This is in contrast to the story in magnetic disk where the areal density growth has slowed significantly with the associated slow down in the improvement in its cost of storage metric.
Since the size and number of disk platters are fixed in each defined disk drive format, areal density is really the only parameter that can be improved to increase storage capacity.
Seagate's performance demonstration showed perpendicular recording functioning at a record data rate of 125 Mbytes per second with an areal density of nearly 60 Gbits per square inch.
It is likely that the rate of data storage areal density increase in magnetic recording will start to drop gradually due to the greater difficulty in making the new technology work.
Continuing to increase areal density is an important step in making technologies such as the Personal History Machine an affordable reality.
As we announced in August, we anticipate our innovative design will soon be extended to an areal density of over 40 billion bits per square inch.
4) The world's highest commercially available areal density, as of June 5, 2006 (Toshiba data).
A key end-result or benefit of this dramatic areal density curve is that disc drive manufacturers have also been able to drive down the cost of the disc drives themselves because they can offer higher capacity disc drives using fewer platters, heads, and mechanical parts.
3 /PRNewswire/ -- Read-Rite Corporation (Nasdaq: RDRT) today announced a significant data storage breakthrough, demonstrating giant magnetoresistive (GMR) heads at an areal density of 26.
This areal density, demonstrated in laboratory testing, represents an increase of more than two-and-a-half times the areal density of today's highest-capacity products.
Striving to provide more capacity per dollar, disk drive manufacturers have invested heavily in increasing the areal density of their disks, with remarkable results.
We are pleased to be working with Guzik as we continue to push areal density beyond our record-setting 13.
