Delkin CFexpress

 

Industrial CFexpress is a high-speed flash storage device that is removable and able to support fast hosts in industrial applications across a variety of markets. It merges two other flash storage formats into a single new standard that is intended for high-res files and high-speed recording, all within a space-constrained form factor. This flash storage card is designed for industrial and enterprise applications in which speed, capacity, and data integrity are paramount. This new kind of flash storage is expected to hit the market in 2019. Here is a closer look at what users can expect.

 

Industrial CFexpress Basic Features

This next-generation flash product combines CFAST 2.0 and XQD 2.0 with PCIe interface and NVM Express protocol. The card is sized to match the XQD format, with which it also shares the same connector. In the initial product launch, the capacities will be 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. In the future, there are plans to create CFexpress with capacities of 1TB. As with all CF products, the specifications for CFexpress are managed by the Compact Flash Association. CFexpress will be available in the TLC flash format.

 

The CFexpress operating system is Windows 10 64-bit. An Intel i7-6700K 4GHz CPO and an Asus Z170 Deluxe motherboard are included.

 

CFexpress Advantages

There are several advantages to CFexpress. One is the fact that makes it possible to use PCIe and NVM Express in a small and removable form factor. In the first version of the design, the performance will be PCIe 3.0×2—two lanes—but in the future, it is likely to scale up to eight lanes. This combination of high performance with a small form factor brings a wide range of possibilities to industrial users.

 

Industrial CFexpress also comes with the features that industrial users expect and rely on, like a controlled BOM and extended life cycle management. These features mean that no one who adopts CFexpress has to worry about changes to core components of the storage device, including the firmware and controller, unless a new product number is issued and advanced notice is given.
