    Q:What is the difference between a CompactFlash card and a CFast card?

    A:   Although CompactFlash and CFast cards have the same dimensions of 42.8*36.4*3.3mm, CompactFlash cards are compliant with CompactFlash Specification 1.0 to 6.0 and PATA connectors. CFast cards are considered the next-gen CompactFlash since they support SATA III interface, enabling much faster write/read speeds.

    Q:What is Cervoz Industrial SSD|Flash Storage Powerguard Technology?

    A:   The purpose of Cervoz Industrial SSD|Flash Storage Powerguard Technology is to protect data loss while encountering an improper power failure.  Powerguard would complete the task of saving your files from the controller DRAM into the flash storage after sudden power loss. Cervoz designs our flash modules with additional tantalum capacitors to store these extra charges.  With this special design, SSD|Flash Storage is constantly charging the tantalum capacitors with 12V power during its operation. Cervoz Industrial Powerguard 2.5” SATA SSD MLC include capacities from 32GB~512GB; it is suitable for critical industrial applications, such as networking, server / cloud, vehicle, medical and surveillance.

    Q:What is the TRIM command?

    A:   The TRIM command allows the OS to acknowledge the SSD controller the locations of unwanted pages proactively, saving operating time in the next write operation. NAND flash only writes data at the block level. When TRIM is active, and there is data to be erased or written, the SSD manages to write data into blank blocks with efficiency. TRIM is only active when both the operating system and the flash controller both support and enable this function.

    Q:What is the difference between industrial and commercial storage and memory products?

    A:   Industrial storage and memory are typically used for industries, devices can be installed in harsh environments therefore requiring a higher level of reliability and endurance to withstand pressure, humidity, shock and high operating temperatures.  Commercial products are used in comfortable office/home environments which do not require the above-mentioned aspects. In addition, consumers look for products with good performance and price, whereas industries need products with longevity supply and fixed BOM in order to gain product stability and compatibility.
