A method and system for intelligent bit recovery identifies toggling bits, which change in value from one read to the next, and examines a subset of potential bit patterns. The subset is a fraction of the potential bit patterns, and is based on an understanding of the flash memory and the problems t ...

Paul Roger Stonelake, Douglas Alan Prins, Anand Krisnamurthi Kulkarni: System and method of protecting metadata from nand flash failures. December 20, 2012: US20120324148-A1

Methods and systems are disclosed for protecting metadata from NAND flash failures. With data striped across multiple flash memory chips, the flash memory multiple chips may store multiple copies of metadata (and potentially ECC). The metadata stored in the multiple copies on the flash memory chips ...

A method and system intelligent bit recovery is provided. The intelligent bit recovery determines which bits are toggling, and examines a subset of the potential bit patterns to determine which in the subset of potential bit patterns is valid. The subset is a fraction of the potential bit patterns, ...
