The company announced at CeBIT 2002 the availability of its 1GB CompactFlash memory card for high-resolution digital cameras, digital music players, PDAs, and other handheld consumer electronic devices.

The CF Type I device is claimed to store >1,000 digital images, >20h of digital music, and several hours of video. The card uses solid-state Flash memory chips to store data rather than mechanical, rotating disk drives.

SanDisk also announced the availability of software and hardware development tool kits to aid product designers in developing products using SanDisk's NAND Flash memory chips. The new tools extend support for design-in of SanDisk's binary and MLC NAND components.

The hardware tool kits include test and development bridge boards that provide connectivity to the Flash through either an ISA or PCI bus. The software tool kits include a Windows CE device driver and boot loader, as well as a complete FAT file system for NAND Flash memory.

The software development tool kit for NAND (SDDK-14) is priced at $19,950. The hardware development tool kits are priced at $950 (ISA development board, SDNEV-03) and $1,150 (PCI development board, SDNEV-04).
