The shingled magnetic recording (SMR) system is influenced by not only jitter-like medium noise from adjacent bits in the down-track direction but also intertrack interference (ITI) from the adjacent tracks. In this paper, we investigate the relationship between the recording pattern and the decoding reliability by classifying the log-likelihood ratio at the a posteriori probability decoder output according to the recording patterns under an SMR R-W channel specification of 4 Tb/in2 by computer simulation. The result shows that the decoding reliability for the recording pattern '010' heavily affected by transition jitter is the lowest and little improved even if the influence of ITI is mitigated by a 2-D finite-impulse response filter.
