WiTricity and Texas Instruments Collaborate on Electric Vehicle Wireless Charging Solution

World News: . []

WiTricity, the industry pioneer in wireless power transfer over distance, today announced it has collaborated with Texas Instruments (TI) to use automotive-grade semiconductor components in WiTricity’s DRIVE 11 wireless charging systems and reference designs.

WiTricity’s industry-leading DRIVE 11 wireless charging system enables drivers to park their electric vehicles (EVs) and be assured of rapid and efficient charging without having to handle charging cables. WiTricity’s TMN™ Controller utilizing TI’s C2000™ real-time control microcontroller (MCU) can enable DRIVE 11-based electric vehicles and charging stations to automatically optimize energy transfer between the source and vehicle in a wide range of real-world operating conditions including parking misalignment, differing vehicle ground clearance and varying battery voltage conditions.

"New automotive technologies, such as wireless charging, are entering the market at a rapid pace,” said Alex Gruzen, CEO, WiTricity. "TI has been enabling innovation for decades and working with them to deliver robust WiTricity automotive-grade silicon will give carmakers and Tier 1 suppliers confidence to deploy complete wireless charging solutions. We’re excited to be collaborating with TI to bring our TMN technology to carmakers around the world.”

“Convenient charging built to automotive industry standards is a key to growing the adoption of electric vehicles. WiTricity’s wireless charging technology can serve to expand the automotive charging ecosystem,” said Matt Watson, general manager of TI’s C2000 MCU business. "At TI, we are committed to delivering innovations to enable the electrification of vehicles and the rapid evolution toward a greener future.”
