Recommended SD and CF cards

July 2007

Note: This information is provided as a reference and does not imply that Juniper Systems will provide full support for the use of any specific third-party hardware with a Juniper Systems product.


Below are lists of SD (SDIO, SDHC) and CF cards (devices and adapters) which have been tested in the Archer Field PC running the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system (our release 1.03 and higher (2.1.5 being the latest)). Most of these cards which are still generally available for purchase from us or each manufacturer have also been tested in all our releases of the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system as well.


If you have some other SDIO or CF card device adapter that you would like to use in the Archer Field PC, it must not exceed the physical limitations as specified in the "Maximum SD and CF card height (length)" knowledge base article.
