1) Major Goals Achieved by Renaissance Electronics in May
Renaissance Electronics celebrated our best booking and sales month during May 2005.

Renaissance Electronics achieved record numbers in both the booking of new orders and in the shipment of product to our customers. This achievement is a result of creating a teaming relationship with our customers to offer the best value product for their applications. This consists of developing a close relationship during the engineering process to design a part that meets the customer’s requirements; on-time delivery of our product with high quality standards and a close relationship providing excellent customer service.


2) New Cellular Power Combiner

Renaissance Electronics has been awarded a new development project by a US based cellular service provider to design and manufacture a 2-way high power combiner. This high power combiner will have low insertion loss, high isolation and operates in the 900 MHz band. With the use of forced air cooling, the combiner is rated for 250 Watts CW per channel. The input and output connectors will be located on the same side for ease of access.

The unit will combine two incoherent signals with composite power levels of 207 Watts in one channel and 127 Watts in the other.

The selection of Renaissance Electronics to develop this new cellular combiner further enhances our reputation as a Technology Driven company.

3) Development Order for New Switch Matrix
Renaissance Electronics has been awarded a development order for a state-of-the-art 6 GHz Switch Matrix for Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) operation. This Switch Matrix will have two device-under-test (D.U.T.) ports and 6 instruments ports. The RF signal can be routed from either D.U.T. port to any of the instrument port by electro-mechanical switches. There are programmable attenuators and combiners that can synthesize and produce the desires RF signals at the output ports.

The Switch Matrix is fully controlled by GPIB interface and LabView drivers. The Switch Matrix fits into a standard 19” rack and consumes 2U in height.

Similar Switch Matrices are available for WiFi, WiMAX, 802.11and 802.16 frequency bands.

4) Ferrite Isolator Follow-On Order

Renaissance Electronics received follow-on orders for the SPY-3 program to manufacture Isolators for a major defense contractor. Renaissance won these orders with on-time delivery and by providing a series of highly reliable Isolators. We have been in continuous production on these Isolators which ultimately are on the AEGIS Radar Platform.
