Akoustis™ to Present at the 2016 IEEE RFIC Symposium

Charlotte,NC, May 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Charlotte, N.C., May 18, 2016 – Akoustis Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: AKTS) (“Akoustis” or the “Company”), a manufacturer of innovative BulkONE™ single crystal piezoelectric bulk acoustic wave (BAW) RF filters for mobile wireless, announced today its Chief Device Scientist, Dr. Rama Vetury, will be a featured presenter at the 2016 IEEE RFIC Symposium. The RFIC Symposium is part of “Microwave Week”, the largest worldwide RF/microwave meeting of the year.

The presentation takes place May 23, 2016 in session RMO2A-1, from 10:10 AM to 10:30AM PST at the Marriott Salons 1–3, located in San Francisco, CA.

During the presentation entitled, “Single Crystal AlGaN Bulk Acoustic Wave Resonators on Silicon Substrates with High Electromechanical Coupling,” Dr. 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, cutting edge class of BAW-based RF filters based upon patented, highly differentiated high-purity single crystal piezoelectric materials. 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.
