constant angular velocity
Jump to user comments
storage (CAV) A disk driving scheme in which the angularvelocity of the disk is kept constant. This means that the
linear velocity of the disk be larger when the reading or
writing the outer tracks. The disadvantage of this technique
is that the read/write speed varies from track to track.
However, as mechanical stability puts an upper limit on the
angular velocity (and not the linear velocity) this allows the
full potential of the drive is used.
