SYRACUSE, N.Y., Jan. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anaren, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANEN) announced today that it will be marketing its new family of Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) modules with electronics distributor RS Components (RS), headquartered in Oxford, UK. The initiative is Anaren's first partnering opportunity with RS and is expected to provide AIR customers with a valuable new sourcing and support option.

"Anaren is pleased to have its new AIR product line on the RS line card," said Mark Bowyer, the business development manager in Anaren's Wireless Group responsible for the AIR line. "We are especially enthusiastic about the possibilities of supporting AIR, given RS' renowned ability to service rush orders and help customers through their new DesignSpark online support community."

Bowyer added that "the alliance with RS widens Anaren's array of both service-intensive online and brick-and-mortar distribution partners."

Fred Knowles, Global Head of Product Management—Electronics at RS Components said: "We are delighted to be adding Anaren's family of Integrated Radio (AIR) modules to our stock. The introduction underlines our commitment to provide customers with the most comprehensive selection of parts across the entire spectrum of electronics products from top suppliers worldwide."

As for the AIR product family itself, this recently introduced product line from Anaren provides an elegant, 'plug and play' RF solution — with each module's footprint being smaller than a postage stamp — to 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, equipment, and appliances intended for inclusion in smart-grid and energy-management scenarios (e.g. automated meter reading, devices and equipment intended for ZigBee® Standard applications, etc.).

E-OEM design engineers interested in learning more or securing applications assistance are encouraged to contact Anaren or any authorized AIR module distributor (see website for current listing).
