today's digitized society, optical disc drives play a very
important role. Like socks in shoes, optical disc drives in PCs
are simply indispensable! As a medium to transfer or store
important data files such as digital property, optical disc
drives already have an irreplaceable key position.
In this era where time is money, everybody is looking for
high speed and high efficiency. For data transferring and backup
functions the rotation speed is therefore of the essence.
Optical disc drives nowadays use high rotation speeds that
average over 10.000 rotations per minute, which in comparison is
significantly faster than rotations speeds used in other
consumer goods. For example, a walkman runs at an average of 400
rotations per minute.
At these extremely high rotation speeds, the safety and
stability of the optical disc drives become very important.
Designing a safe and stable optical disc drive is a test of
skills for every manufacturer, including BTC.
High quality products do not only require powerful functions
and good features, but perhaps even more important is their
compliance with the laws of ergonomics. A good example is noise
cancellation technology. BTC has done a successful job in
finding ways to prevent noise by adopting a special structure
design. This technology is called Sealed Acoustic Noise
Isolation System (SANI). During high rotation speeds it has the
effect of damping the noise by isolating the source of the
noise. At the same time it makes the structure stronger,
effectively blocks out dirt and lessens vibration.
