Samsung introduces Dual Voltage MMC and Reduced-Size DV-MMC

Samsung Electronics introduced its new Dual Voltage MultiMediaCards (DV-MMC) with lower power consumption and are designed for new-generation mobile handsets, digital cameras, etc. Considering 80mA the standard power consumption, the new 1.8V and 3.3V cards require only 20mA for reading. But other specs seem to be usual: 1.8MB/s write, 24x32x1.4mm Dual Voltage MMC dimensions, 24x18x1.4mm RS-DV-MMC dimensions.

Mobile handset vendors will have been considering MMC and RS-MMC for their products, so now it seems they have another memory kind, DV-MMC. Samsung´s series includes 9 models of different capacities: 32, 64, 128, 256, 512 MB DV-MMC, 32, 64, 128, 256 MB Dual Voltage-Reduced Size-MMC (DV-RS-MMC).

Still it seems the company lags behind its competitors, as Hitachi introduced similar media in November 2002. However, considering Samsung had the first MMC cards on hands in mid-April 2003, the situation is not bad.
