USING STACKING TECHNOLOGY, SILICONTECH BUILDS 320 MEGABYTE COMPACT FLASH CARD.

Memory designer and maker SiliconTech Inc. last week announced its 320MB Type II CompactFlash card, the highest capacity available in this form factor. SiliconTech also says it reached its high capacity while maintaining its industry leading Read and Write speeds of up to 3MB per second Write and up to 1.5MB per second Read.

Reaching 320MB capacity has previously required use of a full size PCMCIA flash card or a rotating media device.

SiliconTech achieved its high capacity using its patented stacking technology used to stack the flash components. The card is 5mm thick, has 50 pins, and is compatible with any full size Type II slot with the use of a CompactFlash Type II adapter.

The 320MB card is a 256-Mbit flash device using AND architecture. The card can accept either a 3.3V or 5V power supply and features operating and non-operating shock resistance up to 2000G, the equivalent to a 10- foot drop.

Sources at Santa Ana, Calif.-based SiliconTech say reaching high capacity storage in a CompactFlash card will allow future cards to potentially include features inside the flash card. Such features could include fax modems, Ethernet, paging ability, and other I/O technologies.

Pricing for the SiliconTech 320MB CompactFlash Type II cards in OEM quantities of 1000 is $795.
