Apple second-generation AirPods
Apple's second-generation AirPods feature the H1 chip which delivers faster connect times, more talk time and the convenience of hands-free "Hey Siri." AirPods come with either a standard charging case or a wireless charging case. The H1 chip features custom audio architecture to create an audio experience and improved synchronization. The H1 allows AirPods to deliver up to 50% more talk time compared to first-generation AirPods. The standard charging case and the wireless charging case both hold additional charges for more than 24 hours of total listening time. The wireless charging case is designed to offer the freedom of wireless charging with Qi-compatible charging solutions. An LED light indicator located on the front of the case shows the charge status. Existing AirPods customers can purchase the standalone wireless charging case.

Alfamation tester for automotive wireless chargers
Alfamation has announced a new test system for manufacturing quality control of in-car wireless chargers. The new tester supports different charging standards, including Qi, PMA, as well as Near Field Communications (NFC). Due to its architecture, the new in-line tester can perform parallel, or multi-site, functional test of up to four devices at the same time, according to the company. This enables it to have a high throughput as required for automotive mass production, ensuring productivity is high and costs are minimized. The system is a standardized platform, thus simplifying maintenance. Wireless charging will soon be present in nearly all smartphones, so cars will have to support it. This means that the automotive industry will need to thoroughly test chargers integrated into vehicles. Car manufacturers will need to support multiple standards used for wireless charging, and to handle the complexities of testing all variants quickly, reliably and cost-effectively. Additionally, not just the actual power transfer must be tested. Nowadays, chargers and batteries are smart and they communicate with each other to optimize charging, so this communication protocol must also be tested.
