Management Commentary
“We closed 2020 with several significant milestones, which included record revenues of approximately $3.2 million for the year,” said George Holmes, Chairman and CEO of Resonant. “Customer shipments of RF filters designed with our technology increased to 6.9 million units in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing a year-over-year increase of over 200%. These fourth quarter unit volumes contributed to our previously announced milestone of Resonant’s customers cumulatively shipping over 50 million RF filters to-date.”

Holmes continued: “Our work with our strategic partner, the world’s largest RF filter manufacturer, continues to progress and we are currently working together to build a commercial platform and high-volume manufacturing capabilities to bring our XBAR® 5G RF filters to market. As we enter 2021, with accelerating momentum with our customers, we find ourselves uniquely positioned to build notable market share for our innovative RF filter designs for ultra-fast, next generation networks with complex requirements, such as 5G and Wi-Fi.”

About Resonant’s ISN® Technology
Resonant can create designs for difficult bands, modules and other complex RF Front End requirements that we believe have the potential to be manufactured for less cost and less time than traditional approaches. ISN is a suite of proprietary mathematical methods, software design tools and network synthesis techniques that enable us to explore a much larger set of possible design solutions that regularly incorporate our proprietary technology. We then quickly deliver design simulations to our customers, which they manufacture or have manufactured by one of our foundry partners. These improved solutions still use Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) or Temperature Compensated Surface Acoustic Wave (TC-SAW) manufacturing methods and perform as well as those using higher cost manufacturing methods such as Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW). Resonant's method delivers excellent predictability, enabling achievement of the desired product performance in roughly half as many turns through the fab. In addition, because Resonant's models are fundamental, integration with its foundry and fab customers is seamless because its models speak the "fab language" of basic material properties and dimensions.
