    • Superconductor Technologies (NASDAQ:SCON) reports a test by the Paul Scherrer Institute found the company's Conductus wire "met the critical current (Ic) objective of 500 Amps on a four millimeter width operating in a high magnetic field of 12 Tesla (T) in a low temperature at 4.2 Kelvin (K)." The results are said to represent a 34% improvement over prior tests.
    • Wire was shipped to seven customers in Q4 "for superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL), high performance magnets and NMR/MRI applications," including to two new customers for power and magnet applications. "Feedback and detailed analysis" was received from five customers in mid-December for STI's most recent Conductus test.

    • In an article embargoed until 6AM Tuesday, Benjamin Padnos argues Resonant's (NASDAQ:RESN) RF front end designs are well-positioned to gain share due to the performance demands of modern phones containing 4G modems.
    • Padnos thinks Resonant's technology, which can allow phones to use a single RF filter that switches between channels, could "potentially be included in virtually every mobile device manufactured."
    • He also highlights the company's patent portfolio, Skyworks partnership, and ~$50M market cap.
    • Shares are moderately above May's $6 IPO price, but still well below their $10 opening trade. Superconductor Technologies (SCON +2.4%) owns 11.6% of Resonant; its market cap is currently at $38M.

    • After pricing its 2.7M-share IPO at $6 (in-line with expectations), Resonant (RESN) opened at $10 and is currently at $8.91, up 48.6%. That gives the RF filter developer a $57.7M valuation.
    • Resonant, still in development-stage, has developed filter technology (referred to as ISN) it asserts can both deliver improved performance and enable tunable designs (can cut down on a device's filter count and save space).
    • The company is looking to strike licensing deals that involve royalty payments for RF front-end modules using its IP. It had a Q1 net loss of $3.95M.
    • Resonant has a partnership with RF component giant Skyworks (SWKS +1.8%) to develop an RF duplexer it thinks can cost less than half as much as rival solutions. It also plans to develop tunable filter designs on its own.
    • Superconductor Technologies (SCON -0.7%) owns 11.6% of Resonant post-IPO.
