New API Technologies RF/Microwave Engineering Online Design Tool Now Available

New tool helps engineers modify standard API Technologies' RF/Microwave products

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 16, 2014 -- API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: ATNY), a leading provider of high performance RF/Microwave, power and security solutions for high-reliability applications, today announced the launch of a new product configuration tool that helps engineers modify standard API Technologies' RF/Microwave products to meet their unique design parameters. The web accessible and mobile-friendly tool is available at http://micro.apitech.com/configure.


Initially offering configuration options for synthesizers and amplifiers, API plans to expand the tool to other products in the future. Current customization options include frequency range, noise figure, gain, output intercept points, power supply voltage, as well as preferred package style.

API's new design tool enables users to create a performance-based model of their chosen design, in real time. Once complete, users can print out a configuration summary or share their design via e-mail and social media. Users may also come back to their configuration at any time to collaborate with team members or modify performance criteria.

"With the configuration tool, engineers can easily modify an existing standard design based on their own unique performance criteria, which can reduce up-front engineering and development time, and result in cost savings and shorter lead times," said Dennis Barrick, Technical Marketing Director, RF Microwave & Microelectronics (RF2M-US), API Technologies.

This online tool complements API Technologies' suite of standard and configurable products, which has expanded to include the recently released family of affordable, surface mount synthesizers and full line of high frequency, broadband amplifiers.

"API's expanded availability of RF/Microwave standard and configurable products allows us to extend our geographic reach, as well as offer better value to customers by streamlining the design process," said Tara Condon, Vice President of Corporate Development.

API Technologies has a long and successful heritage in the development and manufacturing of standard, configurable, and custom RF, microwave, and millimeter wave solutions for military, commercial, and space applications. Featured product offerings include: filters, GaN-based high power amplifiers, switched filter banks, integrated microwave assemblies, system-level-ready active sub-arrays used in AESA radars, power management products, and hybrid microelectronics.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
