    Corsair, today expanded its Secure Digital(SD) card family with the new 4GB SD High Capacity (SDHC) cards. Based on the SD Association 2.0 specification and tested to be fully compliant with SDHC host devices, each Corsair 4GB SDHC card blends Class 2 performance and high capacity to offer expanded storage for rich digital media. The SDHC form factor addresses the growing usage of larger capacities supported by high performance digital cameras, digital camcorders and other handheld devices used to record high definition digital content. While the maximum capacity for a standard SD card is capped at 2GB, the new SDHC standard extends storage capacity from 4GB to 32GB.

    Identical in size to today's standard SD cards, SDHC cards will work only with SDHC compatible host devices. End consumers are encouraged to look for the SDHC logo to ensure compatibility. Manufacturers currently offering SDHC compatible devices include Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Casio, Pentax, Sanyo and Palm, with available host devices ranging from digital camera, digital camcorders to smart phones. In Corsair lab tests, a 4GB SDHC card can store up to 19 hours of high definition MPEG 4 movies or 1000 MP3 songs. The new SDHC standard brings a unified speed rating system defined by the SD Association, where three speed classes (Class 2, 4 and 6) bring guaranteed minimum sustained transfer rates for optimal performance.

    "We see a growing trend of availability and affordability of high performance digital recording devices. This means more consumers are going to demand storage larger than 2GB in order to record and store rich media content. The new SDHC format addresses this unique need by blending both the small footprint of SD and the technology to integrate maximum storage density," said Dan Le, Senior Director of Applications Engineering at Corsair.

    Product Features
    • Small foot print size: 24 x 32mm
    • High speed Class 2 data transfer
    • User friendly design: Write-protect switch to prevent accidental data loss
    • Ultra-low power consumption for extended battery life
    • Performance promise: Each card is bundled with a USB 2.0 card reader capable of supporting the high read/write speed
    • Life time warranty

    The Corsair part number for the new 4GB SDHC is CMFSDHC-4GB. Backed with Corsair's legendary quality and ondemand customer support, the new 4GB SDHC card is currently available through Corsair's authorized distributors, resellers, retailers and e-tailers worldwide. The introduction MSRP of the 4GB SDHC card is $59 USD. Each card is bundled with a high-speed USB 2.0 SDHC reader. For more information, please visit http://www.corsair.com/corsair/flash_memory.html.
