New Barcode DLL with EAN/UCC Composite Symbology Support

2005/02/25 | TBarCode DLL Update

TEC-IT releases the new TBarCode DLL Version 6, which can be downloaded from now. The brand new release supports all variations of the EAN UCC Composite Symbology together with MicroPDF and all RSS Codes.

With "EAN UCC Composite Symbology" a markable higher amount of data can be encoded compared to standard linear bar codes. But the new symbology is upward compatible. The additional data is encoded into a 2D multi-row symbol. This 2 dimensional Composite Component (CC) occurs always in combination with a linear bar code part, which can be a variant of the RSS family or an UPC / EAN symbol or an UCC/EAN-128 bar code.

The new "RSS - Reduced Space Symbology" and "CS - EAN.UCC Composite Symbology" - both supported by TEC-IT's new bar code library - include the proven Application Identifier Standard. In addition they are reliable and insensitive regarding symbol structure, thus existing technical infrastructure can be used as far as possible.
