PQI, a global leader in wireless storage solutions, announces the world exclusive "COB 3.0 - Chip On Board Technology" related patents and products. The "compact and lightweight" COB 3.0 technology can be featured in micro-sized USB 3.0 storage devices to meet the desire among Ultrabook users for miniaturization. This revolutionary technology-a complete game changer for the storage industry-also brings with it the latest USB 3.0 thumb drives from PQI. The PQI i-mini and PQI Tiffy feature 10x transfer speed over USB 2.0 and higher capacities in a beautiful micro-sized design for the consumers.
Alan Chang, CEO of Global Operations, mentioned, "Rising demand for thinner computers has driven the market for the MacBook Air and Ultrabook computers; similarly, users have also demanded smaller and thinner storage solutions. However, the bulky USB 3.0 thumb drives on the market today are limited by the old TSOP technology. For this, PQI has developed and patented the world exclusive "COB 3.0 Technology". The COB packaging process for USB 2.0 is limited to 4 pads. COB 3.0 retains USB 2.0 backward compatibility by keeping the 4 pin configuration from USB 2.0, while adding another 5 pins at the rear to match the USB 3.0 specifications. Storage solutions built on COB 3.0 not only do not suffer from overheating during data access, but also solves the problem of the high frequency noise that can sometimes result in a failure to read data. The "thin and lightweight" industry-leading USB 3.0 storage devices are made possible through COB 3.0."
