As an advance addition to our popular IDE CF adapter, this Addonics SATA CF adapter is one of the fastest CF Readers/Writers in the market today. Connects directly to the fast SATA port, this adapter supports direct booting from the CF media as well as hot swapping* of the CF media without restarting the system. Comes bundled with 3.5" bay bracket, a standard height and a low profile PCI slot mounting brackets, the SATA can be installed into practically any system. The versatility and the fast performance of this adapter makes it an ideal CF read/write device for many industrial PCs, embedded systems or various vertical applications.
*while the SATA to CF Adapter is known to be bootable, only certain types of CF cards will be capable of booting off this adapter. A Transcend 2GB Industrial Compact Flash with UDMA Fixed Disk Mode feature was used to do a fresh install and tested to successfully boot Windows XP Media Center 2005 under 40 seconds.
**hot swap function depends on the SATA controller. Some early SATA controllers do not support hot swap. Please confirm with your controller supplier. If you need to add a SATA controller, we recommend using one of Addonics SATA controllers of which are all based on Silicon Image chip set.
note: there are reports that an incompatibility issue arises when the SATA CF adapter is used with the Intel D945 series motherboard.
