Akoustis Technologies has received its first purchase order from a first-tier smartphone manufacturer, which the company says is one of the top five global manufacturers. The order calls for the development of two high frequency BAW filters, covering high band LTE and 5 GHz Wi-Fi.
Mobile filter start-up Akoustis Technologies completed the acquisition of STC-MEMS, a semiconductor wafer manufacturing operation and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) business in Canandaigua, New York. The acquisition enables Akoustis to internally manufacture its single-crystal BAW filters.
BAW filter start-up Akoustis Technologies, Inc. will acquire STC-MEMS, a semiconductor wafer manufacturing operation and MEMS business located in Canandaigua, New York. The acquisition will enable Akoustis to manufacture its single crystal BAW RF filters internally, with “substantial capacity and control of its wafer supply chain.”
Akoustis Technologies Inc., a manufacturer of innovative BulkONE™ bulk acoustic wave (BAW) high-band RF filters for mobile wireless, announced today a significant performance improvement in its patented single-crystal BAW technology, which the Company believes satisfies resonator requirements to produce commercial, high-band RF filters, including 4G/LTE, Wi-Fi, emerging 5G and other wireless applications.
Akoustis Technologies, Inc. announced that Rohan Houlden has joined the company as VP of engineering. In this role, he will manage the development and qualification of high band RF BAW filter products.
Akoustis Technologies, a pre-revenue start-up pursuing single crystal bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filters for mobile devices, reported that the company has fabricated a single crystal BAW filter for the 2.7 GHz band and said this is the world's first single crystal BAW filter. Akoustis claims their single crystal piezoelectric material will provide better performance than current BAW filters.
