Microsoft Joins Power Matters Alliance

Posted by at 10:43 am on April 22, 2014

The Power Matters Alliance today welcomed Microsoft as its newest member. Microsoft will join the PMA in its goal of developing interoperable wireless charging products.

By joining the PMA, Microsoft also now has access to its specifications for wireless charging technology. This is significant because Microsoft will complete its purchase of Nokia’s handset business later this week and use that technology in future products.

The PMA joined forces with the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) earlier this year, bringing together two of the three competing standards for wireless charging. The PMA claims to have the largest installed base of wireless chargers and accessories, though many of today’s smartphones, including those sold by Verizon Wireless, support the competing Qi standard.
