New CFast Host Connector from ITT enables faster storage speeds for Compact Flash standard devices

by donpedro

ITT Interconnect Solutions has announced a new 24-pin surface mount CFast host connector which meets Compact Flash standards introduced by the Compact Flash Association (CFA). A founding member of the CFA since 1995, ITT ICS helped develop the CF standards, which required designers to integrate both parallel and serial interfaces into a single connector and cover set package. The new CFast specifications are based on SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) and require connector solutions which combine Compact Flash (CF) and ATA Serial Transport (AST) to provide flexibility and speed in a wide variety of applications, from enterprise storage systems to hand-held portable devices. The new ITT CFast 24-pin surface-mount host connector was developed to meet the demand for faster storage speeds needed by devices such as high-end video and digital cameras, personal computers and security and medical equipment.
