Rugged Keys & Tokens

Our keys and tokens are available with a wide range of memory, holding from 1Kbit to 32GByte of data with industry standard interface protocols including Microwire, I²C, SPI, SD and USB. They’ve been built to withstand water, mud, dust, shock and vibration – and are often used in environments where they are exposed to chemicals, electrostatic discharge, sterilisation and extreme temperatures, conditions where consumer memory would not survive.  If rugged SD or USB is what you need, then look no further!  The easiest way to find the best solution for your requirement is to call us on 01794 379154 and tell us about your application, we can then recommend the most appropriate memory configuration to solve your design headache.

 

Our serial memory range features 1Kbit to 64Mbit serial memory chips enclosed in an ultra-rugged package with a specialised connection system which is equally robust. These memory keys or tokens with their matching connector allow you to easily and reliably move data in/out of your non-networked device especially if that device operates in harsh environments.
The serial memory keys or tokens are ideally suited for applications such as user identification, access control, parameter uploads, limiting use, anti-counterfeiting, feature enable, crypto ignition keys, firmware updates and data logging.
Proven to be ultra-rugged and super reliable in countless different applications in industries including military, railways, medical, industrial machinery, food and drink manufacture, vehicle fuelling and agriculture.
Our serial memory range will be available, unchanged and supported for longer than your device will be in the field, giving you total piece of mind that you will not be going through a costly re-design process to remove obsolescent memory products.
