Flexure Design for High Shock

      Disclosed is a new Flexure design used for Suspensions in Hard
Disk Drives (HDD).

      When a large shock is applied to an HDD, the suspensions inside
the HDD might contact with the disks and make dings on the disks.

      In order to prevent such damages, the flexure sharp edges which
locate in the middle of the suspention are cut away shown in the
Figure.  Rounded edges of the flexure are preferable.
