Offering compact size and high capacity, DDS/DAT data cartridges are used for backup applications with entry-level servers. DAT 160 is a sixth-generation data cartridge system utilizing DDS technology and realizing 160GB capacity with compression. The DAT 160 drives are backwards compatible with DDS-4 and DAT 72 data cartridges.
To develop universally compatible DAT 160 media, TDK worked with Hewlett-Packard from the initial stages of development.
TDK's DC-DAT160 data cartridge utilizes Super Finavinx metal magnetic particles, a high-precision coating process, and other advanced tape manufacturing technologies to realize maximum capacity and durability.
