UK-based Forefront RF has received a further £3.75 million in funding from BGF, who previously backed the semiconductor company in 2021. The fresh funds will help the company drive further growth globally.
The fabless semiconductor firm claims to make multi-band smartphones, wearables and IoT Devices simpler to design and accessible worldwide.
“Forefront RF has developed a leading technology solution and highly compelling proposition for a rapidly growing global customer base. We look forward to continuing our work with Ronald and the talented Forefront RF team as they embark on their next stage of growth," says Dennis Atkinson, investor at BGF.
In addition to the investment, Forefront RF is launching a fully tunable duplexer using the company’s patented adaptive passive cancellation technology - which uses software control to enable connected devices to operate effectively across the increasingly wide range of XGen (3G to 6G) mobile telephony frequency bands. The demonstrator, specifically designed for the 600-1000MHz bands, will show Forefront RF’s tunable duplexer technology suitable for the 4G and 5G standards.
We’re delighted to receive further investment from BGF to support the delivery of the next stage of Forefront RF’s growth strategy. Forefront RF is well positioned to capitalise on strong global growth prospects, addressing an industry wide challenge with our cutting-edge technology," says Ronald Wilting, CEO, Forefront RF.
