The chipmaker joins Qualcomm and Samsung by signing up for the Alliance for Wireless Power's technology, which uses near-field magnetic resonance to top up batteries in phones, tablets, or laptops.
A universal wireless-charging standard is looking like more of a possibility as two major rivals -- A4WP and PMA -- have agreed to work together.
The Alliance for Wireless Power is extending its reach from mobile devices to laptops, too. It's not just an idea, either: Dell has joined the effort.
Rezence, which has actually been around for a while, is being positioned as the next-generation wireless charging standard.
In the complex war over standards for wireless charging, Qualcomm has emerged as a quasi-neutral party. CNET talks to the company about the future of the technology.
At Intel's CES keynote, a smart wireless charging bowl flashed across the screen. Here's what we know (and what we don't).
Samsung said it would invest in a technology championed by the Wireless Power Consortium, while Qualcomm said it would join both the WPC and rival Power Matters Alliance.
Taller magnetic fields mean you'll be able to drop your phone directly onto your counter, desk, or car console to get more juice.
Which wireless charging standard will emerge the winner? One side now appears to have momentum thanks to backing from AT&T.
In an in-depth interview, Henry Samueli predicts a lot more bits in our future with multigigabit Wi-Fi, LTE, and home broadband. Moore's Law is a tougher challenge, but Broadcom plans high-end CPUs, too.
