LAS VEGAS, Jan 7, 2000 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Company Joins New Secure

Formed by Matsushita, Toshiba, and SanDisk   e.Digital Corp.

design will be one of the first to feature compatibility with the new,

is another valuable tool we can use in our endeavors to offer our OEM 
customers designs that will support SDMI standards for secure Internet 
music." He added, "For years we have built compatibility into our 
designs for SanDisk memory products, which have become the de facto 
standard for portable devices." 

Nelson Chan, senior vice president of marketing for SanDisk added, "We 
are very proud of the SD Memory Card, especially its security features 
which are becoming more and more important to our customers. Digital 
security is being pursued on many levels, and the SD Memory Card is 
there to support these efforts in portable devices of all kinds." He 
continued, "We are pleased to have e.Digital join the SD Association as 
an inaugural member, as they are one of the first to incorporate 
compatibility for SD Memory into a portable product design."

specifications and includes support for multiple music codecs,
