  • Patent number: 9779016
    Abstract: An integrated circuit system, and a method of operation thereof, including: a memory unit having a volatile memory device with data and a non-volatile controller unit; a memory unit controller of the non-volatile controller unit for receiving a snoop signal for indicating an error; a non-volatile device of the memory unit for synchronously receiving data of the volatile memory device based on the snoop signal, the data autonomously copied without any intervention from outside the memory unit to prevent loss of the data; and an in-band command received by the memory unit, for autonomously restoring the data to the volatile memory device from the non-volatile device without any intervention from outside the memory unit.

  • Patent number: 9754634
    Abstract: A method of manufacture of the memory management system includes: fabricating a dual in-line memory module carrier; mounting a volatile memory device on the dual in-line memory module carrier; mounting a non-volatile memory on the dual in-line memory module carrier on a side opposite the volatile memory device; mounting an uninterruptible power supply on the dual in-line memory module carrier for maintaining a memory module power when a system power input decays; and mounting a controller logic integrated circuit on the dual in-line memory module carrier coupled to the volatile memory device, the non-volatile memory, and the uninterruptible power supply for copying data content of the volatile memory device to the non-volatile memory when the uninterruptible power supply detects the decay of the system power input to a first cross-over level.

  • Patent number: 8990489
    Abstract: A transparent four rank memory module has a front side and a back side. The front side has a third memory rank stacked on a first memory rank. The back side has a fourth memory rank stacked on a second memory rank. An emulator coupled to the memory module activates and controls one individual memory rank from either the first memory rank, the second memory rank, the third memory rank, or the fourth memory rank based on the signals received from a memory controller.

  • Patent number: 8767463
    Abstract: A method of operation of a non-volatile dynamic random access memory system including: accessing a dynamic random access memory; managing a delay-locked-loop control in the dynamic random access memory; sourcing timing inputs to the dynamic random access memory by a control logic unit with the delay-locked-loop control disabled including: selecting a back-up interface through a first multiplexer and a second multiplexer, asserting an on-board termination, and accessing data in the dynamic random access memory by the control logic unit at a lower frequency; and enabling a memory control interface by the control logic unit, with the delay-locked-loop control enabled including: selecting a host interface through the first multiplexer, the second multiplexer, or a combination thereof, disabling the on-board termination, and accessing the data in the dynamic random access memory by the memory control interface at a delay-locked-loop frequency.

  • Patent number: 8423724
    Abstract: A method for operating a dynamic back-up storage system includes: providing a high speed memory including a first rank memory device and subsequent ranks of memory devices; providing a non-volatile memory for saving data from the high speed memory; and providing a control logic unit for controlling access, of a central processing unit that executes a program, from the high speed memory including restoring the subsequent ranks of memory devices while the central processing unit is executing the program from the first rank memory device.
