Publication number: US20210181954A1
Application number: 17/168,786

Abstract:
Systems and methods presented herein provide for mitigating errors in a storage device. In one embodiment, a storage system includes a storage device comprising a plurality of storage areas operable to store data, and a controller operable to evaluate operating conditions of the storage device, to perform a background scan on a first of the storage areas to characterize a read retention of the first storage area, and to adjust a read signal of the first storage area based on the characterized read retention and the operating conditions of the storage device.

Publication number: US20210089397A1
Application number: 17/115,940

Abstract:
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.

Publication number: US20210398560A1
Application number: 16/946,386

Abstract:
A data storage device can consist of a data storage medium that has a recording surface accessed by a first transducing head suspended by a first actuator and a second transducing head suspended by a second actuator. The first actuator may be configured to access a first region of the recording surface while the second actuator is configured to access a second region of the recording surface. The first and second regions can be separate and non-overlapping.
