New 2D Codes

2013/02/12

Even More 2D Codes! Han Xin Code and DotCode

TEC-IT extended the barcode support in its products with two new 2D symbologies. Both symbologies were officially released by the AIM, the association for automatic identification and mobility.

Han Xin Code

Han Xin Code

The first two-dimensional symbology is named Han Xin Code. The Han Xin symbology was developed by AIM China and is optimized to encode Chinese characters. This 2-D symbology is intended as the main 2D code for applications and paper based communication in China.

A single Han Xin Code symbol offers a huge maximum data capacity of up to 7827 numeric, 4350 ASCII or 2174 common Chinese region 1 or region 2 characters. Han Xin technology is in the public domain and can be used for free. This matrix symbology benefits from Reed-Solomon error correction (adjustable in 4 levels), offers advanced features like ECI and can be printed in 84 different sizes (square symbols which feature 23x23 up to 189x189 modules).


DotCode with 10 lines of dots

DotCode

The second 2D symbology is named DotCode. It was designed for high-speed, on-demand label printing or direct part marking with ink-jet and laser marking systems. The symbology was invented by Dr. Andrew Longacre, Jr. and is in the public domain.

DotCode with 15 lines of dots

A DotCode symbol appears as an array of dots with selectable aspect ratio; the user can adjust the overall shape of a DotCode array between rectangular ribbons and nearly square symbols. DotCode symbols grow in proportion to the amount of encoded data. While the size of a single DotCode symbol is theoretically not restricted, it’s limited to 124 lines/columns. The symbology uses error correction features, it was designed to tolerate missing, extra or poorly-placed dots without sacrificing reading integrity. Advanced features like ECI (Extended Channel Interpretation) and structured append are available.

DotCode with 26 lines of dots

Han Xin and DotCode SDK

The barcode generator SDK TBarCode V11 is the first TEC-IT product supporting these two new 2D symbologies.

TEC-IT released the TFORMer version 6.0. The label software TFORMer 6 comes with new features and general improvements for users and software developers. Give it a try!

New Functions

  • Improved User Interface
    Layout design and testing was simplified significantly. Switch between layout view, data view and preview with a single mouse-click.
  • User-Friendly Manual Data Input
    Per default TFORMer offers a manual datasource for each layout. This datasource allows the user to manually enter data in a data grid like in Microsoft® Excel.
  • Unified Datasources
    A wizard will help you to create ODBC and file based datasources (XML, CSV, TSV ...) quickly. You can also assign multiple datasources to a single layout and switch between them as required.
  • Field Bindings
    The field names used in external datasources can now be mapped to datafields in the layout easily. No renaming is required!
  • Computed Fields
    Extend your datasource with computed fields. Computed fields allow you to do custom computations like creating serial numbers, etc.
  • Datasource Parameters
    Parametrize ODBC datasources (SQL query and/or authentication) and file datasources (file name) by using so-called source-parameters.
  • Extended Barcode Support
    The 2D barcode Micro QR-Code is now supported.
  • and much more...

General Improvements

  • Filtered Data
    The data provided by a datasource can be filtered with a custom expression.
  • PDF Output
    Various problems with fonts, font-embedding, output size, watermarks (image background of a layout) and with the scaling of images were fixed.
  • HTML Output
    The HTML output now supports circles, ellipses, diagonal lines and human readable text for barcodes.
  • Microsoft® Windows® Vista® and Windows® 7 Compatibility
    TFORMer can be used with the coming Windows® 7 without any restrictions. (Tested with Windows® 7 RC!)
  • and much more...

Improvements for Developers

  • DLL, .NET and COM API
    The API was extended in order to allow the selection of the newly introduced datasources and the setting of source-parameters.
  • JAVA JNI
    A JAVA JNI API is now available for TFORMer Runtime. A source-code example showing you the use of this interface is included.
  • Security
    The size and the download time for images can be restricted via HTTP (see TFORMer.XML).
  • and much more...
