Toshiba Storage Device Division (SDD) will showcase its perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) at DiskCon 2005 on Sept. 20-21, at the Westin Hotel/Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California.

Scott Maccabe, VP, general manager of Toshiba SDD, will moderate the PMR presentation and present "Implications for a New Era of Hard Disk Drive Technology," which explores the advantages that perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) will bring to HDDs over other storage technologies. The presentation showcases Toshiba's first-to-market position with PMR, which has been in development by HDD manufacturers for more than 30 years. In addition, Hiroshi Okamura from Toshiba's Storage Design Center will present "Introduction of the Perpendicular Hard Disk Drive," detailing Toshiba's path to achieving the first mass produced PMR HDD.

Maccabe will moderate the "Perpendicular Recording - Innovation Achieved" session on Sept. 21 at 1 p.m. The session also will outline the implications for the consumer electronics and computing industries in their quest to deliver a truly digital experience. Okamura's presentation in the Intermag/MMM/TMRC Conference - Related Highlights session will take place on Sept. 21 at 8 a.m.

Toshiba's MK4007GAL HDD 1.8-inch HDD packs 40GB of storage space on a single platter - the largest single-platter capacity yet achieved in the 1.8-inch form factor. The 1.8-inch PMR HDD is now shipping in Toshiba's new Gigabeat F41, enabling the MP3 player to store up to 10,000 songs. In addition, Toshiba plans to incorporate PMR on its 0.85-inch HDD in 2006, bringing capacity in the world's smallest HDD to 6GB-8GB.
