Maybe get two of these (one for analysis, one for actual use):
And a bunch of those:
I went ahead and ordered the Kingston Reader as they are very cheap on CLEVERsparen.at, so that leaves the cards and the card sockets.
Note that the reader has slots for both card types (SD and micro), so whatever UHS-II card is cheaper will do for testing.
Can you order the cards as well directly?
annual membership fees 2000$.
1000$ during R&D to receive documentation under NDA for first year.
We now think we know how UHS-II works and where the challenges are.
No hardware tests have been concluded so far because we still need to write software to utilize UHS-II.
What I think is that it would not be practical if we use UHS-II cards because this device is mainly for video production and RAW recording. So if you use a RAID Array of a bunch of UHS-II cards you can get what you want, namely RAW recording enabled. The problem is that a bunch of UHS-II cards would not be practical because you need to bring a bunch of SD Card Reader and hubs to be able to read all the data. If you provide UHS-II cards their price is more than $1/GB now, so it would not be practical for use because SATA SSDs are cheaper and faster, with larger size. With 1 UHS-II card, however, you can record in ProRes 4K or maybe Cineform, I haven't checked for Cineform.
The problem is simple:
- we have 12 LVDS lanes with up the 1.5Gbit of encoded data (officially 1.0Gbit per lane).
- SATA requires 3+ Gbit to be useful, i.e. we would need MGTs to handle that.
- UHS-II can be done with a cheap FPGA
Note that it would be a 'module' and there probably would be a signle 'reader' which can transfer the content to a PC.
But at the moment, all there is are concepts ....
What about future UHS-III ? write up to 624 mo/s, better than Cfast2.0...
No card/slot on the market for now (maybe i'm wrong)
But still a good solution if it will be backward compatible with UHS-II.
Probably SD association can give more informations ?
No nothing ! You don't have to be "association member" to have datasheet and licensing ?
They released the information in february, but this is all i know !
I was hoping that sd association can give us more informations if we want to investigate this way. Or keep in mind if we try go with UHS-ii and trust surely that we can upgrade uhs-iii later !
This is the only thing i found:
