SanDisk SD Standard Memory Card Knowledge Base

Sandisk LogoIn 1988, Sanjay Mehrotra and Eli Harari, non-volatile memory engineering experts, founded SanDisk. SanDisk manufactures numerous flash memory types, including assorted memory cards and an array of removable USB drives.

SD (Secure Digital) is a nonvolatile flash memory card (a type of solid-state container) extensively used in portable devices, like digital cameras,, mobile phones, tablet computers, GPS navigation devices, and handheld consoles.

In August 1999, the Secure Digital standard (SD) was announced as an evolutionary progression over MultiMediaCards (MMC). The SDA (SD Association) administers the Secure Digital standard. SD technetronics' have been executed in over 400 brands encompassing dozens of device categories featuring over 8,000 models

The Secure Digital format encompasses four card families which come in four unique form factors. These four families include the original SDSC (Standard-Capacity, SDHC (High-Capacity), SDXC (eXtended-Capacity), SDHC/SDXC UHS (Ultra High Speed) plus the SDIO, which blends data storage with input/output functions. These three form factors include the original size card, the mini size card, and the micro card size. There are electrically passive adapters which allow a smaller size card to adapt and function within a device manufactured for a larger size card.

There are numerous combinations of device and form factor families, however as of 2014, the predominant formats are full, micro SDHC along with full and micro SDXC.
