Atmel’s FingerChip Featured in FingerGear’s Computer-On-a-Stick Biometric Edition

San Jose, CA and Mountain View, CA - Atmel® Corporation and FingerGearä announced today the release of its groundbreaking Bio Computer-On-a-Stick™ USB Flash Drive now with fingerprint security. The Computer-On-a-Stick is the world's first bootable USB flash drive. The OS and all Desktop Software applications come preinstalled and occupy as little as 200Mb of flash memory. The device also features Atmel's FingerChip® sensor for convenient and accurate one-swipe secure data access, and a large font LCD display for the ultimate user-friendly experience.

The FingerGear Computer-On-a-Stick also includes an Office Productivity Suite, along with many of the most commonly used home and office applications. The Office Suite, developed by, is compatible with Microsoft Office™ applications, including Word™, Excel®, PowerPoint®, and Outlook®. The Computer-On-a-Stick also bundles the increasingly popular Mozilla FireFox® web browser, now at a 25% market share*, as well as a PDF Creator, a zip compression utility, and an Instant Messenger which communicates with Yahoo® IM, MSN® Messenger, AIM, and Napster®, among others.

With sales projections for USB Flash Drives as high as 100 Million units or greater for 2005, and average storage capacities exceeding 256MB**, the trend towards USB storage devices with value-added capabilities has only just begun. Moreover, users are increasingly demanding greater security as potential network hackers become more and more sophisticated. The FingerGear Bio Computer-On-a-Stick features both public and private partitions. The public partition is accessible on any Windows®, Linux®, or Macintosh® PC with a standard USB port, thus making it easy to share non-sensitive files. The encrypted private directory can only be accessed when booting from the device, by using a login password or fingerprint authentication. Data is protected with the help of Atmel's FingerChip due to the following combination; small size, low cost, high accuracy, low power consumption and portability for proven system security benefits.

The Bio Computer-On-a-Stick includes a USB 2.0 extension cable, a neck lanyard, and a mini boot CD. The device is bootable from any PC using an x86 processor, which can be found on nearly every Windows and Linux desktop shipped over the past 5 years. Recent PCs allow the user to configure their system to boot directly from a USB Flash Drive without the need for a CD. The Computer-On- a Stick Standard and Biometric Editions are currently in stock and shipping now. The Computer-On-a Stick pricing starts at only $99, and the Biometric Edition starts at $149.

“The USB standard has experienced one of the fastest adoption rates in the history of consumer electronics,” said Bionopoly C.E.O. Jon Louis, “The next wave of USB devices, led by FingerGear, now allows you to carry not only your files, but also your entire Desktop Software Environment as well, essentially replacing your hard drive. The Computer-On-a-Stick, and now the Biometric edition, offer the ultimate combination of desktop portability and advanced security.”
