AbstractAn erasure type error correction system for parallel high density digital tape recorders is described. The system can correct for error bursts of any length occuring on either single tracks or any two tracks simultaneously. Calculations of theoretical performance are compared with measured performance and a figure of merit for error correction systems is used to compare typical systems.
