API Technologies Announces New Switched Multiplexer With Integrated Low Noise Amplifier


Orlando, FL /PRNewswire/ - API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: ATNY) a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, is now offering a switched multiplexerthat includes an integrated Low Noise Amplifier (LNA).

Designed for radar, Electronic Warfare (EW) and Electronics Intelligence (ELINT) applications, this new multiplexer provides excellent broadband performance across the 2 GHz to 18 GHz range using suspended substrate stripline (SSS) technology.

Specifically suited for agile receiver front ends and directional finding systems, API's switched multiplexer provides a 20 dB gain with a 5 dB noise figure and fast switching at 100 nanoseconds as well as low DC power consumption of only 5.25 watts. Sub-octave filter bands used in the multiplexer provide excellent harmonic rejection and high isolation.

Rebecca McCarron, product line manager, RF/Microwave & Microelectronics (RF2M-US), API Technologies said, "By incorporating SSS technology into high performance and versatile integration mediums, API facilitates the combination of filters and active functions on a single substrate. SSS technology is ideal for broadband diplexers and multiplexers because of its superior design flexibility and low loss. Our extensive heritage in SSS design enables API's experienced design team to provide faster prototyping and fewer design iterations than the competition."

API's switched multiplexer can be ordered as a standard part or be customized for customer-specific applications.

API Technologies has a long and successful heritage in the development and manufacturing of RF & Microwave components and subsystems for military, space, and commercial applications. Product offerings include: filters, filter subsystems, small signal amplifiers, high power amplifiers, switched filter banks, system-level-ready Active Antenna Array Units (AAAU) used in AESA Radars, filtered GPS LNAs, a wide variety of passive and active components, complex frequency sources and hybrid microelectronics.
