Design Considerations for Magnetic Tape Used on Continuous Loop Cartridges

Document Thumbnail

Track width and tape speed have combined to place an unusually severe burden on magnetic tape intended for eight-track automobile cartridge use. The limitations of contemporary general-purpose lubricated tape are discussed and the future needs of the automobile-home cartridge application considered in terms of electromagnetic properties such as sensitivity, maximum undistorted output, output uniformity, noise level, and print-through. The mechanical requirements unique to the endless loop application are also examined.
