The CP2124 drive is designed to operate either as a Master drive (C
Drive) or a Slave Drive (D Drive). This feature is dependent on two
drive settings; the status of hardware Jumper M/S and the firmware
setting of a feature bit. When (M/S) is closed, and the feature bit
is set, the drive will assume the role of a Master Drive. When (M/S)
is open, and the feature reset, the drive will act as the Slave. In
single drive configurations M/S must remain in the closed position.

The drive may be mounted in any attitude!

Recommended Mounting Configuration
This CP2124 is designed to be used in applications where the unit
may experience shock and vibrations at greater levels than larger
and heavier disk drives.

The design features which allow greater shock tolerance are the use
of rugged heads and media, a dedicated landing zone, closed loop
servo positioning and specially designed motor and actuator

Four (4) side mounting points and four (4) bottom mounting points are
provided to the customer. The drive is mounted using 3mm x 0.5mm
thread screw. The screw insertion depth should not exceed 4mm into
the mounting holes. The system integrator should allow ventilation
to the drive to ensure reliable drive operation over the operating
temperature range.

For additional vibration isolation, an external suspension system
may be used.

Interface Connector
The CP2124 drive has a 44 pin right angle interface/power connector
mounted on the PCB. The recommended mating connector is DuPont part
number 69764-044 or equivalent. The maximum cable lenght is two

Diagnostic Routines
The microprocessor performs diagnostics upon application of power.
If an error is detected the drive will not come ready.

Magnetic Field
The externally induced magnetic flux density may not exceed 6 gauss
(DC - 700KHz) or 1.0 gauss (700KHz - 1.5MHz) as measured at the
drive surface.

Acoustic Sound Emission
Pressure: The sound pressure level for the operating drive will not
exceed 34 dB(A) max. at a distance of 1 meter from the drive.

Seek Times

       |Physical track to track      max. |   5 ms |
       |Logical                      max. |  10 ms |
       |               Average msec. typ. |  17    |
       |               Average msec. max. |  35    |
       |Latency                msec. avg. |   7.99 |
       The timing is measured through the interface with the drive
       operating at nominal DC input voltages. The timing also assumes
             - BIOS and PC system hardware dependency have been
               subtracted from timing measurements.

             - The drive is operated using its translation parameters.

       The average seek time is determined by averaging the seek time
       for a minimum of 1000 seeks of random length over the surface
       of the disk.

Functional Description
The CP2124 contains all necessary mechanical and electronic parts to
interpret control signals, position the recording heads over the
desired track, read and write data, and provide a contaminant free
environment for the heads and disks.

Read/Write and Control Electronics
One integrated circuit is mounted within the sealed enclosure in
close proximity to the read/write heads. Its function is to provide
head selection, read preamplification, and write drive circuitry.

The microprocessor-controlled circuit card provides the remaining
electronic functions which include:

        - Read/Write Circuitry
        - Rotary Actuator Control
        - Interface Control
        - Spin Speed Control
        - Dynamic Braking
        - Power Management

A microprocessor performs diagnostics upon application of power. If
an error is detected the drive will not come READY. At power down or
the start of STANDBY MODE or SLEP MODE the heads are automatically
retracted to the inner diameter of the disk and are latched and
parked on a landing zone that is inside the data tracks.

Drive Mechanism
A brushless DC direct drive motor rotates the spindle at 3486 RPM.
The motor/spindle assembly is dynamically balanced to provide minimal
mechanical run-out to the disks and to reduce vibration of the HDA. A
dynamic brake is used to provide a fast stop to the spindle motor
and return the heads to the landing zone inside the data tracks
when power is removed or upon initiation of STANDBY MODE.

Air Filtration System
Within the sealed enclosure, a 0.3 micron filter which provides a
clean environment for the heads and disks.

Head Positioning Mechanism
The read/write heads for the CP2124 is supported by a mechanism
coupled to the voice coil actuator.

Read/Write Heads and Disks
Data is recorded on 65mm diameter thin film disk through micro-
miniature THIN FILM or MIG heads.

The drive is designed to be used in applications where the unit may
experience shock and vibrations at greater levels than larger and
heavier disk drives.

Universal Translate Mode
Conner has established a Universal Translate Mode which enables the
user to configure the drive in an AT environment to any cylinder,
head, and sector configuration desired. The translate configuration
is limited only by the maximum capacity of the drive. Upon initial
power up to the drive it will default to a predetermined configura-
tion shown below:

          Cylinders        Heads       Sectors
 CP-2124     762             8           39

Error Correction
The CP2124 drive use a Reed-Solomon code to perform error detection
and correction. The error correction polynominal is capable of
correcting one error burst with a maximum of 22 bits or 2 error
bursts of up to 11 bits each, per 512 byte block. Single bursts of
11 bits or less are corrected with no performance degradation.

Execute Drive Diagnostic
Command Number: 90 hex

This command performs the internal diagnostic tests implemented by
the drive. The diagnostic tests are only executed upon receipt of
this command.

The drive sets BSY immediately upon of the command. If the drive is a
master, the drive performs the diagnostic tests and saves the
results. It then checks to see if a slave drive is present and waits
up to 5 seconds for the slave to complete its diagnostics. If the
slave successfully completes its diagostics, it asserts -HOST PDIAG.
If unsuccessful, the master drive resets BSY in the Status register
and generates an interrupt.

The value in the Error register should be viewed as a unique 8-bit
code and not as the single-bit flags defined previously. The inter-
face registers are set to initial values except for the Error

The table below details the codes in the Error register and a
corresponding explanation.

Error Code Description
01 hex No error detected
02 hex Format device error
03 hex Sector buffer error
8x hex Slave drive failed

Additional codes may be implemented at the manufacturer's option.

If the slave drive fails diagnostics, the master drive shall "OR" 80
hex with its own status and load that code into the Error register.
If the slave drive passes diaagnostics or there is no slave drive
connected, the master drive shall sect bit 7 of the Error register
Task File to 0.
