Crossware Releases Flash Programming Software for Freescale ColdFire Boards

Cambridge, UK (PRWEB) November 24, 2004

Crossware (http://www.crossware.com), a leading embedded tools developer, has released flash programming software that can be used to program Freescale ColdFire® boards using its FireFly USB BDM (background debug mode) interface. This can save developers considerable amounts of time as FireFly can program flash more than 8 times faster than via a parallel port interface.

The flash software – available free of charge to users of Crossware’s FireFly interface - will simultaneously control up to 127 USB ports each connected to a separate ColdFire board. A single click of the mouse will program the selected software file into any or all of the connected boards.

The Crossware software can automatically generate a configuration script - required so that the target board can be correctly set up for flash programming - by examining the program that is to be downloaded. This feature eliminates the need for the script to be created manually.

Multiple program formats are supported including Motorola 'S' records, IEEE 695 and ELF. The software can be used with programs generated by any ColdFire tool chain as well as those generated with the Crossware ColdFire Development Suite.

Crossware developed its small yet powerful and fast FireFly BDM interface for Motorola’s ColdFire® family of chips. FireFly features a USB controller and requires no external crystal. The miniature debugger plugs directly into the target board minimizing signal delays and ensuring compatibility with the new generation of ColdFire chips running at up to 200 MHz.

The FireFly USB BDM interface is also driven by a new version of Crossware’s source level debugging software, which integrates seamlessly with the rest of its ColdFire Development Suite. The user interface is unchanged and so developers can simply replace their existing parallel port interface with the new USB debugger and immediately benefit from the improved performance. In addition, developers can also move to platforms such as the newer generation of notebook PCs, which do not have a parallel port.

For more information about the ColdFire USB Flash Programming Software or any product from Crossware, please contact Alan Harry, Crossware, Old Post House, Silver Street, Litlington, Royston, Herts, SG8 0QE, UK, tel: + 44 (0) 1763 853500 or fax + 44 (0) 1763 853330, aharry@crossware.com.

About Crossware (http://www.crossware.com)

Crossware is a leading developer of programmer-friendly C cross compilers and other development tools for embedded systems based on the 8051, ColdFire, 68000, CPU32 and other chip families. Host environments include Windows 9x, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The company, founded by Alan Harry in 1984, is headquartered in the UK at Litlington on the outskirts of Cambridge.

Jence Incorporated Releases NineSYNC, a Server Level Database Synchronization Web Services Software

(PRWEB) February 3, 2005

NineSYNC is a database synchronization web services program. This database synchronization program allows heterogeneous databases to synchronize target database with source database. A comprehensive mapper allows the user to select the tables and datatypes of the source and map them to the target database.

NineSYNC Difference

NineSYNC differentiation is it is a web service. The advantage of web service is that it works over firewall using HTTP/HTTPS protocol. The program will reside on a server anywhere in the world and controlled by client programs. Another added advantage of using a web service is that the program is callable by any web services enabled application regardless of the language used to develop it. NineSYNC does not require that the source and target database exist on the server where NineSYNC is installed. The source and target databases are seen as IP addresses with a user name and password. The web service will remotely connect the two databases using those addresses.

Supported Databases

SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, Postgresql, DB2.

Mapper Feature

The mapper interface may be able to map data types of source database to target database on a column by column basis. The only restriction is that the primary keys have to be identical.

Periodic Scheduling

NineSYNC may be set up for periodic synchronization daily, weekly or monthly.

Stop and Pause Mode

This allows you to pause database synchronization and then resume at your will. If the synchronization is paused, then when resumed, the web service continues from where it left off, if the source database has not changed.

Report Generation and Log Files

Log files are created for each synchronization. The log files are XML based and the web service client have the option to generate HTML report from the log file.

Client Graphical User Interface

The web service also comes with a client graphical user interface, which includes a mapper interface, user login, account creation screen, database synchronization scheduler. Future version will also have a file synchronization interface.

Operation

The web service called NineSYNC appears as a URL string. The client contacts the URL using this string and fetches the WSDL file, which describes how the web services need to be used. The client makes the calls described in the WSDL to communicate with the web service. Once connection is made, the client simply calls the routines synchronously to the web service. When the synchronization starts, the client may logout without terminating the synchronization operation. The client may later come login and check the status of the operation. Log files and mapper file may be printed or viewed on a web browser.

Server Requirements

1. Apache Tomcat v5.5, Sun Appserver 8, IBM Websphere, or other compatible Java App Servers compatible with servlet 2.3 specification.

2. Minimum 1 GB RAM. Ram requirements may increase for larger databases. One million row synchronization requires at least 1 GB.

3. Java Virtual Machine 1.4.1 required.

4. At least one of the following databases required for user management: MySql, Oracle, SqlServer, Postgress, DB2. Sybase, Informix and Derby will be supported soon.

5. High speed internet connection is needed.

6. Valid IP address need for source and target databases.

Clent Requirements

1. Java Virtual Machine 1.4 or above required.

2. No minimum memory requirements, but at least 64 MB RAM recommended.

3. High speed internet connection is not required, but recommended.

Sales and Support

Jence Incorporated will provide six month free support. Support contract are available on an annual basis. Please contact sales@jence.com or call 781-962-1462 for more sales and support information.

Availability

NineSYNC is available in single user, limited user and unlimited user mode license. The program comes with both server and client. The server must be deployed in a Web Container or a J2EE compliant server.

License

NineSYNC is available in single user, limited user and unlimited user mode license. The program comes with both server and client side application. There is no per CPU license requirements or any royalty fees. The server must be deployed in a Web Container or a J2EE compliant server.

More Information

More information is available by contacting Jence Incorporated or visiting the website http://www.ninestep.com. PDF brochures will be available soon.

Prestigio Releases New Widescreen Notebook-Based Multimedia Center with InstantON Support

Seoul, South Korea (PRWEB) February 8, 2005

Prestigio, one of the most dynamic international manufacturers of LCD displays and TVs, mobile computers, and plasma TVs, has unveiled a new high-performance notebook-based multimedia center featuring brilliantly sharp panoramic 15.4" WSXGA+ LCD screen, 256MB of dedicated video RAM for incredible gains in graphic performance, InstantON function, and sloped keyboard.

The brand-new Nobile 159W is the second multimedia center in Prestigio’s mobile computer line-up. Just like its predecessor Visconte 120 it is capable of instantly playing music CDs, DVD videos, MP3s and browsing digital photos without loading the operation system thanks to its InterVideo® InstantON™ feature. And the PC Card remote control included into the basic configuration allows to control the machine from a distance in InstantON mode and even shut down Windows XP with a press of a button in Windows mode. The new model also supports internal (mini PCI) TV-tuner option. Another pleasant feature meant to provide comfortable typing and prevention of wrist pain (carpal tunnel syndrome) is the highly ergonomic uniquely-designed sloped keyboard.

On top of that, Nobile 159W can boast of an enhanced resolution of WSXGA+ 1680x1050. In addition, the new multimedia center has been equipped with ATI M11 256MB external graphics with ATI PowerPlay™ technology support for less energy consumption and incredible surge in performance for 3D gaming, business applications, and CAD modeling. At the same time, its mobility has not been sacrificed for performance, and the thickness has remained ultra-slim for a performance class notebook (25-33 mm sloped). The Centrino platform allows for increased battery life and wireless connectivity.

Nobile 159W is powered by Intel® Pentium® M processor of up to 2.0 GHz (Dothan supported). The notebook’s compatibility and connectability with other devices is ensured through a wide selection of ports. Nobile 159W is equipped with 3 USB 2.0 ports, RJ-45 Ethernet plug, RJ-11 modem plug, external VGA port, IEEE 1394 port, S-Video output port, headphone/SPDIF jack, PC Card Type II, and mic-in jack, 4-in-1 Card Reader port.

The brand-new multimedia center’s owner will by no means remain without a connection with the world, since Nobile 159W has extensive communication capabilities. It possesses a V.92 fax modem, an integrated 10/100 Mbps Ethernet card, a Bluetooth expansion port, and a 4-in-1 card reader.

The available optional extras include a PCMCIA TV Tuner, as well as a unique Port Replicator which, unlike other similar devices, is connected to the VGA Out port rather than to a USB port, thus saving the highly demanded USB ports for external devices while providing numerous additional ports.

Overall, Nobile 159W is a versatile multimedia center based on notebook form-factor which is able to meet the strictest requirements of gamers, managers, graphic designers, and all other individuals looking for a reliable high-performance machine with excellent graphics and communication possibilities. Nobile 159W will be available across Eastern Europe, Middle East and Asia by mid-February.

NuonSoft releases Wallpaper Cycler 3.1.0.39

(PRWEB) August 22, 2005

NuonSoft has released Wallpaper Cycler 3.1.0.39, an easy to use, yet powerful desktop wallpaper manager/changer to get rid of that boring static wallpaper on your desktop. You can change the wallpaper with a specific delay or at specific times or both. Wallpapers are easily managed in multi-level categories which can have time constraints. For example: a category can be defined for wallpapers that will only be used in the summer. Categories can be linked to folders on your hard disk to automatically detect new wallpapers. A lot of attention has been given to the performance of Wallpaper Cycler. As a result, Wallpaper Cycler allows you to manage tens of thousands of wallpapers without slowing down.

Wallpaper Cycler goes much further than most other wallpaper cyclers. The powerful layout feature allows you to create your own custom layouts to be used on your desktop. Layouts enable you to show an unlimited combination of the following objects on your desktop which can be freely placed anywhere on your desktop: calendars, quotes, notes, webcams, other wallpapers, calendar notes objects and news (RSS) headlines. You can even add an object multiple times on the desktop, each with their own settings. Any combination of effects (blur, brightness, color-tone, mask, texturize) can be applied to each individual object. The effects system can be extended with 3rd party effects DLLs with the aid of the effects SDK.

Wallpaper Cycler includes an advanced random choice algorithm, can monitor your CPU load when it wants to cycle, has several types of tiling modes, can automatically calculate a suitable desktop background color, can make the icons transparent on your desktop or hide them completely, supports system wide hotkeys, has shell integration and much much more.

The new version also includes a screen saver module which shows a slide show of all your wallpapers with 40+ transition effects.

Wallpaper Cycler has three types of wallpapers: image, gradient and URL. URL wallpapers allow you to add webcams to your desktop. Wallpaper Cycler 3.0 supports much more image formats than previous versions, such as JPG, JPE, BMP, DIB, RLE, TIF, PNG, TGA, ICB, VDA, VST, JP2 (JPEG2000), JPC, PCX, DCX, PNM, PGM, PBM, PPM, RAS, ICO, ANI, EMF, WMF and GIF.
