  • Patent number: 10372543
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a memory system is connectable to a host. The memory system includes a nonvolatile first memory, a volatile second memory and a controller. The nonvolatile first memory stores translation information. The translation information associates a logical address and a physical address. The volatile second memory stores location information. The location information associates a logical address and a location where the translation information is stored in the first memory. The controller saves a first memory image in the first memory at a first timing, and saves a second memory image in the first memory at a second timing different from the first timing. The first memory image is a part of a memory image of the location information. The second memory image is another part, different form the first memory image, of the memory image of the location information.

    Abstract: To provide a Group III nitride semiconductor light-emitting device exhibiting the improved light extraction efficiency as well as reducing the influence of polarization that a p-type conductivity portion and an n-type conductivity portion occur in the AlGaN layer caused by the Al composition variation, and a production method therefor. A first p-type contact layer is a p-type AlGaN layer. A second p-type contact layer is a p-type AlGaN layer. The Al composition in the first p-type contact layer is reduced with distance from a light-emitting layer. The Al composition in the second p-type contact layer is reduced with distance from the light-emitting layer. The Al composition in the second p-type contact layer is lower than that in the first p-type contact layer. The Al composition variation rate to the unit thickness in the second p-type contact layer is higher than that in the first p-type contact layer.
