Application: Data integrity protection for relocating data in a memory system (Patent ID: US20240086337A1)

The patent filed by Micron Technology Inc. describes methods, apparatuses, and systems related to data management and security in a memory device. The memory device computes hash values of stored data and uses these hash values to validate data during operations such as moving data between memory regions. By storing hashes of transactions and records of transactions, the memory system ensures the identification and traceability of transactions within and among memory systems.

The patent claims detail a device with multiple memory regions and a controller that generates hash values of data stored in one region, copies the data to another region, and validates the data during the copying process using the hash value. The validation process ensures the successful transfer of data between memory regions, with additional features such as erasing data after validation, preventing incomplete data copying, and generating alerts in case of unsuccessful data transfer. The device also includes a cache for temporary data storage, allowing for efficient data movement while maintaining data integrity through hash-based validation mechanisms.
