Cactus Technologies, Ltd. Announces Industrial Grade CFast with Physical Write Protect Switch

Cactus Technologies, Ltd. today announced the launch of the new Industrial Grade CFast with a physical write protect switch in our industry leading 900S Series of products.

The operation of the write protect switch is quite straight forward. When the write protect switch is in the disabled position, the CFast card reads and writes as normal. When the switch is enabled, the card will read as normal, but all write attempts are ignored. Data already stored on the card is safe from overwrite.

Sai-Ying Ng, President of Cactus Technologies Ltd. said, “The CFast write protect switch feature provides designers a method to protect data in their applications. This write protect feature has already been successfully implemented in the gaming, military and other markets.”

The 900S Series CFast is an Industrial Grade flash card, based on SLC NAND memory, which adheres to the CompactFlash Association and SATA IO Group’s specifications. It is available in capacities from 1GB to 128GB and designed for applications requiring long life cycles, firm BOM control and unmatched reliability.

Joseph Chang, Vice President of Engineering, added, "The write protect switch available on the 900S CFast is one of several enabling features we offer on our flash storage products. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your application further.”
