Ultra High Speed-1 MicroSD Cards for Advanced LTE Smartphones and Tablets
Samsung Electronics announced recently that it is now mass producing Ultra High Speed–1 (UHS-1) interface microSD cards that support the highest performance levels required on advanced LTE (Long Term Evolution) smartphones and tablets.
The new UHS-1 memory card comes in a 16 gigabyte (GB) density. It is comprised of Samsung’s 20 nanometer-class 64 gigabit (Gb) toggle DDR 2.0 devices and an advanced Samsung controller supporting the ultra fast UHS-1 interface.
According to internal tests, the new 16GB UHS-1 microSD card has a maximum sequential read speed of 80 megabytes per second (MB/s). This is more than four times the read speed of today’s advanced microSD cards, which operate at 21MB/s.
Initiating production of the 16GB UHS-1 microSD cards began late last month. In the future, Samsung plans to expand its microSD card offerings with higher density solutions that reinforce its position as the leading market innovator for NAND flash.
