PI and Qualcomm Team up to Develop High Speed Chargers for Mobile Devices

July 18th, 2013

Power Integrations today introduced CHY100, the first AC-DC wall-charger interface IC that enables designers of mobile devices to implement Qualcomm's new Quick Charge 2.0 protocol. Quick Charge 2.0 enables users to charge mobile devices up to 75% faster than conventional technology.

Used in combination with Power Integrations' AC-DC switcher ICs, the CHY100 IC adds Quick Charge 2.0 functionality to AC-DC wall chargers. Tests confirm that smartphones with high-capacity batteries charge in about an hour using Quick Charge 2.0 – an impressive improvement from the typical four-hour charging cycles of conventional fixed-voltage chargers.
