August 28, 2007 - Flash memory manufacturer ATP Electronics, Inc. released what the company calls "one of the world’s fastest CompactFlash cards equipped with the ability to support UDMA (Ultra Direct Memory Access) mode," according to a company press release Friday. To support the new memory card, ATP is also introducing a compatible USB 2.0 card reader. Pricing has not yet been announced for the ATP ProMax II CompactFlash card or reader.
The ATP ProMax II CF card is available in 2 GB, 4 GB, and 8 GB storage capacities. Geared toward digital SLR users, the ATP ProMax II CF card has a 300x write speed. Promising a 45 MB per second transfer rate, the ATP memory card enables photographers to shoot continuously in high resolution format.
"Our ProMax II CompactFlash Cards deliver uncompromising performance for next generation DSLR cameras with UDMA feature. At the same time, we also wanted to give everyday users a convenient, cost effective way to take advantage of the new interface," said ATP Vice President of Sales Michael Plaksin in the release.
To complement the ATP flash card, ATP announced a new card reader that supports both CF and SDHC memory cards. The ProMax card reader is compatible with USB 2.0 ports and has a read speed of 220x, according to the release.
"...we developed our USB2.0 UDMA card reader that allows for a performance increase on an interface that is widely used and adopted today," Plaksin said.
