ATP pushes MultiMedia Card towards 1GB capacity

Mark Peters : 2003-10-10 14:01:40
We actually missed this one, but a few days ago ATP Electronics decided to expand the storage capacity of the good old MultiMedia Card. Where all eyes are focused on the Secure Digital card, this version of the stamp-sized storage card is according to ATP Electronics a cheaper to sell card then its brother, the Secure Digital card. Kent Eisenberg, ATP Product Marketing Manager, stated that the MultiMedia Card can be offered at a much attractive price point due to the lack of any licensing fees. The card is not on the market yet and a price is yet to be determined so at this point it is not clear whether this card will actually be cheaper then the Secure Digital card. We will wait and see what will happen.

Transcend releases 45x CompactFlash card

Dennis Hissink : 2003-10-01 15:33:11
Already announced last August, but this one slipped through the small mazes of our net. At the end of last year, Transcend Information Inc. (Transcend) announced the availability of its Ultra Performance 30X CompactFlash memory cards. Today, Transcend released the improved, Ultra Performance 45X CompactFlash memory cards in capacities of 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB and 2GB. Data transfer at 1X represents a rate for Flash memory of about 150KB/sec. Ultra Performance 45X therefore boosts data transfer to a maximum data transfer rate of about 6.8MB/sec. This increase in data transfer rate is extremely beneficial when using devices such as high-resolution digital still cameras.


Pretec and the story of 6GB CompactFlash type II

Dennis Hissink : 2003-09-23 20:06:42
During our CeBIT 2003 report we brought you the news from Pretec to bring a huge high-capacity storage card on the market. After this announcement we were told that the initial shipping price would be around $7999. Some days later SanDisk introduced their 4GB type I CompactFlash card with a stunning price tag of $1000. There will be no discussion which product will be more realistic, what a price difference! Yesterday we got information from Pretec that the 6GB CF type II card will be available by the end of this year. The price has been changed into $7499, a little bit of a disappointment. To make things more exciting, Pretec is planning to demonstrate a 12GB CF type II card late next year. I am curious.. what price tag will this baby get?
