Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., the World's Leading RF Module and Filter Provider and Resonant, Inc. Confirm Target Performance, Packaging and Initial Reliability for First Mobile XBAR Design, and Approve Move to the Manufacturing Development Phase of the Agreement
Resonant receives second payment based on strategic alliance on pre-paid royalties
GOLETA, CA - October 5, 2020 - Resonant Inc. (NASDAQ: RESN), a leader in transforming the way radio frequency, or RF, front-ends are being designed and delivered for mobile handset and wireless devices, has achieved the second and most critical milestone under its agreement for the development of 5G mobile XBAR® filters with the world’s largest RF filter manufacturer. This milestone allows Resonant to move to the next phase of the Agreement, which focuses on building commercial platform & high-volume manufacturing of XBAR-based RF filters for 5G.
Resonant’s achievement of the second milestone, a prerequisite that enables commercialization, required Resonant’s XBAR RF filters to achieve previously determined target performance, packaging and initial reliability. With the second milestone achieved, Resonant will now begin working on the balance of the mobile 5G XBAR RF filter designs under the final two phases of the initial agreement.
“Delivering against this second milestone provides second payment of strategic alliance on pre-paid royalty payments, but more importantly, our first 5G XBAR designs have met the necessary metrics to continue towards mass production with the world’s largest RF filter manufacturer,” said George B. Holmes, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Resonant. “Although there are additional milestones required prior to commercial production of these designs, our partner’s commitment, time and resources have increased significantly to ensure the success of our XBAR technology reaching the market with dominant scale.”
