RiData Releases 233x/300x CF Cards and SATA HDD Converter Kit
Advanced Media, Inc., is a manufacturer and marketer of the Ridata brand of electronic storage products, and digital accessories. The company is pleased to announce Ridata 233x Lightning Series CompactFlash cards plus a SATA Converter RAID 1. Compatible Ridata CF cards range in capacity from 512MB to 32GB. The adapter allows a CF card to function as a Solid State Drive (SSD). In the case of a hard drive failure, the CF card via the converter appears as an ordinary hard drive to any OS and can be configured as a boot device.
"Many of our portable device customers would like to try an SSD without the bigger price tag. Our industrial customers face the problem of waiting for long hard disk drive (HDD) rebuilds that may cause over heating issues. By using our CF card and SATA converter, users can hot swap the HDD with the card and converter saving storage rebuild time with low temperatures and high transfer speeds," commented Harvey Liu, president of Advanced Media, Inc.
Now users can choose what capacity CF card to use and connect the CF card directly to the SATA ATA controller via a SATA converter in a RAID 1 configuration. Ridata now offers a SATA-CF adapter that can be installed in a drive bay or in a slot on the rear of the PC or notebook.
The Compact Flash Card Plus a SATA HDD Converter RAID 1 supports up to PIO Mode-6 and UDMA Mode-4. It is compatible with Ridata CF card capacities of 512MB through 32GB. The converter also supports Intel Robson cache technology that ensures the fast start-up of Centrino-based notebook PC's and is compatible with Microsoft Vista Ready Boost cache technology.
