Cornice unveils 1" 2GB Cornice SE hard drives
Cornice, the maker of miniature storage solutions, unveiled its new 2GB 1" HDD belonging to the Cornice SE (Storage Element) series. The novelty is primarily designed for multimedia players, GPS tools, etc. If you remember, the previous 1.5GB 1" Cornice model was introduced in June 2003.
- 42.8x36.4x5mm size
- 14.5g weight
- ~4mW consumption at typical audio playback; ~21mW at typical video playback; ~75mW at typical video recording
- Over 5-year lifetime (under typical conditions)
- 3.3V voltage
- Up to 4.5MB/s average throughput
If you also remember, Cornice´s main market rivals are Toshiba that aggressively promotes its 1.8" solutions; Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (HGST) that already its 4GB 1" drive announced a year ago; GS Magicstor that plans to launch volume shipments of 4.4GB 1" drives.
Anyway, besides the quite good partner list, Cornice already ships its 2GB Cornice SE drives for the acceptable price of about $70 per unit in quantities of 100,000 per year.
