Allowing customers to experience the safety, efficiency and speed firsthand, furthers our goal to enable innovation in the market.”
High speed resonant wireless charging of multiple devices, and backwards compatibility with the Wireless Power Consortium’s (WPC) Qi standard, make this an attractive option for OEMs looking to build upon the 50 million Qi devices currently in use through the 500 products on the market today.
Proxi-2D EVK-1 – specifications
PowerbyProxi’s newest evaluation kit includes a transmitter and two receiver modules to test charging of multiple devices at 7.5W per receiver. The system displays resonant mode charging across the entire charging surface for both Qi v1.1 and resonant receivers. The Proxi-2D EVK-1 kit also highlights a critical next step towards the advancement of the Qi specification by delivering a resonant solution capable of Qi v1.1 compliance.
