Delkin announces 32-bit CardBus adapter for CF cards

Delkin Devices Inc. has introduced a PCMCIA adapter, CardBus 32-bit PCMCIA that is four to six times faster than all current conventional 16-bit adapters. The CardBus 32 adapter allows CF memory cards to work in the PC Card slot on most Windows based laptops and uses the high speed CardBus PCMCIA standard.

The new Delkin 32-bit CardBus adapter has the same size, shape and design as existing 16-bit adapters in common use now. The adapter inserts completely within its host without any external cabling and operates at a power-saving 3.3 volts, extending battery life in most configurations.

Although labelled eFilm PRO, the adapter can be used with CF cards from other manufacturers. The Delkin CardBus 32 adapter has a theoretical maximum speed of 132MB/s. Speed in real world applications is determined by the speed of the CPU and flash chips within the CF card. High-speed cards like the Delkin eFilm PRO and the IBM Microdrive will operate much faster than other cards not designed to be high speed.

Tests, performed by Delkin´s engineers, on eFilm PRO cards and other high-speed CF cards revealed similar speed increases of four to six times that of standard 16-bit CF adapters. 100 Megabytes of JPEG photos on a Delkin PRO card were transferred to a Dell laptop with both a Delkin 16-bit adapter and the new CardBus 32 adapter. The CardBus adapter took 18 seconds (5.5MB/s) to transfer the images and the standard adapter took more than four times as long, taking one minute, 26 seconds (1.16MB/s) to transfer.

Delkin CardBus 32 adapters also utilize a patented chip, which reduces the burden on the host CPU to 10% or less, further increasing the value of this product. The Delkin CardBus 32 adapter is currently shipping with a retail price of $59.99.
