Highly customisable memory tokens and keys

25 November 2019 DSP, Micros & Memory

Despite having well over 100 standard products, in recognition of the fact that every application is unique, Datakey offers extensive options for customisation of its memory key and token products. All of its portable memory products come in a default colour (black for most products), while its keys and SlimLine tokens are offered in six standard colours: black, red, yellow, green, blue and grey. However, the company can colour-match its plastic to a Pantone colour, federal standard colour or physical sample.

Most of the standard products come with a Datakey logo moulded into the memory key/token, but clients’ company logos can be accommodated. Customers can even opt to modify the shape of the key or token, giving it a completely customised look.

One of the key values Datakey products deliver is long-term availability. Its standard products utilise industry-standard non-volatile memory ICs that have a track record of excellent long-term availability, but the company realises that there are a host of new memory technologies on the market today, and if one of these meets your needs better than one of the standard products, it will look at a custom solution using the memory device of your choice.


Sometimes customers don’t want a different memory IC in one of the rugged, portable form factors, but rather a microcontroller or ASIC – this too can be accommodated.

Datakey’s panel-mount SlimLine receptacles come with a standard 0,100” pitch 10-pin header – a general purpose connector that allows OEMs to use standard 10-conductor ribbon cables. Alternative connectors are offered as well, or a custom PCB can be produced for the back of the receptacle for a modest NRE fee.

Despite all of the above customisation options, for those who have an application that demands something special, Datakey is willing to engage with customers to satisfy their needs.
