2) Success in San Francisco
This year’s IEEE MTT-S conference in San Francisco exhibited how our product lines and capabilities have expanded over the last fifteen years to better cater to the needs of our clients. At this year’s show, Renaissance featured its newly expanded product line, the Waveguide Group. Also, our newest research & development (P/N 3A1NBV) for FM Digital Radio was displayed along with a number of our featured designs.

Renaissance Electronics would like to thank everyone that visited our booth. Along with meeting with existing customers, The Renaissance Electronics’ team was able to explore and discuss several new development projects with customers.

While being in San Francisco, Renaissance conducted one of its scheduled Representative training sessions, where we had over 50 representatives in attendance. During this training session, new developments, expansions of product lines, technical information, and marketing/sales trends were communicated to our Representatives to better equip our Field Sales force to serve our customers.

3) Avionics market Growth continues
As previously reported by Renaissance Electronics, our avionics business continues to grow. In June, Renaissance Electronics received two mid-volume production orders in support of a Radar Altimeter for regional and rotary aircraft.

This 4.2 to 4.4 GHz Isolator in also part of a Radar Altimeter that is being qualified for the emerging Very Light Jet (VLJ) market. This avionics package is currently undergoing FAA certification and will be part of the initial aircraft launch in September 2006.

Renaissance Electronics has aggressively approached the avionics market and is currently developing new surface mount circulators and isolators for the 4.2 to 4.4 GHz band. These are expected to be introduced to avionics equipment manufactures this Fall.

4) Receive-side Expansion Facilitated

Renaissance Electronics has delivered a new 1900 MHz Receiver Multi-Coupler for receive-side basestation expansion to a major cellular service provider.

The Receiver Multi-Coupler is a six 4:1 combiner with selectable 2 or 6 dB of gain, a low noise figure (less than 2 dB) with excellent isolation and return loss characteristics. This device allows a cell site to quadruple its number of channels without employing a full expansion rack or additional antennas. The RMC is optimized for cost and performance and can be easily configured to any custom requirement.

This device or any of our transmit side expansion units are available for 800 MHz, 1800 MHz or 2100 MHz systems. Contact the Base Station Product Group to discuss your requirements or system configuration.
