ITT Interconnect Solutions (ICS) reveals card kits and connectors that meet the latest CFast standards, issued by the Compact Flash Association (CFA) targeted at faster storage speeds in such applications as digital cameras, handheld portable devices, computers and medical instruments. The new CFast standard is the combination of Compact Flash (CF) and ATA Serial Transport (AST) that is said to offer both flexibility and speed.

They require the ultrasonically-welded two-piece cover sets and 24-pin surface-mount connectors to offer PATA and SATA interfaces that conform to both Type I and Type II of the new specifications.

CFast card

ITT ICS' CFast card kits comply with the latest CFA standards.

The CFast cover sets consist of a plastic frame moulded around a stainless steel cover and oriented in position with guideposts that simplify assembly. Once assembled, the covers are ultrasonically-welded together with a continuous joint around the card perimeter. The card kits are considered the most secure, tamper-proof, rigid and robust versions available on the market today.

ITT ICS CFast card kits can be customised to meet any CFast product application, including optional mylar insulation. The module surface-mountable connectors are available in a variety of offsets and can be mated up to 10,000 cycles. ITT ICS also offers a complete line of USW assembly tools to support the new product. Additional applications of the RoHS-compliant CFast card kits include digital video equipment, security devices, set-top boxes and industrial/enterprise storage systems.
