Axzon Partners with Maxim Integrated to Develop Ultra-low Power IoT Sensor

Axzon has paired its Xerxes-I sensor with Maxim’s DARWIN family of low-power MCUs to deliver the first-of-its-kind ultra-low power IoT sensor.

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2018 / — Axzon, Inc continues to blaze the trail in the field of smart passive sensors with its Xerxes sensor which provides a configurable means to pair low-power transducers with the Xerxes' ultra-low power signal acquisition and conditioning analog front-end. To further the capability of Xerxes powered sensors, Axzon has partnered with Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. to pair Xerxes with Maxim's DARWIN MCU (MAX32660) to enable the lowest power IoT sensor with a secure, wireless UHF interface.

Xerxes enables a configurable, multi-modal sensor platform allowing as many as 4 different sensing functions on a single chip. Depending on the application, two of these sensing functions are configurable, allowing external transducers like strain gauges, pH electrodes or relative humidity transducers to be paired with Xerxes. Like its predecessor Magnus, the Xerxes family of sensors can operate in passive (battery-free) mode, harvesting RF energy wirelessly from a UHF RFID reader. However, pairing with an MCU does require the resulting sensor to be battery powered. Thanks to the ultra-low power consumption of the Xerxes sensor and Maxim's DARWIN MCU, the resulting sensor can run off a coin cell battery for years, depending on the application. Maxim's DARWIN MCU extends the capabilities of sensing by adding features like data logging, trend analysis of the sensed data and even complicated application-specific algorithms. The combined product will serve multiple sensing applications using a single solution. One example could be to measure the "freshness" of perishable produce in cold-chain applications. Another application could be for generating a secure compliance report for temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals in transit. The low power and wireless operation of the solution are attractive for a multitude of applications ranging from Industrial IoT to cold-chain logistics to asset sensing and/or tracking.

"We continue to stay committed to our vision of 'connecting the unconnected' through organic innovation, strategic partnerships and by expanding our product offerings in the greater IoT market beyond passive sensing. Introducing a ultra-low power, multipurpose sensor platform capable of working in concert with Maxim's world class MCUs enables our customers to serve sensor-intensive applications, expanding their market reach," says Shahriar Rokhsaz, CEO of Axzon.

"The pairing of Xerxes with Maxim's ultra-low-power DARWIN microcontrollers is a unique solution: a low-power sensor system that can unlock the invisible intelligence in the things all around us. We're excited to see how our customers will take advantage of this ground-breaking combination of low-power sensor, RF and processing technologies," said Don Loomis, vice president of the Microcontroller, Security & Software Business Unit at Maxim Integrated.

First prototypes of the evaluation board, code named 'Project Neuron' will be showcased at the Electronica trade show to be held in Munich, Germany from November 13-16, 2018.

AR Technology Engages Users 30 Times Longer Than The Average TV Ad

DesignRush discovered how immersive experiences can improve your brand identity, customer loyalty, advertisements and marketing campaigns.

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2018 / — In the times when marketing your business has become more affordable than ever, entirely new modes of advertising have emerged.

People have become insensitive to traditional ads, so grabbing their attention demands an imaginative and innovative approach. In these circumstances, experiential marketing presents a great opportunity for brands and marketers around the globe.

Experiential advertising, as the name suggests, puts emphasis on willingly experiencing what the brand has to offer. This is a giant leap forward compared to simply bombarding customers and prospects by random flashy ads that brands use to brag about themselves, with no tangible proof whatsoever.

What Is Experiential Marketing?

Experiential marketing focuses on providing real-life experiences that are actually interesting or amusing to the people they’re targeting. The point is to offer consumers a first-hand encounter with your brand or your product, instead of merely telling people what they’re about.

By doing this, you let people actually test and judge your product and participate in the advertising process.

As for the exact definition of experiential marketing, Hubspot defines it as “a marketing strategy that invites an audience to interact with a business in a real-world situation. Using participatory, hands-on, and tangible branding material, the business can show its customers not just what the company offers, but what it stands for.”

The fact that the audience willingly partakes in these activities is the reason why experiential marketing is sometimes called “engagement marketing”.

Building your image through experiential branding methods has several important advantages and can make your company stand out in the ocean of advertising clones.

These methods involve organizing events, classes, tastings, brand activations as well as other happenings that include face-to-face interaction with people potentially interested in your products.

DesignRush examined the benefits that experiential advertising can have for your brand.

Experiential Marketing Can Make Your Business Stand Out

As it was mentioned, people are absolutely flooded by all sorts of commercials nowadays. Some marketing experts claim that an average American is exposed to 4,000 to 10,000 ads daily.

Naturally, this makes them indifferent and skeptical towards all traditional forms of marketing.

By letting them experience and interact with your brand, you’ll be able to draw their attention and stand out from the crowd of brands desperately trying to reach their target market.

However, this form of marketing is becoming increasingly popular and many companies and advertising agencies are starting to use it. Namely, as much as 77 percent of marketers use it as a vital part of their brand’s advertising strategy.

This doesn’t mean it’s impossible to stick out with your campaign, but only that you’ll have to be additionally inventive when conceiving and executing it. The opportunities are endless and they’re there for your brand to make use of them.

Experiential Marketing Involves Two-Way Communication

In recent years, marketers (especially those working in digital marketing) are emphasizing the importance of understanding marketing as a sort of two-way communication between brands and customers.

Experiential marketing radically changes the way companies interact with their audience.

Of course, it’s crucial that you don’t just offer people great fun and amusement at your event or your workshop, but also to think of a creative way to associate this event with your brand or your product.

The importance of this interactive approach has been explained by many renowned educators and psychologists.

For instance, Edgar Dale used this notion as a foundation for his Cone of Experience. According to this concept, people normally remember 10% of what they read, 20% of what they hear, 30% of what they see and a staggering 90% of what they do.

This further means that people will generally have a much easier time recognizing your brand if there’s a way you can convince them to actually get engaged and do stuff, rather than watch your billboards, TV commercials and banner ads.

Experiential Marketing Can Boost Brand Awareness
Using experiential marketing is a great way to build awareness about your brand. There are multiple ways this normally happens.

First of all, a truly ingenious campaign will attract media interest. Getting proper, unpaid media coverage is the best way to spread the word about your company without spending a dime on promotion.

Furthermore, you should never underestimate the power of word of mouth. A person fascinated by your experiential campaign will be more inclined to tell a friend about it… and about you as well.

This is hugely important since 92% of consumers will trust their friends’ and peers’ recommendations more than any actual advertisement.

Finally, a quality campaign of this kind can boost your online presence as well. Although experiential marketing events happen in a real-life environment rather than the digital realm, they can still get viral.

In the era where huge amounts of user-generated content are created every day, you can be sure that folks who like your idea will share it on social media. Just make sure they’re aware that your event is branded and suggest a hashtag they could use.

You Can Build Emotional Relationships With Your Customers Using Experiential Marketing

In order to gain a truly loyal customer or fan base, it’s essential that you get people emotionally attached to your brand. You can do that by letting them try your product and see what your company is all about first-hand.

This way you can help them get familiar with your brand’s philosophy, ideas and values. In addition, by letting them partake in the advertising process you’re presenting your company as being open, accessible and helpful.

This is the first step to building an emotional relationship with the customers, which in turn boosts their loyalty.

This can be very beneficial. 82 percent of consumers claim that they always buy from brands they’re loyal to, and are generally much more inclined to spend large amounts of money on these brands or tell a friend about it.

You’ll also have a chance to get some live feedback about your product or your campaign from ordinary, everyday folks. All these actions tend to put a human face on your brand and improve its image.

Types Of Experiential Marketing

Event Marketing

Probably the most commonly-used type of experiential advertising is organizing events.

You can go for more conventional events that will serve to promote your brand, such as conferences, presentations or meetups. You have an option of actually using this event to talk about your brand to the audience, but in this case, there’s not much interaction really.

Therefore, there’s a danger that it will turn into a traditional, one-way attempt to explain why your company is the best, unlike all other companies that also claim that they’re the best – and you definitely want to avoid this.

So it’s best to make this sort of events about your industry or a certain cause, with your company being merely the sponsor and the initiator. This will leave more room for quality exchange of ideas that can create an actual memorable experience, unlike blabbering on and on about your product.

And don’t worry, people will surely remember who made the event possible.

However, you can also go for less conventional events such as parties, picnics, festivals or competitions. If you decide to do this, just make sure that the type of event you choose fits your brand.

If you organize a music festival to promote a law office, this can be interpreted as a desperate attempt to look too cool and funky, which can make a serious business seem awkward and ridiculous.

Event Marketing In Action: Sensodyne

A good example of successful event marketing comes from the toothpaste and mouthwash brand Sensodyne. Focused on the protection of sensitive teeth, the company organized an all-day event that was conceived to put emphasis on this issue.

It took place in Potters Field Park in London. The park was divided into three zones, where people could play games, take photos with a huge molar, have a dental check-up and partake in a Guinness record-breaking lesson of oral hygiene.

This way Sensodyne raised awareness about the importance of oral hygiene, provided people with amusing experiences and gained some substantial social media visibility.

Workshops And Classes

Offering your customers free or affordable workshops or classes can also generate some significant engagement on their part.

How exactly you will conceive these classes and put them to work depends on your industry, as well as the messages that your brand wants to send. Just make sure they’re related to your branch and that they involve more than just explaining how to use some of your products.

A lesson or a workshop should provide some real value for the user if you want it to be effective marketing-wise.

Workshops & Classes In Action: Lululemon Athletica

Probably the best way to explain how to make this strategy work is by invoking one of the most successful examples of experiential marketing of this kind.

Lululemon Athletica is a sports clothing retailer. Among other products, they sell yoga shirts, shorts, pants, mats and stretching straps.

They decided to give free yoga classes weekly in order to promote their business, build up their community and attract new customers. It’s a great way to engage people who are already interested in yoga but still aren’t loyal to any brand of yoga clothing.

Offering them to attend a free class and meet other people of same interests surely provoked a certain emotional reaction towards the company. A great little trick to boost brand loyalty and contribute to the wellbeing of the community.

Brand Activations

Brand activations are usually employed when a company is introducing a new product or line of products, or when an entirely new company wants to present itself to the public. The point of brand activations is to gain some initial recognition for the product and convince people to try it.

You can do this by simply organizing free tasting or samplings of the product, but in order to use the full potential of this strategy, you should probably go beyond that. Try grabbing people’s attention in a more innovative way.

Let them experience not just your new product, but everything your brand stands for. Use the opportunity to tell them the story about your business and your values.

Moreover, don’t just approach them and offer them the product. Try creating a situation in which they’d actually need your product in order to show its benefits and usefulness.

Brand Activations In Action: Tribord

Watersports equipment Tribord did just this. They created a fake drink called “Wave” and offered it to passersby.

The trick was that the can was full of sea water. What the company wanted to achieve was to evoke a sense of drowning in people who tried the drink. It was an ingenious way to remind people about the dangers at sea and the importance of quality watersports gear.

Technology-Inspired Experiential Marketing

Using highly-engaging technology to create unique experiences for consumers is definitely the future of experiential marketing.

Experiential marketing normally entails having some sort of real-life contact with the brand. But with technologies that are on the brink of erasing the border between reality and simulation, it’s possible to create a digital experience that has the same effect as any authentic physical event.

Probably the most commonly used pieces of technology in this respect are virtual and augmented reality.

You can use these to show your customers how your production process works or tell the story about your company or your products. AR can help you make super-amusing interactive catalogs, menus or even make your products come to life.

Whether it’s used to simply entertain the users or to provide them with additional info about products (or both), it’s a highly effective approach. For instance, marketing campaigns that use AR technology have an average dwell time of 75 seconds, which is 30 times more than an average TV or radio ad.

Immersive Technology In Action: City Social

A great example of clever AR usage comes from London. More precisely, from City Social restaurant.

They created an app that you can use to amuse yourself and find something out about the cocktail you’re drinking.

When you open the app and point the phone at the coaster that goes with the cocktail, you’ll see amazing 3D animations that are full of symbolism. These symbols are related either to the history and tradition of a certain cocktail on one hand or to its ingredients on the other.

Experiential Marketing Is The Future Of Marketing & Advertising

Gaining any kind of visibility for your brand has become very difficult and it won’t be getting any easier. Businesses are forced to find new, creative ways to reach people and make them interested in their products.

In this sense, experiential marketing opens a whole new world of opportunities for those marketers who are able to come up with fresh and original advertising ideas.

A well-thought experiential marketing campaign can be hugely beneficial for your brand. You can use it to appeal to consumers’ emotions in order to ensure loyalty among regular customers and recognition among prospects.

Most marketers and business owners have already recognized this. It’s just one more reason not to neglect this fact and start investing in your experiential marketing efforts as early as today.

Compare the best digital marketing agencies by expertise, cost, team size, clients and more who can create an innovative AR, VR or experiential campaign that will grow your brand on DesignRush.

Think Silicon Completes Ambitious 2.5 Year Plan with the Successful Finalization of the EU Funded GPU-WEAR Project

This worthwhile effort required a multidisciplinary design methodology spanning circuits, architectural, compiler, and API-level power efficient techniques to work in a seamless fashion.”

— Dr. Georgios Keramidas CSO of Think Silicon and GPU-WEAR project lead

PATRAS, GREECE, November 15, 2018 / — Think Silicon, a leader in ultra-low power graphics IP technology, announced the completion of an ambitious 2.5 year plan with the culmination of an array of innovative ultra-low power Graphics-Processing-Unit (GPU) IP-technology, together with a complete ecosystem of development-tools. Key highlights for the company include filing 10 international patents (six granted, four pending) and extending the sales channel in Europe, North America, Taiwan and Japan. The impressive project goals, established in 2015, resulted in numerous exhibits at major trade events such as the International Consumer Electronics Show, Mobile World Congress, Embedded World and executive speaking opportunities at the Synopsys ARC Processor Summit, Linley Processor Conference 2017, HiPEAC 2018, DATE Conference, and many more.

“To reach a meaningful impact-level of ultra-low power consumption, required by Wearable, IoT and Embedded Display devices, represents a technological challenge”, says Dr. Georgios Keramidas CSO of Think Silicon and GPU-WEAR project lead. “This worthwhile effort required a multidisciplinary design methodology spanning circuits, architectural, compiler, and API-level power efficient techniques to work in a seamless fashion. We are very thankful for the support of the European Union’s ‘Horizon 2020’ Research and Innovation Programme.”

During the Horizon 2020 program, Think Silicon achieved a variety of technology achievements including:
● Holistic power reduction techniques
The main objective of the project was to develop holistic power reduction techniques by reducing power not only on ASICs (Chip) level, but also for the entire system (Display device). To achieve this, the company developed and implemented multiple techniques, such as value- memorization, new image/texture/z-buffer compression methods, smart clock gating, power gating, and adaptive backlighting.

● Transparent “display-aware” and “QoS-aware” graphics libraries
One of the biggest challenges that graphics application developers face is the lag of transparency accessing graphics libraries. Think Silicon implemented a “Run-time system” in the GPU driver as well as a QoS (Quality-of-Service) extension to graphics APIs. In addition, the cross-platform middleware GLOVE™ has been developed, which translates at runtime, OpenGL® ES / EGL calls and ESSL shaders to Vulkan® commands and SPIR-V Shader.

As an essential toolbox for developers to develop power-aware yet still high-performance software applications for Wearable, IoT and Embedded display devices, NEMA®|SDK is a complete ecosystem of tools providing the utmost access to the GPU hardware. The NEMA®|SDK tool-box is comprised of six tools: NEMA®|GFX-API, NEMA®|GUI-Builder, NEMA®|Bits, NEMA®|PIX-Presso, NEMA®|SHADER-Edit and GLOVE™.

● Heterogeneous GPU
NEMA®|tS (tiny-small) helps to achieve an optimal combination of power-performance load balancing.

Because Machine Learning and Deep Neural Networks (DNN) are complexity intensive models that require vast processing power, NEMA®|xNN was developed to address the 1000x gap (in terms of power and/or performance) compared to what competitive solutions offer.

Think Silicon has been recognized by global news outlets including Electronics Weekly, Packt, Microcontroller Tips, Programmable Web, the prestigious John Peddie Research and many more. Additional news about Think Silicon is available online at

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 717850.

So many people are on the course to develop wrist injuries and conditions as a result of their activity at work.”

Wrist Injuries on the Job and Workers’ Compensation Benefits in PA
Thousands of Americans hurt their wrists at work every year. Many others are on the course to develop wrist injuries and conditions as a result of their activity at work.

Because of how often one’s hands are used in precise and usually repetitive motions, such as typing, at work, wrist injuries are one of the most common injuries in the workplace. For those who have been hurt at work with wrist injuries, workers’ compensation can offer a way to get compensated for being hurt on the job.

If you believe you have a wrist injury that you sustained from your work or are on the course for developing a wrist injury due to your activities in the workplace, it is important to understand what benefits you may be entitled to and how you can put forward your case to receive workers’ compensation.

Many workers each year receive workers’ compensation for hurting their wrists at work. You may very well be able to claim workers’ compensation benefits for yourself too.

Exploring Workers’ Compensation Wrist Injury Claims
Wrist injuries are part of a broad category of work-related injuries that are commonly referred to as “WMSD” injuries. “WMSD” injuries refer to those work-related injuries that affect the musculoskeletal system, such as injuries to the neck, wrist, shoulder, and back.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor, 3.7% of work-related injuries in Pennsylvania in 2015 were wrist injuries. In fact, the upper extremities, which include the wrist, shoulder, arms, hands, and fingers, accounted for over 37.4% of injuries from being hurt at work.

Wrist injuries can result from many different activities at work, whether a hit to the wrist or hand, or a repetitive motion such as typing or using a tool without rest. The wrist injury may manifest itself in many ways, from systemic conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome to other medical conditions and pains.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor, over 25% of the over 160,000 work injuries cases in 2015 were a result of overexertion. Another 19% were the result of being struck, 12% a result of a fall and 11% the result of being struck against. For a body part such as the wrist, these types of actions are especially common and easy to cause you to be hurt on the job.

Furthermore, the industries where being hurt at work happens are often ones where the wrists are used, such as for typing or controlling a machine. Of the 160,000 workplace injury cases in 2015 in Pennsylvania, 10,000 were in construction, 22,000 in manufacturing, 45,000 in education and health services, and 12,000 in business and professional services.

In many of these occupations you use your hands a lot, and so the risk of a wrist injury and being hurt at work is there, even if in each occupation it may happen very differently.

Whatever the specifics of your wrist injury, there are many options available to you in Pennsylvania to receive workers’ compensation for your injuries from being hurt on the job.

What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation is a popular and large national program that allows people who have been hurt on the job to receive monetary benefits for treatment as well as subsidization. Whether you have a wrist injury or have been hurt on the job from some other activity, it is important to speak with a workers’ compensation attorney to see what benefits you may be entitled to from workers’ compensation.

The states run their own workers’ compensation programs under certain federal guidelines and mandates. In designing their programs, states have a lot of free reign in choosing the particulars of how the workers’ compensation programs are administered.

Pennsylvania, for example, has been particularly independent and chooses to run its own state-insurance program under its own guidelines and mandates.

Pennsylvania has an agency, the CRB, which oversees workers’ compensation regulations, whether for insurance rates, administering claims, or determining eligibility.

As one example of how things may be a bit different in Pennsylvania compared to other states, Pennsylvania has a workers’ compensation state fund but, it is used usually only when there are disputes between the employer, insurance carrier, and injured employee regarding benefits and claims.

Most workers’ compensation claims in Pennsylvania, whether for wrist injury or other conditions caused by work, are paid by private insurance carriers that employers are required to pay. These insurance carriers will then charge employers premiums for workers’ compensation insurance.

While it is unlikely that a wrist injury would cause you to be totally injured or disabled, workers’ compensation is still widely applicable for almost every injury sustained as a result of one’s employment.

If you are fully disabled from your wrist injury, there may be significant compensation for your disability as well.

While there are certain conditions and requirements, as well as exclusions, if you have a wrist injury as a result of your employment, it is very possible you may be able to get workers’ compensation.

Is Pennsylvania Friendly to Pre-Existing Conditions or Workers’ Compensation?
Pennsylvania is not the most generous state for workers’ compensation, but it still ranks among the above-average states for workers compensation payments and benefits.

As a Pennsylvania resident or a person who is employed in Pennsylvania, your wrist injury is very likely to qualify you for workers’ compensation if you were hurt on the job.

In 2016, Pennsylvania ranked 17th out of 50 states for workers’ compensation programs. This was lower than its 12th place ranking in 2012. But Pennsylvania still pays 8% more than the national average for workers compensation.

Pennsylvania keeps a healthy workers’ compensation program for those who are hurt at work. If you believe you may qualify for workers’ compensation, a work injury lawyer can help you navigate the process of filing your claim.

I believe my wrist may have been hurt at work, how do I get workers’ compensation?
The general process in filing your claim for workers’ compensation benefits in Pennsylvania entails informing your employer and attempting to get their insurance carrier to process and pay out your claim.

However often times the insurance carrier will challenge your claim, whereupon you can appeal to the state government and get a hearing before a state-appointed workers’ compensation judge.

However, many workers will find they want the services of a work injury lawyer to help them navigate what can be quite complex legal maneuvers, where even a minor slip can result in severe consequences.

A workers’ compensation attorney can also help you present your case in the best possible light, significantly raising the chances of your claim being successful.

I’m ready to file a claim. What’s next?
If you believe you have been hurt on the job with a wrist injury or otherwise, and are considering filing a claim for workers’ compensation, it is worth contacting a workers’ compensation attorney to discuss your case and see what options are available to you.

At Saffren & Weinberg, our experienced team of attorneys is here to help you win your case. Call us at (215) 576-0100 to see how we can help you.
