Kingston Digital, the flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, has recently shifted the focus on their most recent Secure Digital (SD) card onto drones, which require the use of memory as well. The Kingston Technology Corporation currently owns 59% of the third-party DRAM module market share worldwide, as the company is the largest independent producer of DRAM memory modules. They are also arguably the second largest provider of flash memory. Kingston Digital’s latest microSD Action Camera UHS-I U3 (Speed Class 3) card was unveiled at the end of March.
