EPC and JJPlus Collaborate on GaN-based Wireless Power Solutions

JJPlus Corporation and Efficient Power Conversion Corporation have announced their collaboration to create GaN-based wireless power solutions. The companies intend to address the recently announced Taiwan wireless power standards organization’s adoption of AirFuel™ Alliance’s resonant wireless charging standard. In addition to the Taiwan effort, the companies plan to use these designs for wireless charging systems worldwide.

The AirFuel Alliance is a global consortium of industry leaders focused on enabling and accelerating the adoption of wireless power technology. The AirFuel Alliance recently introduced its resonant technology standard and signed a Letter of Intent with the Taiwan Association of Information and Communication Standards (TAICS), that will establish a wireless charging ecosystem in Taiwan through the introduction of that standard.

Jeff Shu, General Manager of JJPlus Corporation, said, “Our collaboration is in direct support of TAICS/AirFuel’s initiative in their launch of public wireless charging spots at coffee shops, airports or hotels. We look forward to employing EPC’s leading gallium nitride technology and working with their expert teams, who work closely with Witricity, to take a leadership position in this fast-growing market.”

Alex Lidow, EPC CEO and Co-founder, noted, “Our eGaN technology has been supporting the wireless charging market development with our business partners and customers worldwide for over three years. JJPlus is an exceptional team with technical know-how, dedication, and expertise whose customer design solutions serve as market-leading solutions. With the introduction of AirFuel’s resonant technology in Taiwan’s wireless charging ecosystem, the adoption of wireless charging applications will be accelerated, further fueling the overall expansion of the GaN power market.”
