(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDES DE VERROUILLAGE DE BLOCS MEMOIRES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Memory block locking apparatus and methods are provided. A method of operating a memory device includes preventing programming of upper and lower bound regions of a memory array of the memory device and any regions of the memory array having addresses between addresses of the upper and lower bound regions or preventing programming of any regions of the memory array having addresses greater than the address of the upper bound region and/or addresses less than the address of the lower bound region.
(FR)Cette invention concerne un appareil et des procédés de verrouillage de blocs mémoires. Un moyen d'exploitation d'un dispositif mémoire consiste à empêcher la programmation des zones limites supérieure et inférieure d'un réseau mémoire du dispositif mémoire et des zones du réseau mémoire ayant des adresses situées entre les adresses des zones limites supérieure et inférieure ou à empêcher la programmation des zones du réseau mémoire ayant des adresses situées au-dessus de l'adresse de la zone limite supérieure et/ou des adresses situées au-dessous de l'adresse de la zone limite inférieure.
