Western Digital flash storage devices are used in a wide variety of applications, including consumer and commercial video cameras, dash cams, video surveillance, and many others. The combination of performance, capacity and endurance provided by Western Digital’s purpose-built microSD cards allows these cards to meet the specific needs of the target use-case and application. Some host devices require a full-size SD card, yet not all of Western Digital’s flash storage devices are offered in full-size SD form factor. This is particularly true in the commercial video surveillance and smart video market, where advanced function, AI-capable, and ultra-high resolution cameras require a full-size SD card.
The Western Digital microSD to SD card adapter was created to allow use of WD Purple branded surveillance microSD cards to be utilized in cameras that require a full-size SD card. Just plug the WD Purple microSD card into the adapter, and then place the adapter into the SD card slot of the camera. The full functionality of the microSD card is supported, including features such as card health monitoring (in compatible cameras).
The Western Digital microSD to SD card adapter is fully compliant with the SDA standards and supports UHS-I host interfaces. The SD card adapter is compatible with WD Purple microSD cards.
