Data retention refers to how long data can be maintained while a storage device is powered down. Apacer offers optimization strategies to help customers achieve the ideal balance of data retention with P/E cycles for industrial applications.
This technology ensures that whenever data moves from the host to the controller or from the controller to DRAM or NAND flash, error checking is applied. In some cases, error correction will also be part of the circuit.
Developed for read-intensive applications in particular, Smart Read Refresh™ is employed to make sure that during read operations, when the read operation threshold is reached, the data is refreshed by re-writing it to a different block for subsequent use
