IRVINE, CA — Sonnet Technologies Inc. (www.sonnettech.com) introduced the first product in its new SF3 Series of Thunderbolt 3 pro media readers at last week's NAB Show in Las Vegas. The SF3 Series’ CFast 2.0 card reader features dual card slots and a 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 interface. It can ingest files from two cards at concurrent data transfer speeds up to 1,000MB/s, which is more than double the average ingest speed of USB 3 card readers.
The compact CFast 2.0 card reader is bus-powered with no power adapter required. Each member of the SF3 Series family will feature dual card slots, a Thunderbolt 3 interface, and a rugged aluminum enclosure designed for stacking multiple readers. At the NAB 2017, Sonnet also previewed upcoming models in the product family, including an SxS reader.
