Super Talent PICO USB Drives Enter Mass Production
Slim, Stylish & Smart Mobile Storage
San Jose, California – November 6, 2007 -- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced that the company’s new PICO series USB Flash drives have moved into mass production.
Super Talent’s new PICO series USB drives are manufactured using chip-on-board (COB) technology, meaning the unpackaged Flash die is bonded directly to the printed circuit board (PCB). COB technology enables Super Talent to fit up to 4GB of Flash storage in an incredibly small and slim case. PICO-A drives measure merely 38.7mm x 12.4mm x 3.9mm, and weigh less than 5 grams.
The new PICO series is notable not only for its ultra-small size, but also for its fascinating style. The first two products in the PICO series both have polished chrome steel exteriors. PICO-A, shipping in volume now, has a swivel chrome lid. PICO-B is a retractable slide-open drive that will be shipping in volume by late November.

“We designed PICO USB drives to be small, stylish and smart looking”, commented Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James. “PICO drives bring new levels of smallness and elegance to USB storage, making these drives more like a fashion accessory than a computer peripheral”, added Mr. James.
All Super Talent USB drives are backed with a lifetime warranty. Approximate street prices on the 2GB and 4GB PICO-A drives is $25 and $45 respectively.
