The Company plans to further expand its capabilities in WLP as it delivers new filters that can leverage the technology for mobile handsets and other devices where size considerations are at a premium.

Both filters are being developed to offer 5G/WiFi coexistence in the mid and ultra-high bands and will be considered for use in filter modules for 5G smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. Akoustis is on-track to deliver the second WLP filter sample to this customer by the end of the current calendar year and remains confident that it will be ready to enter production with this customer in the second half of calendar 2022.
