Toshiba today announced that it will launch a new line of high performance SDXC and SDHC memory cards under a new brand name, EXCERIA, that will bring to market SD memory cards offering the highest performance levels available. EXCERIA offers cards compliant with the SD Memory Card Standard Ver.3.0 UHS-I, and includes versions offering the world-fastest class data transfer speed. The new products will be launched from April in Japan, with distinctive labeling.
The SD memory card has emerged as the data storage card of choice in all kinds of personal digital equipment. As the performance of digital equipment has advanced, SD memory cards offering faster data transfer speeds are necessary to support such functions as recording HD movies, continuous image shooting with digital camera and short transfer times when copying data to other devices.

The minimum recording speed is compliant with UHS speed class 1 and SD speed class 10. Products will be launched in three series, EXCERIA Type 1, Type 2 and Type HD, each offering three versions with different capacities.
