2DTG offers Data Matrix encoding software on USB Dongle key (HASP® HL PRO by SafeNet, Inc.) fashioned as follows:
- Data Matrix encoding library interfaced to Windows 32, and
- Data Matrix Encoder - DEMO application build in Borland C++ Builder (includes source code)
2DTG’s Data Matrix Encoding SDK is remarkable for minimizing the symbol size. The special latch characters are used to compact various parts of the message to minimize the size of the Data Matrix. These characters allow switching from basic ASCII encoding to one or another encoding schemes when required. For example two digits may be packed into one byte, three letters of English alphabet into two bytes, and so on.
