“We are proud to offer SGDK355Pro as a part of the test suite for the Works with GoPro verification program,” said Hiroto Okada, CEO and President, SolidGear Corporation. “We jointly developed SGDK355Pro with GoPro to emulate GoPro cameras’ access to microSD Card in the tester, which can save evaluation time and provide a comprehensive test suite.”

Works with GoPro is a verification program for products that work with GoPro cameras. Once verified, products have the option to feature a Works with GoPro logo. MicroSD Cards are subject to this program. SGDK355Pro itself is not a Works with GoPro product, but can verify a microSD Card if its performance meets the requirements for GoPro cameras to capture video and picture data.

“We worked with SolidGear to develop a performance verification tester for the Works with GoPro program. A microSD Card vendor who wants to use the Works with GoPro logo on their products will need to conduct verification tests with SGDK355Pro and submit result reports to GoPro for approval,” said Adam Silver, Director of Strategic Product Partnerships at GoPro.

Pricing & Availability

SGDK355Pro is only available for applicants of Works with GoPro program. Unit price is USD 13,000 excluding tax. Shipping cost may be requited depending on area.
