Abstract: TODAY, FLOPPY disks are used in small data processing systems such as personal computers, minicomputers and terminals. Because the recording density of a floppy disk is low, existing floppy disk controller devices arc required to handle serial data at the rate of only up t o 500kbs and detect errors by the simple cyclic redundancy check. Recently, small size hard disks, namely Winchester disks, have been growing in popularity and used in small data processing systems in view of their larger storage capacity a…
