Anaren and Emmoco Partner to Develop New AIR Support for BLE Solution

As Guest Suppliers at the Premier-Farnell Booth at Embedded World 2013 (Hall
5, Booth # 220; Nuremberg, Germany; February 26-28) -- Anaren and Emmoco Will
Establish a Pool of "Beta-Testers" for Their Jointly Developed AIR Support for
BLE Solution

SYRACUSE, N.Y., Feb. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anaren, Inc. (Nasdaq:ANEN)
today announced that its Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) module team is
partnering with Austin, Texas-based middleware developer Emmoco to create the
AIR Support for BLE solution. As a guest supplier at the Premier-Farnell booth
(#220, Hall 5) in the Embedded World 2013 exhibition, the AIR team will be
explaining its technology concept for fast-emerging Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
applications – and will also be actively developing a pool for "beta-testers"
for the upcoming AIR Support for BLE solution, which is scheduled for release
in the spring/summer of 2013. As is the case with all AIR modules, this latest
model in the AIR product family is based on Texas Instruments technology, in
this case TI's C2541 SoC.

"The decision to work with Emmoco on an AIR solution for BLE is both a
cultural and strategic one for us," said Anaren's Corporate Business
Development Manager, Mark Bowyer. "On one hand, Emmoco is a fit for us because
of their robust experience in the BLE environment and because they share our
philosophy of doing what it takes to ensure the customer has a positive
experience. On the other, we share with Emmoco a commitment to simplifying
what can be a daunting technology challenge. As we did with our AIR solution
for ZigBee applications, the goal we've again established here is to take the
RF guesswork and learning curve out of the equation, simplify the firmware and
middleware aspects of the job, and, ultimately, to make it a cinch to put the
resulting, modularized solution down on the board for the production phase."

Also on hand and being demo'd at the Anaren pod in the Premier-Farnell booth
will be Anaren's recently launched AIR Solution for ZigBee® standard
applications, which includes Anaren's ZigBee oriented CC2530-based AIR modules
(part number: A2530x24x), development tools like the new CC2530 BoosterPack
kit (part number A2530x24A-LPZ) used in conjunction with TI's MSP430™ and
Stellaris® LaunchPad kits, and Anaren's unique AIR-ZNP firmware solution
jointly developed with San Diego, CA-based Tesla Controls.
