    • Introduction to Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) modules
    • Anaren, Inc.• RF / microwave technology• Founded in 1967• $160M revenues• Approx 900 employees• Public (Nasdaq: ANEN)• 33 consecutive profitable quarters• 5 Global Mfg Sites – Over 375,000 sq. ft. – Syracuse and Liverpool, NY – Salem, NH – Littleton, CO – Suzhou, China – Camarillo, CA*• 5 Global Sales Offices
    • What is AIR?Anaren Integrated Radio• New, broad-market product line• Based on Texas Instruments low-power RF product line• Complete modules with all RF• Certified to FCC/IC & compliant w/ ETSI as applicable• Includes AIR Support total solution - development, application & production support• Available in small, medium & large volumes• Stocked at major, global distributors
    • What AIR is not• Bluetooth®• WiFi• High-power consuming• Mb/s data rates• Video streaming• An NRE-based product• Less than the sum of its parts
    • Why AIR?We know RF… so you don’t have to!• Reduces risk• Reduces engineering time• Reduces time-to-market• Reduces carrying-board complexity• Reduces BOM / sourcing workload• Reduces certification costs• Produced by high-volume manufacturer• Based fully on Texas Instruments• Reasonably priced
    • When to use AIR?• Low-power, battery operated• Command / control applications• High-quality audio applications• Data Rates < 250Kb/s• Listen Better, not talk louder• Distances < 1,000 ft.• Industrial environments
