Abstract
Timing recovery (also called bit synchronization) is indispensable for the signal processing in recording systems. As readback signals always suffer from unknown time-varying delays due to mechanical disturbances, timing recovery is needed to keep track of those delays and provide correct time instants for sampling and bit detection. Timing recovery is usually implemented with a phase-locked loop containing a timing error detector (TED), a loop filter and a voltage control oscillator (VCO). Three timing schemes can be seen in data storage channels. Among them, binary logic method dominates optical storage systems such as CD-ROM and DVD-ROM. It is comparatively simple, but degrades in high intersymbol interference (ISI) situations.
