LetsGoDigital - CeBIT 2003 - Live Showfloor Coverage
SanDisk introduces 1GB and 512MB Secure Digital cards
During the CeBIT 2003 event that is held from March 12 till March 19 SanDisk is introducing a whole new series of new interesting and innovating products. We attended the booth of SanDisk the day before the CeBIT actually started, so we could provide you with some live material from the show floor. The introduction of a 1GB Secure Digital and a 512MB Secure Digital card is one of those interesting new products. These large storage capacity cards have the size of a stamp and are capable of storing large amounts of data, audio and video. The 1GB Secure Digital card quadruples the current capacity of SanDisk SD cards. With the 1GB SD card, consumers can store up to 30 hours of digitally compressed music, more than 320 minutes of MPEG-4 compressed video or more than 1000 high-resolution digital images. The new SanDisk SD cards will be demonstrated in Hall 21, booth B-24.

The 512MB and 1GB SanDisk Secure Digital cards use one gigabit NAND Flash memory chips, based on patented multi-level cell (MLC) technology pioneered by SanDisk. MLC allows two bits of data to be stored in one memory cell, doubling memory capacity. SanDisk is currently shipping 16, 32, 64, 128 and 256MB Secure Digital cards. The 512MB and 1GB SanDisk Secure Digital cards are expected to be available in the second quarter of this year and have a suggested retail prices of $169.99 and $329.99 respectively.
The SD card is a flash memory storage device with built-in Content Protection Rights Management designed to facilitate the secure exchange of content between devices and the SD card. To date, more than 200 products with slots for the SD card have been introduced. This number continues to increase as products such as digital cameras become smaller in size, taking advantage of the SD card's convenient form factor and large storage capacity.
