South Korea’s mmWave experts join forces with Filtronic
Filtronic have today announced signing an exclusive agreement with Comotech Corporation. Comotech are mmWave specialists based in South Korea, with specific expertise in Telecommunications Infrastructure and Aerospace & Defence. They offer design and manufacturing services and provide a range of high-performance E-band radio links. They also have an established offering for ultra-low latency trading, complimenting Filtronics expertise in this niche market.
South Korea is an exciting market for E-band, and as E-band pioneers Filtronic’s product portfolio of high-performance transceivers and power amplifiers enables Comotech to target their domestic market and develop further their established route to market. The company was established in 1999 and since that time they have grown their application experience to include V-band, W-band, as well as E-band.
Comotech have a strong customer base, across multiple verticals, providing access into geographic territories that Filtronic traditionally have had limited access to. They are one of South Korea’s leading mmWave engineering specialists, with specific expertise in 60GHz, 70/80GHz, 90GHz and 110 GHz. Comotech have recently expanded their business into Sub-THz (terahertz), principally 140GHz, 170GHz and 295GHz, joining a next generation 6G research project led by ETRI the national research centre and some of South Korea’s major telecommunication companies.
“Comotech’s values and culture of innovation, customer service, quality and high performance fit Filtronic’s approach perfectly. We are looking forward to working collaboratively with Comotech to the mutual benefit of our organisations,” said Dan Rhodes, Director of Business Development. “Comotech’s markets and product experience complement our core mmWave capabilities perfectly.”
“We are excited by this prospect,“ said Youngsu Kim, CEO of Comotech Corporation. “Their mmWave knowledge is second to none, we have been working with their business development team for a while now on various opportunities and we look forward to representing them in South Korea.”

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.
The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.
CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.
The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.
