Super Talent Launches CFast Storage Cards
Super Talent, a manufacturer of flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, released new CFast storage cards.
Super Talent CFast storage cards are an evolution of traditional CompactFlash cards that have been in the industry for over 14 years. CFast has a bandwidth of 375MB/s -- 4 times more than offered by the fastest high-speed 600x (90MB/s) CompactFlash cards -- at the same original CF form factor. The new CFast storage card breaks the speed bottleneck between the SSD and the device by using a SATA interface. Super Talent has clocked these CFast cards at up to 200MB/sec read speeds.
Measuring 36.4 x 42.8 x 3.3 mm (Type I) and 36.4 x 42.8 x 5.0 mm (Type II) -- the same physical dimensions as those of CompactFlash cards, a CFast card has a single-chip controller and a flash memory module. The SATA interface consists of a 7-pin signal connector and a 17-pin power and control connector. The card operates at 3.3V.
Super Talent is offering five different CFast storage cards: 8GB and 16GB based on SLC (Single-Level Cell) flash, and 8GB, 16GB, 32GB based on MLC (Multi-Level Cell) flash.
