7/29、Qualcomm、BRUSA Elektronik AG社と電気自動車向けワイヤレス給電に関わるパテントライセンス契約を締結したことを発表

拙著「クアルコムの次世代プラットフォーム戦略」などのフォローとして、クアルコムから2015/07/30にいただいたお知らせを掲載します。

7月29日、QualcommはBRUSA Elektronik AG社と電気自動車向けワイヤレス給電に関わるパテントライセンス契約を締結したことを発表しました。

以下抜粋引用です。

Qualcommは7月29日(米国時間)、Qualcomm とパワーエレクトロニクスシステムのオートモーティブ・ティア1・サプライヤーであるBRUSA Elektronik AG社(http://www.brusa.eu/en/home.html )が、電気自動車(プラグインハイブリッド車含む)向けワイヤレス給電に関わるパテントライセンス契約を締結したことを発表しました。

- Qualcomm とBRUSA社 は、電気自動車(プラグインハイブリッド車含む)向けワイヤレス給電に関わるパテントライセンス契約を締結しました。

- BRUSA社はプラグインハイブリッド車及び電気自動車用ワイヤレス給電システムを実用化するためのQualcomm Halo特許を使用し、いくつかの主要な自動車メーカーと実用に向け取り組んでいきいます。

- BRUSA社はワイヤレスで安全且つ高効率に自動車に電力伝送できる” Inductive Charging System (ICS)“ ワイヤレス給電システムのパイオニアで、FRAMERテクノロジーと呼ばれるコイル形状(長方形状コイルで非接触給電が可能)を開発しています。

- 自動車メーカーやユーザーの要求を満たす電気自動車用ワイヤレス給電システムを製作するには、円形コイルを使用する場合にも、Qualcomm Haloテクノロジーを利用することが重要となります。

Qualcomm and BRUSA Sign Commercial Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging License Agreement
Automotive Tier 1 power electronics supplier licenses Qualcomm Halo? Patent Portfolio

SAN DIEGO 29 July, 2015 Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) and BRUSA Elektronik AG today announced that they have entered into a Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging (WEVC) patent license agreement. BRUSA, an automotive Tier 1 power electronics supplier, has licensed Qualcomm Halo patented inventions to commercialize WEVC systems for Plug-In Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (EVs). Under the terms of the agreement, Qualcomm granted to BRUSA a royalty-bearing patent license to develop, make and supply WEVC systems for certain automobile manufacturers.

Automobile manufacturers around the world have spotted the huge potential of wireless charging as it is user friendly. BRUSA Elektronik AG has been pioneering technology in this area with its “ICS” wireless charging system which can transfer power to vehicles safely and at high efficiency, eliminating the need for charging cables currently required by EVs. “We are excited about our license agreement with BRUSA; it expands and diversifies the Qualcomm Halo supplier network, giving automobile manufacturers another trusted source of our advanced inventions,” said Steve Pazol, vice-president & general manager wireless charging, Qualcomm Incorporated. “Qualcomm Halo licensees can bring to market highly efficient, fit-for-purpose, WEVC systems, which allow convenient charging and improve the EV driver’s user experience.” We believe access to Qualcomm Halo? technology is important to building WEVC systems that meet the needs of automotive OEMs and their end-customers, including WEVC systems incorporating magnetics based on a circular coil structure”.

BRUSA has developed its own coil geometry called FRAMER technology. The coil is rectangular and enables inductive charging of electric vehicles with the integration of power electronics both in the vehicle and in the base plate enabling a one box system. As a leader in the development of highly efficient power electronics for electric mobility BRUSA will work with certain major automotive manufacturers to commercialize its wireless charging system including specific aspects of the Qualcomm Halo inventions. Josef Brusa, CEO of BRUSA Elektronik AG is confident: “Wireless charging will win, it will give e-mobility a big boost, it will set new, sustainable technology apart from old gasoline-based technology. We are determined to make wireless charging a reality. We already offer technically sound and commercially viable systems to the market and we are excited about the potential of wireless charging.” BRUSA is currently working on WEVC systems with several leading automakers with firm plans to introduce wireless charging in their automobiles in the near future.
