Indie launches Unparalleled automotive wireless charging solution

Indie Semiconductor has launched an integrated automotive wireless power charging system-on-chip (SoC) that offers the industry’s highest level of integration. The iND87200 simplifies and accelerates the development of cost-effective WPC ‘Qi’-based in-cabin portable device charging designs.


In-cabin charging has become a necessity for drivers and passengers who use their smartphone to provide navigation, music, voice connections and other services on-the-move. The global semiconductor-enabled in-car automotive wireless charger market is estimated1 at U.S. $1.3 billion for2022 and is forecasted to grow to $9.5 billion by 2032, representing a 22% CAGR over this period. The emerging Qi 2.0 standard featuring the Magnetic Power Profile (MPP) is particularly relevant to automotive designs, offering faster, more reliable charging by automatically aligning smartphones with an inductive charging coil, maintaining the device in position irrespective of vehicle motion.

“indie’s breakthrough automotive wireless charging solution speeds device charging times and delivers industry-leading levels of semiconductor and software integration, reducing the external bill-of-materials by almost half relative to existing discrete implementations,” said Fred Jarrar, vice president and general manager of indie Semiconductor’s Power and USB product lines. “This turn-key architecture dramatically reduces system complexity, improves overall reliability and de-risks tier 1 time to market. As a result, indie’s latest SoC will play a pivotal role in enabling automotive OEMs to deliver faster, cost-effective and more reliable portable device charging, contributing to an engaging in-cabin user experience spanning feature-rich cars to entry-level vehicles.”
