MultiMediaCard Association (MMCA) and JEDEC Solid State Technology Association (JEDEC) on Monday announced plans to merge certain MMCA assets, including embedded MMC (e-MMC) and miCARD specifications, trademarks and intellectual

property rights, into JEDEC. The decision once again emphasizes importance of flash memory and supporting technologies on today’s market.

“The combined efforts of MMCA and JEDEC have contributed to the huge market success of the e-MMC standard and proliferation of MMC technology in products from major mobile phone and navigation manufacturers. As long-time leaders in developing memory solutions, this is a significant next step toward supporting the development of next generation memory solutions,” said Yves Leonard, MMCA chairman

The merger is intended to streamline efforts and foster further improvement of existing specifications. Both organizations have forecasted next generation support for embedded memory solutions with  features including: the meeting of speed requirements for next generation systems, Universal Flash Storage (UFS) and the use of XiP or DRAM to support future embedded solutions. The merger follows a partnership forged during the development of the e-MMCv4.2 and v4.3 specifications.

“The merger with MMCA encourages faster technology advancement in the memory card business and a transition from traditional card solutions to more versatile embedded and external solutions, meeting high-speed requirements, while optimizing platform designs and cost-efficiency,” said Mian Quddus, chairman of the JEDEC board of directors.
