M-Systems Expands Its Leading USB Keychain Product Line With The DiskOnKey Pro

11/8/2002 - M-Systems, a leader in flash-based data storage products, announced the introduction of the DiskOnKey Pro, the latest addition to the DiskOnKey family line of USB keychain storage products. Based on the DiskOnKey Technology platform, the new device enhances the line by offering the same computing power only in a smaller and sleeker form factor at roughly half the size of the original DiskOnKey design. The DiskOnKey Pro will initially be available with storage capacities of 16, 32, 64 and 128MB, with 256 and 512MB capacities expected soon.

"DiskOnKey Technology expands M-Systems' presence in the market by offering the device's technological superiority combined with the flexibility to create customizable form factors like the DiskOnKey Pro," said Blaine Phelps, worldwide marketing manager for M-Systems' DiskOnKey Division. "The availability of a customizable solution represents an exciting development for the market as companies can now choose from two M-Systems' designs or they can create a device with the assurance of DiskOnKey Technology inside."

The DiskOnKey Pro measures 3-inches in length and when the cap is removed the USB portion is approximately 2.5-inches, with a maximum depth of a quarter of an inch, and the width measuring three-quarters of an inch. While capable of being produced to meet a partner's specifications, the DiskOnKey Pro is currently offered in a gray hue with removable colored side panels and a capacity identifier on the USB-drive portion. A unique feature of the DiskOnKey Pro is the moveable keychain fob that allows the owner to decide what section they would like to attach to their keys, the cap or the body. The device has been developed using the new DiskOnKey Technology platform with smaller internal components and the power of a 32-bit ARM7 CPU allowing applications such as KeySafe security, automatic boot, Winlogon and the MyKey personalization application.

The DiskOnKey Pro has undergone rigorous testing for reliability and durability, securing certification by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Testing Lab (WHQL), as well as receiving the certified-USB logo set by the USB-IF.

The DiskOnKey Pro will be offered with 16, 32, 64 and 128MB storage capacities with an MSRP of $34.99, $44.99, $69.99 and $114.99, respectively.
