06 Jan 2017
SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 6, 2017— Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) (NASDAQ: IDTI) today announced that Scosche, an award-winning innovator of consumer technology and car audio products and accessories, selected IDT’s 15W Qi-certified wireless power transmitter for its new MagicMount™ Charge Wireless Charging Magnetic Mount for fast-charging mobile devices. The sleek aftermarket mount/charger, built around the IDT® P9242 wireless power transmitter, will be shown at CES this week at IDT’s booth, Sands Halls A-D 40736, as well as Scosche’s booth North Hall #7900.
“The MagicMount Charge melds two superior technologies—Scosche’s innovative magnetic mount product design (it’s the #1 mount brand in the U.S.) and the latest in Qi wireless power technology and performance,” said Kas Alves, executive vice president of Scosche. “The P9242 15W wireless power chip provides the highest level of integration for a small footprint, along with the fastest charge time for Qi-compliant devices, so selecting IDT as our partner was an easy decision.”
Expected to hit the market in early 2017, the MagicMount Charge uses powerful, but 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 highly integrated 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 the industry’s highest efficiency energy transfer and reduces system thermal issues.
“Scosche’s selection of our flagship 15W Qi transmitter for its MagicMount Charge Wireless Charging Magnetic Mount marks IDT’s latest success in bringing leading technology to the road,” said Chris Stephens, general manager of IDT’s Wireless Power Division. “We look forward to showcasing this product at CES as an example of the smart products innovative companies like Scosche are developing around our leading wireless power technology.”
