Secure Memory


Secure Memory SlimLine™ Tokens

For additional security, Datakey offers the Secure Memory line of tokens, featuring the Unique ID series and the CryptoMemory series. Secure Memory tokens are available with I2C or Atmel 2-wire interfaces and capacities from 1 Kb to 256 Kb.  The tokens feature:

  • Ultra-rugged Construction – SlimLine™ tokens are solid over-molded using a durable composite, making them impervious to liquids and virtually crush-proof.
  • Redundant Contacts – With contacts on both sides of the memory token it is impossible to insert it “upside-down.”
  • Branding Options – The tokens are available in six standard colors and come in standard and extended lengths.  The extended length token can be OEM-branded with a molded-in logo.


SlimLine™ Receptacles

Datakey offers both board- and panel-mount receptacles.  The board-mount models are available in both surface-mount and through-hole versions.  Additional features include:

  • IP65 and IP67 Ratings – Several receptacles are available in IP65- and IP67-rated versions.  Versions that reduce radiated emissions are also available.
  • High Cycle-life Contacts – All SlimLine™ receptacles are rated for a minimum of 50,000 insertion cycles.  That’s 33 time more than most USB receptacles.
  • Cabling Options – Choose a panel mount receptacle with a standard 10-pin header (for use with a ribbon cable) or choose a locking connector for high-vibration applications.


SlimLink Programmers

It is often desired to use a PC to read data from or write data to a memory token.  The SlimLink programmers support the Unique ID Secure Memory token and all of the Serial Memory tokens and connect to a PC via a USB or RS-232 port.  The programmers come with Windows® drivers and a sample application.  The sample application can be used for troubleshooting when integrating a memory 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.  There is not currently a programmer available for the CryptoMemory® tokens.


SlimLink Development Kits

The SlimLink development kits include everything needed to develop a Windows® application that can read data from and write data to a Unique ID Secure Memory token or a Serial Memory token using a SlimLink programmer.  There is not currently a development kit available for the CryptoMemory® tokens.  The development kit includes:

  • 2 – Memory token samples
  • 1 – SlimLink Programmer
  • 1 – SR4210PCB board-mount receptacle
  • 1 – SR4210 panel-mount receptacle
  • Plus all cables, drivers, software and documentation
