Magnetic resonance technology is the key to ubiquitous implementation – enabling large surface area transmission, spatial freedom for placement of receiving devices, and the ability to power multiple devices simultaneously.
The popularity of highly resonant wireless power transfer is increasing rapidly, particularly for applications targeting large power transmitting surface areas, with the capability to place receiving devices anywhere on the surface, and the ability to simultaneously power (or charge) multiple devices placed on the surface. The end applications are varied and evolving quickly from cell phone charging to powering handheld tablets and laptop computers. Delivering up to 33 W supports all of these applications.
At the members meeting attendees learned about next-generation wireless power technology – including current and near-future deployments – and heard from leaders such as Alex Lidow from the semiconductor space as well as consumer electronics, robotics, AR/VR, and healthcare industries, to name a few.
AirFuel Alliance’s mission is to bring a diverse base of interoperable products to the global market that deliver the best wireless charging experience for consumers. The organization membership is made up of leading technology and consumer electronics companies. Its board of directors includes representatives from Dell, Duracell, Energous, EPC, ONSemiconductor, PowerSphyr, Qualcomm, Samsung Electronics, Starbucks and WiTricity.
