Diversinet Launches Mobisecure Suite of Mobile Tokens and Two-Factor Authentication Services

MobiSecure offers mobile, Internet and security solution providers cost-effective, mass-market strong authentication solutions to protect individuals, companies and enterprises against identity theft, transaction fraud and smorphing

Toronto, ON (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 21, 2022 -- Diversinet Corp. (OTCBB: DVNTF), a leading provider of mobile device security and authentication solutions for the mobile data ecosystem, has launched its MobiSecure suite of mobile tokens and MobiSecure Authentication Service Center designed to protect individuals, companies and enterprises from security threats such as identity theft, online fraud and identity misrepresentation – better known as smorphing.

Diversinet provides a suite of mobile tokens to support mobile, Internet and security provider business needs for cost-effective, mass-market strong authentication solutions. MobiSecure Tokens eliminate the need for consumer and enterprise users to carry additional hard tokens, USB toggles or smart cards with smart card readers for two-factor authentication.

“With more than one billion people around the world already carrying mobile phones, why would they want to carry an additional hard token when they could use their existing phone for two-factor authentication?” says Nagy Moustafa, CEO of Diversinet. “By integrating all authentication tokens within existing mobile phones, everyone in the value-chain saves on costs and enjoys added convenience for all of their identity needs.”

Diversinet has developed a variety of mobile tokens targeted at different user communities with different needs:

- MobiSecure Token: Strong authentication tokens for mass-market online access applications.
- MobiSecure Multi-Token: Activate a variety of online access mobile tokens with the MobiSecure Multi-Token. Add and manage all the mobile tokens needed for all enterprise and consumer strong authentication accounts.
- MobiSecure SMS Token: The MobiSecure SMS Token was developed to provide mass-market authentication tokens through all SMS-based mobile phones operating on all mobile networks as authenticators for online access.
- MobiSecure Browser Plug-In Token: This token is ideal for mobile VPN access and Content Control authentication services. This mobile token activates and supports strong authentication service requests when launching a mobile browser application.
- MobiSecure API Token: Build secure applications to control, restrict and manage access of content and services based on authenticated user profiles with the MobiSecure API Token, the only mobile token for Age Verification and Content Control applications.

All MobiSecure strong authentication tokens are developed with standards-based tools running as an OATH-compliant One-Time-Password (OTP) application on mobile phones with internetworked services provided by the Diversinet MobiSecure Authentication Service Center (MASC). Diversinet mobile tokens are seamlessly managed and supported for credential registration, Over-The-Air (OTA) activation, provisioning and validation services by Diversinet's MASC. With MASC, Diversinet delivers the industry’s first open mobile security service to support OATH-compliant OTP strong authentication on all mobile phones and networks globally. MASC provides all the essential managed services for companies wanting to simplify the development, deployment and delivery of mass-market strong authentication services.

“Diversinet has developed a product for more consumer-based two-factor applications by allowing each and every mobile phone to become a mobile token for mass-market strong authentication solutions,” said Joe Greene, Vice President, IT Security Research for IDC Canada. “In a complex marketplace, products developed with open authentication techniques and mobile industry standards can help promote consumer confidence in conducting online transactions.”

IDC predicts the identity and access management market to grow to more than US$3.5 billion by 2009 from its $2.21 billion market sizing in 2003. Spending on identity and access management technology will be spread across a variety of authentication technologies; including authentication solutions encompassing a variety of tokens such as hard tokens, USB authentication tokens and software licensing authentication tokens. As these fragments are pulled together under one umbrella, IDC predicts authentication will be strengthened by requiring two, three or more factors to assert identity in which multiple passwords and logins associated with different networks and applications are replaced by one-time password authentication solutions.

“Online and mobile networks are the prime targets for transaction fraud, identity theft and smorphing. The exponential growth of malicious attacks is driving the explicit need for companies to protect their customers now or potentially lose them forever,” adds Kashif Hassan, President of Diversinet. “Diversinet’s MobiSecure suite of mobile tokens and MobiSecure Authentication Service Center enables companies to provide all customers with mobile phones with strong authentication tokens for online and mobile application access effectively, efficiently and economically.”

As a leading mobile authentication service provider, Diversinet provides its customers with cost effective, mobile-optimized strong authentication products and services that reduce identity theft and improve brand trust by leveraging more than 1.5 billion consumer and enterprise mobile phones as strong authentication tokens. Diversinet MobiSecure suite of mobile tokens and MASC offerings are available on all intelligent mobile device platforms, including Microsoft, RIM, Symbian, Palm and Java-based phones.

Kodak Tops the List of Digital Camera Brands Preferred by Women

A new Lyra survey examines the photo-printing behavior of U.S.-based digital photographers. Lyra’s Digital Photography Advisory Service is an online competitive research service for marketing and product managers in the digital camera, photo-quality printer, and online photo-service industry.

Newtonville, MA (PRWEB) April 20, 2022 -- According to Lyra Research’s 2004 U.S. Digital Photography Survey, more than 20 percent of women surveyed use a Kodak digital camera, while only 10 percent of men made Kodak their brand of choice. Men appear to prefer Canon digital cameras, with almost 17 percent of male respondents using that brand.

“The explanation is that women in general are less comfortable with technology and therefore are more attracted to trusted brands,” says Charles LeCompte, president of Lyra and director of Lyra’s Digital Photography Advisory Service. “ And the biggest brand in photography is, of course, Kodak.”

The primary goal of the survey was to examine the photo-printing behavior of a representative sample of U.S.-based digital photographers. The survey also asked users about many other issues, including their photo-taking, photo-storage, and photo-sharing habits and their use of camera phones. Further gender differences identified include that women own less equipment in general than men, do less with the equipment they own, and prefer products that are technologically the simplest. Perhaps most interestingly, women prefer printing direct from their camera or direct from a docking station. At least some of these differences can be attributed to the busy lives that many women lead—many juggle child and family care with taking care of their homes, running home businesses, and/or working full-time jobs for others, all of which limits their time to explore and adopt more complex technologies.

This information can be found in Lyra’s Digital Photography Advisory Service, an online competitive research service for marketing and product managers in the digital camera, photo-quality printer, and online photo-service industry. Lyra recently announced that a new team headed by Lyra President Charles LeCompte will manage all content and client support for the service, including industry trend analyses, primary market research, and product forecasts for digital camera, photo-printing, and online photo-service markets. Steve Hoffenberg and Larry Jamieson, senior analysts and experts on digital cameras and photo printers, respectively, advise and contribute to the service’s direction and content. Suzanne Boozer, a research analyst for Lyra, contributes written analysis to the service. More information on the Digital Photography Advisory Service can be found at www.lyra.com.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 20, 2022 -- Signametrics introduced its newest 7 ½ digit PXI/cPCI Digital Multimeters, offering advance functionality and fastest measurement speeds. Signametrics’ engineering leveraged newly available technologies to implement new advanced triggering capabilities, superior measurement speeds, and exceptional accuracies, surpassing any existing product in this class.

The SMX2064 boasts high measurement rates up to 20,000 reading/second and low DC current measurement ranges down to 50pA. With true 7-1/2 digit accuracies, new advanced scope-like triggering, and extended DC and resistance measurement ranges. The two new PXI DMMs are aimed at satisfying the needs of advanced test systems in diverse applications such as: Avionics, Automotive, Semiconductors, Storage, Industrial, components and sensor manufacturing, chemical manufacturing, food engineering, and others.

The SMX2064
Like its PCI predecessor, the SMX2064 is a full-featured 7-1/2 digit PXI/cPCI DMM. It boasts 24,000,000 counts dynamic range, translating to resolutions of 10nV, and a wide workload due to its extensive measurement functionality. The SMX2064 offers the most advanced functionality in plug-in DMMs: 6-wire Guarded resistance, inductance and capacitance measurements (LCR), Frequency and timing measurements, thermocouple and RTD measurements, and V & I sourcing. In addition, the SMX2064 sports new scope-like advanced triggering, extended DC current and resistance measurement ranges, and accurate Leakage measurement with programmable DC source.

“The large number of current sources designed into the SMX2064 provide the widest range and highest resolution of any plug-in DMM, making it the only plug-in Ohm-meter measuring from micro-ohms to Giga-ohms.” says Tee Sheffer, president of Signametrics Corporation. “Our SMX2064 and SMX2060 bring about a new standard in accuracy, speed, and functionality to plug-in Test and Measurement systems, that is unparalleled even by costly bench-top and VXI digital multimeters”.

The SMX2060
The SMX2060, 7-1/2 digit DMM, provides the same high accuracy as the SMX2064 at a very lower price. The SMX2060 shares the SM2064’s 24,000,000 count based measurement, and features 1,400 reading per second measurement speed. The SXM2060 functionality includes 4-wire Ohms, frequency, and temperature measurements.

Touch and Feel; software support
The SMX2064 and the SMX2060 have the same “touch and feel” of bench-top digital multimeters. They are compatible with the existing Signametrics line of PXI and PCI DMM families, facilitating painless upgrade. All Signametrics DMMs are accompanied by “front panel” software, DLLs for all Windows applications, and Linux drivers.

A Family of Test and Measurement Plug-in Cards
Preserving the accuracy of the SMX2064 and SMX2060 DMMs in a multiple signal system requires high-quality switching modules. Signametrics’ switching modules for the PXI/cPCI, are natural complements to the new SMX2064 and SMX2060 with their high isolation, and extremely low noise and thermal EMF. The combination of the high-accuracy SMX2064/60 with fully isolated extremely low noise SMX4032 Switching modules make up the foundation for high precision Test and Measurement systems.

Price and Availability
Readily available, the SMX2064 is priced at $2,395, and the SMX2060 is priced at $1,595.

About Signametrics
Signametrics pioneered the plug-in Digital Multimeter category, and keeps on leading in this market with advanced features, and ever increasing accuracy. Signametrics’ current products are dedicated to PCI, PXI, and VXI Test and Measurement systems, and are complemented by “Front-panel” software, DLLs, and Drivers to ensure smooth software installation and integration.

Ambient Devices Launches Wireless DataCasting Kit

Ambient and Microsoft lead the trend to display glanceable information.

CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- Ambient Devices today announced the launch of the DataCasting Kit, radically simplifying the ability for consumer products companies to embed Internet information in their products. The DataCasting Kit, about the size of a matchbox, may be embedded into virtually any product enabling it to receive wireless signals from the nationwide Ambient Information Network.

Innovative companies, including home appliance manufacturers, furniture makers or even apparel designers will use the wireless Internet DataCasting Kit to launch products that display various types of online information, such as weather forecasts, stock trends, traffic congestion or health information.

“Ambient’s differentiators include coverage and costs,” said Alan A. Reiter, president of Wireless Internet & Mobile Computing consulting. “The Ambient Information Network represents one of the largest, if not the largest, datacasting networks in the United States. The large number of transmitters in Ambient’s mature wireless network typically provides better coverage and in-building penetration than an FM subcarrier network like Microsoft MSN Direct.”

David Rose, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Ambient Devices, says, “The DataCasting Kit is a quantum leap forward for manufacturers to quickly and affordably embed Internet information in a new product, be it a clock radio, MP3 player, refrigerator, car, or clothing. Over the course of 2005 and 2006, dozens of companies will be using the DataCasting Kit to prototype and launch new products.”

Distinguished Engineer Dick Berry, IBM User Engineering, said glanceable technology offers an intriguing way to integrate information into the user's physical environment. “Initial setup and ongoing configuration will have to be extremely simple — as easy as setting the time on a clock. It will be interesting to watch the adoption rate of these devices over the coming months.”

A beta version of the DataCasting Kit was used by a large white goods manufacturer to rapidly prototype an Internet connected kitchen appliance. “Within three days the product was receiving and displaying data from the Ambient Information Network.” says Ben Resner, Co-Founder and VP of Technology at Ambient.

The Ambient DataCasting Kit is now available. Please go to www.ambientdevices.com for more information.

Datacasting: A backgrounder

What is Datacasting?
Today, many consumer electronics manufacturers and major retailers want to deliver products which seamlessly use data from the Internet to offer enhanced functionality and services. The big question is: How will clock radios, watches, refrigerators and mobile devices receive Internet data?

The answer is datacasting. Think of it like a radio signal for many of the devices in your life. The data is already there, your devices just tune in.

Who are the major players in the datacasting space?
There are two companies today that are the most active in providing datacasting products and services: Ambient Devices and Microsoft Corporation through MSN Direct.

Ambient Devices, founded in 2001 as a spin-out from MIT’s renowned Media Lab, has pioneered the market for ‘glanceable’ devices – products which convey important information at-a-glance. Ambient Devices enables the physical environment to become an interface to digital information. Ambient has created a platform for developing these applications, as well as producing their own line of ambient products.

In May 2002, the company launched the best-selling Ambient Orb, named in the NY Times Magazines "Year in Ideas." Today the Ambient Orb, and Ambient Devices’ four other products are available in over 50 retailers including Neiman Marcus, the Museum of Modern Art, Amazon and Brookstone stores. This past holiday season, Radioshack Corp. debuted the Ambient powered Wireless Weather Forecaster, a $99 weather station that displays 5-day weather forecasts directly from Accuweather.com.

All Ambient products are bundled with wireless service for no monthly charge. Additional personalized channels are available for a small monthly fee.

Microsoft’s first product to use Datacasting was the SPOT smart wristwatch, announced in January 2003 and launched with licensing partners Fossil and Suunto in January 2004.. These watches deliver Internet data feeds similar to those offered by Ambient Devices – all on your wrist. The Smart Watch requires a service fee of approximately $10 per month.

Ambient and Microsoft are both pioneering what the research community calls “ubiquitous computing.” Ubiquitous computing is the global trend towards a lifestyle where the machine to machine delivery of important information is seamless and easily available -- requiring no keyboard, mouse, or computer screen. Instead, Internet data will be available to at-a-glance, from dozens of simple, everyday devices.

What infrastructure is used for Datacasting?
Both Ambient and Microsoft see a vast market for embedding Internet information in everyday objects, including wrist-watches, lamps, cars and clothing. Yet the technologies used by each company differ in important ways. The most important difference is the mechanism for sending data around the country.

Ambient leverages satellites and a frequency-aligned network of over 2000 pager transmitters redundantly broadcasting a wealth of data from the Internet. Each device on the Ambient network can receive signal from more than one tower, reducing dead spots and allowing the network to cover over 90% of the US population.

While standard paging technology carries some transmission costs, the company has overcome this issue through a proprietary micro-packetization algorithm (patent pending) which eliminates monthly service fees for broadcast data.

Microsoft uses FM radio subcarriers, which can listen to a single FM radio station antennae at a time. While Ambient’s datacasting network can listen to multiple towers overlapping to improve wireless coverage, the MSN Direct network must rely on existing FM radio station antennas in non-overlapping capacity. FM stations aren’t able to construct additional transmitters for the sole purpose of improving their data broadcasting coverage.

About Ambient Devices
Ambient Devices is radically changing how people receive information in their daily lives. Ambient extends the reach of digital information to a new category of wireless products using light, meters, and motion to communicate at a glance. Using technologies developed at the MIT Media Lab combined with principles of cognitive psychology, everyday products tune into a nationwide wireless network to keep you in touch with the information that matters to you most.

Electric Pocket Updates Ringo, Ringtone Manager for Treo Smartphones, and Announces New "Vocal" Caller ID

Electric Pocket's Ringo application, the best selling ringtone manager for palmOne's Treo-brand smartphones, has been updated with new features that allow users to more quickly identify incoming callers and customize their user experience with high-resolution icons that leverage the vibrant screens of Treo 650 smartphones.

Wye Valley, UK (PRWEB via MobilityNewswire) March 22, 2022 -- Electric Pocket’s Ringo application, the best selling ringtone manager for palmOne's Treo-brand smartphones, has been updated with new features that allow users to more quickly identify incoming callers and customize their user experience with high-resolution icons that leverage the vibrant screens of Treo 650 smartphones. Further, the company announces EPSpeak, an add-on to Ringo that identifies incoming callers with a voice that verbally announces the caller’s name.

Since its inception, Ringo has enabled users to associate a picture or assign a ringtone to a caller or group of callers within the smartphone's Address Book. In response to requests from Ringo users, the newest version of Ringo allows users to add pictures for all incoming callers (regardless of whether or not the caller is listed in the Address Book).

Another new feature of Ringo permits its "Friends" function to use multiple phone numbers for each contact. Since most contacts in an Address Book have multiple phone numbers (work, home and mobile), this new feature makes it quicker to assign ringtones and pictures to a caller by not having to repeat the process for each phone number.

For those who want to be the "coolest" Treo user on the block, Electric Pocket’s new vocal caller ID is an essential Ringo add-on. For only US$9.95, Ringo users can identify incoming calls with a voice announcing the name of the caller, coupled with a personalized ringtone and on-screen graphic. Ringo’s voice feature gives Treo users the opportunity to be among the first to have such a vocal ID feature, regardless of the type of mobile phone being used.

"Ringo was the first Treo ringtone manager to associate pictures with callers, the first to enable users to assign favorite MP3 tunes to friends and family, and now the first to verbally identify callers by name," said Iain Barclay, Electric Pocket’s Chief Product Officer. "We enjoy being first out of the block with new smartphone products because that means our customers can be first to 'wow' their friends with features they won’t find anywhere else."

About Ringo
Ringo enables Treo smartphone users to establish customized ringtones or MP3 tunes and assign photographs to specific callers or caller groups. When the Treo user receives a new call, the incoming caller can be identified both by a customized ringtone and a picture or other icon. Ringtones can be installed from an SD card, purchased and downloaded "over the air" via a link to a dedicated online ringtone store, or composed with Ringo’s innovative Ringtone Mixer. Ringo is available from Electric Pocket’s web site at http://electricpocket.com for US$29.95.

About Electric Pocket Limited
Electric Pocket is a privately held company offering leading-edge mobile and wireless computing solutions and services from its base in Wye Valley, UK. The company’s product portfolio includes a rich set of wireless messaging solutions, mobile commerce and configuration toolkits. Electric Pocket’s consulting group has provided solutions to global companies such as Ericsson, PalmOne and Vodafone. For more information, visit www.electricpocket.com

Kirkland, WA (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Things don’t always work out as planned.

Once Zan Oliphant, founder of Seattle area garage startup Zanware, realized he couldn’t find investors to mass-produce his company’s in-wall TCP/IP PC controller, he decided to open up the entire product for the education and hobbyist market.

“Investors want to make money, but engineers like me want to make cool things – we just didn’t see eye-to-eye on that,” said Oliphant. “When a prominent local businessman asked me what real-world problem our generic TCP controller solved, I didn’t have an answer for him – it’s generic right? It can solve many problems,” added Oliphant.

Sitting on about ten thousand dollars worth of parts, and thousands of engineering hours in hardware, software, and firmware design, Oliphant decided to open the entire project to the public through SourceForge, and Zanware’s company web site.

“Since the initial product never got out of the prototype stage, it works great for an educational kit – that’s because the parts are easily soldered together by hand. We spent many weeks documenting the assembly process – you can check that out our on our web site, there are over 100 pictures, and more than 50 pages of text."

"Plus, we’ve open sourced all 10K lines of our firmware, and 30K lines of our server software – you can even download full schematics, board layouts, bill of materials, and datasheets – talk about geeking out!” explained Oliphant.

These shelf-top controller kits receive user input from an optical encoder with attached knob, an infrared receiver with included remote control, a temperature sensor, and a light sensor. Input is immediately packaged and sent to the PC server for processing. For output, or information for the user, the controller provides a 128 by 64 pixel graphical LCD, status LED, and small beeper.

“Think of these controllers as terminals to your personal computer. Through TCP/IP, the controller talks to server software running on your PC. Our server software, through the use of XML, provides a powerful menu system that lets you control a variety of local media, Internet based media, home automation, and other such tasks,” explained Oliphant.

Through the use of XML and Jscript modules, the Zanware server software allows users to easily add and change features.

Currently shipping with the product is support for Internet Radio, Internet TV, Media Player, Internet Explorer for web browsing, digital pictures, Power Point presentations, HomeSeer home automation, RSS feeds, and animated GIFs.

The server software leverages the power of Microsoft Windows Graphic Device Interface (GDI), and builds each LCD screen first in a small 128 by 64 pixel window. Once the screen is built, it’s shipped out to the network for display on the controller’s LCD. This all happens within milliseconds.

About Zanware
Zanware was founded in September of 2003 to create a line of products that provide a low cost, generic, and simple interface to remotely located computers.

Westec InterActive Selects the Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone for Enhanced Audio in Retail and Restaurant Audio/Video Surveillance and Operations Audit

Westec InterActive, the leader in interactive remote security monitoring for convenience store, retail, restaurant and other business applications, selected Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker™ array microphone to be used for enhanced audio for audio/video monitoring. Enhanced audio is especially important for Operational Audits, enabling clear reception of conversations between employees and customers.

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Westec InterActive, the leader in interactive remote security monitoring for convenience store, retail, restaurant and other business applications, today announced that it has selected Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker™ array microphone to be used for enhanced audio in retail and restaurant audio/video surveillance applications. The decision was made after it was tested in several Circle K, 7-Eleven and McDonalds sites that have Westec interactive security systems.

“Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker array microphones proved to be very effective in recording conversations in settings where there is a lot of background noise, such as convenience stores,” said Michael J. Upp, Vice President, Business Development for Westec InterActive. "The Voice Tracker™ reduced the background noise from air conditioners, fans, and other equipment, improving the sound quality of recordings at the stores."

The Voice Tracker’s unique technology locates the region where the conversation is coming from and electronically steers a “listening beam”, like an acoustic searchlight, in that direction. This creates spatial filtering, and “noise” from other parts of the room is not picked up.

“The ‘listening beam’ allows our Operational Audit Specialists to clearly hear conversations between employees and customers. This helps monitor customer service levels and accurately report findings back to our customers,” says Upp.

Acording to Acoustic Magic, its Voice Tracker™ microphones are effective in reducing background noise by utilizing both spatial filtering and digital noise reduction. They also have improved sensitivity by constructively adding the outputs of the 8 individual microphone elements in the array.

“Westec InterActive was the first company to recognize the potential of the Voice Tracker as a surveillance microphone in convenience stores,” said Bob Feingold, CEO of Acoustic Magic. “We’re pleased to have our technology used by Westec, the leader in remote access security.”

About Westec InterActive"
Westec InterActive, the pioneer of interactive security and remote monitoring, delivers an integrated solution that answers the concern of employee safety, as well as key business operational issues such as shrink, employee turnover and inventory control.

Billy Graham Training Center Cove Chapel Utilizes SLS International's Ribbon Technology

Religious Organizations Continue to Embrace Company's Cutting-Edge Sound Systems

Springfield, MO (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- SLS International (OTCBB: SITI) announced today that B & R Audio has selected and installed multiple SLS speakers as part of the audio system renovation at the 170-seat Billy Graham Training Center, The Cove's Chapel.

"The chapel is a very simplistic and beautiful room," says Bruce Jensen, audio engineer and owner of B & R Audio. "Part of the design included keeping the speakers completely out of sight. The units had to be something small with good pattern control, high-end and very flat response. We chose the SLS speakers because they have all this and more."

"We continue to win a substantial amount of business from churches and other religious organizations," said Jeff Lowry, SLS International's Direct of Marketing. "The flexibility provided by our speakers, along with the sound quality, makes them ideal for virtually any religious venue. We expect to penetrate further this large market."

The Cove's Chapel construction consists of hardwood floors, sheetrock and glass walls, and a sheetrock ceiling with a very high A-frame, so control was very critical. In addition to the chapel's acoustical challenges, Jensen also had to keep in mind that many of the musicians and presenters would be on the main platform in front of the speakers, which would cause significant feedback.

"The SLS speakers give us good coverage all the way to the back of the room, without bouncing off a significant portion of the back wall," commented Jensen. "We didn't use any acoustical treatments at all and the speakers still give off such a smooth, accurate sound. The detail of the SLS speakers is substantially better than any other traditional speaker."

After the installation was complete, the first group to use the new audio system was a children's choir that performed for a Billy Graham Training Center staff event.

"The SLS speakers performed wonderfully during our first event and continue to sound fantastic throughout each event," said Jarred Brackett, chief audio/lighting technician at the Billy Graham Training Center. "The room has such a tall ceiling, so the reverb time is fairly high, close to three seconds. The SLS speakers are great for this room because of their tight coverage patterns."

Easycamcorders.Com Provides an Easy Guide to Camcorder Reviews

Ratings and advice about camcorders transform clueless shoppers into tech savvy owners.

Boston, MA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 9, 2022 -- EasyCamcorders.com, a new online consumer electronics guide with camcorder reviews, ratings and advice, was launched today to help novices navigate the world of buying and using camcorders.

As the name implies, EasyCamcorders.com makes it as easy as possible for consumers to access the best buying and usage advice for camcorders available on the Internet. Unlike many technology sites, which can seem busy, dry and overwhelming to the first-time user, EasyCamcorders.com is recognizable for its crisp, clean, colorful graphics and concise camcorder reviews illustrated with helpful tables and images.

"EasyCamcorders.com grew out of the feedback we obtained from some of the quarter million consumers who rely on the guidance of CamcorderInfo.com each month," says Robin Liss, Internet entrepreneur and founder of EasyCamcorders.com. "Inspired by user’s comments, we realized the need for a different kind of site and designed one for less experienced shoppers who were looking for quality research presented in a simplified manner."

The information on EasyCamcorders.com reflects the direction that the camcorder industry is taking as manufacturers increasingly add ease-of-use features to their products and seek to attract the 'point and shoot' consumer. The site’s reviews are designed to appeal to this new, wider buying audience and are written in a straightforward, no-holds-barred style by unbiased reviewers who are not afraid to take
a stand in their ratings, unapologetically separating the quality camcorders from the bottom of the barrel. Each EasyCamcorders.com review is backed by the same thorough research and analysis that is performed for a CamcorderInfo.com review.

Ideal for experienced consumers, CamcorderInfo.com, the predecessor of EasyCamcorders.com, is the Web’s largest, most comprehensive publication for camcorder reviews and articles on video production and camcorder use. Yahoo! Internet Life named CamcorderInfo.com one of the "50 Most Incredibly Useful Sites" on the Internet and it recently landed on Forbes’ annual list of the "Best of the Web." The new site represents the next step in its evolution, and is designed to share all the information available at the parent site with consumers who are inexperienced with camcorder technology.

In addition to product ratings and to-the-point reviews intuitively organized by manufacturer, EasyCamcorders.com’s content includes a beginner’s guide to camcorders, easy-to-follow tutorials on specific aspects of usage such as how to shoot in low light or achieve special effects, and articles on the newest developments in the technology. The site also includes buying advice such as a list of "The Top Ten Most Important Things to Know When Buying a Camcorder" and, through a partnership with the comparison shopping website PriceGrabber.com, provides visitors with real-time pricing information on equipment.

"EasyCamcorders.com is poised to become the go-to Web destination for novices—no matter their budget or previous experience with consumer electronics—as they contemplate buying and using camcorders for the very first time," says Liss. "We’re confident that new users will discover a trusted resource in the rigorous analysis and informative articles that define EasyCamcorders.com."

Safe Escape, LLC Offers KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detectors

Using Parents' Own Voices to Awaken Sleeping Children and Provide Escape Instructions
New smoke alert uses the only sound proven to awaken sleeping children during a fire—-their parents’ own voices. Studies prove that traditional smoke alarms often don't awaken sleeping children.

Topeka, KS (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 9, 2022 -– According to the National SAFE KIDS Campaign, 40,000 children are seriously burned and injured, and an additional 1,200 perish each year in residential fires. One of the leading causes of these deaths and injuries is the recently discovered fact that children are not always awakened by traditional smoke alarms due to their very deep sleeping patterns. This phenomenon has been demonstrated on national news broadcasts such as NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw and many local news programs around the country.

Safe Escape, LLC, a company specializing in home safety products, announces it now offers a new smoke detector that has been demonstrated to awaken sleeping children ages 1 to 14 at a very high effectiveness rate. The KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector is the only alarm available that allows parents to record a "Wake-up Command" in their own voices and directed specifically at their own children.

In studies by the Victoria University Sleep Lab and the University of Georgia, the familiar voice of a parent proved 100% effective at awakening sleeping children in seconds. The KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector leverages this fact by using a recorded message from a parent to awaken the children and provide verbal instructions on how to escape from the burning home. The success of the KidSmart Detector at awakening children stems from its unique ability to capitalize on the brain's ability to recognize one's own name or a familiar noise over background noise or even while asleep.

Even if a child awakens in a residential fire crisis from the sounds of a traditional smoke detector, they are still at great risk. The secondary cause of fire-related death and injury to children is their tendency to panic in high-stress situations or act irrationally by hiding in closets or under their beds. Rather than issuing alarms that can panic a child, KidSmart can deliver a firm but reassuring message to the children, such as "Sally! Wake up! Sally! Wake up! Stay calm, follow the escape plan we practiced and meet me in the back yard." The vocal commands are followed by a series of high-pitched alarms.

"As a parent myself, I am very concerned about the safety of my kids," said Jim Driggers, president of Safe Escape, LLC.

The announcement was made by Bob Farinelli, ELAN’s President and Chief Technology Officer.

“ELAN’s new VIA!4.0 features a 4-inch color LCD touch screen that delivers quality VIA! performance in a small, in-wall package format at an affordable price point.

Added Paul Starkey, ELAN’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, “The release of the VIA!4.0 presents our Dealers with a significant new opportunity to service their clients further by offering an ELAN control screen that hits a price point between our keypads and the VIA!6.4-inch version.

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

In 2004 Europe surpassed the United States in camera unit shipments

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Speedline Technologies officially introduced its new new UltraFill Lead-Free Nozzles at the APEX 2005 Expo, held February 22-24, 2005, in Anaheim, Calif. The system is available immediately from Speedline distributors and representatives. For additional information, contact Speedline Technologies at 1-508-520-0083 or visit http://www.speedlinetech.com.

Speedline Technologies is the global leader in process knowledge and expertise for the PCB assembly and semiconductor industries. Based in Franklin, Massachusetts, U.S.A., the company markets five best-in-class brands — Accel microelectronics cleaning equipment; Camalot dispensing systems; Electrovert wave soldering, reflow soldering, and cleaning equipment; MPM stencil and screen printing systems; and Protect global services, support, and training solutions.

UniSwitch enables secure keyless entry for doors and security gates via cell phone

Tel-Aviv, (PRWEB) February 22, 2022 -- Cellbris, a leading provider of cellular communications solutions to businesses today announced the availability of UniSwitch, a cellular-based remote security access control and alert system. UniSwitch enables any cell phone to act as a method of keyless entry for secured doors and gates. In essence, UniSwitch turns a person’s cell phone into their remote control and security ID for any secured door or gate.

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

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

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

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

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

Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe Announces FlexRay Evaluation Kit

Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) today announced the release of a FlexRay® Evaluation Kit. This FPGA-based development platform enables the design and verification of hardware and software applications before production silicon is available, enabling customers to get working FlexRay products to market in the fastest possible time.

(PRWEB) February 22, 2022 -- Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) today announced the release of a FlexRay® Evaluation Kit. This FPGA-based development platform enables the design and verification of hardware and software applications before production silicon is available, enabling customers to get working FlexRay products to market in the fastest possible time.

This FlexRay Evaluation Kit is the first product in which Fujitsu will use the FlexRay controller IP that it recently licensed from Bosch. The Kit consists of an FPGA-board providing the FlexRay communication controller, the physical layer, and an MCU starter kit equipped with the MB91369, a 32-bit FR50 core. Along with the hardware comes a software package featuring a ready-to-use communication example. The software package includes a communication stack for the FlexRay controller IP that meets series production requirements for evaluation purposes or prototype development.

The modular design of the FPGA-board assures that any updates in the protocol or physical layer specifications can be implemented quickly without the need for a complete re-design. The board has pre-installed RS485 bus drivers. The board also provides sockets that allow third-party plug-in modules with FlexRay-compliant drivers to be added. The comprehensive package combined with the flexibility that FPGAs offer, will fulfil any requirements that designers need to develop FlexRay applications.

The MB91369 FR50 core has been chosen, as there are MCU starter kits already in use at many customers. The 32-bit RISC core has Harvard architecture, with a five-stage pipeline offering a single cycle instruction execution. This makes it powerful enough for the most demanding automotive applications. The 32-bit parallel bus interface of the FR50 core allows rapid access to the FlexRay controller.

Fujitsu will build on the FlexRay range by releasing a stand-alone ASSP during 2005, and in early 2006 the first embedded FlexRay 32-bit MCU will follow. Embedding FlexRay IP into a single-chip MCU will further advance the performance and range of automotive electronic control applications.

The FlexRay Evaluation kit is part of the exhibition at Embedded World 2005, Nuremberg, from February 22nd to 24th, where a demonstration will feature a working FlexRay-CAN gateway.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Children - In today's society most families have parents that work. Often in single parent families or families where both parents are working outside the home it is necessary for children to have access to the home while the parents are away. Entrusting even the most responsible child with a key is problematic.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

The units are covered by 2-year limited warranty.

Celoxica Delivers Advanced Synthesis Technology for SystemC

Agility Compiler Delivers ESL Implementation Flow for SoC Prototyping and Verification

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

About Celoxica
An innovator in Electronic System Level (ESL) design, Celoxica supplies the design tools, boards, IP and services that enable the next generation of advanced electronic product design. Celoxica technology raises design abstraction to the algorithm level, accelerating productivity and lowering risk and costs by generating semiconductor hardware directly from C-based software descriptions. Adding to a growing installed base, Celoxica provides the world’s most widely used C-based behavioural design and synthesis solutions to companies developing semiconductor products in markets such as consumer electronics, defence and aerospace, automotive, industrial and security.

Widget Distributes Etymotic Earphones Designed for Apple's IPOD®

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Telestrator Invention Wins Emmy Just In Time For Super Bowl

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The two companies pursue an expansion strategy and complement their existing teams with telecommunications specialists. Currently, XEMICS as well as CSEM are recruiting experts in analog processing and radio frequency circuit and system design.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just Released: New Heads Up Displays for Motorcycles

Seattle company has just developed the world's first consumer Heads Up display for motorcycles.

(PRWEB) February 2, 2022 -- Motorcycle riders and racers can now get a big performance boost from a cutting-edge technology - Heads Up displays. Motorcycle performance experts have teamed up with Heads Up innovators to create the new Veypor with SportVue™ Heads Up Display.

Motion Research Corporation's powerful, patented SportVue system is now incorporated with Non-Linear Engineering's Veypor data systems. The Veypor with SportVue HUD gives riders a continually-updated view of critical data - right inside their helmets. Riders can see their speed, rpm, performance data, and other critical information displayed in a real time heads-up display.

"Knowing my lap time and gear shift points while maintaining my focus on my riding can be a big advantage at the track," says Motion Research founder and former racer Dominic Dobson. "The new Veypor with SportVue Heads Up gives the rider back that focus, and makes riding on the street more fun."

The Veypor with SportVue HUD is adjustable and easy to install on most helmets and motorcycles. A Heads Up Display mounts on the helmet; an RF Sender unit connects to the Veypor and is conveniently mounted on your motorcycle.

Extension Module & Curved Covers for DIN Rail Enclosures from Camden Electronics

Camden Electronics has introduced a new extended height module and curved cover options for its range of DIN rail mounting enclosures.

(PRWEB) January 19, 2022 -- Camden Electronics has introduced a new extended height module and curved cover options for its range of DIN rail mounting enclosures.

The new extension module adds 15mm to the height of the original enclosure and enables two additional PCBs to be mounted horizontally. It simply snap fits to the top of existing enclosures enabling additional space to accommodate larger components and sub-assemblies where necessary. Like the original enclosures, the new extension module is moulded from Lexan polycarbonate to ensure the finished moulding fully meets UL94V0 flame retardancy ratings.

The new curved covers are designed to provide improved aesthetic appeal for the enclosures and offer an enhanced look that allows customers to deliver their systems in housings that appear to be custom designed rather than a standard box from any supplier. They are available in solid grey, clear, red transparent and smoky grey transparent. The design allows the hinged lid to be locked in the opened position so adjustments can be made to circuits within the enclosure without having to hold the cover.

Like their flat counterparts, the new curved covers can be supplied with or without a small hole that enables units to be sealed with wire, preventing unauthorised tampering with circuitry.

Camden's UK-manufactured snap-fit DIN rail enclosures sport a wide variety of features allowing users to produce housings to meet almost any conceivable requirement.

Unlike competitive products, Camden’s patented DIN rail mounting enclosures are fully UL94V0 flame retardant as they are moulded in polycarbonate instead of Noryl and other lower grade materials. Seven versions are available offering lengths of 17.5, 36, 53, 71, 89, 106 and 160mm all 90mm wide.

Offering greater versatility, Camden’s design features PCB guides to ensure boards are held in place firmly and moulded screw holes in the base to facilitate mounting of PCBs with heavier components such as relays or transformers. Up to three PCBs can be mounted horizontally while there are four mounting positions for vertical boards. The extension module adds two further horizontal positions.

The enclosure base is fully sealed with none of the holes that are found on competing products avoiding the need for any insulating pads and reducing assembly costs for users. The design of the enclosure is such that all tabs on the body have been eliminated to avoid small lugs that might break off.

Standard colour is grey (RAL 7035) although Camden can supply mouldings in black, green, red or blue for volume orders. In addition, the company can incorporate ventilation slots in its tooling for volume customers to avoid the need for machining by the end user. Besides reducing costs for the end user this facility also results in a stronger moulding compared to a similar enclosure with machined ventilation slots.

The new curved covers complement the original range of standard snap-in panel covers available in grey, transparent red or clear. Enclosures can optionally be supplied with a moulded top panel that can be screen printed also enabling transparent red or clear snap-in panels to be mounted with a label underneath for example.

Additional special features include snap-on terminal covers to IP20 finger protection with perforated screwdriver and wire entry holes and tabs as standard and spring loaded DIN rail clips that can be snapped open to allow chassis/surface mounting. Camden can also supply an optional adaptor for G-rail mounting. Terminal covers, snap-in panels and curved covers can also be provided to customer specifications for volume orders. Other optional special features include alternative black higher rated RTI material and EMC shielded metallic coated boxes.
