1.8” drives with low-insertion force (LIF) SATA (Serial ATA) connectors
Toshiba has expanded its 1.8" hard disk drive (HDD) category with the launch of new 1.8" drives with low-insertion force (LIF) SATA (Serial ATA) connectors.
The new storage offerings are designed for use in multiple devices, including tablets, consumer electronics devices and external HDDs.
The new MKxx39GSL series offers three models: 160GB (MK1639GSL), 200GB (MK2039GSL) and 220GB (MK2239GSL) capacities.
The MK2239GSL, MK2039GSL, and the MK1639GSL are designed for mobile computing applications, with approximately 2.5" HDDs in terms of vibration robustness, low power consumption, and quiet operation.
Toshiba said that the MKxx39GSL family is designed to withstand the demands of mobility usage, tolerating up to 1,500Gs of non-operational shock and 600Gs of operational shock.
Toshiba storage device division mobile marketing vice president Maciek Brzeski said designers of next-generation consumer electronics, tablets, and mobile devices need disk drives that will stand up to the demands of day-to-day usage in a world increasingly defined by mobility and connectivity to all forms of content.
