Resonant Inc. (NASDAQ: RESN), a designer of filters for radio frequency, or RF, front-ends that specializes in delivering designs for difficult bands and complex requirements, today announced it has signed an additional licensing agreement with an existing Tier One customer, the company said.
The new license agreement encompasses the development and licensing of a TDD filter, a FDD filter and a Quadplexer, designed using Chip Scale Packaging. All three are considered difficult bands, and are targeted for the Chinese market.
Design acceptance, milestone payments and royalty terms have been agreed upon, but will not be disclosed due to the confidential nature of such agreements.
Resonant is creating software tools and IP & licensable blocks that enable the development of innovative filter designs for the RF front-end, or RFFE, for the mobile device industry.
The RFFE is the circuitry in a mobile device responsible for the radio frequency signal processing and is located between the device´s antenna and its digital baseband. Filters are a critical component of the RFFE that selects the desired radio frequency signals and rejects unwanted signals and noise.
Resonant can create designs for hard bands and complex requirements that we believe have the potential to be manufactured for half the cost and developed in half the time of traditional approaches.
