Transcend debuts new SuperMLC microSD memory cards
Transcend has announced the release of a new line of microSD memory cards. They come with industrial-grade characteristics and feature SuperMLC technology, which makes them a cost-effective solution with performance close to that of SLC NAND flash memory. The memory cards have been designed for medical devices, POS terminals and surveillance systems and that’s why they feature high performance, excellent reliability and wide temperature tolerance – they can work at temperatures between -40°C and +85°C.
The new cards feature transfer speeds that can reach up to 95 MB/sec, which is double the speed of MLC flash chips. In addition to this the cards can sustain up to 30 000 P/E cycles, which makes them ten times more durable than MLC NAND flash chips. Moreover, they come with Advanced Error Correcting Code (ECC) and S.M.A.R.T. functionality, which ensure better reliability and self-monitoring capabilities for optimum performance and protection. The new cards are available in 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB capacities and come with a 2-year warranty.
