ST-Ericsson launches fast Charging Solution for phones and tablets

ST-Ericsson announced the launch of a new power management solution that will significantly reduces the charging time for mobile devices from a wall socket. The device called PM2300,  uses an innovative dual DC/DC structure made up of two small coils, high performance power MOS and feature up to 60% PCB footprint reduction compared to existing solutions.

ST-Ericsson claims that their innovation has a high charging current capability and charges batteries in half the time of conventional charging circuitry. It charges the battery at 3A instead of 1.5A max,  allowing 50 percent reduction of the charging time. It also allows the mobile device to be charged while being used intensively in charging mode.

“We are creating easier, greener, faster, in short more innovative, ways to power up smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. People can recharge their batteries more quickly and thus enjoy a better mobile experience,” said Patrick Dureault, vice president, head of Analog & Mixed Signal business unit at ST-Ericsson.

The first tablets equipped with the PM2300 are set to be launched commercially in the fall of 2011.
