constant linear velocity
Jump to user comments
storage (CLV) A disk driving scheme in which the linearvelocity of the disk is kept constant. This requires that
the angular velocity of the disk be larger when the reading
or writing tracks closer to the axis. The advantage of this
technique is that the read/write speed is constant. However,
as mechanical stability puts an upper limit on the angular
velocity (and not the linear velocity) using the same linear
velocity throughout, i.e., using less then the maximal angular
velocity at outer tracks means that the full potential of the
drive is not used.
