Finalists Selected for Contest Seeking Novel Applications for IDT's Wireless Power Kits

SAN JOSE, CA -- Integrated Device Technology, Inc. announces that 30 finalists have been selected from 119 entries in a contest to develop a novel application for IDT's wireless power reference kits. Introduced in August for the mass market, the 5 W kits provide proven wireless power technology in a format that can easily be integrated into designs, enabling developers not familiar with the intricacies of wireless power to incorporate the capabilities into a broad range of products. The contest is hosted on the Hackster website at https://www.hackster.io/challenges/IDT-Power  

The 30 innovators have been sent the wireless power kits and must now build their projects using the kits and Digi-Key's Scheme-it tool. Winners will be announced March 6 and will receive Samsung products wirelessly powered through IDT chips.

Ideas that made the preliminary cut include a wirelessly powered:
•environmental sensor
•mouse and keyboard
•auto-recharging dog tracking collar
•kid-safe table charger

Additional entries included a:
•Floating wireless ambient light
•Wireless power case for Arduino Uno
