Description / Abstract:

This standardp rovidest he mechanical,p hysical, and magnetic properties of a low-friction disk with a diameter of 130 mm (5.118 inches) and with a typical recording density of 38 tracks per millimeter (tpmm) (960 tracks per inch (tpi)) and 402 flux transitions per millimeter (ftpmm) (10 200 flux transitions per inch (ftpi)) at a radius of 33,02 mm (1.300 inches).

This standardd efinest he requirementsa nd supporting test methodsn ecessaryto ensurea cceptable performancel evelsi n the context of the generala pplication refeiencedi n 1.1. It is distinct from a specification in that it delineatesa minimum of restrictions consistentw ith compatibility of media characteristics.
