Abstract

This invention relates to binary run-length limited codes for magnetic recording purposes having a fixed rate of 2/3 based on three symbols and satisfying (2,6) run-length constraints. The code is constructed using the sliding block code technique described by Adler, et al., in "Algorithms for Sliding Block Codes," IEEE Transactions on Information Theory IT 29, 5-22 (January 1983. Error propagation is limited to two data bits. The code generation is formally specified according to the following tables. (Image Omitted)
