Decreasing Size, More-Demanding Performance Pace Disk-Drive IC Design

Read-Channel and servoloop IC subsystems provide increasing integration

Hard-disk drives (HDDs) are extremely sophisticated, highly integrated electromechanical designs. For years they have been trending toward ever-smaller size, calling for a continuing procession of new generations of high-performance components—mechanical structures, transducers, integrated-circuit ICs, and other electronic components.
