Melexis (Tessenderlo, Belgium) launched an automotive grade NFC (Near Field Communication) transceiver of Melexis with Freescale Semiconductor’s (Austin, TX) wireless charging technology. The initial target for this reference design is automotive console applications. This design is built around the MLX90132 NFC Transceiver IC of Melexis and the MWCT1003AVLH controller IC from Freescale. Features allow for:
- A reference design that includes all the required hardware and associated software drivers to allow a fully autonomous behavior of the wireless charging subsystem, controlled via a standard compliant NCI (NFC Controller Interface).
- A co-existence that is managed on the hardware side through an antenna design and on the software side via dedicated control interface.
- A system that can either run in a fully autonomous way or be driven by standard compliant upper NFC software stacks.
