Dutch firm DEONET has unveiled what it calls the 'smallest USB stick in the world.' The new memory stick features the Micro UDP-chip, a memory chip which DEONET claims is half the size of a 'classic' memory chip. This Micro UDP-chip has dimensions of 18.5x14.5x2.9mm, giving DEONET the ability to produce ultra-compact USB sticks.
Rob van Berkom, CEO of DEONET said "For years, DEONET noticed a high demand for user friendly and compact USB sticks. With the development of the Micro UDP-chip, we continue being innovative in the USB market. This new technique enables us to introduce very small USB solutions. The main advantage is that the USB stick is small enough to keep it in a wallet or hang it on a bunch of keys. In addition, the smallest USB-stick from DEONET is so small it barely protrudes of the USB port of the PC and laptop. This makes it possible to leave the USB-stick in the laptop, even if it's stored in a bag."
The new USB stick will be available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities, and will be released at the PSI Düsseldorf business fair next month.
