Small form factor HDD

  • 27-May-2010 07:02 EDT

Toshiba's Storage Device Division has designed a hard disk drive (HDD) with 200 GB of storage capacity in a single-platter design. According to the company, the 4200-rpm SATA MK2060GSC is the highest-capacity automotive-grade HDD available and provides vehicle systems manufacturers with the high-capacity storage needed to improve telematics, navigation, and entertainment systems, particularly as these systems are being designed to communicate with information and content sources outside the car. This automotive storage line will enable car makers and aftermarket vendors to deliver an improved in-vehicle user experience, while enhancing driver safety. With double the maximum storage capacity available, other technical benefits of the MK2060GSC include a 78% improvement in internal transfer rates compared to equivalent products on the market, as well as a faster seek time of 12 ms and extremely quiet “silent seek” operation of 23 dB.
