Nokia has acquired US-based private startup ETA Devices, to enhance its 5G capabilities and technology.

With this acquisition, the company hopes to deploy the tech to bolster its own systems.

ETA devices, that aims to improve the efficiency of the systems deployed in LTE and WCDMA power amplifiers, was founded in 2010 by two MIT electrical engineering professors and a former lead power amplifier (PA) researcher for Ericsson and Huawei.


The company is headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the United States, and has a research and development office in Stockholm, Sweden.

In an official press release, Nokia said, “Eta Devices’ unique ETAdvanced power management technology can reduce heat waste drastically through the use of a new amplifier that works like an automated gearbox, adjusting energy usage by constantly providing just the right amount of power required for a radio signal. This translates to savings for operators that can be invested as 4.9G and 5G approach.”

Though the financial details of the deal are yet to be made public, Nokia will be receiving ownership of Eta’s fixed assets, employees, intellectual property rights, and lease and supplier deals.
