Superconductor Technologies Inc. (STI), incorporated on May 11, 1987, is engaged in developing and commercializing high temperature superconductor (HTS) materials and related technologies. The Company provides solutions for wireless infrastructure in the telecommunications industry. The Company’s commercial product offerings are divided into three areas: SuperLink (high-temperature superconducting filters), AmpLink (high performance, ground-mounted amplifiers) and SuperPlex (high performance multiplexers). In addition, the Company has strategic initiatives for an HTS wire platform, RF filters and cryocoolers. Its revenue comes from the design, manufacture, and sale of high performance infrastructure products for wireless communication applications.
SuperLink is a compact and reliable receiver front-end HTS wireless filter system to eliminate out-of-band interference for wireless base stations, combining filters with a cryogenic cooler and a cooled low-noise amplifier. Its AmpLink is a ground-mounted unit for wireless base stations that includes an amplifier and up to six dual duplexers. SuperPlex is a multiplexer that provides low insertion loss and cross-band isolation designed to eliminate the need for additional base station antennas and reduce infrastructure costs. It sells its commercial products to a small number of wireless carriers in the United States, including AT&T and Verizon Wireless.
The Company competes with American Superconductor, SuperPower, SuNam, THEVA, Alcatel-Lucent, Powerwave, and RFS.
