Product Description

Delkin’s UDMA 6 CompactFlash cards utilize the latest industrial controller technology to provide the most extensive power interruption and read disturb management available, thereby delivering the ultimate protection for critical data. The UDMA 6 cards are built with high endurance Single Level Cell (SLC) flash, which is ideal for storing mission critical data or write-intensive applications that will be exposed to extreme temperatures. Additionally, the UDMA 6 CF cards support SMART for monitoring P/E cycles, bad blocks and remaining usage of the card, in order to pre-emptively replace a card prior to end of life.

Delkin controls bills of materials down to the flash, controller and firmware version, so once a part number is qualified, the same configuration will be delivered until its EOL date. And recognizing the value of strong life cycle management, Delkin provides advance notification when a part must eventually be discontinued, offering last time buy opportunities and replacement parts for qualification.

The UDMA 6 CF cards can be customized to meet the unique needs of your application – including custom labels, content & image loading, serialization, conformal coating and custom shock & vibration testing or mechanical adaptations to mitigate severe environmental conditions. Contact Delkin to find out how we can customize cards to meet your requirements.
