Akoustis Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKTS) shares jumped more than 17% after the Company announced that it has received five new Wi-Fi design wins from multiple customers, each of which is expected to ramp into production and ship in the current calendar year.
“Our momentum in Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E continues to grow given our size advantage over incumbent ceramic technologies and our performance advantages over other micro-filter solutions for high-frequency Wi-Fi.” Mr. Shealy continued, “We have grown our Wi-Fi design wins in production from one to five in the past three months, and now expect that number to grow substantially in calendar 2022 as we have significantly increased our total design wins already this year.”Jeff Shealy, founder and CEO of Akoustis
The wins include four designs using W-Fi 6E and one using Wi-Fi 6 XBAW™ filters. Akoustis now has thirteen design wins in Wi-Fi – eight in Wi-Fi 6E and five in Wi-Fi 6.
