API Technologies Releases Smallest Hermetically Sealed SOIC 1553 Data Bus Transceiver

RONKONKOMA, NY — JULY 14, 2010 — API Technologies Corp. (ATNY.OB) ("API" or the "Company"), a provider of highly engineered products and services to the global defense sector, announced today the availability of the smallest hermetically sealed ceramic Dual 1553 Data Bus Transceiver. The NHi-1565 SOIC, which is also available in MacAir, is the newest addition to the National Hybrid (NHi) product line.

“These are the smallest, fully-compliant 1553 data bus transceivers in a ceramic SOIC package on the market today,” said Arnie Markowitz, Vice President and General Manager of API’s Components and Subsystems division. “Because they are hermetically sealed, they are air-tight, making them ideally suited for rugged environments.”

The NHi-1565 SOIC comes in a standard 5V or a low voltage 3.3V version. It measures .275 x .504 x .095 inches, and is available in a full military temperature range of -55C to +125C.

API also announced today that the previously released 7mm dual transceiver in a plastic package from NHi is also now available to meet MacAir specifications. The 7mm has a significantly smaller footprint than a standard 20 pin package.
