November 18, 2004 — The Taiwan-based Transcend Information Inc. announced the world’s largest MultiMediaCard on Tuesday. The 1GB card weighs 2 grams and measures 32 x 24 x 1.4mm. The card was designed for use in digital cameras, cell phones, audio players and PDAs. Image files, MP3s, and video clips can be stores on the new card.

Transcend uses Single-Level-Cell NAND Flash chip technology that allows the card to read and write at a speed of 2MB per second. The card claims to use less power and have more durability than cards with Multi-Level-Cell technology. Industry leader Sandisk, which released new Memory Sticks last month and new industrial SD cards this month, uses the MLC technology.
