Akoustis Technologies, Inc., formerly Danlax, Corp., incorporated on April 10, 2013, is a fabless company engaged in developing, designing and manufacturing radio frequency (RF) filter products for the mobile wireless device industry. The Company operates in the telecommunications and fiber optics sector. The Company is focused on commercializing and manufacturing its Bulk ONE acoustic wave technology to address the critical frequency-selectivity requirements in mobile smartphones. The Company plans to use single crystal piezoelectric materials to develop a class of RF filters with a fundamental advantage to reduce losses over existing thin film technologies. The Company's piezoelectric materials contain high-purity Group III element nitride materials and possess a signature, which can be detected by conventional material metrology tools.
The Company is focused on the commercialization of bandwidth RF filters operating in the high frequency portion of the RF Front end (RFFE) (called high band). The Company focuses on developing a series of filter designs used in the manufacturing of duplexers or more complex multiplexers targeting the fourth generation/long-term evolution (4G/LTE) frequency bands. The Company intends to commercialize and manufacture its Bulk ONE acoustic wave technology to address the frequency-selectivity requirements in mobile smartphones, improving the signal quality of mobile wireless devices and enabling The Internet of Things. The Company is developing resonators for 4G/LTE bands, and the associated models and design kits required to design the RF filters. Akoustis, Inc. is a subsidiary of the Company. The Company's technology is based upon bulk-mode resonance. The Company intends to design and manufacture the RF filter products to multiple customers.
The Company competes with Broadcom, Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Qorvo, Inc., Skyworks Solutions Inc., Taiyo Yuden and TDK Epcos.
