Microdia

Microdia has added a new ultra-fast line of flash memory cards – the XTRAPRO II. Aimed primarily at professional photographers, the XtraPro II cards offer breakthrough speeds of 300X, capable of achieving maximum read/write speeds of 45.0 megabytes (MB)/second. This could well be a world record of sorts as of this writing.

A data transfer rate of 1X is roughly equal to 150 kilobytes per second. Microdia said its professional XtraPro II series includes a wide variety of flash memory cards and capacities, all with maximum read/write speeds of 45.0MB/sec and capacities from 1MB to 16.0GB.

The company explained that the XtraPro II memory cards are based on Single Level Cell (SLC) NAND Flash technology, which stores one bit per cell, and utilize an optimized controller combined with large block NAND technology to achieve high data transfer rates.

Microdia’s series of solid state storage cards include Compact Flash, SDHC, SD, SD+USB, miniSD, microSD, MMCplus, MMCmobile and MMCmicro form factors.
