Pretec 133X SD Released at PMA

Pretec has unveiled their 133X model secure digital card for high-speed transfers. The 133X card is capable of sustaining 20MB/sec transfer rates for use in high-speed digital cameras and other applications that require speed. Pretec ran tests and found that a full 1GB 133X SD Card full with 5MP high resolution digital images can be transferred in under 60 seconds, more than twice the speed of current high speed SD 60X (9MB/sec).

The Pretec SD 133X model will be available in 256MB, 512MB and 1GB capacities by Q2 of 2005.

PRETEC Announces 133X SD Card

(ORLANDO, Florida) PRETEC Electronics Corp., the leading company offering flash memory cards since 1993 is announcing today their 133X (20MB/sec.) secure digital (SD) card with capacities of 256MB, 512MB and 1GB at PMA (booth # 2025 & 2027) in Orlando.

Endowed with more than 2 times the access speed of current high speed SD 60X (9MB/sec), PRETEC SD 133X is now running at close to 20MB/sec allowing for a demanding new generation higher-resolution and higher-speed digital cameras and growing multimedia appliances. Implementing high speed flash algorithm controller design and “Dual Channel” technology, PRETEC SD 133X offers a 16-bit bus architecture for data transfer at an accelerated rate. Employing the same technology, PRETEC has created and demonstrated last month at CES (Las Vegas) iDisk Tiny 166X; the smallest and highest speed flash memory card in the world, using USB interface. PRETEC SD 133X is constructed with precision mechanics offering the most reliable and secure features which provide superior durability, water resistance, anti-vibration, high pressure resistance, and provides the ultimate level of data protection to prevent user’s crucial data from being damaged or lost during device power failure.

With available speed close to 20MB/sec., PRETEC 1GB 133X SD Card can transfer 1GB of 5MP high resolution digital images in under one minute. Stored in a postage stamp-sized SD card, PRETEC SD 133X is the optimal choice for digital cameras and other handheld devices. PRETEC SD 133X’s mass production is scheduled at Q2/2005.
