Abstract: The connector is something which has remainedunchanged for decades, unlike almost every other aspect of mobile and other computer hardwaredesign. The designers of the product often strugglewith the metal connectors which are very delicate to meet the present-dayrequirements like sleek structure and better appearance. Also, the EMI, ASD andRFI design issues have gotten worse due to additional requirements like highcommunication speeds. Even though, these problems were resolved some extent bythe advent of the wireless communications but new problems were added such ascost, antenna design complexity, major power consumption and customer frustrationwith slow wireless networks and managing passwords and pairing issues. WithKISS CONNECTIVITY, a solid- state connectivity solution, Keyssa has reinventedthe connectors and designed a new contactless connectivity to solve theproblems faced due to both wired and wireless communication for the purpose ofdata transfer between devices done through various connection techniques.
thispaper deals with dramatic improvement that KISS CONNECTIVITY offers over wiredand wireless communication networks and how it enables the OEM’S to easilydifferentiate their product offerings. INDEX TERMS: NFC TECHNOLOGY, USB 3.0,________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I.INTRODUCTIONThere are numerous advancements in datatransfer technology, but the Keyssa, California based startup company has takenit to a way ahead, it invented a new way to connect devices and transfer dataof about 6GB within few seconds with single touch from one smartphone to the othermore efficiently and the name given to this technology is KISS CONNECTIVITY.Keyssa aimed to create fastest channel for the data transfer among the deviceswithout any need of port, cables or any other kind of dependency that will slowthe process of transfer of the data.
II. METHODOLOGYThe KISS CONNECTIVITY, even though, is anew and advanced technology, works the same as NFC technology but it is waymore efficient than NFC. Suppose, we need to transfer data from one smartphoneto another and both devices have the predesigned KISS CONNECTIVITY chip inbuiltin them, then we have to touch the devices so that a contact is made betweenthe chips to transfer data with flash speed. The chips, embedded in bothdevices, create a magnetic channel to transfer data instantly. This technologyhas the potential to replace all the conventional ways of connecting deviceslike Bluetooth for data transmission. Currently, the devices have to be connectedwith the help of ports or cables or the internet to transfer the content butthe KISS CONNECTIVITY will reduce the burden from devices by eliminating theneed of ports once and for all by simple touch made by the devices.
Also, thespeed is greatly improved by providing 6GB per second which is something thateveryone wants today. The smartphone or device manufacturer only need to embed a single chipin their devices and their devices not become slimmer but also have the fastestmode of transferring the data. The Kiss Connectivity technology is not muchpopular yet and most of the people are unaware of this fastest mode of datatransfer. The only device which is currently using this technology is AcerAspire Switch 12 S tablet. Apart from this, there is also news that upcomingsmartphones may have the kiss connectivity inbuilt in them to transfer thedata. Fig.1.KEY FEATURES:Current Situation:Almost every component of mobile and the computing devices has seen many major innovationsover the past few decades.
Mechanical connectors have not. As the devicesdecrease in their size and data rates increase, the product designs continue tosuffer from inherent limitations posed by mechanical connectors:• The Reliability due to fragility ofmechanical connectors.• EMI/RFI emitted from the metal inside a connector as well as a cable,especially at higher data rates •The Unsightly holes resulting from theneed for a receptacle.
Wireless communications haveeliminated many issues related to connector design, but added new ones likecost, antenna design complexity, major power consumption and customerfrustration with slow, shared wireless networks, managing passwords and pairingissues. Solution:Keyssa has reinvented the connectorto meet the changing needs of both consumers and the manufacturers. Consumersbemoan the clutter of cables and the adapters required to connect devices andyearn for sleek, elegant devices which can withstand water, dirt and everydaywear and tear. Manufacturers are looking for ways to minimize the size ofdevices yet provide performance which the customers expect.
Kiss Connectors area new approach to connectors, based on solid-state technology and operating inthe super-fast 60Ghz spectrum. They sit under the surface of a device skin,immune to wear and tear, invisible and the need for cable is eliminated. Simply “kiss” two devicesby touching the devices, and data will be transferred at up to 6Gbps.
Kiss Connector Features:• Superior Speeds: Data can betransferred at up to 6Gbps – that’s a 1GB movie in as little as two seconds.• Protocol-agnostic: Supports standard protocols like USB 3.0, DisplayPortHBR2, and SATA II with no programming overhead or software drivers required.• Power-friendly: Power consumption with Kiss Connectors is orders of magnitudelower than wireless solutions and it co-exists with wireless power standards.• Secure: Kiss Connectors are a point-to-point connection – the data travelssecurely from one device to another.• Simple: User experience is native to real-life experience of just a kiss –place two devices in the nearest proximity close to one another.
They willconnect and disconnect automatically.. KISS CONNECTIVITY WHITE PAPERVS. WIRED COMMUNICATIONS Innovative DesignPossibilities The typicalmechanical connector needed to move the data from one device to another takesup significant space inside mobile and computing devices. They also need to beplaced at the outer edge of any device, in order to create a port or contactsurface. What sets Kiss Connectivity apart is the design innovation it enablesby allowing product designers to embed a Keyssa connector inside their product,on any surface, and not just along the outer edges.
By eliminating unsightlyholes in otherwise beautiful products, Kiss Connectivity ushers in a new age inproduct innovation.

Many of today’sconnector types are too large for modern
