At the heart of our unique approach to electronic product design is our patent-pending technology IntAct. We've replaced the high-speed bus found in conventional designs with an Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)-like network. This distributed architecture is used to connect together pre-engineered modules to assemble products that exactly match the customer's requirements for communications, video, speed, power and expansion.

IntAct is in fact a tightly coupled set of innovative hardware and software technologies. Hardware elements provide a fast, efficient and predictable message passing route between components. Software elements provide a homogeneous Application Programming Interface (API) between components, irrespective of the network that connects them or even their physical construction.

IntAct modules cover an ever growing range of functions from Internet access, video-on-demand, e-commerce, smart card interface, satellite, ISDN, dial-up and Control area networks (CAN) to complete network computers. Each module is self-contained and has its own microprocessor controlling all the functions associated with that module.

Assembling products is no longer a major feat of engineering - instead it's a question of determining the desired data bandwidth and security between modules. The normal cost penalties associated with modular approaches are offset by the manufacturing economies of scale achieved by using standard modules across a range of different products.
