First Swissbit Longevity CompactFlashTM card with maximum long-term availability
Bronschhofen, Switzerland – June 3, 2014 – Swissbit AG presents the C-300 Longevity, the first CompactFlashTM card with long-term availability through to at least 2021. Its feature set, which includes an optimised random write speed and backward compatibility, makes the C-300 Longevity the ideal choice for highly-demanding applications in the telecommunications and networking market, as well as applications requiring maximum longevity due to time-consuming and cost-intensive re-qualification processes.
In addition to long-term availability, the C-300 Longevity offers a fixed BOM (bill of material) and an extra-long transition phase of at least 24 months between PCN/EOL notification and the last shipment. Swissbit customers can enjoy years of guaranteed supply without time-consuming and cost-intensive re-qualification. With TRUE IDE and PC card modes, the Swissbit CompactFlashTM card delivers optimum backward compatibility to older systems, protocols and interfaces. It also features a high random write speed of more than 150 Kbyte/second.
The use of the most reliable SLC NAND flash technology available plus integrated power fail safety guarantee the best possible data reliability. Thanks to its sophisticated diagnostic functions, including detailed status information through the enhanced S.M.A.R.T. interface and the Life Time Monitoring Tool, the user is always aware of the CompactFlashTM card’s current status which helps eliminate unexpected downtime. High quality is guaranteed through carefully selected materials and comprehensive quality tests alongside the highest manufacturing standards. Customers hence benefit from a very low TCO (total cost of ownership).
The C-300 Longevity is available in densities from 32MB up to 8GB and in both commercial (0°C-70°C) and industrial temperature range (-40°C-85°C). Samples are already available for purchase; mass production is scheduled to begin within Q2/2014.
