VDA 240-301: Übersicht Testfälle für HDD-Laufwerke im Automobil / Test Case Book of Automotive Hard Disc Drives (Version 01/2014) - Gruppenlizenz (group license), AGB (GTC) Art. 10, 2

The automobile manufacturers organized in the VDA have laid down their conceptions about the requirements and the measurement procedures for automotive hard disc drives and have compiled them in this recommendation.

This document is a directive for the development of HDD devices. The drive supplier shall fulfil the requirements in the specification and validate them by an OEM-certified media drive test house.

The certification of the drive is valid for the particular validated hardware and software. Upcoming changes shall be represented to the affected OEM. Depending on the drive changes the partial or total requalification of the drive shall be done (consultation with the affected OEM is required.

The manufacturers of test media named in this document are just exemplarily named and not considered to be an exhaustive list. If the defined specifications are adhered to it is possible to use test media of manufacturers not named in this document.

Due to the fact that the technique of the standard automotive hard disc drives permanently changes, the work on this test case book is not completed yet.

Since the way things stand at the moment makes a publication seem sensible, however, it was decided to pass on this first draft of the VDA-Specification for standard automatic hard disc drives to the manufacturers of hard disc drives for the automotive industry.

This paper can therefore be merely an orientation help. For definite applications only the agreements between the business partners apply.

Please consider aditionally the specification in the also existing VDA 240-300.
