Abstract

A circuit is provided for simulating data signals obtained from a magnetic medium read operation. Utilized is an EPROM (Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory or ROM (Read-Only Memory) as a source for driving sequenced signals which, to a media control circuit, resemble an actual read operation. Eliminated is a need to incorporate, operate, and maintain an actual magnetic media reader device in an environment structured to test media control circuits.
