Micron Technology, Inc., shipped the Company's first production 2 gigabit (Gb) 90 nanometer NAND flash memory products, hitting the target of its entry strategy into the NAND market. The demand for increased memory in mobile and mass storage applications positions NAND flash as one of the fastest-growing semiconductor segments. Micron's entry into this space with next-generation 2Gb densities enables the Company to capitalize on this segment growth. Aimed at flash cards, USB devices, mass storage devices and mobile applications, the addition of NAND flash memory complements Micron's broad portfolio of memory and CMOS image sensor solutions.

No evidence of X-ray scanner damage to flash cards

Dennis Hissink : 2004-12-16 15:30:40
Recent tests found no evidence of X-ray scanner damage to digital camera media cards or to the images they hold. The tests of scanner models currently in use in the U.S. transportation industry were jointly conducted by the International Imaging Industry Association (I3A), the leading global association for the imaging industry; SanDisk Corporation, a manufacturer of digital media cards; and the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA). These findings mean that digital cameras and their image storage media can travel safely in either checked or carry-on bags, which will be reassuring to holiday travelers. And though they were not explicitly tested, it is likely that images on camera-phones will be safe in either situation as well.


Lexar unveils new USB card form factor

Dennis Hissink : 2004-12-16 09:03:03
Lexar Media today announced a new USB card form factor designed for universal and superior interoperability to bring next generation storage, connectivity and utility products to a broad variety of computing, consumer electronics and mobile electronics devices. The new USB card form factor is based on the USB Type A connector as outlined in the Universal Serial Bus Specification. A mere 12 millimeters wide, 4.5 millimeters high and 31.75 millimeters long the card is no longer than the diameter of a penny. At half the width and a little more than twice the height, it is volumetrically similar to an SD card. The rugged, sturdy metal housing is intended to make the USB card suitable for use in a range of environments.

Samsung develops new Memory Card for Mobile phones

Dennis Hissink : 2004-12-13 08:15:16
Samsung announced today that it has developed an extremely small, low-power multimedia memory card (MMC) for mobile phones. The Samsung MMCmicro memory card has been designed to overcome a major hurdle in cell phone design -- achieving high performance with a low-power, removable memory card, now smaller than the size of a thumbnail. With dimensions of only 12x14x1.1mm, Samsung's new "MMCmicro" device is one-third the size of today's common reduced-size multimedia cards (RS-MMC). Samsung said that the design of its low-power card makes it easy to incorporate removable memory into progressively smaller mobile phones. Each card can operate on 1.8 or 3.3 volts of power.
