  • Patent number: 10915395
    Abstract: Various examples are directed to systems and methods for reading a memory component. A processing device may receive an indication that a read operation at a physical address of the memory component failed. The processing device may execute a plurality of read retry operations at the physical address. The processing device may access a first syndrome weight describing a first error correction operation performed on a result of a first read retry operation of the plurality of read retry operations and a second syndrome weight describing a second error correction operation performed on a result of a second read retry operation of the plurality of read retry operations. The processing device may select a first threshold voltage associated with the first read retry operation based at least in part on the first syndrome weight and the second syndrome weight.

  • Publication number: 20200319827
    Abstract: Various examples are directed to systems and methods of managing a memory device. The memory device may receive a read request describing a logical address at the memory device. The memory device may obtain a table entry associated with the logical address. The table entry comprises a physical address corresponding to the logical address and a write temperature data indicating a write temperature for the logical address. The memory device may determine a corrected threshold voltage for reading the physical address based at least in part on the write temperature data and read the physical address using the corrected threshold voltage.

  • Patent number: 10796745
    Abstract: Devices and techniques for temperature informed memory refresh are described herein. A temperature counter can be updated in response to a memory device write performed under an extreme temperature. Here, the write is performed on a memory device element in the memory device. The memory device element can be sorted above other memory device elements in the memory device based on the temperature counter. Once sorted to the top of these memory device elements, a refresh can be performed the memory device element.

  • Publication number: 20200234775
    Abstract: A memory sub-system can be determined to be operating within a target operating characteristic based on a threshold success rate associated with error control operations using a particular parameter. Upon determining that the memory sub-system is operating within the target operating characteristic, a sticky read mode is entered by performing subsequent read operations using the particular parameter. It is determined that additional error control operations are triggered for at least a first threshold number of read operations using the particular parameter during the sticky read mode. Upon determining that the additional error control operations are triggered for at least the first threshold number of read operations using the particular parameter during the sticky read mode, the sticky read mode is exited by performing further read operations using a default parameter associated with the memory sub-system.

  • Patent number: 10579307
    Abstract: Devices and techniques for correcting for power loss in NAND memory devices are disclosed herein. The NAND memory devices may comprise a number of physical pages. For example, a memory controller may detect a power loss indicator at the NAND flash memory. The memory controller may identify a last-written physical page and determine whether the last-written physical page comprises more than a threshold number of low-read-margin cells. If the last-written physical page comprises more than the threshold number of low-read-margin cells, the memory controller may provide a programming voltage to at least the low-read-margin cells.
