Samsung and Qualcomm have announced a new partnership to produce wireless charging technology. The goal of the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) is to "promote global standardization of a wireless power transfer technology that offers spatial freedom, to develop product testing, certification and regulatory compliance processes, and to foster industry dialogue with regulators on wireless power policy development." Also involved in the group are Ever Win Industries, Gill Industries, Peiker Acustic, Powermat Technologies, and SK Telecom. The partnership plans to release a wireless charging standard that does not use multi-coil repeaters, which other systems rely on.
