Toshiba Electronics To Showcase Ultrafast SD Cards, SSDs and next-generation SSHDs
Demonstrations showcase Toshiba technologies for fast data storage, access and wireless transfer
Düsseldorf, Germany, 19th August 2013 – Toshiba Electronics Europe will showcase its latest memory and data storage products at IFA 2013 (Hall 21a) alongside Toshiba’s full-line of consumer electronics range of HD and 3D TVs, tablets, laptops and ultrabooks. Highlights will include ultra high-speed SD cards, high-speed SD cards with integrated Wi-Fi capability, high-speed USB3.0 memory sticks, high performance solid-state drives (SSDs) and next-generation solid-state hybrid drives (SSHDs).
The EXCERIA PROTM UHSII SD cards boast the world’s fastest write speeds of 240MB/s, enable continuous high speed digital image capture and remove the bottlenecks caused when photographers take bursts of still images.
Toshiba’s FlashAirTM SDHC cards were the first to incorporate embedded wireless LAN functionality into an SD card and support peer-to-peer transfers. The new 16GB FlashAirTM not only doubles the capacity of the cards, it also enables easy and flexible sharing of photos, increased data transfer speeds that reduce data transfer time by 30 per cent. Data on the cards is also accessible from mobile devices running both Android and iOS.
The THNSNH family of SSDs addresses the storage, performance and power efficiency demands of high-end notebooks, tablets and PCs with capacities ranging from 60GB to 512GB. The next-generation SSHDs squeeze 8GiB of NAND storage and up to 500GB of HDD storage into a 2.5-inch (6.4 cm) form factor with 7.0mm height, ideal for high-performance and ultrathin notebooks, and slim line PCs.
Toshiba’s close proximity wireless data transfer TransferJetTM technology, compact flash cards, SD cards, and HD microSD cards will also be on display alongside HDDs (hard disc drives) for enterprise, industrial and automotive applications.
Editors and journalists visiting the booth are invited to request interviews with Toshiba Electronics Europe representatives and experts who will be happy to provide details about the latest additions to the memory and data storage product lines.

 One Gigabyte (1GB) means 109 = 1,000,000,000 bytes. One Terabyte (1TB) means 1012 = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1TB = 240 = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes, and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and other factors.
 One Gibibyte (GiB) = 1,073,741,824 (230) byte.
