Abstract

Storage devices require highly accurate positioning performance to cope with disturbance friction force and vibration. In this paper, a novel configuration of realizing a two-degree-of-freedom (2DOF) track following controller with a disturbance observer is proposed for large capacity FDDs with backward compatibility. The controller is designed using two position sensors, one of them is used to handle low density disks. Furthermore, a new open loop design method is applied to choose the stable parameter against unmodeled dynamics. The validity of the proposed scheme has been confirmed by experiments.
