The SD Association has published the specifications for a new memory card format which could deliver mobile phones with a massive 2 Terabyte memory capacity. The next-generation SDXC (eXtended Capacity) memory card specification also accelerates SD interface read/write speeds to 104 megabytes per second this year, with a road map to 300 megabytes per second.

Specifications for the open standard will be released in the first quarter of 2009. SDXC combines a higher capacity roadmap with faster transfer speeds as a means to exploit NAND flash memory technology as a compelling choice for portable memory storage and interoperability, said Joseph Unsworth, research director, NAND Flash Semiconductors, at Gartner.With industry support, SDXC presents manufacturers with the opportunity to kindle consumer demand for more advanced handset features and functionality in consumer electronics behind the ubiquitous SD interface.

At its maximum 2TB capacity, an SDXC memory card will store an estimated 100 HD movies, 480 hours of HD recording or 136,000 fine-mode photos.SDXC is also the first memory card specification to provide 2TB storage without hindering the high-speed performance necessary for high-end photography. It will provide maximum speeds even when the SDXC specification achieves its maximum 2TB storage capacity.
