This is a chip that Nicola Tesla would´ve loved. He wanted to distribute energy through air. Wirelessly. Perhaps he was the first "Open source" advocate. Aren´t we seeing too much wireless lately? Anyone saw Jhony Mnemonic? Lucky for the business that RF radiation hasn´t been proved to harm our bodies.

You can very easily integrate a couple of IC´s into a product. One for Bluetooth and one for the wireless power management. Perhaps integrating both under a single chip would result in noise problems.

Why not just modulate data onto the AC?

What is the range over which such wireless transfer can happen without excessive power loss to the environment? and what happens when there is intermittent interference between the charged and the charging stations?

This is revolutionary chip, just wondering if this is first of kind chip or do we have this chip available already from other manufacturers ?

This IC should also include BlueTooth functionality to communicates with device being charged. This way it can be made more efficient and also helps consumer of different status.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
