Toshiba announced that their upcoming Exceria Pro microSD memory cards have gained the new A1 Application Performance label. The A1 classification is defined in the latest SD Association card specification 5.1, and
specifies minimum requirements to store and run mobile apps directly from the memory card.
Toshiba EXCERIA PRO microSDHC/microSDXC M402 memory cards are compatible with latest SDA A1 Application Performance specification, bringing great user experiences when using the card in a smartphone. The specification requires at least 1500 random read IOPS (Input-Output access Per Second), 500 random write IOPS and sustained sequential performance of 10MB/s. While that doesn’t sound like a lot in desktop storage terms, it should be sufficient for mobiles to run the apps without delays.
The cards can bring mobile users the speed needed to keep up with the many demands placed on their devices, while also providing storage of pictures, HD videos, music, documents and other data. The new cards will reach stores in Q2 2017 and feature densities of 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB.
That could allow you to store approximately 30,500 high-quality pictures or 1900 minutes of high-quality video in a safe way. The cards are also shock resistant confirmed by 5-metre drop test, water resistant up to IPX7, and
X-ray resistant up to ISO7816-1 specifications.
As for the rest of the specifications, the cards are already UHS Speed Class U3 compatible with read and write speeds up to 95MB/s. The EXCERIA PRO M402 cards are also backed by a five-year standard limited warranty and include a data-recovery software coupon.
