—This paper proposes efficient distance-enhancing constrained codes with parity-check (PC) constraints for data storage channels. We first propose simple and efficient finite-state encoding methods to design various distance-enhancing constrained codes, including a repeated minimum transition runlength (RMTR) code for optical recording channels, as well as(More)
A general and systematic code design methodology is proposed to efficiently combine constrained codes with PC codes for data storage channels. The proposed constrained PC code includes two component codes: the normal constrained (NC) code and the parity-related constrained (PRC) code. The NC code can be any distance-enhancing constrained code, such as the(More)
