Comparing Compact Flash Card Types

Delkin Devices Standard Industrial CompactFlash

 

Compact Flash is a popular and rugged storage solution that’s often used by OEMs, particularly in the design of portable electronics. At Delkin, you’ll find the widest available range of Compact Flash card types. We offer three series of CF cards: the C400 Series, C500 Series, and C670 Series. Each is available with single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash technology. Customization options are available to meet the unique needs of different manufacturers.

 

C400 Series

The C400 Series and the C400 Extended Life Cycle (ELC) Series offer robust data storage capacity. Storage sizes of between 128MB and 16GB for these SLC cards are available; the C400 ELC Series is available in capacities of up to 4GB. In terms of performance, the C400 cards offer a sequential read speed of up to 40MB/s and a sequential write speed of up to 30MB/s. Their operating temperature range is -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, with a storage temperature range of -50 to 100 degrees Celsius.

 

C500 Series

Like the C400 Series, Delkin’s C500 Series is also available as the C500 ELC Series. The C500 ELC Series has a storage capacity of up to 4GB, while the capacity range for the standard C500 Series is 2GB to 64GB. These CF cards have a more robust performance, with sequential read speeds of up to 60MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 30MB/s. The operating temperature range is the same as for the C400 Series, but the storage temperature range is between -40 and 125 degrees Celsius.

 

C670 Series

The C670 Series is unique because it’s available in both single-level cell and multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash options. These CF cards are ideal for embedded applications that require both high capacity and impressive speed. Sizes of up to 128GB for the SLC option and up to 256GB for the MLC option are available. The C670 Series offers powerful sequential read speeds of up to 150MB/s and write speeds of up to 120MB/s for the SLC version. The MLC option has sequential read speeds of up to 150MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 80MB/s.

 

Delkin is a proud member of the CompactFlash Association. We welcome inquiries from OEMs and developers about tailored solutions for data storage applications. Get in touch today if you have any questions, or if you would like to request an engineering sample.
