Increasing linear density by advanced encoding, allowing increased bit density without increasing the magnetic recorded density on the tape
To address the increasing demand for storage, capacities are expected to reach more than a terabyte on a single tape cartridge by the end of this decade through aggressive leaps in bit density and track density.
A smaller aperture lens than the one currently used can produce a spot on the disk that will enable "higher capacities by achieving higher track density and higher bit density, while using low cost laser diodes that are in volume today," according to a company white paper.
TI's exceptional SRAM bit density at 130 nm, another common benchmark measurement for chip manufacturers, allows up to 24 Mbits of SRAM to fit on a single device.
Additionally, with planned improvements in track spacing and bit density along a track, the LTO format will allow future drives to offer capacities up to 800GB.
This increase is driven partly by increased linear bit density on the disk and partly by increases in rotational speed.
This achievement is especially important because of the extremely high linear bit density demonstrated using conventional longitudinal recording," said Tom Porter, Seagate's Chief Technical Officer.
