Preh to underpin wireless charging solutions with Qualcomm technology
German auto supplier Preh is to develop wireless electric vehicle charging systems (WEVC) based on technology from Qualcomm under a new licence agreement.
Preh, part of the Chinese Joyson Electronics Group, will include Qualcomm Halo technology in its product portfolio and will focus on commercializing wireless charging systems for plug-in hybrid and EV manufacturers.
Preh is currently developing automotive wireless charging systems based on Double D magnetics with Qualcomm’s technical support, and says it’s in discussions with a number of global automotive manufacturers.
“The inclusion of Qualcomm Halo WEVC technology in our product portfolio is a key development to enhance our e-mobility offering,” said Michael Bischoff, executive director, Preh. “We have strong relationships with all the major global automotive manufacturers and are excited to commercialise higher power WEVC solutions for our customers, with the ultimate aim to enhance the EV driver experience.”
