Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has begun mass-production of the smallest memory card available for mobile phones. The MMCmicro device can read data at 10MBps (megabytes per second) and write at 7MBps, which is 3.5 times faster than that of competing flash memory cards.

The new thumbnail-sized memory card, designed specifically for mobile phones with advanced multimedia features, is one-third as large (12x14x1.1mm) as the reduced size multimedia card (RS-MMC) available today and can support four NAND flash memory chips, enabling higher performance.

The high-capacity, low-power MMCmicro line represents the next-generation in flash memory cards, and Samsung officials expect many mobile phone makers to adopt the format. The cards are already available with Samsung's latest mobile phones, including its five-megapixel and seven-megapixel camera phones. In addition, the company is working on standardizing the "MMCmicro" memory card with the mltimedia card association (MMCA).
