Resonant Inc. Provides Update on Breakthrough XBAR™ Technology for 5G Mobile Devices
- First filters using XBAR™ resonators fabricated
- Presenting latest on XBAR this June at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Boston, MA
- Company will be discussing its breakthrough XBAR technology at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain
GOLETA, Calif., Feb. 11, 2019 (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 related to its breakthrough resonator technology, XBAR™, which holds the potential for a new class of high-performance RF filters for 5G devices.
“We first introduced XBAR resonators in October of 2018 and have made significant progress,” stated George B. Holmes, CEO of Resonant. “The first filters using our XBAR resonators have been fabricated and current tests of these XBAR filters are demonstrating the capability to handle the wider passbands required for 5G. A key requirement, and critical for the realization and adoption of 5G, is much larger bandwidth capability than is currently available from existing filters. As such, we believe XBAR filters will enable faster adoption of 5G, from sub-6 GHz to up to 30 GHz – an annual market we believe will grow to be more than $10 billion.”
XBAR Progress to Date
- First filters using XBAR resonators have been fabricated
- XBAR filters are successfully demonstrating greater than 500 MHz bandwidth at 5 GHz
- XBAR filters have a significantly smaller form factor than competing dielectric-based filters
International Microwave Symposium (IMS)
Dr. Victor Plessky, Resonant Director of Engineering at GVR, a wholly owned subsidiary of Resonant, has been invited to present at IMS2019 a paper titled “Laterally excited bulk wave resonators (XBARs) based on thin Lithium Niobate platelet for 5 GHz and 13 GHz filters,” which presents measured data from XBAR resonators. The symposium will take place on June 2-7, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts.
Members of Resonant’s management will be attending MWC 2019 in Barcelona from February 25-27 where they will demonstrate the performance of XBAR filters for 5G applications, to potential customers, analysts and media. To arrange a briefing and demonstration of Resonant’s innovative XBAR technology, please contact us.
About Resonant Inc.
Resonant (NASDAQ: RESN) is transforming the market for RF front-ends (RFFE) by disrupting the RFFE supply chain through the delivery of solutions that leverage our Infinite Synthesized Network (ISN) software tools platform, capitalize on the breadth of our IP portfolio, and are delivered through our services offerings. In a market that is critically constrained by limited designers, tools and capacity, Resonant addresses these critical problems by providing customers with ever increasing design efficiency, reduced time to market and lower unit costs. Customers leverage Resonant’s disruptive capabilities to design cutting edge filters and modules, while capitalizing on the added stability of a diverse supply chain through Resonant’s fabless ecosystem-the first of its kind. Working with Resonant, customers enhance the connectivity of current mobile devices, while preparing for the demands of emerging 5G applications.

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 half the cost and developed in half the time of 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.
