BSQUARE announces SDIO support for Windows Mobile 5 and faster data transfer
Posted on 11-May-2005 08:54 | Tags Filed under: News



BSQUARE has announced a new product roadmap for SDIO Now! Version 2.x (V2.x) system software technology. The announcement coincides with the introduction of Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0, which includes code licensed and adapted from the 2.0 version of SDIO Now! software. SDIO Now! V2.x software offers enhanced functionality and high performance for MMC/SD/SDIO Cards necessary to support new applications and services emerging in the market.

According to the company, mobile and embedded devices run increasingly sophisticated applications, requiring fast data transfer from I/O peripheral and memory cards. SDIO Now! V2.x delivers speedy performance today with Fast Path technology, which decreases latency and boosts system throughput by up to 200 percent. Demand for higher density memory cards is addressed with support for 2GB MMC/SD cards and 4GB SD cards. Another feature supported by SDIO Now! V2.x is SD Password protection which allows consumers to protect their personal information and content on SD cards.

The roadmap from BSQUARE also includes new features supporting MMCV4 cards in 4 Bit mode which deliver up to 300 percent higher performance than 1-bit mode. As host controllers become available for MMCV4 - 8 Bit, BSQUARE will introduce support for 8-Bit mode. These new features of personal data security, utilization of high density cards with faster access speed and better performance are solid enhancements to the widely adopted SDIO Now! System Software Stack.

"We defined SDIO Now! V2.x roadmap and features based on consumer trends and direct customer feedback. These features provide significant advantages necessary for customers to stay competitive in the market," said Pawan Gupta, Vice President of Products, for BSQUARE. "The announced roadmap lets current and prospective licensees see the future of SDIO Now! so they can make the right product design decisions today."
