Georgia Tech Recognizes Need for Multilingual Communication with International Student Population

Atlanta, GA. (PRWEB) December 04, 2012

TrueLanguage, a leading provider of professional localization and translation services, today announced that Atlanta-based Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), one of the nations top research universities with more than 21,500 undergraduate and graduate students, has introduced Spanish and Chinese (simplified) admissions and application pages to its website. This change will help the university improve communication with its existing and prospective international students.

The web pages also can be accessed via a mobile web browser to accommodate rapidly increasing smart phone adoption and usage, particularly among younger generations.

In an effort to address the needs of its international student body and to recruit more foreign students, Georgia Tech recognized the need to provide critical admissions information to Chinese and Spanish speaking audiences in their own language for the first time, said Uli Dendy, CEO for TrueLanguage. This is the first step in taking Georgia Techs communications strategy with prospective students to a global level and we are excited to have played a role."

Each year, Georgia Tech receives a vast number of applications from countries across the globe. In 2012, 14 percent of the incoming freshman population was from outside of the U.S. Of these, more than 30 percent were Asian and nearly 8 percent Hispanic. To ease the application process for international students and make the university more attractive to potential students from other countries, it was important for Georgia Tech to invest in high-quality, professional translation in order to most effectively reach a truly global applicant population.

Partnering with TrueLanguage, Georgia Tech developed admissions pages in the two of the most widely spoken languages Chinese and Spanish. TrueLanguage managed the technical implementation and translation into both languages.

Based in Atlanta, TrueLanguage is a full-service professional localization company that provides cost-effective translation, interpretation and localization services based on each clients specific needs. TrueLanguage offers clients a strong combination of professional language experts, centralized project management and outstanding customer service to ensure accurate, compatible, reliable and authentic translation and interpretation in more than 60 languages worldwide.

Compact USB Optically Isolated I/O Module with Dual RS-232/422/485 Serial Communication Ports

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 13, 2006

ACCES I/O Products, Inc. is pleased to announce another addition to its successful line of USB embedded data acquisition modules -- Model USB-IIRO4-2SM. This dense multifunction device incorporates four optically isolated digital inputs, four Form C (SPDT) electromechanical relay outputs, and two RS-232/422/485 serial communication ports -- all packaged in a small, rugged, industrial enclosure. This USB device is an ideal solution for adding portable, easy-to-install, digital and serial capabilities to any PC or embedded system with a USB port. It is fully compatible with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 ports. Hot-plug functionality allows for quick connect/disconnect whenever additional I/O on a USB port is needed. This single USB device is ideal for a variety of applications where on-board relays are required and inputs must be isolated such as in test equipment, instrumentation, industrial monitoring, process control and communication. The OEM version provides just the board without the enclosure and is ideal for a variety of embedded OEM applications.

Electromechanical Form C relays are used due to their robustness and ability to withstand unexpected surge currents. This allows for increased flexibility in switching capability. These relays are used in environments where small reed relays would be considered inadequate due to their susceptibility to contact damage. The unit also features a high-speed custom function driver optimized for a maximum data throughput that is 50-100 times faster than the USB human interface device (HID) driver used by many competing products. This approach maximizes the full functionality of the hardware and capitalizes on the advantages of USB. To simplify wiring connections, the isolated inputs and relay outputs are available via a mounted DB25 connector or, for OEMs, a 26-pin IDC vertical shrouded header. An additional USB input header is provided for embedded applications along with a downstream USB port for connecting additional USB devices. Serial communications are conveniently provided through two DB9 connectors with adjacent LEDs indicating serial port activity.

Key features of the USB-IIRO4-2SM include:

Microwavable Chips for Wireless Communication

Microwavable Chips for Wireless Communication

(PRWEB) August 19, 2005

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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