Avago Technologies has developed what it describes as the industry's first multi-reader HDD read channel in silicon. According to the company, the multi-reader HDD read channel supports the product development of next-generation HDD controllers with high-performance data rates up to 4GHz and allows Array Reader Magnetic Recording (ARMR) geared at providing areal densities greater than 1.3Tb/in2.

The Avago multi-reader HDD read channel creates the next inflection point in areal density capability. Capacity gains enabled by multi-reader channels are 10 times greater than prior generation channel technologies, stated the company. The Avago multi-reader technology is cost-effective, enabling SoC implementation in less silicon area than previous single-reader HDD SoCs. Further, multi-reader technology has no performance limitation, so it can be deployed in all HDD markets, from enterprise to consumer.

Avago multi-reader channel products are shipping to customers.
