Hard drives to get integrated into chips

Posted on Wednesday, November 16 2005 @ 00:40:22 CET by


The Inquirer heard today its likely hard drives will be integrated into chip packages in the next few years.

This statement comes from Jon Lanson, senior VP of Amkor technology. He says the size of HDDs now got to a size where it can be put into almost any package. When that happens, and it's a when rather than an if, it will bring huge benefits including lower power consumption.
This makes us really begin to think. If you can get a hard drive into a chip package, several microprocessor cores, and a heap of memory, the dream of a truly thin and light notebook will come true.

It appears, from what Lanson said, that it’s feasible to do this now. But will the hard drive manufacturers like Seagate fight their patch furiously. And the memory suppliers? And the dedicated CPU manufacturers.

Lanson replied to our question by saying the industry is driven by the consumer, and in particular by the mobile phone guys. He said it’s clearly a fight between the solid state guys and the mechanical hard drive guys. It’s pretty evident which party he thinks is going to win.
