RF technology is set to usher in a new generation of wireless charging products with multi-device charging capability and simpler infrastructure that differentiate RF-based charging from current first-generation technologies.
FREMONT, CA: AirFuel Alliance, the authority on next-generation wireless power technology and standards, is inviting worldwide participation in the development and release of a global interoperable standard for RF wireless charging technology. AirFuel uses Radio Frequency waves to exchange energy wirelessly from a few centimeters up to a few meters, providing true spatial freedom. RF waves facilitate a volumetric charging experience. It can be integrated into the smallest of electronic devices, such as wearables, hearing aids, and IoT sensors.
While RF technology has been here for years, applications of it have changed exponentially. Standardization is vital because it creates a network effect for the adoption of technology by laying the foundation for others to follow. Evolving standards are perhaps the most significant indicator of the maturity of RF technology, paving the way for product interoperability and infrastructure development necessary for worldwide consumer acceptance. Considerable progress has been made on RF wireless power technology and its applications recently. This includes the first products to incorporate RF wireless power technology achieving regulatory approvals in numerous global markets, and multiple use cases have emerged that can be uniquely addressed through the utilization of RF-based wireless power.
AirFuel is pioneering the global charter in terms of expanding support for next-generation wireless power by including robust RF Standards in its stable of wireless power technologies. As AirFuel finalizes the global RF standard, now is the time for leading players to influence the global standard being drafted by AirFuel Alliance. This AirFuel-sponsored information initiative will be forthcoming to empower engineers and product development teams to deploy RF technology in their applications.
