…CLAIMS SMALLEST OPTICAL CHARACTER READER…

By CBR Staff Writer

And Fujitsu Ltd claims to have developed the world’s smallest optical character recognition system that can read Japanese characters. The new product is designed to be connected to Fujitsu personal computers such as the FMR series and the proprietary FM G-series and K1500 series business computers, and a model is also planned for the newly-relased FM-V series of DOS/V machines. The product is called Dataeye-Pico. The product uses a RISC chip and can read at the rate of 10 A4 pages per minute. The entry level model can read some 3,784 characters per minute. It weighs about 33 lbs and measures 13.2 by 13.5 by 8.5. Fujitsu hopes to sell 5,000 of the units over the next three years, priced at $11,670 a time.
