This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2013.10.24
Toshiba Electronics Europe has launched a new family of small form factor 2.5-inch HDDs that pack up to 1TB in a drive that measures 7mm in height.
For use in ultrathin laptops and thin PCs, the MQ02ABF series is designed for silent operation and low power consumption.
A thinner mechanical structure containing a new 5,400rpm spindle motor is housed within a newly designed rigid chassis that keeps noise levels to 22dB during idle and 23dB during seek operations.
Average drive ready time is just 3.0s (typical) and average seek times are 12ms.
The MQ02ABF100 has a capacity of 1TB and the MQ02ABF075 a capacity of 750GB. Both drives are equipped with two platters and four heads furnished with dual-stage actuators.
The MQ02ABF series drives are supplied with 16MB of buffer memory and SATA 3.0 (SATA 3.0) intelligent interface controllers with maximum operating speed of 6Gb/s.
The drives have an operational temperature range of 0-60°C (ambient) and can withstand shocks of up to 3,430 m/s2 (350G) while in use.
Sample shipment is scheduled to start in November.
