Compact Flash cards are, as one could judge from the name, portable memory cards based on flash memory technology. Being one of the early competitors in the crowded field of memory card formats, Compact Flash was introduced by the SanDisk Corporation in 1994. Compact Flash memory cards are most commonly found in digital still cameras, digital movie cameras, PDAs, embedded computers, handheld GPS systems, MP3 players and other portable devices. Compact Flash and Secure Digital (SD) memory cards comprise a large portion of the data storage found in these markets. As a bonus, both types are capable of being read by a card reader attached to a computer.
The interests of the Compact Flash format are overseen by the CompactFlash Association. The group is headquartered in Palo Alto, California and is comprised of Canon, Hewlett-Packard, Lexar, and SanDisk. Through the Association, these companies work together to promote the adoption of Compact Flash across a variety of consumer electronics.
