Akoustis Receives 4th Production Order for its 3.8 GHz XBAW Filter from a Defense Customer

Akoustis has received a new production order and has shipped the first of four open orders to its defense customer for 3.8 GHz XBAW filters, with the next two orders expected to ship in the current quarter. 

Akoustis has been working recently with a new outsourced packaging supplier to improve the speed and scale at which it can deliver 3.8 GHz filters to its defense customer. The timeline to transfer the packaging supply chain and finish the design is now complete, and the first open production order has been shipped. 

During the current quarter, the Company expects to complete shipments on two additional open production orders for 3.8 GHz filters, with the fourth to ship in the second half of the calendar year. Additionally, Akoustis expects to receive an order for a new program from its defense customer in the current quarter requiring at least one new filter at a frequency band synergistic with 5G spectrum. 

The 3.8 GHz filter is designed and manufactured using the Company’s patented XBAW process and manufactured in the Company’s Si-MEMS Wafer Fab located in Canandaigua, NY. 

Akoustis has introduced several new filters over the past twelve months including a 5.6 GHz WiFi filter, a 5.2 GHz WiFi filter, a 3.8 GHz filter for defense phased-array radar applications, a 3.6 GHz filter for the CBRS infrastructure market and Band 25 downlink and uplink filters for LTE infrastructure. The Company is also developing several new filters for the sub 7 GHz bands targeting 5G mobile device, network infrastructure, WiFi CPE and defense markets.
