Promwad partners with Asian chip vendors to offer cost-effective electronic designs in Europe

VILNIUS, Lithuania, 2017-Aug-04 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Promwad Electronics Design House has partnered with leading technological fabless companies in China and Southeast Asia to offer its clients cost-effective electronics product development from the center of Europe and to manufacture any batch size of new devices with priority tech support.

Promwad was one of only a few design houses in the EMEA region authorized by Allwinner, one of the leading Chinese chip manufacturers. Promwad’s engineers design electronics based upon Allwinner components and provide tech support during the entire life cycle of the designed devices:

  • tablet PCs, multimedia and portable devices based on Allwinner SoC A series;
  • TV set-top boxes with OTT and IPTV based on Allwinner SoC H series;
  • dash cameras, video cameras and action cameras based on Allwinner SoC V series;
  • onboard multimedia systems for vehicles based on Allwinner SoC T series.

Allwinner was founded ten years ago; its headquarters are based in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. In 2013 and 2014 this chip vendor was the world’s largest supplier of application processors for Android tablets.

Also Promwad became an official partner of Telink, Shanghai, and has significantly expanded its expertise in the fields of Bluetooth and BLE. This chip vendor specializes in Bluetooth and Zigbee for IoT and wearable electronics, remote controls, smart lighting and smart toys.

The engineers of Promwad have a lot of experience with the most popular chipsets of other vendors: TI CC265x, Silabs EFR32 Blue Gecko, Nordic nRF, Qualcomm/CSR10xx, and Dialog DA1458x. And now Telink TLSR826x BLE SoC has been added to this list; this system on chip has low power consumption, supports Zigbee, 6LoWPAN/Thread, and HomeKit.

Promwad maintains cooperation with the company Realtek from Taiwan and uses its chips to design network equipment from CPE – routers, gateways, WiFi hotspots to operators-side telecom equipment such as unmanaged and managed switches.

“Today the center of the semiconductor industry’s innovations and manufacture is shifting to Asia. Traditional chip vendors from the USA and Europe face growing competition from this region. Our customers demand functional and cost effective solutions to be designed at closer location such as Belarus or Lithuania and manufactured in Asia, that’s why establishing close links with Asian chip makers is a natural step for us,” says Ivan Kuten, the Business Developer of Promwad. “Namely by using such cooperation we cover our most growing capabilities in tablets, consumer gadgets, STB, CPE and multimedia devices. Now our customers in the EU and North America can create new hi-tech devices with controlled costs, tech support in English and manufacturing facilities in Europe or Asia.”

Banks Tighten Commercial Real Estate Lending and Interest Rate Hikes Are on the Horizon Says the Fed; Opens Window of Opportunity for Alternative Financing

Ascend Capital Partners steps in to fill the void, says Managing Partner Eric Fedewa.

Washington, DC, USA — Federal Reserve Bank Chair Janet Yellen testified that the Fed will likely continue its plans to implement federal funds rate hikes and balance sheet normalization measures in order to gradually raise short and long-term interest rates.

This, along with the May release of the Fed’s senior loan officer survey, highlights a “closing window of opportunity for affordable financing from commercial lenders,” according to Eric Fedewa, Ascend Capital Partners Managing Partner. The senior loan officer survey indicates that there will be a tightening in traditional lending practices for the commercial real estate sector.

With these factors in mind, Fedewa said Ascend Capital Partners can fill some of the void in traditional financing for commercial real estate by offering financing alternatives such as inexpensive institutional debt, bridge financing, and equity.

“The Fed’s May report concurs with the tightening trends we’ve been observing this year in traditional lending for commercial loans. The need for alternative financing is clear,” said Fedewa.

“The tightening of traditional lending sources comes at an inopportune time for investors as the new administration is trying to heat up the U.S. economy,” said Fedewa, noting that a tightening of monetary policies on behalf of the Fed could raise lending costs for alternative and traditional lenders alike.

“The strengthening economy is creating demand, yet traditional financing practices have tightened. Unfortunately, the window in which alternative lending sources can provide inexpensive financing could be limited as potential Fed rate hikes loom on the horizon,” he said.

Ascend Capital Partners has expanded its financial service offerings and added several new offices with strong teams of financial experts in prime market areas.

“We’ve expanded our Washington, DC area headquarters and are adding offices in Boston, New York City, Sarasota, Florida, Austin, and San Francisco. We’ve added new professionals to the D.C. team who are all top performers in their fields and can provide a broad range of services to our present and prospective clients,” he said.

“We’re not only assisting our customers with financing, but we also offer consulting and strategic advisory services,” said Anne Brensley, an attorney by trade who heads up the firm’s advisory business:

Brensley has been successfully facilitating financial deals, directly providing equity, and consulting on complex real estate matters for the past ten years.

“We’ve been able to assist in changing government attitudes towards projects, walking developers through rezoning issues, and helping owners ‘right-size’ their capital structure. Ascend has seen an unaddressed need for bridge funding with EB-5 projects, and we’ve helped our clients utilize an array of specialized funding vehicles to get their projects completed,” she said.

Ascend Capital Partners provides financing options as well as advisors in several different areas of the commercial real estate financial sector.

For instance, Fedewa and Jud Villa worked together in Florida funding commercial loans. Villa is also an expert in single family home, “fix and flip, and fix and hold” deals. “We have so many ways to assist our borrower/clients, but helping them make smart choices and matching them up with financing,” said Villa.

Rob Merkle and Vince Lane round out the Ascend commercial real estate team. Lane has been a real estate developer, and also has expertise in high tech and international business. He splits time between Austin and San Francisco. Merkle heads up the New York City office, where he has worked for years and overseen billions of dollars in deals in and around Manhattan.

In college, Merkle played football for The University of Notre Dame. He said: “I know about teams, and this is a great one. We cover some of the most dynamic markets in the country, and our people are aggressive and seasoned professionals.”

“In markets like San Francisco and Austin, there’s a huge need for the type of innovative and alternative financing that Ascend offers. Banks are not lending, but we’re picking up the slack,” said Lane.

“We have sources which include debt funds, private equity, hedge funds, and our own managed funds,” said Fedewa. “With our decades of expertise, we will assist in finding the most efficient capital stack for your project.”

Souleye, New Age Hip Hop Rapper, Announces the Eagerly Awaited WILDMAN Album- Releasing June 16, 2017!

On June 16, 2017, thought-provoking hip-hop rapper Souleye will release his long awaited full-length record, Wildman.

Los Angeles, CA, August 04, 2017 – On June 16, 2017, thought-provoking hip-hop rapper Souleye will release his long awaited full-length record, Wildman. The Los Angeles based artist teamed up with house duo Crush Effect, comprising Jess Molloy and Dave Veith, to produce an exceptionally eye-opening hip-hop and electronic fused album.

Wildman represents a mindful and musically engaging listening experience. A socially conscious artist, Souleye delivers an innovative and intense lyric flow that drips with passion. His clever references outline a positive sense of being. In “Follow Your Heart,”the debut single from Wildman, Souleye discusses overcoming hesitations with self-awareness and self-motivation in order to follow your own passions. His rhythmiclinesweave in and out of the down-tempo grooves and musical stylings of Crush Effect. Molloyand Veith blend elements of electronic, R & B,hip hop, and trip-hop to create a psychedelic and atmospheric album that occupies the space between a traditional compilation record and a concept album.

“One of the reasons so many pop and hip hop albums don’t sound cohesive is that those 12 tracks were recorded in 12 different studios with 12 different producers,” says Veith, of Crush Effect. “It was nice to do a full record, to build that sound from song to song.”

In addition to Crush Effect, the album features guest appearances by an array of upcoming and renowned artists, incorporating fresh, melodic hooks into each song. The album includes focus tracks such as, “Snow Angel” (Ft. Alanis Morissette), “Hip Hop Medicine” (Ft. Dustin Tavella), “Classic” (Ft. Chantal Kreviazuk, Chachillie), “Fountain of Youth” (Ft. Wade Morissette) and the upcoming single and title-track, “Wildman” (Ft. Lynx).

Souleye is a one-of-a-kind artist making a statement in the hip hop and electronic scene. He continues to shape his signature style with inspiring and poetic rhymes. His carefully selected collaborators offer creative instrumentation that only enhanceSouleye’s enlightened lyrics.
