MediaTek Multi-Mode Wireless Charging Chipset Enters Mass Production
March 02, 2015
-- Industry's first multi-mode charging chipset to be made available for consumer use MediaTek, today announced that its MT3188, the industry-first multi-mode wireless charging integrated circuit (IC), is now commercially available to customers. The reference design, which includes the power electronics, supervisory circuit, and resonator has already passed three certifications including the A4WP, WPC and PMA standards groups. The mass production of this chipset makes MediaTek the first semiconductor company in the world to make multi-mode wireless charging chipsets available in devices for billions of consumers worldwide. MT3188 is compatible with the A4WP resonant wireless charging standard as well as the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) and Power Matters Alliance (PMA) inductive wireless charging standards with no increase in cost over single mode resonant solutions. By supporting multi-mode wireless charging, the MT3188 offers handset manufacturers and other device makers the ability to seamlessly charge their products from any of the main stream chargers in the market, today.
