MediaTek Labs Brings Developers Closer to Commercialization with New Development Platform

leave a comment »

-MediaTek LinkIt™ Assist 2502 delivers module-based reference design and feature rich capabilities to software development, prototyping and final hardware design of Wearables

HSINCHU, /PRNewswire/ — As part of its global developer initiative, MediaTek Labs today announced the MediaTek LinkIt™ Assist 2502 development platform. LinkIt Assist 2502 is designed for advanced developers looking for a professional environment in which to design and prototype the software and hardware for consumer-ready Wearables and IoT devices.

“Professional developers face many challenges in the lifecycle of device creation, but one such challenge shouldn’t be getting that product to a commercial-ready prototype,” said Marc Naddell, VP, MediaTek Labs. “MediaTek LinkIt Assist 2502, combined with our MediaTek Labs Partner Connect program, allows a developer’s dream to be a consumer’s reality.”

The LinkIt Assist 2502 consists of four feature-rich components: a Software Development Kit (SDK) plug-in for the Eclipse IDE, C-based application programming interface (API), a Hardware Development Kit (HDK), and a module-based hardware reference design to help simplify component integration.

The LinkIt Assist 2502 SDK puts an emphasis on features such as enhanced graphics, image decoder, vector fonts (powered by Etrump) and LCD and touchscreen support. Additionally, developers will benefit from advanced features such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) support for web services authentication, Smart Connection API for Wi-Fi configuration, a notification library for iOS and Android, and over-the-air application and firmware update capability.

The LinkIt Assist HDK is designed to build commercial-ready prototypes and delivers a complete package in the form of the LinkIt Assist 2502 development board from Seeed Studio and LinkIt Assist 2502 modules from AcSiP. The new module-based approach makes it easier to get access to MediaTek chipset technology and simplifies final hardware design for developers. The high performance development board comes with three modules based on MediaTek chipsets, including the MT2502 (Aster) SoC (for GSM/GPRS and Bluetooth 2.1/4.0) and its energy-efficient MT5931 Wi-Fi and MT3332 GNSS (GPS/GLONASS/Beidou) companion chipsets, giving developers a broad range of features in a single board. The development board also comes equipped with a swappable 240×240 16-bit color touch LCD.

MediaTek Labs was launched in September 2014 and provides developers, makers and service providers with SDKs, HDKs and documentation, as well as technical and business support. The first developer offering for Wearables and IoT was the MediaTek LinkIt ONE platform, which has proven to be very popular among the Do-It-Yourself maker community.

The new MediaTek LinkIt Assist 2502 SDK is available for download from MediaTek Labs now. The HDK and modules will ship in Q2 2015. For a full list of features and to gain access to materials, visithttp://labs.mediatek.com/2502.

leave a comment »

IRVINE, Calif./PRNewswire/ — Interush International LLC, a leading supplier of digital and cloud based software applications for the Asian market, announced that it will be the primary sponsor of the Craft-Bamboo Aston Martin Race Team’s Vantage GT3 at the 2015 GT Asia Series. Interush has been teaming up with the Craft-Bamboo Racing team since 2012 and is proud to join forces with them once again with this classic marque for the upcoming race season. The #88 Aston Martin livery features the iconic LeMans light blue base color, with accents of classic British Racing Green in a unique combination within this historic Aston Martin racing legacy. Because the number eight is considered good luck in Asia, the #88 Aston Martin is sure to bring double fortune to the team as well!

The Aston Martin Vantage GT3 has 600bhp powered by a 6 liter V12 lightweight engine. The racing chassis is made of bonded aluminum to create a very light, yet stiff structure, with a shorter wheelbase and lower engine position to enhance both handling and performance.

The GT Asia Series is in its sixth season and one of the four FIA-sanctioned race series that is part of the Asian Festival of Speed (AFOS). The GT Asia series will start on May 15-17 on the South Korean peninsula and include 11 races across five countries, with the series’ first three-hour endurance race to be held at the Sepang International Circuit in September.

Driving the spirited #88 Aston Martin will be the combination of Frank Yu of Hong Kong and Richard Lyons fromNorthern Ireland. Frank Yu brings great experience driving both the Vantage GT3 and Asian race circuits with him, while Richard Lyons is a proven championship driver of GT sports car racing. Lyons and Yu victoriously claimed a second place finish together in last year’s GT Asia Series race in Autopolis, Japan and look forward to return to winning performance in this year’s GT Asia Series.

“At Interush, we understand that it takes a full team effort to achieve great success,” said Martin Matthews, CEO of Interush. “However, this also has to start with world-class technology and the hands-on leadership, determination and skills to become a true champion. This is certainly what we expect Richard Lyons and Frank Yu will each provide driving this amazing #88 Aston Martin Vantage GT3!”

2015 GT Asia Race Series Schedule
May 15-17: Yeongam, South Korea; Korea International Circuit
June 26-28: Okayama, Japan; Okayama International Circuit
July 17-19: Fuji, Japan; Fuji International Speedway
September 4-6: Sepang, Malaysia; Sepang International Circuit
September 25-27: Shanghai, China; Shanghai International Circuit
October 23-25: Buriram, Thailand; Chang International Circuit
November 20-22: Macau, China; Guia Circuit (Special Invitational Event)

Interush will also sponsor the Craft-Bamboo SEAT Leons driven by Jordi Gene Guerrero and Sergey Afanasyevat the TCR International Series on September 20th at the annual Singapore Grand Prix on the Marina Bay Street Circuit, a notoriously difficult track that should prove to provide plenty of action for drivers and spectators alike.

International Race fans can view the series’ websites at http://www.afos.com/ and http://www.tcr-series.com/ for announcements regarding live TV coverage of the races. Interush Management, Staff and Affiliates are all eager for the start of the 2015 race season and look forward to cheering on their sponsored cars to podium victories!

BTCGaw is Paying 11% more for bitcoins than Blockchain official rate

leave a comment »

MILFORD, Delaware /PRNewswire/ — BTCGaw Inc. ( www.btcgaw.com )  is the freshest company on the cryptocurrency market, exposing a highly competitive deal for Bitcoin sellers. The Delaware-based Bitcoin trader offers 11% more that Blockchain’s official rate for Bitcoin sellers all over the world. The company’s goal is to achieve as many deals as possible, given its rocket-high budget for Bitcoin purchase under its latest cryptocurrency investment and capital addition policy.

Video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMoys5noqm4&feature=youtu.be

BTCGaw Inc. was founded in July 2014 by a former banking professional who has seen the great potential and opportunity rising out of the cryptocurrency markets and growing along with technology development. Tony Gaw, the company’s CEO, is more than optimistic about the future of cryptocurrency, while he does put an effort in keeping a balanced and risk moderated approach of his business and the money he is investing. “It will eventually go mainstream within the financial system and we’re not very far from that point, it’s only a matter of few years”, declared Gaw.

No doubt that the digital currency market is uncertain and probably way too volatile for many of the traditional investors, but BTCGaw has taken the uncertainty risk and transformed it into opportunity risk, putting it almost at the core of its business.

The company however, does not plan to thrive on currency speculation solely, but has already undertaken serious negotiations for becoming the exchange house of few major consumer goods online vendors and an important online Casino, who expressed their interest in accepting Bitcoin as payment for their products and services.

BTCGaw has the appetite and the capabilities to purchase large amounts of Bitcoin, offering a rate which is 11% higher than the official market trend setters’. The company’s offer has not come with an expiry date, but it is limited to the time the company’s capacity and target is reached – at that point, the offer will be dropped with no prior notice.

All the details related to the offer and other information about BTCGaw, together with the contact details of their Sales Team can be found at their web-site: www.btcgaw.com.
