MMCA Pops New miCard Memory Card Format

Multimedia Card Association MMCA Logo

The MultiMediaCard Association (MMCA) – which counts Kingston, ATP, HP, and Samsung, among others as board members – is introducing a new memory card format.

They call it the Multiple-Interface Memory Card, or miCard, compatible with portable devices including digital cameras, smart phones, and PDAs. It includes a direct USB connector, so you don’t need an external card reader to use it.

The initial specs are quite impressive: transfer rate of 480Mbit/sec, capacities up to 8GB, and they plan to ramp it up to 2048GB. Yes, that’s right, two-thousand gigabytes or two terabytes. On a tiny tiny card?

Reports say the new card format is already being supported by A-Data Technology Inc., Asustek Computer Inc., BenQ Corp., Carry Computer Eng. Co., C-One Technology Corp., DBTel Inc., Power Digital Card Co. and RiChip Inc.
