SanDisk 16GB CompactFlash 5000 Memory Card

SanDisk is doubling the capacity of its CompactFlash 5000 memory cards for the industrial market to 16GB. In addition to fast read and write speeds, the cards provide a high level of durability and reliability for mission-critical applications such as industrial PCs, medical instruments, military applications, point-of-sale (POS) equipment and gaming machines.

The new 16GB high-performance CompactFlash 5000 card was unveiled at the on-going (March 4-9) CeBIT 2008 technology trade fair in Hannover, Germany.

The rugged CF card can sustain read and write performance of up to 30 megabytes (MB) per second. It supports a transfer mode of up to UDMA 4, an industry standard that enables high data transfer rates and includes performance boosters and on-the-fly error detection.
