NEW YORK (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale patents disclosing a comprehensive data loss prevention solution for all hard disk drives (HDDs) that have the common unrecovered read error problems, from Starvolt Inc. Based on recent shipment history, future potential of the addressable market is hundreds of millions of HDD units a year worldwide. This IP package is available via sealed bid, with a bidding deadline of November 20, 2014.
“This portfolio should be of interest particularly to hard disk drive manufacturers. The cost to implement the technology is minimal, and once implemented, data processing performance and data availability are increased significantly,” says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.
Key Characteristics & Benefits
Disk drives are subject to “grown” defects during field use, causing data errors to occur in read operations. “Spare” sectors are provided to accommodate reallocated defective sectors and/or marginally defective sectors.
This portfolio discloses an apparatus for providing a reassignable log for those unrecovered and marginally recovered data blocks that require reallocation to be initiated by the storage controller. When any such data block has a recurrence of error during a next WRITE, the disk drive simply posts an “unrecovered write error,” forcing the storage controller to initiate a write error recovery procedure leading to reallocation of that data block.
Forward citing companies include Seagate, Cirrus Logic, Hitachi, HP, Netapp, and Bank of America.
