Promwad partners with Asian chip vendors to offer cost-effective electronic designs in Europe

VILNIUS, Lithuania, 2017-Aug-04 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Promwad Electronics Design House has partnered with leading technological fabless companies in China and Southeast Asia to offer its clients cost-effective electronics product development from the center of Europe and to manufacture any batch size of new devices with priority tech support.

Promwad was one of only a few design houses in the EMEA region authorized by Allwinner, one of the leading Chinese chip manufacturers. Promwad’s engineers design electronics based upon Allwinner components and provide tech support during the entire life cycle of the designed devices:

  • tablet PCs, multimedia and portable devices based on Allwinner SoC A series;
  • TV set-top boxes with OTT and IPTV based on Allwinner SoC H series;
  • dash cameras, video cameras and action cameras based on Allwinner SoC V series;
  • onboard multimedia systems for vehicles based on Allwinner SoC T series.

Allwinner was founded ten years ago; its headquarters are based in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. In 2013 and 2014 this chip vendor was the world’s largest supplier of application processors for Android tablets.

Also Promwad became an official partner of Telink, Shanghai, and has significantly expanded its expertise in the fields of Bluetooth and BLE. This chip vendor specializes in Bluetooth and Zigbee for IoT and wearable electronics, remote controls, smart lighting and smart toys.

The engineers of Promwad have a lot of experience with the most popular chipsets of other vendors: TI CC265x, Silabs EFR32 Blue Gecko, Nordic nRF, Qualcomm/CSR10xx, and Dialog DA1458x. And now Telink TLSR826x BLE SoC has been added to this list; this system on chip has low power consumption, supports Zigbee, 6LoWPAN/Thread, and HomeKit.

Promwad maintains cooperation with the company Realtek from Taiwan and uses its chips to design network equipment from CPE – routers, gateways, WiFi hotspots to operators-side telecom equipment such as unmanaged and managed switches.

“Today the center of the semiconductor industry’s innovations and manufacture is shifting to Asia. Traditional chip vendors from the USA and Europe face growing competition from this region. Our customers demand functional and cost effective solutions to be designed at closer location such as Belarus or Lithuania and manufactured in Asia, that’s why establishing close links with Asian chip makers is a natural step for us,” says Ivan Kuten, the Business Developer of Promwad. “Namely by using such cooperation we cover our most growing capabilities in tablets, consumer gadgets, STB, CPE and multimedia devices. Now our customers in the EU and North America can create new hi-tech devices with controlled costs, tech support in English and manufacturing facilities in Europe or Asia.”

Sesame Smart Lock Accommodates New Technology

Palo Alto, CA, April 21, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – is now one of the hottest projects on Kickstarter, which has raised more than one million dollars since launch. Currently, more than 6,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Jerming Gu, the inventor of Sesame, said he wanted to bring the joy of technology to regular people with affordable prices. Sesame is also designed to accommodate the fast changing nature of technology.

In deed, the consumer electronics technology changes year by year. Any users of consumer electronic products – whether it’s a lock or a phone – they will be forced to upgrade the hardware often.

Here are some examples:
1) iPhone 4 (Bluetooth 3.0) is not compatible with iPhone 4S (Bluetooth 4.0);
2) RFID (clipper bus card) is not compatible with NFC (Apple Pay/some credit card);
3) z-wave (most old digital locks) is not compatible with Zigbee (newer digital locks);

“You might want to have a new phone every year but you may not want to construct the door every year just for a newer digital lock,” said Gu.

That’s the problem Sesame is trying to solve.

Now Bluetooth 4.2 is coming, Gu just swapped to the new version 3 Bluetooth chip in mass production.

“Also, the long-distance wireless charging technology is about to hit the market, I feel everything is changing too fast,” said Gu.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

With Internet connection capability, users can allow guests in remotely. They can also control who has access and when. To ensure safety, the Sesame app also sends out a notification whenever the door opens or closes.

Stanford Student Entrepreneur Raised $800K on Kickstarter

Palo Alto, CA, April 02, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Stanford student Jerming Gu, founder of CANDY HOUSE Inc., raised more than $800,000 dollars after his product launch on Kickstarter. Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – reached its funding goal in nine hours when first introduced. Currently, nearly 5,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Gu is a mechanical engineering master candidate from Stanford University. Originally from Taiwan, Gu is someone who usually thinks outside the box. Disruptor, troublemaker, entrepreneur, as he calls himself.

“There has got to be smarter ways to live our life,” Gu said.

Gu said he got the idea for smart lock due to his experience living in Asia where technology is relatively less developed.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

Montana Instruments Corporation announces the Cryostation Microscope, for high magnification physics experiments at 3 Kelvin!

Montana Instruments Corporation (Bozeman, MT), the world’s leading manufacturer of automated optical cryostats, announces the addition of the Microscope option to its closed cycle cryostat, the Cryostation™. Many low temperature material science experiments require high magnification optics to image the sample surface. Historically, this research has been limited to using objectives outside the vacuum space of the cryostats and dealing with the distortions of the vacuum window. This innovation allows user to position high quality optics near their sample without any intervening windows.

The system uses a 100X Zeiss quality objective with a working distance of 310 microns and a numerical aperture of 0.9, and can be outfitted with almost any vacuum compatible microscope objective.

A previous barrier to putting high quality objectives in the vacuum space of a low temperature system is that as a lens cools, its individual optical elements change shape, the optical performance degrades, and the lens may even crack. In order to prevent this damaging distortion, and to preserve the optical quality, a patent pending design maintains the lens at room temperature. By mounting the objective inside the temperature stabilized sample chamber, once the system reaches the target temperature, any drift due to temperature changes is eliminated.

The Cryostation has become a reliable workhorse for the low temperature research community. As a closed cycle cryostat, it doesn’t require costly helium for cooling, but uses a reliable refrigeration cycle cryocooler. The system is best known for its low vibrations of less than 5nm and its rock solid temperature stability of less than 10mK. Researchers appreciate the ease of access to their samples under test, both for setup and for optical access.

Pioneers in the world of cold science automation, Montana Instruments designs, manufactures, and supports cryostat systems around the world. Visit the company’s website at www.montanainstruments.com.

Electrical Counter Has Fantasia’s For Lifting The Dimmer Control

The Electrical Counter has aimed to build a portfolio of products that deal with all the possible electrical requirements that occur in the modern electrical supply market. This has meant ranges of products, which are specific to a specific usage, are used and then installed and not something that may just do the job. The Electrical Counter has also tried to source these specific products in a range of finishes so that the consumer can get something that does the job but also fits in architecturally with the building and surrounds of the installation.

Fantasia is a company that has developed a series of ceiling fans which are great in situ and have developed a very smart brushed chrome speed controller that is perfect for the overall control of the unit. The Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to supply these brushed chrome controllers and the full range of Fantasia ceiling fans. The ceiling fan is an ideal option to reduce the temperature in any room when a full air conditioning system is either, not available, or not possible to install. It is also a great fashion statement and gives the room a feel of the Deep South of the U S A. There are a multitude of different designs of the fans some of which include a light fitting and some which do not, there is also a full range of different designs and differing materials of manufacture so it is a case of picking the one that fits the personal design required.

The switch and controllers of such fans are very important as they require a stepped speed controller in order to provide a cooling which is in keeping with the rooms requirements. The Electrical Counter stresses that the control of ceiling fans must be carried out using the correct type of controller and not a standard dimmer switch, which are totally unsuitable for the job. To this purpose The Electrical Counter are pleased to supply the Fantasia Fan Speed Controller and also the Fantasia Fan Speed Controller and Light Dimmer both of which are supplied in a brushed Chrome finish. These units are very attractive and really fit in to most rooms in the house. The brushed chrome finish is one, which fits both modern and old buildings and will look good throughout all the rooms, which it is likely to be used in.

The Electrical Counter notes that the Fantasia Fan Controller uses a 3 step system, which should provide more than adequate control of the ceiling fan. The brushed chrome switches provide an easy circular action and fit nicely on a brushed chrome face plate, it is noted that the rule is one fan per controller and the fans cannot be ganged together. The twin switch which also has a dimmer switch attached allows control of the fan and the lights from a central control. Electrical Counter offers a full range of products and is pleased to offer any advice required for the purposes of installing the Fantasia range of products.

Lamp Post Electrical Supply The Best Of Stainless Steel Electrical Fittings

Lamp Post Electrical are pleased to supply electrical fitting of every shape and requirement for the electrical market place but it is particularly pleased to be able to supply the Nexus range of stainless steel switches and sockets for the household and commercial building electrical supply fittings. Stainless steel has many advantages over other materials and the Nexus range has given Lamp Post Electrical one of the best looking as well as one of the highest quality ranges of electrical fittings on the market today. The electrical engineer can be very happy to work with this range as it produces an excellent finish wherever it is used and they can be assured that the electrical integrity of the usage will be the typical top quality product produced by the Nexus range. The Nexus range of electrical switches and sockets are produced by BG which is one of the best United Kingdom manufacturers of electrical goods in the World with a history that goes back a long way. It is this vast experience that has produced such a fine range of electrical equipment for installation on a new build or a rewire of an existing building.

Lamp Post Electrical is also pleased to note the stainless steel range of Nexus electrical switches and sockets comes under the decorative range of electrical equipment and that this statement alone shows a change that has occurred over the past few years in the field of electrical fittings. The change to decorative fittings has come about with the ability to make metal clad switches and sockets securely and safely without any fear of electrocution or electrical shock. Up until this time the amount of decorative switches and sockets in comparison to the standard safety insulated switch or socket was very small, but now there is a vast array of electrical decorative fittings and there are very many more options open to the end user. Invariably in time gone by the only times electrical switches were changed was on a rewire operation but now Lamp Post Electrical notes that it is quite usual for a change of all electrical switches and sockets to be made throughout the building on a purely decorative or design change in the appearance of the building. This is driven heavily by interior design magazines and TV.

Lamp Post Electrical is delighted with the appearance of the Nexus Stainless Steel range of equipment, which has a sleek finish with a very slim stainless cover with rounded corners. All switches are of the typical metal faced, insulated rocker design but the rocker is a gently curved design, which looks good and operates efficiently and provides no opportunity of any ligature. The advantage of this range is that it can be used in a residential or commercial operation and will look equally good in both. Lamp Post Electrical – http://www.lamppostelectrical.co.uk – is pleased to note that at the present time the price of this range of electrical fittings is very low and the prices for a complete change of electrical switches and sockets throughout a property is quite affordable.

MK Electric is one supplier that fits all these requirements and they are able to supply some of the best consumer units on the market to the exact specification required by the customer.

One example is a standard consumer unit in the MK Electric range which is supplied by Lamp Post Electrical Supplies and this is the MK K7666SP 17th edition consumer unit with basically a 16 way dual RCD (Residual Current Device) set up. This unit can easily be supplied as a single consumer unit with MCB (Mini Circuit Breakers) chosen by the electrician or Lamp Post and MK can supply the advice for the complete specification. If Lamp Post are given the specification MK will design the consumer unit to meet that specification and build it especially within the day for supply by Lamp Post Electrical Supplies the next day. The consumer unit normally requires tailoring to the needs of each individual residence and whilst there are ways in which this can be done just to cover the regulations there are a great number of advantages in setting the systems so that they meet the users exact requirements.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies can supply excellent advice along with a full range of equipment in the MK Electric Consumer unit range and they are proud to represent one of the major manufacturers of the electrical protection and power distribution systems. The MK K7666SP 17th edition consumer unit is a basic unit but the consumer unit can be used as a standard system with a dual RCD protection system covering a full range of MCBs but it is often better if some of the outlets are covered in different ways and Lamp Post Electrical Supplies can assist with all the requirements.

There is a superb range of MK Electric RCD systems that range from block units to individual circuit units. There are a range of RCBO units which usually control just one circuit. This is ideal for consumer units where the household or office want total protection but it really is essential for the individual circuits, which provide power to the safety or certain essential services. This is usually circuits such as fire and burglar alarms and equipment like freezers and refrigerators, which require secure power supplies wherever possible. There are RCBOs which can turn off with say a power cut and not turn back on when power is restored but in most cases these should be avoided in favour of the type that restore power to the circuit when power returns. There is also a range of DIN rail mounted time switches that can be fitted to meet specific remote power requirements.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies is pleased to supply any of the MK range and if the item is not on the web site an email or a telephone call will resolve the problem.

The Electrical Counter Does Its Bit Towards Switching Off The Recession

The Electrical Counter has set up its business based on providing the best quality electrical equipment for the electrical installation trade and retail customers at the best possible prices. The recession has hit the building industry exceptionally hard and it is sometimes difficult to see an end to the problems that this situation brings to the market place. However The Electrical Counter have set themselves the target of reducing their prices to such a level that will be able to supply the electrical industry at a price that is attractive to the small and large installations that are beginning to develop in the country. To do this they are working extremely closely with the best manufacturers in the electrical switch and socket business so that the aims and aspirations of the installers and end users can be fully achieved.

To this effect The Electrical Counter is supplying promoting the B G Nexus range of polished chrome electrical sockets at around 20 to 25 % of its original selling price. The typical Nexus metal polished chrome 2 gang 13 amp switched socket is selling for £3.89 per unit instead of £19.87 per unit, less than 20% of its original price. This is an ideal socket for the large office or public service building including schools and hospitals but it is also ideal for the family home and the price is such that even a cosmetic change can be considered worthwhile. The Nexus metal polished chrome 2 gang 13 amp switched socket is only one of a range of sockets in the polished chrome set and 1gang 13 Amp switched sockets can be sourced as well as a full range of shaving sockets, oven and electrical hob fittings and other fittings. This range of polished chrome sockets can be fitted throughout the building wherever required safely and securely. Electrical Counter also supply the BG Nexus polished chrome 1gang 5amp round pin switched socket for the set of table or pedestal lamp systems, these sockets can be linked together to give a ring main just for the lamp circuit which can be operated from a central switch. These sockets are excellent in appearance and very safe to use, they do retain their original appearance quite easily and will withstand the typical heavy traffic and knocks and bumps which happen regularly in a large operation or a household environment.

The full Nexus polished chrome range can be used throughout a large installation as they manufacture a switch or socket for almost every occasion and the price reductions are reflected throughout the range. The Electrical Counter is extremely pleased to be able to supply the full range of the BG Nexus polished chrome switches and sockets and can supply them either in individual quantities or in bulk and will do so with a delivery pattern to suit the requirements of the customer. Electrical Counter has a great deal of experience in the business and is only too willing to pass on that advice wherever possible so that customer and supplier can work together to the very best effect.

Lamp Post Electrical Switch From A Distance

Lamp Post Electrical have realised that one of the fastest growing areas of electrical control is that of the wireless electrical control systems and are pleased to promote the Wisedim Kit – A 4 Channel dimmable wireless switching system. Wireless switching systems are likely to become a major force in the home and in industry over the next few years as the different option become more obvious and the market develops the switches and controls, which will accept a wireless control signal. The Wisebox switching system can already control switching of lights, garage doors and water features as well as a host of other options around the home and garden and Lamp Post Electrical has been very pleased with their supply of this item and the Wisedim Kit is a good extension of the market range.

The Wisedim Kit is as the name suggests a wireless dimmer system and contains a receiver that uses 4 channels each independent of the next and rated at 700 watt each, which are all capable of dimming a separate lighting circuit. The kit is easy to install and can therefore act as the perfect replacement to your traditional dimmer switches around the home. The system has the ability to remember the previous setting so when switched on again will return the lighting system to the previous levels of light. The system can also be used as a switching system on any of the independent channels so that it can be used with LED or fluorescent lighting fittings, which are not dimmable. Lamp Post Electrical has been particularly pleased with the remote key fob which is used to control the system as this is easy to carry and very easy to operate and has the back up of a wall mounted switch with seven switches of which four operate the individual circuits and the other three work on the functions of two circuits on, four circuits on or all circuits off.

Lamp Post Electrical have noted that the wisebox kits allow a simple dimming system that can be operated from the comfort of the armchair and will allow a completely different approach to lighting within the home. This system now allows the user to use light as a decoration as well as a system of being able to see what you are doing. Certainly the system can be changed from a reading lighting requirement to a comfortable level for listening to music or watching the TV but now it is possible to use coloured lights to paint the room so that the ambience meets the time of the day or the mood of the user. This may sound a little strange but a person’s mood changes during the day and it has been found that the strong active lighting systems that match the early morning activeness recedes during the day as the person’s body prepares for rest and the lighting systems change accordingly then Wisedim allows this to be achieved from the armchair.

Lamp Post Electrical have been delighted with the Wisedim system and encourages the reader to look at their web site to get a full view of the system and if there are any queries to send them an email or give them a call and work out just what can be achieved.
