New ITT ICS CFast card kits meet latest standard for flash-based memory cards

11 October 2011

Robust and customisable for any CFast product: meets Compact Flash Association Type I and II specifications - detailed in new Applications Note

Leading global connector manufacturer and supplier ITT Interconnect Solutions has announced the launch of a new line of ultrasonically welded two-piece cover sets and 24-pin surface mount connectors designed to meet the latest CFast standards issued by the Compact Flash Association. Developed to accommodate consumer demand for faster storage speeds in such applications as digital cameras, handheld portable devices, computers and medical instruments, this latest CFast standard is the combination of Compact Flash (CF) and ATA Serial Transport (AST) which offers both flexibility and speed.

ITT ICS developed its new CFast card kits and connectors to provide both the parallel (PATA) and serial (SATA) interfaces demanded by the new CFA standard and conform to both Type I and Type II of the new specifications. The CFast cover sets consist of a plastic frame moulded around a stainless steel cover and oriented in position with guide-posts, which simplifies assembly. Once assembled, the covers are ultrasonically welded together with a continuous weld joint around the perimeter of the card and are the most secure, tamper-proof, rigid and robust card kits available on the market today.

ITT ICS CFast card kits can be customised to meet any CFast product application. Further product features include optional mylar insulation which can be customised to suit any specification. The 24 position host and module surface-mountable connectors are available in a variety of off-sets and can be mated up to 10,000 cycles. CFast card kits are available in either Type I or Type II packages and are RoHS compliant. ITT ICS also offers a complete line of USW assembly tools to support the new product.

Additional applications include digital video equipment, security devices, set-top boxes and industrial/enterprise storage systems. Further details are available in an Applications Note downloadable from:
