What is a CompactFlash card?
CompactFlash is the world's most popular removable mass storage
device. The CompactFlash Memory Card is about the size of a
matchbook and only weighs half an ounce. The card was designed
based on the popular PC Card (PCMCIA) standard and can easily be
slipped into these slots with the use of a low-cost adapter.
Compact Flash technology has resulted in the introduction of a new
class of advanced, small, lightweight, low-power mobile products
that significantly increases the productivity and enhances the
lifestyle of millions of people. These products include digital
cameras, digital music players, desktop computers, handheld PCs (HPCs),
personal communicators, Palm PCs, Auto PCs, digital voice
recorders and photo printers.
