Swissbit Product Features



Description:

To this day, CompactFlash™ (CF) cards are still the most 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-3×0 and C-4×0 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 concerns 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.

Swissbit’s most recent CF Card product family is the C-300 Longevity series which offers maximum long term availability (at least until 2021). In addition, the C-300 Longevity CF Card ensures optimized backward compatibility to legacy systems, high random access speed and a wide range of capacities from 32 MB to 8 GB using highly reliable SLC Flash with 100,000 program / erase cycles.
