DALLAS, March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (TI) today introduced three compact DisplayPort devices that provide connectivity between personal computers and video displays. The low-power devices support data signaling rates up to 2.7 Gbps to accommodate DisplayPort and high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) speeds, commonly used to link desktop and notebook PCs and docking stations to DLP(R) projectors, computer monitors and digital TVs. (See http://www.ti.com/sn75dp129-pr.)
The SN75DP122, SN75DP128 and SN75DP129 all provide one dual-mode DisplayPort input and flexible outputs to enable connectivity between a range of devices. Dual-mode is the ability of the graphics processor unit (GPU) to transmit either DisplayPort or HDMI/DVI data over the DisplayPort signal lines while supporting the required control signals.
Flexible outputs provide connectivity options
The SN75DP129 translator has one dual-mode DisplayPort input and one transition-minimized differential signaling (TMDS) output. This device can function as a DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI dongle converter for external attachment to notebook PCs. This will enable end users to connect laptops with DisplayPort outputs to monitors with DVI inputs. The translator can also be used in applications that display PC video data on digital TVs.
The SN75DP128 is a high-performance switch with one DisplayPort input to one of two DisplayPort outputs. This device can be used in conjunction with laptop docking stations. It allows the GPU to direct video data either through the docking station connector or to a DisplayPort edge connector.
The SN75DP122 features one DisplayPort input to either a DisplayPort or a level translated TMDS output, allowing flexible connection to either a monitor or a TV. On this device, the auxiliary port can be configured as an I2C port with an integrated I2C repeater, which is required for HDMI operation.
Both the SN75DP128 and SN75DP122 support switching of the bi-directional auxiliary, hot plug detect (HPD) and cable adapter detect channels. An integrated level-shifter for the HPD line is provided, which avoids the need to use additional components. The pinouts of all three devices are optimized for easy flow-through printed circuit board layout.
In addition to these DisplayPort devices, TI offers a broad array of electrostatic discharge protection solutions and low-power video switches such as the TS3DV421, which are fully compliant with the HDMI and DisplayPort standards. They contribute to TI's broad interface product offering including families of products for M-LVDS, LVDS, CAN, RS-485 and PCI-Express standards. Please see the Interface Selection Guide for more information.
DisplayPort is a royalty-free digital video interface standard from the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). It is intended for internal and external display connections. Compared to existing standards, it offers improved audio and video performance over one cable and more compact sockets and connectors for notebook PCs and LCD displays.
Pricing and availability
The SN75DP122 and SN75DP128 are available now from TI and its authorized distributors in a 56-pin QFN package. Suggested resale pricing is $1.90 and $1.65, respectively. The SN75DP129 is available now in a 36-pin QFN package with suggested resale pricing at $1.30. All pricing is in 1,000-piece quantities.

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sunrise Telecom(R) Incorporated (Pink Sheets: SRTI), a leader in test and measurement solutions for today's telecom, cable and wireless networks, today announced RealWORX(TM) Web, the industry's most comprehensive monitoring system for RF CATV and broadband communications services. RealWORX is the most complete and cost-effective RF monitoring system available on the market today, and the only ingress monitoring system capable of monitoring above 65 MHz. The frequency band above 65 MHz allows operators to better detect laser clipping which is a largely misunderstood network condition that erodes data quality of service.
"Competition among video providers continues to heat up, which means video quality is becoming an essential differentiator," said Jeff Heynen, Directing Analyst, IPTV and Next Gen OSS/BSS, Infonetics Research. "The RealWORX monitoring system provides greater functionality and flexibility in a single system than other systems, simultaneously meeting the pressing need for CATV headend and hub site monitoring, as well as VHO and VSO monitoring for telcos."
RealWORX improves network performance and availability by alerting operators to impairments before they have serious effects. For example, life-line voice and other high-speed data related services are degraded when ingress related impairments are not identified. By constantly monitoring both upstream and downstream channel performance on a CATV system, operators can proactively identify and eliminate these often subtle impairments prior to service degradation.
This innovative, web-based platform is the only monitoring system to use a high-end lab-grade spectrum analyzer, making it possible to detect and capture extremely low level RF impairments like transients, CPD and noise floor degradation, which are invisible to competing systems.
RealWORX constantly monitors digital and analog measurement parameters storing these results as historical data. Special graphs display the measurement deviations over time. In-depth views allow individual channel results to be displayed graphically over time. In addition, a unique dashboard provides overall health status information for each node, while the node status menu makes it easy for technicians to drill down and isolate individual alarm conditions.
The RealWORX web-based platform ensures that operators can control the monitoring application from any location using a standard web browser. Since RealWORX utilizes industry-standard MySQL database and XML file formats, third party applications are easily integrated.
RealWORX is immediately available from Sunrise Telecom. For sales information contact the company at email@example.com.

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- SprayCool, a recognized leader in advanced thermal management products and solutions for the military, announced today a follow-on sustainment contract with the Northrop Grumman Corporation ISR Systems Division to provide additional SprayCool liquid-cooled chassis for the Air Force Airborne Signals Intelligence Payload (ASIP) program.
The additional SprayCool chassis are being procured to support operational sustainment of three systems installed on the Air Force's U-2 Dragon Lady high altitude surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft. The 20-slot VME chassis will support from 400 to 1,200 watts of electronics processing power.
The patented SprayCool two-phase liquid-cooled enclosure is unique in its ability to control the operating environment by maintaining optimum temperatures for a variety of computing and power electronics in the chassis. SprayCool's ASIP chassis are critical because the electronics operate in a tightly controlled environment that requires modulating between heating and cooling throughout the mission. The resulting controlled operating environment provides improved electronics performance and increased reliability over other enclosure configurations. Fundamentally, it is SprayCool's advanced thermal managed chassis that enables the installation of the U-2's high performance ASIP sensor in unpressurized sections of the aircraft.
"This follow-on contract with Northrop Grumman is a direct result of the success demonstrated by our SprayCool chassis during the ASIP flight test program over the last year," said Matt Gerber, president and chief executive officer of SprayCool, "and we are pleased to know that the Air Force will transition the ASIP sensor to operational missions, and that our SprayCool chassis will be an integral piece of the system solution for the warfighter." Gerber added that the primary reason Northrop Grumman selected SprayCool was that the two-phase liquid cooled enclosure enables installation of their high- performance signal processors in unpressurized areas of the aircraft.
"This SprayCool temperature-controlled chassis supports the inclusion of RF, digital and other enabling electronics, and provides reliable and consistent collection of reconnaissance information at high altitude, even in unpressurized aircraft, and this helps keep ground warfighters out of harms way." said Gerber. SIGINT is especially critical in the Global War on Terror (GWOT) where intelligence in urban environments is paramount.
The SprayCool liquid cooled chassis will be delivered to Northrop Grumman About SprayCool
SprayCool (Isothermal Systems Research Inc.) is a global leader in developing electronics thermal management products and systems for military applications, using its patented two-phase cooling technology.

ANAHEIM, Calif., March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BPO Management Services, Inc., "BPOMS" (BULLETIN BOARD: BPOM) a leading full-service business process outsourcing company focused on serving middle-market enterprises, today said that an article published March 5 on NYTimes.com' featured the company's hosting services for middle market enterprises, which enable these businesses to save on their information technology expenditures by keeping their documents and data on BPO Management's servers.
The article by New York Times writer James Flanigan said, "The technological and business trends now favor the total outsourcing of a company's data -- all the records and paperwork, digitized and stored under various degrees of confidentiality, in data centers provided by small firms like BPO and large ones like I.B.M. and Google."
BPOMS Chairman and Founder Patrick Dolan explained in the article that a client company with $100 million in annual revenue, for example, spends about $7 million a year on information technology and back office functions such as accounting, human resources, document management and other administrative functions to support the enterprise.
"We can reduce that cost by 25 percent," he said, "which could add almost $2 million 'to the customer's bottom line.'"
"BPO can achieve such cost savings," he adds, "because it spreads its expenditures for software and servers over 400 customers and, therefore, has a lower unit cost," the article said.
The article explained that small and medium-sized companies can use BPO Management Services to outsource a variety of their accounting, human resources and other administrative functions that currently take up their manpower, executive resources and divert attention away from core competencies.
"You don't need to have programs stored in your computers and files," Mr. Dolan said. "We can take it all in one of our servers," which are in Pearl River, N.Y., the article reported.
The article also noted that BPOMS, which was founded in 2005, has 180 employees, annual revenue in the tens of millions and last year raised $20 million in two private placements of its stock.
It quoted Dolan as saying, "I'd like BPOMS to do for companies in the $10 million to $100 million range in revenues what Accenture and I.B.M. do for the Fortune 500 giants."
About BPO Management Services, Inc.
BPO Management Services (BPOMS) is a business process outsourcing (BPO) service provider that offers a diversified range of on-demand services, including human resources, information technology, and enterprise content management solutions to support the back-office business functions of middle- market enterprises on an outsourced basis.

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Towerstream , a leading fixed wireless Internet provider currently operating in eight major metropolitan areas, today announced it is extending its 3 Mbps promotion to the Miami and San Francisco markets during the month of March.

"We have really struck a cord with this product offering and after seeing tremendous success in Seattle, where it first debuted last month, we're now bringing it to businesses in Miami and San Francisco," said Mel Yarbrough, Vice President of Sales for Towerstream. "We believe that our 3 Mbps solution is one of best options for customers looking for a higher quality and better priced broadband solution. A big part of our continued success has been listening to the needs of our customers and providing reliable and affordable service plans rather than expecting the customer to fit into a limited menu of offerings that are typically over priced."

All of Towerstream's products are backed by its Service Level Agreement (SLA) and the ability to be up and running within a week.

SOUTH EASTON, Mass., March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pressure BioSciences, Inc. ("PBI") today announced that Matthew B. Potter has joined PBI's senior executive management team as Vice President of Sales. Mr. Potter brings with him nearly twenty years of experience in sales and sales management at a number of leading life sciences companies. Mr. Potter will oversee PBI's seven US-based, regional sales directors and will be responsible for driving the Company's commercialization of its novel and patented pressure cycling technology (PCT) product line.
Mr. Richard T. Schumacher, PBI's Founder, President, and CEO stated: "This is an important and exciting time for our Company, as our efforts in 2008 are clearly focused on both the development of market awareness for PCT and on the expansion of our small but growing customer base. To this end, we believe that Matt's background and management style is a not only a great fit with our team, but should also help to accelerate our PCT commercialization plan. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have someone of Matt's caliber join our management team."
Mr. Schumacher continued: "In addition to bringing significant sales and sales leadership experience to PBI, the hiring of Matt allows Dr. Nathan Lawrence, who previously led both sales and marketing, to focus all of his efforts on marketing, collaboration support, distribution outside of the United States, and liaison activities between collaborators and our scientific and engineering teams. This new focus for Dr. Lawrence will allow us to align our sales and marketing efforts in a manner that supports our Company's transition to a fully commercial operation in 2008."
About Matthew B. Potter
Over his career, Mr. Potter has been a Sales Manager at Pharmacia Biotech; National Sales Director at Visible Genetics; Director, Sales and Marketing at MicroCal, LLC; National Sales Manager, Key Accounts -- Pharma at Qiagen, Inc; and Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Abcam, Inc. Before his transition into sales, Mr. Potter was a researcher at the Worcester Foundation for Experimental Biology. Mr. Potter holds a BA in Biology from Clark University and an MBA from Assumption College, both located in Worcester, MA.
Mr. Potter commented: "In over 19 years of selling products into the research marketplace for the analysis of nucleic acids, proteins, and small molecules, one issue -- how to achieve high quality extraction of bio- molecules prior to analysis -- nearly always rose to the top. This was always a key issue, and to that end, I believe strongly that the PCT Sample Preparation System answers many of the sample preparation problems that researchers encounter, and offers unique advantages to customers looking to extract DNA, RNA, proteins, and small molecules from a wide variety of biological samples. PBI has a dedicated and talented group of people throughout the organization, and I look forward to working with them -- and in particular our newly hired field sales organization -- to drive this technology into the marketplace."
About Pressure BioSciences, Inc.
Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (PBI) is a publicly traded company focused on the development of a novel, enabling technology called pressure cycling technology (PCT). PCT uses cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient and ultra-high levels (up to 35,000 psi and greater) to control bio-molecular interactions.

TORONTO, March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sirit Inc. ("Sirit") (TSX: SI), a leading provider of radio frequency identification ("RFID") technology, announced today a collaboration with Microsoft Corporation to bring near field communication ("NFC") and contactless support to the Windows Mobile(R) operating system. By leveraging Sirit's embedded software and technology, the companies aim to speed the adoption of NFC and contactless technology in Windows Mobile powered smartphones and the development of Windows Mobile powered NFC applications.
NFC is expected to have a significant impact on mobile phones and devices as well as consumer electronics. Leading analysts predict that up to 1/3 of all mobile phones will be NFC-equipped within the next 3-5 years which will enable mobile phones to operate as electronic wallets, electronic tickets and access control devices.
To date, a significant barrier to the rollout of NFC devices and applications has been the lack of readily available support for NFC and contactless in embedded operating systems. To overcome this barrier, Microsoft intends to develop application programming interfaces (APIs) and other native support in the Windows Mobile operating system for NFC and contactless technology, thereby providing original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and applications developers with a consistent and easy-to-use platform for developing NFC devices and solutions. Microsoft will use Sirit technology and expertise as an important part of its development and testing program.
"As a Sponsor level member of the NFC Forum, Microsoft believes in the significant benefits that NFC and contactless technology bring to the wide range of devices powered by the Windows Mobile operating system," said David Turner, Director of Mobile Communications Business at Microsoft. "Sirit demonstrates NFC expertise and technology, as evidenced by their work helping OEMs bring NFC products to market. We plan to utilize this expertise and Sirit's NFC software technology to bring NFC and contactless support to the Windows Mobile operating system.
"The Windows Mobile operating system is at the heart of a broad range of devices that will be enhanced by NFC and contactless technology," commented Chris Leong, Vice President, NFC and Contactless, Sirit Inc. "We are pleased that Sirit's technology and expertise will help bring NFC and contactless to Windows Mobile powered smartphones. We look forward to utilizing the expertise and knowledge we develop in this collaboration to help Microsoft's customers and partners develop NFC and contactless devices, applications, and solutions."
Sirit welcomes inquiries from any OEMs or service providers seeking to create NFC and contactless devices, applications, and solutions. Please contact Chris Leong, VP NFC and Contactless at Sirit at email@example.com or +1-646-321-6020, for more information.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- McAfee, Inc. today announced that it has secured a multi-year enterprise license agreement (ELA) with the Department of Defense (DoD) in partnership with En Pointe Technologies and CDW-G. Combined, the offerings will provide DoD with McAfee(R) VirusScan(R) Enterprise and McAfee AntiSpyware Enterprise solutions, which will be integrated with an existing DISA investment in McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention security -- an integral component of DISA's award-winning Host Based Security System (HBSS). HBSS is the largest IT security deployment within the DoD.
"The federal government takes cybersecurity and security risk management very seriously," said Mike Carpenter, senior vice president of public sector for McAfee. "We applaud the DoD's proactive response to growing online threats. The level of trust placed in our company, and our integrated solutions is truly humbling. We are honored to support the public sector's critical security needs, and we will continue to expand our leading role in supporting its national security objectives."
"Information security is both a technology issue as well as a procurement challenge," said Ben Bourbon, director of Department of Defense sales for CDW-G. "These SmartBuy/ESI procurements underscore that federal IT security professionals -- when empowered by efficient, cost-effective contract vehicles -- will move quickly to apply industry-leading security standards to federal agency IT infrastructures."
McAfee's sales management team worked closely with En Pointe and CDW-G to finalize the deal under the GSA SmartBuy/DoD ESI contract. The Department of Defense will use McAfee tools to provide multi-layered threat protection for more than five million host platforms at DoD installations worldwide. This award will leverage existing DoD investments in McAfee under HBSS, as well as SCRI (Secure Configuration Remediation Initiative) programs to provide the US military with integrated capabilities including anti-virus, anti-spyware, host intrusion prevention, remediation, and security policy auditing.
"There's no greater validation for McAfee and En Pointe Gov than having the U.S. government select our products and services to secure its own desktops," said Kevin Schatzle, senior vice president of En Pointe Gov Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of En Pointe Technologies. "I was very impressed with McAfee's end-user team who worked very closely with us to finalize the deal. We're looking forward to expanding our relationship with McAfee and the federal government."
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise provides government organizations with superior, comprehensive threat protection for every system and at every level -- from desktops, file servers, e-mail servers, and Internet gateways, to remote and wireless devices. McAfee AntiSpyware Enterprise uses unique on- access scanning to identify, proactively block, and safely eliminate spyware and other potentially unwanted programs. McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention is the only solution that preserves your desktops and servers with signature and behavioral protection, and a system firewall.

GERMANTOWN, Md., March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite solutions and services, announced today that it has signed MicroCorp, Inc. to be a certified reseller of HughesNet(R) broadband satellite business services in the US.
HughesNet business services address a key need of many companies operating in rural areas -- access to cost-effective broadband where neither DSL nor cable is available, and T1 access is prohibitively expensive. And for those businesses that have terrestrial broadband access, many in even urban areas do not have a viable backup solution in place when their landline connection fails, costing them money and customers. Now business customers purchasing telecom solutions from MicroCorp's network of more than 1,500 agents, system integrators, and VARs will have access to high-speed data services throughout the US, as well as back-up services, using HughesNet broadband satellite services.
"Adding HughesNet to our telecom service offerings highlights our commitment to bringing our channel partners the most advanced solutions available so they can better service their end customers," said Brad Miehl, president and CEO of MicroCorp. "The nationwide HughesNet broadband satellite service gives our customers the ability to connect remote locations economically, and offers a robust solution to ensure that mission-critical applications stay on-line even during a landline outage."
Hughes has developed an innovative and competitive channel partner program designed to eliminate the expense and complexity of stocking inventory, managing installations, and taking customer support calls. Companies like MicroCorp can now sell broadband business solutions even in hard-to-reach areas, as well as provide broadband backup as an additional option to the landline services they offer.
"High-speed data services via satellite provide reliable, cost-effective network solutions for businesses of all types," said Mike Cook, senior vice president at Hughes. "Developing our reseller channel with premier partners such as MicroCorp is key to growing our commercial broadband service business- particularly in the dynamic and growing small-to-medium business market. MicroCorp's breadth of agents, system integrators, and VARs makes them an ideal partner and we are delighted to be working with them."
HughesNet service is delivered via a compact satellite modem connected to a small outdoor antenna at the customer site. HughesNet service is available in a variety of packages, with download speeds ranging from 1 Mbps to 2.5 Mbps, and upload speeds ranging from 200 kbps to 1 Mbps. Monthly service prices range from $69.99 per month to $399.99 per month. For more information about HughesNet satellite broadband services, please visit http://www.hughesnet.com/ .

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lithium Technology Corporation ("LTC") , announced today that it will market an advanced lithium-ion battery for pitch control systems of wind generators, a rapidly growing global alternative energy source. The ultra-high power battery, developed in conjunction with HARTING Technology Group for a 2.5 megawatt (MW) class wind power generator was successfully tested in a wind park in Germany. In just the first two months of this year, LTC has received orders for 12 wind power generator projects.
LTC's subsidiary GAIA Akkumulatorrenwerke (GAIA) teamed up with HARTING to design the 648 Wh battery consisting of 24 of LTC's 7.5Ah cells. The Companies have agreed on a non-exclusive joint marketing effort to supply the innovative back-up system to the wind power industry.
"The development of this battery and our relationship with HARTING is a significant step for LTC entering the renewable energy market," commented Dr. Klaus Brandt, chief executive officer of LTC. "We anticipate this to be a fast growing and potentially large market for lithium-ion batteries, not only for emergency power but also for energy storage overall, which is key to expanding the use of renewable energy."
LTC will develop and manufacture the lithium-ion cells and supply the battery management system, which will be assembled by HARTING using its unique connector technology. HARTING will also be responsible for marketing, sales, integration into the wind generator's electrical systems, and after sales service.
For maximum efficiency and safety, wind generators rely on a continuous adjustment of the pitch of the turbine blade to the wind conditions. In case of a power grid failure or strong winds, the battery ensures that the blades safely return to a neutral position to avoid turbine damage.
Successful testing and implementation have proven superior performance of the new LTC/HARTING battery, which is placed at the base of each of the three blades of the 2.5 MW turbine and subjected to continuous rotation, vibration and extreme temperatures. The next stage of product development will be a system for a 5MW class wind power generator. Presently, 21 of the LTC/HARTING batteries are in service in wind parks in Germany one of the countries leading the effort to use wind energy to replace fossil fuels in the generation of electrical power.
