SanDisk ships 32GB mobile memory card
SanDisk Corp. plans to announce tomorrow that it has started shipping what it claims is the world's highest-capacity removable memory card for mobile phones - the 32GB SanDisk microSDHC.
The new microSDHC card targets the smartphone market and uses third-generation 32nm lithography techniques with 3-bit-per-cell NAND flash technology.
Most manufactures of NAND flash products use 2-bit-per-cell multi-level cell (MLC) memory.
"With the large volume of photos, videos and music that consumers create and carry around, a high-capacity memory card is a must-have component of today's smartphone," said Sanjay Mehrotra, SanDisk's president, in a statement. "This is the highest-capacity card of its type, and SanDisk is pleased to be the first to ship such an advanced product. This marks yet another important first in our innovative history in the flash memory industry."
