SYRACUSE, N.Y., Dec. 17, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anaren, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANEN) announced today that it has added two new members to its fast-growing line of Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) modules. In order to meet operating demands and compliance requirements specific to the European market, the AIR line now includes ETSI-compliant models A1101R08A (embedded antenna) and A1101R08C (connectorized). Like all AIR modules, the new units offer the simplicity, cost-savings, and fast time-to-market advantages of an all-in-one, plug and play radio...with no extensive RF experience required.

"Just like customers in the North American market who are benefiting from AIR modules' pre-certification to FCC standards, customers entering or operating low-power RF in Europe now have an ETSI-compliant option," says Mark Bowyer, business development manager for AIR with Anaren's Wireless Group. "If used as specified, they can deploy these new modules on board European-targeted end products without any additional EN 300 328, EN 300 440, or EN 300 489 testing required. AIR modules arrive ETSI compliant right on the reel."                                                     

As for the AIR product family in general, Anaren's solution is an elegant, 'plug and play' RF solution – each module's footprint being smaller than a postage stamp – for electronic engineers challenged with adding wireless capability to new or existing devices. Applications for AIR modules range from industrial control, building automation, and low-power sensor networks – to lighting and equipment and appliances intended for inclusion in smart-grid scenarios (e.g. automated meter reading).

Leveraging Anaren's 40+ years in microwave/RF technology and Texas Instruments' renowned semiconductor technology, the AIR module product family offers:
