Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK Adds Support for Seven Barcode Types
In Addition to Recently Unveiling Support for DPM Barcode Types, the Company Has Now Introduced Support for Seven Other Barcode Symbols
October 22, 2019
Dynamsoft today announced its Barcode Reader software development kit, version 7.2, now supports seven additional barcode symbols and that other performance improvements were made to the SDK. These updates cover SDKs for Windows, Linux, Android and iOS platforms.
The newly added barcode types are widely used in various industries. The GS1 Databar (omnidirectional, truncated, stacked, stacked omnidirectional, limited, expanded, expanded stacked) is commonly found in grocery stores on produce labels. The PatchCode is commonly used to categorize documents during batch scanning. Maxicode (mode 2-5), developed by UPS®, is used to manage and track package shipments. Micro PDF417 is a smaller variant of the PDF417 used in transport, ID cards, and inventory management. Similarly, the Micro QR is a small variant of the QR code commonly used with smartphones. Finally, the GS1 Composite (combination of OneD and PDF417/Micro PDF 417) is commonly used in grocery stores.
The new symbol support is in addition to other updates that include improving the decoding speed for PDF417 and improving decoding capabilities for QR and Data Matrix bar codes that have cylinder-like deformations. The company had also recently announced Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK 7.2 is now capable of supporting Direct Part Marking (DPM) barcodes. This is ideal for customers in aerospace, automotive, electronic manufacturing, healthcare, telecommunications and other industries in need of tracking parts through their full life cycle.
DPM bar codes contain important information used to identify parts, provide manufacture dates, safety requirements, warranty information, and much more. However, they are in a class of their own in that they are difficult to decode. As a result, they require a special barcode reader due to a variety of unique scan and decode challenges. More details about the DPM solution are available here.
