Abstract

Disclosed is a technique to cancel the temperature coefficient of a shock sensor in a hard disk drive. A portable hard disk drive has shock detection function in order to protect off-track write in a portable hard disk drive. To detect the shock, a shock sensor is used, however, the sensor has temperature coefficient in sensitivity. To cancel the sensitivity fluctuation, the controller measures temperature and compensate sensor amplifier gain or detection threshold. 1
