Keyssa Partners with Fresco Logic, Pcase, Phison Electronics and Sure-Fire Electrical Corporation to Add Blazing Fast File Transfer to Mobile Devices
Innovative new product gives consumers the ability to quickly transfer large files to and from devices
Campbell, Calif. – June 1, 2016 – Keyssa, a leader in high-speed, contactless connectivity, in collaboration with Fresco Logic, Pcase, Phison Electronics Corporation and Sure-Fire Electrical Corporation, today announced that the companies are making it easy for mobile users to quickly transfer large files from one device to another. The companies are designing an aftermarket product that enables blazing fast file transfers powered by Keyssa’s high-speed Kiss Connectivity. Additionally, the product concept expands the storage capabilities of devices such as smartphones, phablets, and tablets. Keyssa is showcasing a technology demonstration of this aftermarket product concept at Computex 2016 in Taiwan.
“Mobile devices have become an integral part of all our lives. They can do so many amazing things, yet at the same time, transferring local files, such as photos, videos and apps, is difficult and inefficient as many of these devices lack sufficient capabilities,” said Eric Almgren, CEO of Keyssa. “Together with Fresco Logic, Pcase, Sure-Fire and Phison, we are pleased to introduce a simple and cost-effective solution built on Keyssa’s Kiss Connectivity to instantly transfer huge amounts of data and video between devices with virtually no battery drain.”
At the heart of the new solution are Keyssa’s Kiss Connectors—tiny, low-power, solid-state connectors that can be embedded inside a product, and can securely move huge files between devices. With Kiss Connectivity, Keyssa is unleashing a new era that will change the way devices communicate and free engineers to design devices in entirely new ways.
Many of the leading mobile devices in the market today do not offer users the ability to rapidly transfer data or provide storage expansion options. In fact, there are literally hundreds of millions of mobile devices that fall into this category. As a result, consumers are unable to easily and efficiently transfer content or move large files, like videos or movies, between devices. The problem is made worse by the fact that the only solutions currently available for memory expansion require users to attach an external device to a USB port. Keyssa, Fresco Logic, Pcase, Phison and Sure-Fire are solving this problem once and for all.
“Fresco is delighted to participate in this innovative product concept, which will revolutionize the way consumers transfer and share files across devices,” said Jingfan Zhang, CEO of Fresco Logic. “Our technology allows Keyssa’s high-speed connectivity to connect to the massive number of legacy products in the market.”
“Aftermarket mobile device accessory products are in high demand from consumers who require a convenient way to move data on and off their phones and onto other devices,” said Robo Chen, founder and chairman of Pcase. “We are excited to work with Keyssa on delivering a much-needed solution for consumers.”
“We are pleased to contribute to this exciting new file transfer and data storage product concept,” said K.S. Pua, founder and CEO at Phison. “It is now finally possible for consumers to quickly and easily transfer massive files to and from their devices, without the speed and cost implications associated with other options such as USB, LTE and wireless.”
“As a leader in connectivity, Sure-Fire is always looking for innovative ways to transfer data from one device to another,” said C.P. Wang, president at Sure-Fire. “Kiss Connectivity offers a much simpler, more elegant way for devices to transfer files.”
Founded in 2009, Keyssa, Inc. developed its breakthrough Kiss Connectivity solution, based on a proprietary solid state connector that uses Extremely High Frequencies (EHF) to provide low-power, high-speed data transfer – securely and simply. With over 150 patent filings, Keyssa reinvented the connector. Managed by an experienced team of multidisciplinary technologists and standards experts, Keyssa’s investors include Alsop Louie, Dolby Family Ventures, Foxconn, SK hynix, Intel Capital, Nantworks, Neuberger Berman, and Samsung.
