CFast APCFAxxxxTAXS-XXDX 1. General Description CFast emerges as the evolution of the CompactFlash card, by adopting SATA transfer bus rather than PATA, which delivers a much higher data transfer rate required in industrial and enterprise storage usages. Although not backward compatible with its former CF form factor, CFast proves to be a more advanced embedded solution for cache, storage acceleration, communication and networking applications that require small physical fit. Apacer CFast is designed with a powerful controller that easily breaks the performance limit for CompactFlash by...

CFast APCFAxxxxTAXS-XXDX 5. Flash Management 5.1 Error Correction/Detection CFast implements a hardware ECC which is based on the BCH algorithm. It can detect and correct up to 16 bits or 24 bits error in 1K bytes depending on the NAND flash configuration used. 5.2 Bad Block Management Current production technology is unable to guarantee total reliability of NAND flash memory array. When a flash memory device leaves factory, it comes with a minimal number of initial bad blocks during production or out-of-factory as there is no currently known technology that produce flash chips free of bad...

CFast APCFAxxxxTAXS-XXDX 5.6 S.M.A.R.T. S.M.A.R.T. is an abbreviation for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, a self-monitoring system that provides indicators of drive health as well as potential disk problems. It serves as a warning for users from unscheduled downtime by monitoring and displaying critical drive information. Ideally, this should allow taking proactive actions to prevent drive failure and make use of S.M.A.R.T. information for future product development reference. Apacer devices use the standard SMART command B0h to read data out from the drive to activate...
