Application number: 17/115,940

Read parameter estimation techniques are provided that obtain information from multiple read operations to customize read parameters for data recovery. One method comprises performing the following steps, in response to a decoding failure of a page of a memory or a codeword of the memory: obtaining at least three read values of the page or codeword; and processing the at least three read values to determine read parameters comprising: (i) a log likelihood ratio, and/or (ii) a center read reference voltage, wherein the determination is based on a signal count of a number of bits falling in particular regions of multiple regions of the memory and wherein the determined read parameters are used for a decoding of the page or codeword following the decoding failure and/or a subsequent read operation following a successful decoding of the page or codeword.
