To study the fundamental dynamic characteristics of a multi-pad slider for contact recording, we developed a thin-film piezoelectric acoustic emission array sensor on an Si-suspension with an array pattern similar to that of contact pads. Experiments showed that the sensitivity of the sensor is about 0.11 V/N (slider thickness: 0.2 mm) and that each array sensor designed here is not influenced by the acoustic waves which occur due to contact with other contact pads, so the contact or non-contact condition of each pad can be measured
