Sounds like Intel may have canned a proprietary technology it pursued once upon a time. See http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4417200/Q-comm-plugs-wireless-charging-into-cars--desks

I'm curious about this statement: "A4WP, which specifies the use of magnetic resonance technology, is capable of simultaneous charging of multiples devices and the flexible positioning of devices and a charging platter." How is this different than what WPC is doing?

@FrankEory A4WP is making the distinction between direct induction and magnetic resonant induction where the two coils are tuned to resonate at a set frequency. I understand this has benefits for efficiency of energy transfer.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
