MultiMediaCard AssociationMMCA finalizes MMCmicro Card specification : The MultiMedia Card Association (MMCA) today announced that it has finalized the MMCmicro specification at its recent Summer General Meeting in Zurich, Switzerland. The new MMCmicro Cards represent the third MultiMediaCard form factor, along with MMCplus and MMCmobile Cards. Measuring 12x14x1.1 mm, they are about one-third the size of MMCmobile Cards. The MMCmicro Card standard is designed to meet the latest market requirements for data storage in mobile phones and digital cameras. It operates at either 3.3 volts or 1.8 volts and is capable of data transfer rate of up to 26MB/s (megabytes per second), the highest in performance amongst micro-sized memory card standards in the market.

In addition, 1GB (gigabytes) of flash memory can be packaged into an MMCmicro Card with existing NAND Flash technology. The resulting high performance and large memory capacity in a small footprint lets mobile phone manufacturers incorporate more multimedia features in the mobile handsets for the consumers to enjoy a rich multimedia experience wherever they go.

Consumer electronics devices
The MMCmicro Cards are similar in size to embedded flash memory, but are readily removable to allow for upgrading to different memory capacities and be interoperable with other consumer electronics devices. A 256MB MMCmicro Card can hold about 250 minutes of CD-quality music, or over 500 photos taken on a mobile phone with a two mega-pixel camera.

Micro sized memory cards
According to Danny Lin, MMCA Marketing Committee Co-Chair, "MMCmicro Cards is the latest memory card standard from the MMCA. These micro-sized memory cards, will permit handset manufacturers to pack large amounts of removable data storage into ever-smaller handsets. And as more memory-intensive audio and video applications appear on mobile handsets, they will in turn drive demand for even greater storage capabilities."

MMCmicro Card originally proposed by Samsung Electronics
The MMCmicro Card standard was originally proposed by Samsung Electronics Co. for adoption by the MMCA. Samsung and other companies have begun mass-producing the cards since March. MMCmicro Cards in densities up to 1GB will be available this year, with 2GB and 4GB expected in late '06 and mid '07, respectively.

About The MMCA (MultiMediaCard Association)
The MultiMediaCard Association (MMCA) is the open standard organization that defines the physical, functional and interface specifications of MultiMediaCards (MMCs), the postage-stamp size, removable memory cards used in mobile phone, digital imaging like digital cameras and portable consumer electronics applications. While removable memory cards are the primary focus, the MMCA also supports the adoption of the MMC interface standard in other embedded or removable components and subsystems, such as hard disk drives.
