In a recent development in the hard drive storage technology Fujitsu outshines other HDD makers with a major leap in the development of smaller and high capacity Hard drives.Fujitsu has revealed that with the help of new nanohole technology using PMR(Perpendicular Magnetic Recording) the new hard drives can store a massive terabyte of data on square inch of recording surface thus the technology would provide low power,compact HDD’s along with massive storage capacities.
Fujitsu’s latest invention uses a 2.5 inch disk drive made up of innovative ‘Patterned Medium’ Fujitsu has been working on ‘Patterned Medium’ since June 2005, its only in Jan 2005 they started using new techniques which could give us massive storage solutions.
How This Technology Works?
The new technology utilizes anodized aluminium to create pattern of ‘nanoholes’ each of which holds magnetic material which stores single bit of data.This massive storage would require nanoholes of diameter 13nm while Fujitsu is currently able to produce nanoholes of 25nm ,Fujitsu announced that it has already refined its approach by which nanoholes upto 13nm could be produced which would lead to production of 1 Terabyte of storage space per square inch.
If everything goes o.k then you could see the new smaller,compact massive storage solutions as early as Year 2010.
