Off-track condition in magnetic recording systems degrades the system performance. It is typically detected and adjusted by the servo control loop. In this work, we propose an off-track detection based on the readback signals and improve the bit error performance using an asymmetric target depending on the detected off-track direction. Specifically, we investigate the effects of off-track events on the target-shaping equalizer coefficients when the generalized partial-response target (GPR) is fixed. For a 3 × 3 channel matrix of bit patterned media recording (BPMR) system, the asymmetric targets offer the gain of about 1 to 2 dB at BER=10-4 for the TMR level of 20% to 25%.
