At NAB 2007, Stealth Imaging, LLC, announced its 120 GB Solid-State PCMCIA Hard Drive, based on NAND Flash technology, which will be shipping by Q3 2007. The device is in CardBus Type II form factor, only 86 mm long and just 5 mm thick, and sustains 132 Megabytes per second for reads or writes, with random seek times of less than 50 ns.
Under full load it operates silently, consuming less than 1/3 the power of a spinning hard disk drive, and uses only a few mA when idle, dramatically extending the battery lifetime of laptop computers.
It can operate in different modes of compatibility, including a hybrid acceleration/storage mode on Mac OS X, and is expected to become thepremier high-capacity memory card (P2 equivalent) for Panasonic HD video cameras and NLE workstation components, as well as for portable computing, scientific, industrial, law enforcement and military applications.
