Kinetic Technologies Announces Leading Wireless Charging and RGB LED Driver Solutions at CES 2020

Kinetic Technologies

While the proprietary KTD2052 RGB Driver builds upon the company’s industry leading position, the KTE7000 expands our product line portfolio, offering customers more options, and takes advantage of Kinetic’s robust fault protection IP.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (PRWEB) January 07, 2020
Power management leader Kinetic Technologies is announcing two new power management IC products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas: the KTE7000 5W Wireless Power Receiver and the KTD2052 12-Channel RGB LED Driver. The KTE7000 is a 5W Wireless Power Receiver and is the company’s first in a new line of WPC/Qi compliant, Wireless Charging products. The KTD2052 packs a 12-Channel, I2C controlled RGB driver, in a tiny 8-pin UDFN package; over 2x smaller than competing products.
“The introduction of these two new ICs demonstrates Kinetic’s strategy of developing a comprehensive portfolio of leading power management products that our customers demand.” says Kin Shum, CEO of Kinetic Technologies. “While the proprietary KTD2052 RGB Driver builds upon the company’s industry leading position, the KTE7000 expands our product line portfolio, offering customers more options, and takes advantage of Kinetic’s robust fault protection IP.” Both products will be demonstrated at the show.
The KTE7000 is a single-chip 5W wireless power receiver that conforms to WPC/Qi v1.2.4 Baseline Power Profile (BPP) standards. Fully compatible with all WPC/Qi certified transmitters, the KTE7000 will operate in BPP mode (Baseline Power Profile) when interoperating with either BPP transmitters or EPP (Extended Power Profile) transmitters. The KTE7000 integrates a full-synchronous rectifier with robust voltage surge protection and an LDO to efficiently convert the wireless AC power into 5V DC power at up to 1.5A. Higher power outputs are possible in proprietary modes. An embedded microcontroller with ROM and programmable memory provides power management, protection, and communications with the power transmitter. The KTE7000 is available in a green compliant, 52-bump, 2.66mm x 3.90mm, WLCSP package.
The KTD2052 is a 12-Channel LED driver, ideal for driving up to 4 RGBs in AI Smart speakers, IoT, Gaming Controllers, or VR Headsets. Packaged in a tiny 2 x 2 mm UDFN, the KTD2052 uses multiplexing techniques, to reduce the number of PCB traces by a factor of 3, significantly reducing the solution size over competing solutions. Programmed by a 1MHz, I2C serial interface, the KTD2052 has an integrated pattern/animation engine that controls 12 independent current sinks with, in NORMAL-mode, up to 24mA/LED in 125µA steps and in NIGHT-mode, up to 1.5mA/LED in 8µA steps. A 3-bit programmable fade-rate with ultra-smooth 8µA steps is also included. The KTD2052 also includes Kinetic’s patented BrightExtend™ and CoolExtend™ technologies preserving color balance and the ability to maintain light output at high operating temperatures. In case of LED failure (Shorts, Open, Dropout) additional protection and monitoring functions are included. The KTD2052 is available in a green compliant, 8-pin, 2.0mm x 2.0mm, UDFN package.

Kinetic Financial Joins Together to Support the Travis Mills Foundation

Travis Mills Imparts Inspiration and Perspective to Kinetic Financial Advisors at Annual Kinetic Konference Event
Press Release – updated: Oct 30, 2019 18:00 PDT

LOS ANGELES, October 30, 2019 (Newswire.com) – ​​Each year, Kinetic Financial, a trusted concierge-based financial services company in Los Angeles, hosts Kinetic Konference, an inspirational and informative summit for its financial advisors. This year, it had the pleasure of hosting retired United States Army veteran and recalibrated warrior Travis Mills, who spoke at the event. Mills’ speech was so impactful that many of Kinetic’s advisors were compelled to donate to the Travis Mills Foundation, including a $10,000 donation from Kinetic Financial’s President, Ali Hashemian.
“The financial industry can be difficult. It is highly complex and always changing with new risks to consider,” said Hashemian. “However, when you see what Travis has overcome and with such high spirits, it really puts life into perspective. As he says, ‘If you’re having a bad day, wiggle your fingers and toes. Then remember how lucky you are that you can do that.’ I was so pleased that our advisors were able to benefit from his inspirational story.”
“It was such a pleasure to speak at Kinetic Konference and share my experiences,” said Mills. “I am deeply humbled by the generous support from Ali and his team. It is people and professionals such as them that help reinstate new hope to recalibrated veterans and Americans across this country.”
As Mills took the floor at Kinetic Konference, the audience was entirely engaged. He took the room through a range of emotions, spanning from sad to angry to sympathetic to hopeful. In speaking about his darkest moments, after losing portions of his arms and legs while on active duty in Afghanistan, he recalled asking “why me?” And yet, Mills persevered. Today, he lives and teaches by the motto: “Never Give Up. Never Quit.” 
“We are all connected as humans on earth. Regardless of race, religion, sexuality, or any other differences we may have, all of that is overshadowed by the fact that we are all the same species sharing the same planet. That makes us so close to each other,” says Hashemian. “Philanthropy and community service are how we can praise that interconnectedness. Caring for others is one of the most intelligent traits we share as human beings. We should be proud of practicing that instinctual talent that is innate in all of us.”
Following the event, Hashemian encouraged all of Kinetic Financial’s advisors to make a contribution to the Travis Mills Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing post 9/11 veterans who have been injured in active duty and their families an all-inclusive, all-expense paid, barrier-free vacation to Maine, where they may participate in adaptive activities, bond with other veteran families, and enjoy much needed rest, recovery, and relaxation.
Recently, the Travis Mills Foundation announced it is matching all donations up to $500,000 for the remainder of the year. For more information and to join in Kinetic Financial’s support, please visit https://www.classy.org/campaign/travis-mills-foundation/c250212.
