Designing a Qi-Compliant Receiver Coil for Wireless Power Systems, Part 1
More InfoLess Info
The implementation of the Wireless Power Consortium's (WPC's) Qi standard brings wireless power to many different end applications. The receiver (Rx) coil for each application may have different geometries and/or power requirements. Since the Rx coil is a key component in a successful design of a Qi-compliant Rx and there are many design options to consider, the designer must take a careful and methodical approach when realizing a solution. This paper provides the technical insight needed to realize a successful Rx-coil design. It covers the Qi-compliant system model as a basic transformer, Rx-coil measurements and system-level influences, and methods of qualifying a design for successful operation.
