    This paper describes Serial Storage Architecture (SSA), a definition and general specification of a high-performance serial link for the attachment of input/output devices. An overview is given of the architecture itself, followed by a general description of the hardware implementation of a dual-port SSA node on a single chip. View full abstract»

    Data compression allows more efficient use of storage media and communication bandwidth, and standard compression offerings for tape storage have been well established since the late 1980s. Compression technology lowers the cost of storage without changing applications or data access methods. The desire to extend these cost/performance benefits to higher-data-rate media and broader media forms, su... View full abstract»

    At the heart of today's computer-aided engineering (CAE) revolution is finite element modeling (FEM). This paper presents a brief history of how FEM simulations interact with and have significant impact on the design process of storage devices. The discussion is limited to structural static and dynamic effects on head/disk assemblies (HDAs) and components. FEM is integral to the design process; it... View full abstract»

    The architectural complexity of advanced storage controllers has increased to a point at which architectural verification methods based on document inspections and reviews are no longer effective. To facilitate the architectural verification process, a high-performance simulator (TurboSim) has been developed for architectural-level verification. The TurboSim application includes a set of architect... View full abstract»

  • Charge-metering sampling circuits and their applications

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):631 - 640

    Charge-metering sampling circuits comprise a new CMOS circuit class for sampled analog data applications. They avoid some drawbacks of conventional sampling circuits without the use of operational amplifiers. They lightly load their inputs, may be cascaded without buffering to provide analog pipelining, and avoid charge injection errors. Application to linear and nonlinear digital-to-analog conver...
