Toshiba Corporation has announced that it will expand its family of EXCERIA memory cards with new microSD versions. EXCERIA (derived from a combination of “excellent” and “experience”) offers cards compliant with the UHS-I Memory Card Standard. The minimum recording speed is compliant with UHS speed class 1 and SD speed class 10.
These cards deliver the capacity, speed and performance needed to support the capabilities of the latest personal digital equipment including HD video recording and continuous image shooting with digital cameras.
The first microSD EXCERIA cards to be introduced will be the Type HD series. These are designed for use in extreme conditions and are intended to meet the needs of applications such as professional and sports photography where high reliability is essential. In addition to water resistance, the cards also protect data from the effects of airport x-ray scanners.
Type HD microSD cards have a maximum read speed of 95 MB per sec and a maximum write speed of 30 MB per sec. The first models will be available in Q4 2012 with capacities between 8 GB and 32 GB.
