Toshiba’s new Wi-Fi enabled memory card sends pics to other cards, uploads to the web

Posted in Memory by Conner Flynn on June 24th, 2010

Toshiba has a new SD card standard that integrates Wi-Fi with data storage. The “Standard Promotion Forum for Memory Cards Embedding Wireless LAN” has been founded by Toshiba and Singapore-based Trek 2000 International Ltd. The Eye-Fi has been around for a while, so this isn’t entirely new.

This card can connect with another one like it to exchange files, like over Bluetooth. They can also upload directly onto the web. The new card is compliant with the SD memory card standard, supports IEEE 802.11b/g and has an 8-gigabyte capacity.

New Lexar DDR3 memory literally lights up computers

Posted in Memory by Nino Marchetti on October 7th, 2008

Lexar Ballistix Tracer

Computer memory manufacturer Lexar Media is betting you might want to add a little extra something to those boring DDR3 memory modules – lights. The company announced today its Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333MHz) modules in 1GB and 2GB sizes.

The Ballistix Tracer modules come equipped with “activity-indicating Light-Emitting Diodes (LED).” They “are illuminated in a random pattern based on memory activity, highlighting the system memory and allowing users to visually see how intensely the memory is working.” Performance enthusiasts, case modders and do-it-yourself users are among those expected to take these up.

Memristor eliminates the need for RAM

Posted in Memory by Conner Flynn on April 30th, 2008

Memristor eliminates the need for RAM
Some Hewlett Packard scientists have come up with a new type of memory that is being hailed as a huge breakthrough. It’s a circuitry component called memristor, which allows data to be stored in circuitry even after the power is switched off. If all of the bugs can be worked out, the technology has massive potential. It could include benefits like computers that power up instantly, cell phones that go much longer without a charge and data loss in the case of power failures or battery death could be a thing of the past.

The memristor reside in the circuitry rather than be a separate memory module. That model allows PC builders to save valuable space. It could also lead to smaller systems that are much more powerful.

Kingston Ricky Martin microSD card feels disturbing

Posted in Memory by Nino Marchetti on April 1st, 2008

ricky-kingston.jpgKingston Technology is trying to connect with God knows which demographic by announcing today a microSD memory card preloaded with Ricky Martin material. You’ll find the Kingston 1GB microSD card with an accompanying USB reader kit available for around $11.

Now we really don’t have anything against Ricky Martin, but come on Kingston. This is a pretty lame promotion. If you must buy into it however you’ll find the 1GB microSD card loaded with Martin items like the tracks “Somos la Semilla,” “Tu Recuerdo,” concert images and a music video that opened his “Black & White” world tour.

Phase change memory from Numonyx within sight

Posted in Memory by Darrin Olson on March 31st, 2008

Numonyx Phase Change Memory (PCM) could be coming yet this yearAccording to an announcement by Numonyx CEO Brian Harrison, the company is expecting to have phase change memory (PCM) commercially available and start shipping this year. PCM is a new type of memory that would be in competition with Flash memory and has been in the works for decades but has yet to see commercialization.

Numonyx is a joint venture between STMicroelectronics and Intel and appears to be the first to announce a real-sounding time line for this type of memory. A number of companies have been working on phase change memory including an announcement from IBM in late 2006. Harrison says they are shipping samples now and will have the new memory widely commercially available in the next year or two.

SanDisk ups microSDHC capacity to 12GB

Posted in CES 2008,Memory,SanDisk by Nino Marchetti on January 8th, 2008

sandisk-12gbmicrosdhc.jpgSanDisk has announced from the CES floor it has begun to provide samples of a 12GB microSDHC memory card to phone manufacturers for testing and evaluation. This 12GB capacity marks what SanDisk says is the world’s largest for mobile phone storage.

A 12GB microSDHC card represents around a 50 percent boost in storage capacity over SanDisk’s current 8GB card. The card reportedly can hold, for example, a combination of 1,500 songs, 3,600 photos and 24.5 hours of video.

OCZ ReaperX HTC dissipates heat with new pipes

Posted in Memory by Reuben Drake on November 11th, 2007

OCZ ReaperX HPC heat pip conduit memoryOCZ has a new memory module designed to take on the latest in games and memory-intensive multimedia programs providing increased memory stability due to these relatively large, wicked looking pipes coming out of it to help dissipate heat. The company is calling it the ReaperX HPC (heat pipe conduit) and it comes in capacities of 2GB and 4GB.

This new design has the conduit touching each individual chip according to the company, unlike previous models of the Reapers which didn’t actually come in contact with the chips. When we see these types of memory modules we always have to wonder however, just how much of it is built for actual functionality and how much is for show. The ReaperX HTC is rated at DDR2-800 with 4-4-3 timings and have Enhanced Performance Profiles built-in which make them compatible with the latest generation of NVIDIA SLI chipsets.
