Largest European Chip-Maker Partners For Wireless Charging

Story :

Europe's largest semiconductor chip maker, ST Microelectronics (ST), has partnered with Massachusetts-based WiTricity to develop integrated circuits for wireless power transfer.

WiTricity pointed to the deal as indicative of how chip makers are taking note of wireless charging as a new source of revenue while helping roll out the technology across products.

Virtually all major chip makers have joined wireless charging development consortia, such as the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP), the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and the Wireless Power Alliance (WPA). Last year, the A4WP and PMA joined forces to form the AirFuel Alliance.

ST's semiconductor offerings would include designs that comply with the AirFuel magnetic resonance specification (for charging over slight distances) as well as multi-mode solutions that incorporate both resonant and inductive charging (contact charging).
