Looking for that latest, greatest, fastest USB Flash Drive? Super Talent announced today that the new PICO series USB Flash drives have moved into mass production. The new PICO series USB drives are manufactured using chip-on-board (COB) technology, which means the unpackaged Flash die is bonded directly to the printed circuit board (PCB). This new technology enables Super Talent to fit up to 4GB of Flash storage in smaller and slimmer case. PICO-A drives measure 38.7mm x 12.4mm x 3.9mm, and weigh less than 5 grams. "We designed PICO USB drives to be small, stylish and smart looking", commented Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James. "PICO drives bring new levels of smallness and elegance to USB storage, making these drives more like a fashion accessory than a computer peripheral", added Mr. James. The new Flash Drives will be shipping in volume by late November with average prices ranging from $25 for a 2GB, and $45 for the 4GB.
