AbstractThis study develops the foundation of a digitally implemented control system for the radial positioning of the read/write heads of an optical disk drive system. Topics addressed are: sample rate selection, state reconstruction, closed-loop system response, disk track-following filters, and measurement noise filters. Consideration is given to the unmodeled dynamic's influence on system performance, system sensitivity to parameter variations, and a one sample computational delay. What has been concluded from this work is that the system must be further desensitized to parameter variations, and, at this stage of the development of the control scheme, neither a computational delay nor the unmodeled dynamics degrade system performance significantly.
