By CIOReview | Thursday, January 7, 2016

BELLEVUE, WA: Ossia, architect of the Cota wireless power technology, recently publicized the strategic investment by Molex, which aims at developing new products and expansion in market access.
Recently, Ossia displays Cota's wireless power technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 that provides a consumer-ready option to charge devices without plugging them to a charging pad. It is based on the transmission of power using 2.4-gigahertz radio waves. Cota uses thousands of tiny antennas to deliver substantial amounts of power directly to the embedded receiving antennas in devices located up to 10 meters away.
Ossia helps customers to develop next-generation products and technologies, "We are very excited about the direct investment from Molex as well as the opportunity for a valuable strategic relationship," says Rasha Qamheyeh, Director of Business Development, Ossia. The investment demonstrates Molex’s continued support for the development of innovative, high-performance solutions which directly addresses global industry demand.  
Ossia also allies with XPNDBLS to embed Cota wireless power technology in XPNDBLS’s modular mobile device cases. As a result of this collaboration, consumers can retrofit existing devices, charge new wireless devices, or store energy in an external battery for later use.
XPNDBLS features a modular platform and allows third-party hardware developers to integrate their unique technologies with mobile phones and tablets, and take advantage of the built-in interface and scalability. Unlike the traditional battery-charging cases, it uniquely provides interchangeable electronics to be useful across a range of devices. "With our modular design approach, we're an ideal partner for third-party developers like Ossia who want to expand the market for their innovative products," said Kero Basilious, Founder, XPNDBLS.
