Abstract

Distribution of wireless power charging field uniformly on a large area pad is critical for power receivers, particularly for wearable devices, wherein small form factor coils are involved. Since the receiver coil size is quite limited in these types of applications, the device is very sensitive to the amount of field it could retain and hence, it needs special placement or snapping mechanism to fix it at an optimum location for reliable wireless charging. In order to overcome this limitation for the end-user, a dual-mode multi-coil power transceiver system is proposed; utilizing resonance filtering to increase the amount of total power delivered with the rather uniform spatial distribution. Two concentric coils; center one driven by 6.78-MHz high-frequency driver (A4WP) and the outer larger one with a 200-KHz low-frequency driver (Qi) with resonant blocker could transfer up to 50 mW standards compliant flat power to a 13-mm radius 30-turns wearable receiver coil everywhere across an 8-cm radius charging pad area without any alignment requirement or snapping. Two different feedback topologies corresponding to each of the H-Bridge power drivers were also presented as an automatic series resonance coil drive frequency lock mechanism, extracting peak powers for each system individually from a standard 5 V-1A USB wall charger.
