April 27, 2012|
Like many other small and large companies, the recession that began near the end of 2008 had a major impact on Pegasus Technologies. One of
the more devastating blows was the sale and eventual bankruptcy of one of our major clients during the recession. We were finally
forced to RIF two of our employees in early 2010 -- a hard time, as our employees are like family -- but afterwards things did begin to pick up a bit. We have acquired several
new major clients, have developed a couple of new wireless modules that can be incorporated into OEM designs, and have
completed a number of designs for other clients that are now in production. Most exciting,we have developed expertise in designing and
producing High Frequency (HF) and Very High Frequency (VHF) driver amplifiers and control
panels for cyclotrons used in physics experiments and in the production of medical radioactive isotopes. Our designs are in use around the globe!
For more information about our work on cyclotrons, please see our Cyclotron Page.
So, we are proud that we have weathered the storm and are still here to provide top-quality RF design expertise in a number of areas. Give
us a call -- you'll be glad you did!

Bira Goes to Chicago
How can you keep 'em down on the farm? We are both pleased and sorry to announce that Bira Dhillon has taken a
position with Motorola in Chicago and has left Pegasus Technologies effective the end of 2007. Since starting work
here right after graduation, she has learned a tremendous amount and we will miss her expertise in digital design,
primarily VHDL design for FPGAs. She finished up all her ongoing projects before leaving, and left everything so
well documented that transition has been a snap. Thank you, Bira, and best wishes in the big city!

Goodbye to Brad
We are both happy and sad to announce that Brad Duncan, our Senior Firmware Engineer, will be
leaving us to devote full time to his own business. Brad was the first Pegasus Tech employee other than Jim Pearce,
our President, and has been with us since 2002. For several years, Brad has also operated (on a part-time basis)
Educational Outfitters Knoxville, a franchise company offering school apparel and general machine embroidery services.
The business has grown by leaps and bounds since Brad took it over, and the time came when he had to make a decision
to sell it or to work there full time. Brad will continue work with Pegasus as an associate on an as-needed basis
when his schedule permits.
We'll miss you, Brad, but we wish you all the best in your business!

RF Module News
After an extremely busy winter and spring, we've made some major changes to our RF module lineup.
Most importantly, we've slashed our prices again, and are grateful to all our customers who have
made this possible. Also, for those of you looking for a low-power version of the PTSS2003, we've
added two new modules that may just fit the bill. These modules offer exceptional battery life and
ultra-cool operation, with 10 mw output power. Available in an FCC-certified 902-928 MHz version and
an ETSI-tested 868 MHz version, we've just completed the final testing and are ready to go with your
orders. At the same time, we have discontinued carrying the PTRF modules. For those of you looking for
a 433 MHz version, one is under development, but we don't have an availability date established yet.
As always, if you would like some help customizing one
of our modules or would prefer a custom design, please contact us
and we'll be more than happy to discuss the details of your project with you.

We've just added a secure Shopping Cart to our RF products page. With
this new feature, you can purchase our RF modules and accessories quickly and efficiently. We can
accept either Mastercard or Visa in a secure environment. Now you can make purchases without the
trouble and inconvenience of trying to catch one of us on the phone and dealing with wire transfers, COD
checks, or prepayment worries! Of course, if you have questions or want to discussing customizing one
of our modules, please contact us and we'll be more than happy to discuss
the details of your project with you.

Canadian Certification on the PTSS2003
The PTSS2003 is now certified for Canada! On July 25,
Industry Canada awarded the PTSS2003 approval number 4635A-12240. This means that
an OEM who integrates these modules into their products will not need to do
"intentional emitter" testing for the Canadian market. The PTSS was earlier
granted FCC modular certification. Currently, PTSS2003 modules are only available in
the 902-928 MHz band, but models for the 866 and 433 MHz frequencies are under development.
The PTSS2003 is only 1.7" x 1.5" x .35"

Meet our Lead Firmware Engineer
Pegasus Technologies, Inc. extends a warm welcome to our newest employee, Brad Duncan.
Brad has a wide range of experience in embedded systems
programming, ASIC design, digital logic design, and programming. Brad also has quite a
bit of experience and training in Lab View® programming. This was interesting to
us, but we didn't think this particular experience would be used much at Pegasus Tech.
Then, on a Wednesday afternoon not long ago, our President, Jim Pearce, was talking with a
client. The client was harried because he was trying to finish up a Lab View® program
that he needed to run a demonstration at a trade show the next day, and he was having trouble
getting the program to work. Jim remembered Brad's experience with this software, and mentioned
it to the client. "Can you send him over?" was the response.
Luckily, the client was only a 40 minute drive away -- so we could, and we did. By 8:00 p.m., Brad
had found and fixed the client's Lab View® problems. The client was relieved and happy to get
the demonstration ready for performance the next day.
Pegasus Tech may not always be able to save the day as dramatically as this, but we will sure try.
If you have RF or wireless designs that need to be developed or fixed, or Lab View® programming
please give us a call at 865-717-9339 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org today!

Pegasus Technologies Incorporates
We are pleased to announce that, as of August 14, 2002, Pegasus Technologies is now
Pegasus Technologies, Inc. Formerly, we were a division of Pegasus Consulting Corporation, but as we
have continued to grow, it seemed more appropriate that we "spin off" our RF design and
consulting services into a separate company. Pegasus Technologies, Inc. will continue to provide
expertise in RF, wireless, and advanced electronic design to our clients. In addition, we plan
to begin selling our own RF modules soon, using the outstanding new Xemics XE1202 RF transceiver chip.
Look for an announcement on this in the near future!
Meanwhile, Pegasus Consulting Corporation will continue to provide webmastering services for both Pegasus
Technologies and for SSS Online, the entity that owns this website, as well as offering consulting services
in safety management systems, procedures and standards management, technical editing, training, and related areas.
