Submitted by: Jordan Robinson, 1056189 Jiyong Kim, 1066572 Kuan-Yun Chen, 1048620 Compact Disc Drive Design Review The current, conventional design of compact disc drives primarily uses three mechanisms to read data from properly formatted compact discs. These three main mechanisms are the drive motor, laser and lens, and the tracking mechanism. The drive motor’s function in the compact disk drive is to rotate the housing that seats the compact disk at some constant linear or angular velocity, depending on the design. The angular velocity of a conventional constant linear velocity drive is between five hundred and two hundred rotations per minute, depending on the...
