TASCAM announced a full-size TSQD-128A SDXC media card that’s pre-formatted by TASCAM before shipment to ensure optimum performance, making them ready for use immediately.

The TSQD-128A SD card supports the UHS-I (Ultra High Speed) standard that increases the speed of the bus interface and improves transfer speeds — resulting in high-speed performance with a maximum transfer rate of 95MB/sec (read) and 85MB/sec (write). By creating a customized media card for recording, file fragmentation and slow random access that can occur with repeated use is improved. This was accomplished by conducting its own in-house original media evaluations and then selecting media which is IC resistant to repeated random access. TASCAM engineering worked in close coordination with the media manufacturer to ensure that fixed components (control ICs, memory devices, etc.) verified to work with TASCAM products are implemented into the TSQD-128A SD card. As a result of TASCAM collaborating on the design, there is less chance for incompatibility due to production reasons, and the company claims high stability for use with all TASCAM products that have high-capacity media capability and use a full-size media card.

The TSQD-128A provides a minimum speed class of 30MB/sec with support for UHS Speed Class 3 and Video Speed Class V30. The result is random access-resistant media, with a high level of stability. Further, by recognizing the popularity of the SD card medium, the TSQD-128A is adaptable with other non-TASCAM high capacity SDXC-compatible devices that use a full-size media card.
