1. 15th anniversary of altec ComputerSysteme GmbH

On August 6th, 2007, altec ComputerSysteme GmbH celebrates its 15th anniversary.

altec is international recognized for being one of the leading manufacturers of CopyStations for mobile memory media as well as for being manufacturer of industrial memory products such as Solid State Disks and Flash Card Drives.

Not only its continuously expanding portfolio but many other steps added to altec’s success. In 1991, altec started selling SanDisk memory products and is now one of the leading SanDisk distributors in Germany.

In 2000, the first CopyStation for mobile memory media was launched. The introduction of Robo CopyStation, the first automated CopyStation worldwide, in 2005 was another milestone in altec’s history.

But the name altec is already known since 1986 for innovative technical solutions, because then the altec electronic GmbH was founded. Following the boom in digital electronics, altec’s activities soon focused on today’s business areas..

On August 6th, 1992, altec electronic GmbH was renamed to today’s altec ComputerSysteme GmbH. More...

2. High-Speed CopyStation Software Update

The new High-Speed CopyStation Version 3.4.0.4 is immediately available.

Besides some minor changes – like displaying the drive letter when mapping a card or user log off – the optional software feature «Short Image Copy» is no longer restricted to FAT16- formatted cards.

Even memory media with higher capacities, which are FAT32-formatted, can be duplicated by creating a short image thus making the process much faster.

We recommend this free update to all our customers using a High-Speed CopyStation.

If you would like to update your software version, please ask our sales team. Please adhere to the installation guide when you update your software version.

3. Life Expectancy Estimator Software

SiliconSystems offers a so called «Life Expectancy Estimator» Windows software tool for those of you interested in calculating the life span of solid state storage media.

The life span is calculated by entering the average data rate, the fixed data space as well as other information of the storage medium such as capacity and the endurance (guaranteed writes).

Information on the type of wear leveling used is also needed. In applications, in which for example an operating system is taking up most of the capacity of the medium, static wear leveling used in all SiliconDrive products prolongs the life span deliberately.

If for example 50% of the capacity is used by the operating system, the life expectany of the storage medium doubles due to the patended SiliconDrive static wear leveling compared to storage media with dynamic wear leveling.

Please contact Mr. Werner Bleckmann, Phone +49 511 98381-65, Mr. Soeren Papenberg, Phone -24 or Mr. Hans-Juergen Hagemann, Phone -56, to learn more about this software tool.
