@Jessica, this surprised me to. Because of the long lifetimes of automotive purchases, I've always found automotive makers to wait until something was proven and on a path to full-on acceptance.

But then again, maybe this charging feature is not a big space/cost issue, and they can offer it as a value add now and leave it off their marketing in the future if it flops.

That's likely what they would do, since GM didn't modify the vehicles much to add in wireless charging.

True. I think something has changed about the automotive industry over the past few years. As they strive to make their vehicles more smartphone savvy, they seem to be going out of their way to push all the marketing talking points buttons. It pains me to see the doing so -- because, um, aren't there more important problems to solve?

No one can deny that aumobile and smartphone sectors are going to become more connected in days to come. Your car and your smartphone becomes inseparable from you. It can do a lot when driving interstate. Soon healthcare industry must also merge in with these two. Placement of smartphone in the car should also be comfortable for the driver without disturbing his driving much.

Maybe GM should stick to desiging keyswitches.  When they get that one done right then they can think about stupid ideas like inductive charging of i-phones.

They need to concentrate on not killing people first.

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.
