Fluid dynamic bearing
(FDB) motors deliver a low acoustic rating and improved data integrity.
To ensure quiet operation in noise-sensitive desktop/workstation environments, Western Digital offers hard drives equipped with optional fluid dynamic bearing
Nidec said it plans to use the company as a new production base for a fluid dynamic bearing
type of spindle motor as the demand is rapidly shifting from a ball-bearing motor type.
Thanks to Seagate's SoftSonic fluid dynamic bearing
motor, it has low acoustic emissions of only 2.6 bels.
Toshiba's new drives also feature fluid dynamic bearing
(FDB) motor technology, which has been especially popular with PC OEMs looking to reduce ambient drive noise in mobile computing applications.
With both 5400 and 7200RPM speeds and the availability of Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) motors, this series is one of the fastest and quietest IDE desktop series in the industry today.
In addition, this series offers Silent Drive Technology with the implementation of Fluid Dynamic Bearing spindle motors.
The large fans with a 3-phase motor and fluid dynamic bearings
create less friction and consistent fan speed control in all configurations.
The 2.5-inch DK23DA offers a maximum storage capacity of 40GB while providing shock protection and Fluid Dynamic Bearings
(FDB) technologies that make for reliable, robust, quiet operation.
The company submitted a plan early this year to build an extension to produce fluid dynamic bearings
and spindle motors, parts for hard disk drives, but the extension was denied initially because it violates a local construction regulation.
