CorniceCornice 8GB micro hard drive : Cornice Inc., an innovator in consumer storage solutions, announced the expansion of its storage offerings with the addition of an ultra thin, high-capacity personal storage device. The Cornice 8GB Dragon series micro hard drives will allow OEMs to offer thinner and higher-capacity consumer electronics (CE) devices while featuring industry-leading robustness, durability, and low power requirements for everyday consumer use. Audio/video players, mobile phones and personal storage devices will all be enhanced by the Dragon series micro hard drive. The Dragon Series drive is available in volume quantities in Q1. List price is $85 per unit in quantities of 10,000 per year.

Cornice's unique architecture is designed from the ground up and exclusively for CE devices. By focusing only on components required for the CE market, Cornice has created a disk drive solution that is streamlined specifically for these pocket-able products. At 8-gigabytes today, Cornice is firmly in the leadership position for storage density. In response to end-user endurance demands, Cornice has decreased the power of Dragon by half, and now represents only five percent of the total battery consumption within a typical MP3 player system.

By narrowing the casing around the disk and by shrinking the "z" height, Cornice was able to produce the smallest and thinnest drive on the market, a necessity for next-generation, high-capacity mobile phones, audio/video players and personal storage devices. The Dragon series drives are 40-percent smaller than its predecessor, Storage Elements, as well as current competitive drives. Cornice will be showcasing the new Dragon Series storage at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) from January 5-8, 2006, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"Through our strong strategic customer relationships, we've learned that portable consumer storage markets not only require a very small and thin form-factor, but they also require low power storage solutions rugged enough to meet the stringent consumer usability requirements," said Camillo Martino, Cornice's president and chief executive officer. "The Dragon series micro hard drive is Cornice's answer to our customers' needs and demands and a result of focusing our storage solutions for portable consumer electronics. The market opportunity for this type of storage is growing rapidly and Cornice is in a prime position to capture a large long-term market share."

Micro hard drive - Durability and Crash Guard
Cornice technology ensures that consumer electronics devices will provide continuous and uninterrupted playback even during today's most active lifestyles. The new Dragon series drives are protected by Cornice's rugged design, Crash Guard, and can withstand excessive shaking, extreme drops, and other abuse without skipping, stopping, or crashing.

Crash Guard - Data protection
Crash Guard consists of: Active Latch: when dropped, the most common damage to a hard drive occurs when the head scrapes across the surface of the disk (not unlike the needle scratching across an old vinyl LP record when the turntable was bumped). Cornice securely locks the head in place with an active latch mechanism. Other features are Skip Control: hard drives are going places they have never been before, jogging, 4-wheel driving, skydiving, and are expected to operate even with excessive and repetitive motion. Cornice designed the Dragon series drives from the ground up to withstand the most extreme conditions while providing continuous playback without skipping or restarting. Furthermore Crash Guard consists of Drop Safe; this feature in the Crash Guard family allows the drive to actually sense being dropped. This means that even if the drive is in the middle of reading or writing data to the disk, it can immediately react and place the head safety under the active latch well before the unit actually strikes the ground.
