KIOXIA announced that it has started mass production of the 2 terabyte (TB) microSDXC memory card, a breakthrough for smartphone owners, content creators and on-the-go gamers. With enhanced performance and capacity, EXCERIA PLUS G2 2TB microSDXC memory cards are here to put less limits on what users can record and store.
By leveraging proprietary manufacturing technology including its innovative BiCS FLASH? 3D flash memory and an in-house designed controller, KIOXIA has successfully manufactured a 2TB microSDXC UHS-I memory card. Though the SD Association's SDXC specification has supported memory cards up to 2TB for over a decade, KIOXIA accomplished this challenge by stacking sixteen 1 terabit dies of 3D flash memory while maintaining the specification’s maximum thickness of 0.8 mm.
With read speed up to 100 MB/s and write speed up to 90 MB/s, EXCERIA PLUS G2 2TB microSDXC memory cards meet UHS Speed Class 3 (U3), Application Class 1 (A1) and Video Speed Class 30 (V30).
The 2TB capacity allows users to record over 41 hours of video (100Mbps), making them suited for high-capacity data recording applications like action cameras.
"These new, enhanced cards can become a sought-after option by many smartphone owners, content creators, dashcam and video bloggers, and on-the-go gamers alike," says Jamie Stitt, General Manager B2C Sales & Marketing, KIOXIA Europe GmbH. "We are pleased to offer extra performance and capacity through these new EXCERIA PLUS G2 2TB microSDXC cards."
Market introduction of EXCERIA PLUS G2 2TB microSDXC memory cards is scheduled to begin in the coming quarter.
