IEEE 1890-2018

IEEE Standard for Error Correction Coding of Flash Memory Using Low-Density Parity Check Codes

A two-level code construction scheme for non-volatile memories (NVM) that is based on low-density parity-check codes is specified in this standard. This scheme constructs an auxiliary codeword that encodes a subset of bits from the primary packets stored in an NVM memory unit. The auxiliary codeword is decoded only when the detection of at least one of the primary codewords fails. The encoding and decoding techniques for this scheme are presented. The two-level scheme outperforms the traditional one-level method while it requires only a small memory overhead and negligible latency. Moreover, it outperforms the one-level scheme that uses a code that is twice as long in the low raw bit error rate regime.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
