Abstract

Disclosed is breather filter and base plate design which can keep better HDD humidity control. Breather filter is plastic case type, and air which comes from cover side goes through in the filter unit, and discharged into base side. The breather filter is surrounded by base wall with narrow gap. The air should go through very narrow channel, therefore humidity penetration could be delay. It can keep good humidity control by this system.

Breather filter is plastic case type, and air which comes from cover side goes through in the filter unit, and discharged into base side. The breather filter unit is surrounded by base wall with narrow gap (Figure 1). The air should go through very narrow space which is placed between base wall and breather filter case, and this narrow space works to be additional diffusion channel of breather filter unit (Figure 2). By this effect, humidity penetration speed from outside of HDD could be slow. As a result, it can keep good humidity control for HDD.
