Eridan was founded in 2013 in Santa Clara, CA to explore the idea of a polar transmitter built in Gallium Nitride. By combining Earl McCune's experience with polar transmitters, Dubravko Babic's experience with Gallium Nitride, and Doug Kirkpatrick's ability to fill in the gaps, we reached a new level of tunability, energy efficiency, and clean signals with over 28 US patents issued and pending.
