Evolving Disk Drive Storage Technology
Technology in the data storage manufacturing applications is evolving fast. Moving from unpatterned media to discrete track media (DTM) and looking ahead to heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) and bit patterned media (BPM), the need for purity and integrity in the process is critical. As patterns become more symmetrical and smaller, the tolerance for contamination in the process is significantly lower. Defect rates of just a few years ago are not acceptable today and in tomorrow’s manufacturing lines. New challenges are emerging that require a comprehensive approach to solve them.
Solving these challenges are at the heart of Entegris’ expertise. Removing microscopic and molecular level particles from process streams, securing the integrity of wafers and repeatability and reliability in process equipment contributes to the overall yield success in the disk and head manufacturing lines as well as in HDD assembly processes. Entegris is the comprehensive supplier of contamination control and data disk transport products for manufacturing and assembly processes. This focus provides makers of all types of data storage devices the ability to gain a competitive advantage and accelerate new manufacturing technology adoption.
