Hyperstone controller for CFast™ cards and other SATA based NAND Flash storage applications

CFast™ solutions guarantee a reliable removable-card form factor similar to CompactFlash™. Due to its ruggedness, it remains a popular form factor for industrial applications that require higher performance than CompactFlash™ but need the same mechanical and electrical sturdiness.

CFast™ 1.0 is based on the Serial ATA (SATA 2) interface instead of PATA. The pin-out is different from a CompactFlash™ card, with a 7-pin data connector and a 17-pin power connector. CFast™ and CompactFlash™ cards are not directly compatible, but an adaptor can be used. As SATA can also emulate PATA command protocol, it is possible to use a CFast™ card in older CompactFlash™ systems. For CFast™ 1.0/1.1, the maximum transfer rate is the same as SATA 2.0, 300 MB/s, therefore it gives better performance than CF/PATA, which is limited to a maximum transfer rate of 167 MB/s. CFast™ 2.0 was introduced in 2014 and uses SATA 3.0 (600 MB/s).
