Provides Update on Partnership with Teledyne Scientific
GOLETA, Calif., May 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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, provided an update on the progress it is making with its partner, Teledyne Scientific & Imaging, in further validating the power of Resonant’s Infinite Synthesized Networks (ISN®) software platform by developing wide bandwidth, high frequency XBAR® filters with its fourth foundry for devices targeted at non-mobile applications.
These all-acoustic XBAR filters fabricated by Teledyne Scientific are predicted to exhibit the best-in-class wide bandwidth and low insertion loss performance required for the worlds cutting edge 5G applications, without the need for lossy bandwidth-enhancing techniques, such as IPDs.
“Our partner Teledyne Scientific successfully fabricated 5G filters based on our XBAR technology with wide bandwidth and high frequency performance - a key step in bringing our industry-leading XBAR technology to the non-mobile RF-filter marketplace,” stated George B. Holmes, Chairman and CEO of Resonant. “Our XBAR technology can be manufactured using standard semiconductor processing steps, and we have now demonstrated this in four unique fabs with first pass success. We remain on track to deliver the initial non-mobile samples in the first half of this year. Non-mobile target markets for our XBAR-based filters include WiFi CPE and Enterprise applications, 5G network infrastructure, and small cells – each of which expands our market opportunity beyond the mobile market.”
“With this successful demonstration of 5G capable XBAR filter performance, we have moved closer to high volume manufacturing of Resonant’s XBAR technology,” stated Bobby Brar, President of Teledyne Scientific Company. “XBAR is manufactured using standard Semiconductor processes leveraging our capabilities, which translates to no new inventions, non-traditional processes or materials. All of the processing steps have been optimized and the first devices tested.”

About Resonant’s ISN® Technology
Resonant can create designs for difficult bands, modules and other complex RF Front End requirements that we believe have the potential to be manufactured for less cost and less time than traditional approaches. ISN is a suite of proprietary mathematical methods, software design tools and network synthesis techniques that enable us to explore a much larger set of possible design solutions that regularly incorporate our proprietary technology. We then quickly deliver design simulations to our customers, which they manufacture or have manufactured by one of our foundry partners. These improved solutions still use Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) or Temperature Compensated Surface Acoustic Wave (TC-SAW) manufacturing methods and perform as well as those using higher cost manufacturing methods such as Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW). Resonant's method delivers excellent predictability, enabling achievement of the desired product performance in roughly half as many turns through the fab. In addition, because Resonant's models are fundamental, integration with its foundry and fab customers is seamless because its models speak the "fab language" of basic material properties and dimensions.
