Toshiba to launch CompactFlash memory card for DSLR Market

Toshiba and Toshiba Electronics Europe are to launch a new line of high performance CompactFlash memory cards for the DSLR camera market.

Under the brand name, EXCERIA PRO, these cards will offer the world’s highest level read and write speed, claims Toshiba.

The line-up, which will comprise 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities, will be launched in spring 2013.

The new products integrate Toshiba’s high-performance NAND flash memory and specially developed firmware to achieve a read speed of 160MB/s and write speed of 150MB/s, said to be the highest level yet reported.

Toshiba’s cards adhere to the Compact Flash Association (CFA) standard CompactFlash Specification Revision 6.0 and are compatible with the UDMA7 high-speed interface specification.

This enables the new products to maximize the full performance of high-end DSLRs.

Furthermore, the new cards are compatible with the latest VPG (Video Performance Guarantee) standard VPG-20 specification. VPG-20 supports Full HD video capture streams at minimum write speeds of 20MB/s for compatible host devices and recording media and enables high-quality Full HD video capture at high frame rates with no dropped frames.

The need for fast memory cards for DSLRs is increasing in order to handle higher resolution images, sustained continuous shooting, HD video recording, and high speed data transfer between various devices.
