AValon RF and Blackfin Provide “Land Warriors” with Essential Survival Tools – Wearable Computers with Integrated Wireless Links

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 20, 2005

AValonRF presents its Wearable Computer solutions and Wearable computers with integrated digital wireless links at AFCEA WEST 2005, San Diego, California, February 1-3, 2005, San Diego, California, Booth 1451.

Leapfrog advances in communications, sensors, and materials technologies have transformed the equipment inventory carried by today’s soldier beyond the realm of the well-oiled weapon. Included are far-flung items like video cameras, microphones, and global positioning systems (GPS) - tools that let leaders and soldiers exchange video, audio and data. The Future Combat System (FCS) contents of the new-age kitbag provide soldiers with accurate target location capabilities, enabling operation in harsh weather or close to zero light conditions, and even allowing shots to be taken around corners without exposure to enemy fire. Above all else, today’s tools of the battlefield are aimed at helping soldiers survive.

In the urban combat theater, “land warriors,” like police, fire fighters, medics and security guards, can also benefit from these lightweight, wireless video/audio tools. While the uses may differ, wireless systems like these must be compact, energy efficient, easy to produce, and affordable, if they are to become successfully applied in military and commercial/industrial contexts.

AValon RF, located in El Cajon, CA, develops and manufacturers such wireless products. The company’s original products were based on true diversity wireless technology that allows fast video, audio, data, and telemetry communications over dial-up phone lines and wireless media (“in air,” or under water).

A pioneer and innovator dedicated to the delivery of state-of-the-art wireless products at affordable prices, AValon RF set out to develop its next-generation of products based on the latest space-time wireless technology. For this, AValon RF turned to Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) for its Blackfin® processor. Blackfin embodies a new breed of embedded processor that combines high performance and low power. Blackfin was designed specifically to meet the computational demands and power constraints of today's embedded audio, video, and communications applications.

A Stronger Signal

AValon RF products target high mobility applications for military, government, private industry, and consumers. The company’s products can be used for unmanned air, ground and sea vehicles, mine sweeping, long-range video links for border patrol, covert surveillance, maintenance of nuclear power plants, electronic newsgathering, wireless TV viewing, and many other applications. To accommodate these applications, AValon RF products carry one-way video, alarm, and telemetry, two-way audio and data, and cover frequencies from 56 MHz to 2.5 GHz.

Developers of high mobility products must take care to manage signal fading, which can result when multiple signals from different paths cancel each other out at the receiver antenna, or when large objects obstruct the line of sight between the antenna/transmitter. It can also happen as a result of humidity, fog, or rain, or from an overcrowded spectrum. Signal fading is often managed by capturing the strongest signal from an array of multiple antennas (a technique called antenna diversity). There are numerous types of diversity technologies and numerous types of diversity receivers.

The most commonly used method for mobile applications is space diversity, which ensures that at least one antenna at any given time will not be subject to distortion. With multiple antennas placed at a site, one can control the proximity of the transmitter antenna to one of the receiving antennas. Signal fading is further complicated in a mobile environment in that the “nulls” are not fixed in space, but vary in time; the user is moving and so is the environment. “Developing wireless products that deliver reliable audio/video is tough,” said Eli Weinstein, President of AValon RF. “The likelihood of unwanted interference is high when you’re transferring audio/video back and forth between two moving objects.”

One of the newest and best solutions to signal-fading issues in mobile environments is space-time diversity, whereby signal processing is performed on a receiver that comprises several antennas, exploiting both the spatial (space) and temporal (time) dimensions of a radio channel. AValon RF planned to update its entire product line¾transmitters, lapel cameras, diversity receivers, boom cameras, and wireless digital microphones¾to cutting-edge space-time diversity technology.

High Performance, Low Power, Low Cost

AValon RF’s space-time diversity receiver is essentially a software-defined radio (SDR), which requires a processor to handle SDR functions and space-time diversity processing for the receiver. Said Weinstein, “We needed a high-performance processor that could handle the complex mathematical algorithms this application requires. It had to be low power so that we can use smaller batteries for lighter, more comfortable products our customers can wear. And it had to be cost-effective so that we can manufacture products our customers can afford to buy in volume.”

“Blackfin was the best choice for us. It is the smallest chip on the market. It doesn’t waste battery power,” he continued. “It’s very powerful. And it’s affordable.”

Blackfin processors combine a 32-bit RISC-like instruction set and dual 16-bit multiply-accumulate signal-processing functionality with the ease-of-use attributes found in general-purpose microcontrollers. For power savings, Blackfin processors are based on a gated clock core design that selectively powers down functional units on an instruction-by-instruction basis. Blackfin supports multiple power-down modes for periods where little or no CPU activity is required. Blackfin also features a dynamic power-management scheme whereby the operating frequency and voltage can be tailored to meet the performance requirements of the algorithm currently being executed. As such, Blackfin processors are particularly well suited for portable applications requiring extended battery life.

Weinstein says another benefit of working with ADI is that he was able to purchase a whole suite of products from the company in addition to the Blackfin processors. “ADI is one of the very few companies where you can get everything you need to build a radio under one roof.”

Thanks to Blackfin, AValon RF’s space-time diversity receivers offer the best possible signal-to-noise ratio, using signals from all antennas to create an output. That translates to a 6dB gain in a four-antenna system. The receivers clean up most, if not all, multi-path distortion and compensate for receiver/transmitter motion by measuring the Doppler shift and spread, and by shifting the spectrum. AValon RF’s space-time receivers convert line-of-sight systems into non-line-of-sight systems by tuning in to the multi-path signals in the absence of a direct signal. And they eliminate jamming signals from unwanted directions. This adds up to high-mobility solutions that deliver audio/video data without fail, which, on the battlefield, can mean the difference between life and death.

Software-Defined Radio

A conventional digital radio system comprises three main sections: a radio frequency (RF) front-end section, an intermediate frequency (IF) section, and a baseband section. The RF section, also called the RF front-end, comprises analog hardware modules, while the IF and baseband blocks comprise digital hardware modules.

The RF front-end transmits/receives the RF signal from an antenna, converts the signal to an IF signal, and performs RF amplification as well as analog down and analog up conversions. The IF block comprises A-D and D-A conversion blocks for analog-to-digital conversions and vice versa, and digital-down conversion (DDC) and digital-up conversion (DUC) blocks to perform signal modulation (signal generation) on the transmit path and demodulation (also called digital tuning) on the receive path. The baseband section performs numerous operations such as connection setup, equalization, hopping, and timing, and implements the link layer protocol.

Software-defined radio (SDR) technology comprises software modules that implement IF and baseband radio functions and various waveform requirements over a broad frequency range. Used for military, commercial, and civilian radio applications, SDR technology enables a system to implement differing link-layer protocols and modulation / demodulation techniques.

This kind of flexibility helps manufacturers deal with multiple standards as well as issues surrounding the deployment of new services and features. SDR dramatically reduces the hardware costs that would otherwise be necessary to accommodate multiple standards and upgrades.

·RF UHF Encrypted Transceivers

TR430-3G - 1.53Mbaud/1W UHF transceiver with GPS

TR423-1 - 76Kbaud/0.25W UHF transceiver

Ace Computers Delivers Custom High Performance Computing to Leading Physics Analyst

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 27, 2013

Ace Computers, one of the finest custom technology manufacturers in the U.S., has been tagged by a leading computational physics analysis organization to provide custom high performance computers including core clusters, visualization post-processing machines, development workstations, networking, and storage.

Ace Computers CEO John Samborski said, “They chose us because we work closely with companies, like Intel, that they respect and that we are cost competitive. We are on the same page, which is the basis for a close collaborative relationship and they trust us to provide exactly what they want.”

The organization provides computational physics analysis, such as fluid dynamics, shock wave physics, and structural mechanics, to support the defense and automotive industries. They maintain a 5,000-CPU parallel supercomputer system capable of conducting a massive number of large-scale computations annually. The organization also develops prototype hardware for incorporation into existing and emerging weapon systems.

As a test, the organization first ordered an Intel-based HPC 584 core cluster with QDR IB from Ace Computers. Once they were satisfied, they initiated a full-scale purchase. Among the many benefits the organization cited of working with a smaller technology manufacturer are that they really get to know each client’s business and they are accessible. They also noted that Ace Computers is highly experienced, competent, and has a good reputation. The organization’s CEO added that he has recommended Ace Computers many times because of the value and service—which is just about everything that most people are looking for—and so hard to find--- in a custom technology manufacturer.

Samborski said, “It’s the ability level of our employees that makes us so successful. Our clients have good reason to trust us because we have a good track record. There are not that many companies that can design and implement high level data centers.”

Acknowledged as the best custom technology manufacturer, Ace Technology Partners (Ace Computers) is a Woman-Owned Small Business custom technology systems manufacturer and reseller for the public sector as well as the commercial sector. Their channel partners include Intel, Supermicro, InfiniBand, NVIDIA, Mellanox and Samsung among others. It has been an industry leader since 1983.

Experts Estimate 270 Million Computers Have Outdated Anti Virus Software

Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) July 03, 2013

Millions of computer users are using out of date antivirus software according to the latest volume of the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report released on April 17th, 2013. It is no secret that having an up to date anti-virus software is recommended by security experts, but do users really need the most updated version to be protected? With the sheer number of new malware applications, computer viruses and the ever growing threats online, it would seem obvious that users would want to have the highest level of cyber security, but an overwhelming number of PC users are not using the most current antivirus software applications.

Microsoft's Security report indicates that there are nearly 270 million users worldwide who are using an outdated anti-virus on their home or office computer. The report also shows that the chances of getting a computer virus or malicious malware is 5 times higher for users who are not being proactive and taking the necessary precautions. Everyone knows that a computer needs AV software but why would so many people neglect to protect their computers?

People today live in a digital world where things are always becoming more automated and people often assume that once software is installed on the users machine that is all they ever need to do and the rest will happen by itself, unfortunately this is not the case, says Ilias Melikov a spokesperson for the security software PCKeeper.

It is a common misconception that blocking all malware or computer viruses is virtually impossible and with that mindset many users undervalue the need for the most recent AV software. The speed that technology changes in todays world means that the most basic protection can become obsolete in a few days, weeks or months. In the same way that the bad guys are always changing how malware and viruses are delivered, Anti Virus companies are investing millions of dollars in the technology to stay a step ahead of them in detecting threats and vulnerabilities.

Threats are always changing and we must change with them and part of that change means having the most current version of whatever anti-virus application you are using. We update our virus database as often as several times a day and this is a contributing factor of why PCKeeper has performed so well and has some of the best detection rates among the top security software vendors, says Mr. Melikov.

In fact, according to the independent security testing agency AV Comparatives, the PCKeeper AntiVirus proved to be 99.4% effective in identifying potential threats. No antivirus tested scored a perfect 100% detection rate but cyber security experts recommend users have an anti-virus software of at least a 95% detection and above to be safe.
