Datascan Selects Cermetek Modem Module

Cermetek's modem module CH1799A outperformed all others

MILPITAS, Calif., June 19, 2012 — "We needed a robust modem that would work in any country under adverse conditions for our new inventory scanning system. After conducting rigorous testing of modules from a number of companies, we determined that the Cermetek CH1799A outperformed all the others," said Carter Graves, Vice President of Operations at Datascan.

"Datascan has over 80,000 handheld scanners being used worldwide by retail companies doing self-inventory of their store stock. The handheld scanners need a dependable communication link to transmit back to a central database. This is accomplished with a reliable, robust Cermetek modem module embedded in the cradle for the handheld units."

"Our CH1799A modem module has been designed with a proprietary telephone line interface that provides a wide dynamic range for interfacing to any telephone line including those in remote areas in counties around the globe," states Henry Roskos, President and Chief Technical Officer at Cermetek Microelectronics. The Cermetek modem modules are designed and manufactured in Milpitas, California and shipped worldwide.

"Cermetek is proud Datascan, a world-wide leader in the scanner market, selected our modem module."
