SmartMedia (SM Smart Media) Memory Card 8mb
Smart Media Card
Ranging in MB from 2Mb - 128Mb - (2mb, 4mb, 8mb, 16mb, 32mb,
Smart Media was popular in digital cameras, and reached its
peak in about 2001 when it garnered nearly half of the digital camera market. It
was backed especially by Fujifilm and Olympus and several other Camera
manufactures, industrial users and keyboard manufactures (Music keyboards).
Though the format started to exhibit problems as camera resolutions increased
and so was replaced by XD by these manufactures. Cards larger than 128 MB were
not available and they ceased production of the Smart Media card in 1998. Those
cards in the market now are the last cards available.
A Smart Media card consists of a single NAND flash chip
embedded in a thin plastic card, although some higher capacity cards contain
multiple, linked chips. It was one of the smallest and thinnest of the early
memory cards, only 0.76mm thick, and managed to maintain a favourable cost ratio
as compared to the others.
