The new drive’s operating shock resistance of 325G (2msec) is 50 percent higher than in Toshiba’s current 2.5-inch HDD, due to employment of the smaller, lighter Femto Sliders in combination with a lighter head-suspension and head arm.
Power consumption of the MK1031GAS is approximately 20 percent lower on average than the company’s current drive range due to pulse width modulation that controls disk rotation speed by switching the power supply to the spindle motor on and off at a controlled frequency. A DC-DC converter is also used in the power unit.
As notebook PCs become increasingly popular, lightweight and contain sophisticated multi-media options, this new drive will be the premier hard disk drive for advanced mobile computing applications.
