A number of technical challenges had to be overcome in order to design, develop and manufacture a small, battery operated, wireless device for secure communication over very short distances, i.e.
low operating voltage & power consumption
USB support on a small device (limited number of processors with full speed USB)
MSD on-the-fly content generation
compatibility with PC Mass Storage Device (MSD) specifications
strong encryption algorithm used with small embedded processor
software development with customer
components selected for low price, high volume and quick delivery
standard SMD design using relaxed component size and pitch to simplify production
test concept developed for high volume production
single design for fast prototype production and small production volumes which could also be used for large volumes to avoid the need for a re-design
