Akoustis ships pre-production BAW filters to tier-1 SoC customer
Akoustis Technologies announced it has shipped pre-production 5.2 GHz and 5.6 GHz tandem BAW filters to a multi-billion dollar, tier-1 SoC customer, targeting tri-band WiFi customer premise equipment. This customer is the third announced SoC maker evaluating use of the 5.2 GHz and 5.6 GHz coexistence XBAW filters for MU-MIMO reference designs in tri-band WiFi applications. Akoustis' 5.2 GHz and 5.6 GHz filters operate in tandem to create the world's first BAW coexistence solution for tri-band WiFi equipment, offering a significant size advantage over existing dielectric resonator filters with up to 23 times smaller footprint. The filters provide low insertion loss, meet the demanding coexistence rejection specifications and can be surface mounted.
