CompactFlash is a high performance, removable solid-state memory format. Its compatibility with the IDE and PATA interfaces means that it remains one of the most widely used solid state embedded memory form factors. Being able to attach a CompactFlash card in place of a HDD prolonged the life of many embedded systems enabling them to work in harsher environments.

Its relative low cost means that it is also widely used as a low-cost replacement for hard disk drives and host systems with requirements for low power and small scalable storage solutions. Providing reliable operation in extreme conditions allied to long product lifecycle CompactFlash provides an incredibly robust solution.

As with other flash based devices, CompactFlash is available in various packages and with differing specifications. We can help you find your way through the complex data.
