CMD to revisit RAID

Shrinks die for additional speed

CMD said that it will introduce a fresh architecture for external RAID products. At the same time, it said it would present its plans for IDE/Ultra ATA 66 semiconductor products at Comdex next week. The RAID technology, which CMD dubs Titan, will be the basis of a family of future products, the company said. It will include support for Fibre Channel and LVD Ultra-2 SCSI, and will also support LVD Ultra-3 SCSI when it is available. The Titan families will include better host and disk capabilities, redundancy models and a smaller form factor. The company's Ultra ATA 66 technology includes a die-shrunk version of its 670 USB host controller. The fresh rev, the 673B, provides increased immunity to noise, claimed CMD. It has developed the 673B, which will give greater immunity to noise, for the 3.3V portable and embedded design markets. ®
