storage card is an ultra-small, removable data storage system first introduced
CompactFlash cards meet all PCMCIA standards. A CompactFlash card can be easily removed from a camera, handheld PC, Palm-size PC, AutoPC or other host system and slipped into a low cost, high transfer rate, reader/writer to move files instantaneously to a desktop PC. Files can be transferred to a notebook computer the same way or a low cost adapter is available to allow a CF card to be inserted directly into a PCMCIA card slot.
CompactFlash cards are compatible with Windows95, Windows98, WindowsCE, and many other operating systems. For example, Windows automatically recognizes a CF card as an additional disk drive and assigns a drive letter to the card. All files on the CF card are then easily accessible by any application or utility software.
The CFA was founded by twelve companies in October 1995 and now has 144 member companies.
The CompactFlash Association is a non-profit, mutual-benefit corporation that promotes adoption of CompactFlash as a worldwide, ultra-small, removable data storage card standard for capturing and transporting digital data, audio and images.
The latest CompactFlash And CF+ Specification Version 1.4 incorporates I/O functions (fax/modem, Ethernet, serial, SCSI, bar code reader, etc.) into the CF form factor.
The CFA, which makes the CompactFlash, CFA logo and CF logo trademarks available royalty-free to member companies, is headquartered in Palo Alto, CA.
The CF Specification is available to download free from the CFA web site at http://www.compactflash.org
