APRO, a leading brand in NAND type flash memory storages mainly for industrial and military applications, launched HERMIT-F Series CF Card (CompactFlash Card), which is designed based Hyperstone F9 CF/PATA controller.
APRO HERMIT-F Series CF Card is fully compliant with CompactFlash™ 4.1 & 5.0 and compatible with 6.1 specifications and PC-Card 8.0 (PC-Card ATA), and it is available for SLC, MLC, and aSLC CF Cards. It is the most up-to-date CompactFlash Card solutions for the industrial and military applications.
The APRO HERMIT-F Series CF Card is complemented by Herperstones' hyMap firmware technology, which is highly acclaimed for enhanced endurance and highest random read and especially write performance.
In addition, HERMIT-F Series CF Card pioneered the technology of 4K Mapping algorithm, and it effectively reduces the accumulation of the Write Amplification Factor (WAF). Through the 4K Mapping algorithm and hyMap firmware technology, the HERMIT-F Series CF Cards effectively extend the lifespan and reliable operation. The performance of the sequential reading/writing is up to 112.3MB/62.7MB per second; the 4K data random reading/writing is up to 8.6MB/5.3MB per second. The outstanding high-speed random read and write performance enables the cards to be used in nearly all types of embedded applications.
The HERMIT-F Series CF Card supports S.M.A.R.T. health monitoring and lifetime estimation tools so the user may inspect the health status of the CF Card whenever it is necessary. It also features a rigorous power fail-safe design and provides reliable operation without the need of hardware based power fail protection like tantalum capacitors.
HERMIT-F Series CFC (CompactFlash Card) product line is available for operating temperature 0°C ~ +70°C and wide temperature -40°C ~ +85°C
Product capacities are available for:
SLC CF Card: 128MB ~ 64GB
aSLC CF Card: 4GB ~ 128GB
MLC CF Card: 8GB ~ 256GB
About CompactFlash Card (CF Card)
Since 1986 till now, it has been more than three decades that NAND flash technology applied for various storages with different form-factors and interfaces. Owing to the features of the electronic but non-volatile solid-state memory, CompactFlash card should be the most widely used in the Embedded Systems and those pan-industrial applications with limited enclosure space. If we compare it with other small form factor memory cards, CompactFlash Card is also one of the most long-term existing storages. Whether it is an embedded application as a boot system disk or an external removable storage device, CompactFlash Card always plays such a significant role in various storage solutions, especially industrial applications. APRO releases the latest CF card to the market and intends to deliver larger Card capacity, more reliable and stable products for those CF / ATA interface users.
