The memory card specification competition has raged since the advent of digital cameras up to present-day mobile phone devices. But by 2007, a uniform standard may be in the works, with microSD for mobile phones dominating the entire card-slot mobile phone user market! What makes microSD so attractive that it has mobile phone makers going all out to launch corresponding mobile phones? The answer is space efficiency. microSD is currently the world’s smallest memory card and this gives mobile phone designers more space to fit in other components without having to worry about the slot for memory card. In addition, when fitted to an adapter, microSD may be used on all devices supporting miniSD and SD memory card respectively, making it a multipurpose card. For this reason, microSD is poised for explosive growth in the entire mobile phone storage market in 2007!

Semiconductor packaging/stacking technology is the future competitive edge

Even as microSD becomes the mainstream specification for the storage market, it has many memory card makers racking their brains because the microSD card is so small that you could not use the conventional SMT method to produce it! Instead, the more advanced semiconductor packaging technology COB (chip on board) has to be adopted. Only manufacturers like Kingmax, who are capable of vertical integration and are equipped with proprietary worldwide patented technologies, such as semiconductor packaging and high-capacity stacking, are able to offer “timely” and “stable” supply. Production capacity and the ability to supply on time will also be completely restricted if production is outsourced to suppliers equipped with semiconductor packaging technology.

The advent of high-capacity memory card market

Advances in digital technology as well as the launch of the 3G system have contributed many hitherto unimaginable powerful functions to mobile phone products. The mobile phone seemingly embodies all of human recreation and entertainment, including wireless Internet connection, MP3, TV, movie and game. However, the serious problem that arose as a result is the storage requirement for massive data; otherwise, having a powerful device or sophisticated functions would be meaningless. Kingmax has continuously striven to provide the best solution in storage technology. Years ago, Kingmax launched the world’s smallest microSD for mobile phones based on its proprietary patented PIP packaging. Since then, the increase in capacity has been unstoppable. Following closely on the heels of the launch of 1GB microSD, KiNGDISK Series 2GB microSD – the world’s highest capacity microSD, was debuted. In the future, even higher capacity microSD may be anticipated. Kingmax’s proprietary PIP-packaged microSD is waterproof and dustproof, ensuring the full protection of precious data inside the memory card. In addition, stringent manufacturing quality enables optimal compatibility, allowing you to easily use it on any mobile phone that supports microSD.

Are you still using low-capacity microSD? Check out the latest KiNGDISK 2GB microSD for mobile phones! With 2GB, it can store nearly 570 MP3 songs and 5000 photos, and play MP4 high-definition videos for 12 hours non-stop. If you have an enormous appetite for digital mobile audio/video storage, you know this is the memory card to have. With KiNGDISK Series 2GB microSD, you will never want to go anywhere without your mobile phone!
