Abstract

The Non-Metallic Connector (NMC) was introduced several years ago. In this new iteration, the NMC has been redesigned to accomplish data transfer with an optical interface and wireless power transfer with the use of micro-inductors. To demonstrate the wireless power transfer (WPT), an NMC for a USB flash drive is proposed. The challenge for the WPT design is to understand the geometric and physical constraints inside the connector housings (form factor). Equations for optimal power transfer performance in this miniature environment are presented followed by simulations that verify the efficient WPT. Initial measurements on the proposed WPT system also validate the concept.
