This unit was developed as a 3.5-inch SCSi HDD for OEM in the office computer, compact general-purpose computer, and EWS market.
Technically, this unit was positioned as an enhanced, brushed-up version of the technology developed with the DK312C, and it was realized as a combination of a sputtered disk, MIG head and a sector servo system. Memory capacity was enhanced by about 1.7 times, from the previous 250MB to 418MB, and this accelerated competition to reduce bit cost.
