Akoustis Technologies to Attend 2019 Consumer Electronics Show
Charlotte, N.C., Dec. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Akoustis Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKTS) (“Akoustis” or the “Company”), an integrated design and manufacturer (IDM) of patented bulk acoustic wave (BAW) high-band RF filters for mobile and other wireless applications, announced today members of its senior management team will attend the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on January 8th and 9th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Investors interested in meeting with the Akoustis team at CES should contact Tom Sepenzis, Director of Investor Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For direct sales inquiries, please contact email@example.com.
In December 2018, Akoustis announced the industry’s first 5.6 GHz WiFi BAW RF coexistence filter, the AKF-1256. When paired with the Company’s recently introduced AKF-1252, a high performance 5.2 GHz WiFi BAW RF filter, Akoustis now offers the first tandem BAW coexistence filter solution covering both the 5.2 GHz and 5.6 GHz frequency bands in a tri-band WiFi router.
Akoustis has delivered AKF-1252 XBAW filters to a Tier 1 WiFi OEM for it to evaluate for inclusion in their new 802.11ax tri-band MU-MIMO customer premise equipment (CPE), with an expected design win and production ramp to begin as early as calendar Q2 of 2019. Separately, Akoustis has received pre-production orders for the AKF-1252 from a multi-billion-dollar Tier 1 SoC vendor, as well as a distribution partner.
Akoustis is also actively engaged with multiple Tier 1 global 5G OEM’s in the development of high-frequency 5G BAW filters for the wireless infrastructure and mobile device markets, with commercial launches expected in the second half of calendar 2019.
About Akoustis Technologies, Inc.
Akoustis® (www.akoustis.com) is a high-tech BAW RF filter solutions company that is pioneering next-generation materials science and MEMS wafer manufacturing to address the market requirements for improved RF filters - targeting higher bandwidth, higher operating frequencies and higher output power compared to incumbent polycrystalline BAW technology deployed today. The Company utilizes its proprietary XBAW manufacturing process to produce bulk acoustic wave RF filters for mobile and other wireless markets, which facilitate signal acquisition and accelerate band performance between the antenna and digital back end. Superior performance is driven by the significant advances of high-purity, single-crystal and associated piezoelectric materials and the resonator-filter process technology which drives electro-mechanical coupling and translates to wide filter bandwidth.
Akoustis plans to service the fast growing multi-billion-dollar RF filter market using its integrated design and manufacturing (IDM) business model. The Company owns and operates a 120,000 sq. ft. ISO-9001:2015 certified commercial wafer-manufacturing facility located in Canandaigua, NY, which includes a class 100 / class 1000 cleanroom facility - tooled for 150-mm diameter wafers - for the design, development, fabrication and packaging of RF filters, MEMS and other semiconductor devices. Akoustis Technologies, Inc. is headquartered in the Piedmont technology corridor near Charlotte, North Carolina.
