Toshiba announced it will showcase a SDHC memory card with TransferJet close proximity wireless transfer technology at CES 2013. TransferJet is a wireless technology with a connection distance of a few centimeters, it uses an electric induction field and promises effective throughput bandwidth of up to 375Mbit/s (46.88MB/s).
Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) will showcase a reference display of an SDHC memory card with TransferJet™ close proximity wireless transfer technology at the 2013 International CES, to be held from January 8 to 11, 2013, in Las Vegas, U.S.A.
The SDHC memory card on reference display will be a product under development, integrating a TransferJet™ transceiver IC, a coupler, an RF filter, peripheral passive parts, an SD bridge connection circuit, and Toshiba's NAND flash memory.
Data transfer by TransferJet™ communications will be implemented in devices supporting SDHC memory cards, such as digital cameras and PCs, by inserting this card in the card slots.
TransferJet™ is a close proximity wireless transfer technology standard promoted by the TransferJet™ Consortium whose membership consists of 45 companies (as of December 28, 2012), including Toshiba. TransferJet™ technology provides simple connection and high-speed data transfer with low power consumption just by selecting on the screen of a device the data file to be transferred and by touching the receiving device with that device. Applications of TransferJet™ technology is expected to expand when combined with various devices and technologies, such as digital signage and Near Field Communications (NFC).
