Texas Instruments Joins Alliance for Wireless Power
Organized in April, A4WP is a group of electronics companies, including Samsung, Qualcomm and others, focused on advancing the field of wireless power by delivering a specification that permits spatial freedom. The group officially released its A4WP specification, which is based on loosely coupled magnetic resonance technology, to simultaneously charge smartphones and other portable electronics with different power requirements.
In other words, TI now has its toes in two wireless power groups. Perhaps that's the issue here; too many groups trying to accomplish the same general thing. At any case, it'll be interesting to see what TI brings to this table, and if we'll see any of it in consumer form at CES 2013.
