Molex Collaborates with Ossia to Develop Antennas for Long Range Wireless Charging

Electronic solutions provider, Molex has announced a joint collaboration with wireless solutions pioneer, Ossia, to develop next generation antennas to enable long range wireless power delivery without cables, batteries, line-of-sight, or charging pads. The two companies will develop several new patch antenna designs which will service a variety of commercial applications.

Ossia calls their wireless power solution - CotaCota wireless power technology can power multiple devices in motion, without a line-of-sight, at a distance. All Cota-enabled devices can be activated, managed, and monitored via the Cota Cloud platform. Cota power receivers are small enough to be embedded into IoT devices, wearables, and many other electronics.

Through the collaboration, Molex will assist Ossia in designing antennas for Cota transmitters and receivers. As a premier supplier of components and solutions, Molex will bring expertise in materials, manufacturing, and product development. The companies aim to jointly develop and commercialize Cota antennas for purchase by manufacturers.

Alongside the joint antenna development project, Molex has followed on its initial investment in Ossia and increased their position as shareholders. It holds an Ossia Board Observer seat.
