Cypress Semiconductor Corp. is sampling the ISD-300LP ATA/ATAPI mass-storage controller that supports USB 2.0 bus-powered applications, enabling portable computer users to take their mass-storage subsystems with them without the need to plug into wall outlets.

"The ISD-300LP is a major enabling technology for portable storage devices," said Cedric van Rossum, USB Product Manager for Cypress's Personal Communications Division. "Using the computer's own internal bus for its power source, the ISD-300LP will free mobile computer users from the wall plug, making it possible for them to carry along large amounts of data, all accessible at high speed."

The ISD-300LP (part number:CY7C68310) is available as an 80-pin TQFP and is priced starting at $4.95 in 1,000 units. A reference design kit, the CY4617, is also available and includes an evaluation board, hardware, software, driver, and manufacturing utilities. It is priced at $199.
