MinWave designs and manufactures RF front-end (RFFE) solutions based on novel metamaterials. The fundamental advantage of our technology is the utilization low loss metamaterials in a very small length (typically <λ/2) to realize high-performance and compact devices. The miniaturized innovative solutions also provide sharp selectivity and high rejection levels in an unprecedented fashion. We are developing various passive devices such as filters, diplexers, array antennas for Space and Telecommunications.

Lower volume and mass

Significantly compact and lightweight RFFE components and assemblies based on negative index metamaterials

Higher performance

Patented cutting-edge metamaterial technology for the development of high-performance RFFE solutions

Monolithic assembly

Additive manufacturing  as an enabling method for providing low-cost monolithic RFFE components with complex geometries


Ready for New Space and 5G applications

Based on our innovative technique, we are developing a wide range of RFFE components, e.g., microwave filters, multiplexers, array antennas, etc., to address the needs of two main markets, namely Space communications (SpaceCom) and Telecommunications (TeleCom). Our products bring significant cost savings and the highest quality in the industry for different use cases in these industries. Cost savings are generated either through a reduction in weight and size, a reduction in the noise level and increased quality, or a decrease in energy consumption. 


The SpaceCom industry in two branches of satellites and SatCom terminals demands reduced size and weight components to lower the total mission cost.


With the advent of 5G and beyond, the infrastructure and user devices in TeleCom industry need higher throughput, which translates into cost savings.

MinWave is an EPFL spin-off

We are a world-class team of experts from EPFL, and our technology has been seeded at LWE at EPFL.
