(Reporter Kim Do Hyun, Digital Daily) Samsung Electronics has launched a new product in the NAND flash memory sector. This is a direction in which it is necessary to focus on a different area than before, in the face of a protracted downturn in the manufacturing industry.
On the 29th, Samsung Electronics announced that it will release a new SD (Secure Digital) card and micro SD card with enhanced speed and stability PRO Ultimate.
This product group is a memory card, which is the optimal solution for professional photographers and authors. It is said to provide consistent performance not only for handling high-capacity content smoothly, but also for repetitive read, write, and erase operations.
This family of products delivers read speeds of up to 200 megabytes per second (MB/s) and write speeds of 130 MB/s, meeting the highest level of UHS-I (Ultra High Speed) standards. This is the level that a 1.3 gigabyte (GB) movie can transfer in 11.2 seconds.
It maintains stable read and write speed regardless of capacity. For reference: UHS-I is a memory card standard introduced by the SD Association to denote high file and video data transfer rates.
In the case of a micro SD card, class A2 is separately supported for uninterrupted support for continuous reading, writing and multitasking. A2 is the standard for arbitrary read and write speed of memory cards.
Samsung Electronics has improved reliability by strengthening the ECC (Error Correction Code) mechanism of the controller in this product line. LDPC (Low Density Parity Check), an ECC type, has been upgraded from the existing 1 kilobyte (KB) to 2 KB so that consumers can use it longer without worrying about data loss.
In addition, data is well protected under extreme environmental conditions such as waterproofing, drops, abrasion, X-rays, magnetic fields and temperature changes. The SD card can withstand impact up to 1500 grams (g).
Samsung Electronics has applied a 28-nano controller to this line, improving energy efficiency by up to 37% compared to the previous one. As a result, consumers are expected to be able to use the device for extended periods of time without having to recharge frequently.
