Resonant to Supply SAW Based Quadplexers to the Chinese Market

Resonant has signed a licensing agreement with a new client, who is an established provider of key components for the RF Front End (RFFE) market in China. The new license agreement covers the development and licensing of two Quadplexers that will be designed using a standard Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) process.

The agreement will leverage existing SAW foundry partners, as well as backend and packaging partners, capitalizing on Resonant’s transformative position in enabling a fabless filter supply chain model to provide an alternative, stable and secure supply chain for the emerging module market in China. Design acceptance, milestone payments and royalty terms have been agreed upon, but will not be disclosed due to the confidential nature of such agreements.

According to Resonant, the new client has an extensive customer base, which includes several Tier One handset vendors in the Chinese market. Working closely with their existing foundry partners, Resonant is using the fabless model to capitalize on the quickly expanding RFFE market, potentially disrupting the supply chain by enabling new market entrants with the potential for faster design times and lower cost.
