The mechatronic servo system is the major theme studied in this book. In
particular, the servo system adopted in an electric servo motor is explained in
this chapter. Several items of its utilization from the development stage to the
present as well as its performances. The so-called mechanism machine (called
as mechatronic servo system at the following), i.e.

This book describes high-speed precision motion control technologies which
are developed and applied to hard disk drives (HDDs). The first feature of
this book is that all the editors and the authors are engineers and professors
who are directly engaged in the study and development of HDD servo control.
Each author describes the control technologies that he developed, and most of
these technologies have already been successfully applied to mass production
Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary branch of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and software engineering that is concerned with integrating electrical and mechanical engineering to create hybrid systems. In this way, machines can be automated through the use of electric motors, servo-mechanisms, and other electrical systems in conjunction with special software. A common example of a mechatronics system is a CD-ROM drive. Mechanical systems open and close the drive, spin the CD and move the laser, while an optical system reads the data on the CD and converts it to bits.
