This week at CES 2006 in Las Vegas, Hitachi will present the first working CE-ATA HDD running on an Intel platform.

CE-ATA was developed to facilitate the unique communication between small-form-factor hard drives and consumer electronic devices that increasingly require low-cost, high-capacity storage. The CE-ATA Consortium intends to accelerate the adoption of hard drives into portable CE devices by addressing CE-specific requirements such as low pin-count, low voltage, power efficiency, cost effectiveness and integration efficiency. The Hitachi Microdrive 3K8 is the first hard drive to realize this goal.
