Alliance for Wireless Power Moving Forward on Next Gen Technology

The Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) today announced completion of several key milestones that will help bring a more flexible wireless power technology to the global marketplace. This includes growing its member base and working with members to approve and release A4WP's wireless power specification. Additionally, A4WP's branding committee prepares to unveil an official, go-to-market name and logo for its wireless power specification and to launch a parallel technical testing and certification program.

Engaging With Market Leaders in Mobile, Wireless and Automotive

Formed in May 2012, the A4WP is a global and independently operated consortium focused on bringing a more flexible wireless power technology to the consumer electronics and automotive marketplace. Today, the A4WP has grown to 30 members including Samsung Electronics, the global leader in mobile devices, and Broadcom, IDT, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments, the world's top mobile semiconductor manufactures.

A Path Forward for Wireless Power

In October 2012, A4WP's technical working committee approved its flexible wireless power specification. On January 2, 2013, the board of directors approved the technical specification. The specification has been published and is available to all current A4WP members.
A4WP's next generation wireless power technology will give manufacturers and industrial designers greater flexibility when integrating wireless power into devices and surfaces, unlike previous generations of wireless power technologies. Key differentiators of A4WP technology include the following:

• Brings true spatial freedom to wireless charging
o Charge multiple devices anywhere on the charging area at the same time
o Charge multiple device types with different power requirements at the same time o Charge devices without any physical contact within charge area
???
• Better support the real world manufacturing of wireless power applications in automobiles, furniture and other surfaces
o Meets strict form factor and operating characteristics of the most demanding mobile handset manufacturer

• Leverages existing wireless communication technologies (e.g., Bluetooth) to help minimize hardware requirements
