Pretec Unveils 4GB i-Disk Touch And e-Disk II+

At CES 2006 Pretec Electronics announced its largest capacity fingerprint USB flash storage device: i-Disk Touch, a multi-function 4GB USB flash storage device with fingerprint biometrics security. The fingerprint security makes sure data can only be accessed by up to ten authorized users without the need to bring keys or remember passwords. It not only secures data access, but the data itself; depending on user requirements individual files or entire directories can be securely encoded with Pretec i-Disk Touch and made available again when needed. The biometrics security function of i-Disk Touch is only one part of a suite of security offerings which also includes additional software and/or hardware protection of data access through password protection; a protected key which can lock the PC from unauthorized use; or as a parental guard to prevent unauthorized access to forbidden websites, etc.

Instead of using the traditional "area" fingerprint sensor which requires the use of multiple devices, the "stripe" fingerprint sensor in i-Disk Touch is coupled with a new monolithic single-chip solution.

Another Pretec USB product that debuted at CES was the Pretec e-Disk II+, a multiple function 512MB USB flash drive with built-in card reader, which such device can expand from 512MB to 4.5GB by inserting an optional Pretec 4GB SD/MMC card.

Pretec e-Disk II+ supports both full-size SD/MMC cards and RS-MMC 4.1 (or MMCMobile). e-Disk II+ with different style housings which supports specific memory card interfacing such as miniSD or Memory Stick Duo are also available now. Different capacities of embedded flash memory can be custom-tailored for specific OEM/ODM customers upon request.

Both i-Disk Touch and e-Disk II+ are available now with mass production scheduled next month.
