Lexar Launches 34-Nanometer SDHC Memory Cards

Lexar Launches 34-Nanometer SDHC Memory Cards

Lexar Media is trumpeting two new high-capacity memory cards, the Lexar Platinum II 32GB SDHC and the Lexar 16GB microSDHC, featuring Micron Technology’s new 34-nanometer architecture.

The newly architected 32Gb multi-level cell (MLC) NAND chip is 17 percent smaller than Micron’s first-generation 32Gb chip. The 16Gb MLC NAND chip, at just 84 square mm, provides high-capacity in an ultra tiny package, the company said. Micron is also now sampling 8- and 16Gb single-level cell (SLC) NAND chips using the 34nm process.

Both products feature an ONFI 2.1 synchronous interface that delivers transfer speeds of up to 200 megabytes per second (MB/s). In comparison, traditional SLC NAND is limited to 40 MB/s.

The Lexar Platinum II 32GB SDHC card is available now for $140. The Lexar 16GB microSDHC mobile memory card costs $100. Lexar is a subsidiary of Micron Technology.
