Acconeer has extended the agreement with Restar Electronics Corporation to include the Americas. Since July 2019 the two companies have a distributor agreement for the Japanese market, and the decision to extend it to the Americas comes as a natural result of the good progress seen in Japan.
Lars Lindell, CEO Acconeer, comments: "Since we signed a distribution agreement for Japan with Restar Electronics Corporation in July last year we have seen good progress on the Japanese consumer electronics market. Now we are happy to take the next step in the collaboration and extend the coverage to the Americas, to be able to support more customers in the region."
Hiroshi Yajima, President of Restar Electronics Corporation comments: "We have made significant progress in introducing Acconeer's technology into the Japanese markets over the past year, and we are thrilled to expand our efforts into the Americas region. We look forward to our continued partnership with Acconeer as we continue to promote their solution to an even wider range of customers."

Acconeer has agreed with three large global tech companies about a joint proposal to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for new regulations of the 60GHz frequency band in the US. The proposal makes it possible for Acconeer's and other mmWave radar technologies to co-exist with WiGig in the 60GHz band. The submitted proposal can be read at FCC's website.
In the third quarter 2022, Acconeer's net sales amounted to 12,066 kSEK, and the product revenue increased by 62% compared to the same quarter last year. A record number of sensors were sold, 185,419 and 21,116 modules were sold. In total, Acconeer has sold 1,208,596 radar sensors and 100,752 modules since launch.

Acconeer is among the 50 Swedish companies qualified for Deloitte's list Sweden Technology Fast 50. Every year, Deloitte lists the 50 fastest growing tech companies in Sweden. Which ranking Acconeer has among the 50 will be announced in November.
The new module - which will be the first to integrate the new A121 radar sensor - will be called XM125 Entry+ Module. It will have ultra-low power consumption, outstanding system cost and solderable design for optimized integration into mass-produced solutions. The module is planned to be available for customers in Q1 2023.
Acconeer has now shipped more than 100 000 modules with the A111 radar sensor since the company launched its first module in December 2018. Since then, the company has released a range of popular modules where a radar sensor is combined with a microprocessor (MCU) and other supporting components.
Acconeer's A1 pulsed coherent radar sensor is used in an electrical car model from one of the top two American high-volume car makers for the use case access control, which allows touchless opening of the trunk of a car. This is the first commercially available car using the company's technology. Based on forecasts from the distributor, the value of the launch of this one model is estimated to USD 600 000 over three years. Sales to this customer is reflected in sales to Acconeer's distributors.
