Cornice 2GB hard drive for consumer electronics and portable devices
Cornice introduced the 2.0GB Cornice Storage Element, a 1 inch storage device for use in consumer electronics, portable devices, and other applications that demand large amounts of reliable, inexpensive storage in a small space and at the lowest cost.

The 2.0-gigabyte Storage Element will allow electronics device manufacturers to build new pocket-able products that store more music, video, and pictures, as well as more office productivity files such as presentations and word processing documents. With the additional storage relative to the previous generation of the Storage Element, increasingly compelling, cost-competitive video capture and playback devices can be developed that are able to store more than three hours of VHS-quality video. Other applications include continent-inclusive GPS devices, multi-function handheld computers, and other emerging product types.

By carrying out a fundamental re-evaluation of how portable storage devices should be designed and manufactured, Cornice achieved the industry's lowest cost for high-capacity portable storage. By re-examining the mechanics and electronics of storage devices, Cornice was able to create an inexpensive storage solution that is compact, durable, and optimized for portable electronics.

Launched in June 2003, the first generation of Cornice's Storage Element remains a key component in some of the most innovative MP3 players, video camcorders, and USB keychain drives introduced that year. Leading consumer electronics infrastructure providers like Texas Instruments, PortalPlayer, and SigmaTel announced their continued intent to optimize their offerings for use with Cornice's Storage Element, providing consumer electronics manufacturers an easy way to incorporate the Cornice Storage Element within future products.

The list price is US$70 per unit in quantities of 100,000 per year.
