240 dots
320 dots
* Dead Pixels
The LCD panel employed in this product uses high precision and substantial number of components
which commonly cause a small number of the pixels not to light or to remain lit all the time. This is
due to the characteristics of LCD panel yield in accuracy over 99.99% and permissible.
Backlight Brightness
• A brightness of the backlight can be changed at the Control Panel.
• Setting can be made in one of nine grades for power source either when the power is provided
by an external power supply (with connected AC Adaptor via cradle) or when the power is
provided by the installed lithium-ion battery pack.
• Setting can be made in application by using ExtEscape()API function.
• If the brightness is set to 1 (minimum), the backlight is turned off.
• The default is 9 (maximum) when an external power source is used or 7 when the lithium-ion
battery pack is used.
The functions of the System Library relevant to the Backlight Brightness are as follows.
SysGetBLBattery
: Retrieves brightness of the screen when the power is supplied by battery
pack.
SysSetBLBattery
: Sets up brightness of the screen when the power is supplied by battery
pack.
SysSetBLExpower
: Sets up brightness of the backlight when the power is supplied by
external power.
SysGetBLExpower : Retrieves brightness of the backlight when the power is supplied by
external power.
SysGetBLMaximum : Retrieves the maximum value of brightness for the backlight.
11
Backlight Auto Dimming
The Control Panel can be used to set up whether or not the Auto Dimming function is used and
the waiting time until when dimming begins. Auto dimming is set effect only when the power is
provided by the lithium-ion battery pack. It will not function when an external power supply is
used.
• If the terminal is left over in idle state - absolutely no key input - while the power is turned on,
the backlight will be automatically dimmed to save the power after a given period of time has
been elapsed. When the terminal is in the auto dimmed state, a press of key disables the auto
dimming function to resume the brightness.
• While the Auto Dimming function has been set effect, the brightness can be set in one of eight
grades. The default is 3. During the Auto Dimming function being set effect, the brightness
cannot be set any brighter than the brightness illuminated by the backlight. The defaults are
“Enable the auto dimming function” and “1 minute” for waiting time period until when the
Auto Dimming function activates.
Auto Backlight OFF
The Control Panel can be used to set up whether or not the Auto Backlight OFF function will be
used and the waiting time until when the Auto Backlight OFF function activates. The Auto
Backlight OFF function is operable for both when the power is provided by an external power
source and when it is provided by the lithium-ion battery pack.
• If the terminal is left over in idle state - absolutely no key - with the power being turned on,
the backlight will be automatically turned off to save the power.
• When the terminal is in the Auto Backlight OFF state, pressing a key disables the Auto
Backlight OFF function to resume the brightness.
• While the power is being provided by the lithium-ion battery pack and both the Auto
Dimming function and the Auto Backlight OFF function have been set enabled, either one of
the functions with preset time period shorter than the other will have the priority. The default
is “Enable the Auto Backlight OFF function” and “5 minutes for the waiting time” until when
the Auto Backlight OFF function activates.
Flipping Display Screen
Flipping display screen at 90, 180 or 270 degree is supported.
• The System Library can be used to set up an angle to flip the screen in application.
• ChangeDisplaySettingEx() API function can be used to set up this display screen flip
feature in application.
See Microsoft Help for detail about ExtEscape() and ChangeDisplaySettingEx() API
functions.
The functions of the System Library relevant to the Flipping Display Screen are as follows.
SysSet180Rotate : Sets up a flip angle for the screen.
SysGet180Rotate : Retrieves the status of flip angle for the screen.

2.1.7 Memory Management
The high speed and large capacity RAM (MobileDDR 128MB) and FlashDisk (NAND Flash
128MB) are integrated in the terminal.
Although RAM has been used for RAM XIP (for OS), program memory (for program files) and
object store (for work area) in the past, it is unified presently to integrate FlashDisk on root folder.

Notes:
• Patch files, program files and data are not lost even if the battery pack runs down. Thanks to
this, it is no longer needed to back up object store in the RAM.
• Although object store (RAM) is initialized by a full reset in the past, the functions to clear OS
and reload it are supplied.
• If user disk is formatted, registry, program files and data are initialized to the factory defaults
respectively prior to shipment.
• Although the folder named FlashDisk keeps the compatibility, it is not possible to format this
folder.

Buffer
The integrated RAM has a total capacity of 128 MB and is used for the below purposes.
Driver glob and buffer : Work area for driver and so on.
OS area
: Area to carry out deployed OS.
Program memory
: Memory area to carry out program and for the OS work area.
Figure 2.4
• The DriverGlob is allocated for the work area of drivers. The camera buffer used in the
terminal for the integrated digital camera deploys camera data temporarily on taking images.
The OS files are deployed from FlashDisk to RAM, and work in the RAM quickly.
• It takes time to deploy the OS files from the FlashDisk to the RAM on clearing OS, reloading
and booting after the battery pack run down.
• There is not object store corresponded to RAM disk. Due to that, if the files are copied into
root/Windows folder under “My device” folder, data files are stored without back-up operation
even if the battery pack runs down because files are created on user disk of FlashDisk actually.
• A full reset (all memory clear) to delete object store like before is not provided. Instead, the
functions (see Chapter 2.1.8) to clear the OS and reload are made available. Because of this
reason, it is not possible to change the ratio of program memory and object store in the control
applet.
FlashDisk
The FlashDisk has 128MB as its total capacity and is used for the following purposes.
Boot area
: Boot Loader which loads the OS to RAM is stored here.
OS disk
: OS files are stored. Boot loader deploys OS files in the RAM during booting.
User disk
: User can use freely as disk.

• In the boot area, boot loader and etc. are stored to deploy OS files in the RAM.
• In the OS disk, internal application and etc. are stored.
• The FlashDisk different from RAM does not require a power to back up data in the disk, so
data is not lost even if the terminal’s memory backup battery is exhausted.
• It is not necessary to back up object store like before because the FlashDisk is mounted on
root folder below “My Device”.
• Pay attention when user disk is formatted (see note), because registry, patch files, program
files and data are deleted and then initialized to the factory defaults respectively.
Note:
Formatting is carried out by an exclusive tool on the control applet and special key operation. See
the next chapter concerning the special key operation.

2.1.8 Reset
The role of the boot loader in Windows Mobile (OAL) (see Figure 2.6) is to boot the OS after
initializing the hardware. On the terminal, it is possible to carry out the inspection tool and OS
update tool with special key operation as described in the respective figures below.

Hard Reset
Figure 2.6 Windows Mobile
To reset the terminal, there are several ways to carry out. The explanation below describes the
methods to reset the terminal.
Soft Reset
The operation requires pressing the reset switch on the back of the terminal. It initializes the
program memory.
OS Clear and Reload
This operation is carried out if Fn and CLR keys are held down at the same time and then the reset
switch is pressed down. It initializes the RAM and reloads the OS again from the OS disk.
Hard Reset
This operation is carried out if Fn, Center Trigger and ENT keys are held down at the same time
and then the reset switch is pressed down. The RAM and Clock (RTC) are initialized and then the
system restarts.
25
User Disk Clear
This operation is carried out if Fn and CLR and “.” keys are held down at the same time and then
the reset switch is pressed for a period of one second or longer while the terminal is in operation.
A message (see Figure 2.7) to confirm memory initialization appears. The R Trigger key is used to
confirm the User Disk Clear.
Figure 2.7
After the R Trigger key is pressed twice, User disk is formatted and RAM are initialized to the
factory condition (see note).
Figure 2.8
Notes:
• Distributor ID is not cleared.
• The utility to carry out the User Disk Clear is available. See “DSKClean” for detail.
26
Power-on Reset
After the battery pack and memory backup battery are demounted and then put back into the
terminal, this state occurs when the Power switch is turned on for the first time. When the Power
switch is turned on in this state, the Boot Loader performs the reset (RTC is initialized if it is
necessary).

Notes:
• The reason to confirm whether the checksum is not carried out on suspending and resuming
is for high-speed performance. But memory corruption check is done in order to confirm
whether RAM is in the error status by any reasons or not.
• This writes down fixed data (0x00 to 0xFF) previously into fixed area (256 bytes area) on
the RAM, and compares the value on resuming. When error is detected, warning message
for memory corruption check is issued, and then reset is performed.

check character at a specific position are compared. If they match each other, the scanning data is
deemed correct. The calculation method differs according to each symbology.
Readable Digits
The actual readable digit on a bar code differs depending on the resolution and the scanning
distance between the terminal and the bar code.
33
2.2.2 Scanning Method
The Laser Scanner has “scanning state” (emits laser beam to read a bar code) and “standby state”
(scanning is halted and in standby state). These two states are controlled to start scanning bar code
and stop the scanning.

2.2.3 Scanning Parameters
Conditions that allow scanning a symbology in a specific mode can be set for each readable
symbology.
Readable Symbology
Bar code symbologies that are enabled or disabled for scanning can be specified. If only specific
symbologies are to be scanned, set “Enable” for scanning on these symbologies only and
“Disable” on the other symbologies. This educes decode processing time and lowers the error rate.
The default is “Enable scanning on all the symbologies”.
Readable Digits
The no. of readable digits can be set for each symbology. If only specific no. of digits is to be
scanned, specify it for each readable symbology. This reduces decode processing time and lowers
the error rate.
Enable or Disable Check Digit
Check digit can be set to “Enable” or “Disable” for each readable symbology. Setting the check
digit lowers the error rate.

Setting Specific Operation Unique to Code128 Symbology
The terminal supports specific operations unique to the Code128 symbology that are initiated
when certain conditions are met at a time of scanning a symbol of the Code128 symbology.
Table 2.42
Symbology
Code128
Condition
At time of scanning a symbol of
Code128 that includes the FNC2
function character.
At time of scanning a symbol of
Code128 symbology that includes the
FNC4 function character(s).
Performance
Scanned symbol data including the FNC2
function character is temporarily stored in
the scanner until when a next symbol is
scanned. The stored data is automatically
added at the forefront of the subsequent
scanned symbol data to be output.
(See note )
The value “128” is added automatically to
a data character in ASCII of scanned
symbol located next to the FNC4 function
character. If two sequentially laid FNC4
function characters in a symbol are
scanned, either other group of two
sequentially laid FNC4 function characters
within the same symbol are read, or “128”
is added automatically to each subsequent
ASCII character data laid next to the two
FNC4 function characters until the last.
Note:
The size of combined symbol data including the FNC2 function character is limited to 98
characters (maximum). If the size of any combined symbol data exceeds the maximum number of
characters, the previous combined symbol data that have been scanned right before the exceeded
combined symbol data are output.
The functions of the Laser Scanner Library relevant to the “Setting Specific Operation Unique to
Code128 Symbology” are as follows.
OBRSetCode128Option : Sets up scanning with Code128 symbology.
OBRGetCode128Option : Retrieves decode options of Code128 symbology.

2.2.6 Expanded Features
Scan Width Control
If the laser emits on several bar codes located near each other, scanning may fail. By narrowing
the laser beam emission width, scanning can be focused onto only one bar code, not onto the other
one located near by. The laser beam emission width can be set to one of the four modes as shown
in following figure. The Laser Scanner Library can be used to set it. The default is “No control on
laser beam emission width”.

Figure 2.9
The setting values are stored in EEPROM, and read out at time of resetting. Laser calibration (see
note below) can be used to adjust each setting value for the laser beam emission width. The setting
values adjusted must be registered in the registry. The values in the registry will have the priority.
Note:
Each scanner module integrated in the terminal has an individual performance different from
others. To minimize this characteristic difference, the laser calibration must be performed on each
terminal using a dedicated reference bar code.
The functions of the Laser Scanner Library relevant to the “Scan Width Control” are as follows.
OBRSetSwingAngle : Sets up swing angle control mode.
OBRGetSwingAngle : Retrieves the status of swing angle control mode.
48
Scan Verification Beam
If scanning takes place with the laser beam emitted onto multiple bar codes located near each
other, it is difficult to distinguish by the user which bar code was correctly scanned. In such the
condition, if a laser beam can be emitted again on to the same bar code verifying the actual
scanned bar code the user wishes to scan and a notification about it is issued to the user, the
scanning can be succeeded without having any difficulty or confusion. The Laser Scanner Library
can be used to set “Enable” or “Disable” for this Scan Verification Beam function. The default is
“Disable the scan verification beam function”.
The functions of the Laser Scanner Library relevant to the “Scan Verification Beam” are as
follows.
OBRSetFocus : Sets up the scan verification beam.
OBRGetFocus : Retrieves the status of the scan verification beam.
Power ON with Trigger Key
If a Trigger key has been set to “Enable turning on the power with Trigger key”, the power can be
turned on (while the power was being turned off) when it is pressed. This function allows the user
to achieve sequential operations with only one action, turn on the power → press Trigger key →
scan a bar code. This feature is a perfect idea when the user wishes to resume scanning after the
power has been turned off. The default is “Disable turning on the power with Trigger key”.
The functions of the System Library relevant to the “Power ON with Trigger Key” are as follows.
SysSetBootup : Sets up “Enable or Disable” for turning on power.
SysGetBootup : Retrieves “Enabled” or “Disable” status for turning on power.
Setting Trigger Key
Various keys such as Enter key, Cursor → key, Cursor ← key, Cursor ↑ key, Cursor ↓ key, R
Trigger key, L Trigger key, and Center Trigger key on the front and sides of the terminal can be
set as scanning trigger key. The default is only R/L Trigger keys and Center Trigger key.
The functions of the Laser Scanner Library relevant to the “Setting Trigger Key” are as follows.
OBRSetScanningKey : Sets up Trigger keys.
OBRGetScanningKey : Retrieves the status of Trigger keys.
49
Noise Filter
If the background of a bar code is white color, a noise tends to be generated easily during
scanning causing the error rate to increase. To reduce such the noise, the Noise Filter function is
available with the terminal. Two methods, software noise filter and ASIC noise filter, are
available. However, the ASIC noise filter has been set always effect by the system. Thus, it is not
possible for the user to reset it in the Read operation tab of Setting Scanner.
Table 2.44
Filter
Software
noise filter
Description
A software process removes noise. In
determining the blank at the leading edge
of the bar code, if there is a bar width
smaller than a certain value, it will be
bonded to the fore and aft data, the noise
eliminated and the determination made.
Also, the time in the range of 1 to 8
seconds from scanning to the time the
software filter initiates can be set. The
default is 3 seconds.
Merit
Effective when
scanning leading
edge blank of
bar code using
laser module
noted for easily
picking up noise.
Demerit
If initial bar is
extremely thin, it
will be
determined as
noise and
eliminated,
which may mean
that the bar code
cannot be
scanned.
The functions of the Laser Scanner Library relevant to the Noise Filter are as follows.
OBRSetFilter
: Sets up noise filter mode.
OBRGetFilter
: Retrieves noise filter mode.
OBRSetFilterOnTimer : Sets up start time for noise filter.
OBRGetFilterOnTimer : Retrieves start time for noise filter.
50
Setting Gain
The laser module gain setting, Mode 0 to Mode 3, can be selected. Selecting an optimum gain
mode enhances scanning performance especially for bar code distanced far away from the
terminal and bar code printed in high-resolution (“PCS”).
Table 2.45
Gain Mode
Mode 0
Mode 1
Mode 2
Mode 3
Description
Standard mode
This mode generates ordinary scanning performance for bar codes with various
printing qualities and in various scanning conditions.
Low sensitive mode
This mode enhances scanning performance for bar codes especially with low PCS.
However, for bar codes with other PCS level, it is not recommended.
High sensitive mode
This mode enhances scanning performance for bar codes distanced far away from
the terminal. However, for bar codes distanced near by the terminal the
performance is relatively inferior.
Super sensitive mode
This mode enhances scanning performance for bar codes with thin white bars or
black thin bars or stained bars. For other conditions, it is not recommended.
The functions of the Laser Scanner Library relevant to the Setting Gain are as follows.
OBRSetGainControl : Sets up gain control.
OBRGetGainControl : Retrieves gain control.
51
Configuration File
The various setting values can be stored in a file and resumed. The setting file storage location and
its name are “\Documents and Settings\System Settings\OBRDRV.ini”. If there is no such the
setting file, the default values are used to initiate the scanning.

Notes:
1. To set up multiple bar code symbologies effect, specify a sum of the symbology values you
wish to scan.
2. To set up multiple output methods effect, specify a sum of each value of the output methods
you wish to set. However, if you set “EAN128 without Full ASCII conversion”, “EAN128 with
code ID attached” and “EAN128 Fnc → GS conversion” effect at the same time, “EAN128
without Full ASCII conversion” has the priority over the other settings. Thus, the settings are
disabled.
3. Since Gun-trigger key is not integrated in the terminal, the key value is ignored.
4. A.I. is the abbreviation of Application Identifier which is attached at the forefront of bar code
of RSS-14, RSS-Limited, and RSS-14 Stacked symbologies.
5. The RSS symbologies change its name to “GS1 DataBar”.

6. EAN-128 symbology changes its name to “GS1-128”.
The functions of the Laser Scanner Library relevant to the Configuration File are as follows.

Dual Decoders System
The dual decoders system initially decodes a scanned bar code data using the standard decoder,
but if decoding fails, it uses the following additional decoder to scan the same bar code. This dual
decoders system supports the bar code symbologies listed below.
Code39
Code128
EAN
With the decoding system used for the previous CASIO handheld terminals, decoding is processed
with a mean value of one module adding bar thickness of each black bar and white bar for one
character when performing binaryzation or quardruplzation of bar thickness. However, this
method does not accurately decode a bar code if it is formed with unbalanced bar thickness
between white bars and black bars.
The dual decoders system can solve it by calculating separately each mean value of black bars and
white bars for such a bar code with unbalanced thickness of white and black bars by changing the
threshold level of decoding.
The functions of the Laser Scanner Library relevant to the Dual Decoders System are as follows.
OBRSetDecodeLevel : Sets up decoding level.
OBRGetDecodeLevel : Retrieves decoding level.
Customizing the Decoder
According to the scan environment and the bar code printed material’s quality, the decoder can be
customized to efficiently improve scanning performance. First, to maintain scanning performance
with the normal decoding logic, perform decoding using with the decoder and if it does not
succeed the decoding, customize it so that the decoding can be performed for a better scanning
performance.

can be changed.
60
Changing the threshold values for Right and Left margins
When a bar code is printed inside of quadrangle, scanning may not be possible because there is
not enough left and/or right marginal space. By making change on the right and left marginal
threshold values, scanning a bar code becomes possible. See the table below.
Table 2.48
When the left marginal
space is narrow.
When the right marginal space is
narrow.
When both right and left
marginal spaces are narrow.
The functions of the Laser Scanner Library relevant to the “Changing the threshold values for
Right and Left margins” are as follows.
OBRSetMarginCheckRatio : Sets up a threshold value for right and left side space margins.
OBRGetMarginCheckRatio : Retrieves the threshold value for right and left side space margins.
Changing the thickness of bars
If bars that form a bar code are printed thick because blurring or scratchy white bars (spaces
between two bars) are printed thinly, the bar ratio will not be correct causing scanning incorrectly.
Adjusting the thickness of these bars makes scanning the bar code possible. This method is
applicable if all bars of a bar code are either too thick or too thin because the method is applied to
the whole of a bar code.
The functions of the Laser Scanner Library relevant to the “Changing the thickness of bars” are as
follows.
OBRSetBarWidthAdjustment : Sets up the adjustment of thickness of bars.
OBRGetBarWidthAdjustment : Retrieves the adjustment set for the thickness of bars.
61
Decoder Learning function
This function is to automatically change parameters for criteria and threshold level used to judge
on decoding bar code data so that scanning a bar code printed in poor quality can be improved.
However, after changing the relevant parameters for the Decoder Learning function, the individual
scanning characteristics of each terminal may be degraded. To avoid such degrade, the integrated
decoding system starts decoding with the standard decoder and then changes with the customized
decoder if decoding at the first stage fails. If the decoding at the end of the process does not
succeed, the Decoder Learning function is used to ensure it to be succeeded. Setting either
“Enable” or “Disable” for the function to be effect can be set. See the decoding process flow in
following figure.

64
Changing Character Spacing Threshold Values
The decoder identifies wide character spacing as an anomalous pattern, which may result in the
inability to scan. Disabling the character spacing determination function overcomes this problem.
Depending on the barcode system, some codes may have character spacing while others may not.
This change is effective for those codes which have character spacing. The symbologies on which
this change is effective are listed below.
Code39
NW7
Industrial 2of5
IATA
While Industrial 2of5 and IATA symbologies do not have character spacing, it is possible to
enable or disable the check which is carried out to determine the ratio of the white bars located
between the black bars.
Changing Guard Bar and Delineator Threshold Values
When scanning EAN, JAN, UPC-A, and UPC-E symbologies, it may not be possible to scan due
to irregular guard bar ratios. Similarly, when reading Add-on symbology, it may not be possible to
scan due to irregular delineator ratios. This problem can be overcome by disabling the guard bar
and delineator check functions.
The guard bar element is only present in EAN, JAN, UPC-A, and UPC-E symbologies while the
delineator element is only present in Add-on symbology. This change is effective on the following
symbologies.
EAN, JAN, UPC-A, UPC-B
EAN, JAN, UPC-A, UPC-B Add-ons
UPC-E
UPC-E Add-on
Changing Thick Bar Determination Threshold Values
Scanning may be hampered by misidentification of the bar pattern which occurs when only the
thick or thin bars are printed or when the gap between the thick and thin bars is slight. This
problem can be eliminated by changing the threshold values for determining thick bars. This
change is effective on the following symbologies.

Changing Thick Bar Determination Criteria
Optical and print characteristics may result in discrepancies in the thickness of black and white
bars, thereby preventing accurate ratios from being obtained during scanning. By checking the left
guard bar and central bar, the black and white bar discrepancies are obtained and incorporated into
the thick bar determination. Changing the position of the bars to be checked can enhance the
scanning accuracy of bar codes which contain some bars with anomalous ratios.
Depending on the bar code system, some codes may have left guard bars and center bars while
others may not. This change is effective for those codes which have the elements. The
symbologies on which this change is effective are listed below.

Changing Calculation Method for Thick bar Determination
Optical and print characteristics may result in discrepancies in the thickness of black and white
bars, thereby preventing accurate ratios from being obtained during scanning. This means that
scanning may not be possible when the ratios of the black and white bars are not uniform. This
problem can be overcome by analyzing the black and white bars separately.
Depending on the bar code system, this method of analyzing the black and white codes separately
is effective for some symbologies but not for others. The symbologies on which this analysis
method is effective are listed below.

Changing Noise Filter Threshold Values
A combination of laser module optical characteristics and barcode printing conditions can
generate noise within the bar code scanning data resulting in the inability to scan. This problem
can be dealt with by removing noise. This is achieved by identifying all data at or below a
prescribed threshold value as noise and removing it when detected by linking it to preceding and
subsequent data.
66
Changing Character Discrepancy Threshold Values
When a comparison of the total value of bars comprising each character is performed during
scanning and said value is either too large or too small compared to that of the other characters, it
is processed as an anomalous pattern. This may result in the inability to scan due to the ratio of a
single character becoming either larger or smaller than the others. This problem can be overcome
by disabling the character discrepancy check.
Depending on the bar code system, some symbologies perform character discrepancy checks
while others do not. This change is effective for those symbologies which perform character
discrepancy checks. The symbologies which perform this check are as follows.
EAN, JAN, UPC-A, UPC-B
EAN, JAN, UPC-A, UPC-B Add-ons
UPC-E
UPC-E Add-on
Changing Minimum and Maximum Bar Threshold Values
When the thickest bar or thinnest bar among those comprising each character exceeds or falls
below the upper or lower thresholds respectively during scanning, they are processed as
anomalous patterns. For this reason, scanning may not be possible when a single bar is
excessively thick or thin, or when thick or thin bars are excessively thick or thin. This problem
can be overcome by disabling the minimum and maximum bar check function.
Depending on the bar code system, some symbologies perform minimum and maximum bar
checks while others do not. This change is effective for those symbologies which perform
minimum and maximum bar checks. The symbologies which perform this check are as follows.
NW7
Interleaved 2of5
Parameter Precedence Change function
The operating order of the relevant parameters used in success decoding bar code data with the
Decoder Learning function can be advanced for precedence. This advance will result in quick
response of continuously scanning multiple bar codes with similar quality. Since the precedence
order is stored in the RAM memory, it will be reset to the default order if a reset is performed on
the terminal.
Erratic Scanning Avoidance function
This function retrieves the bar code quality rank by calculating the decoder easiness when
scanning a bar code. If the quality rank of scanned bar code is relatively low, the error rate
becomes high causing an erratic scanning to occur. To suppress the error rate, the function
automatically makes judgment on scanning with such the bar code as “Failure”.
67
Enabling or Disabling the Decoder Learning function
The Decoder Learning function can be switched to either “Enable” or “Disable”. This switch can
be made using the functions or settings file provided by the Laser Scanner Library.
Note:
Enabling the Decoder Learning function improves the scanning performance for poorly printed
bar codes. However, it may also increase the likelihood of erroneous scanning depending on the
bar code you scan. The following settings should therefore be used in conjunction with the

• Turn off the scanning functions for reading all symbologies other than those to be scanned.
• Turn off the scanning functions for reading symbologies that exceed the maximum readable

Note:
The maximum numbers of digits listed in the above table apply to cases where the entire
symbology consists of numeric characters only. The maximum number is reduced to two third
(2/3) of each maximum no. of digits for alpha-numeric characters; and reduced to one third (1/3)
for Kanji characters and binary numbers. These are merely reference, and the actual range of
readable symbologies varies according to the conditions (resolution, PCS, etc.) of individual
symbol and the surrounding environment.

2.3.2 Scanning Method
Multi-step Read
This function continuously performs decoding as long as one of the R/L Trigger keys is held down.
Once bar codes are decoded they are not read any more. This function is useful for reading all bar
codes without repeating the same action when more than one bar code is printed on one slip.
Package Read
This function outputs the read result retrieved from more than one bar code in a package. With the
multi-step read function, once bar codes are decoded they are not read any more. This is useful for
handling multiple pieces of bar code data. However, if any of the following unfavorable
conditions occur, all the bar codes may not be read in one capture:
The objective bar code of read is not contained in the captured image.
The focus is not sharp enough.
The exposure is not correct.

Note:
The terminal has been designed so that a maximum of 10 bar codes or 4,095 digits of bar codes
can be read. However, it is not recommended for the user to use the package read mode for
reading bar codes consisting of a large number of digits. If the number of bar codes is greater than
4, or if the total number of digits is greater than 100, use the multiple-step read mode as much as
possible.

The functions of the Imager Library relevant to the Scanning Method are as follows.
IMGSetDecodeMode
: Sets up scanning mode.
IMGGetDecodeMode
: Retrieves the scanning mode.
IMGWaitForDecode
: Carries out decoding symbol.
IMGWaitForDecodeRaw : Carries out decoding symbol including its binary data.
72
2.3.3 Scanning Parameters
Condition that allows scanning a symbology in specific modes can be set for each readable
symbology.
Readable Symbology
Bar code symbologies that are enabled or disabled for scanning can be specified. If only specific
symbologies are to be scanned, set “Enable” for scanning on these symbologies only and
“Disable” on the other symbologies. This reduces decode processing time and lowers the error
rate. The default is “Enable scanning on all the symbologies”.
Readable Digits
The no. of readable digits can be set for each symbology. If only specific no. of digits is to be
scanned, specify it for each readable symbology. This reduces decode processing time and lowers
the error rate.
Enable or Disable Check Digit
Check digit can be set to “Enable” or “Disable” for each readable symbology. Setting the check
digit will lower the error rate.

Complementary Scanning functions
Automatic Linking of Combined Symbols
The CMOS Imager provides support for combining symbols. When scanning the following
combined symbols, the scanned data is stored in the internal buffer and all of the data from
combined symbols or all scanned symbols is combined and output.
Combined symbols can only be scanned when the decoding mode is set to “Normal Scan”. Note
that combined symbols cannot be scanned in “Multi-step Scan” and “Package Scan” modes.

Code49
QR Code
Target
Code93 bar codes with a
space for leading data
Code49 bar codes with

1(M=1)
QR Code including
combination identifier.
Method
When scanning symbols whose lead begins with a space, the
scanned data is stored in the internal buffer without being output.
Furthermore, when continuously scanning symbols starting with a
space, the data is combined in the internal buffer in the order that it
is scanned and is not output.
Finally, when scanning symbols other than those whose lead
begins with a space, it is combined with the internally stored data
and output.
Combination method same as for Code93. Different to Code93 in
that the combined symbol lead starts with M=1.
Indicators displaying the number of symbol divisions and the
sequential number of the symbol are stored in the combined QR
Code. The decoder is therefore able to combine and output all data
in the order of the indicators upon scanning all of the symbols.
Binary Data Scanning
The CMOS Imager is able to output data scanned from symbols not only in standard character
strings but also in binary data. It is therefore possible to scan binary data of encoded data, images
and audio as well as character strings delimited by NULL characters.
The function of the Imager Library relevant to the “Binary Data Scanning” is as follows.
IMGWaitForDecodeRaw : Carries out decoding symbol including its binary data.
77
Image Capture Function
This function is used to capture image data and save it as JPEG file. Using the function together
with the JPEG Library, the captured image data is output as image data in either 2-gray scale or
256-gray scale. The captured image data can also be output in low resolution by reducing its size.
The following table shows the reductions and sizes.

The functions of the Imager Library and JPEG Library relevant to the “Image Capture Function”
are as follows.
IMGGetImage
: Captures still image.
JPGEncodeToFile
: Encodes RGB data or YUV data to output the result as JPEG file.
JPGEncodeToFileEx : Encodes RGB data or YUV data to output the result as JPEG file. It
specifies “with thumbnail” or “without thumbnail”.
78
Signature Index Function
This function scans both symbol and signature at one time and outputs the symbol data and
indexed signature at the same time. The position and size of a signature can be specified in the
user application based on the position of the symbol.
The function automatically corrects the up and down positions of the captured symbol in
correspondence with the up and down positions of the image data even if it has been captured
upside down or diagonally, and then outputs it.

Illumination LED and Aimer
The terminal integrates the illumination LED for lighting and the Aimer for focusing a symbol to
scan. Setting the intensity of the illumination LED to zero will turn off.
This setting is useful when the terminal is used outdoor where the illumination LED is not needed,
or when a stamp in red is to be read.
The functions of the Imager Library relevant to the “Illumination LED and Aimer” are as follows.
IMGAimerOn
: Turns on or off the Aimer.
IMGIlluminationOn : Turns on or off the illumination LED.
80
Imager’s APO
This function will shut down the power to the CMOS Imager automatically if it has not been used
for a while.
After activating the APO (Automatic Power OFF) function, the imager’s power can be turned on
again if one of the following functions is invoked. The time period of the APO function can be set
up in the range of 0 to 1,800 seconds. Specifying “0” will disable it.
The power consumption by the imager can be curbed while the APO function is activating.
However, note that it takes about 30 milliseconds to put the power back on.
The functions of the Imager Library relevant to the Imager’s APO are as follows.
IMGSetImagerAPO : Sets up time period for Auto Power OFF.
IMGGetImagerAPO : Retrieves time period for Auto Power Off.
Configuration File
The various setting values made at “Imager Setting” of the Control Panel can be stored in an
INI-type file and resumed. The configuration file storage location and its name are
“\FlashDisk\System Settings\IMGSet.ini”.
By calling IMGLoadConfigFile function, the content in the configuration file is deployed into
the Imager, or the default values are used to initiate the Imager if there is no such the
configuration file.
The functions of the Imager Library relevant to the Configuration File are as follows.
IMGLoadConfigFile : Sets up the Imager using configuration file.
IMGSaveConfigFile : Retrieves the Imager settings and saves into configuration file.
The setting in the configuration file is divided into two parts, the setting for scanning bar codes
and the other for common operations. See the next three pages.

2.5 USB
This chapter describes about detailed specifications of the USB.
2.5.1 Basic Specifications
Switching USB
• Switches between USB Client (USB Function) and USB Host.
• Switching between USB Client (USB Function) and USB Host is carried out by a signal from
the cradle. This cannot be performed in application.
• Switching is not possible while a USB device is connected to the cradle and the terminal is
recognizing the USB device. Switching can be performed once the USB device is
disconnected.
• USBIsHost API function can be used to capture the current USB Client (USB
Function)/Host status.
USB Client (USB Function)
• Supports the USB 1.1 full speed.
• Communicates with “wceusbsh.dll” on PC side.
• Communication with PC can be established via ActiveSync.
• Communication with PC can be established via FLCE/LMWIN (this case, ActiveSync must be
disabled.)
USB Host
• Supports the USB 1.1 full speed.
• Supports USB-MODEM/USB-LAN.
• USB device is disconnected when the terminal is suspended.
• Does not support WakeOn Ring/WakeOn LAN.
• Does not support communication via USB HUB.

RAW IR
9600, 19.2K, 38.4K, 57.6K, 115.2K bps
Notes:
• A speed of communication via IrDA protocol is automatically determined by negotiation with
the partner device.
• The maximum communication speed supported commonly by both parties (the terminal and
the partner device) will be determined as communication speed.
• Communication speed cannot be set in application.
2.6.2 COM Port
COM ports used with the IrDA are as follows.
Table 2.72
IrDA protocol
COM3
RAW IR
COM4
Notes:
• When you create a communication program directly in application program to establish
connection with an IrDA device, it is recommended to use IrSock APIs instead of using one of
COM ports in the table above. For information about IrSock, refer to MSDN web site.
• It is not recommended to establish communication via COM3. Because severe communication
control including obtaining acknowledgement whether the connection is established or not
cannot be possible. If using the COM3 is inevitable, well-managed system design and
thorough verification on the designed system including controlling communication at the
upper layer protocol are necessary.
• The COM4 port is used to send and receive raw data directly via Infrared without using any
protocol. It is used to establish connection with a device which complies with the Infrared
physical layer specification but does not integrate the IrDA protocol in it. The use of this port
is not recommended because that raw data is exchanged via the Infrared, there may be cases
that stable communication is not carried out due to communication partner, communication
speed used at the upper layer, a match of communication protocols, etc. If use of the COM4
port is inevitable, well-managed system design and thorough verification on the designed
system including controlling communication at the upper layer protocol are necessary.

2.7.3 Security
This feature supports security functions laid down in the Bluetooth standard. The Bluetooth
security is divided into authentication and encryption.
These are realized by the use of PassKey (otherwise known as PIN code). PassKey is a shared
(common) authentication key used when forming a connection and trust relationship (bonding)
with Bluetooth equipment. A maximum of 16 characters (in ASCII code) can be used, but there
may be limitations on the no. of digits and usable characters due to the specifications of partner
Bluetooth equipment. Also PassKey input must be done within 30 seconds from a time when
PassKey input request is generated. Note that PassKey input is not required once “device trust”
has been established with Bluetooth equipment in previous connection. However, the partner
Bluetooth equipment must have also the trust relationship in memory.
Encryption is carried out using a link key generated after PassKey exchange and a cipher key
generated from a 128-bit random number. Here, the partner Bluetooth equipment also must
support the encryption. PassKey exchange is required for Bluetooth connection when encryption
is set enabled.

2.7.5 Communication Procedure
The following is the basic procedure for using Bluetooth to carry out communication.
1. Opening the Bluetooth (Initializing)
This function initializes the Bluetooth using either the Bluetooth tool or the Bluetooth Library.
It will turn on the power to the Bluetooth module integrated in the terminal and initialize the
Bluetooth protocol stack.
2. Searching a Bluetooth equipment
Searches a Bluetooth equipment using the Bluetooth tool or the Bluetooth Library. This sends
out an equipment search radio wave and captures information from Bluetooth equipment
operable in the vicinity.
3. Capturing service information
Captures service information using either the Bluetooth tool or the Bluetooth Library. This
captures the current usable service (profile) information of the partner Bluetooth equipment.
4. Security authentication with PassKey exchange
The partner Bluetooth equipment may request a PassKey at a time of capturing service
information and establishing Bluetooth connection. In case the Bluetooth tool is used, the
same PassKey is input for both Bluetooth equipments (the terminal and the partner Bluetooth
equipment) when a dialogue window appears requesting PassKey input. In case the Bluetooth
Library is used, the PassKey must be set in advance by carrying out the relative functions for
setting PassKey.
5. Establishing the connection
Establishes a Bluetooth connection using either the Bluetooth tool or the Bluetooth Library.
After the connection has been established, communication in Bluetooth can be continued
using the selected profile until the connection is terminated.
6. Terminating the connection
Terminates the connection using either the Bluetooth tool or the Bluetooth Library.
7. Closing the Bluetooth
Closes the communication via Bluetooth either by ending use of the Bluetooth tool or by
carrying out relative functions of the Bluetooth Library for closing the communication, and
then turns off the power to the integrated Bluetooth module.
The functions of the Bluetooth relevant to the Communication Procedure are as follows.
BTInitialize
: Initializes Bluetooth protocol stack.
BTDeInitialize
: Closes the resource for Bluetooth protocol stack.
BTGetDeviceInfo
: Retrieves device information about Bluetooth device to be connected.
BTGetServiceInfo
: Retrieves service information for Bluetooth device that communicates.
BTSetPassKey
: Sets up PassKey.
BTConnectSerial
: Establishes connection using Bluetooth virtual serial profile.
BTDisconnectSerial
: Disconnects Bluetooth virtual serial profile.
BTConnectPAN
: Establishes connection using Bluetooth PAN profile.
BTDisconnectPAN
: Disconnects Bluetooth PAN profile.
99
2.7.6 Communication Procedure by Profile
While Bluetooth communication takes place, there is a chance that the communication link may
be interrupted due to radio wave condition in air, so the retry process is always recommended in
application to verify the communication. In general, it is recommended also that the retry process
should be carried out in any wireless communication including WLAN if it takes place within the
vicinity by other equipment using the same frequency band (“ISM” band) such as microwave
oven.
Serial Profile
Bluetooth connection can be managed using either the Bluetooth tool or the Bluetooth Library.
The functions of the Bluetooth Library relevant to the Serial Profile are as follows.
BTConnectSerial
: Establishes connection using Bluetooth virtual serial profile.
BTSendSerialData
: Sends data using Bluetooth virtual serial profile.
BTReceiveSerialData : Receives data using Bluetooth virtual serial profile.
BTDisconnectSerial : Disconnects Bluetooth virtual serial profile.
DUN (Dial-Up Network)
Bluetooth connection can be managed using either the Bluetooth tool or the Bluetooth Library.
The communication will take place with RAS setting using “BTP1”. After the connection has
been established, communication via the TCP/IP protocol is possible.
The function of the Bluetooth Library relevant to the DUN (Dial-Up Network) is as follows.
BTSelectDevice : Specifies Bluetooth device to be connected.
PAN (Personal Area Network)
Once connection to Access-Point has been established using the Bluetooth tool, communication
via the TCP/IP protocol is possible.
OBEX (Object Push Profile)
File transmission or reception using the Bluetooth tool is possible.
FTP (File Transfer Profile)
File transmission or reception using the Bluetooth tool is possible.
100
2.7.7 Process after Communication Interruption
With Bluetooth communication, there is a chance that the communication link may be interrupted
due to radio wave conditions in air. An error occurred during the communication is detected by
carrying out WriteFile API function, ReadFile API function, etc.
In case where the communication is interrupted, carry out the normal Bluetooth interruption
process using the Bluetooth tool or in application and then retry to establish the same connection
for communication. If the normal Bluetooth interruption process is not made, unconformity in the
Bluetooth stack will occur so that the lower layer is disconnected whereas the upper layer is still
being connected causing the retry of establishing the connection is not possible.
2.7.8 Process During Suspend and Resume
When the terminal goes into suspend mode while Bluetooth is being used, the power to the
Bluetooth module integrated in the terminal will be automatically turned off. After that, when the
terminal resumes operation mode, the power to the Bluetooth module will be also turned on
automatically. Once the power is turned off, all the parameters related to Bluetooth
communication return to their initial states. These parameters must be set again in the Bluetooth
module by initializing the Bluetooth stack. If the Bluetooth tool or the Bluetooth Library is used, it
will automatically detect “suspend” and “resume” modes, and automatically initialize the
Bluetooth stack.
2.7.9 Setting SR Mode Parameter
When carrying out Bluetooth communication, the connection will be established by transmitting
radio waves by master Bluetooth equipment to slave Bluetooth equipment. Note that it may take
time sometime to make the establishment depending on a type of the partner Bluetooth equipment.
Here, by altering the SR mode parameter (used in Bluetooth connection), radio waves sent out
when the master Bluetooth equipment makes the establishment will change, and may reduce the
time required to establish the communication. The SR mode parameter can be set in the following
registry.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\RXBT\HCI]
Table 2.76
Key
Setting Value
Description
DEFAULT_PAGE_SCAN_REP_MODE dword: 0, 1, or 2
0: R0, 1: R1, 2: R2
Notes:
•
Change the SR mode parameter prior to establishing Bluetooth connection.
•
Even if the SR mode parameter is changed, the time required to establish connection with the
partner Bluetooth equipment may not be reduced.
101
2.7.10 Simultaneous Use with WLAN
Since Bluetooth employs the same frequency range (2.4GHz ISM band), Bluetooth cannot be
operated concurrently with WLAN. However, it is possible to make mutual interference less by
following the instruction without turning off the power of either device.
•
If the partner Bluetooth device supports AFH (Adaptive Frequency Hopping)
- Separate the frequency range definitely for Bluetooth and for WLAN.
- If AFH is used at the automatic setting mode, according to the inherent characteristics of
AFH function Bluetooth causes interference to the frequency range which WLAN uses. In
this case, specify the frequency range with the Bluetooth connection tool which Bluetooth
should not use, in other words, the frequency range which WLAN uses.
- Confirm that the Bluetooth device of the communication partner supports AFH function.
Bluetooth connection should be established first by the terminal to the Bluetooth device. If
this is carried out in the opposite way, there is possibility that AFH function does not run
due to that the frequency range set by the terminal cannot be used.
- As usable frequency range for Bluetooth is restricted by AFH function, mutual interference
among Bluetooth devices or interference from other device are apt to be suffered. If the
performance of Bluetooth communication ranks important, set the frequency range for
Bluetooth as wide as possible. This is a matter of trade-off for WLAN.
•
If the partner Bluetooth does not support AFH (exclusive use of Bluetooth and WLAN)
- Confirm that WLAN communication has been finished before performing Bluetooth
connection. If Bluetooth connection is performed while WLAN is used, radio wave from
Bluetooth will significantly affect WLAN communication. Communication error by
interference by Bluetooth radio wave can be reduced if Bluetooth communication is started
after receiving data via WLAN.
- Confirm that Bluetooth communication has been finished and Bluetooth connection is
terminated before WLAN communication starts.
- If another terminal fails to perform communication via WLAN/Bluetooth, keep the terminal
away from this terminal as far as possible and start to operate Bluetooth again.
- For WLAN communication to carry out, operate the terminal as close to Access-Point (for
WLAN) as possible. As it is assumed that Bluetooth devices are operated near by the user,
affect by interference mainly occurs on WLAN device. If the terminal distances from the
Access-Point, affect by interference generated by Bluetooth device will increase causing
LAN communication to fail. If this happens, place the terminal as near to the Access-Point
as possible and operate WLAN communication again.
Note:
Even if either one of the methods described above has been determined to be effect, thorough
check and assessment on the site and for system designs must be carried out prior to
simultaneously operating Bluetooth and WLAN communications.
102
2.7.11 Communication Range
The communication range for Bluetooth communication between two Bluetooth devices should be
3 meters or less. If there is an obstacle exists on the path that blocks radio wave, the actual range
may become shorter. Secure free path for maximum range.
103
2.8 WLAN
The IEEE802.11 b/g WLAN is operable with integrated WLAN module (model dependant). The
IEEE802.11 b/g standard utilizes 2.4 GHz ISM (“Industry Science Medical”) frequency band,
which is used for short range wireless communication.
Device Name
On the terminal, the device name used to capture data, with DeviceIoControl function, about the
WLAN driver is “SDIO86861”.
2.8.1 Basic Features
Roaming
This function automatically switches Access-Point in environment where two or more
Access-Points with identical SSID code exist.
Power Saving
This saves the power by automatically turning off the power to the integrated WLAN module in
the terminal when communicating does not take place.
AdHoc
This operation mode provides a direct communication between wireless equipments without the
use of Access-Point. Note, however, that the AdHoc mode is not recommended to operate because
connection problem may occur.
WEP
This is an encryption that uses RC4 method for safe communication. It supports 40-bit (64-bit)
and 104-bit (128-bit).
Enhanced Encryption
In order to address WEP vulnerabilities, the driver supports WEP key transmission, the new
encryption method TKIP and the AES-developed TKIP. However, AES typically requires
encoding and decoding hardware. The terminal supports AES and is compatible with WPA2.
802.1x Security
This can strengthen authentication and establish a safe and reliable communication via WLAN. In
general, this interlinks with TKIP and AES. It supports PEAP-EAP-MS-CHAP-V2 and EAP-TLS.
104
2.8.2 Expanded Features
Power ON/OFF Control
The power to the integrated WLAN module can be controlled in application. Turning off the
power when the WLAN module is not in use can save power, prevent line congestion and allow
the on-board use of the terminal in aircraft. However, it is recommended to consult a cabin crew
prior to use of it.
Operation Configuration File
The operation configuration file can be used to set each default value of the WLAN settings.
Resume Operation
After the terminal went into suspend mode and then returned in resume mode during wireless
operation, this will automatically establish connection again with the Access-Point to enable
continuous wireless communication.
Out of Range/In Range
This will automatically establish connection again with the Access-Point to enable continuous
wireless communication when the terminal returns within the range from out side of the range of
the Access-Point during wireless operation. This will automatically reconnect to the Access-Point
if connection establishment with the Access-Point cannot be maintained due to noise or
interference, or roaming is not possible for some reason.
105
2.8.3 Roaming
This feature automatically switches one Access-Point to another in where two or more
Access-Points with the identical SSID code exist are installed.
1. Searches for Access-Points that can communicate with the terminal, and lists up radio wave
status of each Access-Point.
2. Compares radio wave status of the currently connected Access-Point with those for the listed
Access-Points.
3. If the comparison proves that one of the listed Access-Points has a better radio wave status than
the one currently being connected with the terminal, the terminal will make a request of
roaming to that Access-Point.
4. If roaming permission comes from the Access-Point to the terminal, the roaming will complete.
Note that if the roaming fails, the connection establishment will be disconnected and then
connected again.
Notes:
• In some cases, the Access-Point may request the terminal for forcible roaming or reconnection
with another Access-Point.
• If connection establishment of the Access-Point being connected with the terminal is
terminated due to some reasons such as turning off the power on it, the terminal may be forced
to make a connection with another Access-Point.
• If it takes time for Access-Point to correspond for roaming request made by the terminal, the
reconnection process may be initiated.
• If DeAuthentication or DisAssociation message issued by the Access-Point that is being
connected with the terminal is received by the terminal after roaming completed, the
connection establishment between the Access-Point and the terminal may be interrupted
temporarily and then connected again.
106
2.8.4 Zeroconfig
This feature coordinates with the module firmware and the WLAN driver to perform some of the
WLAN link management and the Network management.
• If multiple SSIDs are registered as prioritized connections, attempt to establish connection
will be performed to each registered SSID. In this case, the interval of time period for
reconnecting will become prolonged. If the reconnection time ranks important, register one
SSID only as prioritized connection.
• Reconnection loop process will initiate when a disconnection notification is issued by the
module, or when Association fails.
• The reconnection loop process will end when the terminal succeeds connection establishment
with one of the multiple SSIDs registered as prioritized connections.
Connection Process
Zeroconfig will instruct the WLAN driver and the WLAN module to make connection when
finding an Access-Point registered in the prioritized SSID list. Each firmware of the driver and the
module both instructed initiates necessary process following the rule of IEEE802.11 b/g standard
to make connection with the Access-Point. If multiple SSIDs are registered as prioritized
connections in the prioritized SSID list, attempt to establish connection with each SSID will be
made.
Disconnection Process
In the following cases 1 to 3, the connection establishment via WLAN with Access-Point will be
disconnected. Firmware in the WLAN module judges on the disconnection and carries out the
necessary roaming process.
1. When the radio wave quality in air deteriorates because of interference from other radio
devices, noise, WLAN communication in the same channel with other WLAN device, or in
adjacent channel.
2. When the terminal distances from Access-Point, or when radio wave weakens due to obstacle.
3. When another Access-Point that can allow roaming to avoid the poor conditions described in
the situations 1 and 2 above cannot be sought.
Resume Process
The following processes are carried out when the terminal takes place in the resume mode.
Unloading the driver
Loading the driver
Initializing
Seeking Access-Point
Creating the Access-Point list
Establishing connection with Access-Point
Changing the Tasktray icon
107
2.8.5 Channels
The no. of WLAN channels set by default at the factory is “1CH-13CH” (13 channels) compatible
with the ETSI standard (EU radio standard).
2.8.6 WLAN Setting with Configuration File
The configuration file can be used to set the default values for the WLAN settings. By loading the
configuration file into the terminal, setting to configure the WLAN operations can be easy.
• The configuration file is “\Documents and Settings\System Settings\WLANCFG.ini”.
• If no configuration file is available, WLAN operation is initiated with the default settings.
Timing to load the file
The timing for loading the configuration file is when a reset or a full reset is performed on the
terminal. However, if any one of the following cases occurs, setting with the default values in the
configuration file will not take place.

2.10.2 GPS Function API
Latitude and longitude data are obtained using independent positioning to provide the following
functions.
• Obtains positional data from user application via the GPS intermediate driver (Windows
Mobile standard GPS interface)
• Displays satellite reception status with the GPS Information tool
Note:
Refer to “GPS Information” with the GPS Information tool for detail.
The GPS intermediate driver provides GPS information in two ways.
• NMEA Format Data Output
• Positional Data using the GPS Intermediate Driver API
In addition, multiple user applications can simultaneously access the GPS intermediate driver to
obtain positional data.
NMEA Format Data Output
The NMEA is an abbreviation for National Marine Electronic Association which provides
electronic instrument and communication specification standards for shipping vessels. The
NMEA-0183 output protocol is a standard for GPS receiver and navigation equipment
communication via a serial port. It’s widely supported by GPS equipment.
NMEA data can be output by accessing the GPS Intermediate driver’s virtual COM port (COM8).
Note:
The integrated communication port is as follows.
Table 2.84
GPS intermediate driver virtual serial port
: COM8
The procedure for using the virtual serial port is as follows.
1. Open the virtual COM port with CreateFile().
2. Read the NMEA character string with ReadFile().
3. Analyze the NMEA character string to retrieve the positional data.
4. NMEA character strings are continually output for each GPS Module measurement. Repeat
steps 2 and 3 above as required to retrieve continuous positional data.
5. Close the port with CloseHandle().
119
NMEA Sentence Output
The NMEA-0183 is output in text format with each item separated by a comma (,) and sentences
separated by a new line code (CRLF). The checksum is added up at the line end. The checksum
calculates the XOR’ed value of character data enclosed by $ , ' and * in hexadecimal string values.
Table 2.85
$ Sentence-identifying character
, value (, value)…
*Checksum
CRLF
Multiple sentence types are defined.
Some data containing broken sentences may be read depending on when the GPS is opened and
read. NMEA sentence data can be properly interpreted use programming procedures such as those
listed below.
• Detect head of sentence using $ character.
• Detect end of sentence using line break (CRLF) code.
• Discard broken sentences verified with checksum.

Positioning Data Using the GPS Intermediate Driver API
The Windows Mobile GPS intermediate driver provides an API to analyze NMEA character
strings and obtain positioning data.
The GPS intermediate driver API can be used in the following procedure.
1. Create an event with CreateEvent() in order to detect GPS module status changes and output.
2. Connect to the GPS module with GPSOpenDevice(). GPS module status and positional
changes can be registered for each event with GPSOpenDevice(). “Positional change” events
actually indicate that NMEA output from the GPS module has been received. The GPS module
generally outputs several lines of NMEA character strings each second.
3. Use WaitForMultipleObjects() or WaitForSingleObject() to wait for events.
4. When notification of a “positional change” is received, use GPSGetPosition() to retrieve the
data. Positioning data can be retrieved from each member inside the GPS_POSITION structure.
Some of the structural members are listed in the table below.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 as required by the application.
6. When positioning data is no longer required, the connection can be terminated with
GPSCloseDevice().
Figure 2.13 shows the flowchart of the procedure.
Note:
Depending on the design of application, it may also be possible to retrieve regular positioning data
with GPSGetPosition() and status with GPSGetDeviceState() after opening the device with
GPSOpenDevice() without having to register events.

Memory Backup Battery
The following shows levels available for the memory backup battery.
The terminal’s system checks the status of the backup battery every five minutes. Since power
source of charging the memory backup battery is supplied by the battery pack, charging it may not
be carried out sufficiently if the battery pack has not been accommodated for a long period or is
not being fully charged. In other words, the memory backup battery will be normally charged if
the battery pack has a sufficient level of battery capacity. Prior to operating the terminal, be sure
that the memory backup battery is charged fully; otherwise the RAM content may not be held
when the battery pack is demounted.

2.11.7 Virtual OFF by Application
Virtual OFF
The Virtual OFF is a function and its main object is to save power. Internally, the terminal is
running normally but it seems to be with the power being turned off – unable to display and input
a key. This function is mainly used to provide the terminal user with fast resume from standby
state in WLAN communication.
Virtual OFF State Transition
The state transition diagram of Virtual OFF is below. The system has a mode named Virtual OFF
and the state transits ON State and OFF State in the mode. The transition is triggered by the
message issued by pressing the Power key.

How to Set Virtual OFF Mode in Application
In order to set the Virtual OFF mode, call SysSetVirtualOffMode and SysDisablePowerOff
functions of the System Library. In this mode, the Power Management alternately issues the
following messages every time the Power key is pressed.
1. When the Power key is pressed to turn off the power:
WM_POWERBROADCAST (PBT_APMSUSPEND)
2. When the Power key is pressed to turn on the power:
WM_POWERBROADCAST (PBT_APMRESUMESUSPEND)
In the diagram in Figure 2.17, the application receives PBT_APMSUSPEND message at the first
press of the Power key and then changes the state to OFF State in the Virtual mode. And then the
application receives PBT_APMRESUMESUSPEND message and returns to ON State.
The application undertakes the transition to OFF State in the Virtual OFF mode. For example, the
application disables display, key input, and etc. and turns off the power to devices in idle.

Notes:
If the application receives the low battery warning message (PBT_APMBATTERYLOW),
the application should reset the Virtual OFF mode and warn the user of low battery. If the
user continues to operate the terminal ignoring resetting the Virtual OFF mode, turning off
the power will occur (ordinal process to turn off the power) due to low voltage of the battery.
This causes a confusion and makes the user unable to judge whether the terminal cannot
resume from the Virtual OFF mode or troublesome caused by the battery ran out.
During the Virtual OFF mode, if low battery or turning off the power by opening the battery
cover lock switch occurs, there will be discrepancy between the expected condition the
application assumes at the next time of starting up and actual condition. For turning off the
power in ordinary process, the discrepancy is caused by two kinds of setting, one should be
reset and the other to be saved. These settings must be set to ON state again in the Virtual
OFF mode when the application receives the Power On message
(PBT_APMRESUMESU|SPEND).
138
2.11.8 Virtual OFF by System
The “Virtual OFF” explained in Chapter 2.11.7 and adopted in the past for the CASIO previous
models is controlled by application. The DT-X30 and new coming models in future will support a
new virtual off mode - Virtual OFF by the System. The Virtual OFF by application is set in ON
state of the ordinary condition and is controlled by the System Library in application.
In the following figure, the application enables the “Virtual OFF by System” with Microsoft’s
SysSetSystemManagedVirtualOffMode function. Once the mode is set effect, the system
alternately changes ON and OFF states of the Virtual OFF mode every time the user presses the
Power key. That is to say, each device driver can automatically go into the pre-determined device
state. The “Virtual OFF by System” can be reset by a reset operation.

In the above figure, if the application receives the low battery warning message
(PBT_APMBATTERYLOW), the application should reset the Virtual OFF mode and warn the
user of low battery. If the user continues to operate the terminal ignoring resetting the Virtual OFF
mode, turning off the power will occur (ordinal process to turn off the power) due to low voltage
of the battery. This causes a confusion and makes the user unable to judge whether the terminal
cannot resume from the Virtual OFF mode or troublesome caused by the battery ran out.

2.11.9 Charging/Supplying the Power
The optional Dual Battery Charger (HA-G32DCHG) can be used to charge battery packs (two at a
time). Mounting the terminal on USB Cradle (HA-G60IO), Cradle-type Battery Charger
(HA-G30CHG), or Ethernet Cradle (HA-G62IO) allows charging the battery pack while it is
installed in the terminal and supplying the power to the terminal.
140
2.11.10
Temperature Control
If temperature rise is detected in the terminal when running at the highest clock frequency (under
such the condition that the CPU speed at “TURBO”, the integrated WLAN module in active mode,
etc.), a warning message (see Figure 2.18) appears and the power is turned off to protect the
integrated devices in the terminal.
Figure 2.18
Either turn off the power and leave the terminal unused for a while or move the terminal to a
location where the surrounding air temperature is cooler.
If the power is turned off due to the temperature limit, a warning message (see Figure 2.19)
appears when the power is turned on a next time.

2.12 Security
This chapter describes about detailed specifications of the security.
2.12.1 Setting Password for Terminal
This is the password setting implemented in the Windows Mobile models (model dependant).
Your password can be set at the Control Panel. Click the Lock icon to initiate the Password
Settings screen, and then enter your password in each field.
2.12.2 Setting Individual ID
Individual ID is written into a predetermined area in the FlashDisk at time of shipping from the
factory. Distributor code (a code used to protect distributor developed software from illegal
copying by an unauthorized party) is saved in other area different from the individual ID. The
individual ID incorporates the product code and serial number etc. and always becomes a unique
code different from other units of the DT-X30 series. The System Library can be used to read the
individual ID set on each unit of the terminal.
The function of the System Library relevant to the “Setting Individual ID” is as follows.
SysGetDeviceIDCode : Retrieves Device ID.
2.12.3 Setting Distributor ID
The individual ID and distributor ID can be used by the distributor and user to prevent illegal use
of application by an unauthorized party at a time of installing or carrying out the illegally copied
application by checking these preset codes. The distributor code is saved in the FlashDisk area,
and read using the System Library.
Set up your individual ID with the ID setting tool that can be downloaded from the CASIO web
site.
The function of the System Library relevant to the “Setting Distributor ID“ is as follows.
SysGetUserIDCode : Retrieves User ID.
