Wireless Power By Qualcomm
Qualcomm Japan Inc.
Director, Technical Standards.
This presentaiton outlines the latest Wireelss Power by Qualcomm. Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) was estalished by Qualcomm and many compnaies in May 2012. A4WP focuses on a new wireless power transfer technology that provides spatial freedom for charging of electrical devices in cars, on table tops and for multiple devices simultaneously. Benefits include a simpler transmitter resonator design, a simpler wireless power control system, and the ability to transfer power at greater distances. Looking at wireless electric vehicle charging (WEVC), Qualcomm developes Qualcomm Halo WEVC technology. Qualcomm announced a WEVC trial in London to commence in 2012. The objectives of the trial are to evaluate the commercial viability of wireless EV charging and gain user feedback on the use of WEVC-enabled vehicles.
Kazuhito Ishida joined Qualcomm Japan in 2001. Since then, he was engaged in domestic and international wireless communication technology standardizations including 3rd generation cellular systems, IEEE 802.11n, and IEEE 802.20. In 2006 and later, he participated in working groups of Broadband Wireless Access systems and 3.9-generation mobile communications systems at MIC, where he input many proposals. Then he supported standards developments of these technologies. In the recent years, he has actively been working in spectrum allocation discussions of various fields of wireless technologies from cellular systems to wireless charging. Currently, he is a Director, Technical Standards at Qualcomm Japan ; and is the chairperson of Standards Development Group of Wireless Power Transmission Working Group of the Broadband Wireless Forum.
