  • Patent number: 10877832
    Abstract: Feedback relating to errors in memory operations on a plurality of memory cells is received by a memory sub-system. At least one processing level corresponding to a program distribution is updated based on the feedback to adjust an error measure between pages of the plurality of memory cells and to adjust a read window budget within a page of the plurality of cells. The updating of the at least one processing level is based on information for the at least one processing level that is stored in a data-structure.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10872008
    Abstract: Exemplary methods, apparatuses, and systems include a memory controller receiving a first physical address corresponding to a logical address and data and initiating storage of the data at the first physical address. The memory controller sends a message indicating that the data has been successfully stored at the first physical address before determining if the data was successfully stored at the first physical address. Upon determining that the data failed to store at the first physical address, the memory controller retrieves the data from a volatile memory associated with the first physical address. The memory controller sends a request and receives a second physical address for the retrieved data. The memory controller initiates storage of the data at the second physical address.

  • Patent number: 10872039
    Abstract: A controller selects a redundancy context for eviction in response to a request for a redundancy context. The redundancy context includes buffer data and an identifier. The redundancy context is evicted by instructing a redundancy component to send the buffer data and identifier to a memory component to store in a buffer as an evicted context. The controller instructs the memory component to provide the evicted context for storage in a controller buffer. A new redundancy context is allocated to the requester following the eviction.

  • Publication number: 20200117373
    Abstract: Exemplary methods, apparatuses, and systems include a memory controller detecting that an asynchronous power loss event has occurred. Upon determining that a write operation is in progress to a first type of non-volatile memory element, the memory controller cancels the write operation and retrieves data associated with the write operation. The memory controller sends a request for a second physical address pointing to a second type of non-volatile memory element. Upon receiving a second physical address corresponding to a logical address, the memory controller stores the data at the second physical address.

  • Patent number: 10316760
    Abstract: A system and methods are provided for controlling turboshaft engines. In one embodiment, a method includes receiving input signals for a collective lever angle (CLA) command and real-time power turbine speed (NP) of an engine, determining system data for engine effectors by the control unit based on the input signals for the collective lever angle (CLA) command and the real-time power turbine speed (NP) based on an integrated model for the turboshaft engine including a model of a gas generator section of the turboshaft engine and a model of a power turbine and rotor load section of the turboshaft engine. The method may also include determining control output based on model-based multi-variable control including optimization formulation and a constrained optimization solver. The method may also include outputting one or more control signals for control of the turboshaft engine.
