- Ultra DMA 167 Mode: Enables the development of higher performance cards while providing backward compatibility.
Sanitize: Provides an efficient NAND Block Erase of the entire user data area to return the CF card to "fresh" state before reuse or repurposing. Leverages a command defined in INCITS T13 ACS-2.
Provide Trim Before Write Attribute Protocol:Provides an incremental performance increase by optimizing device physical allocation (allows improved internal data organization).
Mandatory Write Caching: An enhancement for certain Video Performance Guarantee profiles to improve write performance of CompactFlash cards.
Operating Temperature Range: n optional card capability to report the operating temperature range of the card. This allows card/camera combinations to enable use in extreme temperatures.
Todays highest performance CompactFlash cards are capable of 600x or 90MB/sec throughput performance using the current Ultra DMA 133. This new proposed Ultra DMA 167 mode along with 48-bit addressing defined in the CF5.0 specification will enable the development of CompactFlash cards with up to 33% more throughput performance.
CompactFlash card slots are commonly used in digital cameras, video cameras and other electronic platforms including embedded systems, single board computers, data recorders, heart monitors, defibrillators, and slot machines.
