This paper presents hardware implementation of an efficient solution to recovering gray-scale data pixels of images that have undergone interpixel interference in holographic data storage systems. The adopted algorithm, called the turbo receiver using interference-aware dual-list (TRIDL) detection, enjoys benefits of low error rate performance and low complexity. To verify the functionality and feasibility, this paper implements TRIDL detection with some circuit design techniques such as resource sharing on a field-programmable gate array.
