Fujitsu Asia unveils latest 2.5-inch SATA hard disk drives for ASEAN (Press Release)

Fujitsu Asia announced the MHW2BK series of Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) hard disk drives (HDDs).

Engineered primarily for blade server, industrial, robotic, surveillance and telecommunications operations, the MHW2BK series of HDDs has been designed with a spindle speed of 7,200 revolutions per minute (rpm) and a maximum data rate of 3 gigabits per second (Gb/s).

The product line also incorporates features to minimize the adverse effects of rotational vibration (such as read or write failures) which may occur when multiple drives are mounted on a single chassis and rotated at high speeds, for increased operational stability.

The MHW2BK series includes three models with storage capacities of 60 gigabytes (GB), 80 GB and 120 GB. The models also possess attributes found in earlier SATA HDDs by Fujitsu Asia, such as low power consumption and high shock tolerance.

Specifications for the MHW2BK Series:

  • Form factor: 2.5”
  • Capacity: 60 GB, 80 GB, 120 GB
  • Interface: Serial ATA 3.0 Gb/s
  • Rotational speed: 7,200 rpm
  • Avg seek time (typ): 10.5ms (read); 12.5 ms (write)
  • Data transfer rate: Max 300 MB/s
  • Buffer size: 8 MB
  • Shock tolerance Operating: 300 G (2 ms)
  • Shock tolerance Non-operating: 900 G (1 ms)
  • Power supply: + 5 V ± 5%
  • Power consumption R/W (typ): 2.1 W (1.5 Gb/s) / 2.3 W (3.0 Gb/s)
  • Power consumption Idle (typ): 0.80 W (in slumber mode)
  • Power consumption Standby (typ): 0.13 W (in slumber mode)
  • Acoustics Idle (typ): 2.5 bels or less
  • Dimensions (H x W x L): 9.5 x 70 x 100 mm
  • Weight: 116 g or less

The MHW2BK series will be available for the ASEAN (including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam) markets beginning this quarter.
