Datakey Electronics (Savage, MN) has confirmed that its GammaSafe memory tokens survive e-beam sterilization with no data loss.

The memory token contains four kilobits of non-volatile, reprogrammable memory, functions similarly to an EEPROM device, and uses an SPI serial interface for communications.
