Cactus Technologies Launches MLC & pSLC CFast With Physical Write Protect Switch

240S CFast w/Physical Write Protect Switch

Cactus Technologies today introduced two new CFast products with physical write protect switches in MLC & pSLC versions. The new 240S Series Commercial Grade CFast Write Protect using MLC NAND and 245S Series OEM Grade CFast Write Protect complement our existing 900S Series Industrial Grade CFast Write Protect

Cactus Technologies today introduced two new CFast products with physical write protect switches in MLC & pSLC versions.  The new 240S Series Commercial Grade CFast Write Protect using MLC NAND and 245S Series OEM Grade CFast Write Protect complement our existing 900S Series Industrial Grade CFast Write Protect and are available for customers not requiring the extremely high write endurance cycles.

The Cactus Technologies 240S CFast Write Protect is based on MLC NAND and comes in capacities from 8GB to 128GB.  Extended -40C to 85C versions are also available from 16GB to 128GB.

The Cactus Technologies 245S CFast Write Protect is based on pSLC NAND and comes in capacities from 4GB to 64GB.  Extended -40C to 85C versions are also available from 8GB to 64GB.

"CFast with Physical Write Protect features offer a way to store, then protect data from being overwritten. Our technical staff can assist OEMs to implement this feature for their system designs."

Joseph Chang, VP Engineering

As with all Cactus products, both of these new CFast Write Protect products have Locked BOM Control, High Performance, Rugged Construction and advanced Wear Leveling, ECC and Defect Management. 

Product Change Notification to the OEM of any design changes in the controller, memory or firmware is a standard Cactus policy.  For more details, please contact a Cactus representative.
