Leeds-based mobile phone technology firm Filtronic lands a £600,000 5G modules contract with a US firm following the successful development of over-the-air 5G mmWave modules for the test equipment market.
The firm said that the new contract will help fulfill its objective of broadening the customer base and address an adjacent market that it has been actively targeting for growth.
The contract will see Filtronic supply the US firm with an initial build of RF front-end modules for their next-generation over-the-air 5G test equipment. The product is designed to extend the frequency range of the client's existing product using Filtronic's extensive mmWave specific design.
Richard Gibbs, CEO of Filtronic, said: "We are delighted to have been chosen to deliver these technically challenging products, to a client who meets our strategic objective of broadening the customer base and the markets we serve, after the completion of a successful design and development phase.
"We now look forward to the challenge of delivering this pilot phase over the next 18 months to ensure we can secure future production orders.
"It is another tremendous endorsement of our engineering and manufacturing capability and establishes our position as a leading global player in the emerging mmWave equipment market."
