  • Publication number: 20180302104
    Abstract: Techniques for processing bits associated with an “N” multiple level cell NAND flash memory, such as a QLC NAND flash memory, are described. In an example, a system generates a symbol based on the bits. The symbol corresponds to at least two bits. The system encodes the symbol in a non-binary codeword and stores the non-binary codeword in the “N” multiple level cell NAND flash memory based on a mapping between symbols and voltage levels of the “N” multiple level cell NAND flash memory. The system initializes a non-binary decoding procedure based on asymmetric crossover probabilities between the voltage levels. The asymmetric crossover probabilities are defined based on the mapping between the symbols and the voltage level. The system decodes the non-binary codeword based on the non-binary decoding procedure.
