SAN FRANCISCO – WiTricity has inked a licensing agreement with Intel to integrate Rezence near-field wireless charging into Intel chips and computing products.
Intel and WiTricity are both board members of the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP), which published the Rezence spec.
“We have overwhelming feedback from end users that they are frustrated with dealing with all the different wires and power adapters for their devices – phones, tablets and PCs.” said Sanjay Vora, Intel’s user experience general manager/VP. “At Intel, we have a vision to eliminate all wires from all of our platforms. This agreement is a major step in the right direction enabling our companies to work together to deliver the next generation of devices, that eliminate the need for power cords.”
Alex Gruzen, WiTricity CEO, said his company is “excited about the possibilities created through our agreement with Intel, a leader in mobile computing for both consumers and businesses. We look forward to helping Intel enable the industry to create a new generation of wirelessly powered devices.”
