Thailand is currently the world’s second largest hard disk drives (HDD) manufacturing base and exporter with around 20% of the world market share. The HDD industry has created huge demand of employment and local second/third tiers of HDD parts manufacturers. It has also contributed significantly to the growth of electrical and electronics industry in Thailand. Therefore, the government has pledged to support the HDD industry to bring Thailand to the world’s largest HDD manufacturing base and exporter. To support the government initiatives, KMITL and National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC) of National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) have jointly set up a collaborative research center in data storage technology and applications in 2006. The center is one of the three networking national research centers that will support and strengthen the HDD industry in Thailand.. The mission of the center is to provide higher education and advance research and knowledge in data storage technology, including optical, magnetic and future emerging data storage technologies.
