To inject new life into what is the oldest, most established flash form factor available, the CompactFlash Association (CFA) is now evolving the familiar card architecture with a serial interface, based on the workhorse Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) specification that has served the disk drive industry so well.

This evolution has yielded CFASTTM, a new specification that leverages the nearly decade of experience the SATA interface has in rotating media. That experience and history will make the transition straightforward for adopters. The new CFAST specification, which is the combination of CF and ATA Serial Transport (AST), will enable new applications in embedded and industrial markets, where flexibility, speed and SATA are important design considerations.
