  • Patent number: 10915400
    Abstract: One or more blocks from a pool of storage area blocks of the memory component are allocated to a first set of purposed blocks. First write operations are performed to write first data to first data stripes at user blocks of the memory component. Whether the blocks in the first set of purposed blocks satisfy a condition indicating that the first set of purposed blocks are to be retired is determined. Responsive to the blocks in the first set of purposed blocks satisfying the condition, one or more other blocks from the pool of storage area blocks of the memory component are allocated to a second set of purposed blocks. Second write operations are performed to write second data to second data stripes at the user blocks of the memory component.

  • Publication number: 20210034274
    Abstract: A processing device in a memory system receives a first read request from a host system, wherein the first read request is directed to first data stored at a first address in a block of the memory component. The processing device determines that the first address is located within a first region of the block and increments a read counter for the block by a default amount. The processing device further receives a second read request from the host system, wherein the second read request is directed to second data stored at a second address in a block of the memory component, determines that the second address is located within a second region of the block and increments the read counter for the block by a scaled amount.

  • Publication number: 20210035649
    Abstract: A processing device in a memory system determines that data stored in a first block of a plurality of blocks of a memory component satisfies a first threshold criterion pertaining to an age of the data. Responsive to the data stored in the first block satisfying the first threshold criterion, the processing device maintains a first counter to track a number of read operations performed on the first block. The processing device further determines that the data stored in the first block does not satisfy the first threshold criterion, and in response, maintains a second counter to track a number of read operations performed on a super block comprising the plurality of blocks.

  • Publication number: 20210035642
    Abstract: A request to perform a write operation at a memory component can be received. A destination block of the memory component to store data of the write operation can be determined. A voltage pulse can be applied to the destination block that places a memory cell of the destination block at a voltage level associated with a high voltage state. Responsive to applying the voltage pulse to the destination block, an erase operation for the destination block can be performed to change the voltage level of the memory cell from the high voltage state to a low voltage state. A write operation can be performed to write the data to the destination block that is at the low voltage state.

  • Patent number: 10871923
    Abstract: A program operation is executed on a memory sub-system. During execution of the program operation, a request to execute a read operation on the memory sub-system is received. In response to receiving the request, a program suspend operation to suspend the program operation is executed. The read operation is executed on the memory sub-system in response to a completion of the program suspend operation. In response to completion of the read operation, a program resume operation is executed. A program suspend delay period is established following execution of the program resume operation during which a subsequent read operation is stored in a queue.

  • Patent number: 10872009
    Abstract: A number of operations that have been performed on one or more memory cells that are proximate to a particular memory cell of the memory component can be identified. A determination as to whether the particular memory cell has transitioned from a state associated with a decreased error rate to another state associated with an increased error rate can be made based on the identified number of operations. In response to determining that the particular memory cell has transitioned from the state associated with the decreased error rate to the another state associated with the increased error rate, an operation can be performed on the particular memory cell to transition the particular memory cell from the another state associated with the increased error rate to the state associated with the decreased error rate.

  • Publication number: 20200293203
    Abstract: A memory block of a non-volatile memory device is identified. The memory block has a first region and a second region, where a storage density of the first region is larger than the second region. Data is programmed at the first region of the memory block. An attribute of the memory block based on a sensor is received during programming of the data at the memory block. The attribute characterizes the data being programmed at the first region. The attribute is stored at a volatile during programming of the data at the memory block. The attribute is stored on a memory page of the second region responsive to the programming of the data at the first region being complete.

  • Patent number: 10747612
    Abstract: A variety of applications can include use of parity groups in a memory system with the parity groups arranged for data protection of the memory system. Each parity group can be structured with multiple data pages in which to write data and a parity page in which to write parity data generated from the data written in the multiple data pages. Each data page of a parity group can have storage capacity to include metadata of data written to the data page. Information can be added to the metadata of a data page with the information identifying an asynchronous power loss status of data pages that precede the data page in an order of writing data to the data pages of the parity group. The information can be used in re-construction of data in the parity group following an uncorrectable error correction code error in writing to the parity group.
