SAMSUNG Electronics Launches CompactFlashTM card Biz

Flash memory is the fastest growing segment of the semiconductor industry. Market Watcher, an industry research firm, forecasts that the Flash memory market will grow 26 percent this year (from 10 billion US$ in 2002, to 16 billion US$ in 2003). Samsung currently holds a 35 percent Flash memory market share and plans to achieve leading supplier status by the year 2005 by offering cutting-edge devices in an extensive range of configurations and densities.

About CompactFlash Cards
CompactFlash Type I cards are designed with Flash technology, a non-volatile storage solution that does not require a battery to retain data indefinitely. CompactFlash storage products are solid state, meaning they contain no moving parts, and provide users with much greater protection of their data than conventional magnetic disk drives. They are five to ten times more rugged and reliable than disk drives. CompactFlash Type I cards weigh half an ounce and are the size of a matchbook.
