Infineon makes your world wireless with the all new XMC™-SC Wireless Power Controllers

Infineon's XMC™-SC Wireless Power Controller, based on the ARM® Cortex®-M0 core, provides a powerful and cost-effective platform for high performance, smart and safe wireless charging applications. The XMC wireless power controller helps the next-generation wireless charging systems meet strict safety, environmental and regulatory requirements, while still enabling industry-leading charging performance and efficiency. This controller works seamlessly with Infineon's power devices in a scalable architecture to provide a complete charging solution for everything from a fast charge smartphone, to a 20 W robot, to a 60 W drone and beyond, to 80 W power tool applications.  

Infineon´s wireless charging solutions remove the hassle of re-fueling your devices. By using electromagnetic fields to transfer power from a transmitter to a receiver application, it charges your battery without a physical connection. All thanks to a wireless charging power supply. Now compatible devices from a wide range of receiver applications can fuel up cable-free. Currently, inductive or resonant solutions can be used for the following applications.
