Companies look to accelerate wireless charging technology adoption
eInfochips, an Arrow electronics company, is teaming up with NuCurrent, a wireless power solutions provider, to customise, integrate and license NuCurrent technologies to customers looking to incorporate wireless power technologies into their products.
“NuCurrent’s wireless charging solutions portfolio offers excellent performance and customer experience. Its Qi-Certified MP-A17 design supports 3X charging volume and 3X separation distance compared to other designs, allowing for differentiated applications in vehicles, furniture, infrastructure and more,” said Aiden Mitchell, vice president and general manager of global supplier and engineering services for Arrow Electronics. “The combined capabilities of eInfoChips and NuCurrent will mean wider options to customers, and speed to market through accelerated design cycles and product certifications.”
eInfochips is also developing reference kits based on NuCurrent’s Qi and Ki smart kitchen and appliance solutions. With these kits, automotive, consumer, industrial and medical device customers will be able to incorporate wireless charging technologies into their products.
Founded in 2009, Nucurrent has generated over 150 patents globally to date, and its solutions are based on inductive and inductive resonant wireless power transfer which offers improved convenience, safety, efficiency, and enhanced user experience.
As part of the agreement, customers will also be able to leverage Arrow Electronics’ supply chain and kitting services to shorten design to manufacturing cycle time.
“eInfochips’ engineering expertise and Arrow Electronics’ supply chain expertise with global presence can help NuCurrent’s innovations reach more companies, while accelerating overall wireless charging technology adoption,” said Tim Tumilty, executive vice president of sales and marketing for NuCurrent.
