To this day, CompactFlash™ (CF) cards are still a very popular Flash based storage solution used in the embedded and industrial markets and the CompactFlash™ Card form factor and connector are well established. Swissbit‘s CF Cards were developed with strong focus on quality, reliability, robustness and longevity. We only select high-quality components and apply design rules fitting the stringent requirements of our customers. Hardware and firmware were tested and qualified by our experienced technical team and features and functionality have been proven in many challenging customer applications.
Swissbit‘s CF Series C-350, C-4×0 and C-5×0 are offered in both, commercial (0°C to 70°C) and industrial (-40°C to 85°C) temperature ranges, providing rugged and reliable memory for a wide range of demanding use cases. They are designed to solve a broad range of concerns from compatibility, booting and Power Fail Safety to long-term supply, controlled BOM and outstanding Flash protocol handling techniques to ensure highest possible data integrity. In contrast to commonly promoted sequential performance values, Swissbit is especially focused on optimized random access speed, one of the key requirements in legacy embedded CompactFlash applications.
The C-350 CF Card ensures optimized backward compatibility to legacy systems with an expected availability of more than 7 years. The series offers low densities from 32 MB to 256 MB using highly reliable SLC Flash with 100’000 program / erase cycles.
Swissbit’s most recent CF Card product families are C-500, and C-56 which are using page based Flash management and thus provide highest write IOPS rate as well as outstanding endurance
