Hitachi will show that reliable video on CE devices using its CE-ATA drives, like the 3k8 (nicknamed Mikey) is just around the corner. Mikey is the first drive to meet the CE-ATA Consortium’s requirements of low pin-count, low voltage, power efficiency, cost effectiveness and integration efficiency. Mikey led the way at CES 2005 with its reduction to a 20-percent smaller package. Now Hitachi takes the next step by integrating its Microdrive technology with the next generation CE-interface connected to Intel XScale(R) processors.
Hitachi’s CE-ATA demo can be viewed in room N246 at the Las Vegas Convention Center on January 7, from 10:30 AM to 1 PM.
