CanAlaska Identifies Multiple Uranium Zones North East Athabasca Project, Saskatchewan

Canalaksa Ventures has defined fourteen anomalous zones.

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 30, 2021 -- CanAlaska Ventures Ltd. (TSX.V-CVV: OTCBB-CVVLF) www.canalaska.com, Toll Free 1.800.667.1870, is pleased to report the first quantitative results from uranium exploration and sampling at the Company's North East Athabasca Project. This large project consists of 490,340 acres (1984 km2) and straddles the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border. Athabasca sandstone outliers to the west and south (Reilly Basin) indicate the strong possibility that this area was once covered by Athabasca sandstone. The North East Project exploration licenses cover the northern extension of the Wollaston Belt, which underlies all of the major uranium mines in the eastern Athabasca Basin.

This summer the Company has carried out detailed lake sediment sampling over the entire license area, and is awaiting results on the majority of the 1,900 individual lake samples. Previous exploration work in the North East Project area in the late 1970s identified uranium boulder trains and uranium-rich lake sediments. CanAlaska's current program of surface follow-up and prospecting with a field staff of 15 geologists and prospectors has led to the discovery of new areas of mineralised boulders and outcrops.

Canalaska Ventures has defined fourteen anomalous zones. Of these, seven have had previous exploration, and seven are either new zones or significant additions to previous work. The geochemical results obtained from the early part of this year's survey of six of the zones are tabulated below. An extensive boulderfield in the Hook Lake Zone has uranium values from 0.2% to 3.65% U3O8 (4lb – 73 lb / ton U3O8), and is located south of mineralised outcropping zones of pelitic gneiss which have returned preliminary values from 0.31% to 0.81% U3O8 (6.2 – 16.2 lb / ton U3O8). Significant molybdenum mineralisation is associated with most samples, along with occasional higher gold values. These priority areas are now receiving detailed follow-up exploration by the Company's field crews to establish drill testing priorities.See
http://www.canalaska.com/s/NewsReleases.asp?ReportID=116069&_Type=News-Releases&_Title=CanAlaska-Identifies-Multiple-Uranium-Zones-North-East-Athabasca-Project-Sa

Highlights:

* Extensive uranium mineralisation in basement immediately to north of Athabasca contact

* Uranium boulder trains 0.2% to 3.65 % U3O8 on surface

* 14 target zones, with 6 priority zones identified

* Blanket coverage with over 1,900 lake sediment samples

* New outcrop discoveries of 0.31% to 0.81% uranium from current work

About the Athabasca Basin

The Athabasca Basin hosts a number of major uranium deposits including Cigar Lake and McArthur River, two of the largest and highest grade uranium deposits in the world. Production from the Athabasca Basin accounts for over 30% of the world's supply of uranium. For the past two decades, uranium exploration within the Athabasca Basin has been at a relatively low level and it is evident that the potential for the discovery of other deposits remains high. Peter Dasler, President of CanAlaska, has noted that “before commencing our staking program, CanAlaska carried out a comprehensive analysis of existing geological and geophysical data, and the Company has identified and acquired properties that are well located and have considerable potential. The results of our initial airborne surveys have produced targets which support this potential.” 83

The Company and its shareholders are positioned for what CanAlaska believes will be the largest expansion in uranium exploration since the 1970s. Harry Barr, Chairman of CanAlaska has stated, “CanAlaska holds one of the largest uranium exploration portfolios in the Athabasca Basin and is actively exploring its properties”.

About CanAlaska Ventures Ltd.

CanAlaska is a mineral exploration company concentrating on exploration for uranium in the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan, Canada, where the Company has recently assembled a large land package (over 1,650,000 acres).

Sensory Introduces New Speech Recognition MicroController

Low-Cost RSC-464 Enables a New Class of Applications

Santa Clara, Calif. (PRWEB) August 30, 2021 -- Sensory, Inc., the world leader in embedded speech technologies, today released the RSC-464 integrated circuit as the latest member of the RSC-4x family.

It joins the RSC-4128, one of the most widely deployed speech recognition ICs, in providing speech recognition, synthesis and system control on a single chip.

By balancing features required for everyday electronic devices with the costs required to meet customer expectations for those products, the RSC-464 opens up a new market for speech recognition control. The RSC-464 also comes to market supported by a powerful suite of easy-to-use tools. “The RSC-464 is an invitation to every manufacturer of electronics products to add speech to their human interface”, notes Todd Mozer, Sensory's CEO. “If an electronic product has a user interface, it can have a speech user interface added for very little incremental cost, and the RSC-464 makes this practical.”

RSC-464 Supplies General Control with Speech I/O

Sensory's RSC-464 integrated circuit allows manufacturers to replace existing 8-bit microcontrollers with a voice-enabled solution, which is becoming increasingly more popular as recognition technologies become more accurate and pricing drops. The RSC-464 is a powerful general-purpose microcontroller inside a speech recognition system-on-chip that includes 16-bit ADC, DAC, digital filter unit, math unit, 4K RAM, 64K ROM, output amplification, timers, comparators and more. Sensory's aggressive pricing also invites its use as a slave for speech recognition, voice biometrics, and speech and music playback. The slave approach makes it easy to add to existing product designs with minimal changes to the primary controller software. The RSC- 464 IC sells for under $1.10 in large volumes, making it a strong option for use as a replacement for an existing microcontroller or as a slave.

RSC-464 Implements New FluentChipTM 2.0 Technologies

A variety of technologies in Sensory's world-class FluentChip firmware library run on the RSC-464, including speaker independent (SI) recognition, speaker dependent (SD) recognition, speaker verification (voice password) biometrics, voice record, speech compression/playback and MIDI-like music synthesis. Just released, FluentChip 2.0 offers new options for combining SI and SD in a single command set, allowing for personalization that was never before possible. Also available is a new technology that allows the RSC-464 to control mouth movements of animated dolls so the movements appear naturally in time with speech. Together, it is now possible to create a product that “understands” speech out of the box, can be trained to recognize a particular person's voice, and also generates movements that makes the product appear to be more natural and lifelike.

Development Tools Enable Rapid International Vocabulary Development

Sensory's Quick T2SITM(Text to Speaker Independent) Toolkit complements the RSC-464 as it allows for rapid creation of speaker independent command sets by simply typing in the desired recognition vocabulary as text. The recognition set of words or phrases can then be downloaded onto the included RSC-4x Demo/Evaluation Board for quick prototype creation and testing. This process yields a proven recognition set in a matter of minutes. Using state-of-the-art Hidden Markov Modeling combined with advanced neural networks, the need for user training is eliminated. These recognition technologies are derived from a database of sampled speech and are based on the rules of phonology – the environment in which sounds occur in languages. This process significantly accelerates adding new languages to Sensory's speaker independent technologies. This unique approach is now available in U.S. English, German, Italian, Latin American Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and Mandarin Chinese, with UK English and French available later this year. Compressed speech is now available in any language as well, so products can truly “talk and hear” around the world.

Additional tools include Quick Synthesis, which allows fast development of speech output files by recording and compressing a file with the touch of a button, and also supports easy scoring of MIDI-like music. A fully-integrated IDE for software development is provided by Phyton, Inc., including assembler, linker, debugger and file management, as well as an optional C compiler to accelerate coding.

PhatWare Announces CalliGrapher 8.0 with Support for Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0

Support for Windows Mobile 5.0 and New Data Input Method are top features for award-winning handwriting recognition software.

Mountain View, Calif. (PRWEB via MobilityNewswire) August 29, 2021 -- PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, announces the immediate availability of CalliGrapher 8.0. Most notable new features of the award-winning handwriting recognition software include support for Windows Mobile 5.0, a new soft input panel called Write Pad and the Statistical Analyzer.

CalliGrapher, one of the most popular Pocket PC handwriting recognition applications on the market, analyzes pen strokes written in any application window or in the designated Write Pad area, then converts those pen strokes into text and sends the recognized text to the target application. Employing advanced fuzzy logic and neural net techniques, CalliGrapher recognizes arbitrary alphanumeric strings as well as words contained in its integrated dictionary.

CalliGrapher 8.0 supports the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 software platform. In addition to the classic CalliGrapher "Write Anywhere" input method, which allows users to enter handwritten information anywhere on the screen, CalliGrapher 8.0 introduces a new soft input panel called Write Pad. Write Pad is a specified area at the bottom of the screen where users can enter handwritten information that is instantly recognized and converted to the digital text. The text can be easily sent to the desired application.

"We developed CalliGrapher 8.0 to enhance Pocket PC computing through a unique handwriting recognition application," said PhatWare President Stan Miasnikov. "We believe we have accomplished this with Write Pad and the Statistical Analyzer; and our Beta testers agree."

CalliGrapher 8.0 includes a new Statistical Analyzer feature that improves overall handwriting recognition quality by addressing common recognition errors. The analyzer learns the user's writing habits by accumulating information about the words the user writes over a period of time.

Mining People's Minds to Stimulate New Product Development in the Wine Country

A California new product development company is mining the minds of retirees and housewives and using the uncovered frustrations and annoyances of everyday life to stimulate a flow of new products and share the revenue with everyone involved. Their goal is to increase society's capacity for creation.

(PRWEB) August 29, 2021 -- An innovative new product development venture in California's wine country is looking for pioneering, collaborative, abstract thinkers to turn their knowledge and experience into money through a dynamic new product development process based on a new paradigm of inventing.

Are you a CEO, CFO, VP of marketing, new product development, licensing, skilled in joint ventures, alliances, manufacturing, or a single mom with a creative streak? Do you live in the future and think about what might be, rather than just what currently exists?

Do you have a broad overview of markets and what they need? Or do you have experience in a field where you know there are tremendous opportunities for change and improvement and loads of problems to solve that have been ignored for years?

Now you have someone who will listen to you.

Edison Innovations LLC, a Sonoma county venture, seeks to enlist experienced executives, whether retired or employed and other experienced workers for the development and testing of a new patent-pending Needs-to-Market™ process expected to produce a flow of new products for a broad range of industries and markets.

"We recognize the vast experience of retired and underemployed individuals and their underutilized intellectual assets, including their knowledge and experience. This is an opportunity for individuals to put their experience to work and increase the capacity for creation in society," said Larry MacDonald, CEO of Edison. Edison's process is designed to monetize life experience (i.e. turn knowledge and experience into money).

MacDonald believes the process will also help provide creative solutions to pressing social problems, as well.

Using Internet-enabled collaborative tools, Edison will assemble collaborative teams to discover opportunities, evaluate the business case, invent solutions, and spin-off or license new products into the marketplace.

Their collaborative model is intended to share future revenue from royalties or sales with all participants on the basis of the value of their contribution.

Edison Innovations is accepting resumes at this time from observant individuals who can notice and record life's little irritations and frustrations, as well as those experienced in new product development, licensing, finance, marketing or manufacturing who wish to be considered as future participants in our marketing/licensing, software development, finance, industrial design, legal and venture capital departments.

MacDonald says, "We are not looking for those looking for a pay check at this time; we are looking for those leaders, thinkers, creators, who are collaborative, have high integrity, and are interested in becoming an integral part of a new way of solving problems and creating wealth for themselves and all other participants in the process."

"This is a long-term process that will have plenty of room for everyone to make a contribution. It will be fun and exciting and challenging, and you will make a difference," said MacDonald.

If you are one of the few people in the world who can't resist creative brainstorming and out of the box thinking, send your resume and cover letter explaining your interests to be considered for a part in the early stages of this exciting opportunity to Edison Innovations LLC, Box 357, Kenwood, CA 95452.

The company will employ an Internet-based platform enabling people from all over the country, and ultimately from around the world to be involved. The stimulus for the company's process and name came from Thomas Edison's invention factory, which produced the greatest volume of patents of any inventor.

Sifos Technologies Introduces the Fastest PowerSync™ Analyzer, the RackPack PSA, Aimed at High Speed, High Port Count IEEE 802.3af Testing

Sifos Technologies releases the RackPack PowerSync™ Analyzer (PSA). The RackPack, a 48-port PSA, significantly reduces both the time and the cost of testing Power over Ethernet (PoE) for high port count applications such as System Test, Burn-In and Manufacturing. The RackPack can be expanded to test systems with the highest number of ports. As the port count of the system increases, the time required to test per port decreases, reducing the total cost of test.

Boston, Ma. (PRWEB) August 25, 2021 -- Sifos Technologies today announced the addition of the RackPack PSA to its PowerSync™ Analyzer family of IEEE 802.3af - Power over Ethernet (PoE) test solutions. The RackPack reduces the per-port cost of testing IEEE 802.3af compliant Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) where port counts are large (48 ports or more) and fast test speed is critical.

“RackPack is focused on applications where many PoE ports need to be tested, and testing speed and cost of testing are the most important parameters,” said David Lucia, Sifos Technologies President.

The RackPack enables fully automated measurements and analysis. Tcl/TK software scripts are optimized to fully take advantage of RackPack’s measurement resources.

“PSE manufacturers can expect average, per-port testing times on the order of 10 seconds or less per port tested given the capabilities of the RackPack,” said Peter Johnson, Sifos Technologies Technical Director.

Scripts written for any PSA can be directly used, with or without modification or editing, by the RackPack. This allows all engineers from different departments to leverage the work of others, saving significant time in the product development cycle.

The graphical user interface (GUI) software favored by R&D; engineers and the PSE Conformance Test Suite (CTS) software, that are standard with the PSA 1200, are not included with the RackPack, but are available as options.

Fujitsu Joins-Up with TVonics to Bring First of Its Kind All-European Digital Terrestrial Set Top Box to Market

Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) has been working closely with UK digital set top box (STB) manufacturer, TVonics Limited, who is commencing mass production of its stylish, digital terrestrial set top box for the UK and European markets. This unique, European designed STB uses key components that have been either designed or manufactured within Europe. The TVonics designed product, which delivers fast, responsive performance at an affordable price, will be on sale from the end of September 2005.

Frankfurt, Germany, and Pencoed, Wales, UK, (PRWEB) August 25, 2021 -- Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) has been working closely with UK digital set top box (STB) manufacturer, TVonics Limited, who is commencing mass production of its stylish, digital terrestrial set top box for the UK and European markets. This unique, European designed STB uses key components that have been either designed or manufactured within Europe. The TVonics designed product, which delivers fast, responsive performance at an affordable price, will be on sale from the end of September 2005.

This new STB, manufactured in the UK by Sony for TVonics, is initially being rolled-out to serve the high-growth UK digital terrestrial market for Freeview services. Offering a distinctive styling and form factor, it offers end consumers a refreshing alternative to the traditional silver or grey rectangular boxes currently on sale.

Designed to minimise ecological impact through the use of lead-free components, a recyclable aluminium enclosure, and low power consumption, it will conform to the Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) EU mandate for products sold from January 2006 onwards. It is expected to be in high demand by British consumers, eager to enjoy the popular range of digital television programmes available on Freeview.

TVonics selected FME’s ‘SmartMPEG’ MB86H25B decoder for use in the new STB, due to its low power consumption & system cost, which was made possible through its optimised silicon integration design techniques. The chip was designed at FME’s Multimedia Development Centre in Frankfurt, Germany, and requires just one SDRAM and a Flash memory, consuming less than 700mW in full operation.

This 3rd Generation SmartMPEG device has enjoyed excellent success around the world, with over 10 million unit deployments. The design win at TVonics spearheads its expansion into the buoyant European digital terrestrial television market.

FME’s SmartMPEG family allows many different applications to be executed - in this case an optimised DVB-T Adapter with interactivity - but it is also suited to automotive applications; Personal Video Recorder, Dual/Twin Receiver, Portable and semi-professional applications; as well as satellite receivers, when used in combination with Fujitsu's QPSK Silicon Tuner.

The two companies were able to combine their experience in order to reduce the STB product development time to just 6 months. This was partly due to the application software being based on the Cabot Aurora DVB Middleware reference port, carried out last year between FME & Cabot Communications.

Production of the circuit board, product assembly, test and packing is being carried out by Sony Manufacturing, Pencoed Technology Park, UK - a natural choice for TVonics which is based on-site within the Technium [email protected], technology incubation centre, established by Sony and the Welsh Development Agency in 2004.

Paul Fellows, CEO of TVonics said, “The silicon chip technology and technical support provided by Fujitsu, together with the software technology of Cabot, has enabled TVonics to enter the market quickly with a product delivering superior performance at a very competitive price. This development has been an excellent example of how three European based design groups can work together to deliver class leading products to market quickly”.

He continued, “The excellent co-operation from Fujitsu has led to very close links being forged between the two companies resulting in the perfect design mix. The new box will be announced and featured on our Stand 215, Hall 5 at IBC 2005 in Amsterdam from 9th-13th September”.

Johannes Richter, Multimedia Business Unit Director at FME, added, “The experience and professionalism from TVonics perfectly matched our own when it came to the design of an elegant, unique product to bring to market in the UK and Europe. We are extremely happy to have been part of this design and look forward to a long relationship with TVonics”.

He added, “We were able to achieve this fastest turnaround time from design start to production start in just 6 months including Cabot’s Pan-European Aurora DVB middleware stack with MHEG-5 functionality, because of the skilled engineers at TVonics designing a right-first-time solution, and the availability of Middleware from Cabot”.

Darren Standing, Business Development Manager at Cabot Communications commented, “Since being selected by TVonics in February 2005 to support its development programme, we have worked closely with engineers at FME and TVonics to deliver for the first time, an Aurora DVB-T Middleware market deployment running on FME's SmartMPEG technology. TVonics has used the performance and flexibility of Aurora to rapidly integrate its own innovatively styled user interface, system software and device drivers to deliver a market leading DVB-T solution in record time”.

There are up to 80 million TVs and VCRs in the UK, and the British government wants all receiving equipment to be able to handle digital signals by 2012, when analogue broadcasting will be switched off. Throughout Europe, an estimated 600 million units will need to be converted or replaced with digitally-enabled equipment in the next 10 years.

Figures above are based on typical usage of 2.5 TVs or VCRs in all registered TV households.

Fuji Novel Batteries “Reverse Current Prevention" Protects Devices From Harm

Fuji Novel Batteries, one of the largest manufacturers of batteries for portable electronics and digital cameras worldwide, is pleased to offer a specially engineered “reverse current protection” feature in its Fuji Novel D-Size and C-Size alkaline batteries, now available at retailers across the nation.

(PRWEB) August 25, 2021 -- Fuji Novel Batteries, one of the largest manufacturers of batteries for portable electronics and digital cameras worldwide, is pleased to offer a specially engineered “reverse current protection” feature in its Fuji Novel D-Size and C-Size alkaline batteries, now available at retailers across the nation. This feature actually blocks the completion of negative-to-negative current in batteries that are connected in series, thereby virtually eliminating potential damage and premature discharge from reverse current in incorrectly installed batteries.

To prevent the possibility of two negative terminals from touching each other if they are improperly inserted, Fuji Novel LR20 (D size) and LR14 (C size) alkaline batteries have specially-designed resin protrusions on their negative face to ensure that negative-to-negative contact is incomplete, and therefore no current conduction can occur. This feature prevents both the inadvertent and the deliberate installation of batteries where both negative terminals can touch, which, at worst, can send a potentially harmful surge into the device.

“We are very pleased to once again lead the industry by providing this reverse current protection in our C and D-Size Alkaline batteries – the batteries most likely to be connected in series, and therefore, in greatest need of protection,” noted Russ Bongiorno, Vice President of Marketing at Fuji Novel Batteries. “Fuji Novel has been an innovator and a pioneer in the battery marketplace for decades. The reverse current protection innovation is just another example of the forward thinking that we bring to the industry.”

All Fuji Novel Alkaline batteries offer superior performance characteristics. Today's portable consumer electronic products like digital cameras and MP3 players are more sophisticated and require more power. As today's high-tech handheld electronics incorporate higher-speed digital processing, their hunger for battery power grows dramatically. Therefore the demands on portable power sources, especially Alkaline batteries, are skyrocketing.

State-of-the-art techniques and materials enable Fuji Novel to produce batteries of the highest quality and longest life to meet the needs of today's consumer electronic devices. Through the use of an innovative technology that incorporates an advanced cathode material with more electrolytes in its Alkaline batteries, Fuji Novel ushered in a new era of high performance portable power. In fact, recent independent tests conducted by the ACTS Testing Laboratory, showed that Fuji Novel AA batteries outlasted recognized battery brands.

Fuji Novel meets the highest manufacturing standards, ensuring superior product performance worldwide. All Fuji Novel batteries undergo rigorous quality control tests that ensure exceptional operation and superior consistency, providing outstanding value for consumers every hour of every day in a myriad of portable power uses all over the world.

For over 50 years, Fuji Novel Batteries has been recognized as a market leader and innovator in the hyper-competitive battery industry. Fuji Novel pioneered the launch of Carbon Zinc battery technology in 1950, and was first to develop and market a line of Manganese batteries, launching the product line in 1969. An environmentally-conscious company, Fuji Novel was the first battery manufacturer to produce 100% Mercury Free Formula and Cadmium-free batteries. Fuji Novel manufacturers and markets batteries under its own internationally-recognized brand, and is the leading manufacturer of private-label batteries worldwide.

How Do You Make Your AVR Programmer Four Times Faster?

Standard AVR In System Programming has used the serial programming method. Now Kanda have introduced a JTAG programmer for AVR microcontrollers that is four times as fast but comes in a robust case for production, with a simple user interface.

(PRWEB) August 24, 2021 -- Up to now AVR microcontrollers have been programmed in a ZIF socket using parallel programming, or have been programmed in circuit using the In System Programming (ISP serial programming) protocol and interface. Now Atmel have provided a third interface using JTAG and Kanda have developed a programmer for it.

The main reason for Atmel adding a JTAG controller to the AVR microcontrollers was to improve In Circuit Emulation of the chips. Atmel and Kanda have exploited this feature very effectively, using the brilliant AVR Studio software as an interface. So now low cost emulators are freely available for AVR, unlike emulators for the PIC, and are very effective for code debugging. For example, look at http://www.kanda.com/products/Kanda/JTAGAVR.html.

Lots of developers are now happy using the JTAG protocol for debugging but tend to stick with the ISP interface for programming. This is because production engineers do not want AVR Studio and fragile ICE hardware on the production line, for obvious reasons. Therefore, Kanda have now introduced a robust JTAG programmer that gives all the benefits of JTAG for the production environment.

The major advantage of the JTAG programming interface over the serial programming interface is its speed. Typical serial programming speeds are about 4KBytes/second while JTAG can manage 16Kbytes/second. This translates to about 8 seconds to program a complete Atmega128.

The JTAG interface is only available on the newer ATmega devices with more than 40 pins, so older AVR devices, ATtiny and smaller ATmega chips, such as the Atmega8, are not supported. This is why Kanda have supplied an adapter and one piece of software for both JTAG and serial programming, so it is easy to swap between programming methods.

So, you can improve programming speeds by a factor of four for devices with a JTAG interface, yet retain the ability to program other AVR devices without any major changes to your setup -– same software, same programmer, different interface.

For more information, see
http://www.kanda.com/products/Kanda/AVRUSB-JTAG.html

About Kanda:
Kanda manufacture and supply a wide range of embedded system tools. We are specialists in In System Programming, low cost emulators and training systems for a wide range of microcontrollers, PLDs and memory devices, including PIC, AVR, ST7 and COP8. We also supply interfaces for USB, CAN Bus and serial to Ethernet conversion.

Speedline Technologies Reports Highest Bookings Since 2000; Backlog Up 68% Over Previous Quarter -- New Product Introductions and Process Expertise Support Surge

Speedline Technologies, Inc., today reported that its bookings during the second quarter of 2005 rose 44% over the first quarter and in July reached their highest level since 2000. At the end of July, the backlog had climbed 68% versus the end of the first quarter.

FRANKLIN, MA (PRWEB) August 24, 2021 -- Speedline Technologies, Inc., today reported that its bookings during the second quarter of 2005 rose 44% over the first quarter and in July reached their highest level since 2000. At the end of July, the backlog had climbed 68% versus the end of the first quarter.

“We’ve witnessed a major upturn in business since April as large customers increased capital equipment spending to respond to growth in the consumer electronics and automotive industries,” said Pierre de Villemejane, president and chief executive officer (CEO), Speedline Technologies. “The market has enthusiastically responded to the introductions of our new MPM AccelaTM printer and Camalot XyflexPro® + dispenser with strong order rates.”

In addition, de Villemejane said the trend toward lead-free manufacturing drove healthy global demand for new capital equipment. “Our process expertise in lead-free technology helped support higher bookings for our wave soldering and reflow oven products,” he said.

On a geographic basis, Speedline’s CEO said European bookings surged at the end of the second quarter, after a slow first half. Hungary, Turkey, and Russia remain bright spots as investment continues in those countries’ electronics manufacturing sectors. Germany also showed continuing strength.

“The Americas have been strong since the first quarter, with Brazil making a major rebound and Mexico improving,” he said. “Asia was sluggish in the first quarter, but bookings were strong throughout the second quarter with China leading the way.”

Speedline’s CEO credited the market’s strong acceptance of the Accela printer and XyflexPro+ dispenser to the company’s leadership in process and applications knowledge.

“The Accela printer already has been accepted on Approved Vendor Lists at many worldwide OEMs and contract manufacturers,” de Villemejane said. “We shipped the first Accela systems in the second quarter and are booking new orders at significant levels. We’re also seeing brisk initial order rates for the XyflexPro+ dispenser. These two products will have a substantial impact on results through the remainder of the year,” he said.

De Villemejane reported that Electrovert wave soldering sales were bolstered by winning major competitive evaluations. “We secured preferred supplier status for these products at many of the top global electronic manufacturing services (EMS) providers,” he said.

The company said sales also were strengthened by the results of a marketing agreement with Tamura FA that introduced Speedline’s popular AccuFlexTM printer into the Japanese market.

Speedline’s CEO predicted Speedline’s strong performance will continue through the end of the year. “We will see seasonal strength in the third quarter when bookings tend to peak,” he said. “But with the lead-free manufacturing trend expanding, and our exciting stream of new products entering the market, we anticipate robust performance through the end of the year.”

Mr Test Equipment Launches Technology Recapture Program (TRP)

Mr Test equipment is pleased to announce the public release of its proprietary “Technology Recapture Program” (TRP).

(PRWEB) August 24, 2021 -- Mr Test equipment is pleased to announce the public release of its proprietary “Technology Recapture Program” (TRP). The Technology Recapture Program is specifically designed to significantly reduce the acquisition cost of electronic test and measurement equipment involved with existing and emerging electronic technologies in North America, Europe and Asia.

Within the last decade, electronic technology corporations have become far more cost and value sensitive when making strategic acquisitions. With the Technology Recapture Program (TRP) from Mr Test Equipment, financial savings and gains create an impressive result that often saves corporations hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Mr Test Equipment has partnered with electronic technology engineering firms in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Ireland, Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (USA) to help minimize the acquisition cost of high value electronic test equipment.

This is of particular interest to corporations developing technologies such as 3G, 3GPP, 4G, ADSL, ANI, ASIC, ATM, BIST, Bluetooth, CATV, CDMA, CDPD, CLEC, CMOS, DFT, DSP, EDA, EDGE, EMS, ESMR, FDDVI, FPGA, F-TDMA, GPRS, GSM, ICs, iDEN, LPFM, LPTV, MAS, MEMS, MMDS, MSS, NANP, PCS, RF, RFID, SCADA, SMR, TDMA, TIREM, VSAT, WCDMA, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, WLL, WSP, WWAN, ZigBee, etc.

Prior to making new, high value acquisitions, engineers and purchasing agents alike, should check with a quality vendor specializing in a Program approach to technology acquisition cost savings. As outlined below in brief, this Program refines new and existing acquisition techniques and strategies.

Mr Test Equipments Technology Recapture Program (TRP) Overview

1. Check with the original manufacturer. Do your homework. Check with the manufacturer and obtain a price and lead time quote from the manufacturer indicating new price, option configuration, warranty and calibration status of the considered equipment. Shop this same requirement to a quality vendor specializing in not-new equipment, like Mr Test Equipment.

2. Quality Check. When considering high quality electronic test and measurement equipment, a quality vendor will always offer a comprehensive parts and labor warranty and calibration certificate (included in the price). Engineers should only ever consider equipment that is sold by a vendor who offers a comprehensive parts and labor warranty and as well, sells the equipment calibrated with a certificate. Buying equipment with a valid calibration certificate, in most cases, will ensure the equipment meets the original manufacturer’s performance specifications. A comprehensive parts and labor warranty, in addition to a valid calibration certificate helps minimize the risk of faulty and out-of-spec performance. Without exception, Mr Test Equipment always sells equipment with such a warranty and with a valid calibration certificate.

3. Delivery Times. It is not uncommon when buying new equipment from the manufacturer that wait times, or leads times for delivery can be weeks or months. This may not meet your R&D; and/or Production schedule. Consider a faster delivery of quality not-new equipment (with a comprehensive parts and labor warranty and calibration). Many times, Mr Test Equipment can ship the same day with overnight express shipping.

4. North America & Europe: International Price Differences. It is not uncommon for a product manufactured in the U.S. to cost 20-30% more in Europe when sold as new. Conversely, European manufactured equipment sold in North America will also come new from the manufacturer with typical import margins and higher import prices. These types of price differences can be minimized through buying through an international broker like Mr Test Equipment. International equipment brokers are best able to minimize international price differences.

5. Online Auctions: Caveat Emptor. Sometimes, interesting deals can be found in an online auction format. However, considering only the auction sale price is not taking into account all risks and pitfalls associated with online auctions. In brief, here are only some of the many issues to consider:

Is the auction seller a scam and/or a rip-off artist specializing in preying on unsuspecting electronics industry professionals?

Has the equipment been stolen by a disgruntled and/or fired layed off employee?

Is the equipment working properly? Does it meet the manufacturer’s original specification?

Is the equipment calibrated? What about warranty?

What about reliable packaging and shipping of the instrument?

What about paying and receiving money risk free?

What happens if payment is sent and nothing arrives? What recourse do I have?

Also remember that the online auction and payment company will typically only offer limited assistance in terms of recouping lost money. Typically, any refund issued by the online auction will only be a fraction of the money lost. There is no additional compensation for lost time, lost credibility and/or compensation for lost time and/or profit due to unreliable acquisitions. Many times, online auctions and payment companies will simply refer you to your local police department to attempt pursuit of justice.

If saving money is a priority, purchase previously owned, reconditioned, calibrated equipment with warranty from only a quality, known and reliable reseller of electronic test equipment whenever possible. It is a significantly lower cost option as compared to buying new. Buying reconditioned equipment is also excellent value as compared to renting.

Mr Test Equipment is an international company, with offices and inventory around the globe, that specializes in international shipping and sales of previously owned electronic test and measurement equipment like oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, network analyzers, signal generators, calibrators… all sold with warranty, valid calibration certificate).

California Consumers Seek Legal Help after CompUSA Repeatedly Fails to Honor Advertised Rebates

An established law firm, marketing through LawyersandSettlements.com, is providing legal case evaluations for those consumers financially affected by CompUSA’s advertised rebate promotions.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 24, 2021 -- Consumers are making numerous allegations that the nationwide electronics retailer, CompUSA, has consistently failed to pay product rebates as promised in their print, radio, TV and in store ads.

CompUSA’s marketing and advertising campaigns announce “free after rebate” and other eye-catching rebate promotions for high-dollar items such as computers and other electronics equipment. These sale-inducing promotions are raising complaints and concerns among consumers who have followed rebate guidelines exactly but have had difficulty retrieving their promised refunds. Consumer’s claim that rebates of up to several hundreds of dollars were never paid despite numerous inquiries and promises by CompUSA representatives to the contrary. Due to the volume of complaints, there may be substantive evidence of a trend whereby CompUSA is engaging in unlawful consumer practices.

Under California law, false advertising is a serious civil offense. It is alleged that CompUSA has violated media advertising regulations and potentially participated in consumer fraud to induce product purchases. Further, if a pattern of failure to honor rebates can be firmly established in a court of law, it may include both civil and criminal implications of the state and Federal RICO statutes.

Other consumer concerns have been raised over CompUSA’s warranty plans, the Technology Assurance Program (TAP) and the failure to uphold written product warranty guidelines.

A Los Angeles law firm is actively investigating these complaints against CompUSA in consideration of a potential legal action. To participate in this process, consumers affected by CompUSA’s rebate or warranty practices can complete a formal complaint form at https://www.lawyersandsettlements.com/case/compusa?ref=compusa_pr

Manfrotto Introduces the New and Improved NeoTec Monopod

Manfrotto, the world’s leading manufacturer of photographic support products, is introducing the new and improved 685B NeoTec Deluxe Monopod with four new features including a safety lever, foot pedal, leg warmer and suction cup foot. From the NeoTec line of Pro Photo Supports, the 685B is built around an innovative self-regulating mechanism inside the leg that delivers unmatched speed, stability and ease-of-use.

Bassano del Grappa, Italia (PRWEB) August 23, 2021 -– Manfrotto, the world’s leading manufacturer of photographic support products, is introducing the new and improved 685B NeoTec Deluxe Monopod with four new features including a safety lever, foot pedal, leg warmer and suction cup foot. From the NeoTec line of Pro Photo Supports, the 685B is built around an innovative self-regulating mechanism inside the leg that delivers unmatched speed, stability and ease-of-use.

This revolutionary new mechanism allows the user to quickly and easily extend each leg to the desired height by simply pulling downwards. There are no locks, knobs or levers of any kind to contend with. Once the leg is extended into position, NeoTec’s patented internal mechanism automatically locks it there by pushing outwards on the tubing, exerting more locking power and further stabilizing the tripod as additional weight is added.

The 685B system features a new safety lever that prevents accidental deployment of the locking release mechanism. To close the monopod, the safety lever must be activated, which then allows the grip action handle to be depressed. The lever is simple to operate while still maintaining the one-handed closing operation.

The updated monopod also features a lightweight rubber foot pedal to make opening or closing the 685B simple, and a protective leg warmer on the bottom leg section to provide protection against the elements and a comfortable grip. Also, the 685B includes a suction cup foot for extra ground support and increased grip.

All these features add up to Manfrotto’s most advanced monopod, while maintaining the extremely powerful NeoTec locking system to withhold a wide range of camera systems, making it the ideal tool for everyone from the extreme sports photographer to the advanced amateur.

Featuring the same opening and closing mechanism of the other tripods in the NeoTec line, the 685B monopod is designed for support with unprecedented speed. The 685B can fully extend to 166 cm / 65 inches and collapse to 71 cm / 28 inches. It has the capability of supporting payloads up to 8 kg / 18 pounds and features the same “upside down” leg construction, further ensuring its durability and reliability in all environments.

Digital Age Products™ Unchains The Music From Your PC Or Mac With Two New Audio Products

Walk-Free™ Wireless Headphones and the Wrap-Around™ 2.1 Notebook Speakers bring great sound and new freedom to music listening.

New York (PRWEB) August 22, 2021 -- Digital Age Products, Inc., an innovative digital products company, is releasing two new audio products that will bring new freedom and sound quality to Windows® and Macintosh® computer users. Both products make listening to music, Podcasts and Internet audio on a computer a more mobile experience.

The first product, the Walk-Free™ Wireless Headphones ($59.95 MSRP), cuts the wire between great-sounding headphones and your desktop or notebook computer. The Walk-Free Wireless Headphones set new standards in price and performance for wireless headphones at the price of traditional wired headphones.

The second product, the Wrap-Around™ 2.1 Notebook Speakers ($59.95 MSRP) brings a new innovative and mobile design to enhance what are usually poor-sounding, built-in speakers in most laptop computers.

The Walk-Free™ Wireless Headphones

Using a proprietary protocol over a 2.4 GHz wireless frequency, the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones let you listen to your favorite music, Podcast and Internet radio in-and-around your home, office or dorm room, untethered and unwired from your computer. The Walk-Free Wireless Headphones transmit the audio from your computer in uncompressed digital audio format for the highest sound quality. And because it uses the 2.4 GHz frequency, you can use the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones up to 30 meters away from your computer. Both digital sound quality and distance are advantages over other wireless headphones that use infrared, FM or other wireless frequencies to transmit audio. In addition, the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones are priced 20-40% lower then other wireless headphones and are competitively priced with traditional wired headphones.

The Walk-Free Wireless Headphones include a tapered, adjustable design with a comfortably padded set of earphones that work off of two “AA” batteries (included). The headphones also include a volume control dial. To transmit the audio from your computer, the unit uses a USB wireless 2.4 GHz radio transmitter with 8 built-in selectable channels. The 8-channel selector gives you the ability to use the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones in spaces where other 2.4 GHz devices are being used (such as wireless phones and wireless network routers). The USB transmitter includes a Blue LED signal indicator that lights up to show power and signal strength. The Walk-Free Wireless Headphones do not need any added software drivers and work with Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 and XP, along with both Mac OS 9 and OS X.

“We think that the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones are the perfect answer for people who love to listen to music on their computer,” said Larry Reich, President of Digital Age Products. “No longer do you have to worry about tangled wires from your headphones, or having to remove them when you need to get up from your chair or desk. They even work while you are outside of your home working or relaxing in your yard. What’s more, they transmit pure, uncompressed digital audio. We believe that targeting these features will make the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones a must have for all computer owners.”

Wrap-Around™ Speakers For Notebook Computers

For people who want better-sounding audio performance from their notebooks, Digital Age Products introduces the Wrap-Around 2.1 Notebook Speakers. The Wrap-Around Notebook Speakers combine performance and innovative design to enhance the weak audio output of many 14” and 15” notebook computers.

The Wrap-Around Notebook Speakers were created to be portable and designed to be one with your laptop, not just a pair of boxes that hang off the side of your computer connected by miles of wire.

The Wrap-Around Notebook Speakers slide on and clip to the back of your laptop’s screen, held tightly with padded grips (a sizing dial adjusts the tightness). Then the foldaway, wing-designed

speakers fan out from the back. When not in use, the speakers swing closed and recede invisibly into the back of the notebook.

Powered by the notebook’s USB port, the Wrap-Around Speakers deliver increased volume that is sharp, crisp and loud enough to fill a conference room, lecture hall or living room. And for extra depth, the Wrap-Around Notebook Speakers come with a small but powerful sub woofer that adds base and resonance (powered separately by its own AC adapter).

“The Wrap-Around Notebook Speakers are easy to carry, easy to connect and easy to use. They enhance any audio situation, from business presentations to listening to your favorite audio or Podcast, to watching your favorite DVD’s,” said Larry Reich. “We think they are the best and most complete notebook sound system for your laptop.”

All Digital Age Products can be purchased at major CE and computer retailers like J&R;, Laptops For Less and other national resellers, as well as the Digital Age Products web site: (http://www.digitalageproducts.com), or call 908-654-5079.

Try the Difference with This FPGA Trainer

A training and development system for Altera Cyclone FPGA devices that includes everything you need to teach, learn or just develop embedded designs with FPGA Devices.

(PRWEB) August 21, 2021 -- FPGA devices are generally considered to be difficult to use and involve learning software languages such as VHDL, which tends to put off electronics engineers. Although you can use a programming language, you can also use a schematic from your favorite PCB package as the design entry. Yes, you say, that’s very good but doesn’t that type of software cost thousands of dollars? And the answer is not any more.

Kanda are now supplying a FPGA training and development kit with everything needed to learn about FPGAs, teach FPGAs or just develop an embedded design. You can start from a schematic or use VHDL, depending on your preferences for hardware or software. Once you enter your VHDL code or schematic into the software, everything else is covered from compilation through synthesis and simulation to programming and running the results on real hardware.

The kit includes example code and tutorials on how to create and fit a design into an Altera Cyclone FPGA, which is probably the lowest cost FPGA on the market. The hardware includes switches, lights and displays, with full schematics to help your own design.

The Altera SignalTap II Logic Analyser forms part of the kit to capture and trace signals in real time as part of the design process. So, with simulation and synthesis plus a built-in logic analyzer, you have everything needed to produce efficient designs. Then try them out on the hardware, or connect extra circuitry to the built-in expansion port. And that is it – you will be able to use low cost FPGAs wherever you want to.

Innovative Staylit Holiday Lights Use New Technology For 'Always On' Effect

Light string's 'silent sentry' microchip allows for worry-free holiday decorating.

Dayton, Ohio (PRWEB) August 21, 2021 -- It's a holiday hazard that has happened to almost everyone at one time or another -- a string of holiday lights lies lifeless because one elusive, mysterious bulb in the strand is defective.


Now a technologically advanced product called Staylit light strings from NOMA/Inliten, LLC are changing that with a strand of lights that burns bright no matter what happens to the bulbs.

The hallmarks of the Staylit line are reliability and safety. Like many other holiday lights, an individual bulb on the Staylit strand may burn out from time to time, but the rest of the string will remain lit. What sets them apart is that inside every light socket is a tiny microchip that acts as a "silent sentry" to keep the overall light string operating. When all the bulbs in the string are operating properly, the chip isn't engaged. However, as soon as one bulb in the strand goes out, the chip fires to life to keep the power flowing and the rest of the string operating properly. The chip even acts as an internal surge protector within the strand to protect the bulbs from irregular electrical pulses caused by other bulbs in the string that may burn out.

"Staylit light strings allow you to spend holiday time with your family, not looking for the bad bulb that's keeping a light string from operating," says Staylit inventor John L. Janning.

The patented Staylit technology even helps make the lights shine brighter than a regular light string, allowing for a more festive holiday display. As a matter of fact, the 38 trees that have lined Rockefeller Plaza in New York City in past years have each been wrapped with two thousand Staylit bulbs. A beautiful twinkling effect can be accomplished by inserting several flashing type bulbs in a Staylit string. When a flashing bulb is placed in the socket of an ordinary light string, the entire string flashes on and off. When placed in a Staylit light string, the individual bulb flashes on and off in a random manner. Several flasher bulbs placed in a string generate a pleasing twinkle effect.

NOMA/Inliten, LLC also offers Staylit Pre-Lighted artificial trees that come with the twinkling effect already built in. The sturdy trees range in size from 4' -25' and allow for effortless set-up and breakdown.

The Staylit product line is sold in the U.S. and Canada at many major retail stores nationwide including Target and BJ's Wholesale. The 100-light strings stretch almost 40 feet and retail for around $7.99. The lighted trees sell for $100 and up depending on tree height.

New Technologically-Advanced Speakers Bring Unique Sound Quality Into 'Focus'

Focused Sound speakers already making an impact at venues nationwide. http://www.dakotaaudio.com

Bismarck, N.D. (PRWEB) August 19, 2021 -- New technologically-advanced speakers are bringing unique sound quality into 'focus.'

It's a product that has already shown its prowess at venues like the Country Music Hall of Fame, select national museums and even the Mayo Clinic. Now Dakota Audio is aiming to bring its innovative speaker technology to many other venues worldwide.

Focused Sound is a compact product from Dakota Audio that controls sound in a unique manner so listeners can experience high quality sound directed to a specific area without being distracted by large, obtrusive speakers.

How Does Focused Sound Work?: http://www.dakotaaudio.com/howItWorks.shtml
Multiple small, high-quality loudspeakers comprise Focused Sound, which provides excellent sound quality and control in thin, almost inconspicuous packages. Patent-pending technology allows Dakota Audio to design arrays for specific situations and provide coverage patterns not available with other technologies.

"The combination of thin, unobtrusive looks, low distortion and excellent frequency response is unsurpassed in the field of directed audio," says Lynn Mader, inventor and developer of Focused Sound.

Dakota Audio mounts the multiple loudspeakers on a flat surface, eliminating the sonic coloration of domes. By strictly controlling the "launch" time of the sound from each loudspeaker, all speakers act together in concert at the target location. This control, known as correlation, allows Focused Sound to deliver well-controlled sound dispersion, adjustability and coverage patterns that are not physically possible with a dome.
http://www.dakotaaudio.com/whatIsItAnyWay.shtml

Typical focused arrays give a reduction in volume of more than 20 decibels as a listener steps from the sound's "target zone" to the untargeted area just a few feet away. By varying the design of the array and the timing of the speakers, different patterns and focal lengths may be obtained. The thin (3 inches "thick") arrays are much less conspicuous than a "flying saucer convention" of dome speakers. The 36-inch square arrays can be customized to almost any shape or size.

Normally, the arrays are mounted overhead using thin aircraft cables. However, Focused Sound also can be mounted under grates in the floor, either under directly under the listener, or offset several feet from the listener (with the sound projected at an angle).

"We welcome side-by-side comparisons with any other technology for controlling sound," says Mader. In fact, that's exactly how Dakota Audio proved itself and landed its biggest clients, including the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tenn.; the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.; the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia; the Stax Museum of American Soul Music in Memphis, Tenn.; and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

Dakota Audio can customize Focused Sound to meet indoor and outdoor acoustical needs. Information about the product is available online: http://www.dakotaaudio.com or by calling (800) 428-3461.

Microwavable Chips for Wireless Communication

A recent EU project designed and developed a new demonstrator microchip that will dramatically cut the cost of producing new wireless products and could mean that a whole range of existing products will be enabled for wireless communication.

(PRWEB) August 19, 2021 -- The IMPACT project included industry heavyweights Ericsson and Philips who worked together to develop a new CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) chip that can transmit and receive microwave signals in the 5–24 GHz frequency range. The team developed a range of demonstrators, including amplifiers, oscillators, mixers, and frequency multipliers.

The IMPACT team sought to discover whether analogue and radio frequency (RF) circuits could be developed for the emerging 90nm CMOS chips. These chips use a much smaller (90nm) circuit etching process than current models.

"The 90 nm digital CMOS chips are becoming available this year and we wanted to know if we could use them for high-frequency microwave communications," says Dr Stefaan Decoutere, IMPACT project coordinator and researcher at IMEC in Belgium.

Older RF-CMOS chips are already used in 2.4Ghz devices like the Bluetooth transmitters and receivers developed separately by Ericsson, one of the project partners. Currently these applications require expensive, multi-chip solutions.

IMPACT found that the 90nm CMOS chips can meet the stringent specification standards for mid-range and high-end applications like GSM and Point-to-Point microwave communications. Ultimately it will cut costs, reduce power consumption and increase the functionality of these devices.

"These chips are expensive to develop but over time they are much cheaper to produce," says Decoutere. Because all the circuits are on one chip the production process is much more efficient and RF-CMOS chips can be produced in large volumes, slashing costs.

CMOS chips are an important type of integrated circuits. They include microprocessors, microcontrollers, static RAM, and other digital circuits. These different functions can be integrated on a single chip, further reducing costs and the complexity of devices like digital cameras. CMOS chips only use power when its transistors are switching between on and off states. As a result, they use less electricity and generate less heat than rival chips, which means they are ideal for mobile applications.

The IMPACT team scored two successes. Firstly, they achieved a given performance specification at significantly lower cost and power consumption than can be managed with today’s technologies. Secondly, they pushed the state-of-the-art circuit performance in RF-CMOS technology with demonstrator low-noise amplifiers and voltage-controlled oscillators with world-record figures-of-merit in performance and robustness against Electrostatic Discharge.

The project won the enthusiastic support of the industrial partners. Applications for the 90nm CMOS technology are already in the works. For example, Ericsson's target applications over the next three years include WLAN systems, like WiFi, and terminals in the 5 to 6 GHz frequency range.

Project partner Philips says that the use of mainstream CMOS technology as a cost-effective solution for wireless communication is a particularly important emerging market with a huge range of potential product applications. Philips believes this technology will become an enabler for wireless consumer electronics and that virtually all-electronic products may become wireless so as to enable device-to-device interaction. This not only includes high-end and luxury products, as are available now, but also but also low-end products such as Walkmans and MP3 players.

But these devices are heavily dependent on the timely integration of RF and analogue functionality into advanced CMOS technology to yield cost-effective system-on-a-chip solutions. IMPACT has gone a long way to solving these problems.

In the meantime, IMPACT wants to launch a follow-up project to see if it is possible to develop CMOS chips using a 45nm etching process. Advantages in a 45nm CMOS chip could include smaller chip size, the potential for improved performance, and lower power consumption for the same functionality, if the researchers can get it to work.

Digital Age Products7™ Unchains The Music From Your PC Or Mac With Two New Audio Products

Walk-Free™ Wireless Headphones & The Wrap-Around™ 2.1 Notebook Speakers Bring Great Sound and New Freedom to Music Listening.

New York (PRWEB) August 19, 2021 -- Digital Age Products, Inc., an innovative digital products company, is releasing two new audio products that will bring new freedom and sound quality to Windows® and Macintosh® computer users. Both products make listening to music, Podcasts and Internet audio on a computer a more mobile experience.

The first product, the Walk-Free™ Wireless Headphones ($59.95 MSRP), cuts the wire between great-sounding headphones and your desktop or notebook computer. The Walk-Free Wireless Headphones set new standards in price and performance for wireless headphones at the price of traditional wired headphones.

The second product, the Wrap-Around™ 2.1 Notebook Speakers ($59.95 MSRP) brings a new innovative and mobile design to enhance what are usually poor-sounding, built-in speakers in most laptop computers.

The Walk-Free™ Wireless Headphones
Using a proprietary protocol over a 2.4 GHz wireless frequency, the Walk-Free Wireless

Headphones let you listen to your favorite music, Podcast and Internet radio in-and-around your home, office or dorm room, untethered and unwired from your computer. The Walk-Free Wireless Headphones transmit the audio from your computer in uncompressed digital audio format for the highest sound quality. And because it uses the 2.4 GHz frequency, you can use the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones up to 30 meters away from your computer. Both digital sound quality and distance are advantages over other wireless headphones that use infrared, FM or other wireless frequencies to transmit audio. In addition, the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones are priced 20-40% lower then other wireless headphones and are competitively priced with traditional wired headphones.

The Walk-Free Wireless Headphones include a tapered, adjustable design with a comfortably padded set of earphones that work off of two “AA” batteries (included). The headphones also include a volume control dial. To transmit the audio from your computer, the unit uses a USB wireless 2.4 GHz radio transmitter with 8 built-in selectable channels. The 8-channel selector gives you the ability to use the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones in spaces where other 2.4 GHz devices are being used (such as wireless phones and wireless network routers). The USB transmitter includes a Blue LED signal indicator that lights up to show power and signal strength. The Walk-Free Wireless Headphones do not need any added software drivers and work with Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 and XP, along with both Mac OS 9 and OS X.

“We think that the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones are the perfect answer for people who love to listen to music on their computer.” said Larry Reich, President of Digital Age Products. “No longer do you have to worry about tangled wires from your headphones, or having to remove them when you need to get up from your chair or desk. They even work while you are outside of your home working or relaxing in your yard. What’s more, they transmit pure, uncompressed digital audio. We believe that targeting these features will make the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones a must have for all computer owners.”

Wrap-Around™ Speakers For Notebook Computers

For people who want better-sounding audio performance from their notebooks, Digital Age Products introduces the Wrap-Around 2.1 Notebook Speakers. The Wrap-Around Notebook Speakers combine performance and innovative design to enhance the weak audio output of many 14” and 15” notebook computers.

The Wrap-Around Notebook Speakers were created to be portable and designed to be one with your laptop, not just a pair of boxes that hang off the side of your computer connected by miles of wire.

The Wrap-Around Notebook Speakers slide on and clip to the back of your laptop’s screen, held tightly with padded grips (a sizing dial adjusts the tightness). Then the foldaway, wing-designed

speakers fan out from the back. When not in use, the speakers swing closed and recede invisibly into the back of the notebook.

Powered by the notebook’s USB port, the Wrap-Around Speakers deliver increased volume that is sharp, crisp and loud enough to fill a conference room, lecture hall or living room. And for extra depth, the Wrap-Around Notebook Speakers come with a small but powerful sub woofer that adds base and resonance (powered separately by its own AC adapter).

“The Wrap-Around Notebook Speakers are easy to carry, easy to connect and easy to use. They enhance any audio situation, from business presentations to listening to your favorite audio or Podcast, to watching your favorite DVD’s,” said Larry Reich. “We think they are the best and most complete notebook sound system for your laptop.”

SchmartBoard To Launch New “Open Source” Circuit Design Program

SchmartBoard, a company that develops products for prototyping electronic circuits, announced today a new program called the SchmartDeveloper Program. The program will allow people from around the world to design and post, circuit schematics for popular circuit blocks for use in the SchmartBoard prototyping platform.

Fremont, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2021 -- The SchmartBoard prototyping platform is the first to advocate building individual circuit blocks and then connecting these blocks together to form the final circuit. What makes this possible is that SchmartBoards are physically connectable to each other. The advantage of prototyping in this manner is the ability to test individual circuit blocks such as power, memory, processor blocks, etc. to assure correct functionality in each block before connecting them all together. This makes trouble-shooting much easier.

The SchmartDeveloper program will allow individuals from around the world to design these circuit block schematics for users of the SchmartBoard system to download and use. The schematics will also have a bill of materials including the correct SchmartBoards to use. SchmartDevelopers receive free SchmartBoards to verify their circuits, and a home page that includes any information that the SchmartDeveloper would like to list. As an early-bird bonus, those who sign up before September 19th will receive a SchmartBoard t-shirt upon completion of their first schematic.

According to Neal Greenberg, SchmartBoards VP Sales & Marketing, “We already have people from the US, Canada, Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, South Africa, India, Germany, UK, Poland and New Zealand who are sending in applications. The free program is in a Beta version currently, but open to anyone. Future enhancements will include tools for SchmartDevelopers’ to better collaborate and communicate with each other." Information can be found at www.schmartboard.com

About SchmartBoard
SchmartBoardM is committed to helping engineers, students, and hobbyists develop electronic circuits faster, easier, and less expensively than previously possible. At Schmartboard, our three-word mission statement is “Electronics for Everyone”. More information is available at http://www.schmartboard.com.

Purr Detector Cat Collar Glows When Cat Purrs

A California company has developed a cat collar that glows whenever the cat purrs. The collar can also flash for improved safety and visibility when the cat is outside at night.

(PRWEB) August 12, 2021 -- A California company has developed a cat collar that glows whenever the cat purrs.

The Sound Guy, Inc., of Seaside, California, has developed the Purr Detector lighted cat collar. In addition to providing family fun, the Purr Detector can also flash when the cat is outside at night, for improved safety and visibility.

The Purr Detector was created by Earl Vickers, who has a patent pending for the technology. A flyer is online at http://www.sfxmachine.com/misc/purr_detect.pdf .

"Kids love the Purr Detector," says Vickers, "and cats love the extra attention. In addition, the nighttime flashing feature protects cats by making them more visible to cars."

Inter-Vehicle Communications May Save Lives

Emerging wireless technologies for vehicle-to-vehicle communication promise to dramatically reduce fatal roadway accidents by providing early warnings to motorists. As well as improving road safety, such technologies will also help optimise traffic flow and enable drivers to take greater control of their vehicles.

(PRWEB) August 12, 2021 -- This is the broad vision behind the EU-funded project CarTALK 2000. The project developed cooperative driver assistance systems and a self-organizing ad-hoc radio network with the aim of preparing a future standard. Dr Christian Maihöfer of DaimlerChrysler and coordinator of CarTALK 2000 believes that such technology will have a vital role to play in saving lives in the future.

“If we want to achieve the goal of improved road safety and significantly reduce the number of road fatalities, local sensors alone will not be able to fully achieve this goal. Therefore the idea is for sensor information and information about maneuvers to be transmitted from one car to other cars in the vicinity. This allow early reactions like braking if some vehicles in front have had to use emergency braking and helps to prevent rear end collisions,” he says.

The data exchange between vehicles is made possible by ad-hoc networks. These short-distance connections are spontaneously created between the vehicles as the need arises and can organize themselves without the help of any external infrastructure.

Other scenarios where such technology might be useful are if a vehicle encounters a critical situation such as congestion, fog, ice or an accident. It can pass the relevant information on to all affected road users in the immediate vicinity of the danger spot. Traffic approaching from further away is given ample warning and can respond to the situation.

In this spontaneous information network, each vehicle can take on the role of a sender, receiver or router, allowing a chain of information to be built up that is capable of covering a substantial distance.

There are also clear benefits for traffic flow as well, explains Maihöfer. “The system allows cooperative maneuvers like lane merging or highway entering, where some vehicles – and not necessarily the entering vehicle, perhaps vehicles already driving on the highway – have to be slowed down or accelerated in order to allow for smooth traffic flow. This also prevents accidents and increases comfort,” he says.

Maihöfer acknowledges that making the transition from successful concept to fully commercial application is not likely to be a straightforward process.

“There are a few main obstacles to be overcome,” he explains. “The first customers, for instance, will not derive any benefit from the system because it depends on other systems in the vicinity to be viable. The benefit comes only after a significant penetration is achieved, somewhere around 10 per cent of all cars equipped with the technology. This makes it difficult to introduce such a system,” he said.

Another formidable obstacle to be overcome is the need for standardization and agreement among all European Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) on adopting and implementing one common system, a task that will inevitably delay the introduction of such technology. This is currently addressed in the car-to-car communication consortium (C2C-CC). And finally, there are complex and costly legal issues to be addressed, explains Maihöfer.

“The current legal framework will make it difficult for OEMs to introduce such technology because even if the system saves lives in total, the liability for individual system failure must be settled,” he says.

So, will the technology developed by CarTALK 2000 find its way into cars in the near future? Maihöfer believes such a question misses the real point of the project, which was to advance the cause of inter-vehicle communications as a potential boon for road safety.

“From the project partners there are no immediate public product plans for the system investigated in CarTALK 2000 because this was very visionary research which could not come into commercial production before 2010. However, we know that several OEMs and suppliers are continuing their research and some have started pre-development activities,” he says.

Despite missing immediate product plans, however, Maihöfer is confident that CarTALK 2000’s technology will resurface in some shape or form in the near future.

“As a definitive result we can say that the technologies and some spin-offs of these technologies considered in CarTALK 2000 will soon be seen in vehicles, even if at the beginning they are not used for safety applications. CarTalk itself has ended but there are other research projects such as Prevent and Safespot where we carry on the most important ideas of CarTalk but with more focus on short-term realization and production probability,” he ends.

PayKiosks Internet Terminals Opens International Office

PayKiosks Internet Terminals, Inc., one of North America’s leading suppliers of public access Internet terminals and wireless hotspots, has opened the doors on its first overseas office just outside of Tokyo.

(PRWEB) August 10, 2021 -- PayKiosks Internet Terminals is rapidly expanding their network of Wi-Fi enabled public access Internet terminals throughout North America via an innovative distributorship program. These terminals offer high-speed Internet access to customers for a small fee payable by cash or credit card. In addition, each terminal creates a wireless (Wi-Fi) hotspot that can be accessed by customers with wirelessly enabled laptops or PDA’s. For Scott McInnes, President of PayKiosks Internet Terminals, the decision to expand internationally was an easy one. “For the past several years we’ve conducted a significant amount of business overseas without having a dedicated international office. The international demand for our Wi-Fi Internet terminals has grown steadily over the past year and it’s now at the point where it makes sense to have an office dedicated to servicing these markets.”

For Todd Lowrey, PayKiosks International Business Development Manager, the decision to run the overseas office was an easy one. “When you consider the huge opportunity that many of these untouched markets offer our distributors it’s really quite amazing. No other company is in a position to offer what PayKiosks is bring to the table.”

The demand for wireless Internet access has exploded over the past couple of years and PayKiosks allows entrepreneurial individuals the opportunity to profit from this new technology. “Where it once was optional, nearly every laptop that is currently manufactured is Wi-Fi enabled. Huge companies such as Intel, Microsoft and T-Mobile have invested billions into this technology. Our products allow our distributors to own and profit from managing their own network of wireless Internet terminals” said Scott McInnes, President of PayKiosks Internet Terminals.

Because not everyone travels with a wirelessly enabled laptop or PDA, customers can access the Internet or email right from the terminal. In addition the terminal has the ability to display multimedia advertising content as well allowing customers to play games, and send video/picture postcards. “We are constantly exploring new avenues to increase the ROI for our distributors. As we introduce new revenue streams into this business model our older units incorporate these features through our Live Software Update,” said Scott McInnes.

PayKiosks Internet Terminals provides a complete turnkey package for entrepreneurs interested in building a network of Wi-Fi Internet terminals. For more information on PayKiosks please visit www.paykiosks.net

MediaMerge inks deal with Chicago Museum of Science and Industry

Media systems integrator, MediaMerge has entered into a multi-year agreement to provide technical support for the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry’s IMAX Dome Theater in Chicago, IL.

Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) August 10, 2021 -- Media systems integrator, MediaMerge, announced Monday, Aug. 8, 2005, that it has entered into a multi-year agreement to provide technical support for the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry's IMAX Dome Theater in Chicago, IL.

MediaMerge, in cooperation with the IMAX Corporation, will be responsible for providing preventative maintenance and technical support for the theater's world-class sound and projection systems.

Under the agreement MediaMerge provides a technician to meet the requirements of the IMAX Service Partnership Program. In this arrangement the theater operates as usual, and MediaMerge provides 24-hour phone support, preventative maintenance and emergency service visits. The theater still has a service agreement directly with IMAX, while MediaMerge provides the labor at a significant savings. IMAX provides all replacement parts, phone support and limited on-site service.

The Museum of Science and Industry has played host to more than 160 million guests since it opened in 1933. It has been voted one of the Top 12 destinations nationally by Family Fun Magazine, and it was also hailed as one of the best museums in the world by Life Magazine. MediaMerge is excited about its new partnership with the museum.

“We are pleased to add the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry to our list of IMAX theater clients. MediaMerge is continuing to expand its commitment to providing quality service at a significant savings to the IMAX theater network,” said Doug Jackson of MediaMerge, Vice-President of Technical Services.

The Museum of Science and Industry marks the ninth theater signed by MediaMerge to-date. It is the fifth IMAX dome theater signed by the company. With this newest deal announced, MediaMerge has strengthened its position as the largest third-party IMAX servicing agent in the world.

Tim Ogletree and Ken McKibben founded MediaMerge Inc., in February 2001. Their purpose for starting the company was to provide design, installation, service and support for audio, video, control, acoustics and theatrical lighting systems. The two met while working at Birmingham-based Sonics Associates where Ogletree worked as a system designer and McKibben worked as a service technician for North America.

The company's customer base consists primarily of houses of worship and other facilities utilizing media systems to deliver high-impact audio and visual presentations. Since its inception, MediaMerge has grown at a steady pace and currently has a client list that includes churches in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia.

HandHeld Entertainment Brings Portable, Digital Media Players to Masses by Dropping the ZVUE MSRP 1/3 to $99.95

SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) August 10, 2021 -- HandHeld Entertainment today announced that it’s dropping the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of its ZVUE™ portable media player to $99.95, from the earlier MSRP of $149.95 as it expands distribution to more than 1,000 retail locations throughout the United States.

“Our mission from the beginning has been to bring mobile media to the mass market,” said Jeff Oscodar, president and chief executive officer of HandHeld Entertainment. “I’m thrilled that we can provide the market with a great media player that plays music, displays pictures and plays video at this breakthrough price. Now we can all enjoy digital media on the go. Enjoying quality music, videos and photos on-the-go is something that everybody should be able to do, not just those who can afford $400 for a portable media player that can’t even play video.”

Since its introduction to the mass market, the ZVUE has become a favorite of media enthusiasts because it gives them the ability to take their favorite video, audio and digital picture content on the go. Users can put their own media on the ZVUE, or they can download music and video at the ZVUE Web site http://www.zvue.com/downloads/. The site has many free videos, films and music available for download. About the size of a pack of playing cards, the highly portable ZVUE plays full-color videos and MP3 music that can be taken anywhere, anytime.

“The ZVUE’s new $99.95 MSRP is breakthrough pricing for the portable media player market as most of them cost more than $250 and don’t have access to any kind of video content that is readily playable,” Oscodar said. “Our ZVUE download site, breakthrough $99.95 pricing, and the availability of the ZVUE in over 1,000 retail locations across the country, make the ZVUE easy to use, easy to afford and easy to find. Customers can check the ZVUE web site for retail locations.”

In addition to being available for sale in more than 1,000 retail locations nationwide, the ZVUE is also available through many online sources, including www.zvue.com.

Seeking Success With a Digital Camera? It’s All in the Lighting

Digital photography tips from award winning photographer, Robert Sanders

(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 9, 2021 -- Lighting is most often the one piece of photographic equipment that can either make or break a shot. You can have a perfect subject, stunning background, top-of-the-line camera, and with erroneous lighting, the king of Photoshop may not be able to fix your work. Award-winning commercial and fine-arts digital photographer, Robert R. Sanders, has been shooting with a digital camera since 1995 and using digital exclusively since 1998. “My greatest focus is always about creating the shot, not just getting the shot or taking the picture that is in the camera; I'd rather take the one that is in my mind,” says Sanders, featured this month in an in depth interview about photographic equipment and lighting.

“Lighting is the primary concentration in my professional obsession at the moment,” Sanders says. “I am trying to document and develop a greater understanding of using tools and methods to achieve extremely gratifying results.

“I can only say you really have to do your homework and then you will see why a system is everything you need and WANT it to be,” he says. “ My budget was an extremely strong factor as it is with so many photographers. But cheaper is NOT a solution, nor a good direction to pursue. When you understand - back to homework - how the lighting power-pack works you will understand why cheap is wasted money. The Hensel Porty was my answer to an affordable quality dilemma.”

Photographers spend thousands and thousands of dollars on photographic equipment like digital cameras, extra bodies, a multitude of lenses, cases for cameras and filters, yet they often leave the lighting for last. But the lighting is the crucial factor in photography.

“I didn't realize the creative utility of having remote portable lighting on location that is equivalent to what I use inside the studio,” says Sanders. “The Hensel Porty has all the power and flexibility of the higher strobe output. It was extremely cool to not have to worry about sync cords or generators.”

Each month Samy’s Camera offers photographic tips from professional photographers along a wealth of information about how to choose a digital camera, all the latest photographic equipment including accessories, lighting and computer components to ensure you have everything you need to capture those special images.

MobileDataforce® Launches Intercue Publisher 2.0, Enabling Companies to Easily Update Mobile Employees with Electronic Forms

Intercue Publisher ensures consistency across the enterprise by allowing companies to track those who have, and have not, installed the latest updates.

Meridian, Idaho (PRWEB via MobilityNewswire) August 9, 2021 -- MobileDataforce®, the leading provider of rapid application development solutions for mobile environments (RADS-ME), announces the release of Intercue Publisher v. 2.0 to enable companies to automatically distribute new and revised electronic forms on Windows Mobile Pocket PC, Palm OS, and Tablet PC devices, plus Windows XP laptop and desktop computers.

Companies that use handheld devices to collect data in the field experience a common problem: ensuring that a new or revised form is received and used by all employees. If employees are using different variations of the same work order, for instance, or do not have a new work order installed on their handhelds, numerous technical or administrative problems could result. Intercue Publisher solves this problem by automatically publishing all new and edited forms to all subscribed users and creates reports that offer details on the employees who have successfully received and installed the most recent updates.

Intercue Publisher enables companies to target specific devices that have been deployed across the enterprise for each update. With every form that is published, companies have control over which workstations and which mobile devices associated with those workstations will receive the new form.

“We developed Intercue Publisher to help manage the distribution of large numbers of electronic forms to mobile field workers with handheld computers,” says Kevin Benedict, CEO of MobileDataforce. “When you have remote users, many different electronic forms, and different versions of these forms, it is important to have an application like Intercue Publisher to bring order to this process.”

About MobileDataforce

MobileDataforce is a global leader in the development of high performance software solutions for use on mobile handheld computers. Privately held, MobileDataforce was founded in 2000 and its software solutions are sold worldwide through direct and Value Added Reseller (VAR) channels.

Sandpiper Expands 2006 Grants to Include New Equipment

Sandpiper Technologies has expanded its grant/rental fleet to include new wireless, digital and fuel cell technology.

(PRWEB) August 9, 2021 -- Sandpiper Technologies has expanded its grant/rental fleet to include new wireless, digital and fuel cell technology.

The new Sandpiper tools for wildlife research include:
* Sentinel Fuel Cell Remote Power System provides greater access to remote locations.
* Sentinel ELF 24 Digital Video Recorder replaces old analog recorders
* Wireless TreeTop Peeper Telescoping Video Inspection System replaces cabled units
* Peeper Burrow Video Probe includes longer video probe extensions

STI replaced all of the analog video recorders in the rental/grant fleet with new, lightweight ELF DVRs. Previous Sentinel Systems weighed 30 pounds and required a 70-pound battery. The new Sentinel ELF weighs 28 pounds, and includes the battery needed to run the system. Two DVR units are included in the grant, one for field use and the other for lab viewing. The image files download directly into a PC or Macintosh computer, eliminating the need for storage cassettes or tapes. The ELF color/IR camera captures color images during daylight conditions and monochrome at night.

Sandpiper introduced the Sentinel Fuel Cell Remote Power System earlier this year and has added several units to its grant fleet. The 50 watt methanol fuel cell makes research in remote areas more accessible by replacing heavy lead acid batteries with a system that can be placed in a backpack. The new fuel cell reduces the environmental impact of battery disposal. When incorporated with the Sentinel ELF 24 Digital Video Recorder the fuel cell can operate for more than two weeks without requiring additional fuel. The system can also be used to charge 12 volt equipment such as laptops and cell phones.

Sandpiper has upgraded all of its cabled TreeTops to the new wireless configuration. This tangle-free telescoping nest inpection system transmits color images from the camera at the top of the 50-foot pole to the LCD monitor located at the pole’s base.

The Peeper Video Burrow Probes now has a greater variety of gooseneck video extensions, including a 7 meter probe for exploring gopher tortoises borrows.

Sandpiper Technologies, Inc. (STI) loans its rental fleet of video research equipment to approximately 15 biology students each field season. The company has offered single-season grants since 1988 to further the educational goals of students studying wildlife biology and ecology.

The application deadline for the STI Equipment Grant Program 2006 field season is December 1, 2005.

Application requirements, equipment list and grant criteria are posted on the web site at: www.sandpipertech.com.

Early Show & Best Magazine Test Aquapac Waterproof Cases

High tech has gone waterproof. And to demonstrate ways that you can waterproof your electronic gear without breaking the bank, Best Magazine reviewed Aquapac Waterproof Cases on the CBS Early Show.

(PRWEB) August 8, 2021 -- On the CBS Early Show, senior editor of Best Magazine, David Gregg demonstrated Aquapac cases’ ability to keep tech-gear 100% dry in and around the water this summer. Gregg submerged both a waterproof cell phone case and a waterproof ipod case in tubs of water to prove there are alternative ways to protect high-tech equipment -- and Aquapac cases topped the list. You can even listen to your tunes while your iPod is inside the case with the Swimman waterproof headphones.

Aquapac provides airtight, waterproof casing for cell phones, mp3 players, video cameras, point & shoot and digital cameras, gps, pdas and just about any portable device you want to take out in the elements. In the past, consumers would have to buy new tech-gear that was manufactured to be waterproof, which often added hundreds of dollars to the cost of the equipment. Or, consumers could play it safe and keep the cameras and cell phones at home away from the water. Today, people can safely and easily operate their tech-toys anywhere when the equipment is protected by Aquapac’s amazing technology. Just slip the digital or video camera into its Aquapac case and take sharp, beautiful pictures at the beach with no worries about sand, salt or water damage. A great way to get a waterproof digital camera at a fraction of the cost. Cell phones, mp3 players and the like are also protected securely within their fitted Aquapac cases.

During the Early Show segment, Gregg also explained the difference between water resistant and waterproof. When something is water-resistant, it is protected only if it is exposed to moisture or a few drops of water. Better than that, Aquapac’s waterproof cases protect your equipment even when they are totally submerged. All tech-gear is completely secure from water and moisture in Aquapac’s airtight, waterproof casing.

In pursuit of electronic mobility, CS Ideas has offered a complete line of Aquapac cases that protect tech-gadgets and toys since 2001. The company is a member of the Better Business Bureau and is well known for its outstanding, personalized customer service. Cases can be purchased on their waterproof cases website.

CS ideas specializes in marketing niche products through their network of websites. Other products that tech-savvy customers enjoy are waterproof mp3 player from Waterproof Music as well as personalized gifts for all gift giving occasions at A Perfect Wallet.

The New Tech Gadget Everyone Is Talking About, Archos AV420

One portable device (virtually) does it all, recording and playing back all kinds of media, not just music. Read on for the low down on the Archos AV420.

(PRWEB) August 6, 2021 -- The Archos AV420 has got rave reviews from gadget magazines around the world, so what's all the hype about.

Well I was skeptical at first but after playing with this gadget for about an hour I knew it was something special. Recording your favorite TV show (In my case “Frasier”) is just a matter of hooking it up to your TV then pressing ONE button (quite intuitively, the record button) and away it goes! You'll be able to watch your TV show wherever you want. Amazingly simple technology!

The Archos AV420 boosts some great features:

• 20 Gigabytes Of Space
• MPEG-4 SP with ADPCM stereo sound, near SVCD quality (optimised resolution for standard TV through composite video line-in) with up to 512x384 @ 30 f/s, in AVI format (If that means anything to you?)
• up to 12 hours for music or 4 hours for video on built-in LCD. Higher capacity models (up to 100 GB): up to 16 hours for music or 4.5 hours for video on built-in LCD
• Dimensions: 20 GB model: approx. 125 x 78 x 20 mm (4.9" x 3.1" x 0.8")
Higher capacity models (up to 100 GB): approx. 125 x 78 x 26 mm
(4.9" x 3.1" x 1").
• For more information check out http://www.archos-av420.com

Videos already on your PC must first be converted to MPEG-4 format; a conversion utility is included. Unprotected video (such as TV shows or home movies) can be recorded on the fly. Recording time depends on quality, but you should be able to fit at least 20 hours of video.

The Archos definitely here to stay & gets my thumbs up. If you want to be an early adopter of a capable portable media player, the Archos AV420 won't disappoint you. You can check it out at http://www.archos-av420.com

Vishay Siliconix LDO Regulators Combine Low 130-mV Dropout with High 150-mA Current in Small SC-70 Package

The extremely small 2 mm by 2 mm footprint makes these new LDOs well-suited for use in battery-powered equipment such as cell phones, PDAs, pagers, digital cameras, MP3 players, cable and DSL modems, and other noise-sensitive electronics.

MALVERN, Pa. (PRWEB) August 5, 2021 -- Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced two new 150-mA low-noise low-dropout (LDO) regulators with the highest available current density in the small five-pin SC-70 package. Their extremely small 2 mm by 2 mm footprint makes them well-suited for use in battery-powered equipment such as cell phones, PDAs, pagers, digital cameras, MP3 players, cable and DSL modems, and other noise-sensitive electronics.

Under a 150-mA load condition, the SiP21101 and SiP21102 feature an extraordinarily low dropout of 130 mV and a ground current of 110 microamps, helping to prolong battery life in low-voltage portable electronic systems. Designed to maintain regulation while delivering 300-mA peak current, the new ICs both feature a fast start-up time of 50 microseconds, making them an excellent choice for systems that have a high surge current upon turn-on. Fifteen fixed output voltage options ranging from 1.2 V to 5.0 V are available.

The SiP21101 can be used as a pin-for-pin replacement, with significantly improved current handling, for the MAX8510 and MIC5253.

An active pull-down circuit is built into the devices to clamp the output voltage when it rises beyond normal regulation, discharging it automatically by connecting the output to ground through a 100-ohm n-channel MOSFET when the device is put in shutdown mode. This provides better transient response and regulation. Reverse battery protection limits the reverse current flow to approximately 1 microamp to prevent damage to the IC in the event that a reversed battery is applied at the input. Short circuit and thermal protection are also built in.

The SiP21101 provides an extremely quiet voltage source because of an external noise bypass capacitor connected to its BP pin that reduces noise to only 30 microvolts, a significant benefit for RF applications. The same pin on the SiP21102, which has a noise output of 75 microvolts, functions as an error flag output that goes low when the output voltage drops 4% below its normal voltage.

The SiP21101 and SiP21102 use low-cost ceramic capacitors or tantalum capacitors, giving designers a flexible choice of magnetic components.

Samples and production quantities are available now for most voltage options, with lead times of 6 to 8 weeks for larger orders. Pricing is $0.40 each in 1,000-piece quantities.

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

Winegard Company Granted Patent for its Best Selling Off-Air Antenna, the SquareShooter™

These outdoor high-band VHF/UHF Digital/Analog/HDTV antenna systems satisfy the huge need to capture reflected broadcast signals and deliver free quality DTV/HDTV off-air signals.

Burlington, Iowa (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) August 3, 2021 -- Winegard Company announced today that the U.S. Patent Office has just released the Patent for Winegard's SquareShooter outdoor antenna platforms. The Winegard Company, holder of 60 U.S. Patents over the years, now has number 61. “Covering both the SquareShooter™ SS-1000 passive and SS-2000 amplified series of digital Antenna Platforms, the new Patent is an important step in protecting these new products and technologies,” said Bob Howell, Director Signal Distribution /Off-Air Antenna Business Group for the Winegard Company. The right off-air DTV/HDTV antenna is now a necessity, not an accessory. Getting the best off-air picture starts with the choice of the best antenna for today's digital reception challenges.

The single largest contributing factor to successful digital antenna installation and DTV/HDTV reception still remains the ability of the metropolitan/suburban consumer to buy an antenna that deals with multi-path or reflected signal. This was a huge issue and significant challenge for digital antenna manufactures and professional installers, until the introduction of the SquareShooter Series. These antenna platforms were specifically designed for digital reception with the ability to mitigate digital Multipath. Multipath is the term for reflected or bouncing signals, resulting in several different signals from the same broadcast channel reaching an antenna, out-of-phase with each other or at differing time intervals.

The metropolitan/suburban market is the largest segment of the HDTV market and the primary markets for the SquareShooter, where line-of-sight to the transmit source may be blocked and the only broadcast signal available is received from a bounced or reflected signal, such as off a building.

The SquareShooter SS-1000, selected as an Honoree in the 2004 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase, was followed by the introduction of the SS-2000, a more powerful version, equipped with Winegard's new digital preamp, extending the range up to 40 or 50 miles away from the transmit source. With the addition of the new digital preamp, the SquareShooter SS-2000 now delivers even more reception power, extending its reception capabilities to the suburban market.

Although only 16 inches square, The SquareShooter Series was specifically designed to defeat Multipath. It receives and resonates VHF and UHF transmissions from reflected broadcast signals by allowing the antenna to be pointed at another reflective source to capture the reflected signals and still be able to resonate quality DTV/HDTV signals. “The SquareShooter Series is the only digital antenna platforms on the market today that are specifically designed to accomplish this and has become our best selling outdoor antenna platforms. This is a true testament to the need and acceptance of these very unique and innovative new antenna platform designs,” said Howell.

By far, the increase in off-air antenna sales in the last two years has been generated by the growth of the DTV industry. No matter how the transition from Analog to Digital broadcasting unfolds, there's still going to be 30 or 40 million TV sets out there using an Off-Air antenna, because antennas are required to receive Off-Air DTV and free HDTV signals from local over-the-air broadcasters.

Howell continued, “Today, the trend in home HDTV antennas revolves around new technology in smaller packages with aesthetic, sexy designs, that are user friendly, easy to install, designed for outdoor use, compatible with set top boxes, can be mounted practically anywhere and, most importantly, solve this Multipath issue. Winegard's SquareShooters meet all these criteria.”

In keeping with the demand of today's customer for both satellite and local off-air free HDTV signals, for new installations and/or retrofits, the best news for satellite installers is that these new smaller SquareShooter antennas can be piggybacked, with the right mounting hardware, on existing or new satellite installations and in some cases diplexed onto the existing cable, saving the time and expense of another cable run.

If you'd like more information about this topic, link to the SquareShooter flash file with specs, pictures, video and text testimonials on field testing and more or link to a backgrounder on the SquareShooter.

Working closely with Scientific Atlanta and Telewest, Product Ventures achieved an aesthetically pleasing European design sensibility through contemporary form and sexy curves, giving the brand a premium image.

The “display worthy” Explorer PVR complements other electronic devices and is a welcome addition to the media console. The cleverly and intuitively positioned function buttons eliminate clutter. A combination of anodized silver and glossy black finishes makes an elegant visual and tactile statement. When in use, the subtle hint of colored light on the front panel is just enough to alert what function is in use without creating a distraction. The light pipes placed above and below the right cluster buttons provide further visual interest via a subtle asymmetry in an otherwise symmetrically planned design. Quality materials and construction further contribute to the fascia's upscale look and feel.

Easy-to-Use, Elegant, Playful, Sexy, Desirable… That's Some Remote
Next, the design team focused on improving the customers' interaction with the remote control. In terms of impact on customer satisfaction, the importance of the remote control cannot be understated. Each time the customer uses the remote to access the television service, it's an opportunity to build the consumer+brand relationship. Form and function play a critical role in ensuring a satisfying, intuitive and hassle-free experience.

Key attributes of the remote control's design were comfort, logic, as well as elegance. The result is a beautiful, easy to use and “all in one” unit. Telewest's hierarchy of consumer needs and Product Ventures' ergonomic research drove the remote's functionality layout, while its overall aesthetic design follows the same contemporary 3D brand language established by the Explorer PVR.

The remote's superior ergonomics create a snug, comfortable fit in the palm of the hand. To ensure the proper weight and balance, the design team precisely calibrated the remote's load and center of gravity. Ergonomically and intuitively superior, the remote is designed so that the user's fingers fall perfectly over the navigational buttons, set in the center of the remote. Much attention was paid to the logical mapping of user buttons, as 99% of customers will use the remote unaided. To measure usability, the designers blindfolded themselves to test the intuitiveness. The symmetrical design means both left- and right-handed users can use the remote easily.

Javier Verdura led the Product Ventures design team, which also included Jon Lee and Peter Michaelian.

MobileDataforce® Launches PointSync® 2.0, Enabling Rapid Creation & Deployment of Mobile Applications

PointSync offers an enterprise-class system for using handheld computers in field data collection and wireless database queries.

Meridian, Idaho (PRWEB via MobilityNewswire) August 2, 2021 -- MobileDataforce®, the leading provider of rapid application development solutions for mobile environments (RADS-ME), announced today the launch of PointSync® 2.0, a complete system for building and deploying advanced applications on mobile devices. With PointSync, organizations with or without in-house programmers can quickly and easily create customized mobile forms software for field data collection and database queries.

PointSync provides enterprises, government agencies and integrators the ability to rapidly develop and deploy mobility projects of all kinds. It is designed for use in a range of industries, such as environmental engineering, utilities, facilities management, field service, logistics, heavy construction and inventory control.

"Datavision has software solutions that meet the unique needs of Irrigation and Water Utility Districts," says Bill Christiansen, CEO of Datavision. "A vital component of our solution is the mobile handheld application used by field Ditch Riders to monitor and change water flows per customer requirements, and to report important field conditions. We selected MobileDataforce’s PointSync because of its extensive feature set, rapid application development environment, flexibility and cost effectiveness."

PointSync makes it faster and more affordable to go from concept to deployment regardless of the user's programming skills. While advanced application logic capabilities are available, PointSync enables anyone -- regardless of technical knowledge -- to rapidly build high-performance mobile applications with full two-way database synchronization from the mobile handheld computer to the enterprise.

Not only is PointSync useful in creating and deploying mobile applications, but it also makes data collection and synchronization more efficient for field employees entering data on Windows Mobile handheld devices. Users can manually enter text or numbers in form fields, scan barcodes, or perform thorough record searches and database queries.

While other mobile application toolkits may facilitate the development of a component of the total system needed for collecting data in the field and synchronizing it with the enterprise database, PointSync is a complete, flexible solution for transferring data to and from the field. It is also priced affordably; enabling organizations of all sizes to equip mobile workers with powerful handheld data collection tools while eliminating the need to re-enter data collected on a paper form into the computer when they return to the office.

"PointSync allows companies to rapidly develop and publish mobile handheld computer applications that connect to their enterprise databases," says Kevin Benedict, CEO of MobileDataforce. "This system enables mobile workers to access the same databases and information as colleagues in the office. The ability to collect data and access information via handheld computers while in the field, provides a level of efficiency unavailable until now."

About MobileDataforce
MobileDataforce is a global leader in the development of high performance software solutions for use on mobile handheld computers. Privately held, MobileDataforce was founded in 2000 and its software solutions are sold worldwide through direct and Value Added Reseller (VAR) channels.

CY Digital Simplifies the Flat-Screen Home Theater Shopping Experience

CY Digital is now offering home theater buyers a simpler way to buy a new flat-screen TV and surround system by bundling everything required into individually designed packages.

BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) August 1, 2021 – CY Digital has announced today that it plans to offer home theater shoppers a bit of relief when it comes to picking out a new system. Typically, consumers might head over to Best Buy or a local electronics store, maybe even look online for TVs, but CY Digital has simplified this experience. Consumers usually do not know which products are high quality, let alone how much to pay for them.

Buying from CY Digital requires no technical analysis of TV specifications, various inputs, speakers, receivers, and cables. Christopher Yeomans and Yumin Choi set up CY Digital after graduating from Babson College. Putting their business degrees to work they realized an opportunity in the home theater market after going through the tedious process of purchasing a home theater. In an industry filled with slick salespeople and hundreds of TVs and sound systems to choose from, Choi and Yeomans have successfully brought simplicity to the process of buying a home theater.

Having researched all the latest technology, Choi and Yeomans put together a range of professional quality systems at 20-30% below list price.

Yeomans said, “We do offer great value, but that’s not really what we’re going after. We’re here to make the process of buying a home theater as simple as pointing to a package and saying ‘I want that one’ and giving the consumer everything they need in the process.”

The packages are creatively named, including a Baby-Step Package and a Celebrity Package, with prices ranging from $2,999 to $13,999. Just in time for the upcoming season is the Football Special Package, which in addition to a plasma TV and surround sound system, also includes DirecTV set-up and a high definition TiVo for pausing, replaying, and saving games.

All of the packages use the Panasonic professional TVs, known for their outstanding contrast ratio and life span of 60,000 hours (that’s 20 years of viewing TV 8 hours per day). These plasma TVs range in size from 37” to 65” and are included in all of the CY Digital packages.

The sound system is from Orb Audio, a company that is making a name for itself among audiophiles for its compact designs which outshine Bose and other cube speakers. A 400 watt subwoofer produces bass that is described by one editor as having “fit an atom bomb into a 12’ x 12’ x 12’ cabinet.” A Yamaha receiver is also included and provides 540 watts of power to the orb speakers which can be wall mounted or put on stands. As a last addition to the high quality components, all packages come with Monster Cables, delivering outstanding signal transfer to individual components.

CY Digital has accomplished what many consumers have been looking for: a simple way to buy a new home theater system. CY Digital also offers a more customized shopping experience with an in-home consultation for buyers who are still not sure what package to purchase.

Bomar's New SMB Interface for Board-To-Board Applicaions

Bomar Interconnect Products Inc., a premier manufacturer and designer of quality connectors and accessories for RF, video and broadcast transmission, announced the addition of a SMB interconnect to their proprietary Eliminator(TM) Series.

Ledgewood, NJ (PRWEB) July 30, 2021 -- Announced today by Bomar Interconnect Products Inc., a premier manufacturer and designer of quality connectors and accessories for RF, video and broadcast transmission, is the addition of a SMB interconnect to their proprietary Eliminator(TM) Series. The coaxial Series, which already consists of a family of F connectors, is expressly engineered to eliminate the need for extra cable assemblies and PCB connectors traditionally required to mate box-type, or modular integrated components to boards. Manufacturers need only connect an Eliminator directly to an electronic device, and drop it onto the PCB. In addition to significantly reducing installation time, the subminiature SMB Eliminator promotes board space conservation along with circuit miniaturization. The interconnect is available in 50- and 75-ohm impedance, and provides broadband performance with extremely low reflection DC through 4 GHz.

Bomar’s newest right-angle interface is ideally suited for employment in multi-board applications in which digital to RF conversion is required. As such, it may be confidently specified for use on PCBs in a broad range of military, industrial, consumer, and medical equipment.

Quality engineered of precision machined brass, the new SMB Eliminator features TFE insulators, and gold-plated contacts to ensure continuous reliability. Additional features include an insulation resistance of 1,000 mOhms min., a dielectric withstand voltage of 1,000 VRMS, and a temperature range of –65 degrees C to +165 degrees C. The Series is fully customizable to accommodate various PCB thickness, plating options, and board-to-board spacing. A die-cast version is also offered for high-quantity, low-cost applications.

Pricing for Bomar’s SMB Eliminator starts at $1.38 each in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is from stock to 12 weeks.
