Spotlight on CF Industrial Cards

Industrial CompactFlash

 

CompactFlash, or CF, cards are one of the most popular and well known choices for embedded memory. They were first introduced to the market in 1994. Thanks to several updates to stay current with modern trends, they are still embraced by users who appreciate their far-reaching compatibility and ease of integration. Industrial CF cards are built with industrial capabilities. As a result, they can tolerate extreme temperatures and other demanding operating conditions. Here is a closer look at CF cards and what makes industrial CF cards different from other versions.

 

CF Cards 101

As their name suggests, CompactFlash cards are designed with flash memory. They feature NAND flash, which is a form of non-volatile flash memory. This means that the memory does not require power in order to store data. This is a major advantage, particularly for industrial applications.

 

CF cards also feature a solid state design, which many industrial designers prefer over hard disk drives, or HDDs. Solid state memory is significantly more reliable than hard disk memory because it doesn’t have any moving parts. This also means that it is better able to tolerate shock and vibration without any loss of function.

 

CF Industrial Cards

CF cards are available in industrial, commercial, and consumer grades. Industrial CF cards are typically designed with SLC flash memory. SLC stands for single-level cell and refers to flash memory in which only a single bit of data is stored per cell. Limiting data storage to one bit of data per cell minimizes the potential of data loss during program cycles. It also ensures that the flash memory is as fast as possible. This is extremely important for industrial users, who need fast, secure data storage.

 

Another important feature of industrial memory is that it is able to tolerate extreme operating conditions. Industrial CF cards work in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees C to 85 degrees C. They also have an increased ability to withstand high levels of shock and vibration, which may be common in industrial operating environments. These features are essential for CF industrial cards, as industrial devices are frequently used in factories, transit, medical services, and other places where exacting conditions are the norm.
