Wireless power - users love it

Consumers say wireless charging is the must-have feature for smartphones and there is significant value of using wireless chargers wherever they live, work and travel.

A recent global survey conducted by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) revealed the significant value consumers place on wireless charging, indicating a high degree of satisfaction with available products and the near-term potential for faster consumer adoption.

Among consumers who have experience using wireless charging accessories, more than half own one accessory and an additional 35% own two:

This is a high volume electronics market now. According to IHS Markit the market grew 40% in 2016 and will exceed 1 billion receivers shipped per year by 2020.

Success in this market depends, not only on delivering power, but also on delivering it safely, efficiently, and without electro-magnetic interference with other products. And at low cost, of course.

This exhibition is a unique opportunity to see the latest components and products.

The Qi developers forum is an opportunity to learn how to design products that are safe and efficient, with minimal cost, using proven components.

The seminar is an opportunity to learn the latest technical development, presented by international experts, and to see the latest market research, presented by IHS,

The seminar will also discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the different wireless power technologies: magnetic induction, magnetic resonance, long distance (far field) transmission.
