Free Wi-Fi Blankets San Francisco's Marina District

AnchorFree Wireless has announced the launch of a free wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) hotzone in the heart of San Francisco’s prestigious Marina district. Consumers can access the Internet wirelessly at no cost indoors and outdoors on a 4-block region of Chestnut Street.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 28, 2022 -- Last year, in his state of the city address, Mayor Gavin Newsom said, “We will not stop until every San Franciscan has access to free wireless Internet service.”

“AnchorFree is pioneering Mayor Newsom’s vision of free wireless Internet service for every San Franciscan”, said David Gorodyansky, President of AnchorFree Wireless. “Today San Franciscans have the freedom to use our free wireless Internet service in the heart of the Marina district.”

The Wi-Fi hotzone is located along Chestnut street, the commercial portion of the Marina district, which has numerous restaurants and cafes. Free wireless Internet service is available along Chestnut Street indoors and outdoors between Fillmore and Scott Streets. Users can access the free service using wireless enabled laptops and PDAs.

To view a map of the Marina district hotzone, please visit http://www.prweb.com/prfiles/2005/02/04/205822/ChestnutMap.jpg

In May of 2004, AnchorFree launched a Wi-Fi hotzone in downtown Palo Alto, California. The Marina district Wi-Fi hotzone is located approximately 30 miles from the downtown Palo Alto hotzone.

AnchorFree is actively seeking sponsors to offset the cost of maintaining free Wi-Fi in the heart of the Marina district.

About Us
Headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, Co-founders David Gorodyanksy and Eugene Malobrodsky had a clear vision in 2003: to give consumers an affordable and widespread way to access the Internet outside of their homes and offices. Company President David Gorodyanksy and AnchorFree Wireless have been featured in over 15 media publications. For further information, please visit www.anchorfree.com

The Bus Doctor software application provides you with high-level dialogs that allow you to create very powerful triggers within moments by selecting options from pull-down lists and other click-able selections. You may also create custom triggers by using our 12 level trigger sequencer. For each level of the sequencer you may select from high level options or down to signal-level detail. The sequencer includes two timers and two counter levels.

Bus Doctor analyzers can capture up to 256 million events in their dedicated trace buffers. You may partition the buffer into segments to work with multiple traces in the buffer at the same time.

The Bus Doctor's advanced core technology tailors the software and hardware to whichever bus pod is attached to provide you with the display, decode, filtering, triggering, and analysis tools necessary for the specific protocol. For more information on the Bus Doctor go to: http://www.protocoltools.com/busdoctor

Printed Circuit Board and Schematic Design Compare Software for OrCAD, Allegro, Mentor and other EDA Tools Now Available in Switzerland

Logmatic AG Appointed as Representative for DOCTAR Design Compare Software that reports schematic, netlist and PCB design changes for Cadence, OrCAD, Mentor, Viewlogic and other EDA tools.

BEDFORD, NH (PRWEB) February 25, 2022 -- cadalist-enterprises, LLC has announced the appointment of Logmatic AG of Niederrohrdorf, Switzerland to sell and support the DOCTAR design and netlist compare software in Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

The DOCTAR software automates the process of checking changes to design schematics and layouts, which many companies still do manually or not at all. DOCTAR saves time and prevents unintended changes from slipping through to manufacturing, where changes are more expensive in terms of scrapped or reworked boards, fixture reworks, and missed schedules.

"Logmatics is a highly-respected EDA firm with great technical expertise and are well known within the Swiss design community." says Matt Van Wagner, Director of Sales and Marketing for cadalist-enterprises. "We are extremely pleased Logmatics will represent our tools to their important customers."

"Doctar will increase the productivity of our customers since unintended changes in their designs will be prevented. Doctar identifies potential problems and makes fixture rework unnecessary resulting in a shorter design cycle and higher quality of the design.” says Peter Wannenmacher, Vice President of marketing for Logmatic AG.

DOCTAR compares schematic, netlist or layout files, to report what's changed such as pin connectivity; components moved, renamed, rotated, added or deleted; tolerances, values, net-routed etch lengths and testpoints moved, added, deleted, or reprogrammed.

The DOCTAR change reports are used by schematic and layout engineers, test and manufacturing engineers, hardware project managers and ECO documentation specialists for design reviews, documentation, and validating changes made by outside layout service bureaus. DOCTAR is being used at hundreds of companies worldwide including Alcatel, Intel, Motorola, Cisco, Thales, Voltaire, and others.

DOCTAR works with design files from Allegro, Cadence, GenCAD, Mentor, Orcad, P-CAD, PADS, PowerPCB, and Viewlogic. Reports are generated in HTML and Excel formats with high-level summaries and detailed reporting to component/net/testpoint levels. DOCTAR software runs under Windows 2000/XP operating systems.

Electrically Conductive Materials for Pad Printing Now Available from Creative Materials Inc.

Applications include medical device and electronics manufacturing.

Tyngsboro, MA (PRWEB) February 24, 2022 -- Creative Materials Inc., a leading manufacturer of electrically conductive inks, coatings and adhesives, has announced the availability of new electrically conductive materials for use in pad printing applications. Pad printing is an innovative printing technology that makes it possible to print on curved, uneven or recessed surfaces, while producing a high quality ink transfer.

Asked why pad printing was better, Silvio Morano, President of Creative Materials explained, “Pad printing has been around for a long time, and was used primarily for decorative purposes; for instance, logos on bottle caps or labels on golf balls. This flexible printing process allows you to go around corners, into concave surfaces, or to print on convex surfaces.”

“With our products, you can now put an electrical circuit on many 3-D objects, not just circuit boards,” said Morano. “With pad printing, our customers can print finer lines at closer tolerances and with closer gaps between the lines. We’ve been able to do 4 mil (0.1 mm) lines with 4 mil (0.1 mm) spaces. So if somebody is developing a unique electronic device, perhaps something very compact, they are no longer limited by the need to have flat circuit board. They could print a circuit on a tube or a curved surface that fits more compactly into their device.”

Creative Materials makes a wide variety of electrically conductive inks for multiple applications. Some can be pad printed. Some inks are available in multiple formats for screen printing, pad printing, syringe dispensing, stenciling, or rotogravure printing (flexography).

“The thing that separates us from our competitors and makes us different is our customer service and our custom formulations. We have the unique ability to tailor our materials to meet the specific needs of the customer and we are able to provide technical support for a new application,” said Morano. “We have a broad base of existing materials that cover multiple applications and manufacturing techniques.”

About Creative Materials, Inc.
Creative Materials, Inc. develops and markets specialty chemical products to customers world-wide. Founded in 1986, Creative Materials has its headquarters and production facilities in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts. Products from Creative Materials are used to manufacture electronic components for automobiles, computers, keyboards, and cell phones; medical electrodes and medical instruments; heating equipment; and aerospace devices. Creative Materials offers more than 1000 product formulations, and is ISO 9001 certified. For additional information please visit http://www.creativematerials.com

Lyra Research Projects Worldwide Digital Camera Shipments Will Exceed 100 Million Units in 2008

In 2004 Europe surpassed the United States in camera unit shipments

NEWTONVILLE, MA (PRWEB) February 24, 2022 -- Coinciding with this year’s Photo Marketing Association (PMA) show in Orlando, FL, Lyra Research’s Digital Photography Advisory Service has issued its worldwide digital camera forecast. Digital still camera shipments surpassed 63 million units worldwide in 2004, up more than 35 percent compared with 2003. Worldwide digital still camera shipments will surpass 100 million units in 2008

In 2004, for the first time ever, Europe became the largest market in terms of unit shipments, taking the top spot from the United States, which is now second in terms of shipments. Japan is the third-largest market.

The 3-megapixel category remained the most popular digital camera segment in 2004, but shipments are increasing in the 4-, 5-, and 6-megapixel segments. Most point-and-shoot cameras now shipping are 4- and 5-megapixel models, and Lyra expects that, by 2005, 5+-megapixel cameras will account for more worldwide shipments than any other segment.

“The desire to produce prints from digital cameras is now a key factor in the consumer purchase decision. Many new camera buyers do not go to the store looking just for a digital camera—they are looking for a total photographic solution,” says Robert Palmer, director of Lyra’s Digital Photography Advisory Service. Camera and printer bundles proved very popular last year, and Lyra expects these solutions to gain further momentum in 2005. “Explosive growth in digital camera sales will fuel the market for photographic prints,” says Palmer. “More than 18 billion prints were produced from digital camera images in 2004, two-thirds of which were produced in the home.”

Lyra Research’s Digital Photography Advisory Service (DPS) is an online competitive research tool for marketing and product managers in the digital camera, photo-quality printer, and online photo-service industries. The DPS provides the advice and insight necessary to tap into the possibilities of today’s digital imaging market.

New Nitrogen UltraFill Nozzles Delivers Solution to Overcome Challenges of Lead-Free Soldering

Speedline Technologies has introduced its new UltraFill™ Lead-Free Nozzles – featuring an innovative technology and design to enable electronic manufacturers to overcome a variety of process challenges inherent in lead-free wave soldering.

Franklin, MA (PRWEB) February 23, 2022 -- Speedline Technologies has introduced its new UltraFill™ Lead-Free Nozzles – featuring an innovative technology and design to enable electronic manufacturers to overcome a variety of process challenges inherent in lead-free wave soldering.

“Soldering with lead-free alloys requires manufacturers to answer a host of new and formidable process challenges – ranging from slower wetting times to more viscous flow characteristics to higher temperatures,” said Keith Howell, Wave Solder Product Manager. “Speedline’s new UltraFill nozzles provide the solution – and deliver both improved process performance and product quality.”

Speedline’s new UltraFill nozzles feature an innovative new design and technology. The nozzles are 40% wider than traditional tin/lead nozzles to increase contact length and dwell time. The nozzles are also placed closer together to reduce the temperature drop between the nozzles – so that less heat is needed to reflow solder joints in the second wave. As a result, UltraFill nozzles deliver better hole fill without requiring a slowing of the conveyor, while reducing bridge defects and dross production.

A Nitrogen shroud is available as an option – and allows for either air or nitrogen operation, as determined by the desired recipe, without the need to change nozzles. The shroud both encompasses the nozzles in the pot and contains the dross in the solder pot. The shroud lifts for easy maintenance and dedrossing – without nozzle removal.

Recent applications have shown UltraFill nozzles enhance both product quality and process performance – ranging from the elimination of the need for touch-up of poor hole fills to dramatic reductions in bridges/solder shorts.

The new UltraFill Lead-Free Nozzles are available an option on the Vectra™ and Electra® wave soldering systems or as an upgrade to existing, installed equipment. The nozzles are compatible with the Omega™ wave and the Debridging Airknife.

Speedline Technologies officially introduced its new new UltraFill Lead-Free Nozzles at the APEX 2005 Expo, held February 22-24, 2005, in Anaheim, Calif. The system is available immediately from Speedline distributors and representatives.

nCipher Selects XJTAG for Boundary Scan Test Solution

XJTAG selected ahead of competition due to its price, reusability of scripts, speed of test development and real-time support. XJTAG utilised to test and debug PCBs for nCipher’s hardware security modules. nCipher’s contract manufacturing partner (Hansatech) using XJTAG for testing production boards.

CAMBRIDGE, England (PRWEB) February 23, 2022 -- XJTAG Limited (www.xjtag.com), a specialist test tool developer and part of the Cambridge Technology Group, has been selected by nCipher, a leading provider of IT security solutions, to provide a boundary scan test system to test and debug the printed circuit boards (PCBs) for their hardware security modules.

nCipher has licensed the XJTAG boundary scan development system for use by its engineering team at its headquarters in Cambridge, England, where its range of hardware security modules (HSMs) are designed and developed. The XJTAG System will also be used by nCipher’s contract manufacturing partner, Hansatech, for testing production boards.

“We started looking at boundary scan solutions in mid 2004. The constant drive for product improvement forces our circuit boards to become ever smaller and by using Ball Grid Arrays (BGAs) and other JTAG-compliant devices we are able to mount more complicated devices onto the circuit board. The connectivity and manufacturing of these more densely populated boards are difficult to test by traditional methods,” said Colin Domoney, digital hardware design engineer at nCipher.

“We opted for the XJTAG Development System as it offered us a best practice solution for testing our boards, allowing nCipher to better manage production costs and ensure a more reliable end product. XJTAG was also half the price of the nearest alternative whilst still offering all the features we required.”

nCipher provides hardware and software solutions that enable organisations to implement best practice IT security by addressing the technical challenges of using encryption. Many of the world's leading organisations - from Microsoft and Barclays Bank to PricewaterhouseCoopers and the U.S. Navy - rely on nCipher to help deploy a sound e-security infrastructure.

nCipher's products are particularly well suited to organisations with high volumes of security-sensitive transactions, such as banking and financial institutions, government departments, e-retailers and online service providers. nCipher’s HSMs support IT security industry encryption standards and protect the cryptographic keys that must remain an absolute secret for encryption to have any benefit.

“As the IT security market continues to develop, we need to constantly re-engineer our products to introduce the very latest technology,” added Colin Domoney. “With XJTAG, we have a modern, flexible solution that can test a high proportion of the circuit including JTAG and non-JTAG devices. It enables us to test and debug our boards in days as opposed to weeks, run connection tests and port device-centric test scripts across different products ­ saving valuable development time. XJTAG also allows us to test and program flash chips in a fraction of the time it took us previously.”

To ensure that the benefits afforded by XJTAG are available through the prototyping stage and into production, nCipher has licensed XJRunner ­ a production-optimised version of the XJTAG System minus the development capability ­ for use by its contract manufacturing partner, Hansatech, at its facility at King's Lynn, England.

Tim Murrell, senior electronics engineer for Hansatech Limited, who is based at the King’s Lynn facility, said: “XJTAG represents the biggest single step in test diagnostics that I have seen in years. It is an extremely versatile and flexible boundary scan solution, which, unlike some JTAG test products, integrates seamlessly with other test equipment. It will enable us to significantly improve the yield for the nCipher HSM prototype batches and early production runs. There is also considerable interest from our other customers ­ particularly those that are manufacturing densely packed circuit boards populated with flip chips, ball grid array and chip scale devices.”

The powerful and easy-to-use XJTAG Development System is designed to cut the cost and shorten the development cycle of electronic products and provides a unique solution that can test JTAG as well as non-JTAG devices. XJTAG can test a high proportion of a circuit including BGA and chip scale devices, SDRAMs, Ethernet controllers, video interfaces, flash memories, FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays), microprocessors and many other devices. XJTAG also enables In-System Programming of FPGAs, CPLDs (Complex Programmable Logic Devices) and flash memories.

The XJTAG Development System provides a fully integrated environment, which can migrate seamlessly through the product life cycle from early design to field support and repair. XJTAG enables circuit designers to shorten the development cycle and prototyping process by facilitating early test development, early design validation of CAD netlists, fast generation of highly functional tests and test re-use across circuits that utilise the same devices. XJTAG test scripts are also re-usable and portable across different boards due to the novel device-centric approach that the designers have adopted.

Single-Channel Signal Conditioner Supports LVDT, RVDT or VRT Half-Bridge Sensors

Macro Sensors, a manufacturer of LVDTs, RVDTs and related instrumentation, introduces a new single-channel DIN-rail mounted modular signal condition that supports LVDT, RVDT or half-bridge inductive sensors.

(PRWEB) February 23, 2022 -- Designed for out-of-the-box use, the LVC-2412 signal conditioner can be specified to work from either 24V DC for operation with systems using PLCs or mini-PLCs or from 12V for use in mobile and vehicular testing systems. Units offer a choice of three analog outputs: 0 to +10V DC, 0 to 10V DC or 4 to 20 mA current loop.

Unlike most other low voltage DC-operated LVDT signal conditioners, the DC input power of the LVC-2412 is isolated from its analog outputs, which allows the unit to be connected in either a 4-wire fully isolated I/O configuration or in a 3-wire common ground system.

The LVC-2412 is packaged in a DIN-rail mounting thermoplastic case with recessed screw-clamp terminals for all connections and 20-turn, front-panel accessible span and zero adjustments. Movable coarse gain jumpers allow units to operate over an LVDT full scale output signal range greater than 50 to 1. The external zero control permits output offset adjustment from – 100% to +100% of full scale output.

“The wide spread adoption of cell phones means that almost everyone holds a smart device that can be used for remote security and keyless entry,” said Sergey Ost, CEO of Cellbris. “UniSwitch creates a cell phone remote control that replaces the smart ID card, the smart card reader and even the remote control, all at the same time. A single UniSwitch device can manage up to 2000 users, offering enormous savings.”

UniSwitch is simple and easy to use. The device is connected to the switch for a gate, door or other device and operates by receiving calls from mobile phones which act as remote controls. The cell phone remote control works two ways. First, it acts as a keyless entry device by activating doors and gates. Secondly, UniSwitch acts in the place of a smart ID card because users can be identified by their cell phones via caller ID. This feature alone represents an enormous cost savings over other remote security systems.

UniSwitch Has Two Security Options:
- Basic: Any user dials and UniSwitch opens the gate/door without answering the call.
- Advanced: Once authorized users are identified via caller ID, UniSwitch opens the gate/door without answering the call if user is authorized.

Access Can Be Managed Through UniSwitch
UniSwitch enables access to be restricted to certain groups and certain times of day. For example, certain user groups can be granted access between 9 AM to 5 PM on weekdays only.

UniSwitch’s Integrated Alert System
UniSwitch includes integrated notification capabilities that can be used to send SMS alerts when certain events take place. For example, it can be programmed to send an alert to security personnel in the event of a failed access attempt whether during business hours or after hours.

At Taiwan Kolin's annual Product Preview Summit, Syntax Groups announces strategic plans to ship more than 300,000 Olevia high definition LCD TVs and approximately 20,000 LCOS TVs in 2005, more than tripling Syntax’s volume in 2004

Taipei, Taiwan (PRWEB) February 22, 2022 -- Syntax Groups Corporation(tm), manufacturer of the high-quality, affordable Olevia(tm) brand of widescreen HDTV-ready LCD TVs, today announced its strategic plans to ship more than 300,000 Olevia high definition LCD TVs and approximately 20,000 LCOS TVs in 2005, more than tripling Syntax’s volume in 2004

Syntax will address industry executives from all segments of the LCD TV and LCOS TV manufacturing supply chain at this week’s Taiwan Kolin Company (TSE:1606.TW) Annual Product Preview Summit held at the Ambassador Hotel in Taipei. Leveraging the Olevia brand’s current visibility in the 20-inch, 27-inch and 30-inch LCD TV sector, Syntax sees enhanced market growth in 2005 coming from its newest 26-inch, 32-inch, 37-inch Super-IPS-based models, plus upcoming 42-inch, 47-inch and 55-inch models.

“Syntax’s mission for strong, steady market growth is predicated on four key fundamentals,” states James Li, Chief Executive Officer of Syntax Groups. “Affordable pricing—not the lowest cost—combined with rich specifications, product quality and an excellent warranty program are driving consumers to select our high-value Olevia brand when making buying decisions to enhance their home entertainment environment.”

As a result of its rapid growth and retail channel ramp up since commencing Olevia LCD TV sales in Q2 2004, Syntax achieved a “Top 5” North America LCD TV market position in Q4 2004 according DisplaySearch's Global TV Shipment and Forecast Report. “Syntax Groups' Olevia brand continues to be one of the fastest growing LCD TV brands in North America, and we believe its market share reached 7% in Q4'04,” said Ross Young, President of DisplaySearch. “The company continues to introduce premium products at attractive prices resulting in increased penetration in each segment it enters. The introduction of its new 32" and 37" S-IPS models establish new price points in these segments and should continue to result in rapid growth.”

CompUSA, one of Syntax’s national retail partners, has ordered more than 15,000 Olevia LCD TV units, including all models of Syntax’s product line, plus more than 1,000 Olevia LCOS TVs since commencing sales in December 2004. CompUSA joins a growing roster of well-known consumer electronics channel stores that are delivering high value affordability to their customers through the Olevia LCD TV brand. Syntax attributes much of its 2004 market share growth to well established relationships with retailers including Staples, HH Gregg, CompuSmart, ABC Warehouse, American TV, BuyRite, Micro Center, RC Willey, Nebraska Furniture Mart, Datavision, Dakota TV, RCS Computer and Fry’s Electronics, plus numerous consumer-direct Internet retailers such as Target.com, TigerDirect, PC Connection, PC Mall, eCost and Amazon.com.

Syntax also announces its new final assembly, test and quality control production line in operation at the company’s 120,000-square foot facility in the City of Industry, Southern California. With its capacity to efficiently move Olevia LCD TVs ranging from 20-inches to 55-inches through the entire line, Syntax anticipates that it will achieve a 60 to 75 percent productivity enhancement over its previous manual processes.

“Olevia LCD TVs are manufactured with the same high quality panels, video processing chipsets and other key components that are used in Tier One branded products,” said Li. “It is extremely inaccurate to assume that Syntax is a low end brand just because of the affordable prices we offer to consumers.”

Anadigm® Announces Interface Improvements and Code Reduction Options in Latest Version of AnadigmDesigner®2

AnadigmDesigner®2 version 2.5 introduces a range of new features that give designers greater flexibility in designing and prototyping FPAAs.

Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) February 20, 2022 -- Anadigm®, the programmable analog company, today announced the release of a new version of AnadigmDesigner®2, an EDA tool used to design, implement, and test dynamically reconfigurable field programmable analog arrays (FPAAs).

AnadigmDesigner®2 version 2.5 introduces a range of new features that give designers greater flexibility in designing and prototyping FPAAs. Shrinking the code size of configuration datasets by 90 percent, this newest AnadigmDesigner®2 allows the use of lower-end microcontroller companion devices in FPAA implementations, significantly reducing the cost of software-controlled analog solutions. A new Visual C++ Prototyping Tool makes it easier than ever to prototype dynamically reconfigurable FPAAs using the Anadigmvortex development system. A streamlined user interface features significant improvements to the CAM browser and handler, and enhancements to the supporting AnadigmFilter tool include the ability to create custom filters by manually moving pole and zero positions.

“We’ve demonstrated a continued commitment to enhancing our AnadigmDesigner®2 EDA tool suite, making it increasingly easy to use and flexible enough to handle a wide variety of applications in the audio, RFID, industrial, and medical industries, to name a few,” said Bill McLean, CEO of Anadigm®. “From our customers’ point of view, this new version of AnadigmDesigner®2 represents a major advance for both prototyping FPAAs and reducing cost of ownership for production designs.”

AnadigmDesigner®2 version 2.5 includes a significant update to the generation of application programming interfaces that allow dynamic device configuration from a microcontroller. The facility can now reduce configuration code by a factor of 10-to-1 by pre-calculating wide ranges of circuit states and presenting the ready-made configuration datasets in a compact form to the microcontroller. This makes it possible to use lower-end devices that have limited memory and computing power.

The new AnadigmDesigner®2 Visual C++ Prototyping Tool makes it much easier for designers to exercise the full reconfiguration strength of an FPAA in the prototype environment. Generating a ready-made complete project for Visual C++ and Microsoft .NET, this new capability allows users to quickly and easily generate a program on a PC that can dynamically update the FPAA device provided on the Anadigmvortex evaluation board. As a result, designers can test and adjust dynamically reconfigurable FPAA implementations in real time and observe exactly how they will work in real-world applications.

The AnadigmDesigner®2 user interface has also been enhanced, with simplified libraries that can list CAMs either by device type or function. The new CAM handlers provide support for the wide variety of Anadigmvortex FPAAs and are forward-compatible with future FPAA families for audio, RFID, and other applications. The CAM most appropriate to a device family under test is automatically selected while the others are grayed out. Additional interface improvements include an improved clock settings dialog and a new chip selection guide.

The supporting AnadigmFilter filter synthesis tool has been improved to communicate better with the updated AnadigmDesigner®2 version 2.5. A new pole/zero edit window enables users to move pole and zero positions manually to create custom filters. Any manual changes to the filter CAM parameters in AnadigmDesigner®2 are now reflected back to the AnadigmFilter response. Multiple filters are supported within a single design, and achieved CAM parameters are reinterpreted to derive the achieved filter response, which is now displayed on top of the requested filter response.

Anadigm® FPAAs are used to replace discrete components and ASICs in real-world interfaces, where the devices greatly reduce the length of design cycles while bringing analog functions under digital control. Dynamically reconfigurable FPAAs allow on-the-fly, real-time control of analog functions by the microprocessor in an embedded system, giving the designer the flexibility to implement new features such as auto-ranging and auto-calibration, and also to have the device change functionality sequentially over time to support multiple operating modes. Statically reconfigurable FPAAs require a reset before reloading a new configuration bitstream.

An evaluation copy of AnadigmDesigner®2 version 2.5 is available for download from www.anadigm.com. A complete evaluation kit with a development board, entry-level software, and updated documentation is now available at a promotional price of $199. Pricing for the FPAA family of silicon products ranges from $3.15 to $7.69 in 10,000-piece quantities.

Surge Protector Powers Past Two-Year Mark

BITS Limited, a company specializing in engineering solutions, recently celebrated the two-year anniversary of their Smart Strip Power Strip, a surge protector with a superior design that saves time and energy.

(PRWEB) February 17, 2022 -- BITS Limited celebrated the two-year anniversary of their surge protector, the Smart Strip Power Strip, in December 2004. Russell Barton, President of BITS Limited, credits the success of the Smart Strip Power Strip to its superior design and ability to save time and energy.

The Smart Strip Power Strip saves time and reduces energy bills by turning off all peripherals that are plugged into the surge protector. Use of the Smart Strip eliminates the need to turn on or off the accessories plugged into the surge protector by automatically “unplugging” them when the main piece of equipment is not in use. The surge protector also reduces the energy bill by eliminating all leakage and idle currents.

In addition to a thirty-day trial on their surge protectors, BITS Limited offers a money back guarantee if the customer is not completely satisfied with the surge protector. To purchase the surge protector or to learn more about the benefits of the Smart Strip, visit www.SmartStrip.net.

About the Smart Strip Power Strip
The Smart Strip surge protector utilizes 2225 joules, 84,000 amps, and 130 Volt three-way protection. It also features a 15 amp circuit breaker, superior EMI/RFI filtering, ten outlets, and is wall mountable in four different ways. “The features included on our surge protectors are of the highest quality,” said Barton. “We designed a product that we would want to use in our own homes and offices.” The Smart Strip also uses a patent-pending safety monitoring circuit that monitors the status of the entire surge protector and the ground.

About BITS Limited
BITS Limited was founded in 1986 by brothers Bruce and Russell Barton. BITS Limited switched its focus from service and maintenance of diagnostic medical equipment to engineering solutions in 2001. Rocom (China) and Rotech (USA) were subcontracted to help with production design and manufacturing of the Smart Strip surge protector. These two companies were chosen because their leadership in the areas of design and manufacturing of surge protectors complemented the vision of BITS Limited.

Artemis Solutions Group Announces a Dramatic Price Drop on the BioCert® Guardian™

Fingerprint Door Lock - Biometric Security for Under US $200
Imagine securing your home with the latest in fingerprint biometric technology and at the same time eliminating the headache of shared or lost keys. Now you can with the BioCert® Guardian™ Biometric Door Lock from Biometrics Direct... All for much less than you might imagine! The BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock runs exclusively on battery power. Powered by 4 AA batteries, it can be operated for up to a year without changing the batteries. Fingerprint enrollment is quick and easy. Up to 138 users can be enrolled directly on the fingerprint lock at the door.

Freeland, WA (PRWEB) February 17, 2022 -- US Company - Artemis Solutions Group, a privately held biometric and smart card technology company is releasing for sale and distribution the revolutionary BioCert® Guardian™ Fingerprint Door Lock. This revolutionary consumer product is squarely targeted at home and small business consumers with a retail price of $199.95

"In addition to being a refuge from the hectic pace of the modern day world, our homes are a gathering place for friends and family.

Often it is necessary for us to grant others access to our homes when we are not available or for us to have access without a key.

Now you can secure your home with the BioCert Guardian fingerprint door lock. Our core marketing message for this product is "BioCert® - The Power of You™", and this technology really lives up to that slogan. Only people that you personally authorize can unlock the door with their fingerprint." states James Childers - President of Artemis Solutions Group. (http://www.artemis-usa.com)

"This revolutionary technology was developed and integrated by our partner Adel for use in China and Hong Kong and now the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock is becoming one of the hottest technology items for homes and small business throughout the globe." said Mac McGolpin - Operations Director for Intelligent Biometric Solutions, LTD. (http://www.biometriq.com)

The BioCert trademark is registered in the United States and is exclusively owned by Artemis Solutions Group which operates a group of biometric and smart card companies with distributorships and authorized resellers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Hong Kong.

Intelligent Biometric Solutions Ltd is the sourcing arm affiliated with Artemis Solutions Group.

BioCert® door locks have recently been featured in the smash hit Extreme Makeover Home Edition on ABC Television and in the hit movie iRobot starring Will Smith. The drawback to these locks in the past has been their high price and required professional installation because of a mortise lockset.

Mr. Childers clarifies - "Traditionally, biometric locks have been based upon the highly secure 5 latch international mortise. This type of mortise is used primarily in hotels, banks and office buildings because of the increased strength of the latch. Unfortunately product requires a professional carpenter or locksmith to route out a hole to install the lock. We designed the BioCert Guardian Fingerprint Door Lock to be used either stand alone or in conjunction with the customers existing deadbolt.

One of the best features of the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock is that it uses a standard cylindrical lockset with both a 2 3/8 or 2 3/4" backset supplied and can be quickly installed in most doors with little effort.

I myself am all thumbs when it comes to mechanical projects and yes... even I had this installed, up and running on my office door in under 20 minutes with NO additional tools required. Everything I needed was right in the box!"

The BioCert® Guardian™ Fingerprint Door Lock is designed as a secure biometric door lock for home and small business with the following unique benefits -

Security and Peace of Mind - The Many uses of the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock

Home Use -
Family - From the student that is fresh off to college to the family member that occasionally visits and arrives late in the night, it is often necessary for family members to have a way to enter our homes without additional intervention on our part. Currently the only ways to accommodate these scenarios is by giving the individual a key or leaving one in a location that can be readily accessed (under the proverbial door mat). But what happens when someone loses their key, worse yet, what happens when you need to change the locks because a key left in an easily guessed location was lost or stolen? With the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock you can program up to 138 individuals fingerprints into the lock for immediate access. This allows you to grant access to any individual you choose.

Walkers & Joggers - There is nothing quite like an early morning walk or jog to jump start your day. Carrying extra items like wallets, purses and keys is not convenient for this activity. While it is possible to simply leave your front door open or leave a key under the mat, this is not conducive to good home security. Why not use something you always take with you to open the door? Your fingerprint cannot be lost, stolen or forgotten with the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock.

Children - In today's society most families have parents that work. Often in single parent families or families where both parents are working outside the home it is necessary for children to have access to the home while the parents are away. Entrusting even the most responsible child with a key is problematic. Keys that are lost, stolen or simply left in a desk at school will not ensure that your child arrives safely inside the house after a day at school. With the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock you can have confidence in knowing that your child has access to the safety of your home even when you can't be there.

Shared Residence, Condos, Apartments & Time Shares - If you own a piece of property where you share ownership such as a condo, leased apartment or vacation home, the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock will allow you to grant access to all ownership parties while maintaining absolute control over who has access. You can be guaranteed that there will be no key swapping or sharing and that only the authorized individuals have access using the security of Fingerprint Biometric Technology.

Office Use - Management Suite and Human Resource Offices - Protect your business' most important assets and the future of your company with the Biometric Security Features of the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock.

Secure the IT Closet or Server Room with the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock. With the growing importance of ecommerce and online transaction processing the security of your IT infrastructure has never been so critical as it is now.

Technology & Supplies Store Room - It is frighteningly true that most theft in small business is from internal sources. Most organizations don't even realize that they have been too trustworthy until it is too late. While most employees are honest and worthy of the great trust we place in them, there can be those within your organization that have less than honest intent.

Don't even give an unscrupulous employee a chance. Whether the loss in your organization is an employee stealing high ticket items to turn into ready cash by selling them on an internet auction site or an employee pilfering office supplies, you can trust your security to the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock.

Features of the BioCert® Guardian™ fingerprint door lock:

Russian Minister of Education and Science Andrey Fursenko to Participate in the Second U.S.-Russia Technology Symposium at Stanford University, Feb. 17 - 18

New York, February 16. RIA Novosti. Russian Minister of Education and Science Andrey Fursenko will take part in the Second U.S.-Russia Technology Symposium at Stanford University, February 17 - 18. Along with the former U.S. Secretary of Defense William Perry Mr.Fursenko will co-chair the Symposium sponsored by Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal

New York, (PRWEB) February 17, 2022 -- RIA Novosti. Russian Minister of Education and Science Andrey Fursenko will take part in the Second U.S.-Russia Technology Symposium at Stanford University, February 17 - 18. Along with the former U.S. Secretary of Defense William Perry Mr.Fursenko will co-chair the Symposium sponsored by Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal.

The U.S.-Russia Technology Symposium is the premiere investor conference on Russian technology and emerging growth companies. The Symposium cultivates a transatlantic network of businesspeople and policymakers with an interest in Russian technology and publicizes such technology among investors unfamiliar with Russia’s scientific potential. The annual Symposium participant’s list this year represents the cream of the crop or the Russian hi-tech and emerging growth companies, as well as many prominent government officials. Among the participants are Anatoly Karachinsky (President & CEO, IBS Group), David Yakobashvili (Chairman of the Board, Wimm-Bill-Dann), Viktor Vekselberg (CEO, TNK-BP), Sergey Kravchenko (President, Boeing Russia/CIS), Sergei Generalov (Chairman of the Board, Russian Investor Protection Association), Dmitry Milovantsev (Deputy Minister of Communications).

The American participants list include names of the former Secretary of State George Schultz, Michael J. Copps, FCC Commissioner, Andrew Somers (President, American Chamber of Commerce), Jon Khazam ( Vice President, Software and Solutions Group General Manager, Intel), Coit Blacker (Director, Stanford Institute for International Studies), Carly Fiorina (until last week – CEO, Hewlett-Packard), John Schwarz (President and COO, Symantec), Helen Teplitskaya (President of the American-Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry).

Information technologies are among the most rapidly developing sectors of Russia’s economy. The Federal Targeted Program “Electronic Russia” stipulates measures aimed at Russia’s informatization. In particular, it is planned to make investments to the tune of about 2.4 billion US dollars in this sector. It is pointed out in the program that by 2007 that the share of information technology (IT) products in Russia’s GDP should be increased from the present 0.5% to 2%, and the export of high technologies is to grow 15 to 20 times over and reach 2.5 billion dollars. Russia’s high-tech segment is most attractive for major international companies. The success of the research departments of companies like Intel and Motorola in Russia has encouraged their rivals to think of opening similar centers there. Now both the companies and the rating agencies note the fact that the IT market has been growing faster than the oil industry.

The Symposium’s theme is timely in light of the attention focused on outsourcing in Silicon Valley and Russia’s desire to diversify its economy beyond traditional oil and gas sectors. Russia is mastering new technologies, including those in telecommunications, at a high pace. The Symposium is an excellent opportunity to meet U.S. and Russian top business, government, and academic leaders working in the technology sector.

SLS International Gains Momentum in the Cinema Market

Recent Successful Installation at Wehrenberg Theatres Galaxy 14 Complex Generates Additional Orders

SPRINGFIELD, MO (PRWEB) February 17, 2022 -- SLS International, Inc. (OTCBB: SITI) announced today that it has received multiple orders from distributors for its new Cinema Series products. Recent orders, including one for an 18 screen theater complex and another one for a 14 screen cinema complex, both in Montreal, reflect the growing demand from distributors for deliveries over the next 12 to 18 months. The recent Canadian orders came through SLS' cinema distributor, Big Sky Industries. Big Sky was also responsible for the initial sale and installation at the Wehrenberg Galaxy 14 in Chesterfield, Missouri in December. The speaker systems for the two new Canadian orders have a retail value exceeding $250,000

"Guests have told me that their movie experience was incredible and the entertainment value has been enriched with the crystal clear sound," said Angelo Alvarez, Managing Director of Wehrenberg Theatres Galaxy 14. "They have told me that the experience of "Phantom of the Opera" that is currently running in our Mega Screen room made them feel like they were at a live production. In the 15 years that I have managed theatres, this is the most unbelievable sound system I've ever heard for a motion picture presentation. The SLS speakers truly deliver live performance sound quality."

"The Cinema market is beginning to embrace our technology and quality of sound reproduction," stated John Gott, President of SLS International. "The success of our first installation at the Wehrenberg Galaxy 14 is spreading. Several executives from cinema companies, including ones from top ten chains, have been to this location to listen to the our speakers systems and their response has been very positive. Our US and International distributors are presently specifying and quoting many systems to be delivered in the near future and all indications are that this market will expand for us very rapidly. We will be displaying our full line of Cinema products at the upcoming ShoWest industry tradeshow next month and we expect to win over many more buyers with the quality of our products.

It is fortunate that we will be in our new facility soon to meet these orders because each new cinema complex usually contains 12 to 16 screens, requiring us to produce large quantities of speakers. We are presently negotiating marketing arrangements with Wehrenberg and expect to do the same with other owners for in building and on screen advertising of our Q Line of Home Theater products that will be released soon. We believe the recognition for our Cinema and Professional products will undoubtedly increase interest among movie attendees and in the minds of consumers for SLS products that they will be able to purchase."

Semtek Partners with Noblett & Associates to Equip Financial Service ISOs with Semtek’s Mobile Card Readers

The goal of the alliance is to provide small- and medium-sized businesses with the ability to accept electronic payments via mobile/wireless devices in the most secure environment possible.

San Diego, CA and Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB via Mobilitynewswire) February 16, 2022 -- Semtek Innovative Solutions Corporation, the leading developer of mobile card-reading technologies, and Noblett & Associates, a payment industry consultancy, announced today an alliance between the two companies to better channel Semtek’s products through Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs) that service financial and retail organizations. The goal of the alliance is to provide small- and medium-sized businesses with the ability to accept electronic payments via mobile/wireless devices in the most secure environment possible.

Companies with mobile business operations require the ability to accept credit card payments from remote locations. These businesses often turn toward trusted ISOs to research and recommend solutions that best meet their needs. Noblett & Associates, with its solid understanding of ISO requirements, will recommend Semtek’s card swipe products to ISOs that specialize in payments technologies.

“Our expertise in the payments industry, coupled with Semtek’s leading-edge product design, development and management will provide the industry with an unequaled mobile payments solution,” said Paul Noblett, president of Noblett & Associates. “Although there are other players in the mobile/wireless payment field, Semtek is unique in terms of its ability to provide an efficient and extremely cost-effective solution.”

Semtek’s solutions are designed and priced to enable organizations of all sizes to be equipped with a cost-effective, secure means of accepting payments from remote locations. Competing products in the industry often require substantial investments in equipment, eliminating opportunities for small remote business operators.

“The strength of our alliance with Noblett & Associates lies in the synergy between the leader in mobile card reading technology and a trusted advisor to the ISO financial services industry,” said John Sarkisian, Semtek’s chief executive officer. “Our combined expertise will result in more powerful mobile commerce solutions channeled more efficiently to the right markets.”

Click fraud threat looms

Jessie Stricchiola, president of Alchemist Media helps businesses detect problems and negotiate pay per click refunds from search engines due to "click fraud"

February 15, 2022 [Associated Press]

SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- Like thousands of other merchants, Tammy Harrison thought she had struck gold when hordes visited her Web site by clicking on the small Internet ads she purchased from the world's most popular online search engines.

It cost Harrison as much as $20 for each click, but the potential new business seemed to justify the expense.

Harrison's delight dimmed, though, when she realized the people clicking on her ads weren't really interested in her products.

She was being victimized by "click fraud," a scam that threatens to squelch the online advertising boom that has been enriching Google Inc., Yahoo Inc. and their many business partners.

The ruse has different twists, but the end result is usually the same: Merchants are billed for fruitless traffic generated by someone who repeatedly clicks on an advertiser's Web link with no intention of ever buying anything.

Harrison figures she has spent about 200 hours documenting the mischief that drained her budget and diverted customers to a competitor, costing her an estimated $100,000 in sales.

"Click fraud has gotten out of control," said Harrison, who sells computer software to doctors. "It's stealing money from my pocket. It's just as bad as someone walking into a store and taking a television."

Estimates vary widely on how much click fraud is going on in the $3.8 billion search engine advertising market.

"Click fraud exists, but it's mostly a big paranoia," said Chris Churchill, chief executive of Fathom Online, a San Francisco firm that studies the spending patterns on search engine ads.

Others believe anywhere from 10 percent to 20 percent of the clicks are made under false pretenses.

"Click fraud is like a big elephant standing in the middle of the living room," said Lisa Wehr, president of Oneupweb, a search engine advertising consultant. "Everyone sees it and knows it's there, but no one is quite sure what to do about it."

Both Google and Yahoo acknowledge the perils of click fraud, but believe improved internal controls and the increased vigilance of advertisers will prevent the problem from escalating.

"We are always worried about it, but it hasn't been a material issue so far," said Google chief executive Eric Schmidt.

After recently expanding its staff to patrol click fraud, Google broke up a scheme that had generated several thousand bogus transactions, chief financial officer George Reyes told analysts earlier this week.

Yahoo also has been shoring up click fraud protections, said Patrick Giordiani, a senior manager for the company's advertising subsidiary, Overture Services.

Such reassurances from search engine executives aren't surprising, given how much they stand to lose if advertisers curtail spending, said Jessie Stricchiola, president of Alchemist Media, which helps businesses detect problems and negotiate refunds.

"There's some serious positioning and politicking going on," she said. "Click fraud isn't going to destroy the industry, but it's not going away either."

Harrison said she didn't know a thing about the problem until a former employee formed a rival firm and started to repeatedly click on her ads as a competitive tactic. The fraudulent clicks frequently exceeded spending limits Harrison had set, knocking her ads out of the display rotation.

The search engines have issued refunds to cover the bogus clicks, but Harrison says those payments don't compensate for missed sales opportunities.

In November, Google filed a lawsuit that revealed the search engine can't even trust some of its own advertising partners.

Houston-based Auction Experts International never responded to claims it collected at least $50,000 in illegitimate commissions by clicking on the ad links that Google delivered to its Web pages.

But the site shut down and Google won a default judgment against one of its principals.

The suit won't be Google's last to combat click fraud, said Palo Alto attorney David Kramer, who represents the company.

Stricchiola believes it's only a matter of time before advertisers become so exasperated with click fraud that they file a class-action lawsuit against a major search engine.

The incentives for click fraud have increased along with the money devoted to search engine advertising -- a concept that didn't exist until Overture Services introduced it in the late 1990s.

Such advertising, Google calls it AdWords, works like this: The search engine auctions off the right to have advertising links displayed when designated words, such as "vacation Hawaii," are included in a search request. The top bids get the most prominent display on Web pages.

Once widely ridiculed, the idea has turned into a fast-spreading craze as more merchants realized substantially higher returns on search engine ads than on more traditional marketing campaigns conducted through the Yellow Pages, direct mail and newspapers.

By 2008, industry research firm eMarketer expects $7.4 billion to be spent on search engine advertising, up from just $108.5 million in 2000.

The success of search engine advertising has substantially raised prices, too.

In mid-1999, advertisers paid Overture an average commission of 11 cents per click. By the end of last year, advertisers were paying an industrywide average of $1.70 for the hundreds of keywords tracked by Fathom Online.

The cost of prized search terms runs much higher. For instance, the top price for mesothelioma, a cancer that spurred scores of lawsuits linking the illness to asbestos exposure, recently stood at $51 per click, Fathom said.

Higher prices have turned click fraud into a cottage industry.

Some swindlers have hired cheap overseas contractors to sit in front of computers and click on targeted links all day.

Others are developing sophisticated software to help automate and conceal click fraud.

On the other side of the fence, entrepreneurs like Dmitri Eroshenko are trying to develop technology solutions to counteract click fraud.

"This has become a real cat-and-mouse game," said Eroshenko, who runs Clicklab in Miami. "Advertisers are going to have to accept a certain level of click fraud as a cost of doing business."

Canyon Technology Releases Digital Music Player with 2-Color OLED Display

Canyon Technology has released a new uniquely-designed MP3 player/FM radio/voice recorder with OLED display which is targeted to music lovers preferring active and mobile lifestyle.

Gorinchem, The Netherlands (PRWEB) February 15, 2022 -- Canyon Technology, an international manufacturer of innovative computer components and peripherals, has released a new uniquely-designed MP3 player/FM radio/voice recorder with OLED display which is targeted to music lovers preferring active and mobile lifestyle. The new trendy consumer product is available in March across Europe, Middle East and Africa.

The brand-new CN-MPOLED player is the latest addition to the recently introduced Canyon Premium series, and has been specifically designed to address the needs of the demanding music lovers preferring mobile devices that offer higher quality and reliability.

CN-MPOLED reproduces MP3/WMA files with VBR support (32 Kbps – 320 Kbps). VBR (Variable Bit Rate) files are becoming increasingly popular, as they yield a lower bitrate for a given sound quality. A lot of music files that are downloaded from the internet are now encoded using VBR. At present the decoders that do not support them are considered sub-standard and out-of-date.

The brand-new digital music player includes MP3 player, voice recorder, Flash memory storage (512MB or 1GB), and FM radio with 30 presets and region selection. The device offers a comfortable hand grip, while its large buttons provide easy access to music files and all available features. At the touch of a button, users can customize the sound with six equalizer presets (User/Jazz/Classic/Rock/Pop/Normal) or switch on SRS sound effect.

The new device features a state-of-the-art two-color OLED display (128x64). OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode which is a recent technology allowing the production of super-thin displays of stunning quality which do not require any power-consuming backlight. These displays use specially designed carbon-based molecules that emit light when electric current passes through them.

The high-contrast yellow and blue OLED display built into the Canyon’s player will surely make a difference for those users who want to complement the enjoyable music with eye-pleasing display information. Another pleasant fact is that the display supports long file names and multiple languages.

Users can quickly download MP3 or WMA files from their computers. The unit is fully plug-and-play compatible with computers running Microsoft Windows 98 or later. In addition to the USB cable, its accessories include earphones, software disk, battery, quick guide, necklace, carrying case and line-in cable. Apart from being used as an MP3 player, this device can obviously be used as a high-capacity USB drive. The player measures 42x80x23mm and weighs just 35g (without battery). It runs on 2 AAA alkaline batteries supporting over 20 hours of continuous play.

Guus Spruijt, Marketing Director at Canyon Technology, is confident about the device’s market success: “Our innovative CN-MPOLED player offers some unbeatable features, such as ultra-light weight and stylish looks, brilliant OLED display, and reasonable price/performance ratio. I am sure this unique device is going to impress style-conscious lovers of good quality music.”


The recommended retail price for CN-MPOLEDE (512MB of internal storage) is EUR 129 (including VAT), for CN-MPOLEDF (1GB) – EUR 199.

The units are covered by 2-year limited warranty.

DCA Obtain Exclusive Pharma Industry Rights to Technology for Interactive Promotion and Education

New York (PRWEB) February 15, 2022 -- Serious USA, Inc, the leading publisher of interactive CD Cardz™ announced today that it has formed a strategic alliance with Online healthcare communications company Group DCA. This move gives Group DCA’s four companies exclusive pharmaceutical industry rights to SERIOUS’ CD Cardz technology.

Through the CD card, which Group DCA will launch to the pharmaceutical industry in early 2005, a number of customized applications can be accessed. These include interactive e-detailing sessions, online advisory boards and market research, using the Group DCA proprietary interactive online software package known as DIAGRAM (DIAlogue GRAphics Motion). Future applications may also include use as a credit card for the distribution of points for gift redemption, cash honoraria and even the fulfillment of samples.

“We are very excited about our new partnership with SERIOUS and what this CD card will mean for pharmaceutical marketers,” said Robert O. Likoff, CEO of Group DCA. “Marketers will now have an opportunity to use an entirely different medium – an attractive and convenient credit card – to provide interactive, value-added programming and promotions to both healthcare providers and patients.”

“We have launched commercial CD Card applications in many industries,” commented David Brown, CEO of SERIOUS, “but see huge potential in the pharmaceutical area, where the product has not yet been used. We are delighted to partner with one of the industry’s most successful communication developers. This is definitely a ‘remedy’ for success.”

Group DCA (http://www.groupdca.com), formerly Dot Com Advisors, is a privately owned company established in 1999 by pharmaceutical industry veterans Rob Likoff and Jack Davis and information technology veteran Ken Crain. Group DCA wrote the DIAGRAM proprietary software package used by each of its three companies to create interactive online programs. To date, DIAGRAM has powered over 250 interactive sessions, engaging more than 250,000 participants in more than 60 international pharmaceutical brands.

In 2004, Group DCA launched three independent companies designed to serve the increasingly diverse communications needs of pharmaceutical companies and healthcare professionals: Graphic Details (online promotion), Insight Exchange (online education), and Park Street Research (online market research) that serve the company’s established client base, which includes 15 of the top 20 pharmaceutical corporations worldwide.

SERIOUS was founded in London in 1997, as a digital music production facility for film, television and multi-media with a state-of-the-art, digital recording studio and interactive design department. In 2000, taking advantage of its in-house creative and technical capabilities, SERIOUS launched its CD Cardz™ technology. In addition to their current partners of the NFL, NBA, Manchester United FC and Arsenal FC, SERIOUS has produced custom CD Cardz for New-Line Cinema (The Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers), Warner Brothers, (The Matrix – Reloaded), NPG Records (Prince Fan Club Card), ESPN and Campbell’s.

MedicTag, LLC Announces Expansion and Acquisition of Distributors for its New Medical Alert Product

MedicTags increased sales spurs expansion and optimistic outlook for this new company challenging the established medical alert industry.

(PRWEB) February 15, 2022 -- MedicTag, LLC a newly formed company in Deposit, NY is producing and distributing a patent pending USB (Universal Serial Bus) device that stores personal emergency information. The innovative device has the capacity to store and display critical information used by emergency personnel and can be carried on a key ring.

MedicTag was created by Edward Ricci, a disabled Vietnam veteran, to provide his elderly mother with a way to carry all her emergency information, medical conditions, medications and emergency contacts with her at all times. It proved so popular with everyone who saw it that he partnered with Mark Tucker, a prominent local business owner to form a company, patent and distribute the device.

The company originally unveiled the product last October at the National EMS Expo in Atlanta, Georgia to an overwhelmingly positive response from EMS professionals and will be on display again this March at the EMS Today conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The company began selling the device, simply called MedicTag, last fall and has been pleased to experience steadily increasing sales from the very beginning. The product uses a USB flash drive to store emergency information such as identification, existing medical conditions, medications, doctors, surgeries and emergency contacts. MedicTag uses a simple software menu that makes it very user friendly and the device will work with any USB-capable computer.

Medical bracelets, ID tags and jewelry are routinely looked for by EMS personnel and first responders to determine a patient's special medical needs. MedicTag is hoping that its USB device will establish a leading presence within the industry because unlike the bracelets that offer just an alert of a medical condition, the new product will provide detailed emergency medical information a patient. Information that is essential to rapid diagnosis and proper treatment of a patient in a life threatening situation.

The company said the device will be of particular value to first responders because they will be able to insert the USB drive into any computer, many EMS units now have laptop computers in their vehicles, and immediately gain access to a person's emergency information even if the patient is unconscious. Changes to the information stored on the device can be made quickly and easily, whenever necessary, allowing the information to always be kept up to date.

Since many of those that have the greatest need for this device are on limit or fixed incomes, the company has made every effort to keep the price to a minimum. At $39.95, available locally and through on-line stores, they provide safety and security at an affordable price.

MedicTag has recently acquired new distributors in the US and is negotiating with distributors in Canada and the UK. The company has plans to translate the software for distribution in predominantly Spanish speaking counties and hopes that continued increases in sales will allow it to expand, providing what may be a life saving service to people worldwide. The company said expansion would increase its work force requirements, providing sorely needed jobs in the upstate New York area.

MedicTag, LLC is a privately held company located in Deposit , New York.

Celoxica Delivers Advanced Synthesis Technology for SystemC

Agility Compiler Delivers ESL Implementation Flow for SoC Prototyping and Verification

Abingdon, UK (PRWEB) February 14, 2022 -- Celoxica, the leading provider of C-based Electronic System Level (ESL) behavioural design and synthesis solutions, today announced it is shipping Agility Compiler for SystemC to customers. The v1.0 tool includes an array of advanced system design capabilities for the synthesis of SystemC models to hardware. The tool produces IEEE compliant RTL descriptions as input to popular ASIC/ SoC synthesis flows, and generates gate-level EDIF netlists for high-density programmable logic devices.

With Agility Compiler, designers can produce working silicon from SystemC models much earlier in the design flow, accelerating system verification and SoC prototyping. The direct path from SystemC to hardware closes a critical gap in the ESL design flow for successful SoC design from system-level models.

Agility Compiler synthesises a complete hardware system with no artificial limitations on design hierarchy, structure, timing or interfaces. Agility Compiler advanced synthesis technology supports multi-million gate designs, multiple blocks and multiple clock domains, easily beating the results of entry-level behavioural synthesis tools that restrict designers to small, single block, single clock domain designs. In addition, Agility Compiler synthesis extracts accurate timing and physical design metrics to support fast cycle accurate simulation and test bench generation for system verification.

Early SoC prototypes
By allowing SystemC Transaction Level Models (TLM) to be automatically synthesised to RTL descriptions or FPGA netlists, system models are realised in FPGA based SoC prototypes much earlier in the design flow.

“Agility Complier drastically reduces the risk inherent in complex SoC design and enables designs to be turned around to meet a much shorter market window,” said Jeff Jussel, vice president of marketing for Celoxica. “The ability to synthesise from transaction level models tightens the link between the algorithm specifications, the system verification software, and the end hardware.”

Agility Compiler’s synthesis is driven from pure, standard compliant SystemC descriptions. By avoiding the use of proprietary descriptions or linked constraints, the synthesisable SystemC code remains standard compliant and portable for model and IP reuse. Agility Compiler is fully compliant with the OSCI standard SystemC synthesisable subset.

The Agility Compiler gate-level synthesis supports very high-density FPGA devices, such as Altera’s Stratix II and the Virtex 4 family from Xilinx with advanced synthesis features such as re-timing, fine-grained logic sharing, dead-code elimination, rewriting and automatic tree balancing. This direct synthesis support enhances Agility Compiler’s applicability to SoC prototyping, accelerated verification and rapid system implementation.

About Celoxica
An innovator in Electronic System Level (ESL) design, Celoxica supplies the design tools, boards, IP and services that enable the next generation of advanced electronic product design. Celoxica technology raises design abstraction to the algorithm level, accelerating productivity and lowering risk and costs by generating semiconductor hardware directly from C-based software descriptions.

Sensory Introduces Adaptive Artificial Intelligence™

New technology allows products to learn and modify behavior over time.

Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2022 -- Sensory, Inc., the world’s leading supplier of embedded speech technologies, today announced the arrival of Adaptive Artificial Intelligence™ for the RSC-4x Family of speech processors. This new technology empowers developers to create products that learn over time and display life-like personalities. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence™ (Adaptive AI™) is optimized for small, embedded footprints, making it perfect for low cost consumer electronics, toys and games. “With the advent of Adaptive Artificial Intelligence, interaction between humans and machines takes the next big step.” said Bill Teasley, Sensory VP-Engineering, “For example, home automation systems can learn and automatically anticipate the preferences of the user, such as for temperature and lighting. An entertainment robot can grow from a baby to a mature individual with unique personality characteristics and preferences based on its experiences. Adaptive AI™ brings life to products and products to life.”

The Brains Behind Adaptive AI™
Adaptive Artificial Intelligence™ technology is a methodology based on statistical pattern recognition expressed as reinforcement learning. Dr. Michael Mozer, an internationally recognized expert in machine learning, developed this concept to enable machines to better meet the social and physical desires of people. Products imitating real life behaviors are a growing market as evidenced by the recent trend in entertainment robots in the forms of dogs and people, and dolls that provide interactive experiences. Adaptive AI™ enables such products to simulate life-like characteristics with captivating personalities that change over time. For instance, a product may get hungry or sleepy, have specific food preferences, or tend to be excitable or grumpy. It can even allow unique “birth characteristics” for each unit, and along with the unit’s unique experiences over time, result in no two units being exactly alike.

Adaptive AI™ may also be used to enable a light switch or a thermostat to learn a user’s preferences for patterns of use and settings and meet those desires automatically. No extensive product setup is required. A short period of usage teaches the product the user’s preferences, and as the user’s preferences change over time, the product will learn these as well.

New IC’s Support Adaptive AI™ Algorithms
Sensory’s RSC-4x Family of microcontrollers with speech input/output (I/O) capabilities now also support the Adaptive AI™ technology. Powered by Sensory’s new FluentChip firmware suite of speech recognition, speech synthesis and music synthesis technologies, these low cost IC’s selling for under $2 in volume can handle recognition vocabularies of up to 40 speaker independent words. All the necessary ROM, RAM, and other hardware are contained on chip, including a general-purpose microcontroller and powerful 16 bit A/D converter. By replacing the existing microcontroller, a Sensory RSC-4x Family chip can add intelligence and personality, speech input (recognition) and speech output (talking), with an incremental cost of under $1. The RSC-4x Family opens these technologies up to a new generation of consumer products, with user interface features that were never before affordable.

About Sensory, Inc.
Sensory, Inc., based in Santa Clara, CA, is the world leader in embedded speech technologies. Sensory offers a complete line of IC and software-only solutions for speech recognition, speech & music synthesis, speaker verification and other voice and audio technologies.

Remote Knowledge Houston Announces the rk3000 Monitoring and Tracking System Assisting Captain Bissell on The Voyage of Hope Around the World Sailing Mission

Les Bissel suffered astroke in 2002 recovered and is now sailing around the world in a 28 ft sailboat on a crusade for stroke prevention.and remote knowledge of houston supplied thr rk 3000 gps to monitor the voyage worldwide

(PRWEB) February 10, 2022 -- Les Bissell is a man on a mission – he calls it a “Voyage of Hope” – and thanks to 21st century technology, we can all follow along with him.

In early spring this year, avid sailor and athlete Bissell set sail in his 28-foot sloop, Hope, from Annapolis, Maryland, on a three-year voyage around the world. This is not one of those “just because I can” or “get away from it all” adventures. It’s more of a “because I still can” celebration.

Bissell, who at age 37 suffered a sudden, severe stroke in January 2002, is sailing the globe to heighten awareness about strokes – the signs, symptoms and recovery – and to give courage to all current and future stroke victims. Having won the hard fight to recover, he is partnering with National Stroke Association (NSA) to spread the message of hope.

Now Bissell is out there on the ocean, accompanied only by and an amazing global tracking and communications system donated by Houston-based Remote Knowledge, Inc.

The rk3000 marine telematics device installed on the Hope by Remote Knowledge keeps the sailors in touch with their land-based team around the clock and around the world through the Iridium satellite network and SiRF GPS technology, delivering a seamless global communications platform. The rk3000, while offering continuous monitoring and reporting of Hope’s activity, also provides location-based services such as two-way text messaging, allowing Bissell to communicate the instant he requires assistance.

“The safety and peace of mind provided to Les Bissell by these combined technologies are truly extraordinary. National Stroke Association is also excited about the possibility that these communications systems can help Les and NSA increase the awareness about stroke around the world,” said James Baranski, CEO of NSA.

Bissell and NSA share the same goal with the “Voyage of Hope”: They want to attract media attention to raise awareness and reduce the incidence of stroke. According to NSA (www.stroke.org), nearly 80 percent of strokes are preventable, one-third occur in persons under age 65, and stroke is the third largest killer in the USA.

Because of Remote Knowledge’s rk3000, the person who reads about the voyage in a newspaper or magazine or sees the story on television can follow up by going online to www.voyageofhope.org, reading about Bissell, tracking the trip, and learning about strokes

Update on Voyage of Hope, February, 2005
Hope Captain Les Bissell reports via e-mail that he is in New Zealand, visiting a friend, taking a break from the sea. He is at the Bay of Islands, near the town of Opua, New Zealand.

Next stop: Tonga, then Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Australia, and on to various stops in the Indian Ocean, around the tip of Africa into the South Atlantic and interesting ports of call, heading north until Hope reaches home, Annapolis, Maryland, in about two years.
Bissell ends the e-mail with praise for the boat’s communication system: “Love the RK (Remote Knowledge) equipment. I highly recommend it!”

Widget Distributes Etymotic Earphones Designed for Apple's IPOD®

Widget UK, a leading supplier of mobile technology and accessories to UK retailers and trade, today announced the availability of the 6i Isolator Earphones from Etymotic Research.

(PRWEB) February 9, 2022 -- Widget UK, a leading supplier of mobile technology and accessories to UK retailers and trade, today announced the availability of the 6i Isolator Earphones from Etymotic Research. These cutting-edge earphones were developed especially for use with Apple’s award-winning iPod® and iPod Mini® music players.

Music Cocoon
Unlike most earphones (including the ones that ship with each Apple iPod® ), Etymotic’s earphones are designed to be inserted inside the actual ear canal. The airtight seal created by the earphone’s custom-designed “ear tips” allows highly-focused sound waves to reach the ear drums and the bass response does not dissipate.

Because they are so compact, these Limited Edition 6i earphones are perfect for business travelers, workouts at the gym and any other application where small size and isolation from external noise are required. Any Apple iPod® owner will appreciate the dramatically-enhanced sound quality these unique new earphones can provide.

"The 6i was developed for Apple iPod® users with the goal of providing greater sensitivity and enhanced bass without compromising fidelity," explained Mark Needham, Managing Director of Widget UK Ltd. “They look great, and come in white to complement the design and image of Apple’s iPod® products – but they also work remarkably well with any digital music player.”

Etymotic earphones are considered cutting-edge technology by audiophiles around the globe and have received excellent reviews from Business Week, Newsweek, Macworld, CNET, Audio and many other publications. Stephen Wildstrom of Business Week states that during air travel "you can't do anything about the seating, the beverage carts, or the air quality, but a good personal sound system can make those annoyances easy to take," and recommends combing Etymotic earphones with the Apple iPod.

Each ER 61 system includes a set of ER•6i Isolator earphones, complete with five foot cord with 3.5 mm stereo plug, one pair of white 3-flange eartips, one pair of foam eartips, two replacement filters, one filter changing tool, a shirt clip and a carrying pouch.

"If you're going to buy one accessory for your iPod to improve the sound quality, get these headphones," stated Corey Greenberg, Tech Editor for NBC Television’s Today Show.

Now Available From Widget UK
Suggested retail price for 6i Isolator Earphones is £99.99 inc VAT (Part AAAH0410). Trade discounts are available to recognized retailers.

In addition to stocking the 6i Isolator Earphones, Widget also stocks the Etymotic ER-6, SRP £89.99 (Part AAAH0409) and the Etymotic ER-4P, the original Isolator design, for £199.99 (Part AAAH0408).

All products are available direct to the public by calling 0845 055 0005 or through http://www.widget.co.uk

We're hoping you’ll want to hear more about Etymotic earphones from Widget For additional information on this unique product, for product photos, or for details regarding Widget UK’s other offerings, please contact Mark Needham.

About Etymotic
Etymotic is an ancient Greek word meaning "true to the ear." Etymotic Research Inc. designs and manufactures products that measure, improve and protect hearing. Etymotic’s earphones produce sound that is as close as possible to the sound of a live performance. Etymotic's ER-6 Isolator Earphones and the new 6i were developed as lower cost alternatives to the widely acclaimed ER-4 MicroPro Earphones that have had a loyal following among audiophiles and musicians for over a decade. Etymotic Research has its headquarters in Elk Grove, IL. For more information, please visit www.etymotic.com

The MySpot(TM)200 Remote Controlled, Self Powered Parking Barrier System Now Features A Low-Battery, Early-Warning Capability

The MySpot 200, a self-powered remote controlled parking barrier engineered to block designated parking space entry and exit, now features a 5-second operational time delay to notify users that the radio system’s batteries will soon need replacement.

West Orange, NJ (PRWEB) February 9, 2022 -- Designated Parking Corp., a premier designer and manufacturer of parking and access control systems, today announced the inclusion of a low-battery, early-warning feature for the MySpot(TM) 200 parking system. The MySpot 200, a self-powered remote controlled parking barrier engineered to block designated parking space entry and exit, now features a 5-second operational time delay to notify users that the radio system’s batteries will soon need replacement. Batteries are only necessary for remote activation of the barrier as the MySpot 200 itself requires no external power supply. The system is uniquely engineered to obtain its operating power solely from a proprietary hydraulic spring mechanism that captures and stores energy from the weight of the vehicle. Because of its patented design, the MySpot 200 offers a cost-effective, user-friendly, maintenance-free solution to unauthorized use of reserved parking spaces, access ramps, and driveways. The FCC/CE compliant MySpot 200 is supplied “ready to install” and requires less than 30 minutes to mount. It may be secured to paved surfaces utilizing supplied bolts and anchors, or glued using an optional epoxy kit. No digging or site preparation is necessary.

The MySpot 200’s built-in time delay is developed to ensure uninterrupted use, and optimize reliability and safety. When the radio system’s standard “D” batteries run low (typical battery life 2-3 years) an additional 5-second delay will occur prior to the barrier’s response. This delayed response will continue for 50 cycles, allowing the user ample time to replace the batteries. Upon the 51st time-delayed activation, the system shuts itself down and “plays dead” in the open (down) position to preclude drivers from being blocked in or out of their designated parking spots. The time-delay early-warning method was selected in lieu of buzzers or flashing LEDs as both options consume battery current, buzzers are an annoyance, and flashing LEDs are too easily overlooked. Moreover, a delayed reaction intuitively indicates low power. Each MySpot 200 can accommodate 15 individual standard or common code three-button HomeLink(R) Compatible US HT keychain transmitters, while each transmitter can operate up to nine adjacent MySpot 200s.

In addition to the keychain transmitter, the MySpot 200 system is comprised of a PowerPod module, IdlePod mounting module, and barrier. The proprietary energy storage mechanism, batteries, and electronics are housed within the rugged and durable cast-aluminum PowerPod module, which is sealed to withstand harsh environment, water, and debris. The available torque on the shaft is 140 in-lb. Measuring 43” (109 cm) long and 16.5” (42 cm) tall, the standard barrier is supported by the PowerPod module on one side and by the IdlePod module on the other. A weather-resistant, reflective “reserved” label is provided standard, however customized labels are readily accommodated. The PowerPod module is supplied with steel mounting plates to permit easy removal and replacement of the pods for road maintenance or to relocate the MySpot 200 system.

To enter a designated parking space, the user just sends a remote command from the keychain transmitter. The coded command releases a lock allowing gravity to lower the barrier. The energy to raise the barrier is then captured and stored in the hydraulic spring mechanism of the PowerPod module when the vehicle drives over it. Once the vehicle has parked or exited the space, the user simply depresses a button on the transmitter to raise the barrier. The raised barrier is a perceived theft deterrent for parked vehicle as it blocks unauthorized movement. Should excessive force be applied to the barrier, a self-resetting defense mechanism will absorb the impact and will disengage it from the PowerPod module to preserve the integrity of the module. The barrier is then returned to its raised position when the force is removed.

Designated Parking’s system is engineered for the highest reliability, and tested to 20,000 up/down cycles representing over 10 years (at five cycles per day). It is designed for use by cars and light trucks weighing up to 10,000 lbs./5 tons. The device may be confidently employed in varied indoor and outdoor public and private sector parking applications including offices, apartments/condominiums, hospitals, colleges/universities, airports, municipal and retail parking lots, along with remote driveways. The MySpot 200 system may be ordered with built-in functionality to facilitate handicapped parking, or custom engineered for coin-parking applications.

Pricing for the MySpot 200 system is $640.00 each. Quantity discounts are available by contacting Designated Parking Corp. Delivery is from stock to 6 weeks.

NoteFix: Toshiba, Sony, and HP are Most Commonly Repaired Notebook Computers

Web-based laptop repair service provides information on avoiding most common notebook problems

Bedford, MA (PRWEB) February 8, 2022 -- NoteFix (www.notefix.com), a division of Pre-Owned Electronics and a national leader in laptop repair, reports that the most commonly repaired notebook computer brands are Toshiba, Sony, and HP. This report is based on analysis of over 20,000 laptops that NoteFix has repaired.

Many factors influence the brands that are sent to NoteFix for repair. NoteFix supports seven major brands, not the universe of laptops in circulation; some brands have a higher installed base than others, and therefore a larger number of gross repairs; the demographic of NoteFix customers may gravitate toward a particular brand, and most NoteFix repairs follow the expiration of the manufacturer’s warranty.

Based on the above, Toshiba is the most commonly repaired brand, followed by Sony and then HP. Toshiba Satellite laptops, however, are also the easiest notebook computers to repair, thanks to their internal configuration and screw identification. The least commonly repaired laptops at NoteFix is IBM notebook computers.

For those users who need technical repairs, NoteFix offers an innovative, Internet-based high-speed laptop computer repair service. The company's flat-rate pricing model ensures most repairs will be completed for less than $350 with a turnaround time under 48 hours.

Seoul, South Korea (PRWEB) February 8, 2022 -- Prestigio, one of the most dynamic international manufacturers of LCD displays and TVs, mobile computers, and plasma TVs, has unveiled a new high-performance notebook-based multimedia center featuring brilliantly sharp panoramic 15.4" WSXGA+ LCD screen, 256MB of dedicated video RAM for incredible gains in graphic performance, InstantON function, and sloped keyboard.

The brand-new Nobile 159W is the second multimedia center in Prestigio’s mobile computer line-up. Just like its predecessor Visconte 120 it is capable of instantly playing music CDs, DVD videos, MP3s and browsing digital photos without loading the operation system thanks to its InterVideo® InstantON™ feature. And the PC Card remote control included into the basic configuration allows to control the machine from a distance in InstantON mode and even shut down Windows XP with a press of a button in Windows mode. The new model also supports internal (mini PCI) TV-tuner option. Another pleasant feature meant to provide comfortable typing and prevention of wrist pain (carpal tunnel syndrome) is the highly ergonomic uniquely-designed sloped keyboard.

On top of that, Nobile 159W can boast of an enhanced resolution of WSXGA+ 1680x1050. In addition, the new multimedia center has been equipped with ATI M11 256MB external graphics with ATI PowerPlay™ technology support for less energy consumption and incredible surge in performance for 3D gaming, business applications, and CAD modeling. At the same time, its mobility has not been sacrificed for performance, and the thickness has remained ultra-slim for a performance class notebook (25-33 mm sloped). The Centrino platform allows for increased battery life and wireless connectivity.

Nobile 159W is powered by Intel® Pentium® M processor of up to 2.0 GHz (Dothan supported). The notebook’s compatibility and connectability with other devices is ensured through a wide selection of ports. Nobile 159W is equipped with 3 USB 2.0 ports, RJ-45 Ethernet plug, RJ-11 modem plug, external VGA port, IEEE 1394 port, S-Video output port, headphone/SPDIF jack, PC Card Type II, and mic-in jack, 4-in-1 Card Reader port.

The brand-new multimedia center’s owner will by no means remain without a connection with the world, since Nobile 159W has extensive communication capabilities. It possesses a V.92 fax modem, an integrated 10/100 Mbps Ethernet card, a Bluetooth expansion port, and a 4-in-1 card reader.

The available optional extras include a PCMCIA TV Tuner, as well as a unique Port Replicator which, unlike other similar devices, is connected to the VGA Out port rather than to a USB port, thus saving the highly demanded USB ports for external devices while providing numerous additional ports.

Overall, Nobile 159W is a versatile multimedia center based on notebook form-factor which is able to meet the strictest requirements of gamers, managers, graphic designers, and all other individuals looking for a reliable high-performance machine with excellent graphics and communication possibilities. Nobile 159W will be available across Eastern Europe, Middle East and Asia by mid-February.

Global Resource Enterprises, LLC Announces that it Has Been Appointed Official U.S. and Middle East Agent for the Latest Hi-Tech Emergency Alert Warning System

C.A.T.S. is a network that allows Mobile phone users world wide to register individual locations to their mobile phones so that emergency warnings can be sent to those phones if an emergency occurs in that area. As well as being able to alert the public, the system can alert businesses and can be accessed by schools, colleges, hospitals, the utilities and the emergency services to broadcast information and to communicate internally and between departments.

(PRWEB) February 7, 2022 -- Recently there have been critical situations around the world where the CATS network could have proved a lifesaver had it been installed. The system has been built to run on global platforms and can be up and running anywhere in the world within a matter of weeks. Next month, representatives from our partner in the U.K. will be visiting the US to discuss the system with interested parties in Washington D.C.

C.A.T.S. is a network that allows Mobile phone users world wide to register individual locations to their mobile phones so that emergency warnings can be sent to those phones if an emergency occurs in that area. As well as being able to alert the public, the system can alert businesses and can be accessed by schools, colleges, hospitals, the utilities and the emergency services to broadcast information and to communicate internally and between departments.

C.A.T.S. is an important tool in the global war against terrorism. Never before has there been a 24/7 media channel that can deliver information directly to the public in any one given geographical area within seconds. In the event of a serious incident, subscribers receive a detailed and informative sms text message relative to the area that they have registered on their cell phone which informs them of what course of action to follow.

The C.A.T.S. network is the first sms text message global news network that has been especially built to get critical information to members of the public in seconds.

C.A.T.S. is a global media emergency news channel that the emergency services have access to, allowing them to send critical information to members of the public who have registered on the C.A.T.S. network. If a serious threat or incident occurs within a particular area then messages can be sent to all the phones that have registered that particular area on the network quickly.

If an alert is sent out related to any of the zip codes that you have registered on the C.A.T.S. U.S.A. network, you will receive a detailed and informative sms text message from the appropriate department with desired actions about the incident in the area.

In addition to C.A.T.S., Global Resource Enterprises, LLC will introduce TextSite which is a web based texting system that can hold any amount of names and mobile phone numbers in it’s database. By having a textsite an organisation can communicate quickly with large amounts of people thereby saving considerably in communication costs. TextSite is a very efficient method of communication as a large group of respondents can be sent a message at the click of a button (just like an email can be copied to many people). Because the message is sent as an sms to mobile handsets the respondents can be anywhere in the world and they will receive the message rapidly and efficiently.

Eazytext Communications Ltd, who developed the hi-tech system with the help of Government funding also sells emergency mobile phones for children, the elderly and the disabled, and have recently launched (in the U.K.) the national Childwatch and Community Network which enables all UK communities to have their own SMS text messaging emergency alerting system for the protection of children and as a tool in the "fight against crime". Global Resource Enterprises, LLC is an international business development and strategic partnering firm in the Washington, DC area.

Telestrator Invention Wins Emmy Just In Time For Super Bowl

The Telestrator, which enriched SuperBowl 39 coverage last night was first introduced to a national audience 23 years ago by John Madden during Super Bowl 16. The invention is now used world-wide on many kinds of news and sports events. Physicist Dr. Leonard Reiffel, inventor of the Telestrator was just awarded an individual 2004 National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Emmy for pioneering the Telestrator and "Telestration". Engineering Emmys typically go to companies or groups. Only two individual engineering awards have been made by the Academy in over 10 years.

(PRWEB) February 7, 2022 -- Twenty three years ago, TV coverage of Football and many other sports changed dramatically when the Telestrator—that now famous and familiar TV sketching device that enables experts to draw those glowing free-hand explanations right on your screen -- made its national debut before the huge audiences watching SuperBowl XVI. The device has been used globally ever since. But this year, its inventor, Chicago-based physicist Dr. Len Reiffel, was especially proud of his brainchild when those enlightening scribbles appeared on TV screens during last night's Super Bowl XXXIX

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences had just presented Reiffel with its 2004 Engineering EMMY for his pioneering efforts in developing Telestrator technology. Reiffel’s award is only the second in more than 10 years given to an individual rather than to a company or group.

The first public showing of Telestrator was in the late 60’s when Reiffel hosted a TV series on science at WTTW-Ch11, Chicago in cooperation with the Chicago City Colleges. The first sale of a Telestrator was also in Chicago, at WBBM-Ch2 in the mid-seventies. (Early pictures of Telestrator in use at Ch2 are available. The early Telestrators were almost as big as small refrigerators. Nowadays high school kids could build one with a few chips and a touch screen.) The original application at Ch2 was in the weather segment, but Johnny Morris (ex-Chicago Bear and Sportscaster for WBBM) evaluated its use for NFL games, and Johnny and Reiffel’s team tried it out on a few Chicago Bear games. CBS then used Telestrator in the 1981 NFL Playoff Games, and at Super Bowl XVI, which allowed John Madden to be the first one to take The Telestrator national. Reiffel recalls, “When Madden first used The Telestrator in the playoffs and Super bowl, I was standing right next to him ready to help with any malfunctions or confusion. I soon learned that he got very excited when on-air. He’s a very big guy. As he jumped around and pointed and drew his “Telestration”, there were times when he almost knocked me right out of the announce booth.” Madden, of course, quickly became the most visible user of Telestrator technology in America.

When the Awards Committee asked Madden if he thought that the Telestrator was Emmy worthy, he said this in typical John Madden fashion: “Heck, I don’t know what’s taken you folks so long. The Telestrator is a great technical device that deserves the award.”

In its recommendation for the Award the Committee report stated: “There are so many telestration devices employed and manufactured today by a number of companies around the world that one must know that the Telestrator has made a tremendous impact. Telestration equipment is utilized in all aspects of media, and multi-media, education, and corporate communications – in live and interactive presentations or programs. Just a quick search on “Google” with a key word “Telestrator” will bring you enormous amounts of information (4700 hits) on uses for this technology. In our broadcast television world it is hard to watch a sporting event, weather cast, or news show that does not employ telestration techniques and technology.”

As for Len Reiffel, a prolific inventor and holder of about fifty patents, he has moved on to other things. Exelar Corporation. (www.exelarmedical.com), which he heads, is developing his inventions for improving radiation treatment of cancer using a novel superconducting magnet technique. Another series of his inventions, designed to create “Attentive Spaces” that can conduct many complex tasks simultaneously, is being developed by his Luxelar Corporation (www.luxelar.com). “In an Attentive Conference Room, a whole group of John Maddens could do Telestrator-like things just by waving their fingers in mid-air. Now that would be quite a sight,” Reiffel says with a smile.

Jambalaya Launches Only Complete Streaming Song Recorder; Audio Xtract Users Get MP3s Without Fees

Sales of the popular Apple iPod and other MP3 players are exploding, and with them, the popularity of unique solutions to make streaming music portable. Audio Xtract Professional Edition, from Jambalaya Brands, is the only complete software solution for consumers who want to record streaming music and take it with them. And unlike some recorders, the stream is automatically split into MP3 files by Audio Xtract and tagged with artist name, song title and genre.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 3, 2022 - Sales of the popular Apple iPod and other MP3 players are exploding, and with them, the popularity of unique solutions to make streaming music portable. Audio Xtract Professional Edition, from Jambalaya Brands, is the only complete software solution for consumers who want to record streaming music and take it with them. And unlike some recorders, the stream is automatically split into MP3 files by Audio Xtract and tagged with artist name, song title and genre.

“Audio Xtract Pro is all you need. It records anything you can play through your PC,” says Gene Schenberg, VP Business Development for Jambalaya. “If you want to listen and record from one of the 8000 stations already in the database, you’re just one click away. If you subscribe to a service, Audio Xtract Pro offers a Music Services mode that records from any music source out there.”

Before Audio Xtract, consumers had two choices: Pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars to fill their players from one of the popular sites selling song downloads, or risk a battle with the RIAA by using the peer-to-peer downloading networks to acquire music. For millions of consumers, neither option makes sense. Using Audio Xtract is just like using a VCR or TiVo, giving you the flexibility to record now, and listen later. And because you can record up to 8 streams at once, it doesn’t take long to fill even the largest MP3 players, without any fees.

What makes Audio Xtract Professional Edition unique? It’s the only software solution in the world to offer the convenience of 8000 stations you can play and record in Auto Recording mode, plus the capability to record literally any streamed music—whatever the source—using the powerful Music Services mode. With extra software included that lets you rip, edit and convert all your music files, plus a robust scheduling application, you’ll have everything you need to get started right away. And song tagging is a cinch with the powerful new application, ID3myMP3. Whether you load your player directly, or burn your favorites to CDs, you’re ready to take your music with you, wherever you go.

Audio Xtract is the only complete streaming music recorder available in retail stores—including Fry’s, CompUSA, Office Depot, and J&R;—as well as through the Jambalaya Brands website.

World Records in SoC for Wireless Sensing - CSEM and XEMICS Partnership Enables Excellence in Product Development

Wireless sensing has emerged as a major research topic in the recent years and is now triggering a growing demand for the deployment of low-power wireless sensor networks in customer applications. The ongoing collaboration between CSEM Centre Suisse d’Electronique et de Microtechnique SA and XEMICS in this field has resulted in a new ultra-low-power System-on-Chip (SoC) offering world record performance.

Neuchâtel (PRWEB) February 3, 2022 -- Wireless sensing has emerged as a major research topic in the recent years and is now triggering a growing demand for the deployment of low-power wireless sensor networks in customer applications. The ongoing collaboration between CSEM Centre Suisse d’Electronique et de Microtechnique SA and XEMICS in this field has resulted in a new ultra-low-power System-on-Chip (SoC) offering world record performance. The two partners will present the new SoC at the coming International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco on February 6-10, 2005. As a result of these outstanding achievements, XEMICS and CSEM have decided to reinforce their cooperation in the field of wireless sensing for future products.

Over the last few years, the well-established collaboration between CSEM and XEMICS has led to successful innovations and record breaking solutions by combining CSEM’s broad know-how in applied research with XEMICS’ competencies in marketing, development and production. Specifically, this cooperation has enabled the development of an ultra low-power SoC for wireless sensor networks (WiseNET™), which combines the low-power, low-voltage RF-CMOS expertise offered by CSEM with the capabilities of XEMICS for production of ultra-low-power integrated solutions. As a consequence, the steering committee decided to reinforce their future collaboration targeting short range connectivity solutions that will outperform existing products in terms of power consumption, size and data sensing performance.

The most recent and spectacular results of the collaboration – a complete SoC for wireless sensor networks, including an RF CMOS transceiver covering up to one kilometer (line of sight) with record breaking performance – will be presented at the coming ISSCC. The new receiver is able to work with a current as small as 2 mA and can be operated at a power supply voltage down to 0.9 V. Thanks to the dedicated WiseMAC low-power protocol, the low duty-cycle radio can achieve an autonomy of typically 5 years using a single 1.5 V AA alkaline battery. Both partners are convinced that with joint efforts they will be able to further improve these characteristics and enter new markets.

The key success factors of the collaboration are the exploitable synergies and clearly defined roles between the two partners. Christian Enz, Vice-President Microelectronics at CSEM envisions great advantages from this cooperation: “XEMICS’ know-how of market demands will help us focus our applied research activities on future needs. This is the only way to provide real technological progress in this field.” Jean-Paul Bardyn, Vice President Research & Development at XEMICS adds: “Thanks to synergies and the technologies developed at CSEM we will be able to provide new applications for growing markets like environmental sensing, body LAN (Local Area Network), home automation, human interface devices and the medical market.”

The two companies pursue an expansion strategy and complement their existing teams with telecommunications specialists.

Fujitsu Announces Hybrid Ethernet and Metro ADM Chip for Gigabit Ethernet and PDH Transport

Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) today rolls out its ETHOS (ETHernet Over SDH/SONET) device, a pioneering product for full-rate Gigabit Ethernet and E1/DS1 access in Metro and Access networks, designed in collaboration with AimCom, a leading-edge design and development company specialising in Next Generation Carrier Class Optical Networking, based in The Netherlands.

Frankfurt (PRWEB) February 3, 2022 -- Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) today rolls out its ETHOS (ETHernet Over SDH/SONET) device, a pioneering product for full-rate Gigabit Ethernet and E1/DS1 access in Metro and Access networks, designed in collaboration with AimCom, a leading-edge design and development company specialising in Next Generation Carrier Class Optical Networking, based in The Netherlands.

The first certified samples of ETHOS have been shipped to customers for development and system testing. Its system-on-chip design enables cost effective and very compact customer located equipment; it is equally well-suited as the core device on Gigabit Ethernet interface cards in Multiservice aggregation equipment.

"The ETHOS device brings a new level of Ethernet and SONET/SDH integration to the access and metro-edge markets," said Simon Stanley, Principal Analyst with Earlswood Marketing. "The need for extra capacity in metro and access networks is fuelled by the rapidly growing number of end-users of broadband access via ADSL or cable modems, and new Internet applications such as video streaming and file sharing. This makes it one of the high growth segments in optical networking over the next few years."

"Telecom equipment companies are today demanding highly integrated components to create their compact, leading-edge products for next generation SDH aggregation networks. That’s why Fujitsu, together with AimCom developed ETHOS - a key building block that enables developers to create a hybrid solution for Ethernet and leased line
access. At the same time, it is my personal opinion, that ETHOS will help drive down costs by integrating support for VC-12 based grooming, line or ring protection and system timing," comments Dirk Weinsziehr, Senior Director, Marketing at FME.

The support for full-rate Gigabit Ethernet over protected SDH networks enables development of reliable, high bandwidth, network termination equipment. The standards based SDH implementation enables integration into existing optical networks, while Virtual Concatenation and LCAS enable dynamic bandwidth allocation in steps of VT-1.5 or VC-12, VC-3 or VC-4, according to service demand for end-users.

ETHOS is designed for equipment in customer premises access or metro aggregation networks. It also targets equipment for the wireless and DSLAM backhaul infrastructure due to its dual access technologies: providing an upgrade path as the access network migrates from cell based over E1/DS1 or STM-1/OC-3, to packet based over Ethernet.

Features
ETHOS is a fully integrated, single chip, add-drop multiplexer. Four line ports at STM-4/OC-12 or STM-1/OC-3 are provided, each supporting direct connection to SFP modules. There are 4 E1/DS1 ports, and 4 Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet ports on the access side, as well as higher & lower order cross-connect fabrics and a Telecom bus for port expansion. Ethernet frames are mapped via GFP, LAPS, or PPP, Virtual Concatenation and low latency LCAS.

The advanced feature set further includes an integrated system timing generator, Ethernet flow control, support for Jumbo frames, TCP friendly rate controllers for fine grained bandwidth assignment, and packet insertion and extraction for next generation carrier class Ethernet applications.

Availability:
ETHOS is designed in Fujitsu's 0.18 micron process, and delivered in a 756-pin BGA-TE package. Comprehensive support is available through datasheets, application notes, device model, reference design, and software. The device is currently sampling and will be available in volume production in March 2005.

iPodlounge Announces Editorial Policy on Dangerous, Cloned, and Illicit iPod Accessories

Leading independent iPod information resource fights consumer exploitation and deception, bars advertising and coverage for associated vendors

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) February 3, 2022 -- iPodlounge (www.ipodlounge.com), the world's leading independent resource of information about Apple Computer's iPod portable digital music players, today announced dramatic new editorial policies regarding dangerous, cloned, and illicit iPod accessories. "As the iPod economy has grown over the last three years, many great new accessories and merchants have entered the marketplace," explained Jeremy Horwitz, Editor-in-Chief of iPodlounge, "but there's also more junk and consumer exploitation out there than ever before. Our first priority is to keep our readers and their iPods safe from harm."

Updated numerous times daily, iPodlounge hosts hundreds of the most objective, comprehensive reviews of iPod accessories ever written, including brand-new releases and products dating back to the 2001 "first-generation" iPod. The site's wildly popular Buyers' Guide includes a letter grade-style "report card" to the reviews, giving readers an easy, two-page summary of the best and worst products of the iPod economy.

The new policies address three major areas of concern to iPodlounge and its readers, who numbered approximately 2,000,000 in December, 2004 alone. First, iPodlounge discusses potentially dangerous iPod charging accessories that can cause damage to iPods, themselves, and possibly even their users. Under the new policy, iPodlounge now automatically issues "D-" and "F" grades to defective and dangerous accessories, respectively, conspicuously identifies products that use properly tested components, and reserves the right to deny editorial coverage and advertising space to affected accessories if necessary.

Second, iPodlounge addresses the cloning of certain well-known iPod accessories by knock-off manufacturers, creating a policy whereby "cloned" products are clearly defined and barred from both advertising and editorial coverage. In recent months, knock-off vendors have used online auction services and web sites to sell products under the same names as the authentic goods, disappointing consumers who receive inferior-grade versions of what they believed they had ordered. Vendors of the authentic goods have asked iPodlounge for its support in fighting counterfeiters, and iPodlounge has gladly obliged.

Third, iPodlounge exposes disreputable and/or potentially illegal conduct by certain vendors of iPod accessories, denying editorial coverage and advertising space to companies that exploit or deceive their customers, as well as those that market products of questionable legality to an audience that includes young iPod owners. "Our readers range in age from 7 to 77," said Dennis Lloyd, Publisher of iPodlounge, "and we don't want to steer them towards potentially bad experiences. Even if we have to modestly limit our editorial coverage and advertising revenues, we believe that these policies are the responsible and appropriate response to the trust our readers have placed in us since our founding."

The full text of iPodlounge's new editorial policies is available at http://www.ipodlounge.com/safetypolicy/ effective immediately.

Since the very beginning of Apple's iPod revolution, iPodlounge has been the leading independent provider of information on iPod digital audio players, accessories, and related software. Established online only days after the October 23, 2021 debut of the iPod, the iPodlounge.com web site hosts daily news updates, independent product reviews and editorial content, incredible discussion forums and photo galleries, software downloads and self-help pages. In the month of December 2004 alone, iPodlounge reached an estimated two million readers. Named one of Time Magazine's 50 top web sites in 2004, and featured on CNBC in January, 2005, iPodlounge is located in Irvine, California and is not affiliated with Apple Computer or the manufacturers of any iPod accessories. The iPodlounge Buyers' Guide is a downloadable digital magazine-style edition of the iPodlounge web site, available for free at ipodlounge.com/buyersguide/.

Brighton Hires Marketing Authority for RFID, B2B, Supply Chain Logistics and Warehousing Industries

Brighton, a full-service advertising, public relations and digital marketing agency, has hired Jane Allred, an acknowledged authority in marketing RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology and supply chain logistics. At Brighton, Allred will develop marketing strategies and programs for RFID, supply chain logistics, warehousing and cargo clients, and will spearhead the agency's new business efforts within those market segments.

(PRWEB) February 2, 2022 -- Brighton (www.brightondm.com) announced the appointment of Jane Allred, an acknowledged authority in marketing RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology and supply chain logistics, as senior vice president. Allred previously ran her own business-to-business technology marketing firm, Allred Marketing, Inc., based in Phoenix, AZ. She recently gained national recognition in the emerging RFID market by producing the RFID Knowledge Center for the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA). The Center showcased at ProMat 2005, January 10-13, at Chicago’s McCormick Place South.

At Brighton, Allred will focus on development of marketing strategies and programs for supply chains logistics and RFID clients. By combining her technology expertise with Brighton’s traditional and innovative digital marketing capabilities, Allred will also spearhead Brighton’s business development efforts within those market segments.

“Logistics is important to commerce, and RFID represents one of the greatest technology shifts of the 21st Century” said Roger Yount, president of Brighton. “As businesses fully comprehend the benefits of RFID, we will be in a dynamic market position to serve the numerous segments of this emerging market. Jane is one of the best in the field.

Vishay Siliconix Half-Bridge N-Channel MOSFET Drivers Feature 1-A Drive Capability for up to 50-V Systems and Impedance Under 1 Ohm

The new SiP41103, SiP41104, and SiP41105 dual MOSFET drivers, which drive both the lower and upper MOSFETs in a half-bridge configuration, work in systems with supply voltages from 4.5 V up to 50 V.

Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) February 2, 2022 -- Siliconix Incorporated (NASDAQ: SILI), an 80.4%-owned subsidiary of Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH), today announced four new high-speed, half-bridge n-channel MOSFET driver ICs designed for use in high-frequency, high-current, single- and multiphase dc-to-dc switching power supplies, including one driver with a brake for brushless motor control applications.

The new SiP41103, SiP41104, and SiP41105 dual MOSFET drivers, which drive both the lower and upper MOSFETs in a half-bridge configuration, work in systems with supply voltages from 4.5 V up to 50 V. Designed to supply output currents up to 1 A, these three drivers operate at switching frequencies of 250 kHz to 1 MHz with a driver impedance of less than 1 ohm, allowing for reduced capacitor and inductor size. The new SiP42101, which is equipped with a brake function for motor drive applications, operates at 50 kHz.

The family's break-before-make logic prevents shoot-through currents in the external MOSFETs as well as the internal bootstrap diode, which drives an n-channel high-side MOSFET that reduces the number of external components. A shutdown/control pin is used to enable the drivers, and a synchronous enable pin is additionally provided on the SiP41103 and SiP41105 to allow disabling of the low-side or "synchronous rectifier" MOSFET to maximize efficiency at light power loads.

An undervoltage lockout feature prevents driving of the MOSFET gates when the supply voltage (at VDD) is less than is specified, thereby ensuring that output MOSFETs are only turned on when sufficient gate voltage is present. The devices have a shutdown quiescent current of less than 5 microamps.

All four new MOSFET drivers are available in both standard and lead (Pb)-free packages. The SiP42101 and SiP41103 have an MLP33-10 package, while the SiP41104 has an SO-8 package and the SiP41105 a TSSOP-16 PowerPAK. They are rated for operation over the -40 to +85 degrees Celsius industrial temperature range, with applications including high-current synchronous buck (step-down) converters, multiphase dc-to-dc converters, asynchronous-to-synchronous adaptations, and computer dc-to-dc converters. The SiP42101 joins Siliconix's existing family of motor drivers, including the popular Si9986, which has integrated 1-A MOSFETs.

Samples and production quantities of the SiP42101, SiP41103, SiP41104, and SiP41105 are available now, with lead times of 8 to 10 weeks for larger orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery in 1000-piece quantities is $1.96 for the SiP41101 and $1.83 for the SiP41103, SiP41104, SiP41105, and SiP42101.

Siliconix is a leading manufacturer of power MOSFETs, power ICs, analog switches, and multiplexers for computers, cell phones, fixed communications networks, automobiles, and other consumer and industrial electronic systems. With 2003 worldwide sales of $392.1 million, the Company's facilities include a Class 1 wafer fab dedicated to the manufacture of power products in Santa Clara, Calif., and an affiliated Class 1 wafer fab located in Itzehoe, Germany. The Company's products are also fabricated by subcontractors in Japan, Germany, China, Taiwan, and the United States. Assembly and test facilities include a company-owned facility in Taiwan, a joint venture in Shanghai, China, and subcontractors in the Philippines, China, Taiwan, and Israel.

Vishay, a Fortune 1,000 Company listed on the NYSE, is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, rectifiers, transistors, optoelectronics, and selected ICs) and passive electronic components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, and transducers).

Bedford, MA (PRWEB) February 1, 2022 -- NoteFix (www.notefix.com), a division of Pre-Owned Electronics and a national leader in laptop repair, reports that 1 of 5 reported notebook computer problems is related to software configuration. This report is based on analysis of over 20,000 laptops that NoteFix has repaired.

Configuration parameters are defined by users based on a number of preferences. These preferences include the laptop's Internet connection method, printer options, schedule for software updates, as well as the definition of hardware ports to external hard drives, modems, and other devices. These settings are often set once and forgotten, only to later become corrupted files that manifest themselves as hardware problems.

These issues can often be remedied at home, alleviating the need for sending a laptop in for repair. Sometimes, however, a seasoned technician is required to differentiate a hardware problem from a software or configuration problem. For those users who need technical repairs, NoteFix offers an innovative, Internet-based high-speed laptop computer repair service. The company's flat-rate pricing model ensures most repairs will be completed for less than $350 with a turnaround time under 48 hours.

It is also important to ensure that the configuration settings are re-set upon the receipt of a repaired laptop. In some instances the environment for repairing a laptop may be slightly different than the user's environment, and the differences may initially seem like an incomplete repair. Resetting preferences, especially related to Internet connections, will usually resolve this.

Electric Skateboard Competition Hits All-time High

Raptor Extreme breaks price barrier at just $499

(PRWEB) February 1, 2022 -- The electric skateboard market is once more heating up with the addition of the Raptor Xtreme – an in-company rival to the top selling Exkate powerboard, long considered the ‘most expensive electric skateboard in the world’ at a retail price of $999. The Raptor Extreme is manufactured by Exkate but in China. It is essentially the same board with a little less top speed for only $499.99

Slide4less has long supported technological innovations and market competition in motorized skateboard development. Thanks to some hard work, we can now offer the consumer a chance to select just the right board from a multitude of models, styles and prices and purchase it easily and directly from us on-line.

As a relative newcomer to extreme sports, you might choose a less-expensive option such as the Raptor 4.0 Extreme. This is a 40-inch longboard with fully proportional wireless remote control for acceleration and braking. It has a 400-watt motor and cruises up to 10 miles on a single charge at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour. This board is great for newcomers and seasoned veterans alike, due to its very reasonable price.

But if you are experienced and ready for the ‘grand-daddy’ of electric skateboards, step on up to the Exkate, used and enjoyed by professional extreme sports enthusiasts and skateboarders. It’s not cheap and may well be the most expensive electric skateboard on the market with a starting price of $999, but you have never (and may never again) try a machine as ‘tight’ as this. The hand-held, wireless remote is virtually flawless, works well in any conditions and makes this board ‘stop on a dime.’ Long-lasting batteries keep it going for miles and miles and can be easily recharged, and the motor-braking system is unique to the market.

These and other board styles are featured exclusively on a website devoted entirely to electric longboards: www.electriclongboards.com and are also available via www.slide4less.com.

All board designs offered for sale by Slide4less represent cutting-edge developments in electrical, remote-operated and compact vehicles. These are the only electric skateboards in the world to offer truly effective remote operation, a necessity for rider safety.

“Motorized boards will likely become the world’s most advanced vehicles with innovations that rival any other vehicle,” says Steve Steinberg of Slide4less. “They are inherently dangerous, but sophisticated acceleration, braking and board control are key to making these machines effective for extreme sports enthusiasts.”

Steinberg notes that riders assume substantial risks with motorized boards, as with any other extreme sport. (Could that be a factor in the board’s wildly expanding popularity? Decide for yourself.)

“Remote, hands-free boards require a unique frequency and a handset system which uses the rider as the exclusive antennae in an attempt to eliminate interference, which can jeopardize a rider's ability to maintain balance and control,” he explained.

Given this, Steinberg predicts that “these extreme machines will offer a higher level of fun and excitement and the incredible precision-crafted electronics make them a reality for serious riders and extreme individuals.”

Stock Exkate boards feature a cruising range of 12 miles on a single battery charge, with custom, high-power Lithium battery packs available for purchase separately. The boards offer an out-of-box, blistering top speed of 22 miles per hour.

“These are the only vehicles in the world to give you a functional and safe wireless remote throttle and braking system, right at your fingertips,” says Slide4less partner Darren Romar. “These skateboards are designed to emulate the feel and responsiveness that snowboarders and surfers love. This is an extreme sport that does not require waves, snow, wind or hills. People in the flatlands of the Midwest can have just as much fun on these boards as those living in hilly Sausalito, Calif. Maybe even more!”

Powerboards are one of the most environmentally friendly vehicles available on the market, with strikingly silent operation and zero emissions. It is snowboarding with no lift line, wakeboarding without a boat and skateboarding without your feet ever touching the ground. You just step on and accelerate! With the X-24 motor specially built to suit the powerboard, you can blast away to top speed in under four seconds. The extreme torque will easily pull you and a friend up the steepest hills, and the revolutionary longboard truck eliminates speed wobble while providing for an astonishing 10-foot turning radius. The unique bushings are formulated for the powerboard to absorb road shock while keeping you in firm control via the wireless hand controller.

Slide4less offers all new powerboard models and also pre-owned or refurbished boards for less. We carry natural-color decks and highly customized board styles including black, white and blue with blue tires; black, white and red with red tires; and natural wood with either red or blue tires.

All of our electric skateboards can be easily maneuvered through a crowd, yet can attain very high speeds. These are cutting-edge, hand-made electric vehicles with no expense spared. All parts are engineered and machined specifically for the board and not “adapted” from existing skateboard and electric vehicle parts.

You can test ride an electric skateboard for free. Contact us for more information. And most importantly – Have Fun!

WARNING: These electric skateboards are designed to be high-speed, extreme machines and should be operated with extreme care. Interference from overhead high-voltage wires can interfere with operation under certain circumstances. We recommend operation in a wide-open area that has limited signal interference. Motorized skateboards are illegal on many public roads. Owners of these boards assume all risks of operation. Helmet, gloves, and leathers are highly recommended.
