SST (Silicon Storage Technology, Inc., Nasdaq:SSTI) today announced it has expanded its CompactFlash card family to include 32 MByte and 48 MByte density cards. The new cards are based on SST's patented ATA controller technology and flash memory design expertise. Because of this technology, SST's CompactFlash cards offer the industry's fastest sustained write performance, up to 1.4 MByte/sec. This speed benefits users of CompactFlash cards in applications such as digital cameras, where a faster write performance leads to significantly lower set-up time between pictures. With the addition of these new products, SST's CompactFlash card family now includes cards ranging in densities from 4 to 48 MBytes.
The new 32 MByte and 48 MByte density cards are ideally suited for today's leading applications such as high-resolution mega-pixel digital cameras, MP3 audio players, voice recorders, personal digital assistants and industrial and medical systems. SST's patented ATA controller technology, and innovative firmware implementation of the flash memory interface, will enable the company's CompactFlash cards to also meet the density and speed requirements of emerging applications such as digital audio players and digital video recorders.
"Our research shows that the CompactFlash card market reached sales of $157 million in 1998 and that number is forecasted to grow to $1.8 billion by the year 2003," said Alan Niebel, director of non-volatile memory, Semico Research Corporation. "The CompactFlash card market is definitely expanding to include new products and applications where the demand for higher memory capacity and faster data access times is the driving force. SST has addressed both of these issues with its new CompactFlash cards."
SST's CompactFlash card family leverages the company's years of experience in ATA controller development and flash memory design. SST's CompactFlash cards utilize the company's proprietary Flash File System firmware that contributes to fast data access speeds and higher reliability. The company's CompactFlash cards achieve the industry's fastest sustained write performance through SST's unique implementation of the dual port SRAM buffer, direct memory access (DMA), and Flash File System.
"The most important factors to consider when purchasing CompactFlash cards are performance, memory density, and reliability," said Samuel Nakhimovsky, product marketing manager of Subsystem Products at SST. "SST's innovative system design coupled with the company's flash memory expertise allows our CompactFlash cards to seamlessly integrate high-density data storage flash and still achieve the industry's highest sustained write performance."
SST is an executive member of the CompactFlash Association (CFA) and the company's family of CompactFlash cards are compliant with CFA specifications for compatibility and interoperability. In addition, SST CompactFlash cards provide industry-standard PCMCIA-ATA compatibility and functionality. The 50-pin CompactFlash card, measuring 36.4 mm x 42.8 mm x 3.3 mm, the industry standard for small form factors, can easily be slipped into a passive 68-pin Type II adapter card that fully meets PCMCIA electrical and mechanical interface specifications. SST's family of CompactFlash cards are available in 4, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32 and 48 MByte densities and support both 5.0-Volts and 3.3-Volts power supply for read/write.
Pricing and Availability
Sample quantities of SST's 32 MByte and 48 MByte CompactFlash cards are currently available with production scheduled to begin in Q3 1999. SST's 32 MByte and 48 MByte CompactFlash cards are priced at $70 and $100 each, respectively, in 1,000 unit quantities. For further information about high-volume pricing and availability, please contact SST.
