Toshiba Corporation today announced that it will launch a new line of high performance SDXC and SDHC memory cards under a new brand name, EXCERIA, that will bring to market SD memory cards offering the highest performance levels available.

EXCERIA, a combination of "excellent" and "experience" offers cards compliant with the Standard Ver.3.0 UHS-I, and includes versions offering the world-fastest class data . The new products will be launched from April in Japan, with distinctive labeling.

The SD memory card has emerged as the card of choice in all kinds of personal digital equipment.

The minimum recording speed is compliant with UHS speed class 1 and SD speed class 10.
