That is exactly my concern, too. As p_g suspects, Qualcomm "wants to bring both technologies on same bench and see how they can merge the idea's," that may be the case. But that still doesn't get us any closer to the actual adoption of either wireless charging format.

My understanding, from recent discussions with Dialog Semiconductor CEO Jalal Bagherli, is that receive side design for wireless charging is pretty simple.

This is a reason Dialog has not pursued that market to date -- complex ICs not really required.

However the send side that will drive the charging mat is more complex.

I think it may be the case that a number of phones start getting fitted with Qi and A4WP receive technology without us even knowing....the issue is when will the interoperability, certification and branding come?

I think Qualcomm wants to bring both technologies on same bench and see how they can merge the idea's. Probably they dont feel any one approach is clear winner so they want to keep both and hance mixed messaging..

That's a good question. Qualcomm's comments supplied to EE Times' Peter Clarke suggests that Qualcomm is thinking bigger so that it can help the industry with a standard. And yet, it doesn't look like Qualcomm is totally giving up with its own allinace for A4WP...sort of a mixed msg...?

Backward compatibility?

Just wondering whether this wireless charging technology will be back ward compatible to the current smart phones, tablets and so on . Or will they require some kind of wireless adapters to be fitted into their charging sockets?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
