Yet another new flash card format: microSD
Posted on 14-Mar-2005 13:06 | Tags Filed under: News



The SD Card Association (SDA) announced plans to finalize specifications for a new, super-compact memory card. The microSD card, which the association expects to be the world's smallest memory card measures 11mm x 15mm x 1mm, will be completely compatible with SanDisk Corporation's TransFlash format.

The microSD card offers the advantages of removability and SD compatibility for use with a host of SD- and miniSD-enabled products. SanDisk TransFlash has been adopted by handset manufacturers. SanDisk plans to transition its TransFlash line to the microSD standard in Q3 2005.

Accordng to the SD Card Association, the microSD card meets wireless applications requirements for size, speed, performance, inter-operability and security. The SD Memory Card is the dominant memory format of choice for the wireless communications industry. The format is supported by SDA members Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, Sharp, Panasonic, Toshiba, NEC and other marketers of SD and miniSD-enabled mobile phones.
