However, battery-operated devices are quickly becoming untethered today with the rapid adoption of wireless charging technology. There are two major wireless charging technologies based on either magnetic induction or magnetic resonance. Products based on either or both of these technologies must meet stringent standards.</div><fieldset class="fieldgroup group-registration-form"><legend>Registration Form</legend> <div class="field-accela-form-length"> <span>Embedded Form Length:&nbsp;</span> 550pixels </div> </fieldset> <div class="field-display-promo-image"> <span>Display Promo Image:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://mwrf.com/webinar/testing-wireless-power-transfer-designs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Test & Measurement Test & Measurement - analyzers Webcasts Thu, 21 Apr 2016 18:06:00 +0000 43971 at http://mwrf.com DisplayPort 1.3 over Type-C: Taming the Gotchas! http://mwrf.com/webinar/displayport-13-over-type-c-taming-gotchas <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Keysight Technologies </div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://mwrf.com/site-files/mwrf.com/files/ED-MWRF_Keysight_53webinar_595x335.gif?1461262724" /> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-webinar-details"><legend>Webinar Details</legend> <div class="field-webinar-date"> <span>Date &amp; Time:&nbsp;</span> <span class="date-display-single">Tuesday, May 3, 2016 - <span class="date-display-start">13:00</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">14:00</span></span> </div> <div class="field-webinar-type"> <span>Event Type:&nbsp;</span> Live Webinar </div> <div class="field-webinar-speakers"> <span>Speakers:&nbsp;</span> <table border="0" width="400"> <tbody> <tr> <td width="105"><img height="100" src="http://electronicdesign.com/site-files/electronicdesign.com/files/uploads/2015/07/ED_Fetz.jpg" style="padding-bottom:10px;" /></td> <td width="295"> <p><strong>Brian Fetz</strong><br /> Marketing Manager<br /> <strong>Keysight Technologies, Inc.</strong></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> </fieldset> <div class="node-body webinar-body">VESA released the first type C connector alternate mode specification shortly after the USB-IF released its power delivery and type C specifications, by tailoring the DP1.3 specification to the new connector.
