AFCEA West 2015 Week: Show Preview

by Jaymie Murray 6. February 2015 09:24

AFCEA West 2015 starts on Tuesday, February 10th, and API will be exhibiting a range of products from our Power and Microwave lines. Here's a preview of what you can expect to see at booth #1943.


Tactical Power Supply (TPS) SolutionThe TPS75, a 75 Amp COTS tactical power supply, supports power-hungry applications, such as RF and mobile networks, while eliminating the necessity for tactical vehicle-based power, significantly reducing TOC for military vehicles. 

AC SMARTStart® 3-Phase Power Distribution UnitsThe 3 Phase AC SMARTStart provides power control and distribution for high powered applications. AC SMARTStarts are configurable devices with remotely managed power sequencing and fault management. Remote monitoring reduces the threat of downtime by avoiding unintended power interruptions. 

Power Entry Panel (PEP)The Power Entry Panel (PEP) is a 10KW AC power panel with an automatic transfer switch made to seamlessly transfer from vehicle power to generator or community power. Designed for Command Post Platforms and other derivatives to distribute onboard vehicle power as well as shore power, the PEP ensures reliable power to critical communications and telemetry equipment with minimal downtime and optimal performance.

Power AmplifiersAPI Technologies’ wide bandwidth and high reliability Power Amplifiers operate up to 26 GHz, with output levels from 500mW to 1Kw. Our Power Amplifier products support critical communication requirements for both commercial and military applications.

Wireless Communications FiltersAPI Technologies is a leading manufacturer of high performance filter products for the wireless telecom industry, with expertise in co-location solutions, wireless site development, spectrum clearing, and communication up-link / down-link systems.

Meet Rebecca McCarron, Product Line Manager, RF, Microwave & Microelectronics

by Allison Goss 5. January 2015 10:02

Rebecca McCarron is the Product Line Manager at API Technologies’ Nashua, NH facility. The Nashua facility is home to many of API’s Electronic Warfare (EW) solutions like multiplexers, DFDs & IFMs, as well as passive components such as phase shifters, rotary joints, and switches

As Product Line Manager, Rebecca's role is to identify opportunities and develop strategies to meet the goals of the company through existing and new product introductions. She works closely with the engineering and production teams to support new product inquiries and development projects.  

Q. How did you get started with API Technologies?

A. I started with API Technologies back in 2009 when we were Sage Laboratories. I had worked with Mike Wisner (Director of Sales) at Huber & Suhner in the 1990s and early 2000s. I have been in my current role as Product Line Manager for a little over 3 years. 

Q. What are some fun facts about you?

A. I am a twin-- I have an identical twin sister, and before you ask she is 6 minutes older. I used to own a video rental store, so I am usually a great choice for trivia night! I've been commissioner in my fantasy football league for over a decade, so I am obviously a big football fan. I also really enjoy hockey. 

Q. What API product are you most proud of?

A. I’ve been very proud of the success we’ve had with our Switched Multiplexer with Integrated LNA. It’s been very well received in the market place and we’ve had great success customizing this filter to specific applications. 

Q. What’s coming up in 2015?

A. I am really excited about the improvements we're making to our flagship IFM (Instantaneous Frequency Measurement) product (FDFD7409-2), as well as a the introduction of an expanded digital offering.

12 Days of Products: Standard Switched Filter Banks

by Jaymie Murray 22. December 2014 10:10

This holiday season is a good reminder that reducing costs is never a bad thing. API’s standard switched filter banks (310-020050-XXX series) offer customer-defined passband frequencies from 20 MHz to 7500 MHz with 2-7 channels, featuring the same high performance of a custom designed switched filter at a reduced cost. Cost reduction is achieved by using common switch manifolds and machined parts that are populated with custom filters. The filter banks are ideal for a wide range of applications where low cost and high performance are required.

Design a switched filter bank customized to your specifications, consult an engineer, or request a quote.

Space Week: Space Dangers and How API Mitigates Them

by Jaymie Murray 11. December 2014 09:27

Space is a less than hospitable place, and products used in space applications must be made to withstand extreme conditions. Radiation, severe temperature fluctuations, and storms of micrometeors and man-made debris are just a few of the dangers that exist in space. That is why API's RF/microwave and microelectronics products are space-qualified and tested to MIL-PRF-38534 Class K standards, ensuring high-reliability in mission-critical situations.
