Allowing users to capture full HD videos and high-resolution photos at an affordable price, Kingston Digital Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company Inc., has introduced a new SDXC Class 10 memory card.

These cards utilize speed class ratings to provide a minimum data transfer rate of 10MB/s for optimum performance with SDHC/SDXC devices, created to cater to the increasing storage demands of smartphones, tablets and high-quality still and video cameras.

Kingston’s Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) Class 10 card works with the exFAT file system, created to handle large volumes of data, such as files bigger than 4GB. The product is fully compatible with the latest SD Association (News - Alert) specification.

Available in 64GB and 128GB, these cards are ideal for catering to the storage demands of high-quality digital still and video cameras, as well as other personal electronic devices that are SDXC compatible.

“It is important to note that although SDXC cards are identical in size to standard SD cards, they have a different design and are only recognized by SDXC host devices,” said Andrew Ewing, Flash memory business manager, Kingston. “Consumers need to make sure that their camera or camcorder carries the SDXC logo to ensure compatibility and make the most of the new, huge capacity options.”

Recently, the company announced the SSDNow E100 SSD, the company's new enterprise-class solid state drive (SSD). The new drive allows users to accommodate the performance demands needed in support of big data and virtualization initiatives. While reducing the physical footprint, as significantly fewer SSDs are needed to handle the tasks of many traditional hard-disk drives (HDD), the new Kingston E100 SSD gets up to 10X improvements in endurance and reliability over client SSDs on existing hardware.
