AP9 BusinessMax Uncovers the Latest High-Tech Business Gadgets

AP9 BusinessMax offers small businesses valuable savings on office supplies, equipment and healthcare needs.

Stamford, Conn. (PRWEB) June 30, 2021 -- Small businesses succeed or fail largely on the basis of the products and services they provide their customers. Members of AP9 BusinessMax, a leading discount membership program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, realize that the right equipment can often mean the difference between fulfilling customer needs in a timely, accurate and consistent manner and coming up short in their customers’ eyes.

The technology revolution of the last decade has increased the speed of communications, production and delivery in ways we never could have imagined twenty years ago. Small-business owners who are members of AP9 BusinessMax can easily and affordably take advantage of the latest technological advancements in business equipment, communications gear and more from top of the line brands like BlackBerry, Treo, and Mac. Members can access their money-saving benefits through AP9 BusinessMax online at DealPass.

While not every technological innovation can be considered “progress,” AP9 BusinessMax offers a few ideas on some recent gadgets that can help small-business owners keep pace with their bigger competitors:
- The BlackBerry 7100t is one of the hottest items on the market. It combines wireless phone, email and data access in a small handset design, along with a Bluetooth hands-free headset. Set up a tee time with clients during your morning commute, stay in touch with prospects while you’re running errands, or send a gift basket to a distributor while enjoying dinner with your family.
- The Treo 650 Smartphone offers you email, an organizer, messaging and web access, with built-in Bluetooth technology for wireless communications — just for starters. It also comes with an MP3 player, a digital camera that shoots videos, and a whole lot more. Whether you need to contact a client from your car or send product specs to a vendor, the Treo 650 can help you deliver your message loud and clear.
- The Mac mini offers a G4 processor, up to 1GB PC2700 main memory, a Radeon 9200 graphics chip, and a hard drive with room for up to 80GB — all in a 6.5-inch square, 2-inch tall box. If you’re short on office space but long on ideas, the Mac mini can fill your needs. And with a suggested retail price under $500, it won’t use up much cash, either.
- Worried about theft? The Linksys Wireless-G Internet Video Camera can send a live video feed with sound through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world, which can help you keep an eye on your most valuable assets, even from the comfort of your home.

In addition to significant discounts on business equipment, AP9 BusinessMax offers members substantial savings on travel, corporate services and supplies, healthcare needs and much more.

Alkaline Battery On Track For Extinction

Alkaline batteries are everywhere. They power toys, games, radios, telephones. And it's time they were replaced.

(PRWEB) June 30, 2021 -- Steve Picotte, and independent inventor residing in Topeka, Kansas, has completed two prototype devices to replace standard alkaline batteries in most applications. The device can be built in different sizes and configurations, depending on the need of the unit to be powered.

Picotte says that the device is non-rechargeable, and that it's useful life is rated at five years. "It really is exciting," says Picotte, "when you watch it work the first time."

Picotte thought of the device in 1995, while taking electronics courses at a local technical school. "I worked nights while attending school," he says, "and it came to me like an epiphany. I saw exactly how it was built, how it worked, in my mind. I took a break and sketched it on paper."

His current prototype is designed to deliver 12V power to various applications, and other projects include power supplies for cordless telephones and cell phones. "I know I get tired of having to recharge my phones on a constant basis," Picotte said.

He has entered negotiations with a Chinese manufacturer to mass-produce the devices, but is also discussing his prototype with various toy manufacturers around the globe. "It would be awesome to buy a hand-held game that didn't require batteries, or a flashlight, or anything!" he exclaimed.

“Alkaline battery sales in the United States in 2003 were over $6 billion dollars, and are predicted to climb to over $18 billion dollars by 2009, “ quoted Picotte. “I think those figures will change within the next year.” He said with a grin.

Picotte claims he is also considering other applications for the device, including electric automobiles and radio-controlled vehicles. “There’s really no limit on the number of applications. I think of new things every day, new ways to use this device, including standard consumer products and even military use.”

Game Console Development Doesn't Have to be a War Of The Worlds

Nurve Networks LLC developers of the XGameStation Micro Edition educational game console kit releases the new XGameStation Pico Edition.

Silicon Valley, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2021 -- Nurve Networks LLC's new XGameStation Pico Edition educational game console development kit is now shipping worldwide. The Pico Edition is a follow up to the previously released pre-assembled XGameStation Micro Edition. The Pico Edition is for students and hobbyists that actually want to build the system by hand from a kit of parts. The Pico Edition comes as a kit complete with a solderless breadboard and all the components to build an entire working game console in about 1-2 hours.

Video games generate billions of dollars in revenue each year and game programming books occupy rows of bookstore shelf space. Video game development has made its way into college curriculums and entire game programming universities have emerged. But video games run on advanced hardware, the design of which is a black art that few understand.

For more than a decade, books by Computer Scientist and best-selling game development author Andre LaMothe (his latest title "Tricks of the 3D Game Programming Gurus") have taught generations of game developers to create today's cutting-edge video games. Now, his focus is changing from video game software to video game hardware with the unveiling of the XGameStation Micro and Pico Editions, a revolutionary new way to learn about the hardware that goes into building game consoles themselves.

The XGameStation Pico Edition (XGS PE) is a complete game development kit inspired by classic systems such as the Atari 2600, 800, Apple II, C64 and Nintendo Entertainment System. The XGS PE kit includes a kit complete with all the parts, necessary cables, an eBook written by Andre LaMothe on the design and programming of the XGS Pico Edition along with all the software necessary to create your own games, demos, and experiments.

Armed with a complete understanding of how the system was built and operates, users then create their own games or play games made by their peers. The online community at http://www.xgamestation.com completes the system's appeal, providing a place for XGameStation developers to share ideas, software and even discuss hardware modifications.

The system plugs into any NTSC TV and supports vintage Atari 2600 controllers. XGameStation Pico Edition's games and applications are stored on the internal processor's Flash memory, allowing users to develop and download their games from a PC using the accompanying tools.

In short, by empowering hobbyists and game developers with a game platform they can truly call their own, the XGameStation Pico and Micro Editions are reviving the magic of programming and hardware hacking for systems like the Apple II, Atari 800 and Commodore 64.

The official Website for the XGameStation is http://www.xgamestation.com, where you will find Media, Downloads, Demos, and more information on purchasing the XGS Pico and Micro Editions.

Photo3-D allows anyone to take 3-D photographs with their digital camera.

Exeter, NH. (PRWEB) June 29, 2021 -- Mission3-D™ announced today the launch of their Photo3-D™ 303 Kit for use on Macintosh computers running system OSX or above. Before now, the Photo3-D™ kit, which makes 3-D photography accessible to everyone, has only been available for Windows. Now any inclined consumer, gadget lover or graphic designer can easily capture, create and share eye-popping 3-D photographs.

A Macintosh version of the Photo3-D™ 303 Kit has been a common request to Mission3-D, as the Mac world is heavily populated by visual artists, designers, and digital photographers.

Photo3-D is the first affordable, user-friendly device that enables anyone to easily take 3-D photographs. Photo3-D works with any digital camera (with a standard tripod socket on the bottom), and the full product package - Photo3-D 303 Kit - includes everything needed to easily take, see and share 3-D photographs. It takes just minutes to learn, and anyone who knows how to operate a digital camera and home computer can create their own incredible 3-D photographs with a few simple steps. Like a 3-D movie, you have to wear the included 3-D glasses to see the effects.

“It’s amazing to see how people react when they see a 3-D photo, especially children,” said Michael DesRochers, managing partner of Mission3-D. “With Photo3-D, your pictures will show real depth and dimension, become more life-like, and you are finally able to see yourself the way the world sees you. Photo 3-D is a remarkable product. It’s fun to use for parties and events, and we are thrilled to deliver this simple-to-use technology to the Mac community.”

About Mission3-D, LLC: Mission3-D is committed to bringing the joy of personal 3-D photography into everyone's home.

Making Audio Products Yourself At Home Has Never Been Easier

You do not need to go to a recording studio to record spoken word information products ever again. The software and hardware to do it with a computer has never been cheaper or easier to master.

(PRWEB) June 28, 2021 -- Computers and digital storage is faster, cheaper and more powerful right now than ever before. Software and hardware to professionally record and edit spoken word information products is a skill every person needing to communicate and distribute information to the masses should now learn.

Sony Audio Studio with a PC has the power to record, mix and edit hours of spoken word content that can be distributed on CD or streamed over the internet. Examples of the microphones, audio interfaces and suggested software are explained and offered at http://www.internetaudioguy.com . There is a free ebook there to help you completely understand the self recording and publishing
process.

Mac users have software such as Sound Recorder with OS 10 or Garageband that works great, but the MAC standard for recording is Pro Tools software. It is more expensive than the other PC or Mac solutions mentioned and is really not the easiest system to learn for recording beginners, but Pro Tools is an incredible product.

When you learn to record your self with the proper equipment it opens up a world of communication and product creation possibilites such as:

CD creation
Audio downloads
Streaming audio
Audio books
Sales and training updates
Podcasting
Internet Radio and whole lot more
Telephone interviews
Archiving from tape
Capturing live events

I believe, the most exciting reason to learn the audio editing and layering production skills, skills that consider easy by audio and video producers, is now easy to accomplish by anyone owning a computer and quiet room to record. Becauase of affordable microphones, audio cards, and mixing/recording/editing software like Sound Forge, these easy production skills will allow everyone to easily move over to the next frontier of self info-publishing, home video production.

Video works flawlessly on the web because many streaming video formats, especially, Flash or FLV formate.. See examples at http://www.internetvideoguy.com . With broadband so common place and computers so powerful, web pages can now be infomercials, training modules and entertainment just the internet's counterpart of radio and television. The web is another media of broadcast affordable by everyone. The fact is, if you learn audio production skills, you are just one step away from learning simple video editing, mixing and layering enabling you to make DVD, streaming video or download content.

Google believes this so much, that they have started the https://upload.video.google.com program available to everyone who can create video for sale or pay per view. More about that at http://www.MakeVideoToSell.com

Winegard’s Bob Howell Emphasizes DTV Education and Bottom Line to Satellite Installers in Keynote Speech at Satellite Expo 2005

Detailing key DTV conversion issues, their impact on the industry and consumer and revenue opportunities for installers.

Memphis, Tennessee (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 27, 2021 -- In addressing retailers, manufacturers, installers, technicians and satellite industry executives at the opening breakfast at Satellite Expo 2005, Bob Howell, Director, Distribution Systems/Off-Air Antenna Business Group for the Winegard Company, in delivering the Keynote speech, commented on the new draft legislation of the Digital Television Transition Act of 2005, due out at the end of this month. Howell said "while the later date may affect the consumer's sense of urgency, possibly effecting sales levels for manufacturers and retailers of set top boxes and digital TV’s in the short term, I think the extra time will ultimately have a positive result. It gives everyone more time to get their plans straight and it gives us more time to educate everyone about DTV and HDTV, which, in my opinion, will ultimately accelerate interest and sales."

Pointing out that there was a lot of money at stake for everyone, he also particularly emphasized the need for educating satellite installers and the ever-changing sales force in electronic retailers on the DTV conversion, saying "they need to know what equipment is needed, as well understand the local digital plan for their viewing area, so they can properly educate customers on what their expectations should be."

The truly huge impact the conversion to DTV will eventually have on the TV consumer, how they receive TV programming and the continued and increased need for education, was one of the main themes of his speech. In it, Howell said "the key to our success with the transition to DTV, for all of us, is education. Anything and everything we can do to educate everyone within the industry and particularly the consumer is worth the investment. The more educated the consumer becomes in order to make the right choices and decisions about receiving a digital signal, the quicker consumers will adopt the digital TV transition and the more sales will be generated."

Commenting on the advent of local-to-local satellite service to the consumer and its impact the number of homes with Off-Air antennas, Howell said "there will always be a market for Off-Air antennas, because no matter how this transition unfolds, there’s still going to be 30 or 40 million TV sets out there using an Off-Air antenna. Antennas are required to receive Off-Air DTV and HDTV signals from local over-the-air broadcasters. And the right HDTV antenna is no longer an accessory, it is a necessity. Getting the best Off-Air HD picture starts with the best antenna for the job."

Off-Air reception of local DTV/HDTV broadcasts is not only a natural supplement to satellite reception, particularly HDTV, it presents additional revenue opportunities to satellite installers, which is why Howell recommended satellite installer professionals keep up-to-speed on Off-Air antenna installation. "With the emergence of this free over-the-air digital broadcast TV," Howell said, "satellite installers can seize this opportunity to exceed their customer’s expectations and to increase the dollars in their pockets at the same time."

"The needs of the consumer must be paramount to everyone," Howell said, "We can't forget that the consumer drives the sales that keep us all in business and growing. And it's the consumer that will dictate the ultimate success level of this conversion and its benefits to us. I believe that if we all keep in mind what’s best for the consumer, it will be a win win for everybody. Once TV consumers get the HD bug, they're going to want all the HDTV they can get."

Installers were urged to contact their local broadcast stations in their viewing area and ask them for their digital plan and to log on to the CEA’s antennaweb.org’s antenna locator site. He also suggested they access CheckHD.com as another site providing digital/HDTV-programming information for local viewing areas. He said "by doing so, installers can access the knowledge base to properly explain to the customer what's going on in their area relative to digital broadcast stations and what they can deliver and what antenna to sell them, providing the customer with a realistic expectation for their HDTV experience." He further urged his audience to attend as many of the 34 different educational forums and training classes as they could in furtherance of their education.

At the end of the show, Howell said, "I was pleased with the attendance and to see SkyRETAILER's special edition on Satellite Expo 2005 pronounce its opening day 'a Hit' and particularly echoing my comments about education being the key to making the conversion a success.

US Law Enforcement Improves SpeechGuard™ PD-4

Ectaco, Inc. responds to feedback from the law enforcement community and customizes their multilingual translation device accordingly. Speech recognition is improved significantly and more languages and dialects are available for ethnically diverse communities.

(PRWEB) June 27, 2021 -- Ectaco, Inc., the world leader in the development of electronic dictionaries, translators and linguistic software, has introduced a quicker and more robust SpeechGuard™ PD-4. Law enforcement personnel speak into the unit resulting in phrases being instantly repeated in the language of their choice in a clear and audible tone. Linguists, programmers, designers and engineers collaborate to produce the most cost effective and high quality translation units on the market.

Two significant enhancements have been made as a result of the law enforcement community’s concerns. The speech recognition engine of SpeechGuard™ is now faster so users can immediately begin speaking into the device without delay. Target language output transpires in less than half a second after a phrase is spoken in English. Default languages have been expanded by two to include Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Chinese and Polish. PD-4 owners maintain the convenience of being able to customize languages and content at their discretion.

“If communication fails or is compromised, the agency is severely impaired in understanding the needs of the people and providing optimum services,” states Ectaco CEO David Lubinitsky. “Translation services by individuals are cost-prohibitive and sometimes unavailable, plus establishing competency is critical to achieving desired outcomes. Our units are accessible, adaptable, and programmed by a team of highly-skilled professionals. There are more than 50 languages agencies can choose from.”

“Communication is critical to documenting and delivering important information, such as explanation of a suspect’s Miranda rights,” notes Marketing VP Andrew Ageev. “Being able to verbally exchange information improves the quality of law enforcement provided to people of diverse cultures and linguistic backgrounds.”

Use of the unit serves as a powerful public relations tool, with people in ethnically diverse communities realizing their needs are being addressed. A non-English speaking person often feels intimidated in an unfamiliar environment where they only partially understand the intentions of police. The resulting situation can be frustrating for both the agency and the individual.

“Our customers always know their needs before we do,” adds Mr. Ageev, “and that’s why we have made significant changes with SpeechGuard™. We will continuously work with police departments to develop the PD-4 to keep up with the constant changes they undergo.”

Institute for Advanced Learning and Research Facility Receives International Recognition for Audio/Visual Design and Systems Integration

The Institute for Advanced Learning and Research was recently recognized by the International Communications Industries Association (ICIA) for the audio/visual capabilities within its facility.

(PRWEB) June 26, 2021 -- The Institute for Advanced Learning and Research was recently recognized by the International Communications Industries Association (ICIA) for the audio/visual capabilities within its facility. Technical Innovation, an AV integration firm, along with architecture, engineering and planning firm Dewberry, was selected for their work with IALR as a winner in the third-annual ARCHI-TECH AV Awards 2005. Winners were recognized at the International Communications Industries Association (ICIA) AV Communications Excellence Awards Banquet on June 7, 2021 at the Las Vegas Hilton.

Technical Innovation and Dewberry were honored at InfoComm ’05, the annual conference of the ICIA. Technical Innovation and Dewberry won in the $2 million and above category for AV design and systems integration for their work on the IALR facility located in Danville. The competition is sponsored by the ICIA and ARCHI-TECH Magazine and honors outstanding examples of creative and effective integration of technology into otherwise traditional construction projects.

The IALR is helping to transform the economy of Southside Virginia through strategic research programs and by bringing technology and talent to the region. Dewberry and Technical Innovation worked jointly to establish the IALR facility as one of the finest presentation and communications environments in the country. From an educational, governmental, institutional, and corporate standpoint, the AV systems scored high marks both economically and aesthetically.

Maurice Ferrell, IALR’s Director of Advanced Networking and Technology, says that the technology within the facility delivers a cutting-edge ambiance that is noticeable throughout the building. “From a technology standpoint, the IALR facility is comparable to any of the most advanced facilities in the United States,” he said. “The recent ARCHI-TECH Award is a great honor for IALR, Technical Innovation, and Dewberry. This recognition substantiates the IALR’s mission of bringing advanced technology to Southside Virginia.”

Dewberry, a national professional services firm with offices in 14 states, is responsible for the architecture design of the IALR facility. According to Larry Hasson, Project Manager out of Dewberry’s Danville office, designing a building that would serve as a symbol for inspiration and change was paramount for this project. “Dewberry’s collaboration with Technical Innovation accomplished the design goal of both providing a high-tech systems and image that reflects the building’s purpose of economic transformation,” Hasson said.

“The IALR had a clear vision as to what needed to be accomplished at this facility,” notes Gary Benzine, the director of the Raleigh, NC office for Technical Innovation. “Receiving industry-wide recognition for this effort is truly an honor.”

For such a project, the technology had to be dramatic and creative. The first impression is provided by a 3 by 3 hanging plasma screen array (suspended from the ceiling) that greets visitors in the 40-foot high atrium lobby. In addition to the "Great Hall" -- a center with seating for 600 used for corporate and government functions -- the facility also includes three fully integrated conference rooms and a multi-use executive boardroom. An innovative creation, the 45-foot long boardroom (with a 32-foot custom table, side-by-side 61-inch plasma displays, six auxiliary plasma displays, and sixteen separate computer/input links) has been designed to easily divide into two distinct rooms. The finishing element of the project was a group of nine state-of-the-art education classrooms.

“While the blueprints were still on the table during the initial design stages of the facility, Virginia Tech provided its considerable expertise to the team to help plan a high functioning technology building,” said Nancy Franklin, Senior Director of Technology and Programs for IALR. “One of the reasons that the IALR facility has been so widely applauded in the international AV community is that AV functionality was taken into account in the formative stages of the design process. Technical Innovation and Dewberry, along with Virginia Tech, the City of Danville and Pittsylvania County, worked as a team to make the high-tech IALR facility in Southside Virginia a reality and they deserve this great recognition from the ICIA.”

Ingram Micro, Intechra Team up to Eliminate Asset-Recovery Hassles for Resellers; VARs Get Easy Access to Full Suite of Asset Recovery Services

Intechra, LLC, a pioneer and leader in the asset recovery industry, today announced that it has teamed up with Ingram Micro, Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world’s largest technology distributor, to offer value-added resellers (VARs) in the United States a full spectrum of asset recovery services.

Carrollton, TX (PRWEB) June 23, 2021 -- Intechra, LLC, a pioneer and leader in the asset recovery industry, today announced that it has teamed up with Ingram Micro, Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world’s largest technology distributor, to offer value-added resellers (VARs) in the United States a full spectrum of asset recovery services. These services include:
• Refurbishment of remarketable electronic assets
• Remarketing of electronic assets, including investment recovery for the original owners
• Certified data destruction, including indemnification
• Recycling for End-of-Life electronic equipment, including environmental liability indemnification.
• Complete end-to-end logistics services

“Intechra enables Ingram Micro’s customers to extend end-user relationships by providing several very valuable services around the disposal of old equipment,” said Justin Crotty, vice president, channel marketing, Ingram Micro North America. “VARs can engage their customers in refresh discussions with a host of valuable asset-disposition services to eliminate the traditional hassles of pulling out older infrastructure and certifying data destruction. Additionally, the older equipment that is being refreshed may have some residual market value that the VAR can apply toward the purchase of new equipment through Ingram Micro. This better arms VARs to propose new technologies and solutions, offer full removal and disposal capabilities, and deliver advantageous financial benefits to their customers."

As laws tighten that govern the protection of customer data and the end-of-life disposal of electronics, technology users are beginning to realize that, in addition to a technology refresh strategy, they must also have an asset disposition strategy. This agreement between Intechra and Ingram Micro helps solution providers seamlessly fill that need for their customers.

Ingram Micro and Intechra will offer the asset recovery and disposition service through Ingram Micro’s new Ingram Micro Outlet Program at www.ingrammicro.com/outlet.

Leading Weatherproof Loudspeaker Company Introduces Industry’s most Durable Dual Voice Coil Solution

The new Terra “Wide-Fi™” Loudspeakers are designed for stereo sound in one single housing. These completely waterproof speakers use innovative technologies to deliver the sound quality you expect of a fine indoor speaker... outdoors. But unlike most of us, it could care less about the weather. The world is shrinking around us. Don’t let that interfere with your quality of sound. Get the sound you want in the space you have

(PRWEB) June 23, 2021 -- Terra introduces the “Wide-Fi™” Custom Application Series Loudspeakers. The CA Series WF10 is a dual voice coil speaker in a small in-wall / ceiling frame. The Wide-Fi™ weatherproof loudspeaker is ideal because it’s one small single speaker that performs in stereo. Great for those small locations where one speaker would be ideal, without sacrificing stereo sound. It features a 5-1?4" ACAD™ (aluminum cone)/ MFCS™(spider-less) dual voice coil woofer with coaxial tweeters, paintable frame & grille and integral clamping tabs with captive screws, meaning no loose hardware. Great for saunas and high humidity settings like bathrooms, swimming pools or in marine environments. The design concept was to use the same size and shape of the existing CA.10 speaker so an installer could mix and match between the two models and keep the same look, with all the added function. These completely waterproof speakers use innovative technologies to combine the dynamics of traditional box speakers with the aesthetic advantages and placement flexibility of one single in-wall speaker, great for use indoors or out. Outstanding performer in wet or humid conditions.

First Book on How to Make Money Investing in Nanotechnology Released

The first book on how to make money investing in nanotechnology and other so-called “small technologies,” titled "Nanotech Fortunes," has been released by The Nanotech Company.

(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 22, 2021 -- The Nanotech Company is pleased to release the first book on how to make money investing in nanotechnology and other so-called “small technologies,” titled "Nanotech Fortunes."

Authored by the company’s founder and managing director Darrell Brookstein, a 32-year career investment professional, author-personalized first-editions of the 256 page hardcover book are only available at the company’s website, www.nanotechnology.com, for a discounted $22.95 (retail $27.95). Best current price for the new book is at www.atlasbooks.com where it appears for $18.45.

Mr. Brookstein is a Duke University graduate who went on to lead investment banking, investment advisory, private equity, venture capital and hedge fund firms. Specializing in speculative, “boom/bust” industries, he teamed with noted bio-nanoscientist, Erkki Ruoslahti, MD, PhD, in 2001, and focused his investment acumen on this misunderstood field.

"Nanotech Fortunes", which informs readers how to make money and avoid losing it in investing in nanotechnology, has already received acclaim in nanotechnology circles. From non-scientist, investor readers:

“This is the first book I have found that tailors to the financial professional as well as a novice like me.” – JH

“If you’ve not read it yet, you’re already behind the nanocurve.” – CJ

“Read this book before you make the mistakes I did.” – JP

Because of Mr. Brookstein’s presentation of other nano-professionals’ and nanoscientists’ input, and the useful appendix, the book is called “The Source” for executives, scientists and investors.

Now, high-tech investors can learn the secrets of investing in the dynamic areas of nanotechnology and other "small technologies" without being intimidated by scientific jargon or hampered by irrelevant information.

Mr. Brookstein said, “I wrote this book for the readers of investment newsletters and books; they are who will enable the profit-exploding commercialization of technologies developed by scientists and engineers. Nanotechnology will drive industries and will touch everyone over decades. Anyone interested in the future of investing should read "Nanotech Fortunes.”

The Nanotech Company assists emerging small tech companies to achieve their corporate development goals and professional investors in investing in “small tech” by accessing its significant scientific, corporate development, and financial advisory resources. The company publishes a free e-digest of international “small technology” news, “The Best of the NanoWeek”.

A New Era for Using Accurate Location in the World

CommunicAsia 2005 in Singapore - NAC Geographic Products Inc. has announced that the GPS and NAC enhanced wireless location based services application - Locamagic (http://Locamagic.biz) has been released to Telus Mobility of Canada. This application is designed for all GPS cellphones to provide address management, locating, navigating, local business searching, cellphone tracking and friends' location monitoring services for more than 30 countries in North America, Europe, South America and Asia-Pacific region (the geographic data are provided by Microsoft MapPoint Web Service).

(PRWEB) June 21, 2021 -- CommunicAsia 2005, Singapore. NAC Geographic Products Inc. has announced that the GPS and NAC enhanced wireless location based services application – Locamagic (http://Locamagic.biz) has been released to Telus Mobility of Canada. This application is designed for all GPS cellphones to provide address management, locating, navigating, local business searching, cellphone tracking and friends’ location monitoring services for more than 30 countries in North America, Europe, South America and Asia-Pacific region (the geographic data are provided by Microsoft MapPoint Web Service).

Using the GPS capability of the cellphone, the locating service of Locamagic provides the Universal Address (Natural Area Code) for every spot on the earth surface so that consumers can get accurate time and accurate location anywhere any time in the world. The Universal Address is a highly efficient representation of an accurate location (see http://www.nacgeo.com/nacsite/) with eight characters to the resolution of 30 meters and ten characters to the resolution of 1 meter, while longitude/latitude coordinates require more than 15 and 19 characters respectively. GPS technology makes accurate locations available everywhere, and the Universal Address makes accurate locations consumer-friendly: easy to remember, communicate, record, input and display. Just like the introduction of mechanical watches that started an era for using accurate time, the launch of Locamagic is to start a new era for using accurate locations in the world.

“With Locamagic running on their GPS cellphone, people will no longer need to look around for landmarks in order to answer the question: Where are you?” said Dr. Xinhang Shen, president of NAC Geographic Products Inc. “This is because they can directly read the Universal Address of their location anywhere in the world from Locamagic. It is the same as time that people can directly read from their watch without the need to check the position of the sun. The Universal Address System generates highly efficient, language independent, systematic and complete digital addresses for all locations in the world to meet the needs from the globalization and digitization.”

With Locamagic, consumers can use the Universal Addresses to represent all the fixed locations in their daily activities: houses, buildings, gates, doors, stores, malls, restaurants, movie theaters, travel attractions, gas stations, bus stops, railway stations, docks, airports, street intersections, street lights, fire hydrants, sewage exits, electric wire poles, mines, wells, etc. They can also use the Universal Addresses to represent temporary locations such as: accidents, crimes, emergency sites, parking positions, dating/appointment places, camping sites, fishing spots, BBQ tables, park benches, archeological discoveries, and other temporary locations in the world.

Locamagic allows you to get Universal Addresses from street addresses, and also get nearby street addresses from Universal Addresses. Therefore, you will not get stuck if you don’t know the Universal Address or the street address. You can use all kind of addresses (GPS location, Universal Addresses, street addresses, street intersections, postcodes/ZIP, points of interest and cities/towns) to specify locations and areas for locating, navigating and local business searching supported by detail location information, street maps, turn-by-turn driving directions, route maps, real-time navigating instructions, maps and lists of nearby businesses in all categories that a traveler needs. Using Universal Addresses instead of a street address on Locamagic can reduce 80% of key input, avoid difficulties in inputting foreign characters, eliminate errors from address databases, and extend the services to all locations no matter whether there are street addresses or not. It will also significantly reduce the cost and response time on Locamagic.

With your permission, the tracking service of Locamagic can show your current and past locations in real time on an interactive map on a desktop web browser that you friends and family can access anywhere in the world. This will be especially useful to track a child, senior, patient, taxi, truck, employee, animal, car, boat, airplane, skier, hiker, biker, or other moving object.

Its friends’ monitoring service gives you even more power in monitoring multiple moving objects with accurate maps and lists on both your cellphone and desktop browsers so that you, your friends and your family can see the locations of all the monitoring objects: a group of people in driving, skiing, biking, hiking, piloting, boating, etc. It can also be used as a vehicle tracking service for tracking taxis, trucks, ships, airplanes, etc.

Jennic Validates its Serial RapidIO Intellectual Property in Silicon

Jennic has successfully demonstrated its Serial RapidIO IP operating in conjunction with solutions from other RapidIO vendors.

Sheffield, UK (PRWEB) June 20, 2021 -- Jennic, a leading supplier of system-level intellectual property (IP) cores and semiconductor solutions for the communications market, has successfully demonstrated its Serial RapidIO IP operating in conjunction with solutions from other RapidIO vendors.

Jennic has implemented the IP core as a Serial RapidIO to PCI bridge chip which has been instantiated in both an NEC Electronics ISSP™ structured ASIC and an Altera Stratix-GX FPGA. Tests undertaken included passing RapidIO traffic between Jennic's IP core and a Freescale PowerQUICC III processor, via a Serial RapidIO switch fabric composed of Tundra Semiconductor's Tsi568A™ Serial RapidIO switch devices and under the control of Fabric Embedded Tools RapidFET™ software. This successfully demonstrates the ability of several RapidIO devices to communicate at the different layers of the RapidIO standard.

In order to participate in this testing, Jennic developed a fully integrated Serial RapidIO evaluation platform consisting of a PCI compliant Hardware Inter-operability Platform (HIP) and a comprehensive software package. This provided a variety of RapidIO traffic generation and diagnostic capabilities including the ability to compare received data against transmitted data and to control a number of RapidIO parameters.

“The recently performed successful testing with Jennic's IP and our Tsi568A Serial RapidIO switch will enable customers to design their RapidIO-based systems with greater confidence,” said Tom Wilson, director of product management at Tundra Semiconductor. “The availability of silicon proven IP is an important addition to the RapidIO ecosystem and provides customers with an environment to prototype their designs with lower risk and cost.”
Frank Newcombe, business development manager for wireline IP at Jennic added, “By collaborating with the main players in the RapidIO market space, and validating our IP against their standard products, we ensure that our customers’ devices will function correctly when used in their intended application."

By offering its Serial RapidIO IP in a range of technologies, including FPGA, structured ASIC and cell-based ASIC, Jennic enables its customers to prototype their systems in a flexible and low cost environment before moving to production volumes.

Jennic’s intellectual property portfolio includes physical layer framers and bus bridges for wide and metro area networks, access network co-processors, line-card connectivity solutions and cellular, low power wireless and data mixed-signal systems. The company’s system expertise, advanced IP portfolio and skills in digital, software, mixed-signal and SoC design combine to deliver performance, cost and time-to-market advantages to its system OEM and semiconductor customers.

Hundreds of Fireflies Swarm Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas

New generation of firefly lights are so realistic they even fool Mother Nature's real Fireflies and they've just been installed at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. These patent pending electronic 'fireflies' are used in theme parks, science museums, on-stage, in movies, and are now available for homeowners to bring 'fireflies' into their backyards.

(PRWEB) June 17, 2021 -- Planning on visiting Las Vegas in the next few months? Be sure to stop by the Bellagio Hotel in the evening to witness hundreds of fireflies come to life in the Conservatory, just off the Bellagio Hotel lobby.

"Are these fireflies real?" asked one guest while gazing with amazement at the flashing, flickering, and fading little fireflies.

Actually, they're Firefly Magic Firefly Lights (www.FireflyMagic.com) selected by Mr. Troy Eckerman, head of Chroma Designs, Inc. to enhance a forty-foot long, sixteen-foot high arched arbor covered with curly willow foliage, and the centerpiece of the most recent Bellagio Conservatory display.

"Firefly Magic electronic 'fireflies', with their unique patent pending microprocessor technology, were selected because they recreate the most realistic 'look and feel' of Mother Nature's real fireflies than any other product in the world."

At night, with the 'fireflies' flashing, the scene is reminiscent of a back woods bayou deep in the South. Sigma Two Industries created twenty-one custom High-Flash-Rate Firefly Magic Firefly Lights units which were installed along the top of the arched arbor. Each of the 300 individual 'firefly' wires, along with an independently controlled 'firefly' at the end of each one, stream down and through the arbor foliage.

Visitors to the display, which will remain in place through September, were mesmerized by the hundreds of tiny 'fireflies' flashing, flickering, and fading overhead. But Firefly Magic electronic Firefly Lights are not new to being showcased in public displays. They're also being used in theme parks, restaurants, on-stage, in movies, and at museums like the Natural Science Center of Greensboro in their popular 'Bug Discovery' exhibit.

Just how realistic are Firefly Magic Firefly Lights? Ask Dr. Sara Lewis, Associate Professor of Biology at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, a center for firefly research.

Dr. Lewis and her researchers are using Firefly Magic Firefly Lights in the field to 'lure-in' real fireflies for study. By using the unique patent pending microprocessor technology in Firefly Magic Firefly Lights, the specialized flash pattern of any of 2000 varieties of fireflies can be accurately programmed into these amazing electronic 'fireflies'.

However, the great majority of the Firefly Magic Firefly Lights customers are homeowners who want to bring 'fireflies' into their own backyards.

Stephen Taylor, President of Sigma Two Industries, read an e-mail from a customer in Minnesota who said, "I border a bog area so I mounted the solar "lamp" on a tall pole, so it would receive sunlight as the cattails grow. I then strung the lights ('fireflies') and clipped them to the growing cattails so they could keep moving up and not be blocked by new growth. Well, last night, I had a very pleasant surprise. As I sat on the deck, watching the lights in the bog, I was amazed by the numbers. As it turned out, the Firefly lights had attracted many real fireflies. It was the most amazing sight. We have always had fireflies, but never in these numbers. Just wanted to pass this on. Thanks for making such an innovative and quality product."

About Firefly Magic Firefly Lights:
In 1996, Sigma Two Industries began development on a low voltage lighting product that would accurately replicate the flashing, flickering, fading, color, and size of real fireflies. Since then, the product line has evolved with patent pending transformer powered, battery powered, and solar powered electronic fireflies controlled by high technology microchips.

About Sigma Two Industries:
Founded in 1979, Sigma Two Industries has specialized in the design, manufacture, and installation of low voltage lighting and communication systems for both commercial and residential locations. Sigma Two is also a licensed California contractor (493574) specializing in low voltage systems.

Podcasting Users to Approach 60 Million U.S. Consumers by 2010

The Diffusion Group predicts marked growth for time-shifted digital audio programming.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 16, 2021 -- According to new forecasts from The Diffusion Group, a leading consumer technology research consultancy, demand for time-shifted digital audio files or "podcasts" is expected to grow from less than 15% of portable digital music player owners in 2004 to 75% by 2010. TDG's new report, "Podcasting: Fact, Fiction and Opportunity," suggests that between 2004 and 2010, the use of podcasting among U.S. consumers will enjoy a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 101%.

"Today the term 'podcast' refers to almost any online mobile content distribution service," said Marc Freedman, contributing analyst with The Diffusion Group. "It has taken on very general precepts, thus indicative of its status as a service category as opposed to a branded activity."

While the iPod explosion created demand for both portable digital music players and inexpensive, downloadable content, Freedman contends that it wasn't until consumers became aware of personal video recording and the virtues of time-shifting (that is, downloading or saving to consumer media content when most convenient to consumers) that podcasting became a distinct activity.

"Consumers were already accustomed to downloading music for playback on portable devices – this is a well-engrained activity that precedes online digital music," said Freedman. "However, the downloading of online 'audio blogs' for portable on-demand consumption is certainly new. Yes, the roots of podcasting lie in non-commercial amateur blogging, but podcasting's non-commercial status is changing as more businesses begin to find creative ways to use this new delivery medium to push audio content."

Freedman's claims have indeed been validated by a host of recent commercial podcasting activity. ABC and NBC (along with MSNBC and CNBC) are using podcasting to offer recorded newscasts via online downloads. National Public Radio, Infinity Broadcasting, and even Clear Channel Radio have teed up a number of popular radio programs for podcasting. Even Business Week created a special audio blog to accompany its recent analysis of the podcasting phenomenon.

TDG's latest report, "Podcasting: Fact, Fiction and Opportunity," examines the emergence of podcasting, its non-commercial lineage, and its commercial prospects. Additionally, the report offers TDG's reflections and recommendation on how the podcasting will impact the production, promotion, and consumption of audio programming.

Slide4less Predicts Summer Leap in Powerboard Market - Exkate Raptor Line Breaks Price Barrier at Under $500

The professional staff of Slide4less, LLC (www.slide4less.com and www.electriclongboards.com) has more collective knowledge of electric skateboards than anyone else in the world.

(PRWEB) June 15, 2021 -- This knowledge is a testament to a decade spent testing and selling powerboards of all shapes, sizes and functionality, as well as forging relationships with industry manufacturers, creating prototype boards and – most importantly – always keeping an open mind about whatever electric toy comes down the pipe, even if it looks or feels quite odd. A willingness to try something ‘different’ has made Slide4less the powerboard-sales leader in this budding industry.

As summer draws closer, partners in the California-based company predict a huge spike in sales because a new line of functional – yet inexpensive – powerboards is now in stock.

People who find themselves attracted to powerboards, such as the new, affordable Raptor 3.0 and 4.0 from Exkate, are willing to take a chance on something different. After all, it is a risk to hop on an electric skateboard, take a wireless remote control in your palm, and zoom across the pavement at speeds of 15 miles per hour! It is certainly not akin to buying a bicycle or even a standard skateboard.

“The Raptor line is an exciting development in powerboards – we even go so far as to call it a revolution – because up to recently, powerboards with this kind of performance, acceleration, regenerative braking and wireless remote were selling for around $999 as Exkate’s X-24,” said Darren Romar, a partner in Slide4less, LLC and life-long board skater/powerboard enthusiast. “The Raptor 4.0 sells for $499 and it is essentially the same board as the X-24. It is a 40-inch longboard with wireless remote control, a 400-watt motor, and a cruising range of 10 miles on a single charge.

“The revolution isn’t so much technological, but in cutting the price in half,” Romar added. “It could double the market, especially when these new boards are introduced so close to summer, when people are looking to try the latest outdoor toys.”

These new boards are also more portable. The Raptor 3.0 weighs only 28 pounds, making it easy to carry around. The Raptors are small enough to fit into a locker.

The first shipment of Exkate Raptors came to Slide4less’s Oakland shop at 212 International Blvd. in March. Since then, the boards have proven their value as advances by Exkate and fine-tuning by the Slide4less team improved these initial ‘prototypes’ and moved them to the category of ‘finished product.’

Slide4less partners Darren Romar and Steve Steinberg got first crack at that testing, zipping down alleys and around parking lots in downtown Oakland as they took the first Raptor prototypes for some serious ‘real-world’ action.

“Some of the first boards delivered from China didn’t work so well. There were some early problems with the electronics,” Steinberg noted. “We recommended some changes and they were able to get some of the issues addressed and fixed. That was more than two months ago, and the new boards we have in stock are all working great.

“We always offer a 30-day, money-back guarantee through Slide4less if anyone isn’t satisfied,” Steinberg added. “That’s one of the many reasons to buy from us.”

“We also leverage our knowledge of the market to help customers pick out the right model with the features, performance, and price they are looking for, whether the board it is made by Exkate, E-glide or another company,” Romar said. “We do customizations at the customer’s request, so we offer a line of modified, high-performance boards for racers and other specialty buyers.”

The standard Exkate Raptor 4.0 ($499) and 3.0 ($399) are available now through www.electriclongboards.com or by calling (510) 832-2824. Consumers can also visit the showroom and take a free powerboard test ride at 212 International Blvd., (rear warehouse, off Second Avenue) in Oakland.

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.

New Generation of Highly Conductive Inks Making RFID Tags Better, Smaller

Creative Materials promotes its Product #112-15 for printing RFID antennae.

Tyngsboro, MA (PRWEB) June 14, 2021 -- The application team at Creative Materials Inc. a worldwide leader in inks, coatings and adhesives, has developed a highly conductive ink for printing RFID antennae. Passive RFID tags have antennae that can absorb radio waves from an interrogator device. The tags use the received radio energy to power an electrical circuit that generates a unique identifier, and sends a reply. The interrogator receives the reply, allowing it to know the unique identification of the RFID tag. One of the challenges in designing RFID tags is the need to print antennae and circuits that are small, durable, and not too expensive.

Creative Materials product 112-15 is an ink that consistently provides exceptional conductivity, allowing engineers to print both narrower and longer circuit trace lines, without compromising quality. Creative Materials' 112-15, supplied ready for screen-printing, features excellent adhesion to both flexible and rigid substrates, and performs well under low temperature assembly conditions.

“I recommend 112-15 in response to inquiries about highly conductive RFID inks,” said Nancy Brown, technical services specialist at Creative Materials. “This product combines several features important in producing good circuitry—conductivity, printability and consistency. The feedback from our customers who are printing for RFID applications is always very positive.”

RFID tags are used in supply chain management, vehicle tracking, and security applications. Several large organizations, including Wal-Mart and the Department of Defense, have mandated that suppliers begin tagging shipments, pallets and boxes with RFID chips. Currently the chips can cost $1.00 or more. As volumes increase and technology improves, industry analysts expect RFID tag prices to fall, making them economical for a much wider set of applications.

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.

World’s First Multi-Standard, Multi-Band Mobile Digital TV Chip Set to be Developed by Frontier Silicon

Device is the first combined state-of-the-art tuner and baseband system-on-chip designed for worldwide use supporting both DMB and DVB-H standards.

Singapore, (PRWEB) June 14, 2021 -- Frontier Silicon, the leading fabless manufacturer of semiconductors for mobile digital television (MDTV) and DAB digital radio products – has announced today that it is developing Kino 3, a new multi-standard and multi-band MDTV chip set supporting both the Korean and European digital multimedia broadcast (DMB) as well as the DVB-H standard for mobile TV reception. This will be world’s first device to combine a silicon tuner with broad tuning range and a baseband processor utilizing software defined radio techniques to address multiple MDTV reception standards – and Kino 3 will compete in terms of cost, size and power consumption with devices that just support a single standard.

Speaking at this week’s Broadcast Asia Conference in Singapore, Anthony Sethill, CEO of Frontier Silicon, said, “We strongly believe that regulatory, spectrum allocation and installed infrastructure issues could considerably slow down the deployment of MDTV worldwide. With our experience in developing pioneering semiconductor solutions for digital broadcasting, we recognized this as a company early on and deployed resources to develop multi-standard ICs. Our aim is therefore to remove this barrier by quickly introducing a solution, and we are on course to introduce our Kino 3 solution in 2006.”

DMB is an extension of the Eureka 147 specification commonly known as DAB and used for digital radio broadcasts in much of Europe. DVB-H has been developed as an extension to the existing DVB-T standard which is widely used across Europe for digital TV broadcasts. Both DMB and DVB-H have been developed to provide the robust and high bandwidth data channels required to enable the reliable reception of digital video on handheld devices.

Commercial MDTV services based on DMB are expected to roll out in Korea during 2005 and in the UK and Germany in 2006. Commercial services based on DVB-H will go live in USA during 2006 and parts of Europe will also adopt this standard during 2006 and 2007.

Sethill adds, “With our innovative technology and business models we have already had a big impact on the audio broadcast market with over 70% of all DAB radios using our products. We are now investing heavily in our multi-standard development to ensure that we have a similar impact on the MDTV market.”

Details of Frontier Silicon’s Kino 3 chip set will be announced in 2006. In outline, it comprises a state-of-the-art multi-standard baseband demodulator/decoder and multi-band (Band II, III, IV, V and L-band) RF tuner IC, and incorporates integrated microcontroller and memory. The extremely low power chip set is expected to consume less than 50mW in DVB-H channel mode.

About Frontier Silicon:
Frontier Silicon is an award-winning company at the forefront of the digital multimedia revolution with a range of semiconductor solutions for mobile digital television, digital TV and digital radio.

The company develops and delivers both the broadcast signal receiver modules and digital processing circuits as individual chips and complete system modules to leading consumer electronics and mobile phone brands.

As a fabless semiconductor business, Frontier Silicon's core products include complete DAB modules, DVB-T solutions, DMB (digital multimedia broadcasting) solutions, and the underlying system-on-chip (SoC) devices and receiver chips.

Key customers for the company's products include consumer electronic, automotive entertainment and PDA/mobile phone manufacturers such as Bang & Olufsen, Cambridge Audio, Goodmans, Grundig, Hitachi, Ministry of Sound, Philips, PURE Digital, Roberts Radio, Samsung, Sharp, Sony and TEAC.

Power Surge Season is on Us - Two Fold

Power Surges coming into your home can destroy your hi-tech equipment.. Power surges within the home is also a problem, often over looked.

Ashland, KY (PRWEB) June 13, 2021 -- Weather predictions for the next three months sound familiar. Brown outs and black outs plagued the country last summer, as did sever weather with lightning storms.

As our homes become more hi-tech, be aware of the havoc those conditions can play with your entertainment and computer equipment. These surges may come from your electric supplier as a voltage spike, or from a lightning strike. A lightning strike can come in thru your TV access or telephone line as well as your AC power.

These power surges are voltage transients, momentary voltage increases significantly above the standard 120 volts found in U.S. households and businesses. Some of these surges only occur for a fraction of a second and are hardly noticeable, but have enough energy to seriously damage electronic equipment. Small surges can also be generated within your home by air conditioners, refrigerators, and motor driven appliances.

A surge protector for the whole house, installed at the entrance box, will protect your homes AC power. To protect your TV supply and phone line, install a surge protector at the point where it enters your home. Now, a three protocol whole house surge protector can protect your power, your TV line and your phone line in one box.

Heightron Systems is a cutting edge internet company selling only surge suppressors and specializing in whole-house protection.

Aries Electronics has Introduced a Test and Burn-in Socket that Accommodates Device Packages from 41 mm2 up to 55 mm2 in Applications up to 1 GHz

Aries Electronics, an international manufacturer of standard, programmed and custom interconnection products, has introduced a test and burn-in socket that accommodates device packages from 41 mm2 up to 55 mm2 in applications up to 1 GHz.

Frenchtown, NJ (PRWEB) June 12, 2021 -- Aries Electronics, an international manufacturer of standard, programmed and custom interconnection products, has introduced a test and burn-in socket that accommodates device packages from 41 mm2 up to 55 mm2 in applications up to 1 GHz. The new size, which features a standard molded socket format, is ideal for the test and burn-in of IC devices such as SRAM, DRAM, DSP and Flash, as well as packages including CSP, MicroBGA, LCC, LGA, QFP, QFN and MLF. The socket can accommodate lead pitches from 0.45 mm to 2.54 mm.

A spring-loaded, cam-actuated pressure pad applies force against the device after the socket lid has been closed and latched and the cam is in position. Reversing the cam removes the force prior to unlatching the spring-loaded lid.

The socket features easy mounting and removal from the burn-in board (BIB) via solderless pressure-mount compression spring probes accurately located by two molded plastic alignment pins and secured with four stainless steel screws.

The signal path of the new socket during test is only 1.92 mm (.077”). At pitches above 0.80 mm using a large probe, 1 dB of bandwidth at 1 GHz can be achieved. Operating temperature of the socket ranges from -55°C to +150°C (-67°F to +302°F), and estimated contact life is 500,000 cycles. The socket’s molded components are
UL94V-0 PEEK and/or Ultem.

Compression spring probes are heat-treated beryllium copper alloy, plated with 30 µ” min. (.75 µm) gold per Mil-G-45204 over 50 µ” min. (1.25 µm) nickel per QQ-N-290. This gold over nickel plating on the probes leaves very small witness marks on the bottom surface of the solder balls. The insertion force of spring probe contacts is 9 g to 12 g per contact for 0.50 mm to 0.75 mm pitches, and 17 g to 20 g per contact for 0.80 mm pitches and larger. All hardware is stainless steel.

As with all Aries sockets, the new burn-in and test socket is available in custom materials, platings, sizes and configurations to suit specific customer applications.

Pricing for a 50-lead socket starts at $68.25 per unit in quantities of 10. Delivery is four weeks ARO.

Components Corp. Now Offers A RoHS-Compliant, Low-Profile SMT Test Points Series

Components Corp., a world leader in the design and manufacture of circuit board hardware technology, releases the 100% RoHS-compliant TP-107 Series of low-profile, surface-mount printed circuit board test points.

Denville, NJ (PRWEB) June 11, 2021 -- Announced today by Components Corp., a world leader in the design and manufacture of circuit board hardware technology, is the 100% RoHS-compliant TP-107 Series of low-profile, surface-mount printed circuit board test points. The TP-107 Series is engineered specifically for employment by fabricators of high-density SMT printed wiring boards who demand reliable, safe and durable testing both during and after manufacture, as well as the capability to easily, quickly, and accurately identify faults. The unparalleled superiority of the device’s bond to the PCB is the result of Component Corp’s unique forming process. This proprietary process, which consists of forming the flat wire design in a spiral wrap at the mounting base, effectively doubles the surface area of the mounting base to enable a more rugged connection when adhered to the solder pad. Therefore, an excess of 18 pounds of force would be required to dislodge the test point. Additionally notable is the TP-107s’ singular loop design which provides a positive and secure location for miniature spring-loaded clips, probes, and hooks.

Widely appropriate for use in today’s advanced surface mount printed circuit board applications, the test points offer a low, 0.090” (2.29 mm) profile. Their electrical specifications include a current rating of 2A, and an operating temperature of -55 degrees to +125 degrees C. The parts feature a 100% matte tin (0.0001 min.) over nickel (0.0001) finish, and are manufactured using 0.015” x 0.040” phosphor bronze, spring-tempered flat wire alloy. Designed for automatic insertion by industry-standard pick-and-place equipment and re-flow soldering, they are supplied on 12 mm wide, 4 mm pitch, conductive polycarbonate tape that meets ANSI/EIA-481 standards. The units may be ordered on either 7” reels/1,000 pieces, or 13” reels/5,000 pieces. For more detailed information visit http://componentscorp.com/details/tp107.html.

Pricing for Component Corp’s TP-107 Series of RoHS-compliant test points is $0.078 ea. in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is from stock to 4 weeks. Samples are available upon request

Dawn Nichol is founder and chief visionary of The Solopreneur Zone located in Grass Valley, CA where she frequents her local coffee shops to conduct business on her laptop. She could work from home without any personal interaction and loads of laundry to do, but the buzz of the local coffee shop, the interesting people she meets and of course, high-speed internet are the real deal breakers for Dawn.

Grass Valley, CA (PRWEB) June 10, 2021 -- By 2006, statistics forecast that wireless and laptop users will reach over 20 million in the US alone, according to a 2001 report by Cahner’s In-Stat Group, Nokia and Gartner Dataquest Stand. Dawn Nichol is not alone when she cruises down the street to her local coffee shop to do business. This is a growing trend with many reasons behind it. In smaller cities such as Grass Valley, California, high-speed internet is not always an option and job markets may also be saturated, leading residents to turn to alternatives such as opening virtual businesses.

Virtual businesses are a growing trend—in large part due to easy access to the internet. Dawn Nichol is a small business coach who works with Solo-Entrepreneurs to create profitable and sustainable businesses that work for them. She conducts business from her telephone and laptop. Clients don’t need to come to her ‘office’ nor does she need to be physically present with clients. This form of coaching is one of many recent developments in the business world being catapulted by Wi-Fi hot spots, also known as web café’s.

Small town economies all over the US have been crushed when their major sources of employment have been shut down or down-sized, but now they have an alternative. While Grass Valley’s population is only 12,000, it is a thriving, but small community with five web café’s to choose from: Cafe’ Mecca, The Bear Café, Flour Garden (2 locations), and Starbucks. Dawn and her family love living in their corner of paradise with their young and growing family. They have it all…living in and raising their children in a small community while still able to earn a double income.

More About The Solopreneur Zone
Dawn Nichol, founder and chief visionary of The Solopreneur Zone is also the creator and facilitator of “The 10,000 Solopreneurs Project”, a ground-breaking research study surveying the business practices of 10,000 solo business owners worldwide which launches June 15, 2021 via the web at www.10000solopreneurs.com.

Nanotechnology Partnerships, Connections Spur Innovation for Fluid Control Industries

Bringing together people with expertise in microtechnology, automotive application engineering, MEMS flow control research and development, and venture capital, Microstaq is on target to succeed in several flow-control industries with its microvalve.

Bellingham, WA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 9, 2021 –- Microstaq founders Steve Booth and Jeff Chance knew a lot about automotive systems and little about microtechnology when they set out eight years ago to create a new business making a better flow control valve. Having worked in business development and sales for a large automotive company, the two were in a position to improve on the manufacturing of traditional mechanical valves that run various automotive flow control systems and they knew how to sell it.

They were seeking a manufacturer for their valve when they met Bob Mehalso, an internationally recognized expert in nanotechnology and microsystems. Mehalso is a consultant in micro-electro-mechanical systems, or MEMS technology, and a man with many contacts in the micro-manufacturing industry. His innovative approaches to commercializing nanosystems have lead to products such as ink-jet print heads and fuel-injection nozzles.

Mehalso had just one word for Booth and Chance: silicon.

Why not replace the car’s bulky, seventeen-part mechanical valve with a radically smaller single silicon chip capable of controlling the same fluids?

Through Mehalso’s contacts Booth and Chance inked a commercial agreement with the inventor of a silicon microvalve technology designed for harsh environment flow control systems. Today, Microstaq’s employees include both silicon and flow control experts who are working together to bring MEMS technology to the automotive world of flow control. Microstaq’s tiny silicon chip, whose production is expected to get under way in late 2006, promises to revolutionize the fluid control industry as the transistor did in the electronics world.

The miniature silicon wafer promises to control the flow of liquids, mists and gases in air-conditioning, transmission, braking and other automotive systems operating at high pressures and high flows. Its lighter weight and smaller size, coupled with its resistive, linear flow control characteristics, have the potential to contribute to vehicle fuel economy and to reduce power consumption in every car, truck and SUV that uses it.

Booth and Chance believe their patented microtechnology has broad application potential that could result in a number of business and technical partnerships across multiple industries. For instance, the microvalve technology has great potential for the miniaturization of flow control in biomedical, refrigeration, aerospace and aeronautics. Its portability, low cost, accuracy and small fluid volume requirements also make it ideal for point-of-use chemical mixing and for active cooling of complex, heat generating electronic systems such as modern microprocessors.

The company’s silicon chip-based flow control technology leverages proven silicon wafer processing techniques to create a single-structure, ‘solid state’ valve capable of controlling a range of fluids in today’s high-pressure, high-flow rate control environments without the traditional membrane or orifice-type microvalve designs. The chip’s cost, size, weight, durability, performance and component integration capability offer strong benefits for auto manufacturers and automotive systems suppliers.

“In a demanding world marketplace, product miniaturization matters,” Booth said. “Business partnerships are also important, and Microstaq recognizes the benefits of partnering with people and organizations to efficiently develop and market this valve technology in promising business sectors.”

Microstaq’s valve technology has so much business potential that the company received a $2 million federal award in 2001 from the U.S Department of Commerce National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Advanced Technology Program to complete the development of its unique microvalve. Microstaq has also obtained several research grant awards from New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

In 2004 the company received over $2 million in venture capital funding.

About Microstaq:
Microstaq (www.microstaq.com) is a privately held company founded in 2000 to bring MEMS technology to the flow control world of automotive systems. Microstaq designs, develops and manufactures high-performance MEMS silicon valve systems capable of operating in normal to extreme flow control environments.

Co-founders Steve Booth and Jeff Chance were business development and sales managers in the automotive air-conditioning and engine cooling industry before founding the company to address flow control opportunities in the air-conditioning and refrigeration industries. Formerly known as Alumina Micro, the company moved to Bellingham in 2002.

Microstaq recognizes the benefits of business partnerships to efficiently market its valve technology and seeks partnerships that will successfully market its flow control technology into promising business sectors.

Avoid any Surgical Treatment for Chronic Back Pain Problems

Avoid Surgery for back pain ailments

(PRWEB) June 9, 2021 -- Many nationally recognized pain management centers are now suggesting spinal cord stimulators, a risky surgery, to relieve pain. Unfortunately, the pain relief is minimal and many patients still have to have a “narcotic backing” to have a normal life.

This is the frank conclusion of pain specialist, Dr. Owen Rogal, founder of The Pain Center, in Center City Philadelphia, and a leading pain specialist for over 25 years.

Spinal cord stimulators use an electrical device that send a signal to electrodes to a point near a nerve that supposedly interferes with transmission of the pain signal, he explains.

“All this for minimal relief and then a lifetime of drug use,” says Dr. Rogal who disdains drugs in his work, especially the powerful fentanyl, often prescribed as a follow-up to the spinal cord stimulator.

“Fentanyl is ten times more powerful than morphine.” he declares. Dr. Rogal calls fentanyl “instant addiction”, adding “this is just more poison for the system.”

Instead, Dr. Rogal and his medical staff use a method he discovered and introduced successfully some fifteen years ago, called “The RFS.”
The RFS is comprised of two parts; if a simple Novocain injection will decrease the pain, the RFS will remove the pain permanently, he stated.

Dr. Rogal feels the RFS is the best pain relief in the entire World.

RFID Jobs Exceed 1.3 Million by 2015

RFID Tribe released a 40 page report to provide a clear picture of where people work, how they innovate, the challenges they face and the roles they play in RFID technology.

(PRWEB) June 8, 2021 -- RFID Tribe has released a report on the RFID workforce, “The RFID Workforce: Mining the RFID Technology Gold Rush”

The 40 page report provides a clear picture of where people work, how they innovate, the challenges they face and the roles they play in RFID technology.

RFID Tribe created this in-depth report on the RFID workforce – the first report of its kind. This report describes those individuals taking advantage of an emerging technology – radio frequency identification (RFID) technology.

The RFID industry is currently undergoing rapid development and explosive changes. Market research firms predict the market for RFID products and services will reach $7 billion range by 2008. And with mandates from both major retailers and government entities, many more companies are expected to embark on the RFID technology journey. Similar to the California gold rush, many see the opportunity, join the market and stake their claim in the RFID technology landscape. Some will discover success, while others will find success elusive.

Despite the industry growth and increasing adoption of RFID technology, information regarding the RFID workforce is lacking. Data is scarce regarding the people heavily involved in RFID technology - the RFID workforce. Information about the people working with RFID and about the workforce driving the industry is just as vital as information about the technology itself.

The RFID Workforce Report contains ten year forecasts (2005-2015) sizing the RFID workforce by geographic region, by segment and by function from its current size to its growth to over 1.3 million individuals by 2015. The report addresses the broad spectrum of the RFID workforce from vendors, end users, academia and the government segments. The report includes 22 charts, graphs and exhibits. The report contains a list of 330 RFID vendor firms. It also includes footnoted references to secondary research.

The RFID Workforce Study used a survey tool to collect RFID workforce data. 103 individuals responded to the survey and provided input regarding the RFID workforce. RFID Tribe conducted follow up interviews to clarify answers provided and to collect qualitative information. RFID Tribe also used data from the RFID Talent and Career Center found on RFID Tribe’s website.

RFID technology standards and intellectual property issues rated highly in top concerns among the RFID workforce. RFID professionals hold most of the nearly 5,000 RFID-related patents. These stakeholders expressed concern regarding the treatment of RFID intellectual property in the marketplace.

The RFID Workforce Report paints a picture reflecting the unique perspective of those involved with RFID technology. The report provides a clear picture of where people work, how they innovate, what motivates them, the forces (market, social and economic forces) driving them, the challenges they face, their concerns and the roles they play in RFID technology. The report evaluates the landscape for RFID training, learning and skills certification of the RFID workforce. The RFID Workforce Report investigates the challenges and issues that RFID technology workers face. The report offers insight into the RFID workforce, provides conclusions and predicts its future direction.

Mark Johnson, RFID Tribe President said, “The RFID Workforce Report investigates the challenges and issues that RFID technology workers face. The report offers insight into the RFID workforce, provides conclusions and predicts its future direction.”

The RFID Workforce Report contents are found on the RFID Tribe website at www.rfidtribe.com.

Renowned Strategy Expert and Author Idris Mootee Spoke to a Group of Senior Executives in Europe on how the Crossover of Fashion and Technology will Create a new Wave of Growth

Idris Mootee, Chief Strategist of Blast Radius Inc. - a customer experience innovation firm, spoke on the subject of “Wearable Intimate Technologies” and “Memory Rich Smart Fashion” that he believed would shape how fashion is being "experienced". Pieces of garment will support the “server” of the clothes and the Internet will play a very important part of this new "user experience". People will ask each other the quesion of "What are you downloading to your jacket today?"

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 6, 2021 -- IESE, a leading European business school and ISEM a leading fashion management school organized this senior executive seminar annually to create an opportunity for top management in the sector to reflect on strategy and to discuss growth and innovation opportunities for the industry.

Attendees this year had the opportunity to hear from acclaimed business author and international strategy expert Idris Mootee as he offered thought-provoking concepts on how the crossover of fashion and technology will create a new wave of growth for the industry. Other speakers included Mr. Michele Norsa, CEO of Valentino, Mr. Manuel Puig, Chief Development Officer of Puif Beauty and Fashion Group and Mr. Xavier Mayer, VP of Morgan Stanley covering European luxury goods companies.

Idris spoke on future trends such as “Intimate Technologies” and “Memory Rich Fashion” where individualism and future fashion will be defined more by function -- not only how they look but the way how fashion is “experienced”. Pieces of garment will support the “server” of the clothes and the Internet will play a very important channel for sales. Apparel manufacturing will become modular and designers can still design clothes without understanding the technology. Customer experience innovation will drastically transform the fashion and luxury goods industries. In a not too distant future people will ask questions such as “What are you downloading to your jacket today?”

According to Idris, his vision of the future includes a world of socially perceptive wearable devices as fashion accessories; widespread adoption of smart fashion that understand the users context and capable of giving feedback or annotation of social intelligence by adding a dimension of social network information –-‘plugging in’ people into relevant events (sports etc.). He warned of issues like privacy, trust and sharing of contextual information, and people one day will ask the question “Is your smart jacket getting a bit too smart?”

He further suggested that wearable technology can now be deployed to create market ready products but our understanding of interaction models is still lacking when it comes to 'wearable'. How a 'wearer' uses fashion and how the surrounding environment and infrastructure can be harnessed needs to be further explored.

Former Patriot's Coach Believes High School Football Programs Need Better Video Presentation Tools

Hall-of-Fame coach Steve Sidwell and his son Brad will use breakthrough video teaching technology to get players smarter this season.

Franklin, MA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) June 3, 2021 -- Head Coach Brad Sidwell of Franklin High School in Franklin, Mass. recently fulfilled his dream to coach with his father, former NFL Hall-of-Fame coach Steve Sidwell. As a defensive coordinator with the Patriots, Saints, Packers, Colts and Oilers, Steve's defensive coaching skills, coupled with the teaching capabilities of the Landro® play analyzer, have encouraged head coach Brad Sidwell to believe next season will be Franklin's best yet.

As head coach of the Franklin Panthers for the past 10 years, Brad Sidwell reorganized his program to use his father Steve's talents after Steve retired from the NFL. Influencing the coaching staff and the players Steve helped raise the level of play on the whole, with the Panthers finishing the season 7-4, a better record than the previous two seasons. Brad explained, "I couldn't see having such a great defense resource and not taking advantage of it. The players respect and revere him. They work extra hard just to keep him happy."

Gearing up for his upcoming season, Brad began looking for a video teaching tool as aggressive as his newfound defensive coordinator. All he found were video editing systems. While helpful in newsrooms and in commercial video production, these systems were impractical because he'd have to turn his staff into technical editing specialists to make use of them. Brad explained, "This winter, I seriously studied all our options for video analysis. Video editors were obviously too expensive and complicated for my staff to use. Then Landro came to my attention. It was unbelievable. It's made for true teaching and presenting in front of your team, sort of a video PowerPoint but much easier to use. I am amazed at how it works. It keeps the staff from wasting time doing things that have nothing to do with coaching. The Landro staff has been extremely helpful and their enthusiasm for helping kids get better is contagious."

Brad continued, "The value in having quality coaches, NFL or otherwise, is in using their coaching expertise in video sessions, not in turning them into part-time video editors. Coaches know how to get in front of a team to motivate and teach, but using video tape halts the process. NFL coaches have tons of time, money and editing personnel to organize their video work. Most high school football coaches are also teachers who have to squeeze video review and practice in with everything else."

Steve agreed, adding, "Coaching aside, Landro is a great teaching tool, period. It's a system which is affordable and has many of the same qualities as the systems we used in the NFL. But better still, using Landro is simple and it doesn't require hired staff to complete."

The product, manufactured by IRIS Technologies of Greenburg PA, was produced specifically for coaches to give them tape-less access to any one of 100 games or any one of 20,000 plays. It's like having an Apple I-Pod with 1000s of songs at your finger tips, except instead of music, it features video of plays, training programs, play situations or "themes" like all third downs inside the 25 yard line. With no video tape or DVDs to get in the way, the Landro system is quickly becoming a fundamental tool in football gaming strategy across America.

"Adding technology of this kind is just as big a deal as adding great coaches to your staff," Brad claimed. "It's a whole new way to think about getting better." He and his father both look forward to seeing how their latest addition in technology will impact the season.

In the meantime, even as they plan for the future the novelty of having a New Orleans Saint's Hall-Of-Fame NFL coach hasn't all worn off. "I see him working with kids who have never put pads on before, and can tell he's shocked about their inexperience, but it never shows to the kids," says Brad. "The first time I told him to go help pass out the jerseys; I can still remember the look on his face… priceless."

About IRIS Technologies:
IRIS Technologies is a privately held company that manufacturers and sells digital products that make video easier to use. The Landro website www.landro.com is filled with testimonials from coaches around the country who claim that Landro has helped them win more games and receive more scholarships for their student athletes. The company is currently branching out to other sports and educational markets. Landro play analyzer is being used in colleges and universities for video analysis in counselor training and speech pathology and has recently been installed at the Pentagon to analyze news footage of the war in Iraq.

ETV Corporations VisiTyre Battery-less Tire Pressure Monitoring System and NHTSA Legislation are Hot Topics at SAE 2005 in Detroit

ETV Corporation applied serious pressure to its competitors with its ‘real time’ display of their VisiTyre Tire Pressure Monitoring System at SAE 2005 World Congress in Detroit Michigan. Automotive Engineers showed intense interest in the system’s battery-less sensors and immediate reporting capability on ignition.

Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- As one of the few interactive displays at this years SAE World Congress and the only TPMS technology company in attendance, VisiTyre drew a continuous stream of industry delegates to their Australian Trade Delegation booth, where a real time demonstration system highlighted the system’s ability to immediately report pressures and temperatures of all four wheels plus the spare continuously from the moment of ignition, whether the tires were stationary or rotating.


“The VisiTyre Inductive Coupling Technology provides a real solution for many of the contentious safety issues of the Final Rule of the TREAD ACT ’’ commented Phil Cohen, ETV’s Chief Technical Officer, “TPMS disablement by tire replacement is just not an issue with VisiTyre technology, it is inherently transparent to all replacement tires regardless of ferrous or carbon content”.

VisiTyre utilises electromagnetic inductive coupling to create a ‘power in - data out’ non contact communication channel to each of the vehicles wheel sensors, dispensing with the need for wheel module batteries and the unsatisfactory Radio Frequency communication channel of alternative systems. It is this use of RF technology with its limited power density due to the sensor batteries and associated radio path interference problems that creates the inability for these systems to operate through the vehicle’s metallic components whilst the vehicle is stationary.

“The consensus of comments from engineers stopping at our SAE display, in regards to the Final Ruling, was that allowing up to 20 minutes after the vehicle has moved off into the traffic for the TPMS systems to report to the driver, couldn’t possibly be regarded as a safety system” said ETV Chief Operating Officer Gregg Eichhorn, “particularly as they were seeing our VisiTyre TPMS working in front of them on all five tyres, with and without wheel motion and as soon as the ignition powered up the system. Clearly NHTSA has got it wrong if this is to be a safety system.”

With the availability of the VisiTyre inductive coupling technology, life should become much easier for the OEM and body electronics companies who are currently having to assess the most appropriate systems for implementation and compliance with the TREAD Act 2000 TPMS Mandate. NHTSA’s Final Ruling, which if unchallenged, will come in to force in October 2005, requiring 20% of MY 2006 passenger vehicles to be integrated with TPMS.

Author Releases Revised Version of EVP Book, "The Electronic Ghosts"

Due to the overwhelming interest in "White Noise," a movie about Electronic Voice Phenomena, author Nathan Toms decided to update and revise his EVP book, "The Electronic Ghosts." The book is available at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.

Kent, England (PRWEB) June 3, 2021 – Nathan Toms, an author and musician from England, announces the release of his revised fictional supernatural thriller book, "The Electronic Ghosts," based on Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP). Toms also has a remixed dance track, called "The Ghost in The Tape Machine."

Toms says the film "Poltergeist," the BBC TV drama "The Stone Tape" and "Breakthrough," a book about EVP by Konstantin Raudive, inspired him to write the "The Electronic Ghosts."

Both the book and the dance track were originally conceived in 1999, five years before the recently released movie "White Noise" was made, a British, Canadian and American production. Toms claims his book is similar to the idea behind "White Noise."

"I submitted my screenplay of 'The Electronic Ghosts' several times to UK film producers from 1999 to 2002, but it was rejected for not being mainstream enough," Toms says. But now with the popularity of "White Noise," it's evident that EVP has indeed become more of a mainstream topic.

"Due to the overwhelming interest in the subject, I decided to fine-tune some aspects of my own book," Toms says.

"The Electronic Ghosts," is mainly a thriller, but includes humour as well. The book touches on the frequently asked question, "Can people really communicate with the dead through electronic devices?" Andrew Stein, the main character, discovers a book about EVP and the ability to contact the spirit world with electronic machines; he then embarks on a mission to find answers to this mystery. Soon, Stein makes contact with ghosts, and thrilling adventures begin.

Toms' Web site, under the name Mystery Disguise (http://www.geocites.com/dannywilde1969/mysterydisguise.html), explains many facts about EVP and Konstantin Raudive.

"The Ghost In The Tape Machine" is a musical tribute to EVP. It was originally recorded in 1996 and released through Disguise Inc. (Toms' own record label). It contains one of Tom's own EVP messages he recorded and spoken samples of the scientific recording devices used by Konstantin Raudive in his research for the 1971 book "Breakthrough: An Amazing Experiment in Electronic Communication with the Dead."

"The Electronic Ghosts" "ISBN 1411616014" is available at: www.amazon.com, www.barnesandnoble.com, or can be purchased directly from the publisher at www.lulu.com.

The CD "The Ghost In The Tape Machine" by Mystery Disguise is available at Tower Records (www.towerrecords.com) and CD Baby (www.cdbaby.com), or can be downloaded at MSN Music (www.music.msn.com).

MAINDATA Introduces DVB-H IP Encapsulator Enabling New Mobile TV Broadcast Services

MAINDATA introduces DVB-H IPE crucial head-end equipment for introducing TV broadcast services to mobile networks.

(PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- DVB-H opens doors for mobile operators to provide attractive mobile TV broadcast e.g. sports, music. Mobile TV services have high selling potential mainly to the young audience. DVB-H brings mobile TV experience to mobile phone users and is candidate of important next wave revenue streams - similar to SMS - for mobile operators by moderate investment into their networks. There are no changes of existing GSM networks are necessary.

2G and 3G mobile networks are based on point-to-point protocols. Because of this “point-to-point“ unicast nature of transmission TV programming delivered just to a single user almost completely “eats“ capacity of the cell. Single cell transmitter capacity is around 380 kbps, while MPEG-4 compression video requires 200-400 kbps. As a consequence point-to-point architecture prohibits providing of Mobile TV services at affordable price and acceptable quality to an end-user. http://www.maindata.info/doc/MAINDATA-DVB-H.pps

MAINDATA DVB-H IPE allows transmission of over 10 TV programming within a single DVB-H broadcast stream (e.g. 12 TV channels each of 300 kbps within 4 Mbps transport stream).
http://www.maindata.info/doc/IPE-DVB-H.pdf

DVB-H is built at a point-to-multipoint “Broadcast type“ of protocol. This allows effective re-use of network resources and hence transmitting TV programming to unlimited number of users via a same bandwidth required to one user. In a DVB-H Broadcast type of transmission there is no difference in bandwidth consumption between one user and 1000 users. Furthermore TV Programming is broadcast via DVB network and not a GSM network - leaving capacity of mobile 2G, 3G networks unaffected. Integration of DVB-H with mobile networks does take place within mobile phone. Such a handset supports both networks. Four major mobile phones manufacturers are introducing DVB-H enabled mobile phones. This is backed by development of DVB-H chips.

From an investment point of view, DVB-H network can use the same frequencies and transmitters as terrestrial digital television network (DVB-T) which is already operational in several countries.

DVB-H standard has evolved from DVB-T by adding three crucial new features targeted at improved mobile broadcast capabilities and longer handsets battery life. Majority of the “mobility enabling“ features are hosted in IP Encapsulator, performing “time slicing“ and MPE FEC (forward error correction) accompanied with extended PSI/SI tables (Service and program information tables).

Unlike the DVB-S and DVB-T standards, DVB-H network is fully IP based where not only IP packets but also video and audio streams are encapsulated into IP packets.

For additional information on the news please contact Mr. Dusan Statelov CEO at e-mail protected from spam bots or visit www.maindata.info. MD DVB-H Encapsulator is available from June 2005. MAINDATA also offers setting up complete DVB-H platforms in cooperation with their partners.

Campbell, CA (PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- Anchor Bay Technologies, Inc. announced today that the DVDOÒ iScan™ HD+ High Resolution Video Scaling Engine has been chosen as the Home Cinema Choice Video Scaler of the Year.

The DVDO iScan™ HD+ is a high resolution video scaling processor and A/V switcher that sets a new standard for upconverting, cross-converting and even downconverting all video sources.

It is HDCP compliant over DVI, and also accepts legacy 480i/480p analog sources. The iScan HD+ functions as a complete A/V hub, providing simultaneous audio/video switching with automatic video upconversion/processing.

In a recent video scaler shootout, Home Cinema Choice concluded that the iScan HD+ was the “outright winner” earning five stars in all categories of testing, including ease-of-use, connectivity, and performance. According to the publication, the iScan HD+ is a “must have” final embellishment to your home theater system.

RoHS/WEEE Supply Chain Transition Workshop

Symphony Consulting announced today that it is introducing a new workshop focused on mitigating the supply chain risks associated with the RoHS andWEEE (Restriction of Hazardous Substances/Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) directives in Europe. RoHS and WEEE are the European Union’s environmental directives that limit the use of six hazardous chemicals by July 2006 and require companies to collect electronic waste from customers by August 13, 2005.

(PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- Symphony Consulting, Inc., a supply chain consulting and training company located in Silicon Valley, announced the launch of a new workshop that helps Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) take concrete steps towards mitigating revenue and inventory risks associated with the European Union’s RoHS/WEEE directives. Although most companies have already begun to address technical compliance issues associated with these two directives, industry experts believe that spot shortages in components and capacity throughout the electronics supply chain will lead to a revenue shortfall for many OEMs. Even companies that are exempt from this regulation will be affected as their supply base goes through the RoHS transformation.

“When it comes to the RoHS/WEEE planning and execution, good things do not come to those who wait,” said John Holton, Symphony’s Co-founder and CEO. “The transition to RoHS compliance has the makings of a ‘perfect storm’ for the supply chain. As component suppliers revamp their products, contract manufacturers retool their manufacturing lines, and OEMs change many of their products, there will be an unprecedented level of change and turmoil in a very compressed period of time. Our workshop is geared towards those companies that want solutions and methodologies to proactively protect themselves from the upcoming supply chain disruptions.”

About Symphony Consulting
Symphony Consulting is a Silicon Valley-based company that provides strategic supply chain and manufacturing outsourcing expertise to help high technology companies reach their financial and operational goals. Symphony's strategic consulting services and in-depth workshops on advanced supply chain methodologies help companies enhance revenue potential, increase profitability, and reduce inventory liability.

Linden, TX (PRWEB) June 3, 2021 -- SLS International (OTCBB: SITI) announced today that Music City Texas Theater, located in Linden, TX. has installed multiple SLS speakers in its 400-seat theater. The theater has been used for years as a leading local entertainment venue featuring Don Henley from the Eagles, Jackson Brown, John Anderson and Marty Stewart.

"The first show we did using the SLS speakers started off without out a real sound check," said Randy Golden, president of Golden Ear Audio, who performed the installation and who has also used SLS for numerous church installations. "We plugged in the units, gave about twenty minutes to dial them in and that was it. When the show was finished, the band members were giving the speakers numerous compliments. They were thrilled with their performance. They felt their harmonies and musical range were much better than they have ever been able to hear before."

Music City Texas Theater is an intimate venue with phenomenal sound. With a standard console and other professional-grade gear, the response from the patrons and regular supporters of the not-for-profit theater has been tremendous.

"The SLS system has been a big improvement to the way everyone sounds on stage," said Golden. "The musicians are more relaxed and put on a much better show. I've seen it first hand. With the application of the SLS speakers, the quality of the music has gotten better and the overall shows have significantly improved. We have been very successful with SLS."

Axiom Audio Introduces Breakthrough Design in New EP600 Subwoofer

The Epicenter EP600 subwoofer represents a major advance towards Axiom's goal of seeking "musical truth," -- producing the lowest, cleanest, loudest, smoothest distortion-free bass available in this price range and cabinet size.

Dwight, Ontario (PRWEB) June 2, 2021 -- Axiom Audio, the loudspeaker company that uses a rational approach to loudspeaker design based on careful acoustical measurements and uncompromising double-blind listening tests, today introduced the Epicenter EP600 digitally controlled subwoofer, which is capable of reproducing high-volume deep-bass musical frequencies to 16 Hz in an anechoic environment, one of the lowest musical tones audible to the human ear.

The Epicenter EP600 subwoofer represents a major advance towards Axiom's goal of seeking "musical truth," -- producing the lowest, cleanest, loudest, smoothest distortion-free bass available in this price range and cabinet size. Used in combination with either the M80ti or M60ti, Axiom's top-of-the-line tower speakers, the new EP600 digital sub effectively extends sound reproduction across the entire range of musical (and non-musical) frequencies to levels that are more felt than heard.

Unlike many other subwoofers that only claim extension to such depths but wimp out in real-life tests, the Axiom 600 uses a digital "algorithm" and a Digital Signal Processor chip. Using this "digital roadmap", the DSP controls every frequency from 17 Hz to 100 Hz, never deviating more than 1.5 dB through this entire range. Utilizing a massive 12-inch driver with a 3-inch diameter dual voice-coil and an Axiom custom-engineered amplifier that produces up to 600 watts of output power, the 600 sub will generate 111 dB SPL anechoic. In actual rooms, the EP600 is capable of even greater output by as much as 11 dB.

Reached at Colquhoun Audio Laboratories (Axiom's R&D; facility), Axiom founder and chief designer Ian Colquhoun called the EP-600's unique digital control system a "breakthrough," and said, "It represents a new performance range not achievable in a consumer subwoofer anywhere else in the marketplace or at any price."

For placement versatility, the EP600 subwoofer is offered in two orientations: vertically, in a floorstanding version, or horizontally, on its side. It measures 45.5" x 15" x 17" and has a suggested retail price, including shipping in North America, of $1,750 USD.

Today's Axiom speaker line offers a wide range of compact and floor-standing models that move the benchmarks further than ever. Axiom now produces eight-sided seamless cabinets with the ground-breaking Anti-Standing Wave (ASW) wedge-shaped design, esoteric aluminum-cone and titanium drivers, and internal crossover network innovations.

Axiom has combined the results of its acoustical measurement and listening tests to build a complete line of stereo and home theater loudspeakers. By emphasizing the practical application of ongoing research, Axiom continues to extend people's expectations of performance and value. Indeed, Axiom's most expensive tower speaker, the six-driver M80ti, is just $1,240 per pair. Complete Axiom home theater surround sound systems range from $1,100 to $4,000.

Utilizing the most advanced computerized manufacturing equipment in the industry, critically acclaimed Axiom Audio is one of the world's finest loudspeaker designers and manufacturers. Axiom Audio is a division of Colquhoun Audio Laboratories. For further information about the company and its entire product line, please visit www.axiomaudio.com Axiom products can be ordered on-line at Axiom's Web site www.axiomaudio.com or by phone through the Axiom toll-free number: 1-866-244-8796. Axiom loudspeakers are sold via their website, and the prices shown include shipping costs to all US and Canadian destinations.

Aplicom Takes over Manufacturing and Sales of Nokia's M2M GSM Modules

Aplicom, a Finnish manufacturer of wireless platforms for professional applications, today announced that the company will take over the manufacturing, sales and support of Nokia's M2M (machine-to-machine) GPRS modules. The products will subsequently be sold globally under the Aplicom brand.

Espoo, Finland (PRWEB) June 2, 2021 -- Aplicom, a Finnish manufacturer of wireless platforms for professional applications, today announced that the company will take over the manufacturing, sales and support of Nokia's M2M (machine-to-machine) GPRS modules. The products will subsequently be sold globally under the Aplicom brand.

Formerly known as Nokia 12 and 12i, the Aplicom 12 and 12i GSM modules are designed for M2M applications and other wireless solutions. Aplicom 12i is a dual-band GSM module for 900/1800 MHz mobile networks used in Europe and Asia. Aplicom 12 offers the equivalent functionality over the 850/1900 MHz mobile networks used, for example, in North America.

"The agreement is an extension of Aplicom’s close, longstanding relationship with Nokia in mobile and wireless data communications. With 15 years of experience in designing and manufacturing M2M and mobile data hardware platforms, Aplicom is ideally qualified to support its customers in this fast-developing market," said Kimmo Savolainen, General Manager, Nokia.

The Aplicom 12i and 12 modules are available immediately. The manufacturing of the modules will be transferred from Nokia to Aplicom in the beginning of July 2005. Aplicom will continue to serve the extensive community of Nokia M2M users, providing service to all customers, distributors and system providers reselling or using Nokia M2M modules. Nokia will support Aplicom throughout the transition.

"From home appliances and vending machines to industrial equipment, wireless machine-to-machine communication has enormous potential to increase companies' profits and competitiveness through more efficient processes and enhanced customer service. We are delighted to extend our product line with the Aplicom 12i and 12 GSM modules formerly manufactured by Nokia. These products are a natural addition to our offering, and the agreement is in line with Aplicom’s strategic decision to focus on M2M hardware platforms," said Vesa Helkkula, CEO, Aplicom.

Easily integrated into devices or application systems, Aplicom's intelligent Java™ programmable GSM modules support industry-standard protocols including EDGE, GPRS and TCP/IP, with automated connectivity and various integrated authentication mechanisms. The ability to execute custom applications on the GSM module eliminates the need for a separate CPU, thus lowering total system cost for device manufacturers. Additionally, fast data connections enabled by EDGE class 6 support make the Aplicom 12i module the ideal wireless modem.

Other Aplicom products include GPRS-based telemetry and tracking devices, embedded computers and related software platforms for vehicle and M2M applications. Aplicom has an extensive value-added reseller network globally, with a focus in European markets.

Aplicom customers include several European telecom operators as well as global vehicle and off-road machine manufacturers. Aplicom has been awarded an ISO 9001-2000 quality certificate. The company's principal development and production facilities are located in Finland.

GlobalPetFinder not only locates lost pets, but it also allows owners to check on the location of their pet at all times by dialing F-O-U-N-D on their chosen wireless device. GlobalPetFinder will immediately respond with the position (map or address depending on the device) of the pet. Pet owners can also monitor the environmental temperature of their pet, being alerted if temperature conditions become dangerously hot or cold for the pet.

"Each year, more than ten million pets are lost and the cost of handling these lost pets is approaching one billion dollars," said Jennifer Durst, the CEO of GPS Tracks, LLC. "GlobalPetFinder will provide pet owners with a peace of mind."

By logging onto the GlobalPetFinder website, pet owners can create a virtual fence for their pet. Once the pet leaves the set boundaries, the system alerts the owner that their pet has left the preset parameter and continues to send minute-to-minute updates to the wireless device of choice, such as a cell phone, PDA or computer, while the pet remains outside the approved area. The password-protected system provides owners with the option of programming their home fence and up to five additional fence locations for the park, beach or location of choice. In addition to the fence locations, owners can program the device with a "walk" setting, which allows the pet to travel outside the fenced areas undisturbed. Tracking may be initialized remotely from your wireless device should the pet break away.

The device is non-invasive and requires no installation or surgical implantation and does not use electric shock of any kind. The water-resistant device requires 3 rechargeable AAA NiMH batteries, included in the activation package. GlobalPetFinder will automatically alert the owner if batteries begin to run low and it is time for recharging.

Pricing & Availability
GlobalPetFinder is available exclusively through the website www.globalpetfinder.com. The price for the system is $349.99. Upon receipt of GlobalPetFinder, customers will be required to subscribe to the "Peace of Mind" plan for $17.99 a month and a one-time only activation fee of $34.99. Additional locate plans and details are available on the website.

(PRWEB) June 1, 2021 -- FORMOSA TELETEK, a leading provider of Bluetooth wireless connectivity products for the PC, cellular phone, and automotive accessories, and LTCC components, today announces its new generation of Bluetooth Headset - Sporty. The Sporty headset provides crisp sound, high quality, and extended talk time for wireless and hands-free phone conversations. Lightweight, it is comfortable to wear and adjusts to fit either ear. It also features voice activation functions making it a true hands-free solution. This user friendly solution meets the legal requirements in many countries for hands-free phone conversations when driving.

The Sporty Bluetooth headset takes full advantage of XEMICS’ ultra low power Bluetooth circuits functioning on a single 120 mAh Li-ion cell, providing an extended talk time up to 10 hours. It is fully compliant with the Bluetooth specifications and will work with any Bluetooth enabled mobile phone supporting the headset and/or hands-free profile.

“With the handset market remaining by far the largest Bluetooth market, the numbers of cellular phone headsets rises accordingly, with a forecasted 30 million units shipped this year. FORMOSA TELETEK has positioned itself to grab a significant portion of this market” says Keven Yang, Executive Vice President of FORMOSA TELETEK. “The Sporty was developed to provide complete freedom to cellular users who are interested in a headset that does not require a cord between the phone and the headset. With 10 hours talk time, our wireless, comfortable, stylish and affordable headset is designed for professional and private use every day.” This new product will be presented at the Computex Fair in Taipei, Taiwan, May 31st – June 4th, 2005.

All hands-free profile features are supported and easily accessible thanks to the comfortable Man-Machine-Interface (MMI). For end users’ convenience a three button design was chosen which allows easy access to the volume control and phone answer/end buttons. The flexible chip architecture from XEMICS enables the MMI to be upgraded easily. Both companies worked together on this generation of headsets to take full advantage of the ultra low power capability of the XEMICS chipset. The range of the Bluetooth link is particularly helpful in cars and other transportation systems. An incoming call will ring through to the headset and a simple push will transfer it to the headset. On the other hand, if the cell phone supports voice dialing one will be able to use that feature through the headset, without touching the phone at all.

Frontier Silicon Launches DABplus Feature for Digital Radio

New addition to world’s most successful Venice DAB modules enables electronic programme guide and personal video recorder like capability for digital radio

London (PRWEB) June 1, 2021 -- Frontier Silicon – the leading fabless manufacturer of semiconductors for mobile digital television and DAB digital radio products – has launched a significant new capability that will bring personal-video-recorder (PVR) like capabilities to digital radio. The company has introduced DABplus, a combination of a sophisticated advanced electronic programme guide (EPG) and advanced recording and timer capabilities for its highly successful Venice module to transform the personal listening experience of DAB digital radio. The Chorus processor at the heart of this module has fuelled the current digital radio expansion and has now shipped over two million devices.

Anthony Sethill, CEO of Frontier Silicon, said, “DABplus adds a totally new dimension to DAB digital radio, bringing a whole new personal listening experience to the consumer. Users can bring up seven days of programmes, select what they want to listen to or record, and use any number of timers to record their favourite programmes onto a memory card for playback on the same radio or any other compatible audio player. This will revolutionise digital radio just as PVR has revolutionised the television viewing experience.”

The Venice module allows manufactures to quickly bring a DAB digital radio to market, since it contains all necessary components and requires only power source, antenna, display and keypad to be added for a fully featured product. The addition of DABplus provides users of DAB digital radios with access to programme information and a range of features such as genre browsing, timer-set recording and a rich set of alarm features. Frontier Silicon’s software provides an interface through which EPG and dynamic service information (DLS) can be viewed. DABplus includes scrolling text for lines that extend beyond the 16-character screen width, enabling a rich user interface to be implemented.

Anthony Sethill adds, “The addition of DABplus to our market leading modules will help accelerate the adoption of new broadcast features such as EPG and is therefore an important next step for the digital radio market.” He says, “Our engineering team and strategic partners have been working on the Eureka 147 standard for over 10 years – longer than any other group – and have in excess of 100 man years of experience in perfecting the silicon and protocol stacks. In this process we have been instrumental in assisting broadcasters like the BBC and DigitalOne with the rollout of DAB digital radio services, with our chips and modules at the heart of over 70 percent of DAB digital radios on the market.”
