Pretec will demonstrate its i-Disk RFID USB flash drive at CeBIT 2007. The company claims that the device is the smallest of its kind in the world.
Pretec i-Disk RFID combines a USB flash disk and RFID technology in a small, sturdy and waterproof construction, which can be conveniently incorporated with any system in need of both digital mass storage and easy identification.
With the feature of being automatically identified and data remotely retrieved when i-Disk RFID passes within the proximity of a RFID reader, the Pretec i-Disk RFID can be widely applied to variety of markets and applications such as hospitals, airports, warehouses, POS systems for access control, asset or inventory management.
Measuring 45.7×12.2×2.2mm, 25% smaller in volume than a US quarter coin, the i-Disk RFID is about 1/4 of the size of a typical USB flash drive.
Paper-less and easy access environment for hospital patient care can be achieved by using the Pretec i-Disk RFID as a tag (or bracelet, or necklace) functioning as an electronic portable medical health record and easy and yet secure personal identification.
Fabricated using a semiconductor MCP process, the Pretec i-Disk RFID is an ideal device for floppy disk replacement, personal identification tag or rugged industrial applications. With a capacity ranging from 128MB to 1GB, the Pretec i-Disk RFID is sampling now to select customers with mass production scheduled by the second quarter of this year.
