Convenient and Portable,
SD Standards Make it Easy to Capture Special Moments

SD standards ensure you're ready to capture memories and relive them anytime and anywhere. Whether you are taking digital photos during a weekend getaway, listening to new music on your tablet, or recording your child's first steps on your smart phone, SD standards ensure your electronic products deliver their best performance.

In fact, SD memory cards allow you to upgrade your existing devices instead of replacing them for more storage capacity and features, saving you money and reducing electronic waste. If you have a mobile phone, digital camera, tablet, computer, printer, car navigation system, electronic book, or almost any other consumer electronic device, it is likely built on SD standards. SD standards are used by hundreds of brands in thousands of device models.

SD memory cards are designed to SD capacity and speed standards that correspond to your devices' abilities to record and share video, photos and sound. The SD Association provides a convenient classification system to communicate usage and features to help you select the best card for your device. The SD Family includes standards for storage capacity and read/write speed.
