Freescale WCT100xA is a wireless power transmitter controller that integrates all required functions for WPC "Qi" compliant wireless power transmitter design. The WCT100xA transmitter IC manages the power transfer by receiving commands from the receiver. Receivers are detected by using either standard protocol methods or Freescale touch sensor technology. Once the mobile device is detected, the WCT100xA controls the power transfer by adjusting rail voltage or phase shift of power stage according to message packets sent by mobile device. To maximize the design freedom and product differentiation, the WCT100xA supports any 5W coil topology capable of supporting WPC Qi-based implementation. In addition, the system supports both WPC and PMA protocols. The WCT100xA also includes CAN/LIN/IIC/SCI/SPI interfaces, over-voltage/current/temperature protection and FOD method to protect from overheating by misplaced metallic foreign objects. It also handles any system fault and operation status, and provides comprehensive indicator outputs for robust system design.
