Presented by: Dave Aichele, EVP Business Development and Kamran Cheema, Chief Product Officer, Akoustis

In the realm of RF technology, the demand for higher data rates and expanded bandwidth continues to escalate, driving the need for advanced solutions capable of operating at higher frequencies. Akoustis is at the forefront of this evolution, introducing cutting-edge XP3F technologies designed to address these critical needs. Join us for Akoustis' webinar as we focus on XBAW® technology spanning from 2 to 8 GHz and the XP3F technology engineered for frequencies from 8 to 20 GHz and beyond. Learn how these innovative technologies are poised to transform RF filter design and meet the ever-growing demand for higher performance and greater bandwidth. In addition, we will also showcase the capabilities of Akoustis' state-of-the-art foundry services. Attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to witness a live demonstration of our Process Design Kit (PDK), a powerful filter designer tool that streamlines the design process and enables the success of first-pass filter design. Learn how to utilize Akoustis' PDK to harness the full potential of XBAW® technology and accelerate filter development projects.
