SanDisk is doubling the capacity of its CompactFlash 5000 flash memory cards for industrial markets.
The new 16-gigabyte (GB) high-performance CompactFlash 5000 card was unveiled at CeBIT 2008 earlier this year.
With twice the capacity of its 8GB CompactFlash introduced last year, the new card uses binary memory, designed by SanDisk specifically for mass storage applications, to achieve a sustained read and write performance of up to 30MB per second.
It also includes an intelligent controller that provides a high-level interface to the host computer. This controller manages data storage and retrieval, defect handling and diagnostics, power management and clock control.
