Industrial-temperature memory tokens for defense, mining, and medical uses introduced by ATEK Datakey

April 10, 2024
The memory tokens give the USB flash drive that applications call for, and can use a Datakey SlimLine receptacle instead of a USB connector.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – ATEK Access Technologies in Eden Prairie, Minn., is introducing the Industrial UFX series of the company's Datakey RUGGEDrive line of memory tokens for defense, mining, agriculture, industrial, and medical applications.

RUGGEDrive memory tokens provide USB flash drive data storage with industrial-temperature operation and optional pSLC NAND flash. Datakey Industrial UFX memory tokens differ from standard USB flash drives in three main ways.

First, the RUGGEDrive tokens use ATEK's proprietary SlimLine contact system and receptacles. Second, industrial UFX memory tokens are rated for operation over the industrial temperature range of -40 85 degrees Celsius. Third RUGGEDrive memory tokens use solid over-molded construction using an engineered thermoplastic.

Datakey Industrial UFX memory tokens give designers the USB flash drive their applications call for without the risks. Instead of using a USB connector, the embedded design can use a Datakey SlimLine receptacle.

Industrial UFX tokens will plug in, but USB flash drives and other USB devices will not. This reduces the threat of infection from malware that can be transported on USB flash drives.

Industrial UFX memory tokens are available in memory capacities from four to 64 gigabytes and come in six standard colors. Customization options include color matching, custom logo, laser-marking, and optional fixed BOM.
