Why microSD Express Memory Cards Rule: The Many Advantages of the PCIe and NVMe Standards

Published: 25 March 2019

Article written by Yosi Pinto, Chairman of the SD Association.

The latest version of the popular microSD form factor brings SSD levels of performance, creating a host of new opportunities for memory card users.

In the nearly two decades since the SD Association (SDA) introduced its first memory cards, SD and microSD memory cards have cycled through numerous evolutions and industry trends.

Now, the microSD Express memory card takes a giant step forward by giving the microSD form factor PCIe® and NVMe™ capabilities alongside the legacy SD interface.

What’s the difference between one memory card and another? The need for speed!

Published: 18 March 2019

Choosing the right memory card for your application can be the difference between success and failure. Size, format, read/write speeds, storage capacity, operating environment, reliability, performance, longevity, brand and price, are all considerations.
