Compact Flash (CF) is a worldwide, ultra-small, removable storage and I/O standard for capturing and transporting digital data, audio and images and performing I/O functionality such as modems, Ethernet, serial, BlueTooth wireless, laser scanning, etc. CF technology is essentially a PC-Card ATA specification adapted to a smaller form factor plus a TrueIDE specification compatible with ATA/ATAPI-4.

At 43mm (1.7") x 36mm (1.4") x 3.3mm (0.13"), the device's thickness is less than one-half of a current PCMCIA Type II card. It is actually one-fourth the volume of a PCMCIA card. The connector used with Compact Flash is similar to the PCMCIA Card connector, but with 50 pins.
