Maxim Integrated has posted details of an advanced wireless power receiver IC that meets the specification requirements for WPC low-power (v1.2) and PMA SR1 (v2.0) communication protocols. This device operates using near-field magnetic induction when coupled with a WPC or PMA transmitter and provides output power up to 12W.


The IC has precision output current and voltage-sensing, that operates over the entire load range. It enables accurate received power packets, as defined in the WPC specifications, for best foreign object detection (FOD). The IC supports FSK demodulation to receive PMA advertisement ID as well as WPC FSK packets.



The IC features Maxim’s PeerPower function. In PeerPower mode, the IC operates as a transmitter, enabling power transfer to another peer device through in-band ASK communications.


The MAX77950 communicates with an application processor through an I2C serial interface. The status of power transfer and alerts are read through this interface.
