Microsoft have said that they are creating a ‘flexible licensing program’ for their exFAT file system, the follow up to the ancient FAT format which now supports up to 256TB of data. This licensing agreement has been initiated due to apparent consumer demand from flash device makers across the world.

David Kaefer, Microsoft’s Intellectual property licensing chief said: “exFAT is an ideal file system that delivers fast and reliable use of audio and video files. It is an important technology in Windows 7, and now that we are licensing this technology broadly to the industry, we want to encourage and support partners to build products that also contain this technology.”

Sandisk, Sanyo, Canon and Sony have already agreed $300,000 licensing deals with Microsoft for the use of exFat in camera, camcorder and digital photo frames however for the use in PC and mobile phones the volume licensing fee is higher.
