ATP Announces Highest Capacity 512MB Dual Voltage RS-MMC(DV RS-MMC) Flash Cards. x8 Expansion of Data Storage Capability of Mobile Phones(Nokia 6630, 6680,6681, and 6682)

ATP Electronics Inc., a leading manufacturer of digital flash media products, today announced that it is beginning mass production of the world’s first 512MB dual voltage RS-MMC (DV RS-MMC). This follows ATP’s announcement in early February of 256/128MB DV RS-MMC product availability. The dual voltage (DV) feature allows for compatibility with devices running on the conventional 3.0V as well as with the dual voltage 3.0/1.8V devices. The low voltage feature translates to much lower power consumption, meaning a longer battery life for mobile digital devices of both today and tomorrow.

Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2005 -- The highest capacity 512MB DV RS-MMC card expands the storage capacity 8-fold, thus allowing for 8 times the amount of video, music, photos, games, and ringtones on new mobile phones which either require or can use dual voltage memory cards such as Nokia smartphones 6630, 6680, 6681, 6682 models.

"Today these Nokia handsets and other digital mobile devices requiring dual voltage (DV) RS-MMC typically come bundled with a 64MB DV RS-MMC card. This poses a huge limitation on the amount of digital content a user can store. By offering such a high capacity 512MB card solution, ATP enables users to fully utilize the handsets' multimedia functions and feature sets, allowing for the enhanced ability to store and play video, music and games", said Danny Lin, ATP VP of Sales and Marketing.

ATP’s new DV RS-MMC memory cards offer the same advanced features as ATP’s other flash card products offering ample protection from water, dust, ESD (electro-static discharge), and extreme temperatures ranging from –40C to 85C. This allows for versatility and durability rarely found today in flash memory cards. The 512MB DV RS-MMC product is available immediately. 256MB and 128MB DV RS-MMC cards are also currently available.
