Dual-Voltage MultiMediaCard

DV-MMC stands for Dual-Voltage MultiMediaCard. DV-MMC was a short-lived form of MultiMediaCard that introduced a substantial change to MMC that introduced dual-voltage cards. The cards support operations at 1.8V in addition to 3.3V. The lower voltages lead to lower power consumption in use. Simply providing dual-voltage operations wasn't enough however, and these cards were quickly replaced by MMCmobile and MMCplus.

MMC products also are marketed in a variety of different brands.
