The CompactFlash Association has announced a new specification that brings 48-bit addressing, which increases the current capacity limitation of 137GB to 144PB -- as in petabyte. For the mathematically impaired, that breaks down to around 150 million gigabytes, or six million single layer Blu-ray discs. It also supports up to 32MB per transfer action, compared to 128KB today.
