Paper Abstract

A prototype of ultra small optical drive was studied and developed in order to see the feasibility of mobile application, which is targeted to be attachable into the PCMCIA II slot in small mobile devices. A new design and fabrication technology of optical flying head (OFH) for first surface MO recording was studied, and an effective OFH precisely equipped with high NA lens and MO coil was developed based on miniaturization technology. Design consideration of small form factor optical drive is discussed. Some technical issues and barriers in designing and manufacturing the OFH are introduced. Head-disk interface for reliability and flying stability on plastic disk media was tested and evaluated. Basic tracking and read-write performances in a test bed system were tested.
