Table of Contents

Trends in Direct Access Storage Devices. Magnetic Recording for Direct Access Storage Devices. Formulas and Constraints. Capacity Increase by Data Banding. Interaction Between Platters and Read/Write Heads. Data Encoding for Magnetic Recording. Run-Length Limited Code (2, 7). Read/Write Channel. Access Servomechanism. Optical Versus Magnetic Recordi


Description

This book presents an exposition of the technology, design, organization, and structure of direct access storage devices (disk drives). It includes a discussion of the evolution of the technology (magnetic recording) and an assessment of other storage technologies, including optical recording. Examples of codes used in past implementations of disk drives as well as an application of disk drive usage dictated by reliability considerations are also included. The presentation assumes a minimum knowledge of magnetic recording, servomechanism design, and coding.
