I came across this nifty new device from Analog while looking for wireless charging ICs. Is there an eval kit available for this chip? The datasheet doesn't mention Qi compliance for this charger. Is the chip compliant with Qi standard?
Most other manufacturers have a receiver ic + charger ic solution that is Qi compliant. The LTC4124 looks like an integrated device, but doesn't mention Qi. I am not fully aware of the technical details in wireless power, so may be someone can explain?
The evaluation kit is under development and will be available later this year. This part is not a Qi compliance part as is does not have digital communication between receiver and transmitter. Instead…
This device ticks lots of boxes for us. I just have one question!
If placed on a common or garden Qi or PMA charger pad, will it charge? Or will it only work a with a complementary charger.
We would like our consumers to be able to use technology that they may already own, rather than having to purchase propitiatory chargers from us (thus driving up the cost).
If this device will work as requested are there any special design considerations, and, if it will not work with Qi etc. do you have a similar, low component count device that will?
This device is not Qi compatible and can not be charged with a Qi transmitter (charger pad). We do not have any other products that are Q1 compatible at the moment.
The wireless transmitter (charger pad) design for LTC4124 is low-cost with low component count. You can refer to LTC4126 demo circuit design file for the reference design. LTC4124 demo will also be released soon.
Sorry if this is a repeat question....not sure I sent before....
Any definite date on 4124 demo kit release?
It is really close to be released, hopefully in a month. However, I do not have a specific date.
...any update on dev kit roll out?
Sorry, Phil. I just checked from our system. The demo boards are still in the production process. However, if you want to get a pre-released version of the demo, please contact our FAEs in your region. The pre-released version is available today.
