Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. (TAEC) and its parent, Toshiba Corp., has announced a new microSD card family for use in cellular telephones, with initial capacities of 256Mbytes, 512Mbytes and 1GByte.

The microSD card, with approximately one-fourth the cubic measure of a miniSD memory card, is touted to be the smallest memory card available worldwide. Its primary application is in cellular telephones equipped with music playback and camera functionality. The microSD card is intended for use in handsets equipped with microSD slots to enable transfer and storage of music and digital photos, although it can also be used with an adapter in standard SD memory card slots.

The microSD cards measure 11-by-15-by-1mm and weighs approximately 0.4g. They have a power supply voltage of 2.7-3.6V. The microSD memory cards are part of Toshiba's SD memory card family, which includes the miniSD and SDHC cards. The entire SD card line features cryptographic security, protection of copyrighted data, high-data transfer rate for fast copy/download and high storage capacity.

The 256- and 512Mbytes versions, SD-C256 and SD-C512, respectively, were scheduled for availability this July, while the 1Gbyte version, the SD-C01G, will be available in August.
