Description

This book will take you from basic academic knowledge about magnetics to a proficient understanding of the most recent advances in the technology. This book offers the latest information about disk technology, including: the fundamentals of magnetics, MIG heads, thin film heads, magnetoresistive heads, thin film media, electrical and mechanical integration of these components into a drive, and how to record writing and reading processes magnetically. You'll also learn about giant magnetoresistance, contact recording, and future disk drive industry developments. MAGNETIC DISK DRIVE TECHNOLOGY is an excellent guide for practitioners, researchers, and recent graduate engineers in the field of magnetics.
