QUINTECH ANNOUNCES RF ENGINEERING AND COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH CENTER AT UPARC
Quintech Electronics and Communications, Inc., an Indiana, PA based manufacturer of RF (Radio Frequency) signal management and matrix switching equipment for the broadcasting and communications industry, announced today that it has established an R&D office at the UPARC campus in Harmar, PA.
The purpose of the new office will be to move the Company’s Research and Development activities closer to engineering and technological talent available in the greater Pittsburgh area. The Company looks to expand relationships with knowledge and educational institutions such as the University of Pittsburgh, CMU, Penn State New Kensington and Indiana University of Pennsylvania, North Pointe campus. These institutions, along with other technology companies may desire to collaborate with the Company in its efforts to expand its global presence in RF signal management solutions. The Company will actively pursue opportunities in emerging next generation wireless communications and optical networking markets.
“While we are pleased with our present locations for production and basic engineering operations, we felt the need to move closer to the Pittsburgh area “, said G. Daniel Prushnok, President and CEO of the electronics company.
“The growth of the Internet and the sudden increase in content distribution technologies has made Quintech a collaborative RF solutions provider to the telecommunications industry” he added.
“In order to facilitate the collaborative engineering and training necessary to develop cutting edge RF products global customers will demand, Quintech needs to reach out to the intellectual capital resources it requires and attract new and diverse engineering talent from the Pittsburgh market”.
Prushnok said that the Company occupied space in September of 2007 and has committed significant R&D investments to establish what he envisions will be a collaborative RF center of engineering excellence that will attract other communications and related high technology businesses to the region.
SSE & Quintech Collaborate On New LNB Redundancy Solution
INDIANA, PA, January 30, 2007 — Superior Satellite Engineers (SSE) and Quintech Electronics have collaborated to design a cost-effective new LNB redundancy solution for satellite antennas with prime focus feed systems. Previously, LNB redundancy has only been available for an antenna with sub-reflectors and LNB’s mounted at the back of the antenna hub. This option has always been prohibitively expensive for most users. The new SSE/Quintech LNB Redundancy solutions are comprised of the RSP 2150 Redundancy Switch, which supports a backup antenna, and SSE’s Parallel Feed System Solution. The Parallel Feed System Solution uses a single antenna with a motorized feed horn platform that enables a backup feed horn and LNB’s in case of LNB or Power Module failure of the primary feed horn. The RSP 2150 Redundancy Switch senses a reduction in RF energy below a preset threshold and commands the backup switching sequence. Dual, parallel DC Power Supplies provide redundant power and are “hot-swappable”, enabling PSU maintenance without taking the system off line.
This new redundancy switch marks the second major joint-venture between SSE and Quintech. The two companies will be co-exhibiting at Satellite 2007 (Booth #449).
Superior Satellite Engineers (SSE) provides proprietary Feed Systems and complete satellite antenna systems for a variety of CATV, Broadcast TV, IPTV and DOD applications. SSE has been an integral part of the communications community for twenty five years.
INDIANA, PA, January 30, 2006 – Quintech Electronics, a world leader in RF signal management products, announces that it has achieved certification of its quality management system to the ISO 9001:2000 standard.
