mobile and computing devices, such as smartphones.
With the increasing data usage, it becomes a challenge to make mechanicalconnectors in an acceptable form factor and still maintain the signalintegrity. Kiss Connectivity reinvents the connector by creating a tinysolid-state coffee bean-sized connector which can be embedded anywhere alongthe surface of the device. Kiss Connectivity is no longer visible as theconnection is made by an Extremely High Frequency (EHF) signal over a veryshort distance. Mechanical Reliability KissConnectivity is a solid-state solution which eliminates the metal contactswhich are prone to wear-and-tear from repeated consumers’ physical connectingand disconnecting traditional connectors. Kiss Connectivity does not requirephysical interconnection to transfer data, which results in near-zero wear,near-zero potential for corrosion, and near-zero sensitivity to vibration.Unlike a metal connector with precise pin to pin alignment, Kiss Connectivity need not be perfectly aligned, or insertedcarefully in order to make a connection.Radio Frequency Interference In an attemptto meet the ever-increasing market demand to move more data more quickly, somesmartphone manufacturers have incorporated USB 3.
0 in their products. However,this protocol is often disabled due to the potential interference between USB3.0 and the 802.11 Wi-Fi standard. The USB 3.0 connector radiates within the802.
11 frequency band. By replacing the metal USB connector with a contactlessinterface, Kiss Connectivity removes this potential interference while enablingfull USB 3.0 protocol speeds to be achieved. ESD Considerations Due to thecontactless nature of the Kiss Connectivity, connection has inherently highisolation properties and potential electrostatic discharge (ESD) issues aremitigated due to the elimination of exposed pins in metal connectors. Inaddition, Kiss Connectivity can be electrically isolated in plastic or othernon-conductive materials to further mitigate ESD.
Cost Efficient Metalconnectors inherently have the extra fabrication and manufacturing costs. Forexample, physical limitations of placing connectors along the outer edges of adevice requires machining chassis with tight tolerance for connector cutouts. KISS CONNECTIVITY WHITE PAPERVS. WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONSWireless communications have many shortcomings, itincludes limited data security, low data rates, unreliable connections, sharedbandwidth amongst the users, difficultsetup, high power and potential high cost of transferring data over a wirelessnetwork. Kiss Connectivity addresses each of these shortcomings, by enabling asimple, private, secure, and a high -performance data connection between twodevices. With Kiss Connectivity, users can bypass the cellular networks forhighspeed, localized data transfers that can be up to 95% faster than thewireless networks.
Secure Point-to-Point Data Connection Typicalwireless networks provide public, multi-point connections that are notnecessarily the most secure. Kiss Connectivity provides a private point-to-pointconnection. Because of the low radiated power and limited range of transmission, the links are nearly impossibleto tap. This ensures secure and reliable high-speed data transfers between apair of devices in close proximity.
Ease of Use KissConnectivity allows users to transfer data much more quickly and easily than thewireless networks. This does not require any setup in order to perform the datatransfer. Simply place two devices together, and initiate the transfer ofselected data.
Kiss Connectivity, using the USB 3.0 protocol, can transfer a 1GByte movie in 2 seconds. Power Reduction KissConnectivity facilitates high-speed data transfers between the devices. Since overalldata transmission time is reduced dramaticallyversus existing technologies, which reduces battery consumption. KissConnectivity data transfers can occur nearly instantaneously while using aminimal amount of energy.Cost of Data Transfer
