Practical recording channels deviate significantly from the oft-used model based on linearity and additive Gaussian noise. Among the well-known anomalies are partial erasure and transition jitter. In this paper, we first describe a precompensation technique to combat the partial erasure effect. It utilizes the unique property of the maximum transition run (MTR) code wherein all dibits are isolated. The idea is to increase the spacing between the two transitions that make up each dibit. This tends to mitigate the nonlinear amplitude reduction associated with partial erasure. Next, we consider a recording channel that is linear but subject to transition jitter. We modify the hyperplane-based detector known as 3D-110 by introducing data-dependent threshold terms. The overall complexity of the detector is small, yet this modification provides almost 2 dB of improvement relative to the original 3D-110 structure and the extended partial response maximum likelihood (EPRML) method tuned to additive Gaussian noise
