EvoNexus Company, Abtum, Hopes to Go Hyper in Wake of 320,000 Round

Q4 Ramp-Up Planned For Filter Technology Product

A technology company housed at an Irvine incubator closed a $320,000 seed round, bringing in total funds raised to more than $750,000, Chief Executive Behnam Analui said.

Abtum has developed radio frequency technology to improve the functionality of filters for mobile devices, wireless networks and the Internet of Things, including smart-home devices, automobiles and infrastructure.

Abtum, housed at incubator EvoNexus, aso signed two strategic partnership agreements, one with a partner in Taiwan, the other with a partner in Korea, both of which it didn’t disclose. Both partners are working with it on its first product for the mobile market, an offering designed for 4G LTE-Advanced smarphones. Phones that incorporate Abtum’s filters will support a feature that increases by two to five times the data bandwidth consumers can get from their mobile devices, Analui said.
