AirFuel Inductive is a wireless power transfer technology and specification based on the principles of magnetic inductance. This technology offers efficient and reliable power transfer, is endorsed by the world’s leading chipmakers, widely deployed by mobile phone manufacturers and operators, public charging infrastructure providers as well as other key industry partners.
MATURE - AirFuel inductive technology has been deployed in millions of devices and locations, including public venues and households. An established ecosystem of components and design providers is readily available to support a variety of products.
SUPERIOR TRANSFER EFFIECENCY - Efficiencies higher than 80% are achievable.
SCALABLE CHARGING - Able to charge different devices with different power requirements, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Supports the increasing demand for faster charging.
READY FOR THE REAL WORLD - Charging surfaces powered by AirFuel Inductive provide a reliable and secure charging solution. Any emissions are limited to the small gap between the transmitter and receiver. The charging surface allows for safe operation, preventing the heating of metallic objects placed within the charging field. The technology is designed to meet global regulatory standards.
PUBLIC INFRUSTRUCRE OPTIMIZED - AirFuel Inductive is widely deployed at various locations around the world, including select Starbucks, McDonald’s, and more. It enables support for transmitters below surface installations as well as identification and authentication of receivers required for assurance of device integrity.
In short, AirFuel Inductive provides the reliability, efficiency and low cost to bring wireless charging to the mass market.
The AirFuel Inductive specification closely matches real-world charging situations while minimizing the hurdles to creating compliant products. AirFuel Inductive is comprised of a specification for the wireless power transmitter, receiver, and host (the mobile device that includes the wireless receiver).
Products intended for AirFuel Inductive integration address several factors:
- Power dissipation and layout
- Integration of receiver and transmitter to device
Designers may specify and source their own discrete components to implement the requirements of the standard, or source one of the many available certified designs and components that support the AirFuel magnetic inductance specification.
As long as the components conform to the specification, they can utilize any topology. The AirFuel Inductive specification reserves only the interfaces and model of transmitter resonant circuitry to be used in the system.
