SDXC Standard

Massive Storage, Incredible Speed

The SDXC standard, the latest SD memory card standard, dramatically improves consumers’ digital lifestyles by increasing storage capacity from more than 32 GB up to 2 TB. Its exFAT file system handles large volumes of data. The standards for increasing bus interface speeds up to 104 MB per second for UHS-and up to 312 MB per second for UHS-II, as well as UHS Speed Class, are available for SDXC memory cards and devices. SDXC's extended capacity will provide more portable storage and offer greater speeds required to support new features in consumer electronic devices, mobile devices and industrial devices. It also gives consumers a valuable easy upgrade option, allowing them to add capacity as needed vs. replacing devices and creating more consumer electronic waste. As a product developer, this gives you more options to determine the amount of storage required for each product and create more product options.
