Seoul, Korea – April 11, 2007 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a worldwide leader in digital consumer electronics and information technology, today announced development of its 7200rpm premium 2.5” hard drive series, SpinPoint MP1. Samsung’s SpinPoint MP1 series provides the industry’s highest density of 200 gigabyte (GB) at 7200rpm on a 2.5inch disk base with SATA interface. The MP1 series is designed for enterprise applications such as workstations, RAID (redundant array of independent drives) servers, and blade servers.

The SpinPoint MP1 series utilizes perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR), adopts a serial ATA 3.0 Gbps interface, and features native command queuing (NCQ) for the high performance. To protect the disk drive from vibration and shock, a rotary vibration controller (RVC) and an optional digital free fall sensor (FFS) have been implemented.

The RVC technology, first applied to the SpinPoint MP1 series, prevents the head from leaving track under severe vibration conditions and thereby reinforcing data reliability.

With the maximum density per disk at the industry’s highest 100GB per disk in 7200 rpm class 2.5” drives, the SpinPoint MP1 series comes in 80/ 120/ 160/ 200GB capacities with a supporting 8/16MB cache memory. Samples will be available in early May with mass production schedule in late May.
