With the massive amount of data produced and stored each year, reliable storage and retrieval of information is more crucial than ever. Robust coding and decoding techniques are critical for correcting errors and maintaining data integrity. Comprising chapters thoughtfully selected from the highly popular Coding and Signal Processing for Magnetic Recording Systems, Advanced Error Control Techniques for Data Storage Systems is a finely focused reference to the state-of-the-art error control and modulation techniques used in storage devices. The book begins with an introduction to error control codes, explaining the theory and basic concepts underlying the codes. Building on these concepts, the discussion turns to modulation codes, paying special attention to run-length limited sequences, followed by maximum transition run (MTR) and spectrum shaping codes. It examines the relationship between constrained codes and error control and correction systems from both code-design and architectural perspectives as well as techniques based on convolution codes. With a focus on increasing data density, the book also explores multi-track systems, soft decision decoding, and iteratively decodable codes such as Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) Codes, Turbo codes, and Turbo Product Codes. Advanced Error Control Techniques for Data Storage Systems offers a comprehensive collection of theory and techniques that is ideal for specialists working in the field of data storage systems.
