1. NEW: Upgrade Kit for High-Speed
From now on your High-Speed
can be 50% faster!
It is quite easy: Simply order our Upgrade Kit for High-Speed
CopyStation now and transform your current system into the
With the convenience of our modular designed High-Speed CopyStation
Ultra you can copy content to up to 120 cards with 2 GB in
an hour. This equals a transfer rate of approx. 70 MB/sec.
This number already includes the time for the change between
two CardBoxes. The absolute data throughput is approximately
2. NEW: Serialization with USB Stick CopyStation
As a third optional software for our USB Stick
with seven USB slots we now offer a software interface for
data exchange with external applications to allow customization
of individual USB sticks.
When this software feature is activated, each USB stick will
be shown as logical drive under Windows XP after it has been programmed
with content, and an external software program is started. Serial number
and logical drive letter of each USB memory stick are passed on to this
program. Please note: not every USB memory stick has an individual serial number. In
cases with no serial number, a series of zeros is transferred.
The external software needs to be programmed by the customer
according to his needs. This programming can also be done by altec’s
Development Divsion. For instance this program could create
specific data files, which are then copied to the individual USB stick.
This allows an individualization of each memory stick’s content.
Please contact our sales team, Divsion
CopyStations Rest Of World,
for further information.
3. Improved microSD CardBox
We have further improved our microSD CardBox by installing
a so called Floating Base.
When the CardBox is open, the contact pins
do not protrude anymore. This way they are better protected
when the memory cards are inserted.
The price for the improved CardBox for altec High-Speed
remains the same.
This is only one of many measures which we have taken
over the last years to further develop and improve our products.
4. NEW: SiliconDrive USB Blade

SiliconDrive USB Blade will be available in December 2007. A Host Developer
Tool Kit will then be available as well.
Initially, SiliconDrive USB Blade will be available in

robotics where easy installation, bootability, small form factors as well
as environmentally ruggedness at low prices are in demand.
