Intro to Wireless Power Consortium

Keywords:Inductive coupling  Wireless Power Consortium 

Inductive coupling is the method by which efficient and versatile wireless power can be achieved. For ease of use and the benefit of both designers and consumers, the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) has developed a standard that creates interoperability between the device providing power (power transmitter, charging station) and the device receiving power (power receiver, portable device). Established in 2008, the WPC is a group of Asian, European, and American companies in diverse industries, including electronics manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers. The WPC standard defines the type of inductive coupling (coil configuration) and the communications protocol to be used for low-power wireless devices. Any device operating under this standard will be able to pair with any other WPC-compliant device. One key benefit to this approach is that it makes use of the coils for communications between the power transmitter and the power receiver.
