Los Angeles – Transcend
introduced a line of CF cards that meet the CompactFlash Association’s CFast
Transcend’s CFast cards
measure 42.8mm by 36.4mm by 3.3mm — the same physical dimensions as traditional
CF cards — but are designed to act as solid-state drives.
The cards “integrate the
rapid, more robust SATA interface into the existing CF card form factor,
offering improved performance and convenience for a variety of industrial
applications,” the company said.
Transfer rates reach up
to 108MBps, Transcend said, and are meant for industrial-PC users and those
with SATA 3Gbps-compatible devices.
The cards are offered in
2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities. Pricing wasn’t given.
