Leading the company into a new era as Eravant

You're changing the name from SAGE Millimeter to Eravant. What led to the change, and what is the messaging behind Eravant?

We put months of thought into the name Eravant, and in its purest form, becoming Eravant is about looking forward to who we want to be. It is about defining the type of team we want to be: customer-centric, results-driven and constantly striving. It is our renewed promise to our customers that we won’t stop investing in our company and making room for great people.

SAGE is an acronym for the surnames of our founders (Shu and Gu Electronics), but we think it’s time to be more inclusive of anyone who wants to be part of our journey. Instead of keeping the acronym, we decided to honor our founders in a different way. Eravant is a portmanteau of “era” and “savant.” Yonghui and Xiaoxin’s first company was named WiseWave and their second was SAGE Millimeter. All three brands capture their reverence for knowledge seekers and knowledge sharers.

SAGE Millimeter founder & CTO, Yonghui Shu speaks with Microwave Journal about his newest contribution to the industry.

July 29, 2019


Yonghui Shu, the president of SAGE Millimeter, Inc, recently gave an interview to Microwave Journal, the leading source for information about RF and Microwave technology, design techniques, news, events and educational information. Mr. Yonghui Shu talks about his motivations for founding SAGE Millimeter and his current view of the marketplace. Here is a snippet from the interview:

How is the market different today, compared to when SAGE Millimeter was formed? Did you expect such a dramatic transformation driven by society’s demand for bandwidth?

The industry has changed tremendously in the six years that SAGE has been in business. Millimeter wave technology has finally found its way from traditional clients and applications in aerospace, military and academic/research institutions to the commercial — and even consumer — world. Leading the change is the race to 5G, which has easily garnered the most clout, speculation and attention. Yet, we would be remiss not to mention that many of the most exciting technologies currently being developed, like last mile networks, automotive driver assistance systems, WiGig, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and the Internet of Things (IoT) have also contributed to this shift.
