Abstract

Surface Visualizer is a tool for use by engineering, product assurance, and manufacturing to process the manufacturer's defect data for high-capacity, fixed disk drives. The graphic capabilities of a personal computer high-resolution color display are used to present surface defects in a graphic form. The primary method of display is a scale representation of a disk surface with all defects occurring on that surface in a highlighted color.
