SanDisk, Sony And Nikon Propose Industry Standards For Next Generation High Speed Memory Card Format

With image and video quality improvements bringing about larger file sizes, it’s no surprise to hear that SanDisk, Sony, and Nikon are proposing a new memory card format that ditches the PATA interface in favor of the PCI Express serial interface, allowing cards to achieve data transfer rates of up to 500MB/s and allowing the maximum storage capacity to go beyond 2TB. This would go a long way to support DSLRs and camcorders which are updated to capture continuous burst shooting of massive RAW images and high-definition video. The specifications combine high-speed data transfer with low power consumption via a power scaling system designed to extend battery life.
