TUESDAY February 16, 2010
SCV Magnetics Chapter
Speaker: Dr. Edward Grochowski, Computer Storage Consultant
Time: Networking and pizza at 7:00 PM; Presentation at 7:30 PM
Cost: none
Place: Western Digital, 1710 Automation Parkway, San Jose
RSVP: not required

Todayâ??s hard disk drive has evolved through miniaturization into a small storage device with up to 2.5 Terabytes of storage, with the promise of multiterabyte products appearing in the very near future.? This storage device, based on reduced form factors and large capacity, is well suited for todayâ??s storage applications, from large server units to mobile PCâ??s and consumer based products.? The technology which made this storage device possible includes advanced read/write heads which now include PMR, TMR, thin film media, PRML data channels and many other features which have added to the usefulness of HDDâ??s while significantly reducing price per gigabyte.? An analysis of this technology will be given as well as projections of where newer advances could extend the applications of magnetic storage products to the future.? A comparison of HDD storage to alternative non-volatile technologies including Flash memories and MRAM devices will be discussed.? The challenges of advanced processing techniques will be outlined.? A major part of the presentation will include trend charts, with technical rationale, to assist in the projecting the future.
