The devices comply with USB 2.0 High-Speed and USB 1.0 FullSpeed specifications and are available in both SLC and MLC solutions. The SLC G4SB and G5 USB Flash Drivers are available in capacity from 128MB to 8GB while MLC based flash drives are delivered from 1GB to 16GB. USB drives of both generations support standard grade operating temperature (0C ~ +70C) and wide temperature grade (-40C~+85C) to meet customersˇ¦ different requirements. APROˇ¦s G4SB and G5 can be applied as booting disks; the USB Flash Drives also support auto-run function, software partition management for disk lock and password protection.
