Since the official introduction of SDHC by the SD Card Association (SDA),Kingmax has been actively preparing for the new-generation specification (Ver. 2.0) SD card - Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) memory card.
With the current demand for massive data storage and the growing number of application products (e.g. DV camcorders, DSLR and consumer digital cameras) starting to support the new-generation SDHC specification, Kingmax's SDHC will be primarily targeted at the digital camera and DV camcorder user market in order to meet the multimedia storage requirements of a wide range of consumers.
In comparison to Ver.1.1, Kingmax's new-generation SDHC memory card has more stringent access and electrical specifications, to ensure complete compatibility with all products that support the SDHC specification. In addition, the Ver.2.0 SDHC card has a capacity ranging from 4GB to 32GB, fully meeting the massive capacity requirement for high-quality image and music data storage now and in the future. The SDHC cards are given speed class ratings for their minimum sustained write speed, i.e. Class 2 for 2MB/sec, Class 4 for 4MB/sec and Class 6 for 6MB/sec, which are an improvement over Ver.1.1, ensuring uninterrupted recording and playback of high-resolution images. In the future, the drop in production costs for SDHC memory card could very well make current storage media, such as VCD, DVD and hard disk drives, obsolete.
Kingmax's outstanding manufacturing technology, and selected high-specification storage chip and control modules, ensure the superb quality and performance of each SDHC memory card. An SDHC memory card may be the size of a stamp but its high capacity allows you to store thousands of songs, video clips and animation from the Internet, and photos that record those precious moments in life.
