CF extend 162 & CF extend 162E
CompactFlash™ Socket Saver and Extender Cards

In a high volume production environment a CF test 220 socket tester may see several thousand insertion/removal cycles a month. To prevent wear and tear on the CF test 220's 50-pin connector, Sycard supplies a low-cost socket saver, the CFextend 162. The CF extend 162 is inserted between the CompactFlash™ socket and the CF test 220 unit.

The CF extend 162 can also be used as a "Type extender" which allows the user to insert a Type II CF+ card (5mm thick) into a Type I (3.3mm) or Type II (5.0mm)slot. By using the CF extend 162, Type II peripherals, such as the IBM Microdrive™ hard disk drives or RF/radio devices, can be inserted into computers that only support Type I cards. Before attempting to use the CF extend 162 in such an application, the user should verify if the power consumption of the Type II CF+ Card is compatible with the host system.

The CF extend 162 is available in two configurations. The standard CF extend 162 comes without a card ejector. This configuration is designed for applications that don't require frequent card changes.

The CF extend 162E provides an integral ejector mechanism and is designed for applications that require frequent card insertion/removal or physical card protection.
