  • Patent number: 9176864
    Abstract: A non-volatile memory organized into flash erasable blocks sorts units of data according to a temperature assigned to each unit of data, where a higher temperature indicates a higher probability that the unit of data will suffer subsequent rewrites due to garbage collection operations. The units of data either come from a host write or from a relocation operation. The data are sorted either for storing into different storage portions, such as SLC and MLC, or into different operating streams, depending on their temperatures. This allows data of similar temperature to be dealt with in a manner appropriate for its temperature in order to minimize rewrites. Examples of a unit of data include a logical group and a block.
