A variety of CD and DVD recordable and rewritable disc formats have or shortly will transition into mass market products. Apart from the inherent manufacturing complexity, this development has created very demanding requirements on unit manufacturing cost, production yields, and quality. The dynamic storage marketplace has placed additional, constantly evolving demands on product capabilities. All of this is reflected in the current approach to optical disc manufacturing equipment through their emphasis on modularity, flexibility, and upgradeability. The developments in the CD-R arena encapsulate and serve to highlight these issues and will be used as a case study.
