AValonRF and XteQ Announce the Availability of AvalonRF Rugged PDA with Integrated Wireless Link and GPS, to be Demonstrated at AFCEA

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 27, 2005

AValonRF presents its Rugged PDA with integrated Wireless Link and GPS at AFCEA WEST 2005, San Diego, California, February 1-3, 2005, San Diego, California, Booth 1451.

AFCEA 2005 offers the first public opportunity for AvalonRF to demonstrate file transfer between two V38R Rugged PDAs, transmission of images and realtime messaging using the TR430 RF link.

This Ruggedized PDA unit can be used as a low cost handheld device for short range UAV, UGV, USV, and for various other Military, Industrial and Security applications.

Other applications - Public Safety PDA with biometrics, DUI, Speeding and parking ticket generation capability; Patrol Vehicle Component

XteQ, Inc. has partnered with AvalonRF and has developed a Windows CE.NET driver that interfaces the AValonRF TR430 radio to the newly released Viewsonic V38R industrialized PDA. The TR430 Driver provides an operating system interface by which applications running on the V38R can use the TR430 wireless transceiver. Included onboard the TR430 is a GPS receiver which permits the PDA user to determine their location, and with a suitable mapping application, the position of other V38R users.

The V38R Rugged PDA with the TR430-2G integrated Wireless link is running Windows CE.

Includes a daylight readable 3.5” display, biometrics, bar code reader, camera/flash with a 2GB SD card storage, microphone and speaker, USB, RS232, IRDT, 802.11g, Bluetooth and GPS. Has a Replaceable battery that lasts for 8 hours.

The TR430 Driver software integration project completed with XteQ, Inc., a company also known for their aerospace and military mission critical multi-channel intercom systems. A network version of the driver is in the works. That version will enable networkable applications access to V38Rs through the TR430 RF links to bring applications such as Internet browsing, streaming media, and VoIP communications.

AvalonRF digital links are based on a unique modular concept where each link is composed from a combination of micro modules, connected together via a 100Mbaud full duplex daisy chained serial bus.

Approximate size and weight of each module: 60mm x 33mm x 9mm, 14 grams.
