About Resonant XBAR® Filter technology
Resonant pioneered a new Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) filter technology, XBAR®, to meet the challenging and complex front-end RF requirements of next-generation 5G, Wi-Fi and UWB networks and beyond. 4G BAW filter structures have traditionally been used at frequencies up to 3 GHz and adapted to filter higher frequency bands, which presented significant challenges in terms of performance and capacity. Using WaveX ™, Resonant evaluated various resonators and filter building blocks for wide bandwidth, high frequency and high power filter designs. XBAR® was the result of these extensive studies – the optimal next-generation filtration technology.
XBAR® is the first and only RF filter solution to have natively demonstrated the performance necessary to fully exploit the potential of next-generation wireless technologies, including 5G and Wi-Fi 6 / 6E. In addition, future wireless networks will continue to evolve towards wider bandwidths, higher frequencies and increased complexity, which will further increase the demand for XBAR.® filters. Unlike traditional BAW filters which require complex multi-step manufacturing processes. XBAR® filters are much simpler to manufacture and therefore can take advantage of SAW foundries.
Resonant continues to protect XBAR® technology through fundamental patents and trade secrets associated with disruptive technology, in addition to intellectual property associated with know-how and expertise subsequently developed.
About Resonant’s WaveX ™ Design Technology
Resonant creates designs for challenging RF frequency bands and modules that meet complex and complex 5G, Wi-Fi and UWB RF front-end requirements. By using WaveX ™, Resonant’s designs have the potential to be developed in half the time and manufactured at a lower cost than traditional approaches. WaveX ™ is a suite of proprietary algorithms, software design tools, and network synthesis techniques that allows Resonant to explore a much broader set of possible design solutions.
Resonant provides its customers with rapid design simulations, whether they manufacture in their captive factories or have them manufactured by one of Resonant’s foundry partners. These improved solutions still utilize Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) or Temperature Compensated Surface Acoustic Wave (TC-SAW) technologies with the performance of more expensive manufacturing methods such as Bulk Acoustic Waves (BAW). .
Resonant’s WaveX ™ offers excellent predictability, achieving desired product performance in approximately half the number of manufacturing revolutions. Additionally, Resonant’s simulations model fundamental material and structural properties, making integration with foundry and manufacturing customers much more intuitive, as they speak the “manufacturing language” of properties and dimensions. basic materials.
