Jeff Janukowicz, a strategic marketing manager in Agere's Storage division, will lead a symposium session focused on the technology behind PMR, and Dan Dolan Jr., senior product marketing manager with Agere, will discuss how a systems approach to designing chips can overcome the performance and cost challenges posed by hard disk drives utilizing PMR technology.
Rudiger Stroh, Executive Vice president and General Manager of Agere's Storage Division, said, "Today, PMR technology is responsible for areal density growth in leading edge disk drive products. The storage industry has learned a great deal and refined the technology for enhanced performance. The Agere speakers will be sharing with symposium attendees what we've learned, including some surprises, as PMR has become a reality."
Janukowicz and Dolan's session in the day-long symposium is scheduled for 12:45 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, 5101 Great America Parkway, in Santa Clara. PMR technology is increasing dramatically the areal density of today's hard disk drives, thereby boosting the data storage capacity of a wide range of electronic devices.
