Lexar Media announces 1GB CompactFlash Type II card  
Wednesday, January 23, 2002 | by
Lexar Media today has announced a new addition to its 16X Pro Series lineup, a 1GB CompactFlash Type II card that is to ship before the end of this month.


Lexar Media 16X Pro Series
CompactFlash Type II card
Lexar's new card is one of only a small handful of 1GB flash memory-based CompactFlash cards to be announced or hit the market to date. It has a suggested list price of US$1199 (dealers will usually sell for less than list) and features the other accoutrements of their Pro Series cards, including free data recovery for pros, upgradeable firmware and a lifetime warranty.

Late last year, Optosys and Lexar jointly developed a 1GB CompactFlash flash memory card aimed at industrial markets. It features a variant of Lexar's 8X controller (though the card is not speed-rated as such) and is sold exclusively by Optosys.

SimpleTech markets a 1GB CompactFlash Type II based on Hitachi's controller and flash memory, while Sandisk has announced, but not yet shipped, a 1GB CompactFlash Type I flash memory card.
