Samsung Electronics Ltd has introduced what it touts as the industry's first 1.8inch drive that packs 60Gbyte capacity on a single form factor measuring 5mm tall. The company released the product under its N-Series product line.

"Samsung is offering cutting-edge technology from an aerial density standpoint with the new 1.8inch N-series. Given the same amount of hard drive space, Samsung is able to offer 60GB per disk where our competitors can only offer 40Gbytes," said Albert Kim, national sales manager, Storage Systems for Samsung Semiconductor. "This enables us to produce more compact hard drives that will fit into smaller, more portable electronic devices."

Using perpendicular magnetic recording technology, the company said they were able to deliver very high storage capacity on a single form factor. This makes the drives suitable for a slew of CE and mobile apps such as small PC, portable media centers and mobile music devices.

Meanwhile, the 1.8 inch N-series product line also includes single drives with capacities of 20-, 30- and 40Gbyte. All feature 1.8 Bel of sound and ultralow power consumption of .3W in low-power idle mode. The drives also support PATA (ZIF) as well as the new CE-ATA interface. They are now available both in internal and external versions.
