Intel’s New Low Power Storage Drive

Intel introduced a new, thumbnail-sized solid state storage drive designed for embedded applications in numerous portable electronic devices. The Z-P140 PATA Solid State Drive is a low-power, high-performance NAND flash-based storage drive. The 2GB and 4GB versions will be available early in 2008; 8GB and 16GB versions are expected out later in 2008 or in 2009 and Intel also projects that they can produce a 64GB version by 2010. The Z-P140, which features 40MB per second read and 30MB per second write throughput, has performed 30 percent faster than comparable hard drives in testing and uses 75 percent less power to do it. At idle 1.1mW are drawn and 300mW typical in operation. Check out Intel’s webpage for more info.
