Resonant Acquires Filter Design Company GVR for $1.1 Million

first_imgResonant has announced that they have purchased 100% of GVR Trade SA (GVR), a Swiss-based company specializing in the consultation and design of Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) and Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) devices, from its sole shareholder, Dr. Victor Plessky, for approximately $1.1 million in stock and cash.According to Terry Lingren, CEO of Resonant – This acquisition of GVR is a logical extension to the existing long-term cooperation between the two companies. Their collaboration during the past eight years has resulted in the creation of some of the world’s best tools for the design and development of high performance filters, duplexers and quadplexers that currently dominate the RF front-ends of the LTE handset market. Victor and his team add a tremendous depth of knowledge and meaningfully enhance their ISN® Suite of filter design tools and throughput capabilities, thereby, further expanding our ability to support licensing agreements for both current and future partners and customers.GVR is well known for their speed of services and cutting edge modeling techniques that can deliver enhanced designs. They have been at the forefront of acoustic wave filter design, publishing some of the most advanced works in the area for more than 30 years, with over 350 publications and over 2,000 citations.Dr. Plessky has joined Resonant as Director of Engineering and they will also retain other key GVR technical staff. GVR currently markets FEMSAW, an advanced, finite element modelling tool for SAW resonators. Dr. Plessky and his team have been instrumental in developing some of the most advanced techniques in advanced filter design and have been responsible for some of the industry’s most notable publications, including, “Coupling-of-mode analysis of SAW devices”. Most recently, he and his team have authored a paper that has been accepted for publication at the IEEE IUS conference in September, “Hierarchical Cascading in 2D FEM Simulation of Finite SAW Devices with Periodic Block Structure.”GVR has been engaged with the Resonant team since 2008 and have been under contract since 2012. They have collaborated in the development of an essential and specific components of their Infinite Synthesized Network (ISN®) platform. Resonant believes ISN is one of the most advanced physical electro-acoustic tools and is capable of modeling today’s most sophisticated and advanced SAW processes and filter designs. Dr. Plessky will be joining them as a full time employee to assist the Company in the further development and improvement of their ISN platform.last_img read more

GGG vs. Derevyanchenko fight purse: How much will Gennadiy Golovkin make? Prize money, payouts

first_imgGennadiy Golovkin kicked off his DAZN debut in raucous fashion by delivering a fourth-round KO of Steve Rolls at Madison Square Garden in New York City this past June.Now, the former unified middleweight champion returns to the Garden, looking to produce another “Big Drama Show” on Saturday night, and live on DAZN, when he faces Sergiy Derevyanchenko with the vacant IBF title up for grabs. Derevyanchenko was the mandatory challenger to face Canelo Alvarez, but Alvarez was stripped of the IBF belt over his failure to reach a purse bid during talks with the Ukrainian fighter. That’s what set up Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko with the championship strap on the line.Join DAZN to watch GGG vs. Derevyanchenko & 100+ fight nights a yearThe 37-year-old Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KOs) responded to a disappointing majority decision loss to Canelo last September by flattening the virtually-unknown Rolls nearly nine months later. The 33-year-old Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10 KOs) fought for the IBF title before, having lost a split decision to Daniel Jacobs last October in his first pro loss. He rebounded from that defeat by scoring a unanimous decision over Jack Culcay in April.Both GGG and Derevyanchenko are set to be paid handsomely for this title fight. Here’s a breakdown of that purse, including how much each fighter is expected to make.GGG vs. Derevyanchenko fight purseThis will mark the second bout of Golovkin’s three-year, six-fight deal, worth a reported $100 million, that he inked with DAZN in March.That means this fight against Derevyanchenko will likely pay him eight figures and possibly even set up a larger payday if a trilogy fight with Canelo is secured thereafter. However, that last prospect seems bleak for now, with Alvarez voicing his disinterest in a third fight with his rival.Meanwhile, Derevyanchenko is set to earn $5 million for this fight, as reported by ESPN. That’s easily the largest payday of his career, as “The Technician” received a reported $462,500 for his only other world title shot — against Jacobs last fall.What is GGG’s net worth?According to Forbes, Golovkin has a net worth upward of $25 million. That was reported just after his victory over Rolls in June. His fight purse winnings are slated at $23 million, while GGG also has sponsorship deals with the likes of Nike’s Jordan Brand, Hublot, Tecate, and Chivas Regal worth an estimated $2.5 million. Gennadiy Golovkin career recordA split draw and majority loss to Canelo serve as the only blemishes on GGG’s otherwise dominant 39-1-1 pro ledger, and both of those verdicts remain highly controversial.Many boxing fans and experts believe that Golovkin did enough to defeat Canelo in their initial September 2017 meeting, but judge Adalaide Byrd’s 118-110 scorecard in favor of Alvarez left the Kazakh warrior without a win. A sizable share of boxing pundits also believe that Golovkin did enough to defeat Canelo in their September 2018 rematch, although a sharper, more aggressive Alvarez got the majority decision nod.As a former unified world middleweight champion, Golovkin was long considered the boogeyman of the division, before the run-ins with Alvarez. Perhaps a new title reign will return the veteran to that status, especially while Canelo momentarily moves up two weight classes to face Sergey Kovalev for the WBO light heavyweight championship on Nov. 2.last_img read more
