Powering the future of SD capability with bulletproof performance
Microsoft's exFAT technology remains the industry leading file system embedded into nearly any device requiring high-capacity storage support-including USB drives, In-vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems, and Secure Digital (SD) memory cards. With embedded storage needs rising among automotive systems, drones, and video content distributors, OEMs are facing a growing need for storage software able to keep up with market demands. Tackling this surge in storage demand requires first-class implementations able to get the most out of exFAT technology.
