HDD: Travelstar C4K60

By : |September 4, 2004 0

Features: Hitachi has replaced the standard notebook-based connector on its new Travelstar C4K60 series with a ZIF connector, thereby reducing the footprint of its new drive by 10 percent enabling easier integration through a common connector, which the CE industry has been using successfully for many years.

For device manufacturers, the ZIF connector on Hitachi’s new drive provides size- and ease-of-integration benefits, but it may also result in lower design and integration costs and greater reliability. Additionally, the ZIF connector, which allows the drive to talk to the host device through a flex cable, gives manufacturers greater flexibility in mounting schemes. The power-management features of Hitachi’s new 1.8-inch drive are targeted at providing optimum conservation in the modes at which the drive spends most of its time: idle, read and standby.

Specifications: The Hitachi CE-focused 1.8-inch drive offers a footprint of 3780 mm2 and weighs 46 grams. At an areal density of 99.8 gigabits per square inch, Hitachi is making possible 30 gigabytes (GB) of storage capacity on a single disk. The Travelstar C4K60 series for CE operates at 4200 RPM and is available in 20- and 30-GB capacities.
