Fujitsu Planning Wireless Chargers For 2012

Fujitsu Laboratories has developed a new wireless charging technology, which will allow multiple electronic devices to be charged simultaneously without the need for multiple wires.

According to tech news site Cnet, the company plans to commercially release the technology in 2012.

The development comes in the form of a !magnetic field analysis simulator", which is designed to improve the range of the devices and assist in the development of mobile charging systems and receivers for mobile devices.

The company said in a statement to PC Pro: “These technologies represent the world's first practical magnetic resonance design simulator, which enables rapid and precise designs for transmitters and receivers according to the desired resonance requirements.”

"Manufacturers will be able to design charging systems in 1/150th of the time currently required."

The new breakthrough, which will be showcased during the2010 conference of the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE), in Osaka, Japan this week, is a part of Fujitsu's research into the magnetic resonance method.
