1) Expanded “R” Series

The Renaissance R-Series product list continues to grow. With new products released every month this series now includes several components. This series addresses high volume requirements at competitive prices. If you have a requirement of 500 units or more, be sure to inquire about R-Series availability.

Our R-Series line of low cost isolators is suitable for typical SATCOM applications including VSAT, tracking satellites, data relay satellites, microwave imaging, and environmental satellites. These low cost isolators can also be used for other applications.

2) “SLE” Series Growth

The SLE series product is our fastest growing market segment. We continue to address new requirements with ongoing development activity. Notable features of these units are small footprint and low price (at large volumes). Work is in progress to reduce the height of these units to support new applications with height constraints. The SLE Series addresses low power applications (<10 W), which include Wireless Microphones, GPS, and IFF.

3) New Solid-State based Switch Matrix

Renaissance Electronics Switch Product Group engineers recently completed development of an 8 in by 12 out solid-state Switch Matrix.

The 18A2BA is a solid-state based switch matrix that is configured for 8 inputs and 12 outputs and is controlled by a Keypad and/or Ethernet (it has its own TCP/IP). The ability to access and control integrated matrix products is a first for Renaissance. In addition to custom programming we also incorporated new design ideas that replaced some cabling with printed circuit solutions.

To meet the non-blocking, full fan out requirement, eight 12-way power dividers at the inputs were connected to twelve SP8T switches at the respective outputs. Each input port has an LNA that ensures unity gain and keeps noise figure below 12 dB.

4) Renaissance Attends Technical Workshop

Renaissance's RF Sub-system product group recently attended the High Data Rate Mobile Network Overlays & Base Station Upgrades technical workshop hosted by the IWPC. This event, along with other industry events, allows Renaissance to interact with and learn from industry leaders to stay on the cutting edge of technology.

A major topic at this workshop was upgrading existing cell sites to 4G technology which was fitting since Renaissance has formed a research and development team to work in this same area. Look out for products adapted to this application, such as our multi-band combiner which allows signals with different frequencies and modulations to be combined.

5) Renaissance Growth

Renaissance Electronics has experienced steady growth over the past several years. Our Ferrite product line continues to be strong and we have plans for, and have begun to realize, a major expansion of our Switch and RF Subsystem product lines.

We have added several persons this year in our engineering, manufacturing, and quality departments. An expanded manufacturing team helps ensure that quality products are delivered on time, every time. We have also added new design and test engineers to our fast growing Integrated Switch product line.

Renaissance continues to focus on its vision to be the world’s preferred supplier of RF Products by supporting our customers and their design and manufacturing projects. If you are looking for a technology-driven company, contact a Renaissance Sales Team member.
