Eight electronics manufacturers joined in consortium to develop innovative equipment loading solutions. The Wireless Power Consortium will dedicate itself to the development of an international standard for charging devices through wireless systems, activated to charge products in its vicinity.
The first step of the WPC will be the development of a standard for low consumption devices (5 watts or less) such as mobile phones, music and video players, or PC accessories. The second step is to work on a standard applicable to charging more demanding devices in terms of energy consumption.
They are part of the consortium ConvenientPower, Fulton Innovation, Logitech, National Semiconductor Corporation, Philips Electronics, Sanyo Electric, Shenzhen Sang Fei Consumer Communications and Texas Instruments.
