Panasonic Announces Waterproof, Magnetic & Heat Resistant micro SDHC Memory Cards
Panasonic has announced a new line of micro SDHC memory card with 'six-proof' properties; the new cards are waterproof, possess static electrical resistance, magnetic resistance, X-ray resistance and heat resistance. The new cards also have a 'fuse' function which protect them from generating heat and fire if the micro SDHC memory card somehow overheats.
The four new cards use MLC (multi-level cell) NAND flash memory chips, and with the new UHS-I (Ultra High Speed-I) standard, boast a top read speed of 45 MB/s, with a top writing speed of 25 MB/s. Compared to the SDXC format, SDHC cards can support up to 32GB of memory, compared to 2TB for SDXC memory cards.
The new 'six-proof' micro SDHC cards from Panasonic have an official availability date of July 13th, 2013.
