The wireless power technology landscape continues to evolve
Abstract: The reach of the wireless power technology continues to grow and expands beyond smartphones, to wider applications and industry sectors, be it consumer, wearables, appliances, computing, smart home, medical, industrial, robotics, automotive, e-mobility, telecom, retail amongst others. Wireless power technology is on the brink of becoming mainstream and soon to be offered as a standard feature, but it needs further technological advancement and at regular intervals. New applications with unique form-factors, design challenges, charging needs, use-cases, and with the strong desire for interoperability are adopting next-generation wireless power solutions that include - low-frequency induction and resonance; high-frequency resonance and NFC Charging; ultra-high frequency ‘distance’ wireless charging based on RF, infrared (IR) as well as Energy Harvesting. While the use of industry standard-based solutions had triggered adoption, we are expected to see influx of proprietary solutions catering to the specific needs of wide range of applications, with unique use-cases, addressing pain-points of consumer and commercial establishments. Times are going to be interestingly wireless.
