Abstract

Disclosed is a voice coil motor-driven actuator assembly configured for use in a PCMCIA Type-2 hard disk drive. Two designs are described, and both are configured to provide stiffness and rigidity to the end of the disk drive that is held by a user during insertion and removal into and from the using system, and thereby restricting the case from deforming.
