Following the merger announcement earlier this year by the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) and Power Matters Alliance (PMA), the two organisations have rebranded under the AirFuel Alliance banner. The combined body has 195 members.
“AirFuel technology is the next step in fast tracking the commercialisation of wirelessly charged products,” said Alliance president Ron Resnick. “The introduction of AirFuel is a clear step in the right direction for true wireless charging.”
After a suitable grace period, the brands associated with A4WP and PMA will be retired and, from that point, certified products will carry the AirFuel name and logo.
AirFuel Alliance continues to support the use of multimode systems that operate with both versions of the standard, but notes its uncoupled working group is developing technologies that go beyond the use of magnetics.
