CompactFlash wizzes up to 66 MB/sec

THE VERY LATEST version of the CompactFlash and CF+ specs - revision 3.0 - have been made available here at the CES Show. These will take the effective data throughput rates up from 16 MB/sec to 66 MB/sec.

Other enhanced features include Ultra DMA 33 and Ultra DMA 66 interfaces which help reduce the processor power required to manage CompactFlash data transfers. Faster PCMCIA ATA memory and i/o modes have been added and can now provide interface transfer rates up to 25 MB/sec.

Commenting on the new specs, CFA chairman, Shigeto Kanda, claimed, "Having the fastest interface data rate of any Flash cards is a significant step for Compactflash. Data write performance of digital SLR cameras as well as other high performance cameras will not be limited by the Flash card interface."

The revision 3.0 specs are available free . µ
