Since 2002 a call to reduce lead content has started to appear in the electronics industry. Concerned with lead's harmful health effects and its pollution of the environment from industrial waste, the European Union enacted legislation to ban the sale of electronic products containing lead starting in 2006. The United States, Japan and Mainland China are considering similar legislation. Heeding the trend for a greener Earth and showing concern for the consumer, EPoX is one of the first companies to adopt lead-free manufacturing. Starting from the end of 2004, all the company's new Bluetooth dongles adopted strict lead-free fabrication process, which conforms to the new EU regulations.
The new Bluetooth dongle (BT-DG06B) adopts the Bluetooth version 2.0 announced by the Bluetooth SIG in 2004. It performs outstandingly in piconet applications. In the past, if a user had to simultaneously connect to several Bluetooth-enabled devices and perform multiple tasks (for example: synchronizing the address book from their Bluetooth PDA, using a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and listening to a digital broadcast with a Bluetooth headset), the voice quality would be affected by the other operations. The new Bluetooth 2.0 standard has made significant improvements in multi-tasking. Not only can it enable speedy connection of multiple devices, but also guarantees normal performance during multi-tasking in a piconet. In addition, the new Bluetooth standard raises wireless transmission speed significantly to almost 3 times the speed of the old version.
The BT-DG06B has a transmission range of up to 20 meters (Class 2) and uses a Toshiba driver, which provides comprehensive Bluetooth applications and stereo audio transmission function. The operational interface is user-friendly and supports automatic detection of different languages. It is backwards-compatible with Bluetooth 1.x, and supports both Windows (Win98SE/ME/2000/XP) and Mac (Mac OS 10.1.18 or later) operating systems.
