Abstract

A hard disk drive (HDD) is very sensitive to shock. Increasing portability demands have led to increased HDD exposure to unexpected shocks. Therefore, the dynamic characteristics of an HDD were utilized to investigate the relative behavior of the disk and head stack assembly (HSA) during operational shock. A finite element model of HDD was constructed to simulate operational shock. This model included the spindle system, base, HSA, and disk. The relative behavior of the disk and HSA was analyzed using different bases with different stiffness. A drop test was performed to verify the simulation results. A modified base design was then proposed to protect against contact between the disk and HSA in HDD.
