Toshiba Launches SDHC Memory Card with Embedded Wireless LAN Communications for Developers of Business Products

July 18, 2014

TOKYO— Toshiba Corporation's (TOKYO: 6502) Semiconductor & Storage Products Company today announced that it will start the sales of SDHC memory cards with embedded wireless LAN communications for third-party solution providers.

The new product, THNSW008GAA-B(QB6) has the same hardware composition as "FlashAir™", the SDHC memory card with embedded wireless LAN communications, currently available in the consumer market. Since the card itself has embedded wireless LAN and web server functions, its insertion into an SDHC memory card slot adds wireless functions to various devices.

With API (Application Programming Interface) information openly available in the "FlashAir Developers" website, business users can develop their own apps or set up their own configuration to adapt the card for various devices. [1] The card is compliant with the iSDIO standard, making it possible for a host that meets the standard to control its wireless LAN functionality.

There are no labels or marking on the front side in order for solutions providers to freely design the label, while the reverse side is imprinted with the wireless certification information of the USA, Canada, Europe and Japan.
