Swissbit Product Features



Description:

CFast™ cards combine two existing industry standards into a single product: the CompactFlash™ (CF) card form factor and the Serial ATA (SATA) interface commonly used in Hard Disks. CFast™ cards can replace both HDDs and CompactFlash™ cards in applications requiring small form factors, high endurance and the ability to withstand shock, vibration, extreme temperatures (-40°C to +85°C), high altitude and rough environmental conditions. The cards provide rugged storage for embedded and industrial systems where performance, data and system reliability, Power Fail Protection and flexibility are important design considerations.

Swissbit CFast™ Cards operate with a 3.3 Volt low power source and support three SATA power management states: Active, Partial and Slumber. This standard is a perfect choice for both boot devices and as removable media for applications requiring low to medium storage densities with a small footprint. Additionally, the Swissbit CFast™ cards come with full engineering and customization support, S.M.A.R.T. based Life Time Monitoring features, our intelligent Flash Management algorithms and Error Correction, guaranteeing the highest level of reliability even in rough application environments. Swissbit’s SATA III CFast™ card series comprise the high endurance durabit™ F-60 MLC and F-600 SLC family as well as the cost optimized F-50 MLC card. Using state of the art controllers and MLC/SLC Flash technology, the F-60/F-600 achieves data transfer rates up to 525 MB/s in sequential access and 70,000 IOPS in 4KB random access.

In addition, the F-50/F-60/F-600 series feature Swissbit’s proven Power Fail Safety, ATA security feature set, enhanced Secure Erase tools, a Windows or Linux tool & SDK for detailed S.M.A.R.T. based Life Time Monitoring, NCQ, TRIM, advanced Wear Leveling & Bad Block management or in-field firmware update functionality.
