6  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Development Platform released for Cortus APS Processor IP Cores on: June 03, 2015, 05:29:29 AM
Montpellier, France, 3rd June 2015 – Cortus, a technology leader in low-power, silicon-efficient, 32-bit processor IP, announced the availability of a Development Platform for Cortus’ APS processor cores today. The Cortus Development Platform comprises a board based on a Xilinx Spartan-6X75, the Cortus Eclipse IDE and Cortus GCC toolchain. The board includes an I/O footprint compatible with the Arduino Due enabling the wide choice of Arduino Due-compatible shields to be used to extend the platform.

Software development is a major part of the development of a system-on-chip (SoC) or an ASIC with an embedded processor. Cortus 32-bit processor IP cores have been designed from the outset for embedded processing applications based on coding in C or C++. The APS cores are a volume-proven basis for a wide range of applications including smartcards, video processing, smart sensors, touchscreen controllers, wireless, security, industrial control and Internet of Things (IoT). The new platform enables software developers to rapidly develop drivers and to integrate software and hardware before the SoC design is prototyped.

The Cortus FPGA board is based on the Xilinx Spartan-6 X75 and includes 1 Mbyte synchronous SRAM as well as a 32 Mbit SPI flash memory. The flash memory holds the FPGA configuration and can also be shared to hold the application software. A 10/100 Mbits/s Ethernet transceiver PHY is connected directly to the FPGA and is fully compatible with the Cortus 10/100 Ethernet MAC IP block. A USB interface provides a JTAG interface fully compatible with Cortus development tools under Windows and Linux. Additional I/O connectors enable the DDR2 memory to be up to 512 Mbytes.

“Developing drivers, porting software and validating the HW/SW interface is one of the key time-to-market challenges of developing SoCs with embedded processors”, said Mr. Christopher Kopetzky, Vice President of Engineering at Cortus. He adds, “The new platform combines Cortus’ proven SW development tools with the ability to extend the board through Arduino Due-compatible shields and DDR2 memory.”

With an APS23 requiring 19% utilisation and APS25 requiring 29% utilisation the Cortus platform provides ample capacity for all APS cores. The capacity of the Spartan-6 X75 is sufficient to allow multi-core systems to be emulated on the FPGA board. The ability to extend the memory can be used to include a USB 2.0 PHY in combination with a Cortus USB 2.0 controller in order to create a prototyping platform for embedded Linux systems. Furthermore the platform can incorporate IDEs from Cortus’ partners as an alternative to Cortus Eclipse.

Cortus licenses a range of low power, silicon efficient, 32-bit processor cores supporting a range computational performance and supporting different system complexity. The cores start from entry-level 32-bit cores suitable for upgrading 8-bit cores to cores supporting caches, co-processors and symmetric multiprocessing systems. They share the simple vectored interrupt structure, which ensures rapid, real time interrupt response, with low software overhead.

All APS processor cores interface to Cortus’ peripherals including Ethernet 10/100 MAC, USB 2.0 Device and USB 2.0 OTG via the efficient APS bus. The Ethernet MAC allows the chosen physical interface to be connected using either the Medium Independent Interface (MII) or Reduced Medium Independent Interface (RMII). Flexible memory interfaces with two independent DMA channels enable system design to ensure low CPU overhead reception and transmission without any danger of frames being lost. Hardware address filtering enables a single interface to respond to multiple MAC addresses.

Cortus will be exhibiting at the 52nd Design Automation Conference (DAC) in San Francisco, California from 8-10th June 2015 at Booth #2503

About Cortus S.A.S.:
Cortus S.A.S. is a technology enabler for rapidly growing applications including Internet of Things (IoT), wearable electronic devices, smart sensors and security.

Southampton, 2nd June 2015 – Some of the UK’s most entrepreneurial university students and graduates are set to be honoured this week (June 4) as SETsquared holds its annual Student Enterprise Awards at St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton.

As part of the event student and graduate businesses from Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey are in the running to win a fully funded trip to America to help them develop their ideas for market in the USA.

The awards evening is hosted this year by the University of Southampton and run annually by SETsquared, a partnership of the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey which helps entrepreneurs and start-ups to grow.

Awards will be given on the night for ‘Best Student Enterprise’, ‘Best Graduate Enterprise’ and ‘Game Changer Social Enterprise’. In addition, one lucky entrepreneur or business will win the chance of a lifetime in the form of the Grant Thornton Entrepreneurial Excellence Award. The winning business, selected by Grant Thornton in Southampton, will get a trip to the US for up to two of its team to gain insight into developing a business for the stateside market.

Among the companies in the running for the Grant Thornton award and set to be honoured on the night are:

From The University of Bath
• Pasta Pit-Stop – a restaurant aimed at ‘Generation Z street food’ diners, fusing a lively, themed bar with a self-service eating area.
• Office Pantry – a graduate start-up that delivers super foods to offices.
• Ordo – the company has developed an app called Ordable which allows you to browse, order and pay for food and drinks at restaurants using your smartphone. The iBeacon technology behind it means the app can micro-locate smartphone users indoors and even assign them to a table.

From The University of Bristol
• Filthy Banana – a food business selling hot banana desserts. The business is the brainchild of students Sam and Amin, who have combined their experience in working in top restaurants and market stalls. The company has gone from strength to strength throughout the year and the pair is now looking for a permanent physical location to start pushing the company further forward.
• Idea Skateboards – a graduate business set up by Rob Owen out of his passion for skating and art. The company provides the skate community with originally designed clothing and art through working with as many artists as possible.
• The Bristol Bicycle Company – the company offers cheap and affordable bike rentals to students in Bristol who otherwise may not have the money to cycle. The company has already received funding from the Students’ Union, Bristol Hubs and Bristol City Council.

From The University of Exeter

A ‘People’s Choice’ award will also be presented on the night, as voted for by audience members.

Simon Bond, innovation director at SETsquared, said: “The number of young people going on to set up their own businesses straight from our five partner universities is increasing year on year and it’s refreshing to see so many young people being fearless and taking the leap. While the entrepreneurialism route is often perceived as a risky one, there is more help out there now for budding entrepreneurs than ever. With the right support, mentoring and access to funding there is no reason that students and graduates can’t develop their start-ups into national and international businesses.”

Norman Armstrong, partner at Grant Thornton’s Southampton office, added: “Entrepreneurship has a huge part to play in the growth of the UK economy over the coming years and is directly related to creating sustainable and dynamic communities. It’s important that all stakeholders and not just the government do all they can to help support entrepreneurship at a local and regional level. That’s why we are incredibly supportive of the work of SETsquared and why we are delighted to provide this fantastic opportunity for one of the shortlisted businesses to win a trip to the USA to further their market research.”
Max Toti, managing director and chief technology officer of Captec Ltd, will be the guest speaker at Thursday night’s event. An alumni of The University of Southampton, he is a visiting lecturer for UK technology universities on innovation, entrepreneurship and wealth creation.

9  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / AsiaInfo is launching Veris Real-Time Intelligence (RTI) on: June 01, 2015, 06:02:35 AM
Beijing/Cambridge/Nice, 1st June 2015 – AsiaInfo, China’s largest telecoms software and services company, is launching Veris Real-Time Intelligence (RTI), a powerful new real-time customer engagement and interaction engine for its award-winning Veris™ BSS product suite.

Veris RTI provides operators the capability to offer relevant promotions and customer support in real-time in direct response to the individual context of each customer based on a wide variety of factors.

Veris RTI aggregates and enriches real-time contextual information streamed from both network and BSS event sources to effect customer engagement through a variety of channels.

The RTI engine orchestrates an appropriate and immediate response to customer needs identified by interpreting information from multiple sources including billing, CRM systems, and the data network. It expands the existing capabilities of the Veris C³ contextual-awareness center, which enables operators to run real-time targeted campaigns based on the services customers are using on their smartphones. Veris RTI adds complex event processing to orchestrate an appropriate real-time response to a sequence of events from multiple sources.

For example, a low data balance (identified by the charging platform) occurring when the customer is watching a video (identified by Veris C3), could trigger an offer to the customer to purchase a day pass for the video app they are using.

The RTI engine combines Veris C3 with a new Customer Engagement Centre (CEC) which assimilates multiple data feeds to identify each customer’s context – such as the status of their billing account, current orders, recent contact with the operator’s call center or other channels, and also any activity on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook.

“Veris RTI gives operators a fully rounded view of each customer’s context in real-time, enabling the operator to respond with the right help for each individual customer at exactly the right time and through the right channel,” explained Dr Andy Tiller, AsiaInfo’s vice president of product marketing.

“Drawing on multiple data feeds, RTI is able to handle complex logic to ensure the best customer experience. For example, it might make sense to offer some customers an incentive to top up with a larger amount than usual if they are running low on their data balance while consuming data intensive services such as video; while other customers should be offered a day pass, and still others a turbo boost for higher data speeds. The relevant offer would depend not only on the customer’s static profile, but also on their dynamic real-time context.”

The speed of response capable of being delivered by the RTI engine is key to its success. “It has to be true real-time,” said Tiller. “If you are making an offer to a customer regarding a service top-up, it is vital that offer is delivered before the customer tops up anyway.

“Veris RTI is able to deliver that targeted help and support, as well as enabling marketing campaigns and offers, in true real-time, with the capability to adjust any offers if the customer’s real-time context changes. We believe that this is the most powerful customer engagement and interaction solution that has ever been offered to the operator community.”

11  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / University incubated start-ups dazzle big name corporates in new event on: May 21, 2015, 07:40:17 AM
London, 21st May 2015 – A group of universities has launched a brand-new event that aims to get university spin-outs and technology start-ups into some of the world’s biggest corporates.

SETsquared, a partnership of the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey, says that the UK economy could be boosted by large corporates adopting technologies from agile start-ups to boost their productivity, sales and innovation.

Today it held its first ever ‘Open Innovation’ event, which brought 20 of its most cutting-edge technology start-ups face to face with corporates including Barclays, Unilever and Intel. It is the first time such a large-scale event, with start-ups pitching to more than 50 corporates, has taken place. The start-ups, working across a range of sectors including healthcare, mobile technology and environment, had the opportunity to pitch the corporates on how their technologies and products could be adopted by the businesses to the advantage of both sides.

Among the technologies showcased were:
• A software platform that analyses location data by time, not distance. The technology, from iGeolise, is already being used by the likes of Zoopla and Countrywide.
• A social network based on physical interactions that uses wearable technology.
• A measurement system which checks the quality of radiation treatment.

A number of strong leads were made at the event and over the coming months some of the start-ups could enter negotiations with the corporates to sell their technologies.

Already SETsquared’s Open Innovation programme, funded by the IPO, has seen success. Ripjar, part of SETsquared’s incubation programme, has had its advanced social media analysis software used by a large banking corporate as a direct result of the programme.

Tom Griffin, CEO of Ripjar, said: “The Open Innovation Programme enabled Ripjar to form a close relationship with a global institution, which would otherwise have not been possible. We have now developed a collaborative partnership and have adapted our solution and business to meets their requirements.”

Simon Bond, Innovation Director at SETsquared, said: “The Open Innovation Showcase provides a vital link for many start-ups, as talking to companies at an early stage means the products can be refined for use and the wider market. It’s exactly what the UK economy needs, as it helps big businesses streamline and innovate by working with universities, SMEs and start-ups.”

Corporate quote
Six of the start-ups at the showcase came from the ICURe programme, which is funded by SETsquared in partnership with the Higher Education Funding Council for England and Innovate UK. ICURe is a multi-million pound pilot programme giving early career researchers at the five SETsquared universities access to up to £50,000 each to explore the market potential of their ideas, technologies and products.

12  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Miura Systems Grabs Number 3 Spot in SME Export Track 100 on: May 18, 2015, 07:43:14 AM
Stokenchurch, UK, 18th May 2015 – Miura Systems is delighted to announce that it has been ranked number 3 in the inaugural Sunday Times BT Business SME Export Track 100, as a firm with one of the fastest growing overseas sales of any small or medium sized business in the country.

Published this weekend, the league table charts, for the first time, those privately-held SMEs that have generated the most revenue from international customers over the past two years.

High Wycombe-based Miura Systems launched its first product just four years ago with a staff of less than ten people.
Since then, the firm has rapidly accelerated to become a leading provider of innovative and highly secure electronic payment devices with a focus on mobile point-of-sale (mPOS).

It now sells into around 30 international markets across five continents, and counts major payment industry players such as PayPal and Swedish mobile payment firm iZettle as customers.

Miura’s annual international sales over the past two years have grown over 250% to top £14 million, and it is rapidly approaching yet another landmark: one million units sold.

“I am delighted that Miura Systems has been placed in the top 3 of the inaugural Sunday Times BT Business SME Export Track 100. The result reflects how the imagination and innovation of the founders has not only helped define the shape of the nascent mobile point of sale device market but also captured the imagination of payment service providers across the world,” said Ian Rutland, CEO of Miura Systems.

“It is wonderful to reflect that a UK technology company is taking on and beating the major global players in markets as far afield as Japan, Australia, the US and Asia. I would like to thank our customers and staff for helping to make this happen and we look forward to building on this success in the coming years.”

Miura Systems’ success comes from its vision in anticipating the huge impact smartphones and tablets would have on the payments industry. The first users of its technology were the previously underserved businesses such as plumbers, decorators and yoga teachers, who could quickly accept card payments in a cost effective, secure and easy manner by simply pairing Miura payment devices to their smartphones. As mobile payment devices grew in popularity, international expansion and partnerships with new mPOS service providers soon followed.

Partners have been attracted not only by the sleek, consumer oriented design of the products but also the combination of unique software and hardware features that significantly reduces the total cost of ownership of Miura solutions compared to more traditional payment device providers.

The firm’s latest device, the M10, combines mobile, counter-top and contactless payment capabilities to give clients unparalleled flexibility to serve their customers wherever they are and however they want to pay.

Miura’s largest market is Europe, where the volume of chip and PIN transactions is high. But with new clients signed up in the US and Japan, future growth will certainly expand to other regions as the contactless payments revolution continues to spread.

Inclusion in the Sunday Times BT Business SME Export Track 100 recognises achievements to date and the business has the perfect platform for even stronger growth over the next two years and beyond.

Miura Systems is particularly excited about the growth potential of mPOS in developing markets where there is no legacy, fixed payments infrastructure.

About Miura Systems: (www.Miurasystems.com)
Miura Systems are the global leading provider of innovative secure electronic payment hardware to the mPOS solution marketplace. Miura partners with Independent Software Vendors and Systems Integrators to deliver platforms, expertise and services to enable retailers and acquirers to provide rich and flexible payment solutions for retail, hospitality, financial and transportation markets globally.

14  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / A Glimpse of the Future: Successful Across LSP Day in Frankfurt on: May 12, 2015, 06:46:00 AM
Karlsbad, Germany, 12th May 2015 – This year's Across LSP Day was held on May 8 in Frankfurt, Germany. Participants from 20 countries accepted the invitation of Across Systems GmbH to attend the international conference for language service providers. With their presentations, guest speakers from the industry stimulated lively discussions. The future of translation management systems and of the translation market was one the main subjects focused on.

The Across LSP Day offered the participants first-hand Across knowledge: Insight into Across version 6.3 (to be released in fall) and tips and tricks for system settings were interesting for newcomers and experienced Across users alike. Additionally, four guest speakers contributed to the conference program with their presentations. For example, the new machine translation interface between the Across Language Server and Lucy Software as well as the optimized interface to the Plunet business and translation management system were presented. Biraj Rath of Braahmam Net Solutions talked about the challenges and opportunities of the Indian translation market; Marek Gawrysiak of TextPartner sp.j, reported on how the organization Translators without Borders uses language to save lives.
