We propose two techniques for the low-density parity-check (LDPC) coded partial response channel with run-length-limited (RLL) constraints. The first is a modification of the selective flipping technique so that side information is not needed. The second is based on the estimation of flipped bits for the selective flipping technique. The second technique can achieve significant performance improvement over the simple selective flipping technique either with side information or without side information. We also incorporate these two techniques into a known technique to design LDPC coded recording systems that can meet strict RLL constraints without performance degradation.
