The Ridata 16GB/300x SLC (Single Level Cell) Supreme CompactFlash card boasts a large capacity (16GB) and one of the fastest transfer rates available.
Professional photographers are faced with shooting larger, high resolution - once in a lifetime photos. They cannot risk losing these photos or their clients. We developed the Ridata 300X SLC CF card for these people, remarked Harvey Liu, president of Advanced Media, Inc. In today’s world of sophisticated mobile digital products needing secure SLC data storage and faster read times it just makes sense.
The Ridata 16GB/300X CF card is ideal for users of higher megapixel digital cameras, MP3 players, and PDAs. Its large 16GB capacity allows more storage while virtually eliminating the nagging wait time for data to record. Designed to work with most devices and operating systems, it can withstand extreme operating temperatures, ranging from below freezing to excessive heat.
Its 300x high-speed reading capability equates to approximately 45MB/per sec, while the high-speed writing capability is about 31MB/per second. (Note: Speeds may vary depending on device used.)
The Single Level Cell (SLC) CF card includes many superior technical features Ridata products are known for. Some of these are: safer single bit per cell storage; controller support for Ultra DMA Mode up to Mode 4; 8 or 16-bit host transfer support with any host speed using IORDY; and embedded Error Correction Code (ECC). The card also provides forward and backward functionality.
The Ridata 16GB/300x Supreme Series CF card is an excellent choice in solid-state mass-storage cards for SLR cameras or other applications that require high-environmental tolerance. It offers flash technology ruggedness, reliability, performance, and convenience. An automatic power management feature assures low power consumption.
