Ditching cords for coils

It’s a common scenario: you get on the plane, in your car or to the hotel and realize you have the wrong cord. But dwindling battery in the corner of your device’s screen means you need power now.

Wireless charging seeks to simplify this problem—just place your device on a pad and feel the power. Anticipation is building for the day when wireless charging will be commonplace, but the market needs your product can help get it there.

Working with Avnet gets you access to tried and true testing systems to help you better implement wireless charging into your projects. More importantly, you gain access to our expertise as a partner in the Wireless Power Consortium—and who we worked with to help shape the industry-leading Qi wireless charging standard.
