Resonant Signs New Foundry Partner Agreement, Adding to its Fabless Filter Model Eco-System

ResonantResonant Inc., a designer of filters for radio frequency, has signed its fourth non-captive Infinite Synthesized Network (ISN) foundry agreement with an established Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) foundry serving the RF market.

The new agreement increases the robustness of Resonant's fabless SAW eco-system, offering more choices for Resonant customers in the emerging module market. The new vendor provides full foundry services and capabilities as a leading pure play Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) foundry, and will be able to leverage its GaAs customers by offering SAW filters. The company is part of a new business group of a Tier 1 complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) fab company.

This agreement with the fourth foundry partner further validates Resonant’s fabless SAW eco-system model.  This unique business model is speeds up expansion plans and increases value for the company’s shareholders. Resonant is enabling a similar model for RF filters, which have become a key strategic element of the RF front-end.
