New ZX Microcontrollers Released

New ZX Microcontrollers Released










Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) March 13, 2010

Elba Corporation announced today the first customer shipments of a series of new, more powerful multi-tasking microcontrollers intended for use by scientists, engineers, experimenters and hobbyists. The ZX-24r and ZX-24s are 24-pin DIP format devices targeted to beginning and intermediate users. Since the new devices are pin-compatible with the Parallax Basic Stamp (BS2) and the NetMedia BasicX-24 (BX-24), they provide a convenient upgrade path for those needing a more powerful processor for their application. All ZX-series microcontrollers are programmed in ZBasic, a subset of Microsoft's Visual Basic (VB6) with microcontroller-specific extensions and other productivity enhancements. Since ZBasic is also a superset of BasicX, in most cases a BX-24 application can simply be re-compiled for the ZX-24r or ZX-24s.

The newest members of the ZX microcontroller family are based on the Atmel ATmega1284P MCU. The primary benefits offered by the new ZX models are expanded RAM (up to 16K), an additional hardware UART and additional PWM channels (up to four 16-bit and two 8-bit). The new ZX-24r and ZX-24s are highly source code compatible with the previously released ZX family members meaning that most users can upgrade to using the new devices simply by re-compiling their applications. The difference between the ZX-24r and the ZX-24s is that the former utilizes a Virtual Machine model while the latter executes native code.

The single unit pricing of the new ZX devices is $ 59.95. Volume pricing is available. For higher volume or more advanced applications, PDIP-40 and TQFP-44 variants are also offered.

The ZBasic programming language is a subset of Microsoft's Visual Basic (VB6) language with object-oriented extensions. The compiler incorporates advanced optimization techniques that help programmers pack more functionality into the available code and data spaces by, for example, eliminating unused or superfluous variables and unused or unreachable code.

Programs for the ZX series devices may be edited, compiled and downloaded using a state-of-the-art Integrated Development Environment. The ZBasic IDE provides productivity-enhancing features such as word completion, call tips, auto-indenting, syntax highlighting and undo/redo. For the VM-based devices, the IDE can also be used to perform field updates of the internal firmware, making it simple to upgrade to new firmware releases as they become available.

More information and a free download of the compiler, IDE and documentation are available at http://www.zbasic.net.

ZBasic, ZX-24, ZX-40, ZX-328, ZX-32, ZX-40, ZX-44, ZX-1281, ZX-1280 and Elba are trademarks of Elba Corp. Other product or service names mentioned herein are trademarks of their respective owners.

Ergonomics Remains Controversial Issue — Carpal Tunnel Link and Business Impact Disputed in Safety.BLR.com Poll

Ergonomics Remains Controversial Issue -- Carpal Tunnel Link and Business Impact Disputed in Safety.BLR.com Poll










Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) February 8, 2006

When it comes to controversy in the safety profession, ergonomics -- the science of fitting the job to the worker doing that job -- always tops the list. According to two recent polls conducted by Safety.BLR.com, “Making Safety Training and Compliance Easier,” safety managers seem to be at odds with both a recent medical study and the view of many in business who have fought OSHA’s proposed ergonomics standard. Poll results show that a majority of safety pros view computer use as a causal factor in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), and that an ergonomics standard would have little impact on economic activity.

The first poll asked: “Do you believe computer use causes carpal tunnel syndrome?” Fully 55 percent of the 474 respondents responded in the affirmative, that they believe there to be a causal link between CTS incidence and computer use.

These results came after the release of a Harvard Medical School paper disputing the linking of computer use and CTS. The researchers asserted that not only was there no link, but that computer use up to 7 hours a day has no effect on risk for developing CTS. Instead, risk factors may include heredity, body weight, fracture, or even pregnancy.

The second poll asked: “What effect would an ergonomics standard have on the economy?” Sixty-one percent of the 265 respondents said that its effect would only be slightly positive, slightly negative, or have no effect. This poll was conducted after the Michigan Senate passed legislation blocking regulations on workplace ergonomics.

“Viewed as a whole, the results seem to show that ergonomics remains an important issue for safety managers,” said Steve Quilliam, editor of Safety.BLR.com. “They show that folks are convinced of the seriousness of carpal tunnel as an ergonomics hazard and that regulations to protect workers are necessary and would have a negligible economic effect.”

To help control ergonomics hazards in the workplace, the safety editors at Safety.BLR.com have developed a free download, “Musculoskeletal Disorder Prevention Checklist.” Download it here: http://www.blr.com/81001600/PRS86

The OnGARD Security Door Brace : The Future In Preventing Home Invasions & Burglaries

The OnGARD Security Door Brace : The Future In Preventing Home Invasions & Burglaries













Nothing is Stronger the OnGARD Door Brace


Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 31, 2010

Global Security Experts Inc. (GSE) is the nation's leading designer and manufacturer of proprietary security solutions for homeowners and businesses, announces the debut of the patent pending OnGARD™ door lock/brace. OnGARD™ is an affordable and effective way to stop America's most underreported crime: Home Invasions. Unfortunately, a home invasion is typically just the beginning of a series of nightmares that may include robbery, kidnapping, rape and even murder. And the best way to prevent families from becoming another sad statistic is with the OnGUARD™ door lock/brace.

The Most Underreported Crime in America: The Daily Threat of Home Invasions

"From wealthy suburbs to middle class neighborhoods, from the legendary Gold Coast to the nation's heartland, home invasions are now, sadly, part of our existence. For home invaders have no regard for human life; injuring or murdering a family is simply a means to an evil end: stealing valuables and other precious items," states Mr. Frankel. Consider the following frightening statistics:

1 of every 5 homes will experience a break-in or violent home invasion.

78% of break-ins occur forcibly through a locked door.

Up to 38% of assaults & 60% of rapes occur during home invasions.

Enter OnGARD™, the patent pending security door lock/brace designed by GSE. Five years in development, the unique two-piece design utilizes both the strength of the floor and a space age polymer, the identical material in US fighter planes. OnGARD™'s remarkable strength easily resists blows from kick-ins, shoulder slams and even sledge hammers," says Jordan Frankel, Founder and Executive Vice President of Global Security Experts Inc (GSE).

Without OnGUARD™ a door frame will likely splinter and separate from a deadbolt during a home invasion. For example: An average sized male using a 5 pound sledgehammer can easily destroy the door frame and/or deadbolt with just a few quick blows, leaving a family vulnerable to a burglar or attacker.

"An alarm system alone cannot keep your family safe. For example: an alarm sounds only after a break-in has occurred, which means the intruder in most cases has already entered the home. Sadly, criminals can do the 'unthinkable' between an alarm sounding and the police arriving on scene. And law enforcement may not respond for as much as 30 minutes.

A typical homeowner can install OnGARD™ is less than 10 minutes. For only $ 139.00 dollars, this extraordinary device could quite simply save your life. Get one step ahead of the criminals and install OnGARD™ today.

About Global Security Experts (GSE), Inc.

Headquartered in Atlanta, GSE designs and manufactures proprietary security solutions for homeowners and businesses. Led by Jordan Frankel, an internationally known security consultant and product inventor, GSE`s innovative products transform the way individuals and industries guard against natural and man-made attacks.

Web Designer Sued by Dell Computers For Using His Name

Web Designer Sued by Dell Computers For Using His Name










Paris, France (PRWEB) February 22, 2006

Paul Dell, a website designer living in Minorca, Spain has been sued (AFF/DOS. N° 100019460, ACTE 395925, N/REF.: DELL/DELL) by large computer manufacturer Dell Computers for operating a small local business using his own name — Dell Websites. The lawsuit claims he’s engaging in “parasitism and unfair competition” and asks for hundreds of thousands of Euros in damages, despite the fact that Dell Websites has been operating under the name since April 2001 and the computer company neither designs nor hosts websites. The lawsuit was filed in a Paris court because Paul previously lived in France.

The suit alleges that Paul used the name Dell Websites to take advantage of press releases the company sent out in spring of 2000 announcing that Dell was about to enter the small-business website hosting market. A diligent search on Google reveals that Dell apparently never pursued this business.

This isn’t the first time Paul has heard from the company’s lawyers. In 2002 they contacted him, demanding that he turn the domain name http://www.dellwebsites.com over to Dell. Paul refused, and Dell appeared to back off. In late 2004 they contacted him again, and in October 2005 they filed the suit.

Prominent members of the web design community have banded together to help Paul battle the behemoth. They’ve started two blogs, http://www.help-paul-dell.com and http://www.pauldell.blogspot.com to disseminate information, rally support, and create a way for people to make donations to help Paul fight this expensive lawsuit. As a show of appreciation, Paul is giving each donor a download of one of his CSS-based website templates.

For additional information, contact Paul Dell or visit http://www.help-paul-dell.com. Paul Dell's websites can be found at http://www.dellwebsites.com and http://www.dellimages.com.

Revolutionary Thermal Printer Designed for Today’s POS Needs Introduced by Star Micronics America

Revolutionary Thermal Printer Designed for Today’s POS Needs Introduced by Star Micronics America










Edison, NJ (PRWEB) September 16, 2005

Star Micronics America introduces the TSP100 futurePRNT, a revolutionary thermal printer that has been specifically designed to address the evolution in the Point of Sale (POS) market. The TSP100 futurePRNT represents a number of industry firsts, including serving as the first USB-only printer and the first true “plug and play” printer that is delivered with all necessary accessories, including an internal power supply, USB cable, wall and vertical mounts, driver CD, sample paper, quick set-up guide, power switch cover, and paper guide.

“The release of the TSP100 futurePRNT underscores Star Micronics’ commitment to continue deploying innovative products to the reseller channel. futurePRNT marks a new revolution for the reseller with its ease of integration into virtually any software package, providing all necessary accessories in the box at the time of purchase, plus, offering the ease of use and reliability that end users demand,” said Michael Hanson, VP, Sales & Marketing, Star Micronics America.

The TSP100 futurePRNT significantly simplifies the integration of a fast thermal printer into any POS system, creating numerous benefits for end users, resellers, software developers, and retailers. With the TSP100 futurePRNT, support calls are eliminated and set up time is dramatically reduced. The result is considerable savings in time and money for end users and resellers.

Speed is a critical factor in determining a POS thermal printer and Star has addressed the two most important variables affecting print speed – the interface and commands. As the first printer to offer only USB, the TSP100 futurePRNT has distinct data transfer benefits over printers with Serial, Parallel interfaces.. The TSP100 futurePRNT is also one of the few industry printers that is digitally signed by Microsoft, so there are no pop up windows warning of potential computer problems when the installing the driver.

Further enhancing the speed of the TSP100 futurePRNT are new drivers. Extremely powerful, the drivers eliminate the need for emulation software and take advantage of today’s computers with faster microprocessors so that elaborate receipts with extensive graphics can be printed at the same speed as conventional receipts. The drivers include the graphics to be printed after the data leaves the application and before it reaches the printer. This is a dramatic improvement over conventional printers that use complicated software to load graphic into the firmware of the printer.

The new process created by the TSP100 futurePRNT enables end users to use a receipt as a marketing device, such as incorporating logos and coupons, without losing print speed. An additional benefit is that, because all graphics are stored in the computer rather than in the printer, a virtual unlimited amount of graphics can be stored.

Complementing the drivers is intelligent software that brings “search” and “replace” functionality to the TSP100 futurePRNT. With the software, which is part of the driver package and included in the package, retailers of any size can utilize the search capability to replace incorrect information (phone number, address, etc.) or add a graphic(s) specific to the receipt being printed.

The ability of the TSP100 futurePRNT to print graphics so quickly has changed the way print speed is evaluated. Conventional specifications, such as inches per second no longer apply. Rather, today’s POS printers should be evaluated based upon receipts per minute (RPM) and the TSP100 futurePRNT delivers an industry-best 25 RPM, regardless of the type of graphics used on the receipt.

Counter space is another consideration that is addressed with the TSP100 futurePRNT. Star has been able to maintain a compact size with the TSP100 futurePRNT while also including the power supply in the standard housing. Additionally, the TSP100 futurePRNT has a flexible design that allows the printer to be easily converted into a vertical station in applications where space is at a premium. Because wall mounts are included as a standard item, the TSP100 futurePRNT can be easily hung to create additional counter space.

Despite all these advantages, the TSP100 futurePRNT’s price is comparable to a thermal printer with a Serial port.
