Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) will demonstrate at CES 2017 an advanced in-car wireless power application that enables automobile and equipment manufacturers to conveniently and safely build the popular feature into cars. Developed around the IDT® high-efficiency 15W transmitter, the demonstration showcases how the technology can be elegantly built into front-seat consoles or back seating areas to deliver seamless wireless charging on the go. The demonstration is the product of collaboration between IDT and Eggtronic, a leading innovator of wireless power products.
The demonstration emulates a real car environment, with the phone display and charging status mirrored onto the auto infotainment panel.
