    Colorado Springs, CO, November 03, 2018 --( Altia and Cypress Semiconductor Corp. have collaborated on a new automotive instrument cluster graphics solution that delivers functional safety. Altia and Cypress will demonstrate the instrument cluster at the 2018 Electronica trade show from Tuesday, November 13 to Friday, November 16 in Munich. The demo brings together key functional safety technologies from Altia and Cypress which provide a complete, ISO 26262-compliant development solution for automotive applications.

    The new cluster demo features a reconfigurable digital instrument cluster running on a Cypress Traveo™ S6J3200 microcontroller (MCU) with a 1280x480 display. The demo also employs a Cypress’ Semper™ NOR Flash memory, which ensures that the instrument cluster has instant-on access to graphics. During demo operation, users can inject single-bit errors into the Flash memory array to demonstrate maximum reliability with the Semper NOR automatic Error Correction feature. When the Altia Safety Monitor detects a corrupted bit on a safety-critical telltale, a warning message is displayed.

    The Altia user interface development tool suite was used to create the graphics for this cluster demo. Developers used Altia Design, a WYSIWYG user interface editor, to integrate a variety of graphic assets into the cluster model. Altia DeepScreen was then used to generate production-ready C code that is architected to take full advantage of the on-chip resources of the Cypress Traveo MCU. Safety-critical objects in the HMI are monitored and confirmed by the Altia Safety Monitor. The Altia Safety Monitor is an ASIL B-compliant embedded software solution which addresses ISO 26262 requirements in the HMI by monitoring safety-critical objects and confirming correct display of functional safety content. It is seamlessly integrated with HMI applications during Altia DeepScreen code generation and uses a specialized component of the hardware to achieve minimal load on the CPU.

    “Altia Safety Monitor is a Safety Element out of Context (SEooC) which is developed using ISO 26262 ASIL B-compliant standards. It is a low-cost ISO 26262 safety solution that saves time on development, integration and testing of mission critical systems,” says Michael Hill, Altia Vice President of Engineering. “This efficient and robust software is designed into numerous production instrument clusters.”

    Cypress’ Semper NOR Flash is ASIL B-compliant and ASIL D-ready, meeting ISO 26262 standards for automotive functional safety. Cypress architected the Semper family specifically to meet the ISO 26262 standard, using an Arm® Cortex®-M0 processor to enable safe boot, processing of complex embedded algorithms, and functional safety diagnostics. The memory device was designed with Cypress’ EnduraFlex™ Architecture, which simplifies system design by enabling a Semper Flash device to be divided into multiple partitions. For frequent data writes, a partition can be configured to deliver up to 2.56 million cycles for 1Gb parts, while for code and configuration storage, a partition can be configured to retain data for 25 years. The Semper family also supports demanding instant-on applications with up to 400 MBps of read bandwidth.

    “Our collaborations with Altia on instrument clusters build on our Cypress 3.0 strategy to provide our customers with as many proven resources as possible to build innovative systems,” said Rainer Hoehler, Vice President of the Flash Business Unit at Cypress. “Functional safety is a critical requirement in automotive applications, and this demo with Altia shows how our Semper NOR Flash can protect against catastrophic failures when corrupted data is introduced into a system.”

    Visitors to 2018 Electronica can check out this combination of Altia and Cypress functional safety technologies in at the Cypress Semiconductor Booth in Hall C5, Booth 446.

    New York, NY, November 03, 2018 --( Recently, the 17a-4 electronic records request is causing serious problems for small FINRA firms. Particularly, when they’re asked for a sample data set that can range from Word docs to scanned records, emails, databases or even systems state for disaster recovery. The firm then has to login to their 17a-4 archive, download this data to a disk and hand it over to the regulator on the spot.

    The problem is, many firms’ electronic records are now so dispersed that gaps often appear in their archive or certain data simply isn’t included because the tech department makes changes such as adding new employees without compliance knowing.

    Therefore, before putting in place a 17a-4 Remote Data Archiving solution as part of the FINRA designated third part (D3P) obligations, it's important the firms know a few tricks to help them automate the archiving of electronic records to close these gaps.

    Centralizing 17a-4 Data Archiving:

    When it comes to achieving SEC rule 17a-4, it's important to understand the basics of what’s expected. Despite all the confusion surrounding data compliance today, FINRA firms simply need to accomplish three things: (1) Archive data relating to books and records, emails and systems for disaster recovery, (2) store this archive with a designated third party for seven years and, (3) make sure this data can be made available to regulators during an audit. Doing these three things will solve 90 percent of a firms data compliance worries, the rest is just the proper procedures and documentation of the above.

    Firstly, firms need centralize their books and records before they archive them with their FINRA D3P. For example, when using cloud storage such as Dropbox, OneDrive or Google Drive, it's best to use the sync folder option as the default save for all registered. This option, included with all cloud storage products, places a local folder on each computer that is used to save electronic records created by each person in the firm which are then saved in the same cloud folder. By doing this, all data for 17a-4 retention is stored centrally which AdvisorVault can easily make compliant in one step.

    Furthermore, this sync folder can be used to centralize the storage of other important data that must be archived to the designated third party for 17a-4. Such as scanned records, client database backup dumps or exports from the CRM, while a at the same time, helping firms create a truly compliant paperless office with access to electronic records to anyone, from anywhere. While in the end, keeping compliance officers and auditors happy.

    To automate email archiving for 17a-4 records retention and supervision, use cloud email hosting from Office 356 or Gmail but with the journaling feature enabled. Journaling automatically forwards all incoming and outgoing emails from the cloud provider which are then retained for seven years in their original format; the two critical things regulators want to see. Furthermore, if any email new accounts are added, journaling automatically captures them in real time, without the need for compliance or tech support to manually add them into their 17a-4 archive.

    Finally, to automate disaster recovery as part of FINRA’s business continuity planning requirements, ShadowProtect is a good option to schedule full image copies of physical or virtual servers. These images are then transferred to remote 17a-4 storage each time they are created. The key here for disaster recovery is that any version of a server image can be booted or run directly from the cloud for immediate access. This in turn to helps businesses minimize downtime since their physical servers wont be up during a disaster. As an extra measure, ShadowProtect allows for granular restores of individual files or database if needed during recovery.


    Small FINRA firms are having problems today with the 17a-4 electronic records request because gaps often appear in their 17a-4 data archiving process. The solution is to centralize data before it's archived by using the cloud sync option, journaling and ShadowProtect so that their D3P has one area for archiving and retention of data as required by rule 17a-4, in the end the compliance officer will be able to download anything requested by the regulator when they arrive for the regular electronic records request.

    About AdvisorVault:

    AdvisorVault, designed for small firms, is the only FINRA designated third party provide (D3P) who has created a complete solution for 17a-4 data archiving. For one flat monthly fee, we ensure the remote backup, retention and supervision of all electronic records for 17a-4 with full disaster recovery as part of the business continuity planning requirements.

    Tempe, AZ, November 05, 2018 --( Menlo Group Commercial Real Estate, a boutique commercial real estate firm in Tempe, Ariz., celebrated its 10th anniversary this October.

    The firm was founded by brothers Tanner and Grafton Milne in 2008 - right before the economy sunk into the Great Recession. Menlo Group persevered through months without earning a profit, motivated by the desire to better serve clients. The company has since become a leader in the Valley’s industrial, dental, medical and professional office markets.

    “Over the past 10 years, we’ve watched the market expand to the vibrant economy we have today,” said Tanner Milne, president of Menlo Group. “We’ve seen our clients expand their businesses in terms of number of employees and locations, and it’s exciting to have played a role in their growth and success.”

    Menlo Group’s ability to serve clients is enhanced by the development of the company’s Ideal Space Navigator™ and Ideal Outcome Navigator™. Crafted by company leadership, these unique tools guide advisors and clients throughout the transaction process, ensuring all clients receive the same great service.

    The company’s clients also benefit from the efforts of the team’s transaction managers, who hold Arizona Real Estate licenses and help facilitate each deal. Menlo Group currently has three transaction managers to support the company’s ten advisors. A three-person office staff rounds out the team.

    The growing team at Menlo Group created the need for a permanent headquarters. The firm occupied five different offices, including a space above a piano studio, before purchasing a building in Tempe, Ariz., near Broadway Rd. and the AZ-101 Loop. After extensive renovations, team members moved in to the space last year. They have found the modern office space provides an environment that energizes team members and fosters collaboration between team members, clients and vendors.

    “Our headquarters has given us a permanent home and enables us to show how far we’ve come,” said Lisa Ingram, senior transaction manager who has been at Menlo Group for seven years. “We’ve worked hard over the years to get to where we are today, and we look forward to continuing to innovate to better serve our clients.”

    Indianapolis, IN, November 05, 2018 --( eWireless™, a pioneer in interactive and strategic public WiFi solutions today announced their first line of original cloud managed Wireless Access Points engineered to interact with consumers.

    Since 2002 eWireless has primarily focused on deploying and managing WiFi networks through their proprietary cloud-based management software. With the capacity to manufacture their own equipment eWireless will now offer Wireless Access Points that are purpose built to be blazing fast and with features designed to allow for the best possible customer experience and consumer engagement.

    The new line of eWireless Access Points was engineered with restaurant groups, property managers and public spaces in mind. Industry leading engagement tools come pre-built into the system to create an enhanced visitor experience. "In order to be used as a competitive tool, WiFi in public spaces has to do much more than just offer access to the internet or collect data. To be truly effective, public WiFi should be offered in a more strategic fashion and leveraged as a vehicle to help drive the brand experience. Strategic WiFi will level up customer engagement by delivering targeted marketing content to facilitate more interaction with people at the locations where WiFi is offered. WiFi is an opportunity to get a stronger connection to the customer," says Kurkowski.

    "We have worked with some great technology partners for our hardware in the past, but we felt that it was time to produce a line of our own that was designed to better meet our client's needs. We designed a line of equipment that is fast, secure, has incredible coverage and is able to drive engagement with the end-user. When our clients get better engagement with their customers, they get better brand loyalty," says Henry Kurkowski - CEO of eWireless.

    eWireless has also designed the ability for their Wireless Access points to offer three different WiFi networks at the same time. One for public use, a second WiFi network for on-site managers and a third which can be used for the IoT and systems that require a dedicated internet connection. This multi-faceted approach allows for better operations management and increased efficiency.

    One WiFi, a division of eWireless, will now exclusively use this new line of eWireless Access Points for their customer deployments. "This is one of those skate to where the puck is going to be moments," according to Henry Kurkowski. "WiFi has evolved to be a central element in the digital marketing ecosystem. It integrates well with other digital elements and creates a symbiotic relationship with a brand's existing digital assets. The future of WiFi is in its ability to connect with consumers."

    About eWireless: Founded in 2002, eWireless is a leader in the architecture, management, deployment and support of innovative wireless broadband solutions. More at

    About One WiFi: One WiFi is a cloud managed customer engagement and digital marketing company. One WiFi is a pioneer in cloud managed WiFi that enables brands to better engage with their customers. More at

    Chicago, IL, November 05, 2018 --( From the AFP Annual Conference - TreasuryXpress, the global leader in on-demand treasury management solutions today announced a partnership with Envestnet | Yodlee, a leading data aggregation and data analytics platform for digital financial services, to create a fully digitized approach to bank connectivity for corporate treasurers. The new solution will significantly reduce the time and costs associated with bank connectivity for corporate treasurers while expanding the banking reach for corporate clients worldwide.

    “After years of experience in implementing TMS', it is clear that connectivity is the most painful aspect to tackle during a project and usually causes the most delays for corporate treasurers,” says Anis Rahal, CEO and founder of TreasuryXpress. “Treasurers and TMS providers have had to rely manual connectivity protocols and onboarding processes that often result extravagant delays. Integrating Envestnet | Yodlee’s financial data API allows us to now achieve fully automated, secure, bank connectivity in a fraction of the time and cost.”

    TreasuryXpress’ latest innovation will provide PSD2 and open-banking compliant access to over 20,000 banks across the Americas, Europe, MENA, and APAC regions of the world. This expansive and fully automated reach will help corporate treasurers improve time-to-market and achieve comprehensive visibility in both existing and emerging markets.

    “TreasuryXpress shares our vision for simplifying how clients can gain access to information and we are pleased to be a part of their journey,” says Matt Cockayne, VP EMEA, Envestnet | Yodlee. “Through the integration of our single, unified, API platform into their on-demand treasury management products, customers will have access to enriched data and analytical insights.”

    The TreasuryXpress integration with Envestnet | Yodlee further expands the firm’s unique On-Demand TMS model that is characterized by instant access and automated connectivity experiences. Corporate treasurers using TreasuryXpress’ solutions will have a reliable and cost-effective on-demand alternative for accessing financial institutions that may not be on the SWIFT network or where H2H is not a viable option.

    “Digital transformation is defined by speed and the ability to collect and access data across channels. It is not defined by whether a TMS is a Cloud solution or not. It is how that solution uses modern Cloud innovation to connect to data, particularly banking data,” continues Rahal. “By enabling clients to be able to collect their banking data on the spot, TreasuryXpress has uniquely eliminated manual bank connectivity, thus finally defining the true digital, SaaS model for the 21st century.”

    About TreasuryXpress
    TreasuryXpress, the global leader in on-demand and digital treasury management solutions, has removed the cost-prohibitive and time-consuming barriers of automation for over 130+ treasuries worldwide.

    San Diego, CA, November 06, 2018 --( Wildcat Discovery Technologies, a technology company using high throughput methods to develop improved battery materials, is pleased to announce that it has been granted a patent on the use of sulfolane-based electrolytes to improve performance of lithium ion batteries containing silicon anodes.

    These novel electrolytes were developed under a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), in which Wildcat was an award recipient under the 2013 Vehicle Technologies Program Funding Opportunity Announcement DE-FOA-0000793. The goal of the project was to develop novel non-carbonate based electrolytes for silicon anodes. The use of silicon anodes will enable substantial improvements in energy density at a reduced cost relative to today’s lithium-ion batteries, but their commercial adoption still requires improved electrolytes.

    Wildcat’s CEO, Mark Gresser, commented, “We’re thankful to be included in this promising effort and appreciate the DOE’s confidence in our unique high throughput approach. We look forward to our next DOE grant opportunity to accelerate the discovery of better battery materials.”

    Wildcat used its unique accelerated development method to prepare and evaluate over 4,000 unique electrolyte formulations during the year-long effort. Wildcat’s ability to rapidly prepare and test thousands of electrolytes enabled its scientists to evaluate a large number of new additives in its quest to find a noncarbonate electrolyte formulation that outperforms FEC-based electrolytes when cycled in full cells with a silicon anode.

    If interested in testing or licensing Wildcat’s new electrolytes, please contact the company for additional information.

    Washington, DC, November 06, 2018 --( LePrix, the leading e-commerce platform connecting online shoppers with over 500 designer consignment stores around the world, has launched the first business-to-business (B2B) online wholesale auction marketplace called the LePrix Wholesale Auction. LePrix, a technology-enabled marketplace platform for secondhand designer consignment and vintage boutiques, has amassed the largest combined collection of pre-owned, authentic designer handbags including Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Gucci in the resale industry.

    According Elise Whang, co-founder and CEO of LePrix, the resale of fashion industry is $25B and is projected to double in the next five years as recently. The secondhand online sales are expected to grow 24x faster than retail as millennials look for more sustainable shopping habits. Brick-and-mortar resale stores are growing at 8% annually in the U.S. and are working with platforms like LePrix to keep pace with the growth of online sales of secondhand items. There are over 12,000 resale businesses in the United States that sell used designer clothing, bags and accessories and 40,000 globally.

    As a result of partnering with hundreds of designer resale and vintage stores, LePrix’s wholesale channel is able to provide pre-verified resale businesses access to sell and purchase authentic secondhand designer items from other resale businesses online at deeply-discounted prices. Resale stores can now streamline inventory efficiency and expand their sales in-store and online on LePrix.

    “The wholesale business started organically from our network of store partners who started to liquidate and buy from each other on,” says Whang. “We found out that many of our partners were traveling outside their local area and sometimes internationally to source more inventory for their consignment store. So we thought, why not make this process more efficient with our platform. It’s a win-win for the entire industry.”

    The LePrix Wholesale Auction only allows licensed resale businesses to place bids on secondhand designer products from other resale businesses including designer resale stores and auction houses located in the U.S. and abroad. The company pre-verifies each secondhand wholesale seller which includes requiring best-in-class authentication processes and guarantees on authenticity. Each auction usually lasts for only three days. Each month, there are over 50,000 units of inventory (or $50MM in merchandise value) available for wholesale purchase. The company sets out to expand its wholesale network aggressively in the next twelve months to include more resale sellers and buyers.

    About LePrix
    LePrix is an e-commerce platform that provides online shoppers with instant access to a curated network of designer consignment boutiques. LePrix currently features over 500 designer resale stores across several countries. LePrix’s mission is to innovate the resale store industry by helping online customers discover the finest secondhand designer resale stores around the world which in turn makes pre-owned luxury shopping safe and sustainable for all.
