Cactus Technologies Launches New 240S Series MLC mSATA and CFast

Cactus Technologies today announced the launch of the new 240S Series Commercial Grade mSATA and CFast which have well over twice the sequential read and write performance of the same form factor 220S Series products.

Both the 240S Series mSATA and CFast are based on the latest MLC NAND flash and designed to JEDEC standard MO-300B and the CompactFlash Association’s CFast standard respectively.  The 240S mSATA is offered in capacities from 8GB to 256GB.  The 240S CFast Card from 4GB to 256GB.

The new 240S Series mSATA and CFast are high performance flash storage devices and perfect for embedded solid state storage applications which do not require the extreme reliability of our leading Industrial Grade flash storage products.

CEO & President

These fast and reliable MLC NAND flash storage devices have Locked BOM Control, High Performance, Rugged Construction and advanced Wear Leveling, ECC and Defect Management. 

Product Change Notification to the OEM of any design changes in the controller, memory or firmware is a standard Cactus policy.  For more details, please contact a Cactus representative.

Sai-Ying Ng, President of Cactus Technologies said, “The new 240S Series mSATA and CFast are high performance flash storage devices and perfect for embedded solid state storage applications which do not require the extreme reliability of our leading Industrial Grade flash storage products.”
