Pretec Unleashes CFast Card, 300% Faster than CF Cards

Pretec introduces what it calls the CFast Storage Card, a CompactFlash card that incorporates high-speed capabilities of the SATA interface.

The transfer speed of first-generation Pretec CFast Storage Card is up to 160MB/s, about 300% faster than the fastest CF card today. This will enable photographers to take advantage of high-speed shooting offered by high-end camera systems.

Pretec CFast Storage Card contains a single chip controller and flash memory modules in a matchbook-sized package with a 7+17-pin connector that consists of a SATA compatible 7 pin signal connector and a 17 pin power and control connector. This single chip controller interfaces with a host system allowing data to be written to and read from the flash memory module. Measuring only 36mmX43mm, Pretec CFast Storage Card is touted to be the smallest SATA-interfaced solid state drive (SSD) in the world.
