Pretec Introduces 16GB CF Card
Pretec has increased the storage capacity on its line of fast CF (Compact Flash) memory cards of CF card, releasing a new 16GB (gigabytes) CF card, the new next model up from its 12GB series.

The company says the demand for higher capacity and better performing flash cards has been increasing with introduction of ever higher resolution digital cameras and the emergence of new multimedia appliances and industrial applications. Over the last 10 years the company has seen a 4,000 times increase in CF capacity from the first announcement of Pretec 4MB CF card to this 16GB unit.

Constructed with NAND flash devices and rugged metal housing with CF Type II form factor, Pretec 16GB CF card is also offered with wide operating temperatures for industrial and military applications.

For those applications demanding data security, Pretec also provides Secure CF card, in which the host device BIOS or firmware must be modified in order to fully utilize the security features.

Access speed can be up to 80X (12MB/s) for Pretec industrial CF card and up to 133X (20MB/s) for Pretec commercial CF card. Pretec 16GB CF card will start sampling in October with mass production in Q4 of this year.
