Swissbit Launches CFast Memory Card F-800 for Industrial High-End Applications
December 22, 2020
The F-800 series is available in various capacities from 2 to 64 GB and is characterized by low power consumption and low heat generation.
Swissbit has launched its latest F-800 product series. Featuring high-quality SLC-NAND flash memory chips and the latest controller firmware, F-800 offers ideal performance, durability, and reliability as memory for embedded systems and industrial applications. This includes high temperature tolerance and protection against data loss in case of power failure.
Per the company, CFast has become a suitable storage solution for embedded systems in industrial automation and motion control, POS/POI terminals, industrial PCs, transportation, and medical technology thanks to the combination of SATA protocol and a CompactFlash form factor of 36.4×42.8×3.6mm.
The F-800 series is available in various capacities from 2 to 64 GB and is characterized by low power consumption and low heat generation. Per the company, sophisticated firmware functions for active and passive data maintenance and the protection against data loss in the event of power failure ensure reliable data retention. Through the provision of detailed lifetime information, long maintenance cycles can be scheduled. F-800 is specified for an operating temperature range from -40 to +85 °C.
According to the company, the combination of a DRAM-less flash memory controller and robust SLC-NAND flash makes Swissbit F-800 reliable. Firmware features provide additional security: Background Media Refresh, end-to-end data path protection, SRAM ECC, Subpage-based Flash Translation Layer (FTL), and optional security features such as AES-128/256 encryption and TCG Opal. The performance of the CFast memory card, especially by low densities, opens up application opportunities: sequential data rates of up to 320 MB/s in read and 168 MB/s in write mode.
For use in less harsh environments, Swissbit F-800 is available in a version that specifies an operating temperature range of 0 to +70 °C. The interface complies with SATA III 6 Gb/s and is backward compatible with SATA II and SATA I.
