MMCmobile - definition


A memory card is a flash memory data storage device used in a wide range of digital devices such as mobile phones, digital cameras, PDAs, music players, etc. They are small, rugged and offer high re-record ability and power-free operation.

There is a wide range of memory card formats. MMC (which stands for "Multi Media Card") is one of the oldest formats and has been replaced by newer ones like SD, microSD and microSDHC.

MMCmobile cards are based on the RS-MMC cards and share the same mini form factor. The difference between them is that MMCmobile cards are dual-voltage and can operate in older phones with a high-voltage (3V) slot as well as in newer models with a low-voltage (1.8V) slot.

The MMCmobile standard is now considered an outdated standard and has been replaced by newer ones like microSD and microSDHC.
