CFA announces new XQD memory card format Format based on XQD specification.
The CompactFlash Association has announced the new XQM memory card format, based on the recently adopted XQD specification. The XQD specification is based on the PCI Express specification, providing a solid base for performance scaling.

"The XQD format will enable further evolution of hardware and imaging applications, and widen the memory card options available to CompactFlash users such as professional photographers," said Mr. Shigeto Kanda of Canon, chairman of the board, CFA.

The form factor specifications dictate dimensions of 38.5 x 29.8 x 3.8mm. The target for actual write speeds currently is set at 125MB/s.

The CompactFlash Association will show off some XQD memory cards at the CP+ 2012 convention, set for February in Yokohama, Japan.
