API Nanotronics and Pulse Introduces World's Smallest 1553 Data Bus

Published on August 13, 2009 at 8:46 PM

API Nanotronics Corp. (OTCBB: APIA) ("API" or the "Company"), a leading supplier of electronic systems and sub-systems, components, encryption, secure communications, nano-optics and nanotechnology products to the aerospace, defense and communications sectors today announced that its National Hybrid division (NHI) in collaboration with an industry partner, Pulse, a Technitrol company, have introduced Bus+™, the world's smallest 1553 data bus transceiver/transformer integrated into a single package.

Avionics and defense contractors require the best and most reliable components for their products, with miniaturization being a key characteristic, especially in air-borne applications. NHI and Pulse are proven leaders in the design and manufacture of components for MIL-STD-1553 data bus applications. As aircraft and remotely commanded vehicles become more sophisticated and capable, component manufacturers must respond with solutions that allow more functionality to be integrated into an ever-diminishing piece of board real-estate. This must be done through the use of high-technology miniaturization, allowing components to do more, in smaller formats that consume less power. NHI and Pulse have responded to this challenge by integrating the MIL-STD-1553 transceiver and transformer in a single package: the Bus+ offers customers superior flexibility and functionality in a low-power-consumption, small footprint package.

Stephen B. Pudles, Chief Executive Officer of API Nanotronics Inc., said, "1553 Data bus offers great opportunity for innovative companies. We are responding to market needs and developing new products for our customers. NHI recently partnered with Sital Technologies to develop Aries™, a superior 1553 data bus Terminal solution with an industry leading IP core. We have now partnered with Pulse, a world leader in miniature transformer design to offer customers Bus+. We are proud of this collaboration and have high expectations for this product."

"Pulse has partnered with NHI, a world class leader in MIL-STD-1553 data bus technology, to develop an integrated transceiver/transformer that allows avionics designers a higher level of design flexibility. By merging what has traditionally been two separate board level products into one, Bus+ will offer a truly innovative product utilizing the latest in manufacturing technologies to achieve higher levels of reliability and performance than what has been offered to industry in the past," explained Estro Vitantonio, General Manager of the Pulse Military/Aerospace Division.
