South Beloit, IL - Concepts In Computing Inc . (CIC) has enhanced its EconoCR industrial optical character recognition (OCR) software making it compatible with several new environments and processors.

The program performs identification, matching, sorting, tracking, and verification of products as they move through various laboratory, manufacturing or material handling processes. Typical applications for the EconoCR software include automatic reading of serial numbers or identification codes that are machine-marked on printed circuit boards/substrates/wafers, glass lenses and molds, electronic components and carriers, disk drive read/write heads, medical/dental devices and instruments, automotive or aerospace components, currency, and packaged goods. It can also read liquid crystal displays and computer monitors during automated test operations. Reading accuracy is said to be virtually 100% on ''good'' characters while similar performance can be achieved on mediocre, and in many cases, poor quality characters via activation of certain advanced features. Additionally, on-site training of a new font can be accomplished in minutes.

Originally offered as a C++ library of OCR related routines for Intel Pentium-compatible PCs or machine vision implementation platforms running Microsoft Windows 9X or NT, an enhanced version is now available for National Instruments' LabView environment. The product is also available for implementation on a variety of products powered by Analog Devices' 21XX family of Digital Signal Processors (DSPs), Texas Instruments' TMS320C62XX family of DSPs, Motorola's PowerPCs, and Hitachi's SH4 processor.

EconoCR is priced at $1,000 for end users, $700 for OEMs/Integrators, and $500 for manufacturers of machine vision hardware or software. A volume licensing discount schedule is available upon request.
