myPOS Founder Christo Georgiev Announces Two Upcoming myPOS Stores in Barcelona and Paris23.10.2018 19:22Tiedote

Christo Georgiev, fintech entrepreneur and founder of myPOS, has confirmed his intention to open two new flagship stores in major European cities by the end of the year. The opening is part of an initiative to bring the product closer to potential customers, giving them a hands-on experience and a live demonstration of what myPOS has to offer. The two new stores will be opened in Barcelona, Spain and Paris, France – two of the most important markets for myPOS. “Our Spanish and French customers have always placed a tremendous amount of trust in us, and we in turn have worked hard to justify it,” Georgiev says. “Opening physical locations in Barcelona and Paris is an extension of that relationship. It’s important to test a product with your own hands before you choose to trust it, and if that’s true for TVs and phones why can’t it apply to POS terminals?” The Barcelona store will open as soon as November, followed shortly by the Paris one before the end of the year. myPOS has already ope

Active-Semi’s New PMICs Reduce Size and Increase Power Density with Leading Field Programable Technology23.10.2018 16:00Tiedote

The ACT88325 and ACT88326 PMICs are integrated field programmable ActivePMU™ power management units, also referred to as PMICs (Power Management ICs). The products are highly flexible with non-volatile memory and come pre-programmed and can be field programmed via I²C or via GPIOs for multiple applications. The ACT88325 powers up based on the preconfigured startup sequence as soon as power is applied to the input pin, whereas ACT88326 implements a Push Button Startup that relies on a customer’s interaction with, for example, a portable application like an Action Camera, Video Doorbell, Body Camera or other handheld applications. “Low external component count, extremely small WLCSP package and high configurability significantly speeds time to market and reduces PCB size and BOM cost,” says David Briggs, VP and General Manager of Power Solutions at Active-Semi. “The ACT88325 and ACT88326 are a great addition to our lineup and are specifically designed for the highest power density in SSD
