Our copying software, which was developed in-house, has
the same »Look & Feel« in
all altec CopyStation models.
The user interface can be switched
between German and English – further
languages are availble as an option.
The Job Wizard is a key part
of the software. It is used to specify all parameters of
the copy job – Name of the card image, number of copies,
whether verification is required and configuration of the
1.) Software option for parallel verification.
2.) Software option for creating and copying smaller
image files (Short Image Copy). This option
creates smaller image files if the master (source ) memory
media is only
partly filled with user data. This results in faster programming
of the target memory media.
3.) Optional software
interface for data exchange with external application to allow customization
of individual memory cards, e.g. serialization or data encryption.
4.) Software option for programming OTP (One
Time Programmable) SD and MMC cards.
5.) Software option to set a temporary or permanent
write protection flag on SD
Card or MMC.
The temporary write protection can be reset by the software.
The High-Speed CopyStation Ultra provides two different
copying methods for copying the data:
1.) Image Copy (default method) – an image
of the entire contents of the memory media is created and then copied to
the target memory media.
Advantages: A 1:1 copy of the memory media is
created. Accordingly, all sectors of the target memory media are overwritten.
This method is supported by all memory media file systems.
Disadvantages: Copying is relatively time consuming
because all of the bytes of the original memory medium are copied.
2.) Short Image Copy (option) – only the
data sectors which are currently being used are copied.
Advantages: Significant time-saving if the master
(source ) memory media is only partly filled with user data.
Disadvantages: If the target memory media has
already been used, some of the unused blocks may still contain old data.
For maximum benefit, the data on the source memory media should not be fragmented.
