  • Publication number: 20230400988
    Abstract: A data storage device having improved protections for in-flight data during a safety event, such as an autonomous-driving-vehicle collision. In an example embodiment, in response to a distress-mode indication signal, the device controller operates to prioritize more-recent data with respect to older counterparts of the same data stream for flushing from the volatile-memory buffers to the non-volatile memory. In addition, the device controller may operate to positively bias the flushed data towards better survivability and/or more-reliable routing.

  • Patent number: 11829218
    Abstract: Aspects of a storage device are provided which apply advanced thermal throttling in response to temperature changes based on multiple thermal power states for different types of cells, such as SLCs and MLCs. Initially, a controller determines that a temperature of the memory meets a thermal throttling threshold of a plurality of thermal throttling thresholds. Subsequently, the controller transitions into a thermal power state of a plurality of thermal power states when the temperature meets the thermal throttling threshold. The controller applies a thermal mitigation configuration associated with the thermal power state. The controller then determines that the temperature of the memory has reached a thermal equilibrium in the thermal power state based on the thermal mitigation configuration. Storage device performance is thus improved through advanced thermal throttling without compromising data integrity.

  • Patent number: 11822401
    Abstract: Aspects of a storage device are provided that apply history-based prediction modeling in advanced thermal throttling. Initially, a controller determines a temperature prediction based one or more thermal mitigation parameters using a history-based prediction model. Subsequently, the controller determines whether the temperature prediction indicates that an actual temperature of the memory is expected to meet a thermal throttling threshold of a plurality of thermal throttling thresholds. The controller then transitions into a thermal power state of a plurality of thermal power states when the temperature prediction indicates that the actual temperature of the memory is expected to meet the thermal throttling threshold. The controller applies a thermal mitigation configuration associated with the thermal power state and determines that the temperature of the memory has reached a thermal equilibrium based on the thermal mitigation configuration.

  • Publication number: 20230367377
    Abstract: Aspects of a storage device are provided that apply advanced thermal throttling with multi-tier extreme thermal throttling. Initially, a controller determines whether a first temperature measurement indicates that a temperature of the memory meets a first thermal threshold associated with a first-tier extreme thermal throttling or a second thermal threshold associated with a second-tier extreme thermal throttling. Subsequently, the controller enables the first-tier extreme thermal throttling when the temperature measurement indicates that the temperature of the memory meets the first thermal threshold, or the controller enables the second-tier extreme thermal throttling when the temperature measurement indicates that the temperature of the memory meets the second thermal threshold. The controller then determines whether a second temperature measurement indicates that the temperature of the memory has decreased to avoid thermal shutdown of the storage device.
