"Inductive is embraced by companies such as Nokia, Samsung, LG, and Verizon, while resonance is supported by those including AT&T, Google, Proctor, and TI"...

I do not see Apple's name in the list here. I am sure they are also working on evolving wireless charging for their gadgets. What kind of wireless charging technology they are into?

Anyone heard of any other hybrid chips that support resonant and inductive approaches?

Is everyone going to hybrid chips? Does it make sense?

700 million wireless charging devices by 2018! That is in fact a huge number, and an indication of just how much opportunity there is in this particular segment.

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.
