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.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
