Renowned memory manufacturer TwinMos is showcasing unfamiliar products as well as its latest range of memory products at this year's show.

The TwinMos Netkey B series access point (the B-AP-21) represents diversification from the memory solutions that have made the name of TwinMos. The wireless access point, which works using the 802.11b standard, is no bigger than a thumbdrive and fits into a USB port.

It supports a maximum data transfer rate of 11Mbps and is also integrated with an auto-sensing fast Ethernet switch. For those concerned with security the device boasts 64 and 128 bit Wired Encryption Protocol (WEP).

Zajin Hamza, digital media product manager for TwinMos, says "We owe our innovation to our strong R&D spend. We aim to move into markets one year before they go mainstream. For example, this year thumbdrives are big news, but we debuted models last year.

"This year we are showcasing wireless LAN USB devices and we expect these to be very successful next year, as the difficulties with reliability and incompatibility are resolved. We try to enter a market one year before the boom."

TwinMos will also showcase a wide range of memory products from a 512MB capacity MMC card that weighs just one and a half grams, to dual channel DDR 400 memory.

Zajin adds, "The memory market is very volatile and we hold our ability to adapt our prices quickly as one of our strengths. In the Dubai office, we receive two price lists every day from our Taiwan office."

The dual DDR 400 memory provides a transfer rate of up to 3200MB/s and 6.4GB/s of memory bandwidth. TwinMos will also showcase TwiSTER, which stands for TwinMos Speed Memory Terrific. TwiSTER is designed with over-clocking power users in mind such as gaming enthusiasts.

It promises high performance with steady retrieval of data. The DDR module under the TwiSTER line is produced with WLCSP technology, enabling steady data transmission and effective thermal reduction. A1-14
