Paper Abstract

A review of the performance requirements for the writing components of high density tape recording heads is given in the context of multichannel linear tape head arrays. A brief tutorial of head operation is given. This is followed by a discussion of pole materials and head array architectures. Technical advances which have led to increases in data rate and recording density are identified.
