HitachiHitachi Microdrive streaming video at CES 2006 : At Storage-Visions 2006, Hitachi demonstrates the first working CE-ATA hard drive running on an Intel platform. The live demo shows streaming video from a Hitachi Microdrive 3K8 one-inch hard drive over the CE-ATA interface, connected to an Intel XScale application processor. The demo validates integrity of the interface specifications and signals the imminent commercialization of Hitachi's CE-ATA-based Microdrive. With video representing the next killer application for CE devices due to its need for high storage capacity, Hitachi has been in discussion with leading manufacturers of personal media centers, smart phones and other multi-media devices on adoption of the CE-ATA interface.

CE-ATA was developed to facilitate the unique communication between small-form-factor hard drives and consumer electronic devices that increasingly require low-cost, high-capacity storage. The CE-ATA Consortium intends to accelerate the adoption of hard drives into portable CE devices by addressing CE-specific requirements such as low pin-count, low voltage, power efficiency, cost effectiveness and integration efficiency. The Hitachi Microdrive 3K8 is the first hard drive to realize this goal.

Hitachi Global Storage Technologies
"Hitachi has always been on the forefront of advancing small-form-factor hard drives and their use in consumer electronics," said Bill Healy, senior vice president, marketing & HDD business planning and strategy, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. "Our leadership in implementing the CE-ATA interface is in line with our effort to bring the value of low cost and high storage capacity to consumers, which, with the onset of video, is needed now more than ever. The CE-ATA interface will help make the task of integrating the hard drive that much easier for device manufacturers." Hitachi plans to ship the Microdrive 3K8 with CE-ATA support this quarter.

Hitachi Microdrive 3K8 - 8GB storage
Hitachi's world-renowned Microdrive has methodically defined the landscape for innovations in miniature hard drives since its 1999 introduction. The revolutionary matchbook-sized Microdrive went unchallenged until 2004, when the demand for higher and higher capacity in even tinier packages led Hitachi to re-cast the one-inch disk into a 20-percent smaller package. The resulting product, affectionately called "Mikey," was introduced at CES 2005. Today, Mikey continues the Microdrive heritage of innovation by becoming the first hard drive to integrate the next-generation CE-ATA interface.

"Public demonstration of the first fully functional CE-ATA one-inch disk drive just three quarters after completion of the new industry interface specification is an incredible accomplishment that marks a significant milestone in the CE-ATA initiative and implies CE-ATA products are around the corner," said Knut Grimsrud, CE-ATA steering committee chairman and Intel Fellow. "Innovative new CE-ATA disk drives connected to Intel XScale application processors provide the core building blocks for the next generation of exciting new portable consumer electronics applications."
