Southern Electronics 2012

Nexus GB will be showing its new UFX memory system, for single board computers (SBCs). This is a rugged, secure alternative to USBs that can interface with micro-processor computers.

Nexus GB is the exclusive distributor of Datakey Electronics in the UK & Ireland.

Historically, the company’s’ memory tokens couldn’t be used with SBCs, because the microprocessor based systems lacked the required interfaces.

The new UFX token is suited to applications ranging from ruggedised and fan-less computers to embedded computers such as the PC/104 form factor.

The UFX token, which is part of the company’s RUGGEDrive range, connects with an SBC by using specially designed electrical modules, compatible with USB ports.

These come in the form of a series of receptacles, suited for different SBCs. In order to interface with the UFX drive, the receptacle has a header connector at one end and a USB connecter at the other.

The memory token is an ideal solution for applications that can only accept USB flash drives and use higher-level operating systems such as Linux or Windows XP.

The token also caters for application software and updates, which are often much larger than micro-controller firmware can handle.
