Hitachi selects Micron NAND for hybrid optical disk drive

Initial portfolio of hybrid drives will be offered in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB embedded flash memory capacities

By CBR Staff Writer

Hitachi-LG Data Storage (HLDS) has selected 25-nanometer (nm) NAND from Micron Technology, as the flash memory offering for its new hybrid optical disk drive (ODD).

The 25nm NAND process technology from Micron offers 8-gigabytes (GB) of storage in a single device.

Micron said that the new HLDS hybrid drive along with its 25nm NAND technology will provide an efficient mass storage and removable media offering for PCs, DVD players and Blu-ray products.

The initial portfolio of HLDS hybrid drives will be offered in a range of embedded flash memory capacities including 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.

HLDS chief marketing officer YK Park said, the second generation hybrid drive, embedded with Micron’s 25nm NAND, is designed to fit in the conventional ODD form factor, allowing easy replacement of a conventional ODD and providing the added benefit of onboard storage.
