Paper Abstract

A high speed accessing 5.25-inch half-height MO ( magneto-optical ) disk drive has been developed. Average accessing time in the absence of latency is 26 ms. A split optical system with a swing-arm tracking actuator made it possible to realize such high speed accessing. In addition, this MO disk drive can provide the formatted data storage capacity of more than 300 MB.
