Renesas and Panthronics jointly announced they are collaborating to bring suitable solutions to the consumer, industrial, and IoT markets. The collaboration realises technical leadership in performance, size reduction, lower BOM and power consumption, while offering OEMs faster time to market.

Renesas is pairing its wireless charging ICs with Panthronics’ Near-Field Communications (NFC) readers and controllers to accelerate adoption with a broader set of customers and applications.

Panthronics NFC solutions deliver highest power and connectivity for wireless charging applications thanks to their patented sine wave driver architecture. Renesas delivers wireless power solutions both for the receivers used in smartphones and other applications, as well as the transmitters inside charging pads and automotive in-car applications.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Panthronics to deliver wireless charging paired with NFC connectivity for the explosive IoT market,” said Dr. Amit Bavisi, Vice President of Engineering, IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit at Renesas. “We believe that our combined technical excellence and differentiated IP will allow us to design turn-key, smallest and highest performance wireless power solutions, which our customers crave for their next-generation IoT endpoint products.”

“This collaboration enables Renesas’ broad range of customers and expansive partner ecosystem to directly benefit from our ground-breaking NFC solutions,” said Mark Dickson, CMO of Panthronics. “The combination of Panthronics disruptive NFC products delivering industry-best RF performance combines perfectly with Renesas’ best-in-class wireless charging technology to leap ahead of all product solutions available today.”

Both companies are exploring further collaboration and integration opportunities with Panthronics NFC products and Renesas microcontrollers, microprocessors, analogue, power, sensor and connectivity products.
