1. NEU: altec USB Stick CopyStations are now even faster

altec has completely re-designed the software for the USB Stick CopyStations to allow the copying speed to be increased even further.

In-house tests were made with USB CopyStations using USB Sticks from various manufacturers. Depending on the USB stick type and speed of the USB connection, the USB Stick CopyStation 21 Ultra achieved more than 90 MBytes/s for all of the 21 Slots together. And the USB Stick CopyStation achieved more than 40 MByte/s for all 7 Slots together.

Benefit from the new improved software. The USB Stick CopyStations are already being shipped with the new software version. Updates for already shipped USB Stick CopyStations are available from altec free of charge.

Reduce your costs through fast copying of USB memory sticks and benefit to the new, reduced prices.

Our sales team for SiliconSystems are happy to answer your questions on the outstanding features of the SiliconDrive family and on the merger of the two companies.


4. Interview: Sören Papenberg about SunDisk WORM

Sören Papenberg
Sales Manager
altec Computer Systeme GmbH

What is SD WORM?
WORM stands for "Write Once Read Many".
The SanDisk WORM SD card can only be written to once and is then write protected.

What are the advantages of WORM Technology?
According to SanDisk, a WORM SD card can store data reliably for up 100 years. This makes it far superior to all currently used digital media. In addition, the data can no longer be changed or manipulated after writing.

What are the current applications for this technology?
Due to the very high life time, the WORM SD card is particularly suitable for long term archiving of data. There is currently no alternative, comparable memory technology which guarantees such a long lifetime. A further advantage of WORM technology is where it is vital to ensure that the original data has not been modified.
Examples of such applications are e.g. storage for police photographs, interviews of witnesses, data from the courts, results of electronic voting, security cameras and black boxes or flight recorders. The WORM Technology makes it practically impossible to manipulate the data afterwards.

How can I use a WORM SD card?
Due to the command structure of the SanDisk WORM SD cards, normal conventional flash card readers cannot be used for writing. You must use suitable SD flash card readers which can be purchased e.g. from altec. After writing, WORM SD cards can be read as often as required from any normal SD card reader.

Please contact our Sales Manager, Sören Papenberg for additional information on SD WORM cards from SanDisk and the required flash card drives.
