Akoustis To Present On AlGaN Filters At 2016 IEEE RFIC Symposium

Chief device scientist to highlight single crystal piezoelectric bulk acoustic wave applications

Rama Vetury, chief device scientist of Akoustis Technologies, will be presenting on the company's AlGaN single crystal piezoelectric bulk acoustic wave (BAW) RF filters at the 2016 IEEE RFIC Symposium. The RFIC Symposium is part of "˜Microwave Week', held in San Francisco 22nd to 24th May .

During the presentation entitled, "˜Single Crystal AlGaN Bulk Acoustic Wave Resonators on Silicon Substrates with High Electromechanical Coupling', Vetury will be highlighting the company's single crystal RF resonator technology, recent technical milestones, and their application to wide bandwidth, high frequency RF filter applications for mobile communications.

Akoustis will also provide an update on the development of a new class of BAW-based RF filters based upon patented, highly differentiated high-purity single crystal piezoelectric materials.

According to the company, its BulkONE technology will service the fast growing multi-billion dollar market of device OEMs, network providers, and consumers to diminish front end phone heat, battery drain and signal loss - all considered to be directly related to the current RF filter technologies' limitations.

Akoustis is a fabless US company based in the Piedmont technology corridor between Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
