The SanDisk Ultra® II SD Cards are much faster than conventional storage media when transferring large files. They achieve a continuous write speed of at least 9 MB per second and a read speed of 10 MB per second.

They are ideal for the special needs of professional digital photography, since photos taken with high-value cameras need a high speed storage medium

Ultra II SD Cards are also the best choice for storing programs and data for Pocket PCs and PDAs, such as navigation software. They can significantly speed up working with large files such as maps.


What are SD Cards?

The SD Card is now the most popular memory card format.

It is a further development of the MultiMediaCard and has additional functions such as data encryption and a write protect switch.

The SD Card (32 x 24 x 2.1 mm) has the same footprint as the MultiMediaCard (1.4 mm height) but is 0.7 mm thicker and has 9 pins instead of 7 and a theoretical data rate which is four times faster.

It uses the same flash technology as CompactFlash and PC Cards, but the data is transferred serially rather than the parallel data transfer used by the ATA protocol.

The memory media is the size of a postage stamp and the cards are used both in industrial applications and in consumer devices – especially as a memory expansion for compact digital cameras or PDAs respectively Pocket PCs.

A PC Card Adapter which was developed by altec allows MultiMediaCards to be used in any PC Card Type II slot, such as that found in nearly all notebook PCs and altec Flash Card drives.

The SD High Capacity Cards Ultra II with 4 and 8 GB capacity are not downwards compatible to the existing SD Cards. The new SDHC memory media fits into standard SD Card slots but applications as card reader or digital cameras explicitly need to be compatible with the cards.
