Crucial Technology has moved beyond DRAM (dynamic RAM) and entered the CompactFlash market, the company said Monday. Meridian, Idaho-based Crucial is now offering its own line of CompactFlash cards for gadgets such as digital cameras, handheld computers and digital music players. CompactFlash is one of several competing flash memory formats used in removable storage. Crucial is selling CompactFlash cards in seven densities, from 8MB for $16 to 128MB for $83. Customers who order online receive a 10 percent discount.
Crucial is a division of Micron Semiconductor Products, a wholly owned subsidiary of Micron Technology.
