Seagate introduces DAVE bringing wireless and mobile storage together
Posted on 31-Jan-2007 10:27 | Tags Filed under: News



Seagate Technology has announced the Digital Audio Video Experience (D.A.V.E) technology, a project previously code-named "Crickett". The concept sounds similar to Agere's previously announce BluOnyx platform.

The DAVE platform is a technology that delivers 10-20 GB of wireless storage in an accessory smaller than slim-line mobile phones. DAVE technology is designed to store, play and share digital files on mobile phones, PCs, and other wireless-enabled devices.

To distribute this content DAVE uses Bluetooth or WiFi connections. The company sees DAVE as the answer to providing substantial storage capacity without impacting the design or cost of mobile handsets.

About the size of a centimeter-thick credit card, the DAVE mobile platform slips into a shirt pocket, backpack, or purse -- anywhere up to 30 feet (9.1 meters) from the phone. It measures 3.5 x 4.7 x .47 inches (61 x 89 x 12 mm) and weighs only 2.5 ounces (70 grams).

In addition, the mobile storage platform is open source, enabling third party software developers to create new applications for the mobile phone utilizing the hard drive's capacity and performance. The DAVE technology is offered to telcos and mobile handset OEMs for sale under their respective brand names.

Using products based on the DAVE storage platform, users will be able to store their mobile media on one device, combining
audio and video files downloaded through mobile networks with entertainment and other content side-loaded from PCs or other devices.

A rechargeable lithium ion battery delivers up to 10 hours of media-streaming performance and up to 14 days of standby power.
