Abstract

This scheme permits efficient error correction for a device that store data blocks (pages) and accesses them cyclically using roll mode, where a roll-mode operation consists of reading or writing data lines beginning at any line of a block, continuing to the end of the block, and then back to the beginning until all lines are read/written.
