Industrial CFast Product Description

For embedded platforms which have used Compact Flash as a boot drive or other storage medium, and now face a migration from PATA to SATA due to a processor change, Delkin F300 Series Industrial CFast is a logical choice for new designs.  Industrial CFast has all of the mechanical advantages of CF – small, rugged, cased, easily customizable – with the added benefits of the SATA interface.  CFast is governed by the CompactFlash Association (, with mechanical dimensions virtually identical to CF, as the only differences are thickness (3.6mm for CFast vs. 3.3mm for CF) and the 24-pin SATA connector in place of the 50-pin CF connector. Delkin offers industrial temperature CFast capacities in SLC to provide the best solution for a given application, whether write intensive requiring high endurance or cost sensitive.

Delkin controls bills of materials down to the flash, controller and firmware version, so once a part number is qualified, the same configuration will be delivered until its EOL date.  And recognizing the value of strong life cycle management, Delkin provides advance notification when a part must eventually be discontinued, offering last time buy opportunities and replacement parts for qualification.

Delkin also acknowledges that an off-the-shelf part may not always be the best fit, and provides many customization options – ranging from custom labels, serialization, content and image loading, conformal coating, custom testing, mechanical ruggedization, even a complete custom design. Contact us to ask how we can customize a drive for your application.

In addition to F300 Series CFast, other SATA form factors Delkin offers include the S370 Series 2.5” SATA SSD and the A300 Series mSATA (MO-300B).
