Cirrus Logic announced a new chip for rewritable CD (CD-RW) drives that doubles their storage capacity. The new double-density encoder/decoder makes it possible to store 1.3 GB of data on a single CD-RW disc and boosts write and read speeds to 16x and 48x, respectively. The chip is intended to be used in upcoming double-density CD-RW drives being developed by Sony and Philips.
