At the heart of Biolog Device´s highly secure fingerprint USB is Hyperstone´s U9 flash memory controller. Biolog Device has chosen Hyperstone´s controller and API to support theBFU100A´s design due to their renowned reliability and flexibility in enabling customer firmware extensions.

Konstanz, Germany & Gyeonggi-do, Korea - The high performance features of the U9 Flash Memory Controller coupled with Hyperstone´s API (Application Programming Interface) have allowed Biolog Device´s design to become a truly unique USB stick. It can be used across a range of embedded storage applications where security precautions are a must.

Matthias Steck, Deputy General Manager of Hyperstone AP underlines the role of the controller within the design: By utilizing Hyperstone´s API software kit alongside our USB 3.1 controller, Biolog Device has developed a high quality solution. This is a design where secure data storage, encryption and broad flash support is key and we are proud to have played such a pivotal role in its design. The BFU100A has a fingerprint sensor integrated into the front panel of the USB which is controlled through software commands sent over a high speed SPI interface. "Highly secure personal settings, like mobile payments, accessing cloud services and unlocking phones can be achieved through fingerprint biometrics, and in our rapidly digitalized world, devices like the BFU100A are profoundly beneficial" states Dong Yun Kim, CTO of Biolog Device.
