Bigger and better, but smaller, too
Hitachi announces the new Microdrive 3K8
1.0-inch hard drive, featuring a dramaticallyreduced footprint for integration in mobile
phones and ultra-miniature CE devices. With
a maximum capacity of 8GB, this 3600RPM
drive will hold 33% more than its predecessor.
Available for embedded designs only, the
3K8 is the first Hitachi Microdrive to use a ZIF
connector and is offered with PATA,
CE-ATA or ATA on MMC interface support.
With significantly reduced power consumption and twice the shock protection, Hitachi
has engineered this drive to withstand the
rigors of the most frequently handled devices.
The Microdrive 3K8 is ideally suited for
mobile phones, offering the best blend of
capacity, size, performance and value with

minimal impact on talk time to enable the newest feature-rich converged devices.
Innovative technology for increased ruggedness
Hitachi has implemented a drop sensor on the Microdrive 3K8, called Extra Sensory
Protection™ (ESP). Designed to detect a minimum 4-inch vertical fall, ESP immediately
retracts the read/write heads, turning a potential crash into a soft landing. This optional
feature is available in 1Q06 on all models of the 3K8. Hitachi has also designed two shock
isolation systems (drive corner bumpers) that significantly increase shock protection —
one supports the small profile of the Microdrive 3K8 in a CE device, and the other supports
the 3K8 in a CF-II footprint. These bumpers offer improved drive and device ruggedness.
Microdrive 3K8 delivers on Hitachi’s commitment to technology leadership and satisfies
the storage demands of converged, handheld devices.
Hitachi quality, support and service
Hitachi Microdrive products are built on a mature architecture with more than five years of
field-proven reliability. Designed to the highest quality standards, Microdrives are backed
by the Hitachi hallmark of excellence. Hitachi provides worldwide technical support and CE
integration services to enable global customers to bring their products to market quickly.
