p.3 #1 · p.3 #1 · Future of XQD Cards


What I read is they bought the company name... not the whole company, ala Kodak. So, I might actually be more careful buying their cards in the future as they could be an unknown quality. **Just what I read regarding the sale**

I don't think anyone mentioned that Longsys has bought Lexar. We'll probably see new stock of Lexar cards including XQD sooner rather than later. Given that they are four bodies that use XQD and many of these are used professionally, worldwide (Japan and S Korea are huge) numbers add up.

Yes, you're right. Do you know if Micron hand their hands in production or did they just own the name too? I just checked an XQD and it was made in Taiwan.

"Longsys on Thursday announced that it has acquired the Lexar brand name from Micron. The China-based supplier of NAND flash memory-based products will use the trademark to sell Lexar’s traditional devices — removable storage like memory cards and USB flash drives. The company believes that going forward usage of removable storage will expand."

Then I don't think Sony was making them - my Sony cards are made in Japan. I am pretty sure Micron manufactured them.

Lexar was an independent technology developer in the flash memory industry for years before micron purchased them I believe in 2008. Their "specialty" was memory controllers. R&D was in house production was external.

Delkin is a US based independent card developer too

CFExpress is boasting 'same form factor and connector as XQD'. I can't find any statements about backward compatibility with XQD though - it's there / it's not there? Thoughts?

well if your going to use the technology from XQD along with the form factor and and connector i'd be looking towards it being possibly compatible. it was sort of the idea moving forward though some think something else

It's the same base technology so my assumption would be that these devices and readers would accept xqd cards, but xqd devices wouldn't accept these cards... just my guess.

if it is not compatible it will be notched as such and not fit in the slot.

I'm hoping it will be backwards compatible. Possibly slower but still working. Like using UHS-II in UHS-I slot.

The first available CFExpress reader is also an XQD reader. Not sure if that will carry over to actual cameras.
