SD Association Announces Wireless LAN SD Spec
Jan 9, 2012, 11:49 AM by Eric M. Zeman
The SD Association today announced a new standard for portable memory cards that adds wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) to the cards. Wireless LAN SD cards will support the IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n wireless standard, as well as the SD association's full size SD/SDHC/SDXC and microSD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. The SD Association imagines that consumers will be able to use Wi-Fi equipped memory cards in myriad consumer electronics devices, including cameras and other gear, to upload and download content such as images and video automatically via Wi-Fi without the need to plug in wires or connectors. The Wireless LAN SD memory card standard has two interface types: a Web interface and a home network interface. The web mode supports upload and peer-to-peer sharing while the home network supports uploading and home network communications. The SD Association didn't say when it expects Wireless LAN SD cards to reach the market.
