Message Text: SanDisk and Sony today announ

"Memory Stick format for Extended High Capacity (Tentative name)" expands the "Memory Stick PRO" format series to achieve a maximum storage capacity of 2-terabytes (TB), while the "Memory Stick HG Micro" format enables a maximum data-transfer speed of 60 megabytes per second (MB/s). Format licensing corresponding to the "Memory Stick format for Extended High Capacity" and the "Memory Stick HG Micro" is scheduled to start in 2009.

The new "Memory Stick Format for Extended High Capacity" format enables the recording of up to 2TB of data, which is 60 times more storage capacity than the "Memory Stick PRO" format's 32-gigabyte (GB) capacity limit.

By this format expansion, "Memory Stick PRO Format for Extended High Capacity" shatters the terabyte mark for data storage, opening the door for wider applications. This new format is scheduled to continue to support the "MagicGate" copyright protection technology as well as the "Access Control Function"

In addition, SanDisk and Sony today announced the joint development of "Memory Stick HG Micro", a format expanded from "Memory Stick Micro" (M2). This new format adopts an enhanced 8-bit parallel interface and features an increased interface clock frequency of 60 mega hertz (MHz), enabling 60MB/s (480 Mbps in theoretical value) maximum data transfer speed. This is three times faster than the conventional serial 4-bit parallel interface and 40MHz interface clock frequency adopted in the "Memory Stick Micro", offering data-transfer speeds of the "Memory Stick PRO-HG" on a micro-size memory card.
