(SDK) will start commercial production of 2.5-inch hard disk (HD) media with storage capacity of 100 gigabytes per disk in the third quarter of this year, using the innovative perpendicular magnetic recording
Heat is reduced, and track density has increased with the introduction of Laser Guided Magnetic Recording
The newly constructed lines focus on the production of HD media based on the new perpendicular magnetic recording
The technology behind SDLT is based on Laser Guided Magnetic Recording
(LGMR) technology, which blends optical and magnetic technologies to increase the number of recording tracks on the databearing surface of the media.
In June 2005, SDK also started world's first commercial production of HD media based on the perpendicular magnetic recording
technology, enabling a dramatic increase in storage capacity.
Quantum, for example, has improved the Magneto-Resistive Cluster (MRC) Heads by integrating them into the Pivoting Optical Servo (POS) as a Laser Guided Magnetic Recording
(LGMR) enabling technology.
In addition, the company plans to introduce 7,200 rpm HDDs for high-end PCs, as well as HDDs incorporating perpendicular magnetic recording
technology during the same fiscal year.
1899 marked the beginning of the first revolution in magnetic recording
technology as Valdemar Poulsen of Denmark invented and patented the first true magnetic recorder, the Telegraphone.
TOKYO, Feb 21, 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - Showa Denko (SDK; TSE:4004) will begin shipment of newly developed 3.5-inch HD media this year based on the Microwave Assisted Magnetic Recording
(MAMR) technology for next-generation hard disk drives (HDDs).
