December 6, 2012 - Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the addition of Industrial use microSDHC Class 10 and CF170 CompactFlash memory cards to its industrial memory card product line. Ideal for use in small form factor devices with demanding performance and capacity requirements, Transcend's MLC-based microSDHC Class 10 and CF170 memory cards are the most reliable high speed, high volume compact storage solution.
Manufactured using brand-name MLC NAND Flash chips, Transcend's Industrial use microSDHC cards guarantee superior performance and long-term stability over their consumer-grade TLC counterparts. Combining advanced Flash technology with the top-of-the-line Class 10 speed rating, these cards provide impressive read/write speeds of up to 20MB/16MB per second, losing nothing in transfer performance despite their tiny dimensions. Thanks to their fast data transfer rates, enhanced reliability, and available capacities of up to 32GB, Transcend's Industrial use microSDHC Class 10 cards are the perfect OEM/bundle pack accessory for compact non-stop applications, including the latest digital cameras, DV recorders, mobile phones, and portable vehicle navigation systems.
Compliant with the latest CompactFlash 6.0 specification, Transcend's new industrial CF170 CompactFlash cards boast high-speed transfer rates of up to 90MB/s and up to an extra large 64GB capacity. Offering outstanding compatibility across a wide-range of platforms, such as outdoor vending machines, medical instruments, and road surveillance systems, CF170 CF cards can deliver peak performance under harsh environmental conditions, operating effectively between -25°C and 85°C. To further protect CF card data, built-in Advanced Power Shield technology directly monitors the host power input to prevent data loss in the event of a sudden power outage. Fully satisfying the demanding requirements of industrial applications, Transcend's MLC-based CF170 CF cards include all the same industrial features as SLC Flash based cards without the high cost.
To ensure the utmost level of quality, all Transcend Industrial products undergo extensive testing in all stages of production. In addition to offering excellent shock and vibration resistance, Transcend's Industrial memory cards feature built-in Error Correction Code (ECC) that helps detect and correct any errors found during data transfer. Transcend's Industrial use microSDHC Class 10 cards are offered in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities, while the Industrial CF170 CompactFlash cards are available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities.
