PMA and A4WP Rebrand As the AirFuel Alliance
Nov 3, 2015, 3:14 PM by Eric M. Zeman
The Power Matters Alliance and Alliance for Wireless Power today announced plans to fully merge organizations under the AirFuel Alliance brand. The standard-bearers for wireless charging agreed to work together earlier this year, and today's rebranding is the final step in the process of creating a single consortium committed to improving the standards for and experience of wireless charging. The AirFuel Alliance claims to have 195 members, including a wide range of semiconductor and manufacturing partners. The A4WP and PMA brands will be retired after a short grace period. Moving forward, certified products will carry the AirFuel logo. AirFuel will continue to support inductive and resonant charging technologies and multimode systems that operate with both. The AirFuel Alliance is also working on future, non-magnetic charging technologies. The AirFuel Alliance competes still with the Qi standard for wireless charging.
