2-D magnetic recording (TDMR) exploits 2-D signal processing using the waveforms reproduced by array head from the intended and adjacent tracks to mitigate the effects of intertrack interference. However, an array head has the issue on the degradation of bit error rate (BER) performance due to head skew. In this paper, we evaluate the BER performance of TDMR R/W channel with head skew under a specification of 4 Tbit/in 2 employing low-density parity check coding and iterative decoding system using a 2-D finite-impulse response filter by computer simulation. The results show that our system can achieve the reliable BER performances by appropriately setting the reader scanning positions at the head skew angle between 0° and 3°.
