JEDEC has announced eMMC4.4 standard

Dear Friends,

Here I would like to inform you regarding the Multimedia Card's new version specification as JDEC has now announced 4.4 on 14th April 2009. I am very excited to read the specification. I know now you might be surprised why I am so excited to read the same. The reason is I worked on verification of eMMC4.3 card IP.

JEDEC Announces Publication of new MMC v4.4 specification
