New Strategic Partnerships Accelerate Ossia's Momentum in Wireless Power Space
Ossia's latest strategic relationships will bring Cota® Real Wireless Power™ to multiple customers across the United States government, intelligence, and military agencies and support Ossia's go-to-market initiatives with the development of state-of-the-art energy management chip.
REDMOND, Wash., July 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ossia Inc. ("Ossia"), the leader in wireless power at a distance, today announced two new partnerships with organizations that will accelerate Ossia's momentum in getting wireless power to market.
The first partnership is with a strategic investor, IQT, that accelerates the development and delivery of new, innovative technologies to the U.S. defense and intelligence agencies. IQT was founded in 1999 to deliver emerging and cutting-edge technologies to enhance the national security of the United States.
The second is with a cutting-edge semiconductor company, e-peas, that is paving the way for energy harvesting technology to support wireless power at a distance. This company specializes in ultra-low power energy harvesting and processing solutions and Ossia has been collaborating with them for more than two years. e-peas partnered with Ossia for the development of state-of-the-art energy management chip.
One of e-peas' and Ossia's biggest collaborations so far involve working to integrate features in the new versatile buck-boost ambient energy manager AEM30330 for Cota technology to support Retail IoT applications (such as ESLs) and low power sensors.
This chip features ultra-low power start-up from 275mV input voltage and 3uW input power and supports both battery and battery-less (super-capacitor) applications. The Cota wireless solution using e-peas AEM30330 power management chip has a very small footprint and low Bill of Materials (BOM) costs, which allows Cota Power Receivers (Cota Rx) to be produced at scale and cost effectively.
Both partnerships enforce Ossia's dominate market leadership in the wireless power space with continued innovation in the development of wireless power technology and momentum of Ossia's growing ecosystem and market segments.
"Our collaboration with Ossia has allowed us to create cutting-edge features required for the Cota Real Wireless Power solution," states Geoffroy Gosset, e-peas' CEO. "We are very pleased of this collaboration; it shows that we have both the technology, innovation and, quality to provide industry-leading energy harvesting solutions for market like Retail IoT applications and low power sensors."
"Wireless power transmission has been of longstanding interest to the intelligence community and In-Q-Tel is excited to partner with Ossia to bring Cota technology to the forefront," states Steve Taub, Partner, Investments at IQT.
Ossia's flagship technology is Cota Real Wireless Power, a patented, award-winning technology that delivers power at a distance, without cables, charging pads, or line-of-sight. Cota technology can deliver meaningful power to many devices at the same time, in motion, at a considerable distance, safely and efficiently. All Cota-enabled devices can be activated, managed, and monitored via the Cota Cloud platform.
"We are very pleased to announce partnerships," said Doug Stovall, Chief Executive Officer of Ossia. "These partnerships enable Cota-powered products to continue their proliferation across Ossia's growing ecosystem. There is incredible demand and scale for wireless power in both the retail, IoT, consumer, military, and intelligence agencies. These partnerships will accelerate Ossia's mass deployment of Cota Real Wireless Power across the world."
