Samsung introduces really small drive

Samsung Electronics Ltd. has announced its first 1.8-inch hard drive with a 60GB single disk capacity and a super-slim form factor that is just five-millimeters tall.

Called the N-series, it features 20Gb, 30Gb, 40Gb and 60Gb per disk capacities.

The 60GB 1.8-inch hard disk can store data equivalent to 60 135-minute movies, 1,500 40MB music videos, or 15,000 4MB MP3 music files. Samsung’s 1.8-inch N-series hard disk drives are available in both internal and external HDD type.

The company said the 1.8-inch drives respond to the increasing demand for added capacity in smaller and smaller PC, mobile, and consumer electronics applications. Samsung’s N-series supports PATA(ZIF) as well as the new CE-ATA interface specifically designed for hard drives used in consumer electronics.

Albert Kim, national sales manager, Storage Systems for Samsung, said this enables us to produce more compact hard drives that will fit into smaller, more portable electronic devices.

Samsung’s 1.8-inch drives feature an ultra low power mobile SoC, a quiet and robust platform design, fast drive ready time, high efficient hybrid latch system, shock sensor and free fall senor which is optional. All are equipped with a 4,200-rpm spindle speed, and 7.14-millisecond average seek time and a 2MB data buffer.
