ALISO VIEJO, Calif., January 16, 2007 - SiliconSystems, Inc., a world leader in advanced storage technology, today announced that it has extended its patented SiliconDrive product line to offer a 1.8-inch form factor. Available now in capacities up to 16 gigabytes, the new smaller form factor SiliconDrive is ideal for size and weight constrained applications, such as tablet and notebook PCs, in-flight applications and portable medical devices.
SiliconSystems' SiliconDrives are engineered to exceed the high performance, high reliability and multi-year lifecycle requirements of Enterprise System OEM applications. SiliconDrives in the 1.8-inch form factor maintain all the patented and patent-pending advanced technologies, such as PowerArmor and SiSMART, integrated into existing SiliconDrive form factors. Applications that have historically been forced to use 2.5-inch form factor hard drives now have a smaller, lighter package alternative.
Satisfying growing market demand in space and weight sensitive applications, the new 1.8-inch form factor SiliconDrive provides customers with a feature-rich product that provides Enterprise System OEMs with a lower total cost of storage ownership.
