Embedded World Preview: Flash memory for 4k ultra high definition

February 10, 2015 OpenSystems Media

The historically dominant CompactFlash card, though trusty and reliable, always had a limited shelf life in today’s embedded market due to its IDE-based flash controller being incapable of performing to the level of comparable emerging SATA-based alternatives.

The new CFast addressed that – its 2.0 variant now confirming to the lightning SATA III specification. Traditional CF cards would struggle with HD video recording, yet the CFX650 CFast 2.0 memory cards from Transcend leapfrog 1080p to easily encompass 4K ultra high definition, with 370 Mbps write speeds.

Designed for today’s professional cinematography applications within cameras and camcorders, the CFX650 memory card range boasts the fastest transfer speeds available on the current market, yet avoids the need to switch memory devices by massive capacities, up to 512 Gb – with built in Error Correcting Code (ECC) to avoid corruption of that precious data.

Look for daily updates about what you can expect to see at Embedded World as we get closer to the show on February 24-26.
