  • Linpo China

    I believe that the following products are manufactured by Linpo China, but well, I'm not that sure... Some products are obviously the same with different brand names (Bioflash / Biodisk...), but sometimes, the specifications are not correct.

    BDS-2A: the Veridicom version

    This is a version using the Veridicom sensor (the brand name is visible on the photo).
    Announced as having a 224x288 sensor, which is not the size of the Veridicom sensor, but is the size of the (discontinued) Infineon sensor (this is the only existing sensor with this size).
    Note that the Plexuscom photo is exactly the same as the wshield photo, extracted and reworked.

  • Flash Disk BDS 2A.
  • PlexusCom / Win-first BD002-A
  • Pilotech Systems Biodisk BD002A 224x288 500dpi
  • w-shield BDS-1A 224x288 500dpi

    BDS-1A: Biodisk / Bioflash
  • (2004) Flash Disk BDS-1A using the L500 sensor from LighTuning.
  • Under the generic brand (but not always) BioDisk or BioFlash, this product exists under several avatars.
    Sensor from LighTuning, but very often, announced as having a 224 x 288 pixels sensor, which is the announced size of the previous version with the Veridicom sensor, but size is incorrect and is exactly the size of the Infineon sensor, which has been discontinued...
