Abstract

Disclosed is the integrated method to minimize the increase of Power On Reset (POR) time when the following two important functions during POR sequence are implemented. One function is the sweeping of the particles on disk surfaces using slider edge for Thermal Asperity (TA) prevention. Another is the measurement and calibration of tension of flexible cable (Flex_table generation). This integrated method executes the Flex_table generation utilizing the seeks for sweeping the particles.
