    Abstract: Systems and methods for multi-dimensional mapping of binary data DNA sequences are described. In one embodiment, the method may include determining a current level of a first DNA base from a sequence of DNA bases based at least in part on a read process of the sequence, determining a current level of a second DNA base after the first DNA base and a current level of a third DNA base after the second DNA base, and decoding binary data from the sequence based at least in part on the determined current level of the first DNA base, the determined current level of the second DNA base, and/or the determined current level of the third DNA base.

  • Patent number: 10210899
    Abstract: A method for scanning for flaws on a magnetic recording medium is disclosed. The magnetic recording medium has a first set of nonconsecutive data tracks and a second set of nonconsecutive data tracks. The method includes writing a test pattern to only the first set of nonconsecutive data tracks of the magnetic recording medium, reading of the test pattern written to the first set of nonconsecutive data tracks, and identifying flaws within the first set of nonconsecutive data tracks and the second set of nonconsecutive data tracks based on the reading the test pattern.

  • Patent number: 10147445
    Abstract: One or more detectors detect data from respective one or more analog sources operable to read from a storage medium. A buffer pool is between the decoders and two or more detectors. The decoders are simultaneously operable, via the buffer pool, to independently decode the data from the one or more detectors.

  • Publication number: 20180301162
    Abstract: A recording head has a first magnetic writer and a second magnetic writer offset from the first magnetic writer in a downtrack and crosstrack direction. The recording head has leads configured to deliver respective first and second write and/or laser currents to the first and second writers. The first and second write and/or laser currents enable the first and second writers to simultaneously write to adjacent tracks of a magnetic disk.

  • Patent number: 10090010
    Abstract: A baseline performance of a disk drive is found based on a media speed and a bit aspect ratio of the drive. A parallelism architecture is chosen for the disk drive based on an end-use application of the drive. The parallelism architecture includes two heads capable of simultaneously accessing one or more disks of the disk drive. An increased performance of the disk drive is determined due to the parallelism architecture, and at least one of the media speed and bit aspect ratio are reduced such that a final drive performance with the parallelism architecture satisfies the baseline performance, the baseline performance being less than the increased performance. The reduction of the media speed and/or bit aspect ratio increases another capability of the drive over that of the equivalent drive.

  • Patent number: 10043543
    Abstract: In a device with first and second heads, the second head is held at a radial location over one or more disks via a second actuator that moves the second head. A position error of the second head is read while performing a seek with a first actuator, the first actuator moving the first head over the one or more disks. A mechanical transfer function is determined between the first actuator and the second actuator based on the position error of the second head. The mechanical transfer function is used to provide compensation for the second head via the second actuator in response to subsequent seek of the first actuator.

  • Patent number: 9928861
    Abstract: Performance data of two or more actuators of a storage device is determined. The actuators independently move respective two or more heads over one or more disks coupled to a spindle motor. The independent movement of the two or more heads causes coupling therebetween that affects tracking of the two or more heads. Based on the performance data, bit aspect ratios associated with each of the two or more heads are selected that minimize performance impacts due to the coupling.
