Working Groups

Organizing for Power
The PMA’s activities are currently organized according to the following working groups:

  •  

Inductive Power

The Inductive Power Working Group (IPG) is a technical committee that is responsible for the development and maintenance of technical specifications. The scope of this committee is wireless power technologies based on direct electromagnetic induction. The work done in this committee ensures robust, simple, and feasible technology that is ready to be implemented in a timely manner.

  •  

Resonant Power

The Resonance Power Working Group (RPG) is a technical committee that is responsible for the development and maintenance of technical specifications. The scope of this committee is wireless power technologies based on resonant electromagnetic induction. The work done in this committee ensures robust, simple, and feasible technology that maintains backward compatibility with the PMA inductive technology.

Open Network

The Network Working Group (NWG) is a technical committee responsible for the development and maintenance of network communication strategies and protocols for network related functionality of wireless charging spots. The scope of work done in this committee relates to provisioning, operation, administration, management, and user interaction of the network. The work ensures a viable framework to ensure continued growth of the wireless charging ecosystem.

Certification

The Certification Working Group (CWG) is a technical WG that is responsible for the establishment of world class certification program. In this role, the CWG develops certification programs which include the development and maintenance of test plans and implementation conformance specifications. This work ensures PMA certified devices are interoperable around the world.

Sustainability

The Sustainability Working Group (SWG) is an advisory committee supporting the technical working groups. In this role, the SWG focuses on requirements that permit wireless power technologies to fulfill the energy efficiency and environmental expectations of the public. This work ensures the longevity of the PMA standard for years to come.

Regulatory

The Regulatory Working Group (RWG) is an advisory committee supporting the technical working groups. In this role, the RWG focuses on global and regional requirements for radio frequency emissions and coexistence. This work ensures that PMA technology will remain compatible with other consumer and commercial based devices.
