15W All-in-One RTX/TX Solution


This solution is applicable to medium and low-power consumer electronic products, such as smartphones, tablets, wearable devices, smart accessories, electric toothbrushes, power banks, and car mounts.


Solution Advantages


High-Precision Foreign Object Detection for Enhanced Charging Safety

This solution employs Maxic's proprietary Q value detection technology, ensuring accurate detection of Q value variations in Tx coils caused by foreign objects. With a detection accuracy of within 2%, it achieves lower power consumption and more precise foreign object detection, thereby ensuring charging safety.


Full Integration of RTx/Tx for Compact Chip Size

As electronic devices continue to undergo miniaturization, there is an escalating demand for reduced chip dimensions. The downsizing of semiconductor components facilitates enhanced portability, lightweight development, and increased functionality within a confined space. Employing fully integrated RTx/Tx chips, this solution features the MT5706 single-chip measuring a mere 2.1mm×3.3mm in WLCSP 5×8 packaging, and the MT5806 single-chip measuring 3mm×4mm in FCQFN24L packaging. This results in a smaller PCB footprint and higher cost-effectiveness.
