Read-Rite Corporation Profile


Read-Rite scientists and engineers continuously exploit the capabilities of materials and push the boundaries of magnetics and miniaturization in their designs of new recording heads. The principal goal of the Company's extensive research and development effort is enabling our customers to offer data storage devices with even greater areal density, that is, the ability to store increasingly large quantities of data in ever-smaller areas of thin-film disks in computer hard drives or other media. Increases in areal density drive down disk drive costs and influence portability, speed and other features of computers and other computing products.
