1) Phased-Array Radar System Award

Renaissance Electronics received a significant new design and production order for two circulators from a major US systems company.

These low frequency circulators will be used in ground-based surveillance radar which is part of the prime manufacturer’s Foreign Military Sales (FMS) portfolio.

Renaissance will design, qualify and manufacture over 13,000 circulators, both coaxial and drop-in.

Renaissance is proud of its ongoing relationship with this major manufacturer. We hope to maintain this relationship in the years ahead by continuing to manufacture products of the highest quality and value.


2) MEMS Switch Matrix

As was previously announced, Renaissance Electronics has designed a unique 8 x 8 MEMS Switch Matrix. Renaissance recently exhibited this new unit at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium in Honolulu, Hawaii. We believe this is the first commercially available MEMS-Based Switch Matrix.

This new state of the art product has 80 embedded MEMS SPDT switches with a life expectancy greater than 100 billion cycles. We expect to release data sheets for this MEMS Switch Matrix by late July or early August. Production of this and other MEMS-based products is scheduled to begin in late 2007.


3) NEMA Box Receiver Multi-Coupler

Renaissance Electronics recently unveiled its first active outdoor unit in compliance with NEMA regulations. Long known for passive devices, Renaissance is proud to introduce an outdoor version of its highly successful Receiver Multi-Coupler. This all-weather unit is currently undergoing field trials.

Talk to us about enclosing any of our Base Station products in a NEMA box for your outdoor applications.


4) Annual MTT-S Symposium

As in previous years, Renaissance Electronics Corporation participated as an exhibitor in this year’s IEEE Microwave Symposium in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The IEEE MTT-S symposium is the leading annual gathering of engineers, educators and hardware manufacturers involved with RF and Microwave systems and products.

The meeting is not market or product specific but general enough to include avionics, industrial, defense and telecommunication applications.

We thank those who visited our booth and displayed interest in our products.


5) Local High School Scholarship Program

In keeping with our culture values, Renaissance has been participating in the Nashoba Regional High School and Acton Boxborough Regional High School scholarship programs for the past 9 years. Nashoba Regional serves the towns of Stow, Lancaster, and Bolton, while Acton Boxborough serves Acton and Boxborough.

Every year, two students from each school receive monetary awards towards their college education. To be eligible for the awards, students must have verifiable financial need; demonstrate academic excellence in math and science; and display concern for fellow students and the community at large.

This year’s recipients are David Lauritano and Laura O’Neil from Nashoba Regional, and Olga Guzovsky and Andrew Lai from Acton Boxborough. We wish them the very best in their future endeavors!
