4-6 Times Faster Than Standard 16-Bit Adapters: CardBus is a high-performance 32-bit version of the PC Card standard. CardBus cards are able to take advantage of internal bus speeds that can be as much as four-to-six times faster than 16-bit PC Cards. The CardBus CompactFlash Adapter will allow consumers to get the maximum capability out of their high speed CompactFlash cards without the bottleneck of the older 16-bit standard.
Since 1998, virtually all high-end notebook products have incorporated CardBus technology.All CardBus cards can be easily distinguished from standard PC Cards by the gold grounding shield strip across the connector. CardBus transfer rates are, theoretically, up to 132MB a second. The design provides for a compact, rugged card/adapter combination that can be inserted completely within its host computer without any external cabling. Many photographers, especially Pro's, are looking for ways to reduce the amount of extra equipment they have to carry during photo shoots.
The CardBus Secure Digital Adapter will continue to support the hot-swapping and plug-and-play capabilities that users have come to expect from 16-bit PC Cards. The high transfer rate and ease of use make the CardBus Secure Digital Adapter competitive with USB 2.0 and FireWire readers.
