Anyone notice that the only acceptable MTBF calculation is:
MTBFours >= MTBFcompetitor_published
If the number that you get after a bunch of research dosen't meet this,
then they tell you it's "unacceptable", even if you calculate the other
guy's and it differs significantly from what they publish.

Got a need to read Bar codes? http://www.barcodechip.com
Bi-directional read of UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, JAN, and Bookland, with
two or five digit supplemental codes, in an 8 pin chip, with NO external parts.
