Chipset enables fast charge protocol for mobile devices

Dialog Semiconductor has announced that Huawei’s new Honor 7 smartphones use its iW630+iW1780+iW671 Rapid Charge adapter chipset to enable Huawei’s Fast Charger Protocol (FCP). FCP is a proprietary protocol from Huawei, designed to charge smartphones and other mobile devices significantly faster than conventional USB charging technology. Dialog’s iW630+iW1780+iW671 chipset provides very high efficiency and high power density needed for small form-factor fast-charging smartphones and mobile device power adapters.
