Partial response signaling is the most popular channel coding in the readback channel of hard disk devices(HDD). There are different signaling mechanism according to the recording density in HDD. In the project, you have to model the magnetic recording channel for various recording density. And for master students, the computer simulation of partial response signaling should be done. you must construct a simulation platform based on simple MLSE detector or using iterative detector.

Prerequisites: programming in c or matlab; priciples of digital communication and discrete signal processing.
