Fujitsu delivers volume production of its mobile 2.5 inch hard drive
Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. has announced volume production of the first 2.5" Serial ATA (SATA) drives, with volume shipments to distribution partners beginning immediately.

Fujitsu unveiled the MHT2080BH (80GB) series hard disk drives in January 2004 and became the world's first hard disk drive vendor to deliver Serial ATA architecture in a 2.5" form factor. The hard disk drive features Native Command Queuing (NCQ), an important feature that intelligently and simultaneously coordinates up to 32 instructions to be queued and reordered by the hard disk controller, contributing to a significant improvement in overall performance.

The Fujitsu 2.5" SATA hard disk drive is among the world's smallest and fastest hard disk drives. The interface boasts data transfer rates of 150 Mbytes per second with dedicated throughput. Over the past year, leading OEMs have adopted and implemented SATA hard disk drive technology in mobile computers and consumer electronics due to its speed and quick response. Broad distribution of the hard disk drive series will enable additional growth of the technology in those applications as well as in enterprise storage systems and desktop computing environments.

Storage capacity in the MHT2080 series varies from 40GB, 60GB, and 80GB, with a 8MB buffer size. Seek time (track-to-track) is 1.5ms, with average of 12ms. Average latency is 5.6ms. All models are 5400RPM and weigh 99g or less.

One of the advantages of this size is that three to four 2.5-inch SATA drives can fit in the same space as one 3.5-inch drive, allowing it to be used in a RAID array, although the drives are not intended for use in 24x7 applications.
