Iterative decoding of turbo product codes over PR-equalized Lorentzian channels with colored noise Conference Paper uri icon


  • Following the trend of turbo codes and low density parity check (LDPC) codes, single-parity turbo product codes (TPC/SPC) are being seriously considered for application in future high-density recording systems. Recent work on TPC/SPC codes has focused on ideal partial response channels with additive white Gaussian noise. This work extends the investigation to a more realistic equalized Lorentzian channel model where imperfect channel shaping, colored noise and recording density effect are taken into consideration. The effect of precoding is discussed and the interleaving gain is quantified. Simulation results of the turbo decoding system with both channel models are presented. A comprehensive evaluation is conducted, including BER performance, code rate selection, equalization targets and error statistics, which demonstrate TPC/SPC codes to be a promising candidate for future high-density recording systems.
