packing density

[′pak·iŋ ‚den·səd·ē]
(computer science)
The amount of information per unit of storage medium, as characters per inch on tape, bits per inch or drum, or bits per square inch in photographic storage.
(electronics)
The number of devices or gates per unit area of an integrated circuit.
(geology)
A measure of the extent to which the grains of a sedimentary rock occupy the gross volume of the rock in contrast to the spaces between the grains; equal to the cumulative grain-intercept length along a traverse in a thin section.

packing density

The number of bits or tracks per inch of recording surface. Also refers to the number of memory bits or other electronic components on a chip.

6-12 in Table 3, the average particle size increases whereas the packing density drops when a large amount of the chemicals is injected, suggesting the presence of particle agglomerations.
Based on this rationale, for successful hybrid formation, it is critical to have an initial OLS structure that results in a maximum increase in entropy of the organic chains to compensate for the penalty of polymer confinement The initial interlayer distance of an org-MMT is increased mainly by increasing the length of organic chains and their packing density in MMT.
Greater packing density could reduce the rate of recanalization and, therefore, re-treatment.
Its additional length provides greater volume fill for increased packing density, as well as improved neck coverage.

All of these materials are selected from the following considerations; hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity, the number of defects and inhomogeneities in the structure, different packing density of the material.
For a simple cubic arrangement the packing density is [rho] = [pi]/6, approximately 0.
The relays can be stacked side-by-side for maximum packing density.
As a result, our customers benefit from a solution that significantly outperforms manual palletising processes not only in terms of packing density and dimensional stability but also in terms of cost effectiveness and ergonomics.
In case of 3D XPoint SSDs, the individual memory cells do not require a transistor which means that the packing density will be approximately 4 times as that of DRAM.
3D integrated circuits are rapidly enabling high device packing density and Dow Corning TC-3040 Gel is enabling this trend by offering superior thermal dissipation solutions.
