Current generations of hard disk drives use a technique known as zoned constant angular velocity (ZCAV), taking advantage of the geometry to increase total disk capacity by varying the number of disk sectors per track with the distance from the spindle. A side eeect of this is that the transfer rate also varies with sector address. We analytically estimated… CONTINUE READING
