Do we know what the efficiencies are with wireless charging ? I know there are losses in everything, but seems like in this age of making things cleaner and more efficient, wireless charging is just going to waste more electricity for a small trade off in convenience?

The photo on the cover of this story is of an ancient NON wireless charging mat that uses contacts on the custom battery cover of those Motorola RAZRs to make contact with those metal strips on the mat below. Either way, A4WP is the way to go from my limited understanding and let's hope that AAPL adopts it too so we can be done with all their expensive accessories and charge our iDevices on the same pads as our Androids. Hopefully MS/Nokia will adopt A4WP too for future Lumias.

A4WP includes a large number of Taiwanese players, TI, Sandiak, NXP and BRCM.the latecomeers - Intel, QCOM. How many of these guys are serious about the A4WP standard remains to be seen. Perhaps Samsung will eventually come up with their own.

Competing wireless charging systems and the need to implement the wireless system on the device side (receiver) and power system side (outlet) suggest that we have a long way to go. If the devices require an external adapter "coil" as the wireless receiver, then the extra baggage doesn't really do much good. It might as well be a supplemental battery with a standard outlet cord. It seems like we still have a long way to go. I fear that we are moving towards vendor specific wireless charging protocols and the prospect of an array of wireless charging stations at home - just as we have an array of wired charging stations at home now.

I would think that if anyone can get their wireless charging system into laptops, tablets, and readers then the market could be almost ready. It takes a lot of infrastructure to make a standard successful. If one system is cheaper to implement or better at charging (aka faster) then that could be a key differentiator. So far, I have not seen any compelling systems proposed. 22 Watts delivered is not bad for a cell phone but what about a laptop or tablet? I wonder if this system can deliver more say 100W or 150W?

Hey, there's always competition. Get over it. The discussion I'd like to hear is which is any of these technologies has a shot at a broad market and why.

Competition is key to technological advancement. Competing standards exist because different companies how different ideas about how wireless charging should be done. The market will ultimately determine which standard will last. In my opinion, A4WP is the strongest contender thanks to their use of magnetic resonance for power transfer. WPC and the lesser-known PMA are currently focused on inductive charging, which as mentioned in the article, has significant disadvantages in comparison. In addition to having the better technology, A4WP also has the backing of three very big names: Qualcomm, Intel, and Samsung. Competition is good. It weeds out the inferior products and standards.

Competing incompatible standards isn't going to help wireless power reach critical mass very soon.

What wireless power technology are you planning to use--if any--and why or why not?

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
