Based in Syracuse, NY with five facilities and approximately 1,200 employees worldwide, Anaren, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANEN) is a 40+-year worldwide supplier of custom and standard high-frequency technology for the space, defense, commercial wireless infrastructure, consumer electronics, and medical device sectors. Subsidiaries include: Anaren Ceramics, Salem, NH; MS Kennedy, Liverpool, NY (www.mskennedy.com); Unicircuit, Littleton, CO (www.unicircuit.com); and Anaren Communications, Suzhou, China.
Wireless Group technologies:
Commercial wireless infrastructure and consumer electronics OEMs the world over rely on Anaren’s high-performance, highly repeatable standard components manufactured in high-volume and sold through authorized stocking distributors. Major lines from this group include:
- Xinger®-brand surface mount components (e.g.: couplers, power dividers, balun transformers, more) for use in both base station equipment and point-of-use technology (i.e. handhelds, Bluetooth® technology, set-top boxes, laptops, etc.)
- Resistive components (terminations, resistors, attenuators) in a wide variety of formats and materials for use in wireless, military, and instrumentation applications.
- New Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) modules developed around Texas Instruments’ world-class semiconductor technology and designed to provide the most elegant, simplified path for transitioning a non-wireless product to ‘wireless.’
- As applicable, RoHS-compliant models are available for all of the above product families.
Space & Defense Group technologies:
The world’s leading defense and aerospace primes and subcontractors also count on Anaren's complex softboard- and ceramic-based RF assemblies, sub-assemblies, packaging, and family of standard mil-Spec components.
Whether the program calls for a standard, Mil-spec component -- or a complex, system-level custom solution -- Anaren is distinguished by (1) its deep RF expertise, (2) vertically integrated capabilities (from extensive design engineering, modeling and analysis, to sophisticated automated manufacturing and testing), and (3) commitment to supporting Tier-1 contractors as they strive to deliver the multi-mission, multi-function DOD technologies of tomorrow. Anaren’s solutions include:
- IMAs (passive, active; RF/analog/digital/mixed signal)
- multi-chip RF modules
- support of next-gen AESAs (manifolds, T/R modules, control)
- broadband receivers for missile applications
- RF and LO distribution for complex receivers
- beamformers for satellite communications antennae
- switch matrices for redundancy and signal routing
- antenna feed networks for surface, airborne, and space radars
- digital RF memories and frequency discriminators
- RF integrated backplanes
- tuners and front-end receivers
- passive and active antenna front-end calibration networks
- wide range of passive & active Mil-spec components (including RAD-hard)
- new to Anaren’s S&D Group (FY 2009): Anaren acquired MS Kennedy Corp (Liverpool, NY) and Unicircuit, Inc. (Littleton, CO) in August 2008, greatly enhancing Anaren’s ability to design, develop, and manufacture complex and fully integrated RF solutions.
