BrainTrain Releases Chinese Language Version of IVA-2 Integrated Visual and Audio Test of Attention

BrainTrain, Inc., has announced the release of a Chinese Language version of its IVA-2 computerized test of visual and auditory attention. The new Chinese version of the software gives the test administrator the option of electing to administer the test in Cantonese, Mandarin, or Taiwanese. These Chinese language options are offered in addition to already available foreign language versions in Spanish, Swedish, Canadian French, and Japanese. Adding the Language Option to the test kit allows the clinician to administer the test in any of these languages. All written and spoken test instructions are presented by the computer in the language selected.

The IVA-2, available for use on Windows PCs, is used by mental healthcare professionals worldwide to help them evaluate their clients’ attention and mental functioning abilities. BrainTrain offers a remote version of the IVA-2 allowing clients to safely take the test at home or while maintaining social distance in the office using an iPad. Secure results can be immediately uploaded to the clinician’s computer.

The IVA-2 provides a unique report writing system (English only). The clinician can select from a variety of different kinds of reports, which may include not only IVA-2 results but also clinical history, presenting symptoms, other psychological issues, clinical observations, and rating scale results. IVA-2 results can also be integrated with BrainTrain’s MeSA test of Executive Functioning, if the clinician has this test installed on the same computer. The IVA-2 reports can be easily edited by the clinician and incorporated into a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation.

The IVA-2 is QEEG and fMRI validated and has been found by many clinicians to be highly sensitive to attention and response control problems.

For more information about BrainTrain’s IVA-2 Test of Attention, professionals are invited to visit the BrainTrain website at or directly link to the IVA-2 page at To speak with a BrainTrain sales representative, call 800-822-0538 or 804-320-0105. A FREE trial of the IVA-2 test is available to qualified users.

Credence Security Appoints Kevin Buchler as Head of Forensics

Kevin Buchler has been named the Head of Digital Forensics & Incident Response at Credence Security: the PAN-EMEA specialty distributor of cybersecurity, digital forensics, governance, risk, and compliance solutions. Kevin will lead the digital forensics business across the Middle East and India region. Buchler is a seasoned sales and channel professional with a proven track record delivering results in all aspects of the channel community, from specialized resellers, distribution, and vendors at companies like MCMS, LG Electronics, Mustek Distribution, and Acer.

“I’m excited to join the largest digital forensics focused distributor in the region,” said Buchler. “They not only have an unparalleled understanding of the region, but also a wonderful reputation for delivering leading digital forensic technologies and solutions.” Buchler most recently ran sales and channel across Africa for digital forensics vendor MCMS – Detego.

Credence Security is built on four focus pillars of the business: Continuous Adaptive Risk and Trust Assessment, Data Protection and Governance, Digital Forensics and Incident Response and Identity, Payments and Data Security. Unlike most other distributors, Credence Security takes a consultative ‘value-add’ solution approach, collaborating with partners and customers to understand their needs, both from a technology and business perspective.

“Buchler’s hire is timely, when it comes to the ever-growing increase of cyberattacks, with both the private and government sectors feeling the effects,” said Garreth Scott, Credence Security’s Managing Director. “Indeed, regional industries including banking & finance, oil & gas and critical infrastructure are constantly finding themselves in the crosshairs of cybercrime, making them the most heavily targeted sectors in the region.” The UAE, for instance, has seen a 250% increase in cyberattacks in the past year, with phishing and ransomware incidents increasing rapidly in frequency.

The global Digital Forensics market is expected to reach USD 7410.9 million by 2025 with the emergence of computing shaped by the Internet of Things (IoT) and the rapid increase in the number of mobiles, computers, and other electronic devices across the globe. Growth in the Digital Forensic sector is further driven by increases in financials-related crimes, including insurance fraud, investment fraud, robbery, forgery, identity theft. The outbreak of COVID-19 and its aftermath are expected to boost the digital forensics market as it helps to tackle increased fraudulent activities.

“We are committed to expanding our already well-established channel community across the Middle East, Africa, and India region while continuing to bring leading global digital forensics vendors to the region,” said Philip Cherian, Credence Security’s Channel Director. “We see ourselves as an extension of our vendors in providing pre- and post-sales support.”

New Vishay -80V Automotive Grade MOSFET is released by New Yorker Electronics

NORTHVALE, New Jersey, USA – New Yorker Electronics has announced its distribution of the new Vishay Siliconix AEC-Q101-qualified P-Channel -80V TrenchFET® MOSFET offering an industry-low maximum on-resistance of 17.3mΩ  at 10V in the compact 5.13mm by 6.15mm PowerPAK SO-8L single package with gullwing leads.

With the lowest on-resistance of any -80V P-Channel device, the new Vishay Siliconix SQJA81EP increases power density and efficiency in automotive applications. The SQJA81EP’s on-resistance is 28-percent lower than the closest competing device in the DPAK package — while offering a 50-percent smaller footprint — and 31-percent lower than previous-generation solutions.

The low on-resistance minimizes power losses from conduction while allowing higher output for increased density. The device’s -80V rating provides the safety margin required to support several popular input voltage rails, including 12V, 24V, and 48V systems. The Vishay MOSFET’s increased power density saves PCB space by reducing the number of components needed in parallel. As a P-Channel device, the SQJA81EP enables simpler gate drive designs that don’t require the charge pump needed by its n-channel counterparts.

The gullwing leads allow for increased automatic optical inspection (AOI) capabilities and provide mechanical stress relief for increased board-level reliability. These features make the Vishay P-Channel MOSFET ideal in applications for reverse polarity protection, battery management, high side load switching and LED lighting in automobiles.

Features & Benefits:

    Gate charge down to 52 nC at 10 V reduces losses from gate driving Compact 5.13 mm by 6.15 mm PowerPAK® SO-8L single package with gullwing leads High temperature operation to +175°C provides ruggedness and reliability Gullwing leads increase board-level reliability Lead (Pb)-free, halogen-free, and RoHS-compliant 100 % Rg and UIS tested


    Reverse Polarity Protection Battery Management High Side Load Switching LED Lighting in Automobiles

Or they can add drama to picture with a stunning sunset, for example. The sky replacer doesn’t simply cut and paste the sky, it automatically adjusts the entire photo to fit the new atmosphere.

Faster and more precise editing with tool upgrades

Removing backgrounds and objects from a photo and combining images in a photomontage are the most popular edits in Photo Studio. In Version 11, the Erase, Cut-out and Photomontage tools have been improved to make these edits even smoother. Specifically, Photo Studio 11 offers:

    Up to 7 x faster erasing of distracting objects. More accurate subject cut-out thanks to edge enhancement. New background blurring tool for portrait photos. New content for creating fun photomontages.
