This paper ties to Fuon Theory, where functional icons are suggested to phrase standardized functional units. Having functional unit parameters at hand, products that can be described by these parameters can be put into one family. This further helps to compare the environmental performances of products that fall into the same family. In this paper, a fuon for digital storage devices is developed and tested. The fuon can be used to phrase the functional units of a variety of products such as magnetic hard-discs, USB flash drives, SD cards or SSD drives. The functional unit parameters are derives for the fuon and its applicability is tested through different statistic tests.
