Piezoelectric Device Laboratory (PDL) has been selected to participate the "Ddevelopment and Manufacturing of Acoustic Wave Sensor Modules for Intelligent Internet of Things in 5G Era" project under the support by the Science and Technology Innovation 2025 program. The leading company of the project is TXC (Ningbo) Electronics Co., Ltd., which has been collaborating with PDL for more than 10 years. Other partners are the National Nanoscience and Technology Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Information Technology Application Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Ningbo.
PDL of Ningbo University has a strong research program on piezoelectric acoustic devices. Professor Ji Wang has been actively engaging in the industry with renowned expertise in the modeling and analysis of piezoelectric acoustic wave resonators. Piezoelectric Device Laboratory has been working on the key theoretical research in the development of acoustic resonator in this project, which will provide reliable design guidance for the innovative acoustic sensors for IoT applications.
Commenting on the grant in collaboration with TXC and other partners, Professor Ji Wang said: “We have been collaborating with major companies in acoustic wave resonator industry in past decades with successful outcomes. We have won support and trust from our partners in the long history of collaboration. In this project, we have a perfect combination of strengths in design, manufacturing, circuits, and applications in China. Our technology in design and product development will be checked and tested in the process, and we shall contribute to success of the project from active participation and contribution”.
The participation of this project is one of the latest achievements of PDL through long history of research in the theoretical modeling and analysis of piezoelectric acoustic resonators, and also provides a platform for the team to engage in full-fledged research and development of acoustic wave resonators.
