Reliable with comprehensive monitoring methods and guaranteed long-term availability, these cards are suitable for use in industry, automation, medicine and transportation as well as communication and networks.
The high level of reliability is achieved through well designed wear leveling, read disturb management and a BCH-ECC (Bose-Chaudhuri-Hocquenghem-Codes) unit, which can correct up to 24 bits per 1024 bytes using a tried-and-tested procedure. Only SLC (Single Level Cell) flash storage cells are used, which have been tested to ensure high levels of reliability, and specially developed and optimised algorithms for flash handling. As a result of TRIM command support for 4 KB random write access, the F-200 series can achieve a value of up to 600 IOPS (Input/Output operations per second), which is unusually high for CFast(TM) cards.
In order to tackle problems associated with unexpected storage failures, Swissbit has equipped the power fail safe F-200 series with a S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) protocol and Life Time Monitoring. The CFastTM cards achieve read/write speeds of up to 130MB/sec with a maximum power consumption of 0.9W. They are compatible with the CFastTM Specification 1.1 and now also support the SATA and CFastTM power save modes.
The F-200 Series will be available from August with storage densities of between 2 and 64GB. In accordance with the Swissbit philosophy, long-term availability with a fixed BOM (Bill of Materials) as well as shock and vibration resistance are guaranteed.
