Symbol-pair read channels output overlapping pairs of symbols in storage applications. Pair distance and pair error are used in the channels. In this paper, we discuss error-trapping decoding for cyclic codes over symbol-pair read channels. By putting some restrictions on the correctable pair error patterns, we propose a novel error-trapping decoding algorithm over the channels and show a circuitry for implementing the decoding algorithm. In addition, we discuss how to modify the restrictions on the correctable pair error patterns.
