Drive and Local Charity
years, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program has
distributed more than 332.5 million toys to 158.7 million
underprivileged children. This charitable endeavor has made the U.S.
Marines a leading benefactor of disadvantaged children during Christmas.
Over its 14 year lifespan, an associate, the Marine Toys for Tots
Foundation has supplemented local toy collections with more than 55.5
million toys valued at more than $284 million and provided promotion and
support material valued at over $3.2 million.
Renaissance continued its support of this mission by contributing to the
Ayer Police Department Toys for Tots drive. Mike Snee and Shauna Burnham
spearheaded the Renaissance effort.
The employees of Renaissance Electronics Corporation volunteered their
time and made financial contributions to benefit local children.
Bicycles, transformers, trucks, Magna doodle and brat dolls formed part
of the 860 toys that were donated.
Renaissance employees, along with some of our suppliers, raised over $1,
575 for Loaves and Fishes, a local food pantry.

New 2.4 GHz SLE
efforts for the SLE product series have yielded three new products. As
reported in the December newsletter we completed a 2.4 GHz circulator.
Now ready for production, it covers a 70 MHz bandwidth with 2W forward
power. We have also completed a reduced profile isolator design that is
8 mm square and 5 mm in height. The first production units support 345
MHz operation with 20 MHz bandwidth. Finally, wideband isolators that
support 22% bandwidth are on the threshold of production. Several of the
SLE isolators are now available in corresponding circulator versions.
Renaissance will continue to develop this popular product line as
additional applications are identified. If you have a need for a small
footprint SMT component, the SLE series may be just right.

Sea Launch Update
the hermetically sealed relay switch for Boeing’s famous Sea Launch
program. Since we are proud of our association, we have often used these
pages to provide updates on the status of this project.
Due to unusually strong ocean currents at the launch site, Sea Launch is
rescheduling the launch of the Thuraya-3 satellite. The team is
establishing an extended schedule for the Thuraya-3 mission, as the
vessels return to home port. All personnel are doing well and all
systems and the spacecraft are secure. We will provide updated
information when we have it.
Sea Launch's Zenith-3SL rocket resumes operations with this flight,
carrying the Boeing-built Thuraya-3 mobile communications satellite into
geosynchronous transfer orbit. Once operational, this satellite will
expand Thuraya's network to include all key markets of the Asia Pacific

New Multi-Coupler Application
Electronics is pleased to introduce our 2-3 GHz line of receiver
multi-couplers. These multi-couplers have the same outstanding
specifications such as low noise figures and return loss as our
traditional 800, 900, 1900 and 2100 MHz models ensuring that the entire
system has good signal to noise ratio.
A key new market for these products will be the emerging WiMAX industry.
These units allow multiple radios to be easily added to any existing
These units are available from triple to sextuple 2, 3, 4, and 6-way
