Paper Abstract

Optical Disc Recorder parameters are examined with respect to data and control management. Data processing requirements discussed include sync timing recovery and error management. Control processing requirements discussed include disc drive interface and user computer interface. In addition, the approach to data handling using an intelligent control processor is presented. The modular hardware controller described is adaptable to disc drive configurations: 1) to support data rates exceeding 100 Mb/s 2) to support multiple turntables per drive, 3) to support a jukebox library and automatic disc loader mechanism. The controller design considerations will be given along with the selected architecture.
