Paper Abstract

Before detecting signals from magnetic storage devices, we must derive a clock signal via a timing-recovery technique. We concentrate on decision-directed timing-recovery schemes that operate at baud rate. While magnetic recording readback signals suffer from intersymbol interference and noise, this study also considers possibly asymmetric pulse shapes caused by magneto-resistive readback heads. We show performance results based on baud-rate sampling and introduce new techniques to combat pulse asymmetry.
