The new technology can provide up to 15W of power according to Freescale, which is up from the 5W found on current wireless charging technologies. The company adds: "This targeted solution includes two 15 W ICs: the WPR1516 receiver chip and accompanying MWCT1012 transmitter chip. Developers can get to production quickly by using available corresponding firmware libraries, which provide the core functionality required to implement state-of-the-art wireless charging systems. The solution also includes an advanced application programming interface that can be utilized to modify or adjust library functionality, allowing for the addition of custom application code and a highly tailored and differentiated end-product".

Freescale's 15W wireless charging solution will be made available in Q1 2015, but it will be up to device manufacturers whether they support Freescale solutions in their upcoming products.
