Even More 2D Codes! Han Xin Code and DotCode
TEC-IT extended the barcode support in its products with two new 2D symbologies. Both symbologies were officially released by the AIM, the association for automatic identification and mobility. Han Xin Code The first two-dimensional symbology is named Han Xin Code. The Han Xin symbology was developed by AIM China and is optimized to encode Chinese characters. This 2-D symbology is intended as the main 2D code for applications and paper based communication in China. A single Han Xin Code symbol offers a huge maximum data capacity of up to 7827 numeric, 4350 ASCII or 2174 common Chinese region 1 or region 2 characters. Han Xin technology is in the public domain and can be used for free. This matrix symbology benefits from Reed-Solomon error correction (adjustable in 4 levels), offers advanced features like ECI and can be printed in 84 different sizes (square symbols which feature 23x23 up to 189x189 modules). DotCode The second 2D symbology is named DotCode. It was designed for high-speed, on-demand label printing or direct part marking with ink-jet and laser marking systems. The symbology was invented by Dr. Andrew Longacre, Jr. and is in the public domain. A DotCode symbol appears as an array of dots with selectable aspect ratio; the user can adjust the overall shape of a DotCode array between rectangular ribbons and nearly square symbols. DotCode symbols grow in proportion to the amount of encoded data. While the size of a single DotCode symbol is theoretically not restricted, it’s limited to 124 lines/columns. The symbology uses error correction features, it was designed to tolerate missing, extra or poorly-placed dots without sacrificing reading integrity. Advanced features like ECI (Extended Channel Interpretation) and structured append are available. Han Xin and DotCode SDK The barcode generator SDK TBarCode V11 is the first TEC-IT product supporting these two new 2D symbologies. Download and check out the brand-new TBarCode SDK V11.
