In this paper, we shall propose an integrated architecture that effectively combines the use of low pass filtering techniques with a phase locked loop design to overcome degradations in the seek function resulting from the presence of defects on the recording medium. A performance evaluation study is included to demonstrate the superior performance delivered by the present scheme over a wide range of seek velocities.
