Akoustis Ships First BAW Filter Prototypes Operating above 3.5 GHz

Akoustis Technologies has announced first shipment of its premium high-band BAW filter prototypes for a radar applications to address challenging electrical and size requirements dictated by the military. These bandpass filters operate with a passband from 3.5 to 3.9 GHz and are manufactured using their patented single-crystal BulkONE technology in the Company’s NY wafer fabrication facility.

These high-band BAW filter prototypes achieve low insertion loss over the 100 MHz passband with high out-of-band rejection greater than 40 dB. The filters were assembled in a custom, small form-factor package that is 2.5 mm x 2 mm x 0.8 mm - an 80% to 90% reduction in size when compared to conventional cavity or integrated passive devices (IPD) filters.

The filter prototypes were shipped to a well-established OEM specializing in non-mobile communication systems, with annual revenues of more than $1 Billion. Akoustis has invoiced this customer from an open purchase order it received and announced in December 2016. Akoustis was responsible for the design, fabrication, characterization and delivery of first articles, which could lead to a production ramp in 2018.
