CES 2018 – The Year of Qi Wireless Power

Viktor Löfgren

With the launch of Apple's new iPhones enabled with Qi wireless power and the addition of Powermat to the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), wireless charging is making news at CES in a big way.

More companies than ever are releasing new products in a wide variety of form factors and styles. There's a huge wave of Qi wireless chargers, and we're working with the WPC to introduce the latest advances in the application of wireless power for the kitchen.

If you’re at CES, stop by the WPC booth at the South Hall Connector near the entrance of South Hall 3, Upper Level to see everything in action!

WPC meeting in San Francisco

Viktor Löfgren

nok9 joined over 300 members of the Wireless Power Consortium in San Francisco for the Qi Developer Conference and Wireless Power Tradeshow hosted by Apple. Our team participated in the Plugfest and IOP sessions, working with other industry leaders on the evolving Qi product design, testing, safety, regulatory and certification guidelines.
 
The new Qi reference receiver (RERX) and RFID protection upgrade to CATS II were also demonstrated for the first time at the conference.
 
The RERX was presented as the reference validation receiver to be used when testing EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) and EMI (electromagnetic interference). This is a critical component on the path toward compatibility, as it helps to ensure a seamless user experience across devices from different manufacturers using the Qi standard.
 
The RFID protection upgrade provides enhanced capabilities for the safety of credit cards and other devices using near field communications (NFC) or RFID chips as they come between a Qi transmitter and a device.
