ST-Ericsson debuts a power management solution that enables quicker charge time for mobile devices while harvesting energy from a wide range of sources and lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

With the compact and cost-effective PM2300, a part of ST-Ericsson's latest PowerHUB family of products, a 3A charger can be used instead of the standard 1.5A, thus reducing charging time by 50 per cent. This also permits intensive use of the mobile device while gaining battery charge during charging mode. The PM2300 utilises an innovative dual DC/DC structure made up of two small coils, rather than one large coil to save space and improve efficiency. The first tablets equipped with the PM2300 are scheduled to be launched commercially in the fall of 2011.

The PowerHUB shall come with a full range of innovative products that merges conventional charging technologies with new energy sources. Such approach shall offer a new level of flexibility and scalability for energy management in portable devices.

Using micro and nanotechnologies, ST-Ericsson is developing future PowerHUB solutions that would be able to draw energy from solar cells, wireless chargers and physical movement, automatically using the optimum power source or best combination of sources available at any time for maximum efficiency.
