 IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinnacle Micro Inc. (NASDAQ: PNCL) today announced the introduction of their new 1.3 gigabyte (GB) optical hard drive. The Sierra drive is the industry's fastest ECMA standard 1.3GB optical drive, utilizing a 25-megahertz processor that is twice the speed of competitors' optical systems. All data is stored on a single 5.25-inch removable optical cartridge.

 "The Sierra 1.3GB is the next generation of Pinnacle Micro optical systems that will expand the applications and demand for optical technology. We feel the market potential for the Sierra drive is very exciting," commented Scott Blum, executive vice president. Pinnacle's new Sierra 1.3GB optical hard drive is part of a new line of optical library systems ranging in storage capacity from 20 to 186 gigabytes and designed for mass on-line storage for Novell, MAC, and Sun NFS networks.
 Pinnacle Micro manufactures a complete line of optical drives, optical sub-systems, optical information storage systems and optical- based imaging systems.
