HARMAN smart/auto Automotive Wireless Charger

Integrate the latest Qi-compliant technology to enable in-vehicle wireless smartphone fast charging

Charging Smartphones on the Go

Consumers rely on their phones for a whole spectrum of connected services which can rapidly deplete the battery. Keeping a mobile device charged is a never-ending story for many. HARMAN has solved for this with a built-in wireless charger presenting a far more convenient way to charge a device while traveling.​​

Designed for Automotive Integration

The HARMAN smart/auto Wireless Charging Module helps automakers integrate the latest Qi-compliant technology, enabling in-vehicle wireless smartphone charging for their customers. Equipped with three transmitting coils, the HARMAN wireless charger supports best-in-class transmitter-receiver coupling and position freedom. It incorporates a smart interface that communicates with the most common automotive buses (CAN, LIN, etc.) to continuously monitor the charging status. An advanced Foreign Object Detection (FOD) feature reliably prevents transmitting power to any none Qi-compliant object such as coins, paper clips, foil, wrappers, etc. The wide range of WPC Qi standards from 5W low power up to 15W medium power supports the most popular proprietary fast-charge algorithms. Designed as an automotive-grade ECU, the charging module is compliant with automotive safety, security, environmental and regulatory requirements, while enabling industry-leading charging performance and efficiency.
