Secure Memory

PLUG series

Secure Memory Plug Tokens

For additional security, Datakey offers the Unique ID Secure Memory Plug Token. The Unique ID Plug Token uses an I2C interface and has a capacity of 1.5 Kb.  Plug tokens feature:

  • Foldable Stainless-Steel Bail – The plug token's stainless steel bail is used to lock the token in place.  The bail also folds flat, allowing for a flush mount.
  • Corrosion-resistant Contacts – Conductive elastomer contacts on the periphery of the plug token resist corrosion to ensure reliable operation in the harshest environments.


Plug Receptacles

KSD Plug Receptacles are IP65-rated, splash-proof, panel-mount receptacles that mate with all Secure Memory Plug Tokens and Serial Memory Plug Tokens.  Additional features include:

  • Resistance to Environmental Hazards – KSD Plug Receptacles are resistant to sand, dust, salt-fog, rain, magnetic fields, drop shock, and ESD.
  • Positive Token Retention – Turning the plug token's stainless-steel bail 45 degrees in the receptacle locks the plug token into place, preventing it from vibrating loose.


KSDLink Programmers

It is often desired to use a PC to read data from or write data to a memory plug token.  The KSDLink programmers support the Unique ID Secure Memory Plug Tokens and all of the Serial Memory Plug Tokens and connect to a PC via a USB port.  The programmers come with Windows® drivers and a sample application.  The sample application can be used for troubleshooting when integrating a memory plug token into an embedded design, as it provides a known-good way to communicate with the memory device.  For those who wish to develop their own Windows® applications, we offer a development kit with all of the necessary tools, including the programmer.


KSDLink Development Kits

The KSDLink development kits include everything needed to develop a Windows® application that can read data from and write data to a Unique ID Secure Memory plug token or a Serial Memory plug token using a KSDLink programmer.  The development kit includes:

  • 2 – Memory plug token samples
  • 1 – KSDLink Programmer
  • 1 – KSD panel-mount receptacle
  • Plus all cables, drivers, software and documentation
