The SiliconDrive™ CF is developed by the californian manufacturer SiliconSystems.

The used memory and controller technology makes the SiliconDrive products ideal for industrial applications.

More details of SiliconDrive™ technology are here.

The standard product comes with the unique SiSMART Technology. This new patent pending technology monitors the write/erase cycles of the flash cells in the cards and drives. This way it is possible to predict the remaining life span of the products and to plan the future usage.

The optional SiliconDrive Secure product line offers seven unique security features to guard against critical user data falling into the wrong hands or software IP theft.

Standard temperature range from 0°C to +70°C (operating). Optional extended industrial temperature range from –40°C to +85°C (operating).

3.3 and 5 Volt.


What are CompactFlash Cards?

The CompactFlash standard was developed in 1994 by SanDisk.

It uses the same flash technology as the ATA Flash PC Cards.

With CF Cards, data is transferred using the ATA protocol over 50 pins instead of 68 pins as in the PC Cards.

The dimensions of CompactFlash Cards Type I offered by us are 36.4 x 42.8 x 3.3 mm.

Microdrive mini hard disks and some high-capacity flash cards have a CF Card Type II form factor with a greater thickness (overall height of 5.0 instead of 3.3 mm).

CompactFlash Cards are now used in a wide range of devices.

In industry they are used e.g. in mobile measuring equipment, industrial PCs, single board computers, as on board memory expansion or in PLCs.

In the commercial sector they are used in Pocket PCs, PDAs, MP3 players, digital dictating machines and in a large number of digital cameras.

A PC Card adapter allows CompactFlash Cards to be used in any PC Card Type II slot, such as that found in nearly all notebook PCs and all altec PC Card drives.
