The Powermat PMT 100 Wireless Power Solution is a medium 40W wireless power solution without a microcontroller on the receiver side and can be tailored to fit specific product requirements based on the company’s SmartInductive technology. The PMT 100 receiver is designed for small form factor IoT devices for wireless power and charging, supporting battery charging functionality and smart battery interfaces.

With no receiver microcontroller and minimal peripheral components, says the company, the Powermat PMT 100 supports the design and development of smaller, more discreet portable products and reduces overall wireless power implementation costs by up to 50 percent. Key features of the Powermat PMT 100 Wireless Power Solution include:

  • Power Range:
    • Receiver max power output: 40W
    • Receiver max voltage: 30V
    • Max current: 2A
  • Extremely small PCBA enabling product miniaturization
  • Coil support:
    • Litz wire or PCB coil
    • Coil diameter >=10mm
  • Easy drop and charge solutions for increased misalignment and angular device placement
  • Foreign Object Detection (FOD)
  • Battery charging and support of smart battery interface
  • Cost-saving solution – up to 50% cost reduction in comparison to standard wireless power receivers
  • Powermat transmitter solution compatible

“IoT is unlocking massive business value and stands to revolutionize considerable aspects of our society,” says Powermat CEO Elad Dubzinski. “Whether in the form of small personal health trackers that senses COVID exposure or at-home smart security systems, these devices need reliable wireless power and seamless connectivity to unlock their full functionality – that’s where the Powermat comes in.”

Powermat PMT 100 leverages the company’s SmartInductive technology, which is based on magnetic induction but allows for a broader scope of capabilities than traditional magnetic induction solutions found in the market today. Powermat SmartInductive Technology is designed to offer a hybrid solution between inductive wireless charging and resonance, producing more power, more freedom of positioning, longer ranges between wireless power transmitters and receivers, and lower implementation costs.
