Paper Abstract

Historically, instrumentation tape recording systems have maintained state-of-the-art magnetic performance parameters in the areas of storage density, storage capacity, data throughput rates and cost-per-bit. In order to compare instrumentation equipment with other competing technologies, this paper presents important performance parameters for several data storage systems which directly compares the current status of instrumentation, disc and solid state storage devices, A discussion of the potential applications of instrumentation systems to medical imagery is also included. In addition, the technology base supporting instrumentation recorders is examined and anticipated improvements in performance are projected over the next several years. Advances in rotating head recorders are expected to show particularly exciting improvements in storage density and capacity.
