Toshiba has launched a series  of eMMC based flash memory cards in various storage capacities. The new eMMC (embedded multimedia memory card) 5.1 flash memory comes in 16 GB, 32 GB , 64 GB and 128 GB storage capacities. These cards can be used in a wide variety of devices like smartphones, tablets and other wearable devices to store media and other content.


These new flash memory cards brings on board a new technology known as “Command Queuing”. Command queuing means that a number of tasks can be queued in a line and then performed based on user’s preference. This will give the data transfer technology a new breath of life. Apart from command queuing another new feature introduced by Toshiba with these cards is Secure Write protection feature which means that the data will be protected against accidental deletion. Secure Write function stores the sensitive and confidential data transferred onto the card by saving it in preassigned secure locations and protecting it against the deletion by unauthorized users. Toshiba promises that these new cards will deliver awesome performance and faster transfer speeds as compared to existing storage cards out there.

Toshiba has used company’s own 15nm second generation process technology in these new flash memory cards. The 16 GB and 32 GB storage cards are available for purchase. Toshiba has planned to make the other two cards i.e. 64 GB and 128 GB storage cards available sometime in Q2. With the launch of these cards Toshiba is looking to revolutionize the storage industry. As we can guess eMMC based flash memory cards are going to be the latest trend.
