Infineon partnering with Rompower: Expanding the competence in system solutions for universal chargers
MUNICH, Jan. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) and Rompower to expand 
expertise and develop universal chargers with high efficiency and compact 
design. These USB-PD chargers (Power Delivery) with the universal USB-C 
connector enable the power supply of e.g. monitors or smart speakers as well as 
charging of mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. Today, these plugs 
already perform other functions, such as fast charging smartphones. Using the 
USB-PD technology, smartphones can be fully charged in less than an hour.

The next development stage for all these functions will be to install permanent 
USB-PD wall outlets. With a maximum power output of 100 W made possible by the 
USB-PD standard, the outlets not only support fast charging of mobile devices, 
but also function as adapters. In the medium term, USB-PD charging sockets will 
be common in public buildings, such as airports and hotels, as well as in 
private homes. This will reduce the runaway growth of portable adapters and 

Within the partnership, Infineon will contribute its semiconductor expertise, 
Rompower will offer its technologies and international know-how in the system 
area as well as in the construction of compact, small and highly efficient 
charging solutions. The first step is the development of system solutions for 
compact fast chargers for smartphones and USB-PD wall outlets.
