Addonics Rolls Out New CFast Adapters

CFast HDD Adapter

Addonics Technologies unveils a family of CFast adapters which connects a CFast media to any SATA port inside a desktop PC, rack mounted system or notebook computer. CFast media touts a high speed interface capable of up to 600 MB/sec read/write speed.

Addonics says the CFast HDD adapter enables high performance CFast media to be used as a direct replacement for 2.5″ SATA hard drives. The CFast HDD adapter can be installed into practically any computing equipment or notebook computer with optional mounting brackets.

The SATA CFast adapters enable CFast media to be used as a removable storage media on any desktop system via a PCI slot or 3.5 inch drive bay and connect to the standard SATA interface. Once installed, you can use the CFast media just like a bootable Solid State Drive (SSD) or as a removable SSD.

Addonics CFast flash memory cards (8GBs or 32GBs) double the transfer rate to 100MB/s over Compact Flash memory while still maintaining the small original CF form factor. CFast media appears as an ordinary SATA hard drive to any OS and can also be configured as a boot device.

List prices are $98 for the 8G CFast media, $23.95 for the SATA CFast media on a PCI slot and $18.95 for the CFast HDD adapter.
