Safety first: New technologies like wireless power must work safe. Users don’t have to watch and supervise a wireless power system. It has to run autonomous and self-monitored. Transmitters have to identify receivers, living objects and foreign object correctly. They have to manage the power transmission to fit the receiver capability and to protect living objects against injury and themselves against damage. These features are important, also for reasons of compliance and approval – especially for high power systems with high magnetic field strength and for wireless power systems for larger distances.
With the propagation of wireless powered devices the demand for higher power systems increases. Mass market applications like Smartphones and consumer electronics and consumer appliances will open new opportunities for wireless power technologies.
Circuit and systems design engineers need the latest information and know how in order to stay up to date in the rapidly progressing wireless power world.
The German technical journal Elektronik, supported by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), is therefore staging the 2. Wireless Power Congress on March 21-22, 2018 in Munich.
