Resonant opens office in South Korea

Resonant Inc. (NASDAQ: RESN), a designer of filters for radio frequency front-ends, has opened a new office in South Korea to support its customers and partners in the region, the company said.

In conjunction with the new office, Jangwon Jung has been appointed as the Country Sales Manager, Korea. Previously, Jung worked with Cavenish-Kinetics and a number of other US based companies to support and build their presence in the APAC region. His in-depth knowledge of the market and specifically the RF front-end market made him a clear choice for developing and managing Resonant´s operations in the region.

Resonant´s current partners in Korea are developing products for the already established large Korean market, as well as the growing Chinese market. The new office will facilitate the support of these customers and partners in broadening their revenue potential and accelerating growth in those markets and beyond.

Resonant is creating 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.
