Carlos J Gonzalez, Alan Douglas Bryce, Sergey Anatolievich Gorobets, Alan David Bennett: Adaptive deterministic grouping of blocks into multi-block units. Parsons Hsue & de Runtz, June 30, 2005: US20050144516-A1

The present invention presents techniques for the linking of physical blocks of a non-volatile memory into composite logical structures or “metablocks”. After determining an initial linking of good physical blocks into metablocks, a record of the linking is maintained in the non-volatile memory wher ...

Kevin M Conley, Daniel C Guterman, Carlos J Gonzalez: Novel method and structure for efficient data verification operation for non-volatile memories. Parsons Hsue & de Runtz, September 8, 2005: US20050195653-A1

An improved flash EEPROM memory-based storage subsystem includes one or more flash memory arrays, each with three data registers and a controller circuit. During a flash program operation, one data register is used to control the program operation, a second register is used to hold the target data v ...

Carlos J Gonzalez, Kevin M Conley: Flash memory data correction and scrub techniques. Parsons Hsue & de Runtz, April 7, 2005: US20050073884-A1

In order to maintain the integrity of data stored in a flash memory that are susceptible to being disturbed by operations in adjacent regions of the memory, disturb events cause the data to be read, corrected and re-written before becoming so corrupted that valid data cannot be recovered. The someti ...

Carlos J Gonzalez, Daniel C Guterman: Reducing the effects of noise in non-volatile memories through multiple reads. Parsons Hsue & de Runtz, November 24, 2005: US20050259472-A1

Storage elements are read multiple times and the results are accumulated and averaged for each storage element to reduce the effects of noise or other transients in the storage elements and associated circuits that may adversely affect the quality of the read. Several techniques may be employed, inc ...

Carlos J Gonzalez, Andrew Tomlin: Flash memory system startup operation. Parsons Hsue & de Runtz, July 21, 2005: US20050160217-A1

Multiple copies of firmware code for controlling operation of a non-volatile flash memory system are stored at different suitable locations of the flash memory of a memory system. A map of addresses of these locations is also stored in the flash memory. Upon initialization of the memory system, boot ...

Sergey Anatolievich Gorobets, Reuven Elhamias, Carlos J Gonzalez, Kevin M Conley: Corrected data storage and handling methods. Parsons Hsue & de Runtz, February 23, 2006: US20060039196-A1

In order to maintain the integrity of data stored in a flash memory that are susceptible to being disturbed by operations in adjacent regions of the memory, disturb events cause the data to be read, corrected and re-written before becoming so corrupted that valid data cannot be recovered. The someti ...

Yoram Cedar, Carlos J Gonzalez: Methods in a reader for one time password generating device. Winston & Strawn, March 20, 2008: US20080072058-A1

A portable one time password reader for use in two factor authentication systems and methods allows for the display of a one time password when coupled to a device that generates the value of the password. The reader of the present invention provides power and if appropriate a real time clock signal ...

Carlos J Gonzalez, Daniel C Guterman: Methods of Cell Population Distribution Assisted Read Margining. Davis Wright Tremaine Sandisk Corporation, March 27, 2008: US20080077841-A1

A memory using techniques to extract the data content of its storage elements, when the distribution of stored states is degraded, is presented. If the distribution of stored states has degraded, secondary evaluations of the memory cells are performed using modified read conditions. Based upon the r ...
