TOKO to Demonstrate Wireless Power Supply at CEATEC JAPAN 2010
SAITAMA, Japan, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ — TOKO, Inc., a developer/manufacturer of electronic components focused on coil-based products, announces that it will give a demonstration of a self-developed wireless power supply system at CEATEC JAPAN 2010. Visitors will have an opportunity to witness TOKO’s technology that contributes to improving convenience and at the same time saving energy consumption by minimizing power transmission losses.
Wireless power supply offers many advantages, including convenience, reliability, waterproofing property and dust prevention. This technology has found widespread applications in various fields, particularly cordless phones. TOKO has shipped a cumulative total of more than 12 million wireless power supply products. It expects to have them employed for small portable devices such as mobile phones and digital cameras. TOKO has joined the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) to step up R&D in this area.
It is 11 years since TOKO launched commercialization and mass production of wireless power supply equipment. Based on its own technology, the company is pushing ahead with improvement in transmission efficiency. It has displayed a particular strength in the coil portion that is the key to wireless power supply, achieving coil-to-coil transmission efficiency of 93% by taking advantage of its winding and RF techniques in which TOKO is strong. At CEATEC JAPAN 2010, wireless power supply using a 4.0-watt class transmission cable will be demonstrated.
As a time-honored coil manufacturer, TOKO possesses a wide array of cutting-edge technologies, including those for winding and electromagnetic/materials analyses. Taking advantage of its technological development capabilities accumulated continuously since its foundation in 1955, TOKO is set to continue commercialization of wireless power supply equipment with further improved transmission efficiency.
