Wireless Charger 100W:
This demo highlights the capabilities of the STWBC2 -HP, Which is a digital controller dedicated to the design of Qi-certified Wireless Power TX applications and also the capabilities of the STWLC98, Which is the receiver capable of harvesting up to 70W ;
STWBC2-HP is a SiP embedding the STM32G071, it is an ARM Cortex™-M0+ CPU with up to 128 k Flash memory and up to 32 k SRAM with parity check, with a clock frequency of up to at 64 MHz.
It also embeds a 12-bit, 0.5 μs ADC and provides UART, I2C, SPI and GPIOs. The STWBC2-HP can drive the DC-DC stage and the half or full bridge inverter stage of a generic Qi wireless battery charging TX. The STM32G071 embedded in the STWBC2-HP also provides two 12-bit DACs and a USB-PD controller.
The STWBC2-HP based wireless charger TX demo shown here supports up to a TX power of 100W+ with ST proprietary protocol (STSC) it also complies with Qi V1.3 EPP 15W with MP-A2 topology , and STSAFE-A110 authentication. Type-C input interface supports USB-PD 3.0, including PPS, etc., Innovative Q factor measurement for high accuracy QFOD (Foreign Object Detection), it also embeds Rich protections with static and dynamic OVP, OCP, OTP and power. balanced FOD, also has Optional proprietary extension for wider spatial freedom (XYZ)
The Receiver part is wired around the STWLC98 is a highly integrated wireless power receiver suitable for applications delivering output power up to 70W. The chip is designed to support Qi specifications 1.2.4 and 1.3 for inductive communication protocol with Extended Power Profile (EPP) and proprietary ST Super Charge(STSC) protocol for fast charging. With an integrated low-loss synchronous rectifier and low drop-out linear regulator, the STWLC98 achieves high efficiency with low power dissipation. We have a receiver solution based on STWLC99, capable of supporting up to 100W receiver applications.
Through the I2C interface the user can access and change the configuration parameters for customized applications, the final configuration parameters are stored in the embedded Few Times Programmable(FTP) non-volatile memory and are automatically retrieved at power-up. The device can also act as a wireless transmitter up to 15W (depending on the coil) Chip-Scale Package and low BOM count make it very suitable for compact applications.

USB Type-C and Power Delivery:
The demo is an active panel, able to charge your USB Type-C device.
Fast charging of mobile devices is an important part of the industry. Different standards are on the market such as USB type-C, USB Power Delivery and Qualcomm Quick Charge.
ST manufactures ICs to enable fast charging capabilities for any USB powered device.
We present STEVAL-USBPD45C, P-NUCLEO-USB002, STEVAL-ISC004V1, STEVAL-ISC005V1, & STEVAL-USBC2DP, evaluation boards in the Active panel,
The panel shows two different ways to implement architectures for adapters and smart charging in USB-C & PD applications: Programmable solutions and Auto-Run.
The two rows represent the usual scenario where the Source and Sink contract the available capabilities (5V, 9V and 15V) every 5sec.
The SOURCE is based on STEVAL-USBPD45C -45W USB Type-C™ Power Delivery adapter reference design based on STCH03, STM32F051 and STUSB1602A, and the SINK solution is STM32G071B-DISCO, Discovery kit with STM32G071RB MCU.
