Switching VGA and QVGA
The Windows Mobile OS integrated in devices including the Casio IT-9000 cannot switch the
display mode, from VGA to QVGA and vice versa, due to Microsoft requirement. This limits that
the display resolution with the OS is VGA mode only.
However, the Windows Mobile OS features extended display function which offers various
display modes detailed in the table.

Backlight Brightness
•
•
•
•
•
•
Brightness of the backlight can be adjusted at the Control Panel, or using the relevant
functions of the System Library.
Brightness setting can be made in one of nine grades for power source either when the power
is provided by an external power supply (by AC Adaptor connected via cradle, or AC Adaptor
directly connected) or when the power is provided by the installed lithium-ion battery pack.
Brightness setting can be made in application by using ExtEscape()API function.
If the brightness is set to 1 (minimum), the backlight is turned off.
With the power source by the installed lithium-ion battery pack, the system automatically
controls the brightness at 50% level to curve power consumption. This does not require the
running application to aware of the brightness control.
The default is 9 (maximum) when an external power source is used or 7 when the lithium-ion
battery pack is used.
11
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 for the power source supplied by battery
pack.
SysSetBLExpower
: Sets up brightness of the backlight for the power source 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.
Backlight Auto Dimming
The brightness at 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. The auto dimming is set effect
only when the power is provided by the lithium-ion battery pack. It will not activate when an
external power supply is used.
• If the terminal is left unused in idle state - absolutely no key input is made - 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.
• While the terminal is being in the auto dimmed state, pressing key disables the auto dimming
function and then resumes the ordinary 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 brightness at 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 unused in idle state - absolutely no key input is made - 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 and resumes the ordinary 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 effect, 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.
12
Flipping Display Screen
Flipping display screen at 90, 180 or 270 degree is supported.
• The relevant functions of the System Library can be used to set up an angle to flip the screen
in application.
• With ChangeDisplaySettingEx() API function, flipping display screen at 90, 180 or 270
degree can be set 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 angle to flip the screen.
SysGet180Rotate : Retrieves the status of angle for flipping the screen.
Restrained Backlight Brightness by Temperature Sensor
When temperature in the terminal becomes extremely high, the backlight brightness is restrained.
There are two stages to restrain the brightness. In first stage, setting up the brightness is limited to
the range of 1 to 7 instead of the range 1 to 9. In second stage, setting up the brightness is further
restrained to the range of 1 to 5.
If the brightness set in ordinary brightness or in a specific range with the Auto Dimming function
(effect only when power source is supplied by the lithium-ion battery pack) is any brighter than
the limited range affected by high temperature, the brightness is automatically adjusted to the
maximum brightness in the limited range. However, the brightness resumes automatically its
brightness when the temperature becomes lower.
13
2.1.3 Touch Panel
An input can be made to any portion of the touch panel. The touch panel has the following
resolutions.

Capturing touch coordinates in X and Y directions and controlling the pointing are possible by
application. Prior to using the touch panel for the very first time, calibrating the touch panel is
required.
Tap Sound
The Control Panel can be used to set up tap sound in mute, low or loud.
Tap and Hold
By tapping and holding a specific object on the screen, the related pop-up menu appears.
Flipping Touch Panel Coordinates
When the screen flips, the coordinates of the touch panel also flip in unison.
Calibrating Touch Panel
Calibration on the touch panel can be initiated either using the Welcome wizard appeared after
disk clean or by simultaneously pressing Fn and 4 keys.
The touch panel may require a periodical calibration if it slips off due to aged deterioration,
voltage fluctuation, temperature change, etc. If it occurs on the screen of your terminal, perform
the calibration by initiating one of the methods.

Basic Specifications
WAV playback, voice recording and playback are supported.
By using the Microsoft SoftwareMixer function, output sounds from multiple applications can
be mixed and output (in 44.1 KHz, 16-bit stereo mixing).
Voice Recorder is integrated in the terminal as the sound system application to make it possible to
perform WAV file streaming playback and local file playback in HTTP.
Audio and Buzzer use the same integrated speaker, therefore it is not possible to playback Audio
and Buzzer sound at the same time. In this case, Buzzer sound has the priority.

2.1.7 Memory Management
The high speed and large capacity RAM (MobileDDR 256MB) and FlashROM (OneNAND Flash
256MB) are integrated in the terminal.
Although RAM has been used for RAM XIP (for OS), program memory (for program files to run)
and object store (for storage of work data) in the previous Casio handheld terminals introduced in
the past, non-volatile memory (FlashROM) is integrated to the Root folder in the terminal.
Your observation is required for the new method adopted in the terminal to manipulate the
memory different from the previous Casio handheld terminals.
Notes:
• Patch file, program file and data are not lost even if the battery pack runs down. It is no longer
needed to back up object store in the RAM.
• Although performing a full reset initializes object store (RAM) in the previous Casio handheld
terminals, the new method initializes the RootDisk in the terminal.
• Formatting the UserDisk initializes registry, program file, and data to their factory defaults.
• UserDisk is divided into two blocks, RootDisk and FlashDisk. In the RootDisk, system file,
registry, and patch driver, etc. are stored while backup data of backup tool and recovery tool
are stored in the FlashDisk. This makes recovery of data from the FlashDisk possible in case
of malfunction on the system.
RAM
The integrated RAM with a total capacity of 256MB is used for the below purposes.
DriverGlobal and buffer : Work area for driver, etc.
OS area
: Area to deploy the OS to run.
Program memory
: Program execution area including work area for the OS.
•
•
•
•
•
The DriverGlobal is a fixed area allocated for work area of drivers. The camera buffer used
in the digital camera integrated models deploys captured image data temporarily.
The OS files are deployed from the Kernel of the FlashDisk to the RAM in the terminal. This
allows the OS to run quickly on the RAM. However, it takes time to deploy the OS files from
the FlashDisk to the RAM in case when booting takes place after a full reset is performed or
the lithium-ion battery runs down.
Object store equivalent of the RAM disk in the previous Casio handheld terminals is no longer
integrated. If files are copied to Root and Windows folder under “My device” folder, this
creates the same files in the UserDisk of FlshROM and secures data without performing
backup in case the lithium-ion battery is not installed.
Although performing a full reset (all memory clear) deletes object store (RAM) in the previous
Casio terminals, it deletes the RootDisk causing registry and system DB to be deleted and to
initialize the system.
This does not allow to change the ratio between program memory and object store at the
Control Panel.
25
FlashDisk
The FlashDisk has a total capacity of 256MB and is used for the below purposes.
Boot area
: Deploys the OS files to the RAM from the OS disk.
OS disk/Kernel : Stores the OS files. Boot loader is deployed in the RAM at time of booting.
User disk
: A disk user can freely use. It comprises the RootDisk which is mounted in
the system root folder and the FlashDisk.
Spare
: A substitution sector of the FlashROM
•
•
•
•
•
In the boot area, boot loader and etc. are stored to deploy the OS files/Kernel into the RAM.
In the OS disk, the OS module, drivers, integrated applications and etc. are stored.
The UserDisk different in its structure 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 runs down.
The FlashDisk is observed as \FlashDisk driver under “My Device” and stores backup data
used to restore the system to the same condition before unstable condition occurs. Data stored
in the FlashDisk for restoration is not deleted by performing a full reset.
Formatting the UserDisk deletes registry, patch files, program files and data, and initializes the
system to the factory default.
Note:
Formatting on the UserDisk is carried out by a dedicated format tool in the Windows folder or by
operating special keys. See the next chapter concerning the special keys operation.
26
2.1.8 Reset
The role of the boot loader in Windows Mobile (OAL) is to boot the OS after initializing the
hardware. On the terminal, it is possible to carry out the special performances with special keys
operation as described in the figure below.

Figure 2-3
To reset the terminal, there are several ways to carry out it. The explanation below describes the
methods to reset the terminal. See also Table 2.13.
Soft Reset
The operation requires pressing the reset switch on the back of the terminal. It initializes the
program memory.
Full Reset
This operation is carried out if Power and C keys are held down at the same time and then the
reset switch is pressed for a period of one second or longer. It initializes RAM and formats the
RootDisk and reloads the OS again from the OS disk to the RAM.
Hard Reset
This operation is carried out if Fn and “-” and ENT keys are held down at the same time and then
the reset switch is pressed. The RAM and Clock (RTC) are initialized and the OS files are
reloaded into the RAM.
27
User Disk Clean
This operation is carried out if Fn and C and “.” keys are held down at the same time and then the
reset switch is pressed for a period of one second or longer that formats the RootDisk and
FlashDisk and initializes the RAM to the factory default and then reloads the OS files to the
RAM.
A message (see Figure 2.4 ) to confirm memory initialization appears. The R Program key is used
to confirm the User Disk Clean.
X

Figure 2-4
After the R Program key is pressed twice, the UserDisk is formatted and the RAM is initialized to
the factory default (see note).
Figure 2-5
Notes:
• Distributor ID in E2PROM is not cleared by performing the User Disk Clean.
• The utility to carry out the User Disk Clean is available. See “ DSKClean ” for detail.

Power-on Reset
This is a state occurred on the terminal after the battery pack and memory backup battery are
demounted and then put back into the terminal and then the Power switch is turned on for the first
time. When the Power switch is turned on in this state, the Boot Loader performs reloading the OS
files (RTC is initialized if it is necessary).
The table shows the respective states and data in the components and devices when the reset
occurs.

Notes:
• The reason that the checksum is not carried out on suspending and resuming is for
high-speed performance. But, memory corruption check is carried out to check if the RAM
is in error status by any reason.
• The RAM corruption check is performed by writing fixed data (0x00 to 0xFF) into a fixed
area (256 bytes area) in the RAM prior to performing the check, and the value written in the
RAM is verified at a time of Resume. If an error is detected, warning message for memory
corruption check is issued, and then reset is performed and the OS files are reloaded.

2.2.2 Scanning Method
Ordinary Read
This function reads one bar code at a time and outputs the data. Ordinary, this read method is
used.
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

2.2.3 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 other symbologies. This reduces decode processing time and lowers 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
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 error rate.

Decode Window Function
This is a function that specifies an area for decoding bar code located in the center of the aimer
emitted by the CMOS Imager. It is useful for decoding a specific bar code symbol only among
plural bar codes printed on same paper sheet. If either Mode 1 or Mode 2 of the parameters is
specified in the Decode Window function, the decoding area is automatically determined to
scan only a bar code located near the center. Setting the User Setting effect in the Decode
Window function allows an area of decoding to be specified with X and Y coordinates.

If the Decode Window function is set for scanning a bar code, a bar code or a part of the bar
code that is within the aimer’s area (see Figure 2.9) is scanned, and other bar codes outside of the
area are not scanned. For example, in Figure 2.9, bar code A cannot be scanned because the entire
bar code is outside of the aimer area, but bar code B can be scanned because a part of the bar code
is within the area.
The entire bar code is outside of the area.

Automatic Linking of Combined Symbols
The CMOS Imager supports automatic linkage of multiple symbologies.
When scanning symbols with the following combined symbols (see Table 2.61), 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 “Ordinary Read” mode.
Note that other modes including “Multi-step Read” and “Package Read” may cause incorrect
result of scanning combined symbols.
Table 2.33
Symbology
Code93
Code49
QR Code
Applicable Symbols
Code93 bar codes with a
space at the forefront
Code49 bar codes with
mode 1 (M=1) at the
forefront
QR Code with
combination identifier.
Combination Method
1. When scanning symbols of Code93 symbology whose
forefront begins with a space, the scanned data is stored in the
internal buffer without being output.
2. 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.
3. Finally, when scanning symbols other than those whose
forefront begins with a space, it is combined with the
internally stored data and output.
Combination method is the same as for Code93 symbology.
Different to Code93 is that the combined symbols start with M=1
at the forefront.
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.
45
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.

JPGEncodeToFileEx : Encodes RGB data or YUV data to output the result as JPEG file. It
specifies “with thumbnail” or “without thumbnail”.
46
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.

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.

After calling the static image capture function, there is a time-lag of approximately 400
milliseconds until when an image is actually captured. The camera driver notifies the operator of
the terminal that the image has been captured with the shutter sound. Focus adjustment can be
performed using the Auto Focus function and the fixed-focus switch (10 levels), thereby enabling
the operator to capture a focused image.
Notes:
• Prior to capturing static images, secure the sufficient memory size (recommended 2Mbytes or
more) remained in storage where the captured static images are stored.
• When temperature of the LED becomes high, for safety, capturing images with flash function
by using the LED and the functions that controls ON/OFF of LED illumination will not be
operable.

Compulsory Shutter Sound
The shutter sound is generated by the audio during shooting photos. To prevent video voyeurism,
whatever the case, it is forced to sound including when the audio is set to mute and when a set of
earphones is being used.
Flickerless
The CMOS Camera in built-in IT-9000 detects flicker automatically and minimizes the affection
by it.
Focus Adjustment
The CMOS digital camera is equipped with a focus adjustment function to enable the operator to
capture focused images. This adjustment comes in the form of a fixed-focus switch and an
autofocus feature. The fixed-focus switch enables the application program to switch the focus to
suit the distance to the object being captured.
The autofocus feature automatically adjusts the focus to suit the distance of the object being
captured. Executing the autofocus function in preview mode automatically adjusts the lens
position to focus the camera. The autofocus adjusts the preview screen s fixed area (focus area) so
that it comes into focus. When the focus area and the focus frame display functions are enabled, a
frame known as the focus frame appears on the preview screen. The focus frame appears green
when the autofocus has been successful. When the autofocus function is not selected or when it is
unsuccessful, the focus frame turns to red. When capturing a still image upon successful autofocus,
the focus frame returns to red.

Adjusting Frame Rate
Frame rate which is output to preview display by the integrated camera module is adjusted
automatically in accordance with the surrounding brightness, not exceeding the maximum frame
rate. The camera module has the capability of setting the maximum frame rate. It is to set the
maximum frame rate in 4 grades output by the camera module in preview display. In capturing
movie, the maximum frame rate requires the software resource used for encoding. The more you
set higher frame rate, the more it takes time to encode and the program memory is needed.

Adjusting Movie File
The integrated camera module has the capability of setting movie quality (delicacy, smoothness,
beauty of the movie screen when playing back movie) and recording sound in capturing movie. If
you set the screen quality higher, captured movie can be in a good quality, but it makes the file
size be swelled. It can also set sound in recording movie. If you play with some of the buttons
while you are capturing movie, it may record sound. Before starting movie, be sure to secure
sufficient free memory for both storage and program (10MB or more for storage memory or
35MB or more for program memory with the assumption that high screen quality, frame rate at
high, with recording sound and time period of 30 second to capture movie are set.)

Control on Power/CPU Clock
While the camera is in operation (preview display, capturing images, capturing movie), set the
CPU clock to its highest for the speed of capturing movie until preview display ends.
To save power consumption, always turn off the power to the camera module and ASIC for the
camera module while the camera is not in operation. Turn on the power only when the camera is
in operation and turn off it again as soon as the use of the camera is ended.
Control on Exclusive Operations
The operations in the table are exclusive processes with the camera. The integrated CMOS Imager
(model dependant) is controlled to avoid the concurrent use with the camera. This is that both
devices use the same hardware resource in the terminal. If both devices are operated at same time,
either one of the devices initiated first has the priority over the other. For example, if you attempt
to operate “preview display” while the CMOS Imager is being opened, the camera driver returns
an error.

2.4 Near Field Communication (NFC)
2.4.1 Basic Specifications
The following types of smart card can be accessed for reading and writing by the Near Field
Communication (hereafter referred to it as NFC) integrated in the terminal.
•
•
•
•
ISO/IEC14443 Type A (MIFARE Standard; Ultralight) See note 1.
ISO/IEC14443 Type B
FeliCa;FeliCa Lite See note 2.

Notes
- Memory configuration and command specifications of each card are different. Refer to
specifications of the respective cards.
Notes
1.
The NFC does not support MIFARE DESFire, ProX, SmartX, and Plus cards. The security
feature specifically implemented in these cards is not supported by the NFC.
2.
The FeliCa security area can be accessed by using a FeliCa SAM card “RC-S251”.
RC-S251 can be accessed from the SAM library or the NFCFelica library.
3.
About Tag-it series, Lock AFI / LockDSFID command is not supported by NFC controller
specification. And when you use Write Single Block / Lock Block / Write AFI / Write
DSFID command, you need to execute re-try operation of command in user application.
67
2.4.2 Communication Functions
Reading and writing data with a smart card is performed by the way of contactless communication
between the integrated NFC module in the terminal and that smart card. Smart card is
preprogrammed by the manufacturer to perform certain operations in response to prescribed
commands. When a command is correctly transmitted by the terminal via the NFC to smart card,
the smart card responds to the received command by performing a corresponding operation. Once
the operation is complete, the smart card then transmits response indicating the result of the
operation.
An explanation of the functions relating to this communication process is provided below.
Card Polling Function
This function carries out the following performances.
•
Searches smart cards within the communication range
•
Detects smart card
•
Activates smart card
•
Retrieves smart card response information
The card polling function terminates searching smart cards either when it detects a smart card, the
preset timeout elapses, the assigned callback function returns 'FALSE', or the 'stop polling'
function is carried out.
Once the smart card has been successfully activated, the NFC module continually transmits radio
waves in order to supply power to the smart card. This radio wave transmission terminates
automatically when the 'radio off' function is carried out or when a certain preset time elapses
without any communication between the NFC module and the smart card. It is possible to enable
or disable the automatic stop (auto stop) setting and to change the time until the auto stop occurs
(i.e. the timeout). Under the default settings, the auto stop is set effect and the timeout is set to
1,000 milliseconds.
About IC card search method
There are following search methods.
Search method
Normal mode
Detail
One piece IC card will be started. Search operation
will be terminated by the following condition.
. Find one IC card
. Passed timeout period
. Specified call back function return FALSE
. Execute polling stop function

Usage
This is simple method for
communicate with one
IC card, normally this
method should be used.
Multi Step
mode
While specified call back function return TRUE, start
IC card continuously. There is no case to start again
IC card which started before. Control will be
returned to application at each IC card start timing.
Application will start IC card as maximum 100
pieces according to execute this function
continuously. Search operation will be terminated by
the following condition.
. Find one IC card
. Passed timeout period
. Specified call back function return FALSE
. Execute polling stop function
If you do not scan again
before scanned and want
to scan IC card
continuously like Goods
stock taking, in such case
Multi Step mode should
be used.
Started card's Uid will be recorded in driver history
at each IC card started. Double starting will be
prevent by compared this history and started IC card.
This history record will be clear by started specified

is impossible to scan different type cards at the same time. Ex. TypeA and Felica card can not
scan at the same time.
- *3 When you want to start Multi Step operation to Mifare Standard 4 Byte UID type card and if
there is same UID card in some target cards inside, first card is OK for scanning but second card
can not scan.
*4 About maximum number of package mode, Type A is 4 pieces, FeliCa and ISO15693 is 2
pieces.
69
Power saving control at card polling
It is possible to save power consumption by search IC card with adjust to long as radio wave
sending period.
But sending period will be longer than before, then IC card detect response will be down.
Please try to use this method for long time continuously IC card waiting case.
Data Communication Functions
Data communication becomes possible once the smart card has been activated by the card polling
function. Communication ends once the NFC module has received the response information from
the smart card in response to a transmitted command or when the timeout elapses.
When the communication is successful, the smart card remains in the activated mode, thus
enabling consecutive transmission of other data.

card until when the NFC receives a response from the smart card, elapses 60 milliseconds.
70
Below is an example of data communication between the NFC module and smart card.
Figure 2-9
Note:
The NFC module consumes very little power while it is turned on. In addition, turning on the
module takes time so if you would like to start communicating with a smart card very quickly,
turn on the module at same time when activating the application. To start communication with a
smart card, start it by performing card polling. After the application is complete, be sure to close
the NFC module.
71
2.4.3 Expanded Features
Radio Wave Auto Stop Timing Notification
After successfully activating a smart card with the card polling function, the radio wave
transmission will stop automatically if a certain time period elapses without any data
communication between the NFC module and the smart card. If this happens, it is possible to send
a notification, via either a window message or an event, of the timing when the radio wave
transmission stopped. This notification function can be set effect or disabled, and is set disabled
by default.
2.4.4 Power Control
Power-off When Not in Use
In order to save power, no power is supplied to the NFC module and the ASIC for controlling the
NFC module when the devices are not open. The devices are turned on with the respective open
functions and turned off with the respective close functions.
Control on Power When Terminal is Off
The NFC control software switches on/off of the module when the terminal is turned off.
Furthermore, when the terminal power is switched on again, the NFC control software carries out
relevant process corresponding to what the module was in when the terminal was turned off. The
respective operations which occur when the terminal power is turned on or off are shown in the
table below.

Notes:
1.
When card polling resumes after the power is turned back on, the timeout restarts from
where it ended in the card polling before the power on the terminal is turned off. In addition,
counting time on card polling is suspended while the terminal power is off.
2.
In case the module power is turned off during data communication with smart card and
operation is suspended, the power supply to the smart card is also interrupted so the mode
on the card is reset. Carry out card polling to restart communication.

When a SAM device is opened, power is supplied to the SAM card controller and the ASIC that
controls the controller. When a SAM device is closed, power to the SAM card controller and the
ASIC that controls the controller is cut off.
The following SAM library functions relate to this function.
SAMOpen
SAMClose
: Turns on power to the SAM card controller
: Turns off power to the SAM card controller
SAM card power control
The power supply for the SAM card can be controlled to switch on and off by executing a SAM
library function while a SAM device is open. Up to three card slots are equipped (*1) and the
power supply to each card slot can be controlled to switch on and off.
*1 The number of card slots varies between models.
The following SAM library functions relate to this function.

2.7 Bluetooth
This chapter describes about detailed specifications of the Bluetooth.
2.7.1 Basic Specifications
Version
Bluetooth® Version 2.0 + EDR
Master
The master establishes a connection with Bluetooth equipment in slave mode waiting for
connection with the master.
Client (Slave)
The client (slave) becomes in waiting mode for communication initiated by the master.
Security/Encryption
This performs security (PassKey exchange) and encryption as laid down in the Bluetooth
standard.
AFH
This automatically limits and controls radio wave frequency band to be employed in Bluetooth
communication.
Fast Connection
This is to convert radio frequency for Bluetooth communication into transmission pattern which
allows connection establishment quickly.
EDR (Enhanced Date Rate)
If the communication partner supports also EDR, the EDR is set as radio wave type automatically
by negotiation with the partner device. There is no setting required for the EDR mode.
Communication seed via the EDR between the two terminals is approximately 500 Kbps
maximum.

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.
2.7.4 COM Port
The following is the COM ports used with the Bluetooth.

Simultaneous Use of Multiple Bluetooth COM Ports
Multiple Bluetooth COM ports by Serial profile can be opened simultaneously to use.
At this time, you should specify COM port at each Bluetooth devices.
About procedure of connection using multiple Bluetooth devices in Microsoft Stack, please refer
the following URL.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa916877.aspx
81
2.7.5 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)
AFH function automatically avoids the channels such as WLAN equipments are in use. But
in some case, Bluetooth communication affects other communications such as 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.
82
2.7.6 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.
83
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).
TKIP
TKIP supports against the weakness of WEP encryption.
AES
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is available for encryption method.
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.
84
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.
85
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.
86
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

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.
• The file itself does not exist.
• The format is wrong.
• “Disable configuration file” has been set in the WLANCFG parameter.
Creating Configuration File
The configuration file can be created and edited with WLAN Settings tool at the Control Panel.
Using a general editor, a configuration file can be also created.
WEP key must be created in advance with an encrypted character string using the WLAN
Setting tool and then copy and paste it to the configuration file. WLAN settings made with
Microsoft’s WLAN setting will be ignored in the configuration file.
88
File Format
The file format of configuration file is INI format which follows restrictions described below.
•
•
•

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 2.70
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().
98
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 2.71
$ Sentence-identifying character
, value (, value)…
*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().

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.

2.11 MCR
This chapter describes the specifications of the MCR functions. The functions incorporated in the
terminal are as follows.
• Read/Analysis function
• Read completion notification/Error notification function
• Track specification function
• Automatic Power OFF function
• Raw data retrieve function
2.11.1 Read, Analysis Function
This function serves to pass through (run) magnetic card in the MCR unit and read data on the
magnetic card. Since the data read from the magnetic card contains preamble, STX, etc., in
addition to the data, the MCR driver will extract only the necessary data after removing other data.
With the MCR Library the user can make use of data retrieved from the magnetic card.
The function of the MCR Library relevant to the “Read, Analysis Function” is as follows.
MCRRead : Retrieves data read by the magnetic card reader.
Data Analysis for Each Track
Magnetic card has an area called “Tracks” in which data is written. The magnetic card can have a
maximum of three tracks. MCR can read data on the following three tracks at a time. It also
removes the parity contents from the entire data to extract only effective data, and store it into the
buffer provided by application program. The following track data formats described in the table
below, ISO1, ISO2 and ISO3, can be read with the MCR.
Table 2.78 Applicable standards and specifications

Application program should secure a buffer and pass it to the argument of MCRRead function of
the MCR Library to retrieve data on each track as well as the read status. The data length can also
be retrieved. “0” is returned as the length if no data is written on the specified track or read is
performed on track not specified.
106
2.11.2 Read Completion and Error Notification
Read Completion Notification
The terminal will notify application program of the fact that the read/analysis of data or raw data
retrieve is completed at that point in time. The notification method can be either by event or by
message, and the initial setting is the latter. (This notification method can be modified with
MCRSetEventNotification function) In case of notification by message, a message of
WM_MCR_READING defined in the mcrlib.h header file will be posted when data
read/analysis is completed. When application program passes the window handle to the MCR
driver when it is opened, notification of this message will be posted to the handle, however, if the
application program does not pass the window handle (i.e. specifies NULL), the message will then
be broadcasted. If the notification method is specified as “by named event”, a named event that is
defined in the registry of the terminal will be posted (this event name can be modified through the
registry; the initial setting is MCREventReading). Therefore, an application that has set up the
notification method to “by event” must use WaitForSingleObject function, etc., to wait for a
data read/analysis completion event.
Note:
Before a read/analysis completion notification is posted, the initial condition (0) is stored both as
data and error information. As a result, if the application attempts to retrieve data just before the
notification, it may get the data being currently written. Therefore, data retrieve must be made
only after the event has occurred.
The functions of the MCR Library relevant to the “Read Completion and Error Notification” are
as follows.
MCRSetEventNotification : Sets up the notification method for data retrieve.
MCRGetEventNotification : Retrieves the data retrieve notification method.
107
Error Notification
If an error occurs when data retrieve is performed with the library function, the error status will be
saved accordingly in either StatusISO1, StatusISO2, or StatusISO3 (if data retrieve is successful,
MCR_DATA_SUCCESS will be saved, and the data information of the track will be stored in the
data storage buffer DataXXX[]).
The following table lists the error contents.

2.11.3 Designating Track
Under the default conditions the data read/analysis operation is performed on all the tracks
(Tracks 1 to 3). However, it is possible to designate the target track to perform data read/analysis
in application program, if using the library functions.
The function of the MCR Library relevant to the “Designating Track” is as follows.
MCRSelectTrack : Chooses a specific track to retrieve data.
108
2.11.4 Automatic Power OFF
The user can automatically turn off the power to the MCR if a given period of time elapses. The
MCR power is basically turned on when MCROpen function is carried out, and turned off when
MCRClose function is carried out. However, MCRSetAutoPowerOff function turns the MCR
power to off after elapse of a given time period even if MCRClose function is not carried out
(The MCR cannot be used while the power is off). To resume the MCR power again from the
Automatic Power OFF condition and activate the MCR, use MCRResume function.
The functions of the MCR Library relevant to the “Automatic Power OFF” are as follows.
MCRSetAutoPowerOff : Turns off the power to the magnetic card reader when a specified time
period elapses.
MCRGetAutoPowerOff : Retrieves the time period of countdown.
2.11.5 Raw Data Retrieve
By having a magnetic card run through the MCR, raw data itself magnetized in the card can be
retrieved. Because the data is raw retrieved directly from the MCR, data process such as data error
detection is not carried out. Any one of the errors listed below if occur will prevent from
retrieving raw data.

* The 82.55 mm printer has the same specification as the 80 mm printer.
2.12.1 Printing Functions
The printer has the following two major functions:
• Printing character fonts/bit images using CASIO original API
• Printing through the print system
Printing with CASIO-original API

The following character font table is “International Character Set” which becomes valid only
when ANK is specified as input code. It describes deviations of the character set by country. Even
if the character code is the same, a font specified by the corresponding character code may not be
the same. The table shows that some of the ANK codes are replaced with local character fonts of
the specific countries. Numbers in row represent the countries and numbers in column represent
the character codes.

Determine the appearance of each character by combining the following four kinds of decorations.
The following precautions must be kept in mind when each kind of decoration is used.
Table 2.83

Smoothing
Remark
Since this greatly increases the printing duty, power consumption will increase
while printing speed decreases accordingly.
The objective letter becomes thicker in the horizontal direction.
Since one of every two dots will not be printed, as a result of light printing, printed
letters, if their character size is smaller than x2, may be illegible.
Applicable to letter sizes greater than double the original font size both in the
vertical and horizontal directions. However, this smoothing will not be applied to
other fonts, but only to the Mincho font (24-dot font).
Notes:
• Decoration of the enlarged font will be applied to the image that is the result of the enlarged
font.
• No decoration can be applied to OCR-B fonts.
• If more than one kind of the decorations is specified, they will be applied in the following
order:

Printing functions
The following two major printing functions are incorporated into this printer: printing the
character font and printing the bit image.
Print start conditions
The printer will commence its printing job when the print start conditions listed below are met.
• When CR, LF, and FF codes are output (if CR and LF codes are input successively, LF will be
ignored).
• When one line becomes a full.
• When printing of the bit image (including a bit map, screen image, etc.) is attempted.
Paper width
For this printer it is possible to specify the paper width, either 80 mm or 58 mm, to be used
through the Printer Library functions.
Notes:
• It is always necessary to specify the proper paper width for the paper to be used.
• If an attempt is made to print on 80 mm width paper on the printer which has just printed a
58-mm width paper, the printed results may be blurred. For this reason, the user is not
permitted to change the setting to an 80 mm setting after printing on 58 mm paper width.
• If the paper width setting is changed, the setting of the right and left margins will be reset to 0.
The functions of the Printer Library relevant to the “Paper Width” are as follows.
PRNSetPaperWidth : Sets up paper width.
PRNGetPaperWidth : Retrieves the current paper width.
114
Printing paper
The user must specify the print paper type with the ESC command (Set Paper). The recommended
paper types are shown below:
Table 2.84
Paper
Description
F-220VP
1-ply (high sensitivity)
HA220AA
1-ply (standard)
AFP-235
1-ply (for long-term storage)
HW54S
Label
ODT60TC-RAK 1-ply (thin paper)
Notes:
1. If 2-ply paper is used, set also the print speed to the graphic printing mode.
2. Perform this paper type specification only after the printing operation stops (i.e. after carrying
out the ESC command (Discharge Unprinted Characters)). If the paper type specification is
changed during printing, the print quality may be adversely affected because the data
currently being printed will continue to be printed according to the parameters specified for
the new paper type.
Print density
The user can specify the print density with the ESC command “Specify print density”. The print
density can be specified to one of 9 levels.
Notes:
• Perform this print density specification only after the printing operation stops (i.e. after
carrying out the ESC command “Discharge non-printed characters”).
• If the print density specification is changed during printing, the print quality may be adversely
affected because the data in the mid-course of printing is printed at the newly specified
density.
Print speed
One of the following print speeds can be specified with the ESC command “Specify print speed”.
• Slow print (High-quality print)
• Quick print
• Graphic printing mode
It is possible to print text or graphics according to any of the print speeds above. However, if the
graphic printing mode is specified, the actual print speed will be substantially slower in order to
improve the print quality.
Notes:
• Perform this speed after the printing operation stops (i.e. after carrying out the ESC command
“Discharge non-printed characters”).
• If the print speed is changed during printing, the data currently being printed continues to be
printed at the same speed before change is mad which also results in a deterioration of the
print quality.
115
Feed in Forward
It is possible to specify the forward feed with the ESC command “Specify forward feed”. The
forward (positive) feed amount can be set up in the range of 0 to 255 dots or in the range of 0 to
255 mm.
Continuous printing after error
If an error occurs, the printing operation instantly stops. Subsequently, the user can make a
decision as to whether the printing operation is to be continued after canceling the error. To
specify continuous printing after an error use the ESC command.
Character fonts
The following setup parameters can be specified for printing character fonts:
Table 2.85

Mixed character fonts
It is possible to print a mixture of different character fonts, character sizes, character decorations
within one line. The employed line-to-line interval shall be the maximum size (character height)
of the letters contained in that line.
116
Pre-heating
If the head temperature is too low in a low-temperature environment, it is recommended to
automatically raise the head temperature before commencing the print job. This is intended to
improve the print quality at low temperature. While the pre-heating continues, the icon shown
below appears at the Task tray.
Note:
If at a substantially low temperature, it may take more than 1 minute for the head temperature to
reach a sufficient level.
Holding the head temperature
The terminal features with the “pre-heating” function described above which makes the printer’s
head become warm for printing in good quality while it is used at a low temperature. However, it
takes a while before the temperature becomes an optimum temperature level. The head
temperature hold function will hold always the temperature on the head at a certain temperature
level or for a certain preset period only. This makes the pre-heating period become shorten.
Notes:
• Monitors the head temperature periodically.
• Raises the head temperature to an optimum temperature level if the temperature has not
reached yet.
• Stops the head temperature to rise if the temperature has reached to an optimum temperature
level.
• Curbs the head temperature to become a hot while the terminal is mounted on the cradle or
powered by the AC Adaptor. This is to make the installed battery pack charged.
• If once the head temperature hold function is set up enabled, it will continue to hold the
temperature even if PRNClose function is carried out (The APO function activates following
the presetting).
• The time period of holding the head temperature can be set up to either “always” or for one
hour (maximum) in increment of five minutes. The specified time period commences when
the ESC command (ESC p n) is sent last until the preset holding time elapses. The holding
time period is counted during printing but, not during suspend.
117
Orientation
This function can be implemented by flipping the character fonts. However, only
character fonts that have equal enlargements in both vertical and horizontal directions
can be flipped. This specification can be made at the head of a line. If it is made in the
middle of line, it is ignored. This specification continues to be valid until it is canceled.
Figure 2.17
Note:
For the ANK fonts the printed results may vary depending on the fonts that existed before and
after the ANK font, as shown below (see example nos. 1 and 2.).
1. If an even number of codes of an identical font and size are continuously output (eg. “あいう
ABCD え”).

Notes
•
The specification of orientation shall be made at the beginning of the line. If it is made in
the middle, it is ignored. This specification continues to be valid until it is canceled.
•
It is not permitted to flip 6x7-dot mode fonts and OCR-B fonts.
•
Only character fonts that have equal enlargements in both vertical and horizontal directions
can be flipped.
•
The orientation once it is set up continues to be valid until it is canceled.
Buffer full printing
It is possible to switch the buffer full printing with an appropriate ESC command to
enable or disable. The operation after switching is as follows:
•
If buffer full printing is enabled
If character codes are being printed and if the line buffer is full before the print start
conditions are met, a whole single character that may extend beyond the right
margin will be printed on the line following a line feed. For example, in the case of
16-dot Kanji characters, thirty-six characters can be printed on a line if the
character-to-character spacing is specified as being zero. In this case, if the
thirty-seventh character is a character code, this will be printed at the top of the
next line after the thirty-six characters have been printed and a line feed has
effected.
37th character

•
If buffer full printing is disabled
Character codes received after the character that extends beyond the right margin and

end of a line, will be ignored, since it is not
fully contained within the line. In addition,
this line will be successfully printed when
the print start conditions are met (output of
CR/LF).

Printing the bit image:
This function prints the specified number of dot-lines of image data. Since a full dot-line of data is
576 dots (72 bytes) long for an 80 mm width paper, send it to the printer after subtracting the
number of dots taken up by the right and left margins, if they are specified. If, for example, 40
dots are specified for each of the right and left margins (each margin can be specified in 8-dot
units), the data length of one dot line will be 576 - (40 + 40) = 496 (62 bytes).

Bitmap file
The 2-scale (monochrome) bitmap file can be printed through the Print Library.
The functions of the Printer Library relevant to the “Printing Bit Image” are as follows.
PRNImageOut : Prints out bit image.
PRNBMPOut : Prints out specified bitmap.
Printing screen
This allows you to print the screen (to make a hard copy). If the left and right margins have been
set, the size of the image will be scaled down so that it fits within these margins when it is printed
out.
Printing window
This allows you to print a specific window. If the left and right margins have been set, the size of
the image will be scaled down so that it fits within these margins when it is printed out.

Printing user-defined fonts:
It is possible to register 128 user-defined fonts. The font sizes that can be registered
are 24-dot, 16-dot, and 12-dot. To assign more than one size of font (24-dot, 16-dot,
12-dot) to the same character code, each font size must be registered. If a character code
to which no font is defined is specified, a double-square space is output for the printer.
User-defined fonts must be registered in the following range:

Prohibiting APO during printing
Disable the APO function through the Printer Library (PRNOpen function) to prevent the APO
from being active during printing. If the Printer Library function is carried out after printing is
completed, the APO function will be automatically restored to the setting before the printing
started.
Note:
Since PRNOpen and PRNClose functions control the APO operation, do not allow the user
application to control it while the printer is being used.
CPU control while using the printer
While the printer is in use (between PRNOpen and PRNClose of the Printer Library function), the
CPU speed is locked at high speed for high-speed processing. When the printer is not in use, use
the Printer Library to close the printer.
Printer power
The power supply to the printer is turned on as long as it is being used (from when PRNOpen
function is called and until when PRNClose function is called through the Printer Library).
Printing bar codes
With the printer the following 1D symbologies can be printed through the CASIO original API.
The function of the Printer Library relevant to the “Printing bar codes” is as follows.
123
PRNBarcodeOut : Prints out specified bar code.
Printable symbology
The following 1D symbologies can be printed. Specify a desired symbology by making use of the
API.

• UPC-E
• NW-7
• Code39
• ITF
• Code128 (EAN128) See note below.
Note:
The EAN-128 can also be printed out if Code128 is specified and it is made to meet the EAN128
data format. However, it is not permitted to print an AI (Application Identifier) enclosed by a pair
of parentheses as ( ).
Height of bar code
It is possible to specify, in millimeter units, the bar code height to be printed. The allowable
specification range is as follows:
Height: 1 to 63 mm (when 58-mm paper width is used: 1 to 39 mm)
CD (Check Digit):
It is possible to calculate the check digit and specify whether it is added to the bar code.

Data correction:
JAN
• Accepts only the data in 7, 8, 12, and 13 digits.
• 7 and 8-digit data, and 12 and 13-digit data are printed in the reduced format and in the
standard format, respectively.
• 7 and 12-digit data are automatically added with C/D, and 8 and 13-digit data will be
re-calculated.
Code39
• If data does not have asterisks “*” before and after it, they are automatically added.
• If there is an asterisk “*” in the middle of data, an error results.
NW7
• Even if the addition of C/D is specified, it is not implemented.
• If any characters between A and D exist in the middle of data, or if the data does not begin
with a start character and end with a stop character, an error results.
• Characters between A and D are not interpreted on a case-sensitive basis.
125
UPC-E
• Accepts only the reduced format of data.
• If any data is entered before reducing it, an error results.
ITF
• If data forms with odd number of digits without a C/D, “0” is added to the beginning.
• If data forms with an even number of digits including a C/D, “0” is added to the beginning.
Code128
• Specify, as required, the start character, function character, code-set character, shift character,
and data character for the data.
(The above mentioned characters and stop character are, in general, called symbol
characters. Symbol characters other than data characters are called a special symbol
character.)
• For an ASCII code between 00h and 1Fh, “\”, “#”, “,”, and any one of special symbol
characters, special notation that adds a prefix of “\” will be used. This data will first be
replaced with a symbol character and then evaluated as the data (the notation method is
described later).
• If the start character is not specified, either the Code Set A or Code Set B is automatically
selected depending on the data character that appears first. However, if the code-set character
appears earlier than the data character, it is replaced with the start character. Note that the use
of Code Set C must be explicitly specified, since it cannot be automatically determined. In
addition, if a start character is specified in the middle of the data, error (2) occurs.
• A function character is not automatically inserted. It must be specified as necessary. However,
since no check is made to determine whether the function character is correctly used, an error
may result on decoding the data.
• A code-set character is automatically inserted. In addition, unnecessary code-set characters are
automatically eliminated.
• A shift character is not be automatically inserted.
• An error of (2) results if any character (80h to FFh) that is not permitted for use is specified.
• The objective data of Code Set C encoding shall consist of an even number of consecutive
numerical strings after Code Set C is shifted to. If the number of strings is odd, and error of (2)
results. More than two sets of even number of strings, if properly separated by FNC1, do not
result in an error. If any data other than numerical data and FNC1 appears, other code set is
automatically shifted to.
• A stop character is automatically appended.
All pieces of data except a code that ignores everything from the top to the delimiter shall be
handled as the objective of printing. Therefore, if a space is contained in the data, a data error
causes for codes other than Code39 or Code128.
126
Code128 symbol characters and their notation method:
• Start characters
If the start character is not specified, it is automatically determined from the character placed
at the top of the data. However, for using Code Set C, it is necessary to specify “\sC”.

• Code-set characters
Shifting to CODE A or B of the code-set characters is automatically performed. However, it is
necessary to explicitly specify “\sC” for shifting to Code Set C. To shift from Code Set C to
another code set it is necessary to specify either “\sA” or “\sB”. But, if a character belonging
to another code set appears under the condition where Code Set C is being specified, shifting
to that code set is automatically performed.

• If Code Set C is selected, characters 0 to 9 can be used, and are encoded for every two digits.
If the number of digits is odd, an error of (2) results. If a character other than 0 to 9 and a
function are specified, shifting to other code set is performed. No automatic return takes place.
• If character A of the code set in the above shown table appears, the code-set character (or start
character) of CODE A is automatically inserted. In the case of character B of the code set, the
code-set character (or start character) of CODE B is automatically inserted. In the case, of
character AB of the code set, shifting occurs only from Code Set C, since both characters are
assigned each code set. However, if the start character is not determined yet, the start character
of CODE B is inserted.

Printing with Print System
Through the Printer Library of the Print System it is possible to use the GDI function of
WindowsCE to create and print out the print data.
Configuration of the Print System:
The Print System configuration is shown below.
The application first creates (retrieve) the device
context of the printer.
Application
Print Library
GDI
If the application starts (CpStartDoc) the print job, the
spooler begins to create the spool file.
Create the print data with the GDI function for the
device context of the printer.
Print Driver
Spooler
If the application completes the print job, the spooler
also completes the creation of spool file. At this point in
time, print control from the application is terminated.
(From the point in time spooling is completed, actual
printing commences.)
Spool File
Language Monitor
The spooler will start printing after creation of the
spool file has been completed.
(Transmission of the spool file to the specified printer.)
Port Monitor
Hereafter, the language monitor monitors the printer.
(Displayed as an icon on the Taskbar.)
Built-in Printer
Figure 2.28
133
Printing process
Application uses the Printer Library of the Print System to create and print out the print data.
Printing from an application means a process up to the point the spooler creates a spool file via the
above described printer driver. The actual print job is where the spooler, after creating the spool
data, sends the print data via the language monitor/port monitor to the printer.
If printing begins, the corresponding icon is displayed in the Task Tray as shown below. Click this
icon to open the On-Printing dialog.
Task Tray (printing is now being performed)

Close the dialog
: The corresponding icon appears in the Task Tray.
Monitoring the printer
With the Print System, the finish of the application-side print job is at the point in time the spool
file of the print data is created. Subsequent monitoring of the printer is performed by the language
monitor via the port monitor. If the language monitor detects a printer error, it displays a dialog
box to post notice of the error.
Error display dialog
If an error occurs during printing, this error dialog is invoked.

2.12.2 Detections
Marker Detection
This function detects a marker which is pre-printed on the back of the paper roll in order to align
the print position. If no marker can be detected within 30 cm of a paper feed after this marker
detecting function has been carried out, the marker detection error is output and the printer
operation stops. To perform marker detection use the library function.
The marker width to detect differs depending on whether back barcode is enabled or disabled.
When back barcode is disabled: 5 mm
When back barcode is enabled: 10 mm
The following market detection modes can be specified using ESC commands.
Marker end detection
When marker detection is performed, the marker is detected when it has passed
over the marker sensor
Marker beginning
When marker detection is performed, the marker is detected when it enters the
detection
area over the marker sensor
The marker detection mode can be set in the registry. When the printer opens, the value is
acquired from the registry and acted on. The setting value can also be changed using an ESC
command, but the change will not be saved in the registry.

Closed mode
Setting change (ESC command)
Open mode

Notes:
• If an error (including a suspend process) occurs during detecting a marker, the marker
detecting operation stops and an error is returned.
• The marker detecting operation must be carried out when data to be printed (ex. Right after
opening the printer or right after all data are output for printing) do not exist in the buffer.
• When marker beginning detection is set, detection of markers (black) that are less than the
marker width when marker detection is performed is stopped. Therefore, this cannot be used
with paper that has black areas other than markers, such as paper with a back barcode. Only
use this mode to adjust the print start position when using paper from a previous model that
has a print start position different from the IT-9000.
Prior to producing your own formed papers that feature the marker detection, refer to Chapter
2.14.6 “Guide Line to Producing Formed Papers”.
The function of the Printer Library relevant to the “Marker Detection” is as follows.
PRNCheckMarker : Feeds paper to marker position.
137
Platen Open Detection
The platen open status is automatically detected before printing or paper feed takes place. If the
platen is open (platen open), the printing or paper feed operation is blocked.
Note:
If an attempt is due to print immediately after reset or opening/closing the platen, paper feed takes
place for several tens of dots before printing starts. This is performed to offset the backlash (gap)
between the printer motor gears produced by opening/closing the platen.
No Paper Detection
If there is no more paper being fed in during printing or paper feed, a “no paper” (paper end) is
detected and the printer automatically stops. Also, printing does not take place if paper has not
been loaded at the start of printing.
Supply Voltage (VDETP) Detection
During a printing operation, constant monitoring takes place to determine if there is a sufficient
supply of voltage (VDETP) for printing. If VDETP is detected (i.e. the voltage goes below
VDETP), the printer driver continues printing after restricting the voltage drop (due to printing) to
a minimum by reducing the number of simultaneously colored (printed in black) dots during
printing. However, if VDETP occurs when the number of simultaneously colored dots is at a
minimum, an error (Voltage error: VDETP) is output and the printing operation stops.
Note:
If a voltage error is output, resume the printing after replacing the battery pack.
138
Head Temperature Detection
To obtain the best possible printing results the printer head should be thermally controlled
according to the temperature that is sensed. In addition, in order to prevent a fire, etc., caused by
an abnormal rise in temperature at the head, the head temperature is always monitored so that it
does not exceed a specified temperature. If the head temperature exceeds the specified
temperature, the energy supply to the head is forcibly stopped.
Hardware Error Detection
If it is detected that the printer fails and continues to output the strobe signal (i.e. applying energy
to the paper), the printing operation stops.
Splash Cover Detection
Before printing, or before feeding paper, the splash cover status is detected automatically.
Printing, or feeding paper, cannot be performed while the splash cover is closed.
Head temperature hold function
The function controls head temperature at the right temperature at all times, or for a set period.
The head temperature hold function controls temperature as follows:
• If the head temperature has not reached the right temperature, it is raised until it reaches that
temperature, after which further temperature increase is stopped.
• When the head temperature hold function is enabled, head temperature is still maintained after
PRNClose is executed.
※ APO operates according to settings after PRNClose.
• The head temperature hold time can be set to constant, or in units of five minutes up to one
hour.
※ The specified time is the time elapsed after the last time the head temperature hold
command was sent. Printing time is included in the elapsed time, but suspended time is not.
• The head temperature will not rise while the I/OBOX AC adapter is connected (during
charging).
※ The battery does not charge while the head is being heated, so the head heating is stopped
while the I/OBOX AC adapter is connected.
When the head temperature hold function is enabled, thermal energy is applied to the printer even
when it is not printing, which negatively impacts print volume.
The back barcode reading function
This function can read a barcode on the back of the paper during printing, and acquire the decoded
result. There are two specifications of barcode that can be read, as stated below.

• Space between marker and barcode
This is a space (blank) to distinguish between the marker and the barcode.
• Barcode area
The combination of black and white bars represents 6 or 15 digits. Barcodes consist of a start bar,
data characters, parity bars and stop bar.
• Start bar
This bar indicates the start of the barcode. It consists of one black and one white bar.
• Character bars
Data characters are binarized and converted so that bit data “0” is represented by a black bar, and “1”
by a white bar.
One separator (white bar) is inserted for every four bits, to distinguish from markers.
For six digits, the first three digits (0-255) are represented by 8 bits, and the last three (0~127) by 7
bits.
For 15 digits (0-281474976710655), the barcode consists of two rows. The first 24 bits are on the right
side, and the last 24 bits on the left side. For six digits, binarized data is converted so that bit data “0”
is represented by a black bar, and “1” by a white bar, with a separator (white bar) inserted every four
bits.
• Parity bar (even parity for black bars)
This bar indicates even parity for the black bars from the start bar to the last data characters (the stop
bar is not included). It consists of one black or one white bar.
• Stop bar
This bar indicates the end of the barcode. It consists of one white and one black bar.

7. The instantly stops printing of the dot line currently printed and resets the error that occurs, and
then resumes printing from the dot line at which the printing was stopped. As a result, a ± 1
dot-line of deviation can occur.
8. It is difficult to avoid an error caused by VDETP or the head temperature through user
operation. Thus, this system always enables continuous printing after an error, irrespective of
whether it is explicitly specified or not. In order to forcibly discontinue printing after an error
clear the print data by sending the ESC command of “CAN” after the error has occurred.
9. A VDETP error that has occurred can be reset by battery pack replacement (Suspend/Resume).
However, even after the battery voltage is recovered through charging the battery pack, always
turn on and off the power.
10. For an error caused by the detected marker, the printing operation stops and an error is returned,
irrespective of whether “Continuous printing after error” is specified.
11. After VDETP or Head temperature error has occurred, print data is retained until a next print
request (text print, image print, etc.) is made even if power OFF or VDET2 occurs.
144

2.12.6 Guide Line to Producing Formed Paper
This chapter describes a guide line you must care when you produce your own formed papers.
The printer integrated in the terminal generates a marginal error on the printing position on paper.
The following explains a sample of formed paper.
While printing on a long formed paper, marginal error is accumulated. This deteriorates the
printing accuracy. To avoid the accumulation, it is recommended that multiple markers are located
at different locations in mid-course on the formed paper.
The below sample assumes that the distance from the marker to the print start position is A mm,
marginal error is ±2 mm and the height of character is 4 mm.

Normally the battery status is checked once every five seconds. Taking last immediate ten data of
the power voltage from AD converter, its average is calculated to classify the status into three
levels, either “Almost exhausted (10% of the capacity or less)”, “Low (30% of the capacity or
less)”, “O.K. (30 % of the capacity or more)”. When VDET1 occurs, the level is at 10% of the
capacity.

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.

2.13.7 Virtual OFF by Application
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 2.14, 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).
160
The functions of the System Library relevant to the “Virtual Off” are as follows.
: Set up ”Disable” for turning off the power on the terminal.
SysDisablePowerOff
: Sets up “Enable” or “Disable” for virtual turning off the power.
SysSetVirtualOffMode
SysSetVirtualOffModeEx : Sets up “Enable” or “Disable” for virtual turning off for panel,
screen, key operations, prohibition on APO, prohibition on
turning off the power, and setting CPU speed.
: Retrieves “Enable” or “Disable” status for virtual turning off the
SysGetVirtualOffMode
power.
161
2.13.8 Virtual OFF by System
The virtual off function by system is not supported by the terminal.
2.13.9 Charging/Supplying the Power
The optional Dual Battery Charger (HA-D32DCHG) can be used to charge battery packs (two at a
time). Mounting the terminal on USB Cradle (HA-H60IO), Cradle-type Battery Charger
(HA-H30CHG), or Ethernet Cradle (HA-H62IO) allows charging the battery pack while it is
installed in the terminal and supplying the power to the terminal.
2.13.10 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 2.16 ) appears and the power is turned off to protect the
integrated devices in the terminal.
X
X
Figure 2-38
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 2.17 )
appears when the power is turned on a next time.

2.14.1 Setting Password for Terminal
This is the password setting implemented in the terminal. 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.
2.14.2 Setting Encryption on SD Card
This function encrypts file in SD card which is integrated in the terminal (Windows Mobile
device) so that the file in the SD card cannot be read by other Windows Mobile device.
2.14.3 Setting Individual ID
Individual ID is written into a predetermined area in the FlashDisk in 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 IT-9000 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.
2.14.4 Setting Distributor ID
The individual ID and distributor ID can be used by the distributor and user to prevent illegal use
of applications by an unauthorized party at a time of installing or carrying out the illegally copied
applications 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.

Figure 4-2
Stand by for connection from the parent terminal. Data transmission starts when the connection is
completed.
CAUTION
- When Bluetooth is used for communication, the number of terminals involved in parent-child
communications is limited within a given space, because all terminals share the same bandwidth.
As a guideline, up to five pairs can communicate.
- Make sure all parent and child terminals have adequate battery level when communicating. If
power is cut off due to insufficient battery level during communication, a communications error
will occur.
- When a communications error occurs for any reason, processing resumes, starting with the
parent terminal searching for child terminals, and the child terminals standing by for connection
from the parent terminal.
- The MD5 checksum for each sent file is used to check integrity. When corruption is confirmed,
processing resumes, starting with the parent terminal searching for child terminals, and the child
terminals standing by for connection from the parent terminal.
267
- The child terminal changes the terminal name before communicating. When the reset on the rear
is used in this state, the terminal name stays as the changed name from the next reboot. If the rear
reset was used, it is necessary to use user disk clear to return to the default state, or reset the
terminal name manually.
