High capacity and transfer rates
Fujifilm's NANOCUBIC technology has achieved LTO G5 data cartridge to have the capacity of 3.0TB by recording 1,280 data tracks within 12.65mm tape width. Also with the utilization of multi-channel recording technology, LTO G5 data cartridge featured transfer rates of up to 280Mbps.
As the tape length increases, there is a tendency of increased pressure on the hub. The potential risk of causing hub deformation may increase. This will lead to unexpected deformation, such as tape edge damage or other physical anomalies. In order to avoid such hub deformation, Fujifilm has successfully achieved both running stability in the drive and high archival life.
Improved in "NANOCUBIC technology"
For LTO G5 development, Fujifilm has further advanced the NANOCUBIC technology with the following key technologies and has successfully achieved higher recording density.
Fujifilm Servo technology
LTO Ultrium technology relies heavily on timing-based, high-precision servo control to achieve its remarkable performance levels. LTO Ultrium data cartridge uses dual servo tracks that have been precisely written along the entire length of each of its four data bands, for extremely fine placement control and redundancy in the event of tape damages.
BFR (Brominated Flame Retardants) has been eliminated from all LTO G5 mechanical parts in order to become more environmentally-friendly.
