& Embedded Systems

The Photon series presents PATA interfaces in a standard compact flash specification CFA 4.1, transport protocols and physical interconnect (ATA/ATAPI-6), compact flash form factor SLC flash. Asine ASCF delivers performance and proven reliability for data and mission critical systems. Added benefits of flexibility are built into Asine’s ASCF – compact flash storage systems, including expandable storage capacity as flash memory capacities increase. The ASCF support OEM application specific features such as industrial and commercial temperatures, and other standards, sanitize fast erase, high grade Industrial workmanship, optional configuration freeze and more.

The ASCF is a top reliable compact flash high performance mass storage solid state drive with no moving parts, ideal to meet the reliability requirements of the military and aerospace, video and audio servers, as well as broadcasting systems and enterprise computing. The ASCF is designed to withstand extreme shocks, vibrations and harsh environmental conditions while operating without compromising on data integrity.
