Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION


Field of the Invention



[0001] Embodiments of the present invention relate to a wireless charging and communication board and a wireless charging and communication device.

Description of the Related Arts



[0002] As one of radio frequency tag identification (RFID) technologies, near field communication (NFC) is a smart card type contactless communication technology using a frequency band of 13.56 MHz. As a wireless charging technology, wireless power conversion (WPC) is a contactless charging technology for charging a battery using magnetic coupling at a short range without electrical contact.

[0003] NFC is a next-generation near field communication technology which receives attention because NFC enables wireless communication between electrical devices at a short range with low power and has relatively excellent security due to the short communication range and a low price. Furthermore, it is advantageous in that NFC has a bidirectional property and a large storage memory space compared to a smart card, and the range of applicable services is wide. Also, it is advantageous in that WPC can be applied to various fields regarding battery charging because WPC enables battery charging via magnetic coupling without electrical contact.

[0004] An antenna used in the NFC or WPC system includes a coil having a fixed area and receives necessary energy for the operation of a microchip from a reader. A magnetic field is formed by alternating current power energy generated from a primary coil so that electrical currents passing through the coil of the antenna can be abandoned, and a voltage is generated by an inductance of the antenna. The voltage is used as power for data transmission or is used in charging a battery.

[0005] As a smart terminal has widely come into wide use, the need of a device capable of providing both the NFC and WPC has been increased. Thus, the development of a device having high charging efficiency and a sufficient long recognition distance upon data communication has been required.

[0036] The power source may be an alternating current power source providing an alternating current having a predetermined frequency. An alternating current flows through the first transmission coil patterns 520 by power supplied from the power source (not drawn).

[0037] When the alternating current flows through the first transmission coil pattern 520, the alternating current is also induced to the first reception coil pattern 120 spaced apart from the first transmission coil pattern 520 by electromagnetic induction.

[0038] The current induced to the reception coil pattern 120 is transmitted to the separate circuit part (not drawn) and is then rectified.

[0039] Meanwhile, the transmitter 500 according to the present embodiment of the invention may be composed of a transmission pad, and the receiver 100 may be constituted as an element for a portable terminal, a home/personnel electronic product, a transportation means and the like to which wireless power conversion is applied. The portable terminal, the home/personnel electronic product, the transportation means and the like to which wireless power conversion is applied may include only a wireless power receiver or may include both a wireless power transmitter and a wireless power receiver.

[0040] That is, the transmitter 500 may serve as a reader, and the receiver 100 may serve as a tag.

[0041] The receiver 100 may include a wireless charging and communication board and a housing 400 in which the wireless charging and communication board is received. The housing 400 may radiate heat generated from the coil pattern 120, 130 to the outside.

[0043] Also, the polymeric material layer 310, 312 may include a first polymeric material layer 310 arranged on one surface of the soft magnetic layer 220, 230, and a second polymeric material layer 321 arranged on the other surface of the soft magnetic layer 220, 230.

[0044] At this time, the polymeric material layer 310, 312 may be made with a black film. The polymeric material layer 310, 312 may be adhered to the soft magnetic layer 220, 230 via an adhesive layer 315. The polymeric material layer 310, 312 may contain any one material of polyethylene, polyacrylic, polyimide, polyamide, and polyurethane.

[0045] Meanwhile, the soft magnetic layer 220, 230 may be configured such that, on the same plane on which the first soft magnetic layer 220 and the second soft magnetic layer 230 are arranged, the second soft magnetic layer 230 is arranged around the first soft magnetic layer 220, more specifically, the second soft magnetic layer 230 is disposed to surround the first soft magnetic layer 220.

[0046] Also, the coil pattern 120, 130 may include the first coil pattern 120 arranged in a region on the second polymeric material layer 312 corresponding to the first soft magnetic layer 220, and second coil pattern 130 arranged in a region on the second polymeric material layer 312 corresponding to the second soft magnetic layer 230.

[0048] Accordingly, according to the present embodiment of the invention, both the constitution including the first soft magnetic layer 220 and the first coil pattern (120) and capable of enabling wireless power conversion (WPC) and the constitution including the second soft magnetic layer 230 and the second coil pattern 130 and capable of enabling near field communication (NFC) may be included, and both the WPC and NFC may be provided.

[0049] Meanwhile, in another embodiment, the first transmission coil pattern 520 may be composed of a coil pattern for near field communication (NFC), and the second transmission coil pattern 530 may be composed of a coil pattern for wireless power conversion (WPC).

[0050] FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional view of a wireless charging and communication board according to one embodiment of the present invention.

[0051] As illustrated in FIG. 2, a wireless charging and communication board according to one embodiment of the present invention may include: a soft magnetic layer 220, 230; a polymeric material layer 310 312 arranged on one surface and the other surface of the soft magnetic layer 220, 230 and extending longer than an exposed portion of the soft magnetic layer 220, 230; and a coil pattern 120, 130 arranged on the polymeric material layer 310, 312.

[0052] Also, the polymeric material layer 310, 312 may include a first polymeric material layer 310 and a second polymeric material layer 312; the soft magnetic layer 220, 230 may include a first soft magnetic layer 220 and a second magnetic layer 230; and the coil pattern 120, 130 may include a first coil pattern 120 and a second coil pattern 130.

[0053] Also, an extension length 1 of the polymeric material layer 310, 312 and a thickness h of the magnetic soft material layer 220, 230 may be formed to have a relation of the following Equation 1.



[0054] At this time, 1 represents an extension length of the polymeric material layer, h represents a thickness of the soft magnetic layer 220, 230, and A represents a constant of 0.6 to 10. When the value of A is less than 0.6, the polymeric material layer 310, 312 may not sufficiently surround the soft magnetic layer 220, 230, so that moisture can penetrate. When the value of A is more than 10, the polymeric material layer 310, 312 may excessively extend so that the polymeric material layer can be easily bent and damaged by an external impact, or a thickness can be increased because a separate receiving part should be added.

[0055] Also, the first soft magnetic layer 220 and the second soft magnetic layer 230 may be made of different materials. For example, the first soft magnetic layer 220 may be made with an amorphous ribbon, and the second soft magnetic layer 230 may be made of any one material of a composite, a ferrite, a Ni-Zn material, and a Mn-Zn material.

[0056] When the first soft magnetic layer 220 is made with an amorphous ribbon, high permeability can be implemented in an operating frequency of 100 to 200 kHZ. When the second soft magnetic layer 230 is made of any one material of a composite, a ferrite, a Ni-Zn material, and a Mn-Zn material, data loss generated during communication can be reduced.

[0057] When the soft magnetic layer 120 is made of a ferrite material, the soft magnetic layer may be implemented in various forms such as a pellet form, a plate form, a ribbon form, a foil form, a film form and the like. Also, the soft magnetic layer 120 may contain at least one of Fe, Ni, Co, Mn, Al, Zn, Cu, Ba, Ti, Sn, Sr, P, B, N, C, W, Cr, Bi, Li, Y and Cd.

[0058] The coil pattern 120, 130 may include the first coil pattern 120 arranged in a region on the polymeric material layer 310 corresponding to the first soft magnetic layer 220, and the second coil pattern 130 arranged in a region on the polymeric material layer 310 corresponding to the second soft magnetic layer 230.

[0059] At this time, as illustrated in FIG. 2, the coil pattern 120, 130 may be adhered to the polymeric material layer 310 via an adhesive layer 135.

[0060] FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional view of a wireless charging and communication board according to another embodiment of the present invention.

[0061] As illustrated in FIG. 3, a wireless charging and communication board according to the present embodiment of the invention includes: a soft magnetic layer 220, 230; a polymeric material layer 310, 312 arranged on one surface and the other surface of the soft magnetic layer 220, 230, and extending longer than an exposed portion of the soft magnetic layer 220, 230; and a coil pattern 120, 130 arranged on the polymeric material layer 310, 312.

[0062] However, in the embodiment of FIG. 3, the wireless charging and communication board further includes a polymeric material connector 313 intended for connecting the first polymeric material layer 310 and the second polymeric material layer 312 and surrounding the exposed portion of the soft magnetic layer 220.

[0063] Accordingly, in the embodiment of FIG. 3, the exposed portion may refer to an end exposed by a processing hole 311, and the polymeric material connector 313 surrounding the exposed portion of the soft magnetic layer 220 may prevent water penetration from the outside.

[0064] FIGS. 4 and 5 are cross-sectional views of a wireless charging and communication board according to a further embodiment of the present invention.

[0065] According to the embodiment of FIGS. 4 and 5, the polymeric material layer 310, 312 may be directly formed on the soft magnetic layer 220, 230 without forming an adhesive layer 315 for adhering the polymeric material layer 310, 312 to the soft magnetic layer 220, 230.

[0066] At this time, the polymeric material layer 310, 312 may be directly formed on the soft magnetic layer 220, 230 via thermal compression bonding.

[0067] Like the embodiment of FIGS. 4 and 5, when the polymeric material layer 310, 312 is directly formed on the soft magnetic layer 220, 230, there is no need to use an adhesive layer so that a process can be simplified, a production cost can be reduced, and the wireless charging and communication board can be more thinly produced.

[0068] Meanwhile, in the embodiments of FIGS. 2 to 6, a cross section of the processing hole of the wireless charging and communication board has been explained as an example, but the exposed portion of an end for connecting the lead frame may be also identically configured.

[0069] FIG. 6 is a top view illustrating coil patterns according to one embodiment of the present invention, more specifically, a view illustrating wireless charging and communication board included in a receiver according to one embodiment of the present invention.

[0070] FIG. 7 is a top view illustrating a soft magnetic layer according to one embodiment of the present invention and FIG. 8 is a top view illustrating a polymeric material layer according to one embodiment of the present invention.

[0071] The coil pattern 120, 130 may be adhered to the polymeric material layer 310 via the adhesive layer 135 as shown in FIG. 2, or may be disposed on a separate substrate 110 as shown in FIG. 6.

[0072] As illustrated in FIG. 6, align marks 115, 116 for enabling aligning upon the wireless charging and communication board may be formed on the substrate 110.

[0073] Also, as illustrated in FIGS. 7 and 8, the wireless charging and communication board may further include a lead frame 140 connected to the coil pattern 120, 130, and the second soft magnetic layer 230 may be disposed to surround the lead frame 140.

[0074] More specifically, as shown in FIG. 4, the second soft magnetic layer 230 may be disposed to surround the lead frame 140 at a regular interval of 1 to 3 mm. As such, when the second soft magnetic layer 230 is disposed to surround the lead frame 140 at the regular interval, even though the lead frame 140 is disposed, the problem of a reduction in transmission efficiency upon charging or a reduction in a recognition distance upon data communication can be prevented.

[0075] Also, in the exposed portion of an end for connecting the lead frame 140, the polymeric material layer 310, 312 extending longer than the soft magnetic layer 220, 230 may be formed as shown in FIG. 2, or the polymeric material connector 313 surrounding an end of the polymeric material layer 310, 312 may be formed as shown in FIG. 3.

[0076] The polymeric material layer 310, 312 of FIG. 8 may be disposed on one surface and the other surface of the first and second soft magnetic layers 220, 230. The polymeric material layer 310, 312 may be disposed to be adhered to the first and second magnetic layer 220, 230 via the adhesive layer 315.

[0077] Also, the processing hole 311 may be formed in the polymeric material layer 310, 312 and the soft magnetic layer 220.

[0078] The processing hole 311 may perform aligning with the align marks 115, 116 of FIG. 6 upon manufacturing the wireless charging and communication board.

[0079] FIGS. 9 and 10 are cross-sectional views of a wireless charging and communication board according to yet another embodiment of the present invention.

[0080] The wireless charging and communication board according to the present embodiment of the invention of FIGS. 9 and 10 may be configured such that the soft magnetic layer 220, 230 is adhered onto one surface and the other surface of the adhesive layer 223, respectively.

[0081] According to the embodiment of the invention of FIGS. 9 and 10, the soft magnetic layer 220, 230 may be added in plural numbers so that transmission efficiency upon charging can be adjusted or improved, a recognition distance upon data communication can be adjusted.

[0082] FIGS. 11 to 13 are view illustrated for explaining transmission efficiency and a recognition distance of the wireless charging and communication board according to one embodiment of the present invention.

[0083] More specifically, FIG. 11 is a table showing the comparison of charges in transmission efficiency and a recognition distance according to a conventional art and the embodiment of the present invention, FIG. 12 is a graph illustrating a charge in transmission efficiency resulting from a change in a diameter of the processing hole according to the embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 13 is a graph illustrating a change in transmission efficiency resulting from a distance of the soft magnetic layers according to the embodiment of the present invention.

[0084] According to the present embodiment of the invention, as illustrated in FIG. 11, comparing embodiment A in which the second soft magnetic layer does not surround around the lead frame, and a processing hole is not formed, and embodiment B in which the second soft magnetic layer surrounds around the lead frame, and the processing hole is formed, there is a slight difference in transmission efficiency and there is no difference in a recognition distance.

[0085] Also, as illustrated in FIG. 12, when a diameter of the processing hole is changed to the range of 1 to 3 mm, the effect of an increase in transmission efficiency is generated. As illustrated in FIG. 13, when the soft magnetic layer (the second soft magnetic layer) surrounds around the lead frame, transmission efficiency is slight reduced, so there is no large difference in transmission efficiency.

[0086] As set forth above, according to some embodiments of the present invention, the wireless charging and communication board may enable both the wireless power conversion (WPC) and near field communication (NFC).

[0087] According to some embodiments of the present invention, the a portion of the soft magnetic layer exposed to the atmosphere is minimized so that the inflow of a foreign substance to the outside can be minimized, and the soft magnetic layer is disposed to surround the lead frame at a regular interval so that the problems of a reduction in transmission efficiency upon charging and a reduction in a recognition distance upon data communication can be overcome even though the lead frame is disposed.

[0088] Furthermore, according to some embodiments of the present invention, the soft magnetic layer is added so that transmission efficiency upon charging can be adjusted or improved, and a recognition distance upon data communication can be adjusted.

[0089] As previously described, in the detailed description of the invention, having described the detailed exemplary embodiments of the invention, it should be apparent that modifications and variations can be made by persons skilled without deviating from the spirit or scope of the invention.
