Device Overview
1.1 Features
1.1.1 Functions and performance
The following features of the disk drive are described.
(1) Compact
The disk drive has up to 1 disk of 65 mm (2.5 inches) diameter, and its height is
9.5 mm (0.374 inch).
(2) Environmental Protection
The disk drive comply with the RoHS (Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous
Substances in electrical and electronic equipment) directive issued by European
Union (EU).
(3) Large capacity
The disk drive can record up to 80 GB (formatted) on one disk using the RLL
recording method and 30 recording zone technology. The disk drive has a
formatted capacity of 80 GB (MHW2080AT), 60 GB (MHW2060AT) and 40 GB
(MHW2040AT) respectively.
(4) High-speed Transfer rate
The disk drive (the MHW Series) has an internal data rate up to 56.4 MB/s. The
disk drive supports an external data rate up to 100 MB/s (U-DMA mode 5).
(5) Average positioning time
Use of a rotary voice coil motor in the head positioning mechanism greatly
increases the positioning speed. The average positioning time is 12 ms (at read).
1.1.2 Adaptability
(1) Power save mode
The power save mode feature for Idle operation, Standby and Sleep modes and
automatically power down by APM function makes the disk drive ideal for mobile
use where power consumption is a factor.
(2) Wide temperature range
The disk drive can be used over a wide temperature range (5 °C to 60 °C at DE
surface).
1-2
C141-E250
1.1 Features
(3) Low noise and vibration
In Ready status (while the device is waiting for any commands), the Sound Power
level of the disk drives in idle mode is 1.5 B. The Sound Pressure level is 16 dB,
as measured 0.3 m from the drive in Idle mode.
(4) High resistance against shock
The Load/Unload mechanism is highly resistant against non-operation shock up to
2
8820 m/s (900G).
1.1.3 Interface
(1) Connection to ATA interface
The disk drive has built-in controllers compatible with the ATA interface.
(2) Data buffer
The disk drive uses a data buffer to transfer data between the host and the disk
media.
In combination with the read-ahead cache system described in item (3) and the
write cache described in item (7), the buffer contributes to efficient I/O processing.
(3) Read-ahead cache system
After the execution of a disk read command, the disk drive automatically reads the
subsequent data block and writes it to the data buffer (read ahead operation). This
cache system enables fast data access. The next disk read command would normally
cause another disk access. But, if the read ahead data corresponds to the data
requested by the next read command, the data in the buffer can be transferred instead.
(4) Master/slave
The disk drive can be connected to ATA interface as daisy chain configuration.
Drive 0 is a master device, drive 1 is a slave device.
(5) Error correction and retry by ECC
If a recoverable error occurs, the disk drive itself attempts error recovery. The
ECC has improved buffer error correction for correctable data errors.
(6) Self-diagnosis
The disk drive has a diagnostic function to check operation of the controller and disk
drive. Executing a diagnostic function of the smart command invokes self-diagnosis.
C141-E250
1-3
Device Overview
(7) Write cache
When the disk drive receives a write command, the disk drive posts the command
completion at completion of transferring data to the data buffer completion of
writing to the disk media. This feature reduces the access time at writing.

factors, such as damage caused by handling, inappropriate operating
environments, defects in the power supply host system, or interface cable.
(2) Mean time to repair (MTTR)
The mean time to repair (MTTR) is 30 minutes or less, if repaired by a specialist
maintenance staff member.
(3) Service life
In situations where management and handling are correct, the disk drive requires
no overhaul for five years when the DE surface temperature is less than 48 °C.
When the DE surface temperature exceeds 48 °C, the disk drives requires no
overhaul for five years or 20,000 hours of operation, whichever occurs first.
Refer to item (3) in Subsection 3.2 for the measurement point of the DE surface
temperature. The operating conditions of Service life are based on the equal
conditions with MTBF.
(4) Data assurance in the event of power failure
Except for the data block being written to, the data on the disk media is assured in
the event of any power supply abnormalities. This does not include power supply
abnormalities during disk media initialization (formatting) or processing of
defects (alternative block assignment).
C141-E250
1-11
Device Overview
1.8 Error Rate
Known defects, for which alternative blocks can be assigned, are not included in
the error rate count below. It is assumed that the data blocks to be accessed are
evenly distributed on the disk media.
(1) Unrecoverable read error
Read errors that cannot be recovered by maximum read retries of drive without
user’s retry and ECC corrections shall occur no more than 1 time when reading
14
data of 10 bits. Read retries are executed according to the disk drive’s error
recovery procedure, and include read retries accompanying head offset operations.
(2) Positioning error
Positioning (seek) errors that can be recovered by one retry shall occur no more
7
than 10 times in 10 seek operations.
1.9 Media Defects
Defective sectors are replaced with alternates when the disk drive is formatted
prior to shipment from the factory (low level format). Thus, the hosts see a defectfree device.
Alternate sectors are automatically accessed by the disk drive. The user need not
be concerned with access to alternate sectors.
1.10 Load/Unload Function
The Load/Unload function is a mechanism that loads the head on the disk and
unloads the head from the disk.
The product supports a minimum of 600,000 Load/Unload cycles.
Unload is a normal head unloading operation and is executed by the operations
below:
1-12
•
Hard Reset
•
STANDBY command issued
•
STANDBY IMMEDIATE command issued
•
SLEEP command issued
•
IDLE IMMEDIATE command (with unload feature) issued
•
Power Mode shifted with APM/APS feature
C141-E250
1.11 Advanced Power Management (APM)
Emergency Unload other than Unload is performed when the power is shut down
while the heads are still loaded on the disk.
The product supports the Emergency Unload a minimum of 20,000 times.
When the power is shut down, the controlled Unload cannot be executed.
Therefore, the number of Emergency other than Unload is specified.
1.10.1 Recommended power-off sequence
We recommend cutting the power supply of the HDD for this device after the
Head Unload operation completes. The recommended power supply cutting
sequence for this device is as follows:
1) Disk Flush
Flush Cache command execution.
2) Head Unload
Standby Immediate command execution.
3) Wait Status
Checking whether bit 7 of the status register was set to '0'.
(wait to complete STANDBY IMMEDIATE command)
4) HDD power supply cutting
1.11 Advanced Power Management (APM)
The disk drive automatically shifts to the power saving mode according to the
setting of the APM mode under the idle condition.
The APM mode can be chosen with a Sector Count register of the SET
FEATURES (EF) command.
The disk drive complies with the three kinds of APM modes that a command from
the host is required.
FR = 05h : Enable APM
SC = C0h - FEh :
Mode-0 Active Idle → Low Power Idle
SC = 80h - BFh :
Mode-1 Active Idle → Low Power Idle (Default)
SC = 01h - 7Fh :
Mode-2 Active Idle → Low Power Idle → Standby
FR = 85h : Disable APM (Set Mode-0)
C141-E250

Device Overview
Active Idle:
The head is in a position of extreme inner in disk
medium. (VCM Lock)
Low Power Idle:
The head is unloaded from disk.
The spindle motor rotates.
Standby:
The spindle motor stops.
In APM Mode-1, which is the APM default mode, the operation status shifts till it
finally reaches "Low Power Idle."

Power Idle in 15 minutes.
Mode-1: Mode shifts from Active condition to Active Idle in 0.1-0.2 seconds and
to Low Power Idle in 10.0-27.5 seconds.
Mode-2: Mode shifts from Active condition to Active Idle in 0.1-0.2 seconds and
to Low Power Idle in 10.0-27.5 seconds. After 10.0-40.0 seconds in
Low Power Idle, the mode shifts to standby.
Remark:
The default values of these settings are reflected in the WORD 91 values of the
IDENTIFY DEVICE command. Also, the APM mode is initialized to Mode-1
(default value) by hardware reset and at power-off.
The above-mentioned is time until shifting to each power mode based on point that
the drive becomes a command waiting state.

System Configuration
This chapter describes the internal configurations of the hard disk drives and the
configuration of the systems in which they operate.
C141-E250
2-1
Device Configuration
2.1 Device Configuration
Figure 2.1 shows the disk drive. The disk drive consists of a disk enclosure (DE),
read/write preamplifier, and controller PCA. The disk enclosure contains the disk
media, heads, spindle motor, actuator, and a circulating air filter.
Figure 2.1 Disk drive outer view
(1) Disk
The outer diameter of the disk is 65 mm. The inner diameter is 20 mm.
(2) Head
The heads are of the load/unload (L/UL) type. The head unloads the disk out of
while the disk is not rotating and loads on the disk when the disk starts.
(3) Spindle motor
The disks are rotated by a direct drive Sensor-less DC motor.
(4) Actuator
The actuator uses a revolving voice coil motor (VCM) structure which consumes
low power and generates very little heat. The head assembly at the edge of the
actuator arm is controlled and positioned by feedback of the servo information
read by the read/write head. If the power is not on or if the spindle motor is
stopped, the head assembly stays on the ramp out of the disk and is fixed by a
mechanical lock.
(5) Air circulation system
The disk enclosure (DE) is sealed to prevent dust and dirt from entering. The disk
enclosure features a closed loop air circulation system that relies on the blower
effect of the rotating disk. This system continuously circulates the air through the
circulation filter to maintain the cleanliness of the air within the disk enclosure.
2-2
C141-E250
2.2 System Configuration
(6) Read/write circuit
The read/write circuit uses a LSI chip for the read/write preamplifier. It improves
data reliability by preventing errors caused by external noise.
(7) Controller circuit
The controller circuit consists of an LSI chip to improve reliability. The highspeed microprocessor unit (MPU) achieves a high-performance AT controller.
2.2 System Configuration
2.2.1 ATA interface
Figures 2.2 and 2.3 show the ATA interface system configuration. The drive has a
44pin PC AT interface connector and supports PIO mode 4 transfer at 16.6 MB/s,
Multiword DMA mode 2 transfer at 16.6 MB/s and also U-DMA mode 5 (100
MB/s).

Note:
When the drive that is not conformed to ATA is connected to the disk drive above
configuration, the operation is not guaranteed.
Figure 2.3 2 drives configuration
HA (host adaptor) consists of address decoder, driver, and receiver.
ATA is an abbreviation of “AT attachment”. The disk drive is
conformed to the ATA-6/ATA-7 interface.
At high-speed data transfer (PIO mode 4 or DMA mode 2 U-DMA
mode 5), occurrence of ringing or crosstalk of the signal lines (AT
bus) between the HA and the disk drive may be a great cause of the
obstruction of system reliability. Thus, it is necessary that the
capacitance of the signal lines including the HA and cable does not
exceed the ATA-6/ATA-7 standard, and the cable length between
the HA and the disk drive should be as short as possible.
No need to push the top cover of the disk drive. If the over-power
worked, the cover could be contacted with the spindle motor. Thus,
that could be made it the cause of failure.

(4) Ambient temperature
The temperature conditions for a disk drive mounted in a cabinet refer to the
ambient temperature at a point 3 cm from the disk drive. The ambient
temperature must satisfy the temperature conditions described in Section 1.4, and
the airflow must be considered to prevent the DE surface temperature from
exceeding 60 °C.
Provide air circulation in the cabinet such that the PCA side, in particular,
receives sufficient cooling. To check the cooling efficiency, measure the surface
temperatures of the DE. Regardless of the ambient temperature, this surface
temperature must meet the standards listed in Table 3.1. Figure 3.4 shows the
temperature measurement point.

For the host interface cable, use a ribbon cable. A twisted cable or a
cable with wires that have become separated from the ribbon may
cause crosstalk between signal lines. This is because the interface is
designed for ribbon cables and not for cables carrying differential
signals.

electrical circuit blocks.
C141-E250

Theory of Device Operation
4.1 Outline
This chapter consists of two parts. First part (Section 4.2) explains mechanical
assemblies of the disk drive. Second part (Sections 4.3 through 4.7) explains a
servo information recorded in the disk drive and drive control method.
4.2 Subassemblies
The disk drive consists of a disk enclosure (DE) and printed circuit assembly
(PCA).
The DE contains all movable parts in the disk drive, including the disk, spindle,
actuator, read/write head, and air filter. For details, see Subsections 4.2.1 to 4.2.4.
The PCA contains the control circuits for the disk drive. The disk drive has one
PCA. For details, see Sections 4.3.
4.2.1 Disk
The DE contains disks with an outer diameter of 65 mm and an inner diameter of
20 mm.
Servo data is recorded on each cylinder (total 172). Servo data written at factory is
read out by the read head. For servo data, see Section 4.7.
4.2.2 Spindle
The spindle consists of a disk stack assembly and spindle motor. The disk stack
assembly is activated by the direct drive sensor-less DC spindle motor, which has
a speed of 4,200 rpm ±1%. The spindle is controlled with detecting a PHASE
signal generated by counter electromotive voltage of the spindle motor at starting.
4.2.3 Actuator
The actuator consists of a voice coil motor (VCM) and a head carriage. The VCM
moves the head carriage along the inner or outer edge of the disk. The head
carriage position is controlled by feeding back the difference of the target position
that is detected and reproduced from the servo information read by the read/write
head.
4-2
C141-E250
4.3 Circuit Configuration
4.2.4 Air filter
There are two types of air filters: a breather filter and a circulation filter.
The breather filter makes an air in and out of the DE to prevent unnecessary
pressure around the spindle when the disk starts or stops rotating. When disk
drives are transported under conditions where the air pressure changes a lot,
filtered air is circulated in the DE.
The circulation filter cleans out dust and dirt from inside the DE. The disk drive
cycles air continuously through the circulation filter through an enclosed loop air
cycle system operated by a blower on the rotating disk.
4.3 Circuit Configuration
Figure 4.1 shows the power supply configuration of the disk drive, and Figure 4.2
shows the disk drive circuit configuration.
(1) Read/write circuit
The read/write circuit consists of two circuits; read/write preamplifier (PreAMP)
and read channel (RDC).
The PreAMP consists of the write current switch circuit, that flows the write
current to the head coil, and the voltage amplifier circuit, that amplitudes the read
output from the head.
The RDC is the read demodulation circuit using the Modified Extended Partial
Response (MEEPR), and contains the Viterbi detector, programmable filter,
adaptable transversal filter, times base generator, data separator circuits, RLL (Run
Length Limited) encoder and servo demodulation circuit.
(2) Servo circuit
The position and speed of the voice coil motor are controlled by closed-loop servo
using the servo information recorded on the data surface. The servo information is
an analog signal converted to digital for processing by a MPU and then
reconverted to an analog signal for control of the voice coil motor.
The MPU precisely sets each head on the track according on the servo information
on the media surface.
(3) Spindle motor driver circuit
The circuit measures the interval of a PHASE signal generated by counterelectromotive voltage of a motor and controls the motor speed comparing target
speed.

4.4 Power-on Sequence
Figure 4.3 describes the operation sequence of the disk drive at power-on. The
outline is described below.
a)
After the power is turned on, the disk drive executes the MPU bus test,
internal register read/write test, and work RAM read/write test. When the
self-diagnosis terminates successfully, the disk drive starts the spindle motor.
b) The disk drive executes self-diagnosis (data buffer read/write test) after
enabling response to the ATA bus.
c)
After confirming that the spindle motor has reached rated speed, the head
assembly is loaded on the disk.
d) The disk drive positions the heads onto the SA area and reads out the system
information.
e)
The drive becomes ready. The host can issue commands.
f)
The disk drive executes self -calibration. This collects data for VCM torque
and mechanical external forces applied to the actuator, and updates the
calibrating value.

4.5 Self-calibration
4.5 Self-calibration
The disk drive occasionally performs self-calibration in order to sense and
calibrate mechanical external forces on the actuator, and VCM torque. This
enables precise seek and read/write operations.
4.5.1 Self-calibration contents
(1) Sensing and compensating for external forces
The actuator suffers from torque due to the FPC forces and winds accompanying
disk revolution. The torque varies with the disk drive and the cylinder where the
head is positioned. To execute stable fast seek operations, external forces are
occasionally sensed.
The firmware of the drive measures and stores the force (value of the actuator
motor drive current) that balances the torque for stopping head stably. This
includes the current offset in the power amplifier circuit and DAC system.
The forces are compensated by adding the measured value to the specified current
value to the power amplifier. This makes the stable servo control.
To compensate torque varying by the cylinder, the disk is divided into 13 areas
from the innermost to the outermost circumference and the compensating value is
measured at the measuring cylinder on each area at factory calibration. The
measured values are stored in the SA cylinder. In the self-calibration, the
compensating value is updated using the value in the SA cylinder.
(2) Compensating open loop gain
Torque constant value of the VCM has dispersion for each drive, and varies
depending on the cylinder that the head is positioned. To realize the high speed
seek operation, the value that compensates torque constant value change and loop
gain change of the whole servo system due to temperature change is measured and
stored.
For sensing, the firmware mixes the disturbance signal to the position signal at the
state that the head is positioned to any cylinder. The firmware calculates the loop
gain from the position signal and stores the compensation value against to the
target gain as ratio.
For compensating, the direction current value to the power amplifier is multiplied
by the compensation value. By this compensation, loop gain becomes constant
value and the stable servo control is realized.
To compensate torque constant value change depending on cylinder, whole
cylinders from most inner to most outer cylinder are divided into 13 partitions at
calibration in the factory, and the compensation data is measured for representative
cylinder of each partition. This measured value is stored in the SA area. The
compensation value at self-calibration is calculated using the value in the SA area.
C141-E250
4-7
Theory of Device Operation
4.5.2 Execution timing of self-calibration
Self-calibration is performed once when power is turned on. After that, the disk
drive does not perform self-calibration until it detects an error.
That is, self-calibration is performed each time one of the following events occur:
•
In the case that the disk drive starts up normally, the first part of selfcalibration starts after a lapse of 100 msec. The execution of first part is about
150 msec. length. The remains is executed thereafter the transfer to ActiveIdle state which takes about 200 msec.
The latter is interrupted when the disk drive receives a Host command, and it
resumes after next transfer to Active-Idle state.
•
The number of retries to write or seek data reaches the specified value.
•
The error rate of data reading, writing, or seeking becomes lower than the
specified value.
4.5.3 Command processing during self-calibration
This enables the host to execute the command without waiting for a long time,
even when the disk drive is performing self-calibration. The command execution
wait time is about maximum 72 ms.
When the error rate of data reading, writing, or seeking becomes lower than the
specified value, self-calibration is performed to maintain disk drive stability.
If the disk drive receives a command execution request from the host while
performing self-calibration, it stops the self-calibration and starts to execute the
command. In other words, if a disk read or write service is necessary, the disk
drive positions the head to the track requested by the host, reads or writes data, and
then restarts calibration after about 3 seconds.
If the error rate recovers to a value exceeding the specified value, self-calibration
is not performed.

C141-E250
4.6 Read/write Circuit
4.6 Read/write Circuit
The read/write circuit consists of the read/write preamplifier (PreAMP), the write
circuit, the read circuit, and the time base generator in the read channel (RDC).
Figure 4.4 is a block diagram of the read/write circuit.
4.6.1 Read/write preamplifier (PreAMP)
PreAMP equips a read preamplifier and a write current switch, that sets the bias
current to the MR device and the current in writing. Each channel is connected to
each data head, and PreAMP switches channel by serial I/O. In the event of any
abnormalities, including a head short-circuit or head open circuit, the write unsafe
signal is generated so that abnormal write does not occur.
4.6.2 Write circuit
The write data is output from the hard disk controller (HDC) and sent to the RDC.
The write data is sent to the PreAMP as differential signal, and the data is written
onto the media.
(1) Write precompensation
Write precompensation compensates, during a write process, for write nonlinearity generated at reading.
Figure 4.4 Read/write circuit block diagram
C141-E250
4-9
Theory of Device Operation
4.6.3 Read circuit
The head read signal from the PreAMP is regulated by the automatic gain control
(AGC) circuit. Then the output is converted into the sampled read data pulse by
the programmable filter circuit and the flash digitizer circuit. This signal is
converted into the read data by the ENDEC circuit based on the read data
maximum-likelihood-detected by the Viterbi detection circuit.
(1) AGC circuit
The AGC circuit automatically regulates the output amplitude to a constant value
even when the input amplitude level fluctuates. The AGC amplifier output is
maintained at a constant level even when the head output fluctuates due to the
head characteristics or outer/inner head positions.
(2) Programmable filter circuit
The programmable filter circuit has a low-pass filter function that eliminates
unnecessary high frequency noise component and a high frequency boost-up
function that equalizes the waveform of the read signal.
Cut-off frequency of the low-pass filter and boost-up gain are controlled from the
register in read channel block. The MPU optimizes the cut-off frequency and
boost-up gain according to the transfer frequency of each zone.
Figure 4.5 shows the frequency characteristic sample of the programmable filter.

4.6 Read/write Circuit
(3) FIR circuit
This circuit is 10-tap sampled analog transversal filter circuit that equalizes the
head read signal to the Modified Extended Partial Response (MEEPR) waveform.
(4) A/D converter circuit
This circuit changes Sampled Read Data Pulse from the FIR circuit into Digital
Read Data.
(5) Viterbi detection circuit
The sample hold waveform output from the flash digitizer circuit is sent to the
Viterbi detection circuit. The Viterbi detection circuit demodulates data according
to the survivor path sequence.
4.6.4 Digital PLL circuit
The drive uses constant density recording to increase total capacity. This is
different from the conventional method of recording data with a fixed data transfer
rate at all data area. In the constant density recording method, data area is divided
into zones by radius and the data transfer rate is set so that the recording density of
the inner cylinder of each zone is nearly constant. The drive divides data area into
30 zones to set the data transfer rate.
The MPU set the data transfer rate setup data (SD/SC) to the RDC that includes
the Digital PLL circuit to change the data transfer rate.

4.7 Servo Control
The actuator motor and the spindle motor are submitted to servo control. The
actuator motor is controlled for moving and positioning the head to the track
containing the desired data. To turn the disk at a constant velocity, the actuator
motor is controlled according to the servo data that is written on the data side
beforehand.

(1) Microprocessor unit (MPU)
The MPU executes startup of the spindle motor, movement to the reference
cylinder, seek to the specified cylinder, and calibration operations.
The main internal operations of the MPU are shown below.
a.
Spindle motor start
Starts the spindle motor and accelerates it to normal speed when power is
applied.
b.
Move head to reference cylinder
Drives the VCM to position the head at the any cylinder in the data area. The
logical initial cylinder is at the outermost circumference (cylinder 0).
c.
Seek to specified cylinder
Drives the VCM to position the head to the specified cylinder.
d.
Calibration
Senses and stores the thermal offset between heads and the mechanical forces
on the actuator, and stores the calibration value.
(2) Servo burst capture circuit
The servo burst capture circuit reproduces signals (position signals) that indicate
the head position from the servo data on the data surface. From the servo area on
the data area surface, via the data head, the burst signals of EVEN1, ODD, EVEN2
are output as shown in Figure 4.8 in subsequent to the servo mark, gray code that
indicates the cylinder position, and index information. The servo signals do A/Dconvert by Fourier-demodulator in the servo burst capture circuit. At that time the
AGC circuit is in hold mode. The A/D converted data is recognized by the MPU as
position information.
(3) D/A converter (DAC)
The control program calculates the specified data value (digital value) of the VCM
drive current, and the value is converted from digital-to-analog so that an analog
output voltage is sent to the power amplifier.
(4) Power amplifier
The power amplifier feeds currents, corresponding to the DAC output signal
voltage to the VCM.
(5) Spindle motor control circuit
The spindle motor control circuit controls the sensor-less spindle motor. A spindle
driver IC with a built-in PLL circuit that is on a hardware unit controls the sensorless spindle motor.

(6) Driver circuit
The driver circuit is a power amplitude circuit that receives signals from the
spindle motor control circuit and feeds currents to the spindle motor.

C141-E250
4-17
Theory of Device Operation
4.7.4 Actuator motor control
The voice coil motor (VCM) is controlled by feeding back the servo data recorded
on the data surface. The MPU fetches the position sense data on the servo frame at
a constant interval of sampling time, executes calculation, and updates the VCM
drive current.
The servo control of the actuator includes the operation to move the head to the
reference cylinder, the seek operation to move the head to the target cylinder to
read or write data, and the track-following operation to position the head onto the
target track.
(1) Operation to move the head to the reference cylinder
The MPU moves the head to the reference cylinder when the power is turned. The
reference cylinder is in the data area.
When power is applied the heads are moved from the outside of media to the
normal servo data zone in the following sequence:
a)
Micro current is fed to the VCM to press the head against the outer direction.
b) The head is loaded on the disk.
c)
When the servo mark is detected the head is moved slowly toward the inner
circumference at a constant speed.
d) If the head is stopped at the reference cylinder from there. Track following
control starts.
(2) Seek operation
Upon a data read/write request from the host, the MPU confirms the necessity of
access to the disk. If a read/write instruction is issued, the MPU seeks the desired
track.
The MPU feeds the VCM current via the D/A converter and power amplifier to
move the head. The MPU calculates the difference (speed error) between the
specified target position and the current position for each sampling timing during
head moving. The MPU then feeds the VCM drive current by setting the
calculated result into the D/A converter. The calculation is digitally executed by
the firmware. When the head arrives at the target cylinder, the track is followed.
(3) Track following operation
Except during head movement to the reference cylinder and seek operation under
the spindle rotates in steady speed, the MPU does track following control. To
position the head at the center of a track, the DSP drives the VCM by feeding
micro current. For each sampling time, the VCM drive current is determined by
filtering the position difference between the target position and the position
clarified by the detected position sense data. The filtering includes servo
compensation. These are digitally controlled by the firmware.
4-18
C141-E250
4.7 Servo Control
4.7.5 Spindle motor control
Hall-less three-phase twelve-pole motor is used for the spindle motor, and the 3phase full/half-wave analog current control circuit is used as the spindle motor
driver (called SVC hereafter). The firmware operates on the MPU manufactured
by Fujitsu. The spindle motor is controlled by sending several signals from the
MPU to the SVC. There are three modes for the spindle control; start mode,
acceleration mode, and stable rotation mode.
(1) Start mode
When power is supplied, the spindle motor is started in the following sequence:
a)
After the power is turned on, the MPU sends a signal to the SVC to charge the
charge pump capacitor of the SVC. The charged amount defines the current
that flows in the spindle motor.
b) When the charge pump capacitor is charged enough, the MPU sets the SVC to
the motor start mode. Then, a current (approx. 0.3 A) flows into the spindle
motor.
It moves to c) or e) step depending on the condition of spindle motor. It is
treated as the stop condition, it moves to the step c). Whereas, it is treated as
the free-wheeling condition, it moves to the step e).
c)
The phase of the current flowed in the motor is changed in the order of (Vphase to U-phase), (W-phase to U-phase), (W-phase to V-phase), (U-phase to
V-phase), (U-phase to W-phase), and (V-phase to W-phase) (after that,
repeating this order).
The above operations mean the generation of rotational magnetic field.
d) During phase switching, the spindle motor starts rotating in low speed, and
generates a back electromotive force. The SVC detects this back
electromotive force and reports to the MPU using a PHASE signal for speed
detection.
e)
The MPU is waiting for a PHASE signal. When no phase signal is sent for a
specific period, the MPU resets the SVC and starts from the beginning. When
a PHASE signal is sent, the SVC enters the acceleration mode.
(2) Acceleration mode
In this mode, the MPU stops the phase switching to the SVC. The SVC starts a
phase switching by itself based on the back electromotive force. Then, rotation of
the spindle motor accelerates. The MPU calculates a rotational speed of the
spindle motor based on the PHASE signal from the SVC, and waits till the
rotational speed reaches 4,200 rpm. When the rotational speed reaches 4,200 rpm,
the SVC enters the stable rotation mode.
(3) Stable rotation mode
The SVC builds the PLL circuit into, and to become the rotational speed of the
target, controls a stable rotation with hardware.
The firmware calculates time of one rotation from PHASE signal. PHASE signal is
outputted from the SVC. And the firmware observes an abnormal rotation.

[Signal]
DMARQ
[I/O]
[Description]
O
This signal is used for DMA transfer between the host system and
the device. The device asserts this signal when the device
completes the preparation of DMA data transfer to the host system
(at reading) or from the host system (at writing).
The direction of data transfer is controlled by the DIOR and
DIOW signals. This signal hand shakes with the DMACK-signal.
In other words, the device negates the DMARQ signal after the
host system asserts the DMACK signal. When there is other data
to be transferred, the device asserts the DMARQ signal again.
When the DMA data transfer is performed, IOCS16-, CS0- and
CS1- signals are not asserted. The DMA data transfer is a 16-bit
data transfer.
+5 VDC
I
+5 VDC power supplying to the device.
GND
-
Grounded signal at each signal wire.
Note:
“I” indicates input signal from the host to the device.
“O” indicates output signal from the device to the host.
“I/O” indicates common output or bi-directional signal between the host and
the device.
5.2 Logical Interface
The device can operate for command execution in either address-specified mode;
cylinder-head-sector (CHS) or Logical block address (LBA) mode. The
IDENTIFY DEVICE information indicates whether the device supports the LBA
mode. When the host system specifies the LBA mode by setting bit 6 in the
Device/Head register to 1, HS3 to HS0 bits of the Device/Head register indicates
the head No. under the LBA mode, and all bits of the Cylinder High, Cylinder
Low, and Sector Number registers are LBA bits.
The sector No. under the LBA mode proceeds in the ascending order with the start
point of LBA0 (defined as follows).
LBA0 = [Cylinder 0, Head 0, Sector 1]
Even if the host system changes the assignment of the CHS mode by the
INITIALIZE DEVICE PARAMETER command, the sector LBA address is not
changed.
LBA = [((Cylinder No.) × (Number of head) + (Head No.)) × (Number of
sector/track)] + (Sector No.) − 1

Notes:
1.
The Data register for read or write operation can be accessed by 16 bit data
bus (DATA0 to DATA15).
2.
The registers for read or write operation other than the Data registers can be
accessed by 8 bit data bus (DATA0 to DATA7).
3.
When reading the Drive Address register, bit 7 is high-impedance state.
4.
H indicates signal level High and L indicates signal level Low.
There are two methods for specifying the LBA mode. One method is to
specify the LBA mode with 28-bit address information, and the other is to
specify it with 48-bit address information (command of EXT system). If the
LBA mode is specified with 28-bit address information, the Device/Head,
C141-E250
5-7
Interface
Cylinder High, Cylinder Low, Sector Number registers indicate LBA bits 27
to 24, bits 23 to 16, bits 15 to 8, and bits 7 to 0, respectively.
If the LBA mode is specified with 48-bit address information, the Cylinder
High, Cylinder Low, Sector Number registers are set twice. In the first
time, the registers indicate LBA bits 47 to 40, bits 39 to 32, and bits 31 to
24, respectively. In the second time, the registers indicate LBA bits 23 to
16, bits 15 to 8, and bits 7 to 0, respectively.
5.2.2 Command block registers
(1) Data register (X’1F0’)
The Data register is a 16-bit register for data block transfer between the device and
the host system. Data transfer mode is PIO or DMA mode.
(2) Error register (X’1F1’)
The Error register indicates the status of the command executed by the device.
The contents of this register are valid when the ERR bit of the Status register is 1.
This register contains a diagnostic code after power is turned on, a reset, or the
EXECUTIVE DEVICE DIAGNOSTIC command is executed.

Error register of the master device is valid under two devices (master
and slave) configuration. If the slave device fails, the master device
posts X’80’ OR (the diagnostic code) with its own status (X’01’ to
X’06’).
However, when the host system selects the slave device, the diagnostic
code of the slave device is posted.
(3) Features register (X’1F1’)
The Features register provides specific feature to a command. For instance, it is
used with SET FEATURES command to enable or disable caching.
(4) Sector Count register (X’1F2’)
The Sector Count register indicates the number of sectors of data to be transferred
in a read or write operation between the host system and the device. When the
value in this register is X’00’, the sector count is 256. With the EXT system
command, the sector count is 65536 when value of this register is X'00' in the first
setting and X'00' in the second setting.
When this register indicates X’00’ at the completion of the command execution,
this indicates that the command is completed successfully. If the command is not
completed successfully, this register indicates the number of sectors to be
transferred to complete the request from the host system. That is, this register
indicates the number of remaining sectors that the data has not been transferred
due to the error.
The contents of this register have other definition for the following commands;
INITIALIZE DEVICE PARAMETERS, SET FEATURES, IDLE, STANDBY and
SET MULTIPLE MODE.

(5) Sector Number register (X’1F3’)
The contents of this register indicate the starting sector number for the subsequent
command. The sector number should be between X’01’ and [the number of
sectors per track defined by INITIALIZE DEVICE PARAMETERS command.
Under the LBA mode, this register indicates LBA bits 7 to 0.
Under the LBA mode of the EXT system command, LBA bits 31 to 24 are set in
the first setting, and LBA bits 7 to 0 are set in the second setting.
(6) Cylinder Low register (X’1F4’)
The contents of this register indicate low-order 8 bits of the starting cylinder
address for any disk-access.
At the end of a command, the contents of this register are updated to the current
cylinder number.
Under the LBA mode, this register indicates LBA bits 15 to 8.
Under the LBA mode of the EXT system command, LBA bits 39 to 32 are set in
the first setting, and LBA bits 15 to 8 are set in the second setting.
(7) Cylinder High register (X’1F5’)
The contents of this register indicate high-order 8 bits of the disk-access start
cylinder address.
At the end of a command, the contents of this register are updated to the current
cylinder number. The high-order 8 bits of the cylinder address are set to the
Cylinder High register.
Under the LBA mode, this register indicates LBA bits 23 to 16.
Under the LBA mode of the EXT system command, LBA bits 47 to 40 are set in
the first setting, and LBA bits 23 to 16 are set in the second setting.

(9) Status register (X’1F7’)
The contents of this register indicate the status of the device. The contents of this
register are updated at the completion of each command. When the BSY bit is
cleared, other bits in this register should be validated within 400 ns. When the
BSY bit is 1, other bits of this register are invalid. When the host system reads this
register while an interrupt is pending, it is considered to be the Interrupt
Acknowledge (the host system acknowledges the interrupt). Any pending interrupt
is cleared (negating INTRQ signal) whenever this register is read.

- Bit 7:
Busy (BSY) bit. This bit is set whenever the Command register is
accessed. Then this bit is cleared when the command is completed.
However, even if a command is being executed, this bit is 0 while data
transfer is being requested (DRQ bit = 1). When BSY bit is 1, the host
system should not write the command block registers. If the host
system reads any command block register when BSY bit is 1, the
contents of the Status register are posted. This bit is set by the device
under following conditions:
(a) Within 400 ns after RESET- is negated or SRST is set in the
Device Control register, the BSY bit is set. The BSY bit is
cleared, when the reset process is completed.
The BSY bit is set for no longer than 15 seconds after the IDD
accepts reset.
(b) Within 400 ns from the host system starts writing to the Command
register.
(c) Within 5 µs following transfer of 512 bytes data during execution
of the READ SECTOR(S), WRITE SECTOR(S), or WRITE
BUFFER command.
- Bit 6:
Device Ready (DRDY) bit. This bit indicates that the device is capable
to respond to a command.
The IDD checks its status when it receives a command. If an error is
detected (not ready state), the IDD clears this bit to 0. This is cleared
to 0 at power-on and it is cleared until the rotational speed of the
spindle motor reaches the steady speed.
- Bit 5:
The Device Write Fault (DF) bit. This bit indicates that a device fault
(write fault) condition has been detected.
If a write fault is detected during command execution, this bit is
latched and retained until the device accepts the next command or
reset.
- Bit 4:
Device Seek Complete (DSC) bit. This bit indicates that the device
heads are positioned over a track.
In the IDD, this bit is always set to 1 after the spin-up control is
completed.

(10) Command register (X’1F7’)
The Command register contains a command code being sent to the device. After
this register is written, the command execution starts immediately.
Table 5.3 lists the executable commands and their command codes. This table
also lists the necessary parameters for each command which are written to certain
registers before the Command register is written.
5.2.3 Control block registers
(1) Alternate Status register (X’3F6’)
The Alternate Status register contains the same information as the Status register
of the command block register.
The only difference from the Status register is that a read of this register does not
imply Interrupt Acknowledge and INTRQ signal is not reset.

If HOB = 1, LBA bits 47 to 24 and the higher-order 8 bits of the sector
count are displayed in the task register.
If HOB = 0, LBA bits 23 to 0 and the lower-order 8 bits of the sector
count are displayed in the task register.
- Bit 2:
Software Reset (SRST) is the host software reset bit. When this bit is
set, the device is held reset state. When two devices are daisy chained
on the interface, setting this bit resets both devices simultaneously.
The slave device is not required to execute the DASP- handshake.
- Bit 1:
nIEN bit enables an interrupt (INTRQ signal) from the device to the
host. When this bit is 0 and the device is selected, an interruption
(INTRQ signal) can be enabled through a tri-state buffer. When this
bit is 1 or the device is not selected, the INTRQ signal is in the highimpedance state.
5.3 Host Commands
The host system issues a command to the device by writing necessary parameters
in related registers in the command block and writing a command code in the
Command register.
The device can accept the command when the BSY bit is 0 (the device is not in the
busy status).
The host system can halt the uncompleted command execution only at execution
of hardware or software reset.
When the BSY bit is 1 or the DRQ bit is 1 (the device is requesting the data
transfer) and the host system writes to the command register, the correct device
operation is not guaranteed.

5.3 Host Commands
(2) READ SECTOR(S) (X’20’ or X’21’)
This command reads data of sectors specified in the Sector Count register from the
address specified in the Device/Head, Cylinder High, Cylinder Low and Sector
Number registers. Number of sectors can be specified from 1 to 256 sectors. To
specify 256 sectors reading, ‘00’ is specified. For the DRQ, INTRQ, and BSY
protocols related to data transfer, see Subsection 5.4.1.
If the head is not on the track specified by the host, the device performs an implied
seek. After the head reaches to the specified track, the device reads the target
sector.
If an error occurs, retry reads are attempted to read the target sector before
reporting an error, irrespective of the R bit setting.
The DRQ bit of the Status register is always set prior to the data transfer regardless
of an error condition.
Upon the completion of the command execution, command block registers contain
the cylinder, head, and sector addresses (in the CHS mode) or logical block
address (in the LBA mode) of the last sector read.
If an unrecoverable error occurs in a sector, the read operation is terminated at the
sector where the error occurred. Command block registers contain the cylinder, the
head, and the sector addresses of the sector (in the CHS mode) or the logical block
address (in the LBA mode) where the error occurred, and remaining number of
sectors of which data was not transferred.

5.3 Host Commands
(3) WRITE SECTOR(S) (X’30’ or X’31’)
This command writes data of sectors from the address specified in the
Device/Head, Cylinder High, Cylinder Low, and Sector Number registers to the
address specified in the Sector Count register. Number of sectors can be specified
from 1 to 256 sectors. A sector count of 0 requests 256 sectors. Data transfer
begins at the sector specified in the Sector Number register. For the DRQ,
INTRQ, and BSY protocols related to data transfer, see Subsection 5.4.2.
If the head is not on the track specified by the host, the device performs an implied
seek. After the head reaches to the specified track, the device writes the target
sector.
If an error occurs when writing to the target sector, retries are attempted
irrespectively of the R bit setting.
The data stored in the buffer, and CRC code and ECC bytes are written to the data
field of the corresponding sector(s). Upon the completion of the command
execution, the command block registers contain the cylinder, head, and sector
addresses of the last sector written.
If an error occurs during multiple sector write operation, the write operation is
terminated at the sector where the error occurred. Command block registers
contain the cylinder, the head, the sector addresses (in the CHS mode) or the
logical block address (in the LBA mode) of the sector where the error occurred.

5.3 Host Commands
(4) WRITE VERIFY (X’3C’)
This command operates similarly to the WRITE SECTOR(S) command except
that the device verifies each sector immediately after being written. The verify
operation is a read and check for data errors without data transfer. Any error that
is detected during the verify operation is posted.
After all sectors are verified, the last interruption (INTRQ for command
termination) is generated.

(5) READ VERIFY SECTOR(S) (X’40’ or X’41’)
This command operates similarly to the READ SECTOR(S) command except that
the data is not transferred to the host system.
After all requested sectors are verified, the device clears the BSY bit of the Status
register and generates an interrupt. Upon the completion of the command
execution, the command block registers contain the cylinder, head, and sector
number of the last sector verified.
If an unrecoverable error occurs, the verify operation is terminated at the sector
where the error occurred. The command block registers contain the cylinder, the
head, and the sector addresses (in the CHS mode) or the logical block address (in
the LBA mode) of the sector where the error occurred. The Sector Count register
indicates the number of sectors that have not been verified.

(7) EXECUTE DEVICE DIAGNOSTIC (X’90’)
This command performs an internal diagnostic test (self-diagnosis) of the device.
This command usually sets the DRV bit of the Drive/Head register is to 0
(however, the DV bit is not checked). If two devices are present, both devices
execute self-diagnosis.
If device 1 is present:
•
Both devices shall execute self-diagnosis.
•
The device 0 waits for up to 6 seconds until device 1 asserts the PDIAGsignal.
•
If the device 1 does not assert the PDIAG- signal but indicates an error, the
device 0 shall append X’80’ to its own diagnostic status.
•
The device 0 clears the BSY bit of the Status register and generates an
interrupt. (The device 1 does not generate an interrupt.)
•
A diagnostic status of the device 0 is read by the host system. When a
diagnostic failure of the device 1 is detected, the host system can read a status
of the device 1 by setting the DV bit (selecting the device 1).
When device 1 is not present:
•
The device 0 posts only the results of its own self-diagnosis.
•
The device 0 clears the BSY bit of the Status register, and generates an
interrupt.
Table 5.4 lists the diagnostic code written in the Error register which is 8-bit code.
If the device 1 fails the self-diagnosis, the device 0 “ORs” X’80’ with its own
status and sets that code to the Error register.

(8) INITIALIZE DEVICE PARAMETERS (X’91’)
The host system can set the number of sectors per track and the maximum head
number (maximum head number is “number of heads minus 1”) per cylinder with
this command. Upon receipt of this command, the device sets the BSY bit of
Status register and saves the parameters. Then the device clears the BSY bit and
generates an interrupt.
When the SC register is specified to X’00’, an ABORTED COMMAND error is
posted. Other than X’00’ is specified, this command terminates normally.
The parameters set by this command are retained even after reset or power save
operation regardless of the setting of disabling the reverting to default setting.
The device ignores the L bit specification and operates with only CHS mode
specification.

Unload Feature:
When the device received the IDLE IMMEDIATE command with the UNLOAD
FEATURE, the head(s) is unloaded to the ramp position. After the device
completed the unload operation, the INTRQ signal will be asserted and the BUSY
flag will be cleared. The time until the head(s) unload to the ramp position is
typically less than 500 milliseconds. This unload operation is not same as the
power management operation. The device just unloads the head(s), and not
executes the power consumption restraint operation. This unload operation effects
the normal (not emergency) load/unload guarantee count per the device life.
5-34
C141-E250
5.3 Host Commands
Even if the device executes reading look-ahead operation or executes writing
operation, the device unloads the head(s) to the ramp position as soon as possible
when received the IDLE IMMEDIATE command with the Unload Feature. When
the writing operation is stopped, the device keeps the unwritten data. And, the
device keeps the unloaded state until receiving a Soft / Hard Reset, or a new
command except IDLE IMMEDIATE command with the Unload Feature.

(12) STANDBY (X’96’ or X’E2’)
Upon receipt of this command, the device sets the BSY bit of the Status register
and enters the standby mode. The device then clears the BSY bit and generates an
interrupt. If the device has already spun down, the spin-down sequence is not
implemented.
Also, by using this command, the device sets the APS (Automatic Power Standby)
timer function. If the value of the Sector Count register when this command was
received is not ‘0’ then the APS timer value corresponding to it is set, and APS
timer function become valid. If the values of the Sector Count register when this
command was received is ‘0’ then the APS timer function become invalid.
If the APS timer function becomes valid, then the APS timer begins counting
down after completing the next media access command such as the READ or the
WRITE. If the device has not received any command during specified period,
then the device enters standby mode automatically.
Under the standby mode, the spindle motor is stopped. Thus, when the command
involving a seek such as READ SECTOR(s) command is received, the device
processes the command after driving the spindle motor.

5.3 Host Commands
(13) IDLE (X’97’ or X’E3’)
Upon receipt of this command, the device sets the BSY bit of the Status register,
and enters the idle mode. Then, the device clears the BSY bit, and generates an
interrupt. The device generates interrupt even if the device has not fully entered
the idle mode. If the spindle of the device is already rotating, the spin-up sequence
shall not be implemented.
By using this command, the APS (Automatic Power Standby) timer function is
enabled and the timer immediately starts the countdown. When the timer reaches
the specified value, the device enters standby mode. The APS timer is set to
prohibition if the Sector Count register's value was "00h" when device has
received this command.
The APS timer allows the device to change to the standby mode automatically
after specified period. When the device enters the state which is waiting Host
Command, the timer starts countdown. If any command is not issued while the
timer is counting down, the device automatically enters the standby mode. If any
command is issued while the timer is counting down, the timer is initialized and
the command is executed. The timer restarts countdown after completion of the
command execution.
The period of timer count is set depending on the value of the Sector Count
register as shown below.

5.3 Host Commands
(16) SMART (X’B0)
This command predicts the occurrence of device failures depending on the
subcommand specified in the FR register. If the FR register contains values that
are not supported with the command, the Aborted Command error is issued.
Before issuing the command, the host must set the key values in the CL and CH
registers (4Fh in the CL register and C2h in the CH register). If the key values are
incorrect, the Aborted Command error is issued.
If the failure prediction function is disabled, the device returns the Aborted
Command error to subcommands other than those of the SMART Enable
Operations (with the FR register set to D8h).
If the failure prediction function is enabled, the device collects and updates data on
specific items. The values of items whose data is collected and updated by the
device in order to predict device failures are hereinafter referred to as attribute
values.

SMART READ DATE:
A device that received this subcommand asserts the BSY bit and saves all the
updated attribute values. The device then clears the BSY bit and transfers
512-byte attribute value information to the host.
* For information about the format of the attribute value information, see
Table 5.8.
SMART READ ATTRIBUTE THRESHOLDS:
This subcommand is used to transfer 512-byte insurance failure threshold
value data to the host.
* For information about the format of the insurance failure threshold value
data, see Table 5.9.
SMART ENABLE/DISABLE ATTRIBUTE AUTOSAVE:
Enables (by setting the SC register to a value other than 00h) or disables (by
setting the SC register to 00h) a function that automatically saves device
attribute values (“automatic attribute save function”). This setting is held
regardless of whether the device is turned on or off. If the automatic
attribute save function is enabled and more than 15 minutes has elapsed since
the last time that attributes were saved, then the attributes are saved.
However, if the automatic attribute save function is disabled, the attributes
are not saved. Upon receiving this subcommand, a device asserts BSY,
enables or disables the automatic attribute save function, and clears BSY.

SMART RETURN STATUS:
When the device receives this subcommand, it asserts the BSY bit and saves the
current device attribute values. Then the device compares the device attribute
values with insurance failure threshold values. If there is an attribute value
exceeding the threshold, F4h and 2Ch are loaded into the CL and CH registers.
If there are no attribute values exceeding the thresholds, 4Fh and C2h are loaded
into the CL and CH registers. After the settings for the CL and CH registers
have been determined, the device clears the BSY bit
SMART ENABLE/DISABLE AUTO OFF-LINE:
This sets automatic off-line data collection in the enabled (when the SC
register specification ≠ 00h) or disabled (when the SC register specification
= 00) state. This setting is preserved whether the drive’s power is switched
on or off.
If 24 hours have passed since the power was switched on, or since the last
time that off-line data were collected, off-line data collection is performed
without relation to any command from the host computer.
The host must regularly issue the SMART READ DATA subcommand (FR
register = D0h), SMART SAVE ATTRIBUTE VALUES subcommand (FR
register = D3h), or SMART RETURN STATUS subcommand (FR register =
DAh) to save the device attribute value data on a medium.
Alternatively, the device must issue the SMART ENABLE-DISABLE
ATTRIBUTE AUTOSAVE subcommand (FR register = D2h) to use a feature
which regularly saves the device attribute value data to a medium.
The host can predict failures in the device by periodically issuing the SMART
RETURN STATUS subcommand (FR register = DAh) to reference the CL and CH
registers.
If an attribute value is below the insurance failure threshold value, the device is
about to fail or the device is nearing the end of its life . In this case, the host
recommends that the user quickly back up the data.

SMART error logging
If the device detects an unrecoverable error during execution of a command
received from the host, the device registers the error information in the SMART
Summary Error Log (see Table 5.16) and the SMART Comprehensive Error Log
(see Table 5.17), and saves the information on media.
The host issues the SMART Read Log Sector sub-command (FR register = D5h,
SN register = 01h, SC register = 01h) and can read the SMART Summary Error
Log.

5.3 Host Commands
•
DEVICE CONFIGURATION RESTORE (FR = C0h)
The DEVICE CONFIGURATION RESTORE command disables any setting
previously made by a DEVICE CONFIGURATION SET command and returns
the content of the IDENTIFY DEVICE command response to the original settings
as indicated by the data returned from the execution of a DEVICE
CONFIGURATION IDENTIFY command. After execution of this command, the
settings are kept for the device power down or reset.
If a Host Protected Area has been set by a SET MAX ADDRESS (EXT)
command, or if DEVICE CONFIGURATION FREEZE LOCK is set, an aborted
error is posted.
•
DEVICE CONFIGURATION FREEZE LOCK (FR = C1h)
The DEVICE CONFIGURATION FREEZE LOCK command prevents accidental
modification of the Device Configuration Overlay settings. After successful
execution of a DEVICE CONFIGURATION FREEZE LOCK command, all
DEVICE CONFIGURATION SET, DEVICE CONFIGURATION FREEZE
LOCK, DEVICE CONFIGURATION IDENTIFY, and DEVICE
CONFIGURATION RESTORE commands are aborted by the device. The
DEVICE CONFIGURATION FREEZE LOCK condition is cleared by a powerdown, not cleared by a hardware or software reset.
If the device has executed a previous DEVICE CONFIGURATION FREEZE
LOCK command since power-up, an aborted error is posted.
•
DEVICE CONFIGURATION: IDENTIFY (FR = C2h)
The DEVICE CONFIGURATION IDENTIFY command returns a 512-byte data
structure is shown in Table 5.21. The content of this data structure indicates the
selectable commands, modes, and feature sets that the device is capable of
supporting. If a DEVICE CONFIGURATION SET command has been issued
reducing the capabilities, the response to an IDENTIFY DEVICE command will
reflect the reduced set of capabilities, while the DEVICE CONFIGURATION
IDENTIFY command will reflect the entire set of selectable capabilities.
If the device has executed a previous DEVICE CONFIGURATION FREEZE
LOCK command since power-up, an aborted error is posted.
•
DEVICE CONFIGURATION SET (FR = C3h)
The DEVICE CONFIGURATION SET command allows reducing the set of
optional commands, modes, or feature sets supported by a device as indicated by a
DEVICE CONFIGURATION IDENTIFY command. The format of the overlay
transmitted by the device is described in Table 5.21. As a result to the limitation
of the function by the DEVICE CONFIGURATION SET command, is reflected in
IDENTIFY information. When the bits in these words are cleared, the device no
longer supports the indicated command, mode, or feature set. If a bit is set in the
overlay transmitted by the device that is not set in the overlay received from a
DEVICE CONFIGURATION IDENTIFY command, no action is taken for that
bit. After execution of this command, the settings are kept for the device power
down or reset.
C141-E250

Interface
If the restriction of Multiword DMA modes or Ultra DMA modes is executed, a
SET FEATURES command should be issued for the modes restriction prior the
DEVICE CONFIGURATION SET command is issued.
When the Automatic Acoustic Management function is assumed to be
unsupported, Automatic Acoustic Management is prohibited beforehand by SET
FEATURES command (FR=C2h).
If a DEVICE CONFIGURATION SET command has already modified the
original settings as reported by a DEVICE CONFIGURATION IDENTIFY
command, if DEVICE CONFIGURATION FREEZE LOCK is set, if any of the bit
modification restrictions described are violated, or if a Host Protected Area has
been established by the execution of a SET MAX ADDRESS (EXT) command, an
aborted error is posted.

5.3 Host Commands
(18) READ MULTIPLE (X’C4’)
The READ MULTIPLE Command performs the same as the READ SECTOR(S)
Command except that when the device is ready to transfer data for a block of
sectors, and enters the interrupt pending state only before the data transfer for the
first sector of the block sectors. In the READ MULTIPLE command operation,
the DRQ bit of the Status register is set only at the start of the data block, and is
not set on each sector.
The number of sectors per block is defined by a successful SET MULTIPLE
MODE Command. The SET MULTIPLE MODE command should be executed
prior to the READ MULTIPLE command.
If the number of requested sectors is not divided evenly (having the same number
of sectors [block count]), as many full blocks as possible are transferred, then a
final partial block is transferred. The number of sectors in the partial block to be
transferred is n where n = remainder of (“number of sectors”/”block count”).
If the READ MULTIPLE command is issued before the SET MULTIPLE MODE
command is executed or when the READ MULTIPLE command is disabled, the
device rejects the READ MULTIPLE command with an ABORTED COMMAND
error.
Figure 5.2 shows an example of the execution of the READ MULTIPLE
command.
•
Block count specified by SET MULTIPLE MODE command = 4 (number of
sectors in a block)
•
READ MULTIPLE command specifies;
Number of requested sectors = 9 (Sector Count register = 9)

5.3 Host Commands
(19) WRITE MULTIPLE (X’C5’)
This command is similar to the WRITE SECTOR(S) command. The device does
not generate interrupts (assertion of the INTRQ) signal) on each sector but on the
transfer of a block which contains the number of sectors for which the number is
defined by the SET MULTIPLE MODE command. The DRQ bit of the Status
register is required to set only at the start of the data block, not on each sector.
The number of sectors per block is defined by a successful SET MULTIPLE
MODE command. The SET MULTIPLE MODE command should be executed
prior to the WRITE MULTIPLE command.
If the number of requested sectors is not divided evenly (having the same number
of sectors [block count]), as many full blocks as possible are transferred, then a
final partial block is transferred. The number of sectors in the partial block to be
transferred is n where n = remainder of (“number of sectors”/”block count”).
If the WRITE MULTIPLE command is issued before the SET MULTIPLE
MODE command is executed or when WRITE MULTIPLE command is disabled,
the device rejects the WRITE MULTIPLE command with an ABORTED
COMMAND error.
Disk errors encountered during execution of the WRITE MULTIPLE command are
posted after attempting to write the block or the partial block that was transferred.
Write operation ends at the sector where the error was encountered even if the sector
is in the middle of a block. If an error occurs, the subsequent block shall not be
transferred. Interrupts are generated when the DRQ bit of the Status register is set at
the beginning of each block or partial block.
The contents of the command block registers related to addresses after the transfer
of a data block containing an erred sector are undefined. To obtain a valid error
information, the host should retry data transfer as an individual request.

5.3 Host Commands
(20) SET MULTIPLE MODE (X’C6’)
This command enables the device to perform the READ MULTIPLE and
WRITE MULTIPLE commands. The block count (number of sectors in a
block) for these commands is also specified by the SET MULTIPLE MODE
command.
The number of sectors per block is written into the Sector Count register. The
IDD supports 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32 (sectors) as the block counts.
Upon receipt of this command, the device sets the BSY bit of the Status register
and checks the contents of the Sector Count register. If the contents of the Sector
Count register are valid and are supported block count, the value is stored for all
subsequent READ MULTIPLE and WRITE MULTIPLE commands. Execution
of these commands is then enabled. If the value of the Sector Count register is not
a supported block count, an ABORTED COMMAND error is posted and the
READ MULTIPLE and WRITE MULTIPLE commands are disabled.
If the contents of the Sector Count register is 0, when the SET MULTIPLE MODE
command is issued, the READ MULTIPLE and WRITE MULTIPLE commands
are disabled.
When the SET MULTIPLE MODE command operation is completed, the device
clears the BSY bit and generates an interrupt.

5.3 Host Commands
(21) READ DMA (X’C8’ or X’C9’)
This command operates similarly to the READ SECTOR(S) command except for
following events.
•
The data transfer starts at the timing of DMARQ signal assertion.
•
The device controls the assertion or negation timing of the DMARQ signal.
•
The device posts a status as the result of command execution only once at
completion of the data transfer.
When an error, such as an unrecoverable medium error, that the command
execution cannot be continued is detected, the data transfer is stopped without
transferring data of sectors after the erred sector. The device generates an interrupt
using the INTRQ signal and posts a status to the host system. The format of the
error information is the same as the READ SECTOR(S) command.
In LBA mode
The logical block address is specified using the start head No., start cylinder No.,
and first sector No. fields. At command completion, the logical block address of
the last sector and remaining number of sectors of which data was not transferred,
like in the CHS mode, are set.
The host system can select the DMA transfer mode by using the SET FEATURES
command.

5.3 Host Commands
(22) WRITE DMA (X’CA’ or X’CB’)
This command operates similarly to the WRITE SECTOR(S) command except for
following events.
•
The data transfer starts at the timing of DMARQ signal assertion.
•
The device controls the assertion or negation timing of the DMARQ signal.
•
The device posts a status as the result of command execution only once at
completion of the data transfer or completion of processing in the device.
•
The device posts a status as the result of command execution only once at
completion of the data transfer.
When an error, such as an unrecoverable medium error, that the command
execution cannot be continued is detected, the data transfer is stopped without
transferring data of sectors after the erred sector. The device generates an interrupt
using the INTRQ signal and posts a status to the host system. The format of the
error information is the same as the WRITE SECTOR(S) command.
A host system can select the following transfer mode using the SET FEATURES
command.

5.3 Host Commands
(23) READ BUFFER (X’E4’)
The host system can read the current contents of the data buffer of the device by
issuing this command. Upon receipt of this command, the device sets the BSY bit
of Status register and sets up for a read operation. Then the device sets the DRQ
bit of Status register, clears the BSY bit, and generates an interrupt. After that, the
host system can read up to 512 bytes of data from the buffer.

(24) FLUSH CACHE (X’E7’)
This command is used to order to write every write cache data stored by the device
into the medium. BSY bit is held at "1" until every data has been written normally
or an error has occurred. The device performs every error recovery so that the data
are read correctly.
When executing this command, the reading of the data may take several seconds if
much data are to be read.
In case a non-recoverable error has occurred while the data is being read, the error
generation address is put into the command block register before ending the
command. This error sector is deleted from the write cache data, and the remaining
cache data is written into the medium by the execution of the next Flush Cache
command.

5.3 Host Commands
(25) WRITE BUFFER (X’E8’)
The host system can overwrite the contents of the data buffer of the device with a
desired data pattern by issuing this command. Upon receipt of this command, the
device sets the BSY bit of the Status register. Then the device sets the DRQ bit of
Status register and clears the BSY bit when the device is ready to receive the data.
After that, 512 bytes of data is transferred from the host and the device writes the
data to the buffer, then generates an interrupt.

(26) IDENTIFY DEVICE (X’EC’)
The host system issues the IDENTIFY DEVICE command to read parameter
information from the device. Upon receipt of this command, the drive sets the
BSY bit to one, prepares to transfer the 256 words of device identification data to
the host, sets the DRQ bit to one, clears the BSY bit to zero, and generates an
interrupt. After that, the host system reads the information out of the sector buffer.
Table 5.22 shows the values of the parameter words and the meaning in the buffer.

5.3 Host Commands
(28) SET FEATURES (X’EF’)
The host system issues the SET FEATURES command to set parameters in the
Features register for the purpose of changing the device features to be executed.
Upon receipt of this command, the device sets the BSY bit of the Status register
and saves the parameters in the Features register. Then, the device clears the BSY
bit, and generates an interrupt.
If the value in the Features register is not supported or it is invalid, the device
posts an ABORTED COMMAND error.
Table 5.23 lists the available values and operational modes that may be set in the
Features register.

*1) Data Transfer Mode
The host sets X’03’ to the Features register. By issuing this command with setting
a value to the Sector Count register, the transfer mode can be selected. Upper 5
bits of the Sector Count register defines the transfer type and lower 3 bits specifies
the binary mode value.
The IDD supports following values in the Sector Count register value. If other
value than below is specified, an ABORTED COMMAND error is posted.

*2) Advanced Power Management (APM)
The host writes the Sector Count register with the desired power management
level and executes this command with the Features register X’05’, and then
Advanced Power Management is enabled.
The drive automatically shifts to power saving mode up to the specified APM
level when the drive does not receive any commands for a specific time. The
sequence in which the power management level shifts is from Active Idle to Low
Power Idle to Standby. The Mode-2 level requires the longest shifting time,
depending on the APM level settings. The settings of the APM level revert to their
default values (Mode-1) when power-on or a hardware reset occurs for the drive.

5.3 Host Commands
(30) SECURITY UNLOCK(X’F2’)
This command cancels LOCKED MODE.
The host transfers the 512-byte data shown in Table 5.26 to the device. Operation
of the device varies as follows depending on whether the host specifies the master
password.
•
When the master password is selected
When the security level is LOCKED MODE is high, the password is compared
with the master password already set. If the passwords are the same, LOCKED
MODE is canceled. Otherwise, the Aborted Command error is returned. If the
security level in LOCKED MODE is set to the highest level, the Aborted
Command error is always returned.
•
When the user password is selected
The password is compared with the user password already set. If the passwords
are the same, LOCKED MODE is canceled. Otherwise, the Aborted Command
error is returned.
If the password comparison fails, the device decrements the UNLOCK counter.
The UNLOCK counter initially has a value of five. When the value of the
UNLOCK counter reaches zero, this command or the SECURITY ERASE UNIT
command causes the Aborted Command error until the device is turned off and
then on, or until a hardware reset is executed. Issuing this command with
LOCKED MODE canceled (in UNLOCK MODE) has no affect on the UNLOCK
counter.
Issuing this command in FROZEN MODE returns the Aborted Command error.

(32) SECURITY ERASE UNIT (X’F4’)
This command erases all user data. This command also invalidates the user
password and releases the lock function.
The host transfers the 512-byte data shown in Table 5.26 to the device. The
device compares the user password or master password in the transferred data with
the user password or master password already set. The device erases user data,
invalidates the user password, and releases the lock function if the passwords are
the same.
Although this command invalidates the user password, the master password is
retained. To recover the master password, issue the SECURITY SET
PASSWORD command and reset the user password.
If the SECURITY ERASE PREPARE command is not issued immediately before
this command is issued, the Aborted Command error is returned.
Issuing this command while in FROZEN MODE returns the Aborted Command
error.

SET MAX ADDRESS
A successful READ NATIVE MAX ADDRESS command shall immediately
precede a SET MAX ADDRESS command.
This command allows the maximum address accessible by the user to be set in
LBA or CHS mode. Upon receipt of the command, the device sets the BSY bit
and saves the maximum address specified in the DH, CH, CL and SN registers.
Then, it clears BSY and generates an interrupt.
The new address information set by this command is reflected in Words 1, 54, 57,
58, 60 and 61 of IDENTIFY DEVICE information. If an attempt is made to
perform a read or write operation for an address beyond the new address space, an
ID Not Found error will result.
When SC register bit 0, VV (Value Volatile), is 1, the value set by this command
is held even after power on and the occurrence of a hard reset. When the VV bit is
0, the value set by this command becomes invalid when the power is turned on or
a hard reset occurs, and the maximum address returns to the value most lately set
when VV bit = 1. (The value by VV bit = 0 is held in case that this command
with VV bit = 1 has not been issued or had set the default value, and hard reset
occurs.)
After power on and the occurrence of a hard reset, the host can issue this
command only once when VV bit = 1. If this command with VV bit = 1 is issued
twice or more, any command following the first time will result in an Aborted
Command error.
When the SET MAX ADDRESS EXT command is executed, all SET MAX
ADRESS commands are aborted. The address value returns to the origin when the
SET MAX ADDRESS EXT command is executed using the address value
returned by the READ NATIVE MAX ADDRESS command.

SET MAX LOCK (FR = 02h)
The SET MAX LOCK command sets the device into SET_MAX_LOCK state.
After this command is completed, any other SET MAX commands except SET
MAX UNLOCK and SET MAX FREEZE LOCK commands are rejected. And
the device returns command aborted.
The device remains in the SET MAX LOCK state until a power cycle or the
acceptance of SET MAX UNLOCK or SET MAX FREEZE LOCK command.
The READ NATIVE MAX ADDRESS command is not executed just before this
command. The command is the SET MAX ADDRESS command if it is the
command just after the READ NATIVE MAX ADDRESS command is executed.

SET MAX UNLOCK (FR = 03h)
This command requests a transfer of single sector of data from the host, and
defines the contents of SET MAX ADDRESS password.
The password supplied in the sector of data transferred shall be compared with the
stored password.
If the password compare fails, the device returns command aborted and
decrements the Unlock counter, and remains in the Set Max Lock state. On the
acceptance of the SET MAX LOCK command, the Unlock counter is set to a value
of five. When this counter reaches zero, then SET MAX UNLOCK command
returns command aborted until a power cycle.
If the password compare matches, then the device makes a transition to the Set
Max Unlocked state and all SET MAX commands will be accepted.
The READ NATIVE MAX ADDRESS command is not executed just before this
command. The command is the SET MAX ADDRESS command if it is the
command just after the READ NATIVE MAX ADDRESS command is executed.

(44) SET MAX ADDRESS EXT (X’37’): Option (customizing)
•
Description
This command limits specifications so that the highest address that can be
accessed by users can be specified only in LBA mode.
The address information specified with this command is set in words 1, 54, 57, 58,
60, 61, and 100 to 103 of the IDENTIFY DEVICE command response. If read or
write processing is executed for an address that is outside of the new address
space, an ID Not Found error occurs.
If the SC register bit is 0 and the value volatile (VV) bit is 1 when this command is
executed, the specified values are maintained after a power-on reset. If the VV bit
is 0 when the command is executed, the specified values are invalidated during the
power-on sequence. If the VV bit is 1, the highest address value is defined as the
last value specified. (If the VV bit is not set to 1, the highest address is the default
value.)
After a power-on reset is performed, a host can issue the SET MAX ADDRESS
(EXT) command only once if the VV bit is 1. If the SET MAX ADDRESS (EXT)
command is issued twice or more, an ID Not Found error occurs.
When the SET MAX ADDRESS EXT command is executed, all SET MAX
ADDRESS commands are aborted. The address value returns to the origin when
the SET MAX ADDRESS EXT command is executed using the address value
returned by the READ NATIVE MAX ADDRESS command.

5.4 Command Protocol
5.4 Command Protocol
The host should confirm that the BSY bit of the Status register of the device is 0
prior to issue a command. If BSY bit is 1, the host should wait for issuing a
command until BSY bit is cleared to 0.
Commands can be executed only when the DRDY bit of the Status register is 1.
However, the following commands can be executed even if DRDY bit is 0.

•
SMART READ LOG
•
DEVICE CONFIGURATION IDENTIFY
•
READ BUFFER
•

The execution of these commands includes the transfer one or more sectors of data
from the device to the host. Following shows the protocol outline.
a)
The host writes any required parameters to the Features, Sector Count, Sector
Number, Cylinder, and Device/Head registers.
b) The host writes a command code to the Command register.
c)
The device sets the BSY bit of the Status register and prepares for data
transfer.
d) When one sector of data is available for transfer to the host, the device sets
DRQ bit and clears BSY bit. The drive then asserts INTRQ signal.
e)
C141-E250
After detecting the INTRQ signal assertion, the host reads the Status register.
The host reads one sector of data via the Data register. In response to the
Status register being read, the device negates the INTRQ signal.
5-129
Interface
f)
The drive clears DRQ bit to 0. If transfer of another sector is requested, the
device sets the BSY bit and steps d) and after are repeated.
Even if an error is encountered, the device prepares for data transfer by setting the
DRQ bit. Whether or not to transfer the data is determined for each host. In other
words, the host should receive the relevant sector of data (512 bytes of uninsured
dummy data) or release the DRQ status by resetting.

5.4 Command Protocol
For transfer of a sector of data, the host needs to read Status register
(X’1F7’) in order to clear INTRQ (interrupt) signal. The Status
register should be read within a period from the DRQ setting by the
device to starting of the sector data transfer. Note that the host does
not need to read the Status register for the reading of a single sector
or the last sector in multiple-sector reading. If the timing to read the
Status register does not meet above condition, normal data transfer
operation is not guaranteed.
When the host new command even if the device requests the data
transfer (setting in DRQ bit), the correct device operation is not
guaranteed.

b) The host writes a command code in the Command register. The drive sets the
BSY bit of the Status register.
c)
When the device is ready to receive the data of the first sector, the device sets
DRQ bit and clears BSY bit.
d) The host writes one sector of data through the Data register.
e)
The device clears the DRQ bit and sets the BSY bit.
f)
When the drive completes transferring the data of the sector, the device clears
BSY bit and asserts INTRQ signal. If transfer of another sector is requested,
the drive sets the DRQ bit.
g) After detecting the INTRQ signal assertion, the host reads the Status register.
h) The device resets INTRQ (the interrupt signal).

5.5 Ultra DMA Feature Set
5.5 Ultra DMA Feature Set
5.5.1 Overview
Ultra DMA is a data transfer protocol used with the READ DMA and WRITE
DMA commands. When this protocol is enabled it shall be used instead of the
Multiword DMA protocol when these commands are issued by the host. This
protocol applies to the Ultra DMA data burst only. When this protocol is used
there are no changes to other elements of the ATA protocol (e.g.: Command
Block Register access).
Several signal lines are redefined to provide new functions during an Ultra DMA
burst. These lines assume these definitions when 1) an Ultra DMA Mode is
selected, and 2) a host issues a READ DMA or a WRITE DMA, command
requiring data transfer, and 3) the host asserts DMACK-. These signal lines revert
back to the definitions used for non-Ultra DMA transfers upon the negation of
DMACK- by the host at the termination of an Ultra DMA burst. All of the control
signals are unidirectional. DMARQ and DMACK- retain their standard
definitions.
With the Ultra DMA protocol, the control signal (STROBE) that latches data from
DD (15:0) is generated by the same agent (either host or device) that drives the
data onto the bus. Ownership of DD (15:0) and this data strobe signal are given
either to the device during an Ultra DMA data in burst or to the host for an Ultra
DMA data out burst.
During an Ultra DMA burst a sender shall always drive data onto the bus, and after
a sufficient time to allow for propagation delay, cable settling, and setup time, the
sender shall generate a STROBE edge to latch the data. Both edges of STROBE
are used for data transfers so that the frequency of STROBE is limited to the same
frequency as the data.
Words in the IDENTIFY DEVICE data indicate support of the Ultra DMA feature
and the Ultra DMA Modes the device is capable of supporting. The Set transfer
mode subcommand in the SET FEATURES command shall be used by a host to
select the Ultra DMA Mode at which the system operates. The Ultra DMA Mode
selected by a host shall be less than or equal to the fastest mode of which the
device is capable. Only the Ultra DMA Mode shall be selected at any given time.
All timing requirements for a selected Ultra DMA Mode shall be satisfied.
Devices supporting Ultra DMA Mode 2 shall also support Ultra DMA Modes 0
and 1. Devices supporting Ultra DMA Mode 1 shall also support Ultra DMA
Mode 0.
An Ultra DMA capable device shall retain its previously selected Ultra DMA
Mode after executing a Software reset sequence. An Ultra DMA capable device
shall clear any previously selected Ultra DMA Mode and revert to its default nonUltra DMA Modes after executing a Power on or hardware reset.
C141-E250
5-137
Interface
Both the host and device perform a CRC function during an Ultra DMA burst. At
the end of an Ultra DMA burst the host sends the its CRC data to the device. The
device compares its CRC data to the data sent from the host. If the two values do
not match the device reports an error in the error register at the end of the
command. If an error occurs during one or more Ultra DMA bursts for any one
command, at the end of the command, the device shall report the first error that
occurred.
5.5.2 Phases of operation
An Ultra DMA data transfer is accomplished through a series of Ultra DMA data
in or data out bursts. Each Ultra DMA burst has three mandatory phases of
operation: the initiation phase, the data transfer phase, and the Ultra DMA burst
termination phase. In addition, an Ultra DMA burst may be paused during the data
transfer phase (see 5.5.3 and 5.5.4 for the detailed protocol descriptions for each of
these phases, 5.6 defines the specific timing requirements). In the following rules
DMARDY- is used in cases that could apply to either DDMARDY- or
HDMARDY-, and STROBE is used in cases that could apply to either DSTROBE
or HSTROBE. The following are general Ultra DMA rules.
a)
An Ultra DMA burst is defined as the period from an assertion of DMACKby the host to the subsequent negation of DMACK-.
b) A recipient shall be prepared to receive at least two data words whenever it
enters or resumes an Ultra DMA burst.
5.5.3 Ultra DMA data in commands
5.5.3.1 Initiating an Ultra DMA data in burst
The following steps shall occur in the order they are listed unless otherwise
specifically allowed (see 5.6.3.1 and 5.6.3.2 for specific timing requirements):
1) The host shall keep DMACK- in the negated state before an Ultra DMA burst
is initiated.
2) The device shall assert DMARQ to initiate an Ultra DMA burst. After
assertion of DMARQ the device shall not negate DMARQ until after the first
negation of DSTROBE.
3) Steps (3), (4) and (5) may occur in any order or at the same time. The host
shall assert STOP.

5.5.5 Ultra DMA CRC rules
The following is a list of rules for calculating CRC, determining if a CRC error has
occurred during an Ultra DMA burst, and reporting any error that occurs at the end
of a command.
a)
Both the host and the device shall have a 16-bit CRC calculation function.
b) Both the host and the device shall calculate a CRC value for each Ultra DMA
burst.
c)
The CRC function in the host and the device shall be initialized with a seed of
4ABAh at the beginning of an Ultra DMA burst before any data is transferred.
d) For each STROBE transition used for data transfer, both the host and the
device shall calculate a new CRC value by applying the CRC polynomial to
the current value of their individual CRC functions and the word being
transferred. CRC is not calculated for the return of STROBE to the asserted
state after the Ultra DMA burst termination request has been acknowledged.
e)
At the end of any Ultra DMA burst the host shall send the results of its CRC
calculation function to the device on DD (15:0) with the negation of
DMACK-.
f)
The device shall then compare the CRC data from the host with the calculated
value in its own CRC calculation function. If the two values do not match,
the device shall save the error and report it at the end of the command. A
subsequent Ultra DMA burst for the same command that does not have a CRC
error shall not clear an error saved from a previous Ultra DMa burst in the
same command. If a miscompare error occurs during one or more Ultra DMA
bursts for any one command, at the end of the command, the device shall
report the first error that occurred.
g) For READ DMA or WRITE DMA commands: When a CRC error is
detected, it shall be reported by setting both ICRC and ABRT (bit 7 and bit 2
in the Error register) to one. ICRC is defined as the "Interface CRC Error"
bit. The host shall respond to this error by re-issuing the command.
h) A host may send extra data words on the last Ultra DMA burst of a data out
command. If a device determines that all data has been transferred for a
command, the device shall terminate the burst. A device may have already
received more data words than were required for the command. These extra
words are used by both the host and the device to calculate the CRC, but, on
an Ultra DMA data out burst, the extra words shall be discarded by the device.
C141-E250
5-147
Interface
i)
The CRC generator polynomial is : G (X) = X16 + X12 + X5 + 1.
Note: Since no bit clock is available, the recommended approach for
calculating CRC is to use a word clock derived from the bus strobe.
The combinational logic shall then be equivalent to shifting sixteen bits
serially through the generator polynomial where DD0 is shifted in first
and DD15 is shifted in last.
5.5.6 Series termination required for Ultra DMA
Series termination resistors are required at both the host and the device for
operation in any of the Ultra DMA Modes. The following table describes
recommended values for series termination at the host and the device.

*1: Except for some instances of tMLI that apply to host signals only, the parameters tUI, tMLI and tLI indicate sender-to-recipient or recipient-tosender interlocks, i.e., one agent (either sender or recipient) is waiting for the other agent to respond with a signal before proceeding. tUI
is an unlimited interlock that has no maximum time value. tMLI is a limited time-out that has a defined minimum. tLI is a limited timeout that has a defined maximum.
*2: 80-conductor cabling shall be required in order to meet setup (tDS, tCS) and hold (tDH, tCH) times in modes greater than 2.
*3: Timing for tDVS, tDVH, tCVS and tCVH shall be met for lumped capacitive loads of 15 and 40 pf at the connector where all signals (Data and
STROBE) have the same capacitive load value. Due to reflections on the cable, the measurement of these timings is not valid in a
normally functioning system.
*4: For all modes the parameter tZIORDY may be greater than tENV due to the fact that the host has a pull up on IORDY- giving it a known state
when not actively driven.
*5: The parameters tDS, and tDH for mode 5 is defined for a recipient at the end of the cable only in a configuration with one device at the end
of the cable.
Note:
All timing measurement switching points (low to high and high to low) shall be taken at 1.5V.

6.1 Device Response to the Reset
This section describes how the PDIAG- and DASP- signals responds when the
power of the IDD is turned on or the IDD receives a reset or diagnostic command.
6.1.1 Response to power-on
After the master device (device 0) releases its own power-on reset state, the master
device shall check a DASP- signal for least 500 ms to confirm presence of a slave
device (device 1). The master device recognizes presence of the slave device
when it confirms assertion of the DASP- signal. Then, the master device checks a
PDIAG- signal to see if the slave device has successfully completed the power-on
diagnostics.
If the master device cannot confirm assertion of the DASP- signal within 500 ms,
the master device recognizes that no slave device is connected.
After the slave device (device 1) releases its own power-on reset state, the slave
device shall report its presence and the result of power-on diagnostics to the master
device as described below:
DASP- signal: Asserted within 450 ms.
PDIAG- signal: Negated within 1 ms and asserted within 30 seconds.
The asserted PDIAG-signal is negated 30 seconds after it is asserted if the
command is not received.

6.1.2 Response to hardware reset
Response to RESET- (hardware reset through the interface) is similar to the
power-on reset.
Upon receipt of hardware reset, the master device checks a DASP- signal for up to
500 ms to confirm presence of a slave device. The master device recognizes the
presence of the slave device when it confirms assertion of the DASP- signal. Then
the master device checks a PDIAG- signal to see if the slave device has
successfully completed the self-diagnostics.
If the master device cannot confirm assertion of the DASP- signal within 450 ms,
the master device recognizes that no slave device is connected.

to see if the slave device has completed the self-diagnosis successfully.
After the slave device receives the software reset, the slave device shall report its
presence and the result of the self-diagnostics to the master device as described
below:

The master device does not check the DASP- signal.
After the slave device receives the EXECUTE DEVICE DIAGNOSTIC command,
it shall report the result of the self-diagnostics to the master device as described
below:
PDIAG- signal: negated within 1 ms and asserted within 5 seconds
The asserted PDIAG-signal is negated 5 seconds after it is asserted if the command
is not received. If the command is received, the PDIAG-signal is negated

6.2 Power Save
6.2 Power Save
The host can change the power consumption state of the device by issuing a power
command to the device.
6.2.1 Power save mode
There are five types of power consumption state of the device including active
mode where all circuits are active.
•
Active mode
•
Active idle mode
•
Low power idle mode
•
Standby mode
•
Sleep mode
The device enters the active idle mode by itself. The device also enters the idle
mode in the same way after power-on sequence is completed. The subsequent
mode transition changes depending on the APM setting.
(1) Active mode
In this mode, all the electric circuit in the device are active or the device is under
seek, read or write operation.
A device enters the active mode under the following conditions:
•
The media access system is received.
(2) Active idle mode
In this mode, circuits on the device are set to power save mode.
The device enters the Active idle mode under the following conditions:
•
After completion of the command execution other than SLEEP and STANDBY
commands.
(3) Low power idle mode
Sets circuits on the device to the power save mode. The heads are disabled in the
safe state.
The device enters the low power mode under the following conditions:
C141-E250
•
After certain amount of time has elapsed in the active idle state (APM Mode
0, Mode 1 and Mode 2)
•
Upon completion of the power-on sequence
6-7
Operations
•
Upon receipt of a hard reset
•
Upon receipt of Idle/Idle Intermediate
(4) Standby mode
In this mode, the spindle motor has stopped from the low power idle state.
The device can receive commands through the interface. However if a command
with disk access is issued, response time to the command under the standby mode
takes longer than the active, active idle, or low power idle mode because the
access to the disk medium cannot be made immediately.
The drive enters the standby mode under the following conditions:
•
A STANDBY or STANDBY IMMEDIATE command is issued.
•
A certain amount of time has elapsed in the low power idle state. (APM
Mode 2)
•
The time specified by the STANDBY or IDLE command has elapsed after
completion of the command.
•
A reset is issued in the sleep mode.
When one of following commands is issued, the command is executed normally
and the device is still stayed in the standby mode.
•
Reset (hardware or software)
•
STANDBY command
•
STANDBY IMMEDIATE command
•
INITIALIZE DEVICE PARAMETERS command
•
CHECK POWER MODE command
(5) Sleep mode
The power consumption of the drive is minimal in this mode. The drive enters
only the standby mode from the sleep mode. The only method to return from the
standby mode is to execute a software or hardware reset.
The drive enters the sleep mode under the following condition:
•
A SLEEP command is issued.
In this mode, the device does not accept the command. (It is ignored.)

6.3 Defect Processing
This device performs alternating processing where the defective sector is
alternated with the spare area depending on media defect location information.
The media defect location information is registered in the system space specified
for the user area according to the format at shipment of the media from the plant.
6.3.1 Spare area
The following type of area is prepared as the spare area in user areas:
1) Spare cylinder for alternate assignment: This cylinder is used during
automatic alternating processing for defective sector. More than 2000
sectors/drive.
C141-E250
6-9
Operations
6.3.2 Alternating processing for defective sectors
The following two types of technology are used for alternating processing:
(1) Sector slip processing
In this method, defective sectors are not used (thereby avoiding the effects of
defects), and each defective sector is assigned to the next contiguous sector that is
normal.
Depending on the format defined at shipment from the plant, this processing is
performed for defective sectors.

6.3 Defect Processing
(3) Automatic alternating processing
This technology assigns a defective sector to a spare sector of a spare cylinder for
alternate assignment.
This device performs automatic alternating processing in the event of any of the
following errors.
•
Automatic alternating processing is attempted for read error recovery by
reaching the specified retry cycle while a read error retry is in progress.
Before attempting automatic alternating processing, writing and reading of
already corrected data is repeated for the sector in which an error occurred. If
a read error does not occur during this reading operation, automatic
alternating processing is not performed.
•
If error recovery is not successful even if a write fault error retry is executed,
automatic alternating processing is performed.
Figure 6.6 shows an example where automatic alternating processing is applied to
sector (physical) 5 with cylinder 0 and head 0.

2.
When an access request for sector 5 is issued, the sector assigned for
alternating processing of the alternate cylinder must be accessed instead of
physical sector 5.
If an access request for sectors after sector 5 is issued, seek is executed to
cylinder 0, head 0 in order to continue processing.

Operations
6.4 Read-ahead Cache
Read-ahead Cache is the function for automatically reading data blocks upon
completion of the read command in order to read data from disk media and save
data block on a data buffer.
If a subsequent command requests reading of the read-ahead data, data on the data
buffer can be transferred without accessing the disk media. As the result, faster
data access becomes possible for the host.
6.4.1 DATA buffer structure
This device contains a data buffer. This buffer is divided into two areas: one area
is used for MPU work, and the other is used as a read cache for another command.
(See Figure 6.7)

6.4.2 Caching operation
The caching operation is performed only when the commands listed below are
received. If any of the following data are stored on the data buffer, the data is sent
to the host system.
•
All of the sector data that this command processes.
•
A part of the sector data including the start sector, that this command
processes.
If part of the data to be processed is stored on the data buffer, the remaining data is
read from disk media and sent to the host system.
(1) Commands that are targets of caching
The commands that are targets of caching are as follows:
•
READ SECTOR(s)
•
READ MULTIPLE
•
READ DMA
•
READ SECTOR(s) EXT
•
READ DMA EXT
•
READ MULTIPLE EXT
However, if the caching function is prohibited by the SET FEATURES command,
the caching operation is not performed.
(2) Data that is a target of caching
The data that is a target of caching are as follows:
1) Read-ahead data that is read from disk media and saved to the data buffer
upon completion of execution of a command that is a target of caching.
2) Pre-read data that is read from disk media and saved to the data buffer before
execution of a command that is a target of caching.
3) Data required by a command that is a target of caching and has been sent to
the host system one. If the sector data requested by the host has not been
completely stored in the read cache portion of the buffer, this data does not
become a target of caching. Also, if sequential hits occur continuously, the
caching-target data required by the host becomes invalid because that data is
overwrited by new data.
(3) Invalidating caching-target data
Data that is a target of caching on the data buffer is invalidated under the
following conditions:

6.4.3 Using the read segment buffer
Methods of using the read segment buffer are explained for following situations.
6.4.3.1 Miss-hit
In this situations, the top block of read requested data is not stored at all in the data
buffer. As a result, all of the read requested data is read from disk media.
1) HAP (host address pointer) and DAP (disk address pointer) are defined in the
head of the segment allocated from Buffer. (If pre-read is executed, HAP is
set at the requested data reading position.)
HAP (host address pointer)
Read segment
DAP (disk address pointer)
2) During reading of read requested data, the request data that has already been
read is sent to the host system.
Read requested data is
stored until this point
HAP
Read requested data
Free space
DAP
3) When reading of read requested data is completed and transfer of the read
requested data to the host system is completed, reading of the disk continues
until a certain amount of data is stored.

Operations
6.4.3.2 Sequential hit
When the read command that is targeted at a sequential address is received after
execution of the read commands is completed, the read command transmits the
Read requested data to the host system continuing read-ahead without newly
allocating the buffer for read.
1) When the sequential read command is received, HAP is set in the sequential
address of the last read command, and DAP is set at a present read position as
it is.
HAP (host address pointer)
Cache valid data

2) During reading of read requested data, the request data that has already been
read is sent to the host system.

6.4 Read-ahead Cache
6.4.3.3 Full hit
In this situation, all read requested data is stored in the data buffer. Transfer of the
read requested data is started from the location where hit data is stored. For data
that is a target of caching and remains before a full hit, the data is retained when
execution of the command is completed. This is done so that a new read-ahead
operation is not performed. If the full hit command is received during the readahead operation, a transfer of the read requested data starts while the read-ahead
operation is in progress.
1) An example is the state shown below where the previous read command is
executing sequential reading. First, HAP is set at the location where hit data
is stored.

6.4.3.4 Partial hit
In this situation, a part of read requested data including the top sector is stored in
the data buffer. A transfer of the read requested data starts from the address where
the data that is hit is stored until the top sector of the read requested data.
Remaining part of insufficient data is read then.
An example is a case where a partial hit occurs in cache data, as shown below.

data is read.

3) When reading the read requested data ends and the transmission of the read
requested data to the host system ends, the read-ahead operation continues

Miss hit.

6.5 Write Cache
6.5 Write Cache
Write Cache is the function for reducing the command processing time by
separating command control to disk media from write control to disk media.
When Write Cache is permitted, the write command can be keep receiving as long
as the space available for data transfers remains free on the data buffer. Because
of this function, command processing appears to be completed swiftly from the
viewpoint of the host. It improves system throughput.
6.5.1 Cache operation
(1) Command that are targets of caching
The Commands that are targets of caching are as follows:
•
WRITE SECTOR (S)
•
WRITE MULTIPLE
•
WRITE DMA
•
WRITE SECTOR (S) EXT
•
WRITE MULTIPLE EXT
•
WRITE DMA EXT
However, the caching operation is not performed when the caching function is
prohibited by the SET FEATURES command.
(2) Invalidation of cached data
If an error occurs during writing onto media, write processing is repeated up to as
many times as specified for retry processing. If retry fails for a sector because the
retry limit is reached, automatic alternate sector processing is executed for the
sector. If the automatic alternate sector processing fails, the data in the sector for
which automatic alternate sector processing failed is invalidated without being
guaranteed.
If data remains in sectors following a sector for which automatic alternate sector
processing failed, the data is invalidated without being guaranteed.
Moreover, when the command (clause 6.4.2(3)) is accepted and HOST CRC Error
is generated, the caching data is invalidated.
<Exception>
•
C141-E250
If a Reset or command is received while a transfer of one sector of data is in
progress, data is not written in the sector of the media where the interruption
occurred, and sectors accepted before interruption occurred is written in the
medium.
6-19
Operations
(3) Status report in the event of an error
The status report concerning an error occurring during writing onto media is
created when the next command is issued. Where the command reporting the error
status is not executed, only the error status is reported. Only the status of an error
that occurs during write processing is reported.
<Exceptions>
The error status is not reported in the following case:
•
The reset command is received after an error has occurred during writing to
media.
•
Reset processing is performed as usual. The error status that has occurred
during writing to media is not reported.
(4) Enabling and disabling
Enabling and disabling of the Write Cache function can be set only with the SET
FEATURES command. The setting does not changed even when the error status
is reported.
The initial setting is stored in the system area of media. System area information
is loaded whenever the power is turned on.
(5) Reset response
When a reset is received while cached data is stored on the data buffer, data of the
data buffer is written on the media, and reset processing is then performed. This is
true for both a hard reset and soft reset.
(6) Caching function when power supply is turned on.
The caching function is invalid until Calibration is done after the power supply is
turned on (about 7 or 8 sec). It is effective in Default after that as long as the
caching function is not invalidly set by the SET FEATURES command.
6-20
C141-E250
6.5 Write Cache
If Write Cache is enabled, there is a possibility that data transferred
from the host with the Write Cache enable command is not
completely written on disk media before the normal end interrupt is
issued.
If an unrecoverable error occurs while multiple commands that are
targets of write caching are received, the host has difficulty
determining which command caused the error. (An error report is
not issued to the host if automatic alternating processing for the
error is performed normally.) Therefore, the host cannot execute a
retry for the unrecoverable error while Write Cache is enabled. Be
very careful on this point when using this function.
If a write error occurs, an abort response is sent to all subsequent
commands.

Glossary
Actuator
Head positioning assembly. The actuator consists of a voice coil motor and head
arm. If positions the read-write (R-W) head.
AT bus
A bus between the host CPU and adapter board
ATA (AT Attachment) standard
The ATA standard is for a PC AT interface regulated to establish compatibility
between products manufactured by different vendors. Interfaces based on this
standard are called ATA interfaces.
BIOS standard for drives
The BIOS standard collectively refers to the parameters defined by the host,
which, for example, include the number of cylinders, the number of heads, and the
number of sectors per track in the drive. The physical specifications of the drive
do not always correspond to these parameters.
The BIOS of a PC AT cannot make full use of the physical specifications of these
drivers. To make the best use of these drives, a BIOS that can handle the standard
parameters of these drives is required.
Command
Commands are instructions to input data to and output data from a drive.
Commands are written in command registers.
Data block
A data block is the unit used to transfer data. A data block normally indicates a
single sector.
DE
Disk enclosure. The DE includes the disks, built-in spindle motor, actuator, heads,
and air filter. The DE is sealed to protect these components from dust.
Master (Device 0)
The master is the first drive that can operate on the AT bus. The master is daisychained with the second drive which can operate in conformity with the ATA
standard.
C141-E250
GL-1
Glossary
MTBF
Mean time between failures. The MTBF is calculated by dividing the total
operation time (total power-on time) by the number of failures in the disk drive
during operation.
MTTR
Mean time to repair. The MTTR is the average time required for a service person
to diagnose and repair a faulty drive.
PIO (Programmed input-output)
Mode to transfer data under control of the host CPU
Positioning
Sum of the seek time and mean rotational delay
Power save mode
The power save modes are idle mode, standby mode, and sleep mode.
In idle mode, the drive is neither reading, writing, nor seeking data. In standby
mode, the spindle motor is stopped and circuits other than the interface control
circuit are sleeping. The drive enters sleep mode when the host issues the SLEEP
command.
Reserved
Reserved bits, bytes, and fields are set to zero and unusable because they are
reserved for future standards.
Rotational delay
Time delay due to disk rotation. The mean delay is the time required for half a
disk rotation. The mean delay is the average time required for a head to reach a
sector after the head is positioned on a track.
Seek time
The seek time is the time required for a head to move from the current track to
another track. The seek time does not include the mean rotational delay.
Slave (Device 1)
The slave is a second drive that can operate on the AT bus. The slave is daisychained with the first drive operating in conformity with the ATA standard.

Status
The status is a piece of one-byte information posted from the drive to the host
when command execution is ended. The status indicates the command termination
state.
