Toshiba announced today that the company 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).
