Intel shows handheld devices based on CE-ATA storage interface
Posted on 4-Mar-2005 11:22 | Tags Filed under: News



Six months after CE-ATA was launched, a final 1.0 specification has been published for the storage interface for next-generation handhelds and portable consumer electronics devices. The announcement was made by Intel during the Intel Developer Forum 2005, in San Francisco.

The first demonstration of an Intel host is being shown during the forum. The demo is of a prototype Intel handheld media player running video off a CE-ATA prototype disk drive supplied by Marvell. The CE-ATA prototype drive is an off-the-shelf 1.8-inch hard drive re-fitted with Marvellís small form factor chipset and firmware, featuring the 88i6310 SOC, as well as Marvellís stacked flash, motor controller, switching regulator and preamplifier.

The host system used is an Intel development board for a PDA-style handheld that features an Intel PXA270 processor running prototype host driver software developed by Intel.

A second demo highlighting key CE-ATA interface fundamentals is being featured in the CE-ATA Working Group booth by Marvell and Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. The demo illustrates the capabilities of CE-ATA technology on a prototype PDA platform playing video stored on a Hitachi Travelstar 1.8-inch hard disk drive, which has been reconfigured with Marvellís chipset and firmware solution.
