DAT 160 / 320 (2007 – )

DAT 160 and DAT 320 are later generations of Digital Data Storage (DDS), itself derived from Digital Audio Tape (DAT).

DAT 160 was launched in 2007 by HP and stored 80 GB of uncompressed data. This increase in storage was through an increase in the width of tape used, to 8mm over the previous 3.81mm used in DDS. To accomodate the wider tape, the shell is also thicker, but DAT 160 drives can still read later generations of DDS tape.

DAT 320 was launched in 2009 and can store 160 GB uncompressed.
