Fujifilm LTO Ultrium6 Data Cartridge -First LTO in the world produced with Barium Ferrite Magnetic Particles announced
Fujifilm today announced the introduction of the TO Ultrium 6 Data Cartridge a magnetic tape media certified by the Linear Tape Open (LTO) Technology Provider Companies (TPC). Fujifilm achieved the super high compressed capacity of 6.25TB with a transfer rate up to 400MB/second by applying Fujifilm’s original Barium Ferrite magnetic particles to the advanced NANOCUBIC technology. The biggest difference of “LTO Ultrium 6 Data Cartridge” (LTO6) from the past generations is that this time Fujifilm selects to use Barium Ferrite magnetic particles instead of using the current metal particles.
Barium Ferrite can maintain its magnetic characteristic even when particle size is small; resulting in an LTO6 cartridge with better coercivity and frequency characteristic compared to the past generation cartridges. In addition, Fujifilm LTO6 cartridges with Barium Ferrite have a long archival life (over 30 years) and show good performance when used with older drives that have aged from repeated use.
