CompactFlash Interfaces Gets a Boost

Flash MemoryHawksM06 November 2010

To boost the speed of traditional CompactFlash memory cards, the major manufacturer Transcend has begun selling CFast flash memory cards with SATA (Serial ATA) technology. The CFast memory cards offer 375 MB/second transfer speeds, compared to 90 MB/second performance speeds of CompactFlash cards. These new transfer speeds will allow the new memory cards to compete with also new and fast SDXC SD card format.

The CFast memory cards will be issued in 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB format sizes, but will not be compatible with current CompactFlash memory cards. While no prices have been quoted, the CFast cards will not be sold to a consumer market at this point.

While analysts don’t predict a swift sweep of the CFast cards, their speed will play a large role in marketing penetration; the use of a serialized interface, compared to the UDMA technology currently employed, seems to be the way the market is shifting.
