The recording areal density of 201 Gb/in2 is approximately 20x greater than conventional2 magnetic tape storage media (9.
The rise in areal density will pave the way for continued growth of the [hard disk drive] industry," said Fang Zhang, an analyst forstoragesystems at IHS.
The exact areal density at which the superparamagnetic effect occurs has been a moving target, subject to much scientific and engineering debate.
Technologies like these are critical to increasing areal density to 1 Tb/in2 and beyond.
This new record areal recording density is more than 20 times the areal density used in current state of the art commercial tape drives such as the IBM TS1155 enterprise tape drive, and it enables the potential to record up to about 330 terabytes (TB) of uncompressed data on a single tape cartridge that would fit in the palm of your hand.
With SMR technology, Seagate is on track to improve areal density by up to 25 percent or 1.
2] areal density technology, the head-disk interface becomes an important scientific and technological issue.
The capacity of a tape cartridge or a disk is simply the areal density of the data multiplied by the area of the media used but is often preferably computed in tape by using the relation
The equivalent of Moore's law for magnetic recording is that the areal density of magnetically written bits increases at 60% to 100% per year.
The 1,024-tip experiment achieved an areal density of 200 gigabits (billion bits, Gb) per square inch, which translates to a potential capacity of about 0.
The drive is the first in the world to apply DTR, a breakthrough technology that boost the areal density of a perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) by a full 50 percent.
