Hagiwara outs 1-inch SSDs

Hagiwara Sys-Com has recently announced it has applied the technology from 2.5-inch solid state drives to smaller 1-inch drives, resulting in the HDF10P that is available in up to 8GB capacities, with a 16GB version coming later this year. The company has placed the TrueSSD controller it has developed in-house to the smaller drives, which performs static wear leveling to make the drives last longer by evenly distributing write operations across all cells in the media.

The cache algorithm in the HFD10P organizes small blocks of data into larger blocks for fewer write operations to the Single-Level Cell (SLC) NAND flash drive. The HFD10P has a PATA interface, and sustained read speeds are set at 39MBps, while write speeds are rated at 25MBps. The smaller form factor of these drives makes them well-suited for use in netbooks and other ultra-portable computing devices.

Hagiwara says the new 1-inch SSD is suitable for a boot device thanks to its high write-cycle endurance factor, but has not yet released pricing or release information for the drive. [via i4u]
