Facts and Specs on CF, SLC

Delkin Devices Standard Industrial CompactFlash

 

For industrial embedded applications, CompactFlash has been a go-to solution since it hit the market in 1994. Far from being dated technology, CompactFlash—or CF—remains an integral part of the embedded space. Built with SLC flash, industrial CF cards provide the ruggedness and stability needed to operate in harsh conditions and maintain data storage in the face of power outages and firmware corruption. Get the facts about CF SLC here.

 

Why has CompactFlash remained so popular?
The key to CF’s long-term popularity is its constant evolution. Today’s CF cards maintain the same robustness of their predecessors, but combine it with modern solutions. Industrial CF cards with SLC flash offer:

 

  • High-level performance.
  • SMART support to allow users to monitor their system health.
  • Controlled BOM.
  • Power loss detection.
  • ELC options.
  • Customization, including custom labels, custom settings, and additional mechanical ruggedization.

 

As with all CF products, CF SLC memory cards are easily integrated into a variety of applications across a range of industries.
