Intel has become the latest member to join the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP), a consortium working to establish a new wireless charging standard. The chipmaker has joined the A4WP’s board of directors.

The A4WP has more than 40 members, including Samsung, Qualcomm, Broadcom, and Integrated Device Technology (IDT) amongst others.

A4WP technology, which uses near-field magnetic resonance technology, is capable of enabling the simultaneous charging of multiple devices and the flexible positioning of devices to be charged in multiple dimensions and at power levels and charging times that meet consumer expectations.

"Intel believes the A4WP specification, particularly the use of near-field magnetic resonance technology, can provide a compelling consumer experience and enable new usage models that make device charging almost automatic," said Navin Shenoy, vice president, PC client group and general manager, mobile client platform division at Intel. "In joining A4WP, we look forward to working alongside other member companies and contributing to standards that help fuel an ecosystem of innovative solutions capable of simultaneously charging a range of devices, from low-power accessories to smartphones, tablets and ultrabooks."

"We welcome Intel's contribution and collaboration to create and deliver new capabilities enabled by the next-generation wireless power transfer (WPT) technology based on the A4WP technical and interoperability specifications," said Kamil A. Grajski, A4WP president and board chair.
