BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Improving the mobile charging experience, Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced it is shipping in volume production the industry's smallest, most efficient wireless power receiver to support both the Wireless Power Consortium's (WPC) Qi 1.1 and Power Matters Alliance (PMA) specifications. The new bq51221 inductor-less, 5-watt receiver's high efficiency and programmable output reduces power loss by as much as 50 percent compared to existing receiver solutions, allowing consumers to more efficiently and quickly charge their mobile phones, headsets and power banks from a Qi or PMA charging station. To order samples and a development kit, visit: www.ti.com/bq51221-pr.
Features and benefits of bq51221:
- Dual-mode, 5-watt receiver: Compliant with Qi 1.1 and PMA communication and control.
- High efficiency for fast charge time: Achieves up to 96 percent power efficiency, and the device's adjustable output voltage helps reduce power loss by as much as 50 percent.
- Industry's smallest, thinnest solution: 3.6-mm by 2.9-mm by 0.5-mm single-chip wireless power receiver achieves a solution size of 75 mm2 without the need for an inductor.
In addition to the dual-mode receiver, TI also introduced its bq51010B next-generation Qi 1.1-compliant receiver with an integrated 7-V regulated supply and foreign object detection. The single-chip receiver, also shipping in volume production, achieves 93 percent power efficiency and ensures the lowest possible power dissipation when charging a Qi-compliant smartphone.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
