California-based late-stage development company Resonant Inc. (NASDAQ: RESN) has signed a new joint development agreement with another leading RFFE component vendor.
The agreement encompasses the development of Resonant´s second complex filter that is specifically focused on the support of the Time Division Duplex (TDD) requirements of the Chinese market, and is also the second engagement with a company that doesn´t own its own fab.
Utilizing Resonant´s Infinite Synthesized Network (ISN) platform enables cost-effective designs for the challenge represented by LTE bands in China crowded next to existing WiFi and Bluetooth spectrum with only narrow guardbands.
This co-existence issue requires both high rejection to neighboring potential interference and high power capability to maximize coverage. This agreement will enable the customer to evaluate Resonant´s ISN platform and services team´s ability to design and partner with a third party fab to deliver this TDD filter.
Upfront payments and milestone payments have been agreed upon, but will not be disclosed due to the confidential nature of such agreements.
Resonant is creating software tools and IP and licensable blocks that enable the development of innovative filter designs for the RF front-end, or RFFE, for the mobile device industry.
