  • Patent number: 11282579
    Abstract: A semiconductor memory device includes: a memory cell array; a peripheral circuit connected to this memory cell array, the peripheral circuit outputting data in the memory cell array as a read data in response to input of a command set, the command set including a first command, address data, and a second command; a first electrode capable of being used in input of the command set and output of the read data; and a second electrode capable of supplying electric power to the peripheral circuit. A current flowing in the second electrode at a second timing is larger than a current flowing in the second electrode at a first timing, the first timing being a timing at which the first command is inputted, the second timing being a timing before which the input of the address data is started and after which an input of the second command is finished.

  • Publication number: 20220075540
    Abstract: A memory device stores data for a host. In one approach, a trim operation is initiated for the memory device (e.g., based on a context that is determined for the memory device). During the trim operation, read and/or write tests are performed on one or more portions of a non-volatile storage media of the memory device. One or more characteristics associated with the memory device are observed during the test. Based on these observed characteristics, one or more trim settings are determined. Then, the memory device is updated to store the determined trim settings to configure subsequent read or write access to the non-volatile storage media (e.g., access performed in response to commands from a host).

  • Patent number: 11243711
    Abstract: A data storage device stores data in non-volatile memory. In one approach, a method includes: storing software in a compressed format in a first mode (e.g., an SLC mode) in a non-volatile memory; exposing, while the software is stored in the first mode, the non-volatile memory to a temperature greater than a predetermined threshold; determining that the temperature of the non-volatile memory has fallen below the predetermined threshold; and in response to determining that the temperature of the non-volatile memory has fallen below the predetermined threshold: decompressing the stored software, and storing the decompressed software in a second mode (e.g., TLC mode) in the non-volatile memory. The second mode has a storage density higher than the first mode.

  • Publication number: 20220019527
    Abstract: A data storage device monitors a storage media temperature and adjusts data storage operations of the storage device based on the monitored and/or a predicted future temperature of the storage media. In one approach, data is stored in a first mode (e.g., a TLC mode) in a non-volatile storage media. One or more temperatures associated with the non-volatile storage media are monitored using at least one sensor to collect sensor data. The manner of storage of the data in the storage device is adjusted based on the collected sensor data. The adjusting comprises compressing the data to provide compressed data, and storing the compressed data in a second mode (e.g., an SLC mode) in the non-volatile storage media.
