Sony AIT Tape Media Specifications

Part Numbers; SDX1-25C, SDX1-35C, SDX2-50C, SDX1-300C, SDX4-200C, SDX5-400C

Sony AIT (Advanced Intelligent Tape) format is intelligently engineered to stand apart – no other tape cartridge features both an MIC chip (the brains) and a pure metal magnetic layer designed for maximum capacity and longevity (the brawn).

MIC (Memory in Cassette)- The AIT tape cartridges feature a built-in flash memory chip that stores directory and operational information. The result is rapid access to desired data and greatly reduced loading and ejection times.

DLC(Diamond Like Carbon) Coating- The tape surface is protected by a smooth carbon coating that is nearly as hard as diamond and 20 times harder than metal oxides. The benefit is maximum reliability and life.

AME (Advanced Metal Evaporated) Tape- Now Sony delivers 100% pure cobalt for high retentivity. Patented process for depositing a pure metal magnetic layer directly on the basefilm without adhesive or binders. The benefit from this AME technology is maximum recording performance.

100GB native, 260GB compressed capacity AIT-3 is scalable and backward compatible with previous generations. Delivers data at a fast and efficient 12Mb throughput rate.

The AIT recording technology provides uncompressed capacities including 25GB, 35GB, 50GB and 100GB using the compact 8mm cartridge form-factor. The higher compression specifications for capacity and performance for the AIT family are achieved through the incorporation of the Adaptive Loss less Data Compression (ALDC) technology, which delivers an average 2.6 to 1 compression ratio.
