ATP announces 2GB SD flash cards
ATP Electronics Inc. announced that its 2GB SD flash cards are ready for mass production for its OEM customers, distributors and retailers. The 2GB cards will meet the specific demand for higher capacity, highly durable flash cards set by GPS navigation units, high end digital photography, medical record keeping, and the ever-popular portable music-players.

The ATP 2GB cards, like its smaller SD siblings, are intended to withstand harsh environment, offering protection from water, dust, electrostatic discharge, and extreme temperatures.

The twofold increase in capacity to 2GB will also allow high end, professional digital photographers to store pictures with the highest quality settings (130 - 6 megapixel, uncompressed Tiff files). Although this does result in large file sizes, a fast transfer rate will continue to allow for fast shooting. The company says the card can transfer at a max speed of up to 10MB/s (60x).

ATP gives the cards a 10 year data retention rating and a lifetime of 100,000 read/writes. ATP 2GB SD cards will be priced at a MSRP of US$249.
