Hagiwara shrinks 2.5-inch SSD tech to 1-inch drives
Hagiwara Sys-Com has recently announced it has applied the technology from 2.5-inch solid state drives to smaller 1-inch drives.
They have developed the HDF10P SSD drive which is currently only available in an 8GB capacity however they are planning on releasing a 16GB version.
The company has placed the TrueSSD controller it has developed in-house to the smaller drives, which performs static wear leveling to make the drives last longer by evenly distributing write operations across all cells in the media.
The HFD10P has a PATA interface, and sustained read speeds are set at 39MBps, while write speeds are rated at 25MBps. The smaller form factor of these drives makes them well-suited for use in netbooks and other ultra-portable computing devices.
No word on pricing or release information yet.
