  • Akoustis Announces Two New WiFi 6E XBAW Coexistence Filters with Enhanced 5 GHz Spectrum Use and Receives First Order from Tier-1 OEM

    XBAW WiFi 6E Coexistence Filter Solution Enables Greater Use of 5 GHz Band Utilizing 60 MHz Expanded SpectrumTwo New Standard 5.6/6.6 GHz XBAW Filter Modules Allow Use of Seven 80 MHz and Three 160 MHz Channels in the 5 GHz SpectrumOrder from Tier-1 OEM for the Development of MU-MIMO Products for Next-Gen WiFi Networks Charlotte, N.C., April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Akoustis Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKTS) (“Akoustis” or the “Company”), an integrated device manufacturer (IDM) of patented bulk acoustic wave (BAW) high-band RF filters for mobile and other wireless applications, announced today that it is introducing two new WiFi 6E XBAW® filter modules that allow for the enhanced use of the 5 GHz WiFi spectrum. The 5.6 GHz filter module covers the entire UNII 1-3 spectrum and enables an additional 80 MHz and 160 MHz channel in UNII 4, while the 6.6 GHz filter module covers the UNII 5-8 spectrum. Current WiFi 6E configurations allow for the use of six 80 MHz and three 160 MHz channels in the UNII 1-3 spectrum and fourteen 80 MHz and seven 160 MHz channels in the UNII 5-8 spectrum. The new XBAW® 5.6/6.6 GHz coexistence filter modules allow for the use of seven 80 MHz and three 160 MHz channels in the UNII 1-4 spectrum and twelve 80 MHz and six 160 MHz channels in the UNII 5-8 spectrum. Given that the 6 GHz portion of the WiFi 6E standard is just beginning to experience utilization, this new XBAW® coexistence solution allows for an environment of greater capacity in the 5 GHz bands. The first order for the new WiFi 6E filters is from a tier-1 OEM that intends to create multi-user, multiple-in-multiple-out mesh routing products for the consumer market. Commercial production is expected in late calendar 2021 to early calendar 2022. Dave Aichele, EVP of Business Development of Akoustis, stated, “These new 5.6 GHz and 6.6 GHz WiFi 6E filters provide customers with greater flexibility when choosing RF solutions for next generation WiFi networking products.” Mr. Aichele continued, “We are excited that we have already received our first order for this new enhanced UNII 1-4 XBAW® coexistence solution and believe we will continue to see strong momentum with both of our WiFi 6E coexistence filter solutions.” The FCC announced in April of 2020 the approval of 5.9 to 7.1 GHz for unlicensed use, which is the largest spectrum addition since the FCC allocated unlicensed spectrum for WiFi in 1989. The next generation of WiFi that is expected to use these new frequency bands is called WiFi 6E. This approval will create another significant new band, or combination of bands, over the next several years. Since the FCC’s April announcement, governments around the world have begun allocating the same or similar spectrum for future WiFi use. As spectrum is scarce, many nations are limited in the amount of new, available unlicensed spectrum above 6 GHz. This is driving great demand for high-performance coexistence filters that allow the use of all available spectrum. Akoustis is actively delivering volume production of its WiFi 6 tandem filter solutions, shipping multiple 5G small cell XBAW® filter solutions, delivering initial designs of its new 5G mobile filter solutions to multiple customers and is now entering the market with its WiFi 6E coexistence XBAW® filter solutions. Company management expects continued top-line growth moving forward and given the growing backlog of commercially available RF filter products and technology aimed at large and growing markets, it plans to significantly expand the capacity at its New York fab in calendar 2021. Akoustis has added 15 filters to its product catalog including a 5.6 GHz WiFi filter, a 5.2 GHz WiFi filter, a 5.5 GHz WiFi 6E filter, a 6.5 GHz WiFi 6E filter, three small cell 5G network infrastructure filters including two Band n77 filters and one Band n79 filter, a 3.8 GHz filter and five S-Band filters for defense phased-array radar applications, a 3.6 GHz filter for the CBRS 5G infrastructure market and a C-Band filter for the unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) market. The Company is also developing several new filters for the sub-7 GHz bands targeting 5G mobile device, network infrastructure, WiFi CPE and defense markets. About Akoustis Technologies, Inc. Akoustis® (http://www.akoustis.com/) is a high-tech BAW RF filter solutions company that is pioneering next-generation materials science and MEMS wafer manufacturing to address the market requirements for improved RF filters - targeting higher bandwidth, higher operating frequencies and higher output power compared to incumbent polycrystalline BAW technology deployed today.

  • Akoustis Awarded New Design Win for XBAW Filters from New CBRS Customer

    Company’s 3.6 GHz XBAW Filter Enables Selectivity in Last-Mile Wireless Connectivity Solution Using Recently Auctioned CBRS Bands Customer is Expected to Ramp Production in 2nd Half of Calendar 2021 Charlotte, N.C., March 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Akoustis Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKTS) (“Akoustis” or the “Company”), an integrated device manufacturer (IDM) of patented bulk acoustic wave (BAW) high-band RF filters for mobile and other wireless applications, announced today it has been awarded a design win and received a volume order for its 3.6 GHz Citizens Band Radio Service (CBRS) XBAW® filter solution for advanced network infrastructure products targeting last-mile connectivity solutions for network operators. This is the second customer to order the Akoustis AKF-1336 3.6 GHz XBAW® filter solution for advanced CBRS network infrastructure products; the Company is actively engaged with over 10 CBRS equipment makers. This new customer plans to use the Akoustis 3.6 GHz XBAW® filters for qualification in CBRS fixed wireless equipment that is expected to ramp production in the second half of calendar 2021. The product application, which will require multiple 3.6 GHz XBAW® filters per unit, is for use in base station nodes. Dave Aichele, EVP of Business Development of Akoustis, stated, “With the recently completed CBRS auctions, we are experiencing a high degree of interest in our leading XBAW® filter portfolio for CBRS networking equipment.” Mr. Aichele continued, “Our XBAW® filters provide the necessary interference protections for incumbent operations adjacent to the CBRS bands. We believe we are well positioned to benefit from the likely increase in demand for CBRS-related high frequency BAW filter solutions and expect additional production orders for this key 5G market going forward." The FCC’s CBRS spectrum auctions completed last summer have set the stage for CBRS last mile infrastructure roll-out across the United States, beginning in calendar 2021. The CBRS bands will enable new and existing carriers to provide last-mile data service and augment individual networks. In addition, CBRS will enable the delivery of campus-wide communications and create secure IoT networks. The CBRS bands operate between 3.5 and 3.7 GHz and will provide cellular carriers and other major communications companies new and additional sub-6 GHz spectrum, which can be a key enabler for making 5G deployments possible by providing last-mile data service and improving coverage of individual unlicensed networks. Verizon, Dish Network, Comcast and Charter were the early winners, spending approximately $3.7 billion of the total $4.6 billion for public access licenses (PALs) in the recent auction. Akoustis previously announced a 500% capacity expansion at its New York fab which is expected to be completed by this June. To support the anticipated filter demand from multiple 5G handset, infrastructure, WiFi 6E and other customers in calendar 2022 and beyond, the Company recently elected to double its manufacturing capacity once again beyond its previously stated plan by the end of calendar 2021. Akoustis is actively delivering volume production of its WiFi 6 tandem filter solutions, shipping multiple 5G small cell XBAW® filter solutions, delivering initial designs of its new 5G mobile filter solutions to multiple customers and is now entering the market with its WiFi 6E coexistence XBAW® filter solutions.

The customer is building a MU-MIMO router using multiple XBAW® filters per device, targeting the consumer market. The Company expects the product to enter production in the second half of calendar 2021. Dave Aichele, EVP of Business Development at Akoustis, stated, “The demand for our WiFi 6E XBAW® filters is robust given our superior selectivity performance.” Mr. Aichele continued, “We are leading the development of BAW-based micro-filter solutions for the WiFi 6E market for CPE devices as well as gaining interest from the 5G mobile handset market and we expect our WiFi 6E business to drive significant revenue growth moving forward.” The FCC announced in late April the approval of 5.925 to 7.125 GHz for unlicensed use, which is the largest spectrum addition since the FCC allocated unlicensed spectrum for WiFi in 1989. The next generation of WiFi that is expected to use these new frequency bands is called WiFi 6E. This approval will create another significant new band, or combination of bands, over the next several years. Since the FTC’s April announcement, governments around the world have begun allocating the same or similar spectrum for future WiFi use. Akoustis’ high frequency, high performance XBAW® process and filters are experiencing growing interest as the Company entered production in multiple markets in calendar 2020, including 5G network infrastructure, high-band WiFi and phased-array radar applications.
