  • Patent number: 10452530
    Abstract: It is an object to provide a technique that can enhance data rewriting tolerance. An information processing apparatus includes a first nonvolatile memory and a second nonvolatile memory. The first nonvolatile memory stores first data. The second nonvolatile memory stores second data that is higher in update frequency than the first data. This allows the data rewriting tolerance in the device to be enhanced. For example, data of a dynamic map that is a dynamically changeable map can be applied to at least the second data among the first data and the second data.
