CompactFlash™ (50 pin) to Hard drive (44 pin) Adapter

A smart new adapter instantly gives any Advantech SBC with a CompactFlash™ socket the ability to add an additional 2 IDE devices. Most single board computers offer only 1 IDE channel which can support 2 IDE devices. This adapter now gives an additional IDE channel for a total of up to 4 IDE device support. Since systems normally support a CD-ROM or fax/modem IDE device on chassis, this device is a convenient way to add additional IDE support.

A Simple Way to Increase Capability

With this adapter, more options become available to the user. Customers can keep their original HDD but upgrade capacity through addtional devices. Also, in many embedded solutions, operating systems can stay on one HDD while applications or important data can be easily exchanged from the other HDD device. The latter is becoming increasingly more common as products are being designed with portability and data exchange capability in mind.

Industrial strength ruggedness, resistance to vibration and solid pin connections make this adapter a strong IDE platform users can depend on. The following Advantech SBCs with CompactFlash™ sockets are perfect for utilizing this adapter.

  • PCA-6751
  • PCI-6771
  • PCA-6770
  • PCA-6752
  • PCA-6753
  • PCN-6351
  • PCM-9570
  • PCM-5820
