Title (EN) HARD DISK DRIVE MODULE AND RECEPTACLE THEREFOR
(FR) MODULE DE DISQUES DURS ET RECEPTACLE POUR CE MODULE
Abstract:
(EN) A portable hard disk drive module (24) enclosing all of the operative components of the disk drive (52) is removably received by a receptacle (22) in a microcomputer system (10). The disk drive module (24) and the receptacle (22) each have an electrical connector (26, 36) and these connectors are coupled when the module (24) is in an operating position within the receptacle (22). The connectors comprise the sole interface between the operative components of the disk drive (52) and the remainder of the computer system (10). The receptacle (22) includes a transport mechanism (92) for moving the module (24) from a load position to the operating position and from the operating position to a module unload position. Accordingly, movement of the module (24) between these positions in the receptacle (22) is completely under machine control.
(FR) Un module portatif (24) de disques durs renfermant tous les composants de l'entraînement (52) de disques durs est reçu de manière amovible dans un receptacle (22) dans un système à micro-ordinateur (10). Le module (24) d'entraînement de disques et le receptacle (22) ont chacun un connecteur électrique (26, 36), ces connecteurs étant couplés lorsque le module (24) se trouve dans une position de fonctionnement dans le receptacle (22). Les connecteurs comprennent la seule interface existant entre les composants de l'entraînement (52) des disques et le reste du système ordinateur (10). Le receptacle (22) comprend un mécanisme de transport (92) pour déplacer le module (24) d'une position de chargement vers la position de fonctionnement et de la position de fonctionnement vers une position de décharge du module. En conséquence, le mouvement du module (24) entre ces positions dans le receptacle (22) se fait entièrement sous la commande de la machine.
