Parvus Corp. release its CFII-IDE remote CompactFlash to IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) adapter, designed with both 40-pin and 44-pin IDE connectors.

Fully compatible with Type I and Type II cards, the new product enables both solid-state CompactFlash and IBM Microdrive media to be used as a bootable IDE (ATA) disk drive in any computer with an IDE interface. It features power and drive activity LED indicators, a master/slave selection jumper, four mounting holes, and front-panel mounting brackets. Transparent to the OS, the CFII-IDE does not require any device drivers to work with DOS, Windows, Linux and any other PC-based OSs. A CompactFlash card appears as a small IDE hard disk drive to the BIOS and OS.

Rated for operation between -40C and 85C, the device measures 6.41-by-5.55-by-0.95mm, which makes it suitable for embedded systems requiring reliable, removable Flash memory storage.

The adapter is priced at $59 each in 100-unit quantities and is expected to be in stock by mid-to-late Q3 2004.
