SDP, as a company dedicated to development of RF Microwave technologies, is
announcing its commitment to the expanding wireless infrastructure industry by
investing heavily in equipment for its R&D facilities. This will extend SDP’s support
capabilities far beyond the 40 GHz range, now covering the frequency spectrum up to
110 GHz. This initiative is in recognition of increasing customer inquiries for
components in these higher frequency bands, dedicated to wireless backhaul
applications. SDP anticipates exponential growth in markets where higher bandwidth
requirements from emerging 3G and 4G LTE deployment as well as from mature
markets where new bandwidth hungry services are saturating existing backhaul links.
This investment will be directed to test equipment such as Vector Network Analyzers
(VNA’s), Spectrum Analyzers, and signal sources, required to develop a new family of
millimeter products. SDP’s R&D facilities are centered in it’s Montreal headquarters,
with satellite R&D centers in Suzhou-China and their newest state of the art facility in
Chennai-India (scheduled to open April 2010).

SDP welcomes inquiries from customers for E band and higher frequency applications;
