Maximum reliability is a prerequisite for storage solutions in safety-critical applications. Security against manipulation in industrial systems is essential. The CmCard/CFast is the world's first CFast card with high data transfer rate (SATA II) and embedded secure smart card chip for cryptographic functions, which serves both integrity and know-how protection purposes, as well as flexible licensing. It is available with a memory capacity in the spectrum of 2-16GB. Other key features include: extended environment temperature ranging from -25°C to +85°C, sophisticated NAND flash management mechanisms, SMART protocol, Power-Fail Protection, high quality Single-Level Cell memory (SLC), long-term availability, fix Bill Of Materials (BOM) and a Product Change Notification process (PCN). The requirements of Industry 4.0, such as the standard OPC-UA, are optimally supported by CodeMeter.
Additionally vendors can use the Cm-Stick/IV (where IV stands for «Internal vertical») with 2x5 pins and 2.54 mm pitch that is space-saving when connected upright directly to the USB port on the motherboard of an IPC or embedded system. Like all other CodeMeter dongles, the Cm-Stick/IV contains a smart card chip for integrity and know-how protection as well as for flexible licensing of software and data. The Cm-Stick/IV broadens the lineup of the Cm-Stick/I, in the standard form factor of a USB flash drive module with a 2.54 mm pitch socket, and the more compact Cm-Stick/CI with a 2.0mm pitch one. These internal USB interfaced CmSticks are available with an extended environment temperature range comprised between -25ºC and +85ºC, increased ESD immunity and optional conformal coating for condensing humidity. Customized versions can be produced at short notice.
