CeBIT 2005: PRETEC C-Flash the smallest again
At CeBIT 2005 Pretec introduced the new flash card pretending to be the smallest of all. With dimensions of 17x12x1mm C-Flash is even smaller than RS-MMC or miniSD.
C-Flash supports smart cards and SIM modules; MMC/SD and USB interfaces. The list of chip vendors include Samsung, Micron, Renesas and Toshiba.
Moreover, the press release states that C-Flash is ready to support the MU-Card specs, a young standard from Mu-Card Alliance that is, in turn, a part of OMIA (Open Mobile Internet Alliance). Mu-Card can theoretically offer capacities up to 2,048 GB up to 120MB/s read/write performance.
At the moment 128MB C-Flash cards are sampling. 1GB products are to arrive in Q2 this year, and the volume shipments are scheduled to Q3 2005.
