Agile Technologies, Inc. designs and manufactures Flash memory modules and
cards in a variety of form factors. Because of its form factor and
silicon independence as well as its technical experience, Agile
Technologies, Inc. can offer unique advantages for OEM Flash Card requirements:
Agile Technologies can provide OEMs with unbiased advice as well as the
optimum Flash card solution for each individual application.
The company is able to provide the most cost effective solution for the
application through its relationships with numerous suppliers for NOR/NAND Flash
and controller ASICs.
Non volatile Storage Solutions
Scalable, Upgradeable, Reliable
Preprogrammed to Customer Specifications
Agile Technologies offers SIMMs, DIMMs and SO DIMMs
modules based on multiple Flash memory technologies. Flash modules
from Agile Technologies are predominantly used in embedded controller
applications, routers, servers and telecom switches for storage of
code and/or data.
Miniature Flash Drives
IDE Flash Drives are designed for applications which
require high random access performance, high reliability and low power
consumption under a wide range of operating temperatures and conditions.
These rugged solid-state drives are an ideal code and data storage solution
realized in industry standard 1.8” & 2.5” and 3.5” form factors. Agile
Technologies also offers Miniature Flash drives that plug directly into a
standard 40 pin IDE connector, thus eliminating the need for cables.
USB Flash Drives operate as a secure, reliable, removable disk, using a
standard Universal Serial Bus (USB) device interface. The host computer
immediately detects it, recognizing it as a supplementary removable disk and
assigning it a drive letter. USB Flash Drives support complete and
instantaneous plug and play interoperability on the latest operating
systems, with no software drivers required.
Linear Flash Cards
Linear Flash PC Cards support true random read and write access. This
allows the system to execute programs directly from the card (Execute in
Place). Non volatile Linear Flash cards are used in a variety of
applications, including networking and telecom equipment, industrial
controls and instrumentation. Linear Flash cards from Agile
Technologies, Inc. are fully PC Card (Type I) compatible and operate faster
than hard disks, but are removable like floppy disks. Since there are no
moving parts, Linear Flash cards operate reliably in conditions that can be
normally hostile to data. Agile Technologies' Linear Flash PC Cards are
offered in a variety of read/write voltages. Typical access times are 150ns.
However, some faster cards are available.
CompactFlash (CF) cards achieve densities up to 1 GB for the CF Type
II card and 640MB for the CF Type I card since the recent introduction
of 1Gbit Flash chips. Agile Technologies' CF cards typically write data at
roughly two to three times faster than other CF products on the market
today. Agile Technologies' high-performance CompactFlash™ product
offerings are targeted at OEM markets such as networking, telecommunications
and data communication applications as well as mobile and embedded
computing, automotive, GPS and industrial applications. CompactFlash™ cards
can be found in set-top boxes, voice recorders, digital still and video
cameras and MP3 players. They are also used to communicate and store faxes
or voice mail on next-generation mobile phones.
ATA Flash PC cards
Agile Technologies' PC cards are based on the same controllers as
CompactFlash cards and offer a backward-compatibility solution for PC Card
slots. The 68-pin Type I ATA flash cards are compatible with Type I, II and
III PC card slots. ATA Flash PC cards are used in applications such as
notebooks, telecom and networking equipment. High-density ATA Flash cards
bring low power and maneuverability to these applications. Agile
Technologies' PC cards offer a high-capacity mass storage solution which act
like a hard drive but are fast and portable like solid state storage
