MMCmicro — a new miniature flash card from Samsung

Samsung developed another flash card "the most miniature in its class". Like similar flash media, MMCmicro is made considering low energy consumption, longer battery life and higher capacity. Naturally, it´s designed for mobile handsets and other portable devices.

MMCmicro is sized 12x14x1.1 mm. It´s by 2/3 smaller than the size of RS-MMC. Voltage ranges from 1.8 to 3.3 V. As for the performance, it´s 10 MB/s for reading and 7 MB/s for writing. Initially capacities will be 32, 64 and 128 MB, though theoretically company claims up to 5 NAND flash chips can be packed into a single card. The volume production is scheduled to early 2005.

So, Samsung still prefers MMC format, the annual demand for which, according to Gartner, will make 61% up to 2007. At the moment the Korean company offers RS-MMC and MMCmobile for mobile handsets as well as MMC and MMCplus for digital cameras.
