18 June 2010
Following the 3rd-generation Industrial CF card as are highly acclaimed by international clients and widely used in embedded systems, Apacer —the global leading memory manufacturer— today launches the 4th-generation CFA 4.1-compliant Industrial CF card. It supports UDMA-6 in high-speed mode to boost the file transfer performance of SSD (Solid State Drive). With the read speed up to 50MB per second, storage capacity of 16GB, and high resistance to extreme temperatures (-40°C to 85°C), the 4th-generation Industrial CF card will serve as the best storage solution for industry, military, communication, surveillance, medical healthcare applications, perfectly satisfying the stringent storage demands from industrial customers.
Apacer adopts standard a 50-pin connector for the CFC4 memory card and SLC chip featuring industry-level stability. Available in storage capacities ranging from 256MB to 16GB for customers to choose, the CFC4 supports different transfer standards such as PIO, Multi-Word DMA, and Ultra DMA. In addition, the CFC4 transfer mode supports UDMA-6 specification and delivers up to 50MB per second of sequential read speed according to an actual test report. Data transfer becomes more efficient.
To enhance data accuracy, the CFC4 substantially bolsters product reliability by supporting 15 bit ECC function that can effectively decrease data errors caused by frequent read operations while mitigating the risk of data loss because of a sudden blackout during data writing. The Wear-leveling technology enables the storage blocks of NAND Flash to be used equally to prolong life expectancy by avoiding malfunction of a specific storage block caused by over accessing. Also, with the built-in S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology), users can monitor the health status of the CF card and back up data in advance.
Apacer demonstrates its commitment to highest quality product again by launching the new 4th-generation CF card that passes the stern reliability test for temperature, humidity, vibration, and shock. It has also gone through ORT (on-going reliability testing) following the volume production to ensure product reliability. Currently this new CFC 4 Industrial memory card has entered mass production.
