Hearing health is an important part of people’s lives, and those who wear prescriptive hearing aids rely on smart audio algorithms- like noise reduction or environmental classification-to improve their listening experience and quality of life. For algorithm developers, maintaining a high standard of development is critical to ensuring that hearing aid manufacturers can rely on our solutions to bring innovative and clinically-ready products to market.
Wireless power technology is actually very old technology, but optimizing it for modern day electronics and enhancing efficiencies of power transfer is a challenge. There are actually many products now in the market offering wireless charging; according to IHS, 144M wireless charging enabled devices were shipped in 2015. The other side of the wireless charging function is the infrastructure or the transmitters which are getting deployed in the market in many applications such as furniture, automotive, and many consumer products. The adoption of this technology in the market depends on both having the receivers in the portable electronics as well as available transmitters everywhere we go. The good news is that everyone involved in this technology is excited about this and we will see more products being launched going into 2017 with wireless charging as a standard, built-in function.
