The equalizer compensates a signal distorted by transmission lines and amplifying stages, so the signal can have uniform characteristics over all frequency range. The equalizer in ODD(Optical Disc Drive) improves the stability of the extracted clock from a received signal and the readability of an inserted disc by suppressing noise and ISI(Inter-Symbol Inference). The length of marks-spaces and track pitch on discs becomes shorter as the recording density of an optical media is higher, which causes noise and ISI. And, the sensitivity about the fluctuation of physical systems is higher as the optical devices become more complicate. This paper proposes a method to select the coefficient of built-in equalizer of ODD in order to maintain the quality of signals against noise and ISI caused by system fluctuation.
