LWL4: MEMS Sensor for Hard Disk Glide Test


Characterization of pitch and roll motions of the slider in the hard disk gimbal system are important parameters in order to achieve higher aerial recording densities. This project describes a novel piezoresistive-type microsensor that could be directly mounted on the existing slider/gimbal system of a hard disk drive to simultaneously measure the pitch and roll angles of the slider.
