A 53.33 Mb/s experimental extended multi-level decision feedback equalization (M2DFE) read channel has been designed and implemented using discrete-components. The forward equalizer is the same as that of MDFE, consisting of two analog Bi-quads. The core of the detector contains two analog critical loops named as top and bottom MDFE loops and two digital error computation blocks (DEC) that compute, square, accumulate, and compare errors of the two MDFE loops when M2DFE is in erasure modes. The bench test confirms that M2DFE has 1 dB gain in signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and about 30% reduction in error propagation over MDFE under the same test conditions. The experiment also shows M2DFE performance is relatively robust against the variations of the parameter settings such as the values of inner and outer levels, and the threshold of the slicers of the two MDFE loops
