Ossia Announces Key Cota® Wireless Power Technological Advancements

Ossia increases wireless power delivery from its Cota transmitter to the receiver with a technological breakthrough and the ability to deliver power at a higher frequency

Jul. 26, 2018

BELLEVUE, Wash. – July 26, 2018 [PRNewswire] Ossia today announced that it has had a technological breakthrough in the Cota firmware of the Cota 2.4 GHz system. The wireless power technology company has increased the power received at the device, which is the equivalent of a 50% increase in power with only one transmitter.

Ossia also announced that the Cota Real Wireless Power system will soon be available operating in the 5.8 GHz ISM band, a higher frequency that will allow for more targeted delivery of higher power.


“The higher frequency Cota systems will provide new opportunities and expand the possible use cases for wireless power,” said Hatem Zeine, Founder and CTO. Some of the improvements that he noted are:

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 2.4GHz 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. 

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.

 “Ossia’s innovation opens many doors for Cota licensees,” said Mario Obeidat, Ossia’s CEO. “By linking Cota transmitters with the increased power delivery potential, businesses can provide more power to more devices at a distance within an even larger space. From what we’ve had tested, between 1 meter to 2 meters, we have averaged a 50% increase across the board.”

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, we are also working toward decreasing the costs of the entire system,”  said Obeidat. “By increasing power and decreasing costs we are innovating on new applications for Cota, such as Electronic Shelf Labels, and retrofitting current devices with smartphone sleeves. Ossia is advancing the entire wireless power ecosystem.”
