Irvine, Calif. Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., (TAEC) and its parent, Toshiba Corp., have expanded their line of large capacity miniSD Memory Cards with the introduction of a 2-gigabyte (GB) capacity card. The miniSD Card is much smaller than a standard SD Memory Card but delivers increasingly large capacity. Its primary application is in mobile devices with miniSD slots, but it can also be used in standard SD slots with an adapter.
“As mobile phones increasingly offer high-resolution cameras and support for digital music, demand is growing for a small, versatile, high capacity storage device for images and music. For the growing percentage of cell phones equipped with a miniSD Card slot, Toshiba’s 2GB card addresses these requirements,” said Brian Kumagai, business development manager, NAND Flash, for TAEC.
The 2 GB miniSD memory card offers a 5 MB/sec. maximum write speed and is compatible with the SD memory card standard. Power supply voltage range is 2.7- to 3.6V. The card measures 20.0mm(W)21.5mm(L)1.4mm(T). The memory card will be available in June 2006 priced at $109.99.
The SD memory card is a flash memory storage device designed to meet the converging security, capacity, ergonomic and performance requirements of emerging audio, video, data and multimedia consumer electronics markets. The SD Memory Card was jointly developed by Toshiba Corp., SanDisk Corp. and Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd.
