When it comes to charging the gadgets we all live with on a daily basis, none of us really want to mess with wires. There are several chargers on the market today that will charge smartphones using magnetic induction technology, but those chargers require the device to physically sit on the charger plate.




Fujitsu is talking up new tech that it is working on to allow the easy design of chargers that can recharge multiple devices at the same time without having to have a specific position to the power transmitter. The new tech was developed at Fujitsu Laboratories and the intention is to offer a dev kit of sorts to speed getting wireless charging products onto the market.


The new tech includes a magnetic field analysis simulator that analyzes the coil model and a specialized circuit simulator that analyzes resonance conditions. The tech allows the designer to design a charger that can recharge multiple transmitters using different coil sizes. The tech also allows the chage system to automatically match the requirements of the device being charged. Fujitsu hopes to have the tech on the market by 2012.
