Spotlight on Compact Flash Memory Cards

Industrial CompactFlash

 

Are you looking for a tried and true embedded storage option that is capable of storing high-resolution photos and videos as well as critical data securely and reliably? If so, Compact Flash memory cards could be the right fit for you. Compact Flash memory cards, or CF cards, revolutionized the embedded memory market when they were initially introduced, and they have been used in countless commercial and industrial applications since. Users value CF cards for their reliability, high capacities, easy integrations, and robust speeds. Compact Flash memory cards are often used as boot drives with an OS image load or for logging critical data.

 

Compact Flash Memory Card Applications

You will find CF cards used in many devices that store high-definition photo and video files. In fact, many people are familiar with CF cards because they have used them in their personal digital cameras. However, just because CF cards are available for consumer use doesn’t mean that they don’t provide robust storage. CF cards are also used in professional photo and video equipment, as well as in a wide variety of industrial applications. Though you will often find CF cards used in applications with photos, videos, and graphics, the cards can also be used for logging different kinds of data reliably.

 

SLC and MLC Flash Memory

CF cards are available with both SLC and MLC flash in a number of different capacities. Although SLC flash is typically used in industrial applications, MLC CF cards are also popular with industrial users. Because CF cards are so often used for HD visuals, which involve large data files, users need large storage capacities. With CF cards, MLC flash offers the advantage of increased capacity with some of the benefits of SLC flash, such as a resistance to high levels of shock and vibration. This allows users to combine their capacity needs with their needs for a memory card that can function in a rugged operating environment.

 

Compatibility Issues

All CF cards are designed according to standards set by the CompactFlash Association. As such, any CF memory card you get will have the same specifications, allowing it to be easily integrated into your application without concerns about compatibility. Further, when you choose a CF card from Delkin, your card will have a locked BOM. This means that no components that could affect compatibility with your application will be changed without advanced notice and a new product number.
