Paragon UFSD 9.0 Embedded for Smart TV Guarantees Secure High-Speed Recording and Complete Data Safety on Removable External Storage Media of any Type

First technology available to OEMs with "safe removal" and "new standby" options allowing users, in just a few seconds, to secure data and utilize NTFS, HFS+ or exFAT file systems on Android, Linux and other open-source Smart TV devices

IRVINE, Calif., July 3, 2012 - Paragon Software Group (PSG), the technology leader in mobile device and embedded system solutions, announces the release of Paragon UFSD 9.0 Embedded, the first technology to ensure complete data security when removing external storage devices from Smart TVs. Based on the industry's first and highest-performing Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology, Paragon UFSD 9.0 Embedded guarantees the smoothest, fastest, highest-quality playback and recording of HD video content to or from Smart TV devices of any platform.


Users of embedded systems such as routers, media players, smartphones, tablets or network-attached storage devices want to be free to disable removable media quickly and without having to take further actions - like clicking on the "safely remove hardware" icon, while also ensuring that the data is safe. In embedded systems there are often no built-in "safe removal" functions available. Paragon's solution to this problem is the "Standby mode" option that allows users, in a matter of seconds, and without any effort, to disconnect the external storage device, at the same time guaranteeing complete data safety.

In addition to data safety, maximum recording speeds are necessary for the ability to transfer HD-quality data to external storage media. To ensure the maximum recording speed, Linux Kernel utilizes "deferred" or "postponed" recording, writing and recording multiple changes in a single write operation to a disk or flash drive, which requires much more time than changing the data in RAM - therefore cached write operations sometimes require more than 30 seconds to get user data to the storage safely. Paragon UFSD 9.0 Embedded facilitates safe, consistent flushing of all modified structures of the file system and user data to the disk in less than 10 seconds, allowing users to remove their storage media without worrying about file system integrity.


Paragon UFSD 9.0 Embedded line for Smart TVs includes Paragon exFAT 9.0 Embedded, Paragon HFS+ 9.0 Embedded and Paragon NTFS Embedded with driver solutions for NTFS / HFS + / exFAT for Linux / Android systems. For more information: http://www.paragon-software.com/technologies/ufsd/smarttv.html

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
