Message Text: The Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) is introducing a secondary, higher-powered initiative focusing on wirelessly charging electronic products from 20 to 50 watts, like Ultrabooks, laptops, and mid-powered appliances.

Coinciding with the latest standard, Dell has joined the A4WP, becoming the first major PC original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to join a wireless power standards organization.

Dell joins an existing A4WP membership that has grown to over 80 companies including board members Broadcom, Gill Electronics, IDT, Intel, Qualcomm, Samsung, SEMCO, and WiTricity in addition to other industry leaders such as Fujitsu, Haier, HTC, LG, Panasonic, and SanDisk.

The A4WP is standardizing wireless power transfer using near-field magnetic resonance technology, called Rezence. Rezence is capable of charging multiple devices simultaneously and without the need to dock the device.

"The A4WP continues to make progress on its mission to cut the power cord for all mobile devices," said Sanjay Vora, GM for Strategic Planning of Intel's PC Client Group. "Extending the Rezence specification to include higher-power, more capable devices like Ultrabooks and 2 in 1's is a necessary evolution that will help to accelerate charging station installations and bring a truly enjoyable 'No Wires' user experience to more users. We are excited to have Dell joining the Alliance and help expand the specification."

The A4WP's technical specification leverages broadly adopted wireless technologies (e.g. Bluetooth Smart), which simplifies development and manufacturing. For industrial designers, the A4WP specification utilizes a near-field magnetic resonance technology that provides flexibility for wireless charging solutions to be installed into all types of products and surfaces (cars, furniture, etc.). Finally, for consumers, the A4WP's Rezence brand indicates interoperability between devices and chargers and signifies the ability to support simultaneous charging of multiple devices with differing power requirements. Users can simply "drop & go" their devices onto a charging surface without the hassle of accurate positioning or alignment.
