Technological Breakthrough in 2.4 GHz Wireless Power Solutions Enables Higher Power Transmission

Ossia, in a technological breakthrough, has achieved a 50% power increase using a 2.4 GHz wireless power system. The Cota transmitter delivers real wireless power without plugs, wires, or charging pads. A single transmitter can power multiple devices in motion, without a line of sight, and at a distance. Cota is inherently safe and does not interfere with other wireless technologies. All Cota-enabled devices can be activated, managed, and monitored via the Cota Cloud platform. The current Cota 2.4 GHz prototype in the form factor of a Cota Tile, can currently deliver wireless power over 10 meters or 30 feet with a single transmitter and 15 meters or 50 feet with only two.

In addition to working on increasing power delivery over distance, the company is also working toward decreasing the costs of the entire system. By increasing power and decreasing costs it is innovating on new applications for Cota, such as Electronic Shelf Labels, and retrofitting current devices with smartphone sleeves.

The company also announced the availability of the Cota Real Wireless Power System operating at 5.8 GHz in the ISM band, a higher frequency that will allow for targeted delivery of higher power.

Key Facts & Features of the Cota 5.8 GHz Wireless Power System

  • Transmitter Size Flexibility: The higher frequency increases the number of antennas possible on a same-size Cota transmitter, which increases the amount of power that can be delivered to a Cota-enabled receiver; conversely, manufacturers can shrink the size of the transmitter to deliver the equivalent power of the 2.4 GHz Cota system.
  • Targeted Wireless Power: The higher frequency increases the focus of the power signal, which increases the amount of power delivered to a Cota receiver, and ensures more energy is going where it is needed. This is due to the shorter wavelength of the higher frequency system.
  • Receiver Size: Manufacturers can now decrease the size of the Cota receiver, which enables them to create receivers to fit currently available battery sizes even smaller than the AA battery. This is also due to the shorter wavelength of the higher frequency signal.
