What a mess we have with the partnerships that are formed to try to dominate the wireless charging systems. There are mobile device manufacturers who have taken seriously the possibility bulls others look the barrier, but what is inevitable is to think of a future without cables when filling the energy of our phones.
But regardless of the products that are ahead of the manufacturers, which are produced are partnerships between them, knowing that the steps taken must be in favor of standardization to control 14,000 billion that are supposed to business generated in 2020.
The last major movement is called AirFuel Alliance, but before we get to know what it is, and who make it up, we will know that there were three initiatives active. A little mess, yes, and I could not tell which one is more powerful:
- The first is the WPC or Wireless Power Consortium. It is behind
the best known, theQi standard, and has the support of companies
like Samsung, Sony, Huawei, LG and Motorola.
- The second is the Power Matters Alliance or PMA. It is the alliance behind technology Power Mat. Nor lame walk partners, with such big names as AT & T, Duracell, Starbucks, Powermat Technologies, Flextronics, Federal Communications Commission (FCC), or Energy Star.
- The third is A4WP, Alliance for Wireless Power. If the others seemed well supported, here we are with Qualcomm, Broadcom, Intel, or Samsung.
The second and third above-described group decided to join in January. WFP and A4WP would do set path, now it defines a new identity and brand known as AirFuell Alliance.
Although Qi standard was spreading more easily work WPC is seriously threatened by the union of the other two groups, which includes more than 195 companies. These include the presence of Intel, Duracell, Qualcomm, MediaTek and Samsung (yes, Koreans are in all).
Let us remember well the name, we get used q see that Airfuel – and logo – on upcoming products. Under that name we find inductive charging systems, magnetic resonance, and new technologies to be brewing in his arms.
