Samsung to produce high-speed microSDHC cards
Samsung has announced production of its high-performance microSDHC cards with high-speed data transfer rates that support the performance requirements on fourth generation smartphones. The new microSDHC cards are manufactured on a 20-nanometer process and have a class 10 speed rating making them capable of supporting the transmission of full HD video in real-time.
The new 32GB microSDHC cards can write at 12Mbps and read at 24Mbps providing users with more than double the maximum write speeds of the more typically used class 4 rated 32GB microSD cards. The new 32GB memory card incorporates 32Gb 3-bit NAND flash memory chips and a proprietary 3-bit NAND controller to deliver the high performance.
