Multi-Gigabyte Hard Disks Sport Tiny Form Factor

Profiled as the market's smallest, the company's latest 0.85", 2-GB and 4-GB hard-disk drives (HDDs) measure just 3.3 x 24 x 32 mm and 5 x 24 x 32 mm, respectively. Weighing less than 10g each, both drives employ a single platter with a rotation speed of 3,600 rpm and can withstand up to 1 kg of shock while operating in temperatures from 0°C to 65°C. Operating voltage is 3.3V for both. They are expected to boost functionality in the next-generation of portable products, including mobile phones, digital audio players, PDAs, digital still cameras, camcorders, and external storage devices. Samples will be available in the summer with mass production scheduled for late this year.For more details and prices, call TOSHIBA STORAGE DEVICE DIVISION, Irvine, CA. (949) 583-3000.
