Fremont, California-based SyQuest Technology Corp has had an uphill struggle to get its exchangeable Winchester drives widely accepted, but the company has survived and now looks set for its day in the sun. It is preparing what it claims is the highest capacity, highest performance removable cartridge Winchester, which stores 105Mb per removable cartridge and comes in a 1 high 3.5 form factor. The company says the SQ3105, the newest member of the Mesa series, stores 105Mb formatted, and matches the performance of fixed Winchesters with average access time of under 15mS. It draws under 3W from a single 5V power supply and will be offered with AT and SCS interfaces. Evaluation quantities of the drive will be offered in the second quarter of 1992 with volume planned for the third quarter. OEM quantity pricing will be under $300 for the drive, $60 for cartridges.
