Industrial CF Cards Used in Broadcast Equipment and Drive Recorders

 

Industrial CF cards provide powerful storage in a familiar and highly compatible format. CF cards have long been a popular storage tool in digital cameras for consumer users, and the capacity and ease of use they provide have made them popular in industrial applications as well. For example, you will find these storage cards being used in a variety of applications, from infotainment and gaming to embedded computing. They are particularly popular in broadcast equipment and drive recorders. Here is a look at how industrial CF cards are being used in broadcast equipment and drive recorders.

 

CF Card Basics

 CF stands for CompactFlash. It was first introduced to the market in 1994, making it one of the first flash memory cards available. Since then, it has been updated multiple times in order to keep up with technological advances. That includes transitioning from NOR flash memory to NAND flash technology. NAND quickly became the go-to option for flash technology after flash storage devices started becoming more common, since it can hold larger amounts of data than NOR flash.

 

The flash on CF cards is non-volatile storage, which means that it does not need power in order for data to be saved. If the power is turned off, the stored information remains safe, which provides the superior level of data security required for industrial applications.

 

Broadcast Equipment and Drive Recorders

 There are a few reasons why CF cards are popular for broadcast equipment and drive recorders and are often preferred for these technologies over other flash memory options. One is the inherent strength of CF cards. The shock rating of CF cards is higher than other kinds of memory—and industrial grade CF cards are even more robust. For equipment like broadcast gear and recorders that can easily be jostled or dropped, having a CF card for data storage means that the risk of damage that could interfere with recorded data is much lower.
