Transition curvature is a growing concern for high tracks per inch application. Due to low resolution from the playback transducer in cross track direction, the characterization of the transition edge is very difficult. This situation increases the engineering difficulty for writer pole design optimization and recording performance analysis. We have derived a simple transition shape model to study the transition curvature quantitatively. The complicated transition edge is simplified into one curving parameter. With such simplification, we are able to relate the transition curving effect with the cross track profile. In this paper, we will discuss the concept and analytical derivation of this model. A particular H/M combination is studied and its transition curvature is estimated. Compared with magnetic force microscope and micromagnetic modeling, this new approach has potential to become a practical spinstand or even Hard disk drive measurement if the W/R nonlinear effects are minimized
