Wireless Power KitWireless Power and contactless charging technology has become a reality, with millions of mobile phone devices that implement this system today.  Yet, this technology is still in its early phases of adoption across a wide range of new applications including wearable products and industrial / medical applications.  We will review the basics of how this technology operates, and briefly compare the three common standards (WPC, PMA, and A4WP) being considered for the broad market.  Some of the key system considerations like power capability, efficiency, thermal issues, and magnetics design will be reviewed, with some basic guidelines on how to get started with a wireless power system design.
