Seagate Launches Design Service Centers

Seagate Technology has opened what it calls Design Service Centers (DSC), which is a group of facilities created to offer a full range of research and development, design, and testing services to all Seagate customers.

With locations in Colorado, Minnesota, and Singapore, the company said each center is equipped with the appropriate testing labs and technologies to assist Seagate customers through each step of the design and development process for their storage-based solutions.

According to Seagate, DSC helps Seagate customers transform product ideas into reliable storage-driven products. By working with DSC and solving problems early in the lab instead of later in development or out in the field, the company said customers are assured that they will be able to bring products to market faster, with lower overall cost and greater reliability.

Seage said the DSCs provide comprehensive testing facilities to test for a number of applications and environments. These include thermal performance testing; shock and vibration testing; an anechoic chamber, which measures the amount and quality of acoustic output to improve acoustic performance; a compatibility Lab; rotational vibration index testing; packaging design; and care and handling training.
