MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA / ACCESSWIRE / May 18, 2017 / Exablaze and Solarflare have entered into an agreement which settles the recent patent dispute between the two companies. Both parties have withdrawn from continued legal action or further patent challenges. In order to avoid the possibility of future conflicts, Exablaze has been granted a license to a portfolio of Solarflare patents. Other terms of the settlement agreement are confidential. "We are pleased to have reached this resolution with Solarflare," said Dr. Greg Robinson, Chairman of Exablaze. "For the first time in a little over a year, potential customers of either company now have clarity, and both parties can now get on and compete in the marketplace, rather than in the courts," he added. In the meantime, Exablaze has had a productive year in the Network Interface Card side of its business. "We have further refined our ExaNIC X10 and X40 NICs, which remain the world's lowest latency network cards, and we have also introduced the ExaNIC GM, our PTP Grandmaster, and the ExaNIC HPT, a 250 picosecond resolution network capture device," said Robinson. Exablaze also applies its knowledge of ultra-low-latency networking to the switching space. The company produces a 96ns Layer 2 switch, and, this year, released the FastMux, a 49ns multiplexer for 10Gbit/s Ethernet. "Having both our NIC and switch products based on FPGA technology provides us with a great deal of flexibility and responsiveness when it comes to rolling out new features and performance improvements," said CTO Dr. Matthew Chapman. "Our customers benefit because they can stay on the cutting edge without having to continually upgrade hardware." Exablaze turns four years old next week. "We took in our first outside investment in the second half of last year, with a view to further building on our existing profitability and footprint," said Robinson. "Our rapid revenue growth reflects a growing and supportive customer base. One of the joys of our work is being able to interact with engaged expert users and to have the agility to respond meaningfully to their ideas. Many of the new features or products on our roadmap have that genesis and we look forward to rolling them out." Exablaze designs and manufactures Ultra-Low Latency (ULL) network devices for Financial Traders, Big Data Analytics, High Performance Computing, Data Centres and Telcos. Exablaze is a leader in Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology. Its products play a crucial role in computing environments where performance is critical, from North America to Europe, Asia, and Australia.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The deadline for assessing personal property tax is fast approaching. Arkansans have until Wednesday, May 31, 2017, to assess personal property and avoid paying a 10 percent penalty. State law requires Arkansas drivers to assess vehicles, pay property taxes and have current insurance before vehicle registration can be renewed. With the deadline less than two weeks away, now is the time to use Gov2Go to take care of your assessment and get reminders for other important government deadlines throughout the year. Many Arkansans aren’t aware of the assessment deadline or simply forget—property assessment, tax payments and vehicle registrations are all handled by different government agencies at different times of the year. Gov2Go is an award-winning “digital government assistant” that tracks all these and other relevant government interactions. When a deadline is approaching, Gov2Go sends personalized reminders and lets users take care of everything in one place on their favorite mobile devices. Gov2Go is free and available for iPhone and Android smartphones, Apple Watch and on the web at getgov2go.com.

The Arkansas Streamline Auto Renewal system (ARSTAR), offered by the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration (DFA), makes it easy to renew vehicle tags online in less than five minutes, at no additional charge. To renew online, you must have your personal property assessed first. “When drivers take care of their vehicle registration renewal requirements on time, they can experience a fast and stress-free tag renewal process at arstar.com without standing in line at a state revenue office to do everything the day their tags expire,” DFA Spokesman Jake Bleed said. “Gov2Go offers a convenient way for Arkansans to assess and pay property taxes, if their county offers those services, and renew their tags online.” Gov2Go is the first citizen-centric digital government platform in the nation.

Patent
NIC Inc | Date: 2015-05-21

A rotary security seal assembly includes a housing body defining a socket including a top opening and a peripheral socket wall. A rotor body is receivable in the socket that includes a top flange, a bottom flange, and a center body area between the top and bottom flanges. A locking filament includes a first end area permanently secured to the housing body by hardened material forming the housing body and a second end area dimensioned and configured to be received in and extend at least in part through a housing locking filament receiving bore defined by the housing body and a rotor locking filament receiving bore defined by the rotor body.

Patent
NIC Inc | Date: 2013-04-17

A security lock bolt for sealing objects against unauthorized access includes a lock bolt having two bolt locking features that cooperate with two locking features that cooperate with a locking cylinder and transparent cap member secured to the locking cylinder, respectively. The bolt locking feature cooperating with the locking cylinder secures the bolt from unauthorized separation from the locking cylinder and the locking feature that cooperates with the transparent cap is visible to an observer outside the cylinder and locks the bolt against separation from the transparent cap member. The transparent cap locking arrangement provides an indication of full locking of the lock bolt within the locking cylinder. The bolt locking feature associated with the transparent cap member is integrated with an overmolded bolt body casing.


Patent
NIC Inc | Date: 2015-11-20

A lock bolt assembly includes a bolt body comprising metal and having a proximal end area, a distal end area, and a circumferential locking groove. A locking cylinder comprises metal and has an inner cylinder bore including a cylinder locking feature. The cylinder locking feature and the locking groove are arranged to be irreversibly coupled to each other when the bolt body is fully received in the inner cylinder bore. A transparent cap member is connected to the locking cylinder that includes an axial bore. The cap member defines a locking abutment in the axial bore and a keyway substantially vertically aligned with the locking abutment. A bolt body casing is permanently attached to the bolt body and defines a key element situated in the keyway and a locking finger engaging the locking abutment in an irreversible manner when the locking groove is irreversibly coupled to the cylinder locking feature.
