Taking a Closer Look at CFexpress Cards

Delkin CFexpress

 

Are you looking for a high-speed, removable storage solution with enough capacity for even high-resolution videos in a small form factor? If so, than CFexpress cards could be right for you. CFexpress is a next generation CF—or CompactFlash—card that is designed to keep up with the speed and size of today’s hosts. With high-speed data transfers, low latency, and industrial grade options, CFexpress is perfect for rugged operating conditions. Here is what you need to know.

 

CFexpress Basics

CFexpress is a combination of two different operating standards: XQD 2.0 and CFAST 2.0. This design allows the card to offer compatibility with both the NVM Express Protocol and the PCIe interface. In terms of size, it matches the XQD format, which makes it ideal for small form factor devices. Though CFexpress was initially introduced with PCIe 3.0×2—meaning with two lanes—there are plans to expand to eight lanes in the future.

 

At Delkin, we offer a variety of CFexpress capacities, including 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. In the future, you can expect capacities of up to 1TB to become available in order to keep up with the increased demands of host devices.

 

As with all CompactFlash products, CFexpress cards are designed according to the specifications set by the CompactFlash Association, or CFA. This allows engineers and OEMs to know exactly what they are getting with any CFexpress card.

 

Industrial CFexpress Card Options

Even with high speeds and capacities, CFexpress cards are not helpful to industrial designers and engineers unless they meet the appropriate guidelines for industrial applications. At Delkin, we offer industrial grade CFexpress cards that provide everything you expect from industrial grade flash memory, including a locked BOM, customization options, and rugged capabilities.

 

The industrial CFexpress card from Delkin is housed in a metal case to increase the reliability of the device. It operates on a Windows 10 64-bit operating system and is available with a PCIe x4 to CFexpress adapter.
